The Galleon Resort And Marina
Ranked #46 of 51 Hotels in Key West
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 3, 2014

A group of 9 of us recently stayed at this resort. We had a great time. Our rental was overlooking the marina. It had 3 bedrooms and a loft for sleeping. The location can't be better. It is a short walk to Duval with all the attractions. I would definitely recommend it and stay again.

This home when home is too cold which is whenever temperatures in the Northeast drop below 40. Great staff, great views, and centrally located in the best part of Key West. Food, shops and spirits are within walking (or stumbling) distance, but you don't have to stray too far from the world class Tiki Bar downstairs on the pier (which subsequently is the beginning of the walk that leads around the entire marina - A&B, Conch Republic, Schooner Wharf, Turkle Kraal's, 1/2 Shell, Pepe's, etc.). Or you can hit the Front Street for a two block walk that leads onto to Duval and all it's wonder's. **Spoiler** - If you grow tired of battling the cell phone and camera toting mobs, grab a couple of drinks and hit the roof for an unbeatable view of the sunset.

Staying at the Galleon is the best location in Key West as it is off Duval
Street and everything is very close. The setting of the resort is beautiful, with the marina and beautiful blue water of the gulf. The service was excellent

We have been staying at the Galleon annually since 1997. It is about two blocks to Duval and the center of night life, and it is directly fronting the Key West marina, and their Tiki Bar and sun lounging area is right on the gulf. All the great spots are within easy walking or biking distance. Plus, we've always found their staff to be friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The F Building faces the marina.

After one month at The Galleon I was totally happy with the accomodations and staff.
Although we are not owners, Ken, Adam Thelma and Louis always made us feel like welcome guests. They were very helpful and professional, always meeting my many ++requests with a happy smile. I never witnessed rude behavior toward any guest.
PS . Louis will not take mojitos while Thelma is there (kidding)! and that Adam character hmmmm..
haha, they are all great!
The condo is a fully functioning home away from home, with maid service mid week. Having seperate bedrooms and baths makes it ideal for families and friends to stay together.
The Galleon provides fun raffles, bingo and cook-outs. Perfect location in Old Town, walk every where.

WIFI STINKS, but you should not be on the internet anyway, you're on VACATION!

Room Tip: any room has a great view.

I agree with other reviews....terrible WiFi, and most of the employees were very grumpy and mean, especially the blond lady behind the desk (Faith) beware, she was rude to the other staff who worked the desk, and to the guests. She let it fly right in front of the guests!

They take deposits for everything, and are really mean about it too. The maintenance manager is also rude.

The floors in the units are FILTHY.....wear your shoes at all times. I saw them wash the floors with filthy water.

There were not enough umbrellas on the deck, and the people who own time shares there reserve the chairs starting at 6:30 am with towels, and then don't use them all day.

The Tiki bar is nice, but it attracts all the locals who sit there all day and smoke.

But if you want LOCATION, this is the place...you do not need a car ( if you had one they are are very strict with the parking permits.

Room Tip: rooms on the marina side are very noisy with boat engines and the smell of diesel fumes, but the vie...

Rooms were cool with modern, upgraded showers. Pretty view of the marina from certain rooms...had a great time all around but the wifi was AWFUL! And when I went to the front desk, we even tried there...on their own wifi...wasn't working on my phone nor others phones. Their answer...to call THEIR technical service to figure it out. Only there for a night...really didn't feel like staying on the phone for hours with their tech service just to tell me they are having an issue and to try back later. Ugh! Yes, you are in Key West and looking to relax but just a little time to upload all our fun to facebook to make our friends jealous, would have been nice.
