“Not fancy but FANTASTIC”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

If you're not high maintenance and like to relax on vacation, this is the place for you! We spent one night in Key West and then three at Parmer's and it was fabulous. Rooms are basic but very clean and have everything you need. Staff is fantastic. We spent a couple nights relaxing in a hammock by the water with Coronas in hand. A true vacation.

We have stayed at Parmer's a couple of times over the years but had not been back for a some years. We were very, very satisfied with our stay (December 10 - 15) and will most definitely be back. The property was very quiet, the rooms were clean and the air conditioning was nice and cold (yes, even in December we needed it!). The staff was friendly and helpful and there was always someone on the property to help you if needed. There are restaurants nearby and grocery shopping on Big Pine Key. We swam in the (heated) pool, kayaked, fished and biked and then spent our evenings relaxing on our porch. We took a day trip to Key West and spent lots of time exploring Big Pine and No Name Keys on our bikes. We are already thinking about our next trip down and Parmer's will be at the top of the list of places to stay!

Room Tip: Take a look at a map of the property before booking - there are many different room types to choose...

We desperately searched for accommodations in the keys during this busy week between Christmas and New Years with no luck in less we wanted to spend $400 or more a night. My wife stumbled upon Parmer's and I quickly went to trip advisor to view reviews before we booked. Needless to say everything was as described. This resort has a full variety of room types and sizes. It is exceptionally clean. We stayed in one of the smallest rooms (tuna). It had 2 twin beds and a small bathroom with tub/shower and a tv which we never used. I like the their policy of not having phones in the rooms and housekeeping only when you need it. Once you get your keys nobody goes in your unit unless you want. The resort is very very very quiet. It's a great place to grab a hammock or adirondack chair or sit by the pool and read a book. The service at the front desk was excellent and very pleasant. Every employee that I met wanted to make sure all of needs were taken care of. I know it's a long review but I wanted to take away any doubts you may have about staying here. It's a great quiet getaway.

Very nice accommodations for an overnighter....heading to Key West. The nice thing about this resort, it was .5 miles from Boondocks, which we stopped and stayed for hours... Very relaxing, on the water, peaceful. Priced right! Plus free breakfast before leaving to Key West...nice touch! Thank you and will stay again.

A hidden gem off the main highway. No highway noise, airplane/airport or traditional hotel hallway noise. Staff (met 4) are super friendly and want to help and make your visit to the Keys awesome. Rooms are divided up 'mobile home' buildings and bungalows. Cute, clean, clean, quiet and on the ocean. Clean, welcoming pool that people were actually using. Simple breakfast buffet and laundry facilities. They have Tide and dryer sheets. Little bugs known as 'no-see-'ems' attack in the early a.m. and p.m.. Can't do much about 'em but they are nasty little boogers who bite. Keep you feet under the covers. They can come thru the screens. Consider it a 'feature'.

Room Tip: Book a year in advanced if thinking about staying in the Keys over Christmas/New Years. This place...

Parmer's Resort is on a quiet road, with a beautiful view of the water. It's quiet, relaxing, and we loved sitting by the water with a beautiful view and breeze. The rooms are great and comfortable and the staff is friendly as ever! They have everything you need! We will be back! We enjoyed our stay very much!

This hotel is at Mile Marker 29 or (MM 29). A really nice place, that is well run and well taken care of. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The parking is good and the rooms are nice, nothing super fancy; but well maintained and newly updated. I stayed in a basic room, it had a nice queen size bed, a reclining chair, two dressers, a 26" TV connected to Comcast cable. The bathroom had a shower and it had plenty of hot water. Outside of the room is a nice shaded wooden sitting area. The hotel has a nice pool that is heated to around 80 F. This hotel is water front and has some nice views of the water, bridges, wild life and the sunset. There is also a breakfast station until about 10 or 11 AM. This place is the place where you just want to check in and be left alone. If you need the room to be cleaned or you need more towels, just let them know and they will handle it, otherwise they are going to leave you alone and let you just relax. I really enjoyed my stay and I will be back at some point in the future.

Room Tip: If it's just you, then go for the economy room; but if you have more than 1 or 2, then go for th...
