Alexander Palms Court
Lonely Planet review
Sprinkled around a large, lagoon-style pool are a cluster of rooms, studios, and one- and two-bedroom suites. It's all very private, with a tall fence to keep out the looky-loos and a locked gate to keep out, well, everyone but you. Built in the 1950s, its unique style stands out from the proliferation of 19th-century Conch guesthouses.
Located at the south end of the island, it's more of a walk to the sights of Key West, but it's also not plagued by the noise. The accommodations are clean, spacious and comfortable, with paintings by local artists adorning the walls. Furnishings are run of the mill, with decor that's neither offensive nor particularly imaginative. It's kind of like staying with a friend who found some really great things at a thrift store: it's casual, low-key and you don't have to worry about putting your feet up.
