We stayed at the Southwinds in February. The rooms were very nice (recently redone), staff was super friendly and we enjoyed our stay very much! It is a nice walk to Duval Street. We will definitely be staying again!

rooms are nicely appointed. kitchen, fridge, microwave, dining table. Separate bedroom and bathroom. large screen TV in both rooms. Bed was comfortable Having said that, the rooms are in need of an overhaul. Stall shower very small and the fixtures need replacing. No drain cover! Sink very small and faucet hard to use. Cleaning service was spotty. None the first...

We were here at the start of Spring Break in March. The desk clerk at check-in was super friendly and welcoming. Our room wasn't ready, which we expected since we arrived late morning but we could leave our car in their lot and they texted me when our room was done about an hour later. The room was spacious, and...

I rarely write reviews either positive or negative but in this case I will take the time to do so. I have traveled to several vacation spots throughout the country but Key West is now my favorite, I stayed at Southwinds Hotel which is two blocks from the beach and within walking distance to the great night life there. I...

The room was small but had everything we needed. It had been updated style wise but did have some wear and tear. Room was clean though and the staff was very nice. The pools were smaller but had sun beds and having a quick dip was refreshing. We could walk to Duvall Street in minutes and get to all the...

This was our fifth trip to Key West and we've stayed at different hotel/motels each time. Southwinds Motel will definitely be one we return to. Free continental breakfast, which was far superior to some I've seen, free parking, which is awesome, you don't have that with many hotels you are a block from a decent beach and have use of...

We were there as part of our honeymoon and were unfortunally assembled in a very small room. Despite of that, it was clean and well located, with delicious muffins for breakfast. I found it completelly overpriced, but I got to know that all hotels in Key West are high priced, even the simple ones such as Southwinds.

And very clean. Comfortable King size bed. Really liked the location--Close to the Southernmost point, a short walk to restaurants and bars, and right across the street from Anna's Cuban deli. Your reservation at the hotel gives you a pass to a nearby beach. The beach is really small but hospitable. Three nice pools. Really, a great (and less pricey)...
