Without researching hotels in the area, my boo called this hotel out of the blue; ended up finding a 2 bedroom as someone canceled at the last minute so it was good. Can't remember what room we stayed in. Once arriving the placed looked pretty clean and very close to everything in Key West. Private parking is available which is... More

we just spent 2 nights there, 3 adult children and a mom.one room. the 2 bedroom was fine for us. the location let us walk to the historical places, the beach, the boats etc. we thought the location was good for adults. the rooms are a bit small, but the property was well kept up , clean, good location.

This motel, with a sitting and kitchen area is good for the price, when considering the cost of similar accomodations in Key West. Not fancy and somewhat tired, our room was clean and very functional.

I was staying in Key West with two girlfriends and we thought this place was perfect for our needs. Bedroom with kitchenette and sofa bed. Bathroom a bit small but had on the typical amenities. I always appreciated a full size coffee maker. They had juice and muffins available at the desk in the mornings. The location was at one... More

Southwinds motel was a basic motel. The front desk clerk was...well, quirky and a tad overzealous. We had to wait about 45 minutes to check in because he chatted so long with the people in front of us. The room was large, tiled floor, bathroom was adequate. The beds were hard as rocks though. If they replaced the mattresses I... More

My wife and I stayed one night at this motel as breakfast was included in the price. Motel has many units but discovered is a very old and tired motel. Value for what we were charged per night US$392.62 and what we received is a disgrace. Only had one dresser to put a suitcase on, other suitcases on the floor.... More

We spent a couple of nights at the Southwinds. We chose it for the prices and didn't expect much going in. We knew we wouldn't be staying at the hotel much so we didn't need anything too fancy. The location is pretty good. It is a little bit of a walk to the north end of Duvall Street and Mallory... More

Location was really great. Off street parking, walkable to Higgs Beach, Southernmost Point, main part of Duval, ect. Room was tiny- #25. Smelled a little mildewy/public-restroom-esque when we first got there, but seemed to improve by day two (maybe we got used to it) Small mediocre bed, passable bathroom, not much room to put things. But you are in Key... More
