This was our third time visiting the motel because we enjoy the retro style of the place. They've been re-doing the interiors for the past few years now and we always look forward to going there. It's only a block from the beach and a block from Duval St. For us, it's the perfect place to setup and go anywhere... More

Room was clean and cool, white decor with roof fan, AC, fridge/ Micro. No phone though. Small bathroom but plenty of hot water.... More

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

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.

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
