Great motel. Room have a big fridge and a microwave. AC system cools the room very nice (it was 100 degrees outside and you could not feel it). Is one corner away from Duvall street where all the fun stuff is. Free coffee and muffins in the morning is a nice perk also.

We stayed here for a long weekend in key west. When we pulled in we were a little nervous. The nervousness went away when we saw the room. It is small but updated and nice! Great location and it was exactly what we were looking for! Nothing too fancy. Just a nice place to keep our stuff and sleep after... More

I was initially surprised by how clean and modern the room was. It looked as though it had recently been refurbished. Staff was friendly and the location is a short walk to the ocean. I would definitely stay there again.

Clean & cute room. Mattress was very old, so not a good night's sleep. Too much light came in the room--curtains are needed. Staff members were friendly. Muffins and coffee were great for morning. Love the location--would stay again.

Our stay at Southwinds Motel was a very pleasant stay. We found the staff to be very friendly and quick to service our needs. We were very pleased with the modern updates we saw and enjoyed having a small kitchen with sink, fridge and microwave for our use. The air conditioning was top notch with no humidity problems. And, the... More

It was first time we stayed at this motel and we enjoyed our time there. Clean room and a nice pool area. We stayed on the former Ocean Breeze motel section so I cannot comment on the Southern Winds side. The rooms are a little dated but we would have no hesitation to stay there again.

We stayed here for four nights as our motel of choice was fully booked. The prices at Southwinds are very reasonable for Key West and our room was really nice. We had initially booked for fewer nights and the motel was really accommodating in letting us keep the same room for the extra nights we wanted. It was a big... More

Our room was modern and clean. It was quite small but we survived. The beds could have been a little bit better. The air conditioning worked properly and the room wasn't humid. The pool was good. Actually we didn't even know that there was a pool so it was a surprise! The location is great and bikes were available (rental).

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean, spacious, and efficient. Price was amazing. No complaints about this hotel whatsoever. Close to everything, but half the price. Will be coming back.

My second stay at Southwinds and once again was impressed with the room. 2 persons, 1 full bedroom and a fold out couch in the other room. Great kitchen included. Also liked the on site laundry facility. Roosters galore outside added to the charm. Staff was very nice. Will stay there again.
