I found the gentlemen at the front desk to be the best part of our stay here, we were only there for one night, but he sold the rooms like we were buying million dollar real estate, he told us about the Danube pine that the hotel was made of and how he had done his best to make the... More

Original plan was to just visit Key West for the day and see the sights! However, we soon got caught up in the holiday/party atmosphere and needed somewhere to crash for the night. With it being the height of the summer, our hopes didnt hold out for much and was expecting a pricey sum to pay for a nights stay.... More

We stayed in the older rooms, which were fine. They were nothing fancy, but they were clean. Great location, but you have to pay to park your car. So we rented a moped which I highly recommend and parked our car for free at the moped lot. They just put in a nice pool and have remodeled some of the... More

The hotel was great and service was friendly. The location was perfect in the center of Duval St. Brand new pool that was beautiful. No place to park however, so you must pay to park. No wifi so I was a little off the grid which wasn't a terrible thing. We travelled with our 9 y.o. The room was clean,... More

We have stayed at this hotel multiple times now and will continue to do so. You absolutely cannot beat the location! It's in the center of Duval street, they have a large Mardi Gras style balcony to look out over Duval, walking distance to all of the hot spots. Staff really care appreciates their clientele, rooms are small but very... More

We actually stayed at Southern Cross Hotel back in 2005 and again for our wedding in 2006. Both times we were thrilled to have no frills and not have to pay for them either. I'm happy to say we just finished a 3 night stay and it has gotten even better for a very reasonable price. They have done major... More

Great location at the 'top end' of Duval Street, but although we were expecting a small room, it could have been cleaner. A maze of stairs and hallways, one night we heard someone trying to force entry to one of the rooms. There is a new pool which is yet to open. There is no parking and the hotel recommendation...

This hotel lacked amenities to point of discomfort throughout the stay. No parking, No Wifi, No ice machine (we spent about $15 on ice), No fridge, No coffee maker, No balcony furniture, No fresh towels ...We paid a lot for so little! Friends say that place used to have reasonable rates but even older rooms are expensive since renovations. They... More

We picked this hotel because of the location, we wanted to be close to the attractions and places we planned to go. Some of the bad reviews had us a little scared but we were pleasantly surprised. We arrived to the new lobby on Eaton street, very modern & beautiful. We were shown to our room thru the upgraded walkways,... More

Southern Cross is a wonderful place to stay as it is right on Duval . We have stayed in both old and new rooms and never a problem. This is probably our tenth time to stay there. The pool is not open yet but waterfall creates atmosphere already. We just can't imagine staying any place else for value and location.
