We pre-booked Southwinds because of the difficulty in finding rooms in Key West at the last minute, even out of high season; and we were influenced by price in this expensive town. So we were not surprised to find that the motel presented a well-used appearance: bits of our room verged on the dilapidated. However, everything was clean and working: the lady at reception was chatty and helpful; and the sink & storage unit (which we scarcely used) had obviously been recently installed in our room. (We got this room as an up-grade, because our intended room had been taken for an extra night by the previous occupant.)
The location has many advantages, although it is a fair walk to the "business end" of Duval St. and Mallory Square.
All in all, we were happy.
