When my husband and I decide on a spur of the moment weekend trip to Key West we have found that the Southwind Motel fits the bill. It is economical, and within walking distance to all of the Old Town attractions. Each time we have stayed there the rooms have always been clean and tidy, and the staff is always friendly. We stayed this past weekend and were pleasantly surprised to find that the rooms have started to be renovated and updated. Our room (#11) was quite comfortable and clean. Basic amenities provided, plus a refrigerator in room is especially handy. If you are looking for a plush resort stay, this isn't your place. But if you are in town to play for a few days and want to stay in a quiet, comfortable bare bones motel in heart of all of the activity that Key West has to provide, I suggest you give the Southwind a chance. The room was especially handy for the Hemingway 5K that we ran during our stay. The race started at the Southernmost Hotel across the street, and whose rooms ranged from $272-500+ per night that weekend. I'll take a $99 room any time!
Ask for an updated room if any are available. They are quite an improvement from the previous rooms...
