“Small Rooms but Nice Staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We have been staying at 525 United in Key West for almost 20 years. It was recently bought and renamed Southernmost Inn. The rooms are small and used to have queen beds. Under the new management, they replaced many with king beds, so the rooms are very cramped. Our bed had a foot board and we got bruises on our legs from bumping into it every time we walked around the bed. In addition, there was no dresser or place to put our stuff. They did have some baskets in the open closet (no doors), but that was not the same as having a dresser. The continental breakfast was very good and served by Dennis, who was very nice and accommodating. Housekeeping was also good. The rooms were very clean, which is why you should not expect to check in at 4pm, which is check-in time. Most people, including us, didn't get our rooms until around 4:30pm. The desk staff (Dawson and Ivy) were great. We had asked for a walk-in shower in our reservation, which wasn't in place when we arrived, but Dawson fixed that, which is good because we stayed for 9 nights!

Room Tip: This hotel has lots of steps, not very accessible on the whole. Several units have large old tubs, w...

Just finished a relaxing 17 day stay at Southernmost Inn. I'm a regular winter visitor and have stayed at a few Old Town hotels/resorts in KW and was very satisfied with Southernmost Inn in comparison. While not a fancy B&B resort type property, it has its own unique charm and appeal in the way it is laid out "compound" style around the two pools. My room was immaculate but a little Spartan in size. But size or furnishings are not important to me, give me cleanliness and a mold free shower! The staff led by Jonathan was very friendly and helpful, including those who attended to the included continental breakfast each morning, and made sure we guests were satisfied. Housekeeping was great and NEVER failed to check with me each day to see if I needed anything. All in all a very pleasant stay and I will be returning.

Room Tip: I was satisfied with my room which was in a building with a hallway and three other rooms. Although...

The Southernmost Inn is located in the perfect part of Key West, walkable to everything! The rooms are lovely, clean and nicely appointed. This is a great option for folks that want a little more space than a hotel room and want to be near things without being in the middle of the craziness!

Really enjoyed our stay at the Southernmost Inn (formerly Pearl's). Just off the quieter end of Duval St. & within walking distance of the beach. The heated pool & the hot tub were very inviting & right outside our door, as was the patio bar. The staff was very knowledgeable & helpful. Really couldn't have stayed in a more convenient place. Park in the City garage (about a 15 minute walk) for $13 a night as we didn't need a car. The Inn charges $27, but they'll direct you to the public garage. Breakfast was fine although the single cup coffee maker is slow.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms are a little noisy, but we loved being near the pool & bar.

Spent a week in February in one of the smaller sloped simply furnished attic rooms. Location is convenient to experience Duval. The woman named Ivy at the front desk is nice and helpful with information about getting around the area.
