We stayed here for a week and couldn't have asked for a better place. It had everything we needed. The prices were very reasonable,rooms were very clean. It was far enough away from all the hustle and bustle but also close enough if you wanted to be in the middle of everything. The staff especially Claudia made us feel right... More

The room had anything and everything you need. Also they have three pools on the property. Free coffee and muffins in the morning is a real treat. It is a short walk to all the shops in the popular side of town or rent one of their bikes.

For the price we paid, I was a little comprehensive about the motel but as soon as I stepped foot on the property and saw how well it was maintained and how hard working the employees were, I knew we had made the correct decision to stay there. Claudia was great at check-in. Giving us lots of advice about rentals... More

Amazing, friendly staff! The place is old, but it has recently been remodeled and refurbished, and is SO CLEAN. We had such a positive experience with check in, and appreciated the map of Key West and the suggestions for where to go and what to do. We loved that there was no additional charge for wifi or parking, and the... More

We moved to Southwinds after having a bad experience at another hotel, and we were delighted with the change! The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable and the service absolutely second to none. Considering the price - which was $60 less a night than the place we were staying in - you get everything you need from towels for the... More

We booked Southwinds Motel online. We booked a king room, with wifi and parking included. No meals mentioned. What a pleasant surprise when we arrived, we had parking outside our room, we were greeted by the friendliest staff and made so welcome. The room had lovely modern decor with fridge and microwave and the bed and pillows exceptional. The motel... More

Chose the hotel based on price and location from a 3rd party site! The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet! The hotel location was even better and more conveniently located than I had expected. What made the stay most memorable was the helpful staff. Juan and Natalie (I'm pretty sure that was her name) were awesome. Both staff members made... More

This is a quiet, small motel near the Southernmost buoy. There's a little grocery store across the street, but the motel provides a delicious breakfast of coffee, fruit, juice, and muffins. Claudia and the other reception desk personnel are friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable about Key West. We felt welcomed and accepted as guests, so our stay was very relaxing... More
