4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Very nice place and was great for what I needed for one night. It was very clean and put together. Parking was easy since it has a parking lot since I cannot parallel park very well. Staff at front desk very friendly and helpful. Would definitely come back again

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This motel is in a good location near SouthernMost point. It was clean and I had a sense of a touch of nostalgia. The coziness of the site with its outside entrances made me feel a little like I was back in 60's (or 50's), though the accommodations were up to date. In a tourist area like Key West, it... More

Went in to see if there were any rooms and the receptionist was lovely , genuinely helpful... More

The desk clerks are very friendly and helpful. They genuinely care about you. The hotel recently expanded after acquiring another hotel. We stayed in two different rooms. Room #1 is beautiful and I recommend it! Our 2nd room was #79 and it was very nice as well. But room # 1 is cute and has a patio, so its my... More

They have done just about as good as possible remodeling old concrete block motel. Rooms are small, but clean and comfortable. Bath updated as much as space will allow. Bed very comfortable. Grounds are well kept. Staff very friendly and helpful (We arrived early, stored our luggage until our room was ready the first day). Great location for access to... More

This is a 'cheap' motel with small but impeccably clean rooms. My husband and I walked all over town from there--it's a great location. Expect small rooms with white tile floors (very beachy) and a tiny but adequate bathroom. The front desk folks were always very helpful with hints and directions. Great find!

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Southwinds Motel. We loved our room. It was very comfortable, with everything you'd need. The location was perfect! We were a couple blocks from all the restaurants, shops and bars on Duval St. The Southernmost point was around the corner as well as South beach. We had a great time in Key... More

People who work at the reception are all excellent workers. They were friendly and very helpful. Ms. Elizabeth helped us a lot about Key West (where to go to swim, to eat, etc,...). Our room was very comfortable. We didn't any problems. The hotel is close by to everywhere.
