“Not what it used to be”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

My husband and I have stayed at Southern Most on the Beach for several years and I have to say this year was the worst. House cleaning is not up to par for this price of hotel. We even came back to our room from breakfast and our room door was standing open. Apparently the cleaning service had been there and had not closed the door completely. That could have been a disaster as our possessions were in the room. Thank goodness nothing of value was exposed. The atmosphere is not what it used to be and the grounds are not well kept anymore. Disappointing to say the least. We are looking to return to Key West, but exploring other hotels in the area. The Southern Most is not the best use of our money. We did not get the most "bang for our buck!!"

We were looking to a nice getaway to relax yet have fun. This resort (southernmost by the beach) enabled us to have a nice quiet day by a bar/chairs/umbrellas ...just adults no kids. The next day we wanted yo mix things up and sat by the pool and pool bar. James, our mixologist was great.

The food was terrific and our room was perfect. Clean..and great view.

This is a place we would come back to and recommend to family and friends.

People, there IS a beach on Key West. And it's great. And it's right outside the back door of this fabulous B&B. Pricey but will do it again. This place is worlds apart from the Mallory Square/Duvall St scene but walkable to both.

Excellent hotel spread across 2 sister properties - efficient staff, beautiful, large rooms with balcony. Numbe of pools with tranquility/adult only very welcome for relaxation, but family pools & bars excellent too.
Informative concierge with maps & ideas of things to do
Adjacent restaurant Southernmost Beach Cafe was great for breakfast & dinner - not like your usual hotel attached restaurant, lots of locals too, right on the beach

I used to buy cars for the amount of money our room cost us for four nights (and each night was a different, but escalating, price). So yes, it's lovely. The breakfast is good (I've had better at other B&Bs); we never made it to afternoon tea. The location is excellent. Close enough yet not too close. We had a couple of meals at the bar and the food there was also good. Because of the price, I downgraded it on value.

If you are going to Key West, this is your hotel. My boyfriend and I just returned from a three week trip to this hotel. We were supposed to stay a week and we were having such a great time here, we extended our trip two more weeks. The entire hotel staff was amazing! Just to name a few... Thank you Dexter at the front desk-awesome. Because we kept extending our trip, we had to change rooms a few times. We didn't mind because every room was beautiful and the staff moved everything for us. Sully- at the pool bar- what can we say.. he ROCKS!!! Heather, the waitress at the pool was the sweetest girl ever! we'll never get better service than her! - we couldn't wait to lay at the pool and hang out with all the amazing staff! The location is great - the food and drinks are great - the rooms are great- do yourself a favor and don't waste your time staying anywhere else. We are already planning our next trip back.

Room Tip: obviously, the ocean view rooms are great. we stayed in 3 different rooms. I don't think you cou...

I'm usually traveling on a budget, so I may be easier to please than the person who normally pays four hundred a night. I originally booked the Southernmost, but was informed at check-in that we got a free upgrade to Southernmost on the beach with a ocean-view room. The room had a large balcony with the promised ocean view. The bathroom was much larger than the room type I booked. The increase in beauty and comfort soothed my budget consciousness quite a bit.

While in Key West, it felt like we should be out of the room, exploring the island on bikes, and seeing everything we can in a short time. We loved doing this, but were sad that we did not spend more time in the room or using resort pools and beaches. I recommend adding one day to just lounge around the beach and 3 pool areas. The pool in the Southernmost on the Beach has a bar that gets a lot of sun and is open to the ocean. the beach area, and the hotel restaurant. There are two pools at the Southernmost (across the street, inland a block away). One is secluded and has some shade, also with a bar. The other is the Tranquility pool, child-free, with many lounging areas and an attendant who will deliver drinks and food if you desire.

My mother shared the room and the room cost with me so that helped me feel better about the expense. We want to stay here again in off-season to enable us to spend a few more nights to enjoy the resort amenities.

If you want to rent bikes use Tropical Rent a Car, on Duvall, across the street from the Southernmost, they are 10$/day. I lost my bike lock key, and they quickly sent someone across the island to remove the old lock and give me a new one. They charged the actual amount it cost to replace the lock, fifteen dollars, and nothing for the man who came to replace it for me. Biking around is one of my favorite things about Key West. There are no hills and most of the traffic is pedestrians, scooters, electric cars and bikes!

Room Tip: Every room is a good room here. If view is important to you, tell them when you book the room. I g...
