“Perfect location in Key West! Beach, Duval St., Great Rooms!”
Reviewed June 17, 2009

I can not compliment this hotel enough. First, the location is perfect. The hotel is on the water with a beach and while being in Old Towne Key West but at the quiter end of Duval St. This is the best of both worlds; on the water and within walking distance to the Key West attractions. There is also a very nice pool. Second, the hotel rooms were clean and comfortable. We stayed in the older section of the hotel and it was very nice. Lastly, the staff were great and the Conceirge was very helpful. There are also, onsite bike and scooter rentals which we took advantage of.

Great trip...great hotel.

My wife and I traveled to Key West for the first time and were fortunate enough to stay at La Mer Hotel. We could not have asked for a better experience. At every turn, the staff and facilities not only met our expectations, but exceeded them. The room was larger than we expected, immaculately clean and exceptionally comfortable. The continental breakfast always included fresh fruit and tasty pastries. The pool areas were comfortable, with plenty of chairs for everyone and well-kept. More than the amenities, however, I would say I was most impressed with the staff. Everyone was not only polite and friendly, but went out of their way to ensure that we were well taken care of. I recommend this hotel without hesitation and have already told many friends about what a great experience we had.

Very attentive staff, nice rooms, great location near the quiet end of Duvall but still within walking distance of everything. Balconies with ocean views and reasonable rates. I was very pleased with out stay at Southernmost on the Beach.

We just stayed 2 night @ Southernmost on the Beach and had a nice experience. We had a room facing the ocean, which was nice to wake up to. The room was clean and seemed to be recently renovated. The hotel is located right on the beach which is extremely hard to find in Key West. There was even a wedding being celebrated at the Hotel on the beach during my stay here. It has a pool w/bar and a restaurant all within 50 feet of one another! It is located on the quiet end of Duval street which is nice, but walking distance to all the crazy bars if you are into that. The staff was pleasant and concierge extremely helpful! You get what you pay for @ Southernmost on the Beach.

First impressions of this hotel were everthing I could have imagined and more. It was a typically tropical island setting complete with colonial style architecture, beach bar, white sands with coconut palms and warm turquoise seas but above all the hotel had a sumptious but homely feel with all of the comfort and "mod" cons that todays guests need. The staff at La Mer Hotel and Dewey House did everything in their power to make sure that you had a relaxing pampered holiday, they were outstanding and attentive and dealt with any requests promptly. The deluxe continental breakfast was a fantastic start to the day especially the made to order waffles!!! and afternoon tea was especially good to revive you from the heat of the day. Overall an outstanding holiday experience which we will hopefully repeat.

Stayed Memorial Day Weekend - Southernmost on the Beach was our second choice after the Ocean key which was sold out. Stayed with our two daughters ages 12 and 15.
The room was great. New and modern. Very comfy beds. Balcony with partial ocean view was nice BUT only if our neighbors were not out on theirs. No privacy whatsoever on balcony. Bathroom was very large with a large shower.
The grounds were nicely manicured. Hammocks are a nice touch if you can get one. Pool nice and clean. Parking is free and easy.
Staff was the worst part. Understaffed at check in. Had to wait 10+ min to check in. Not overly friendly - just rushed. Night staff at front desk was downright rude. The night guy def. hates his job. I am convinced. Bartender at the pool was very slow. Too long of a wait for a drink when it was not busy.
We rented a electric car and asked staff where to park. We parked where they told us and the car was moved over night to the street and we got a ticket! Not right.
FYI: This hotel is NOT walking distance to everything. Unless of course you are in full hiking/walking gear. If you are dressed for dinner or a night out on the town you won't be able to walk. It is just too far and would be too uncomfortable in heels/dress shoes. Ocean Key or Pier House are much better choices for location to bars/restaurants/Mallory Sq.
Also: NO sunset view. You have to go all the way down Duval to catch sunset - again, NOT walking distance. Unless you like LONG, LONG walks in the heat.
So: if the price is right - stay. We paid $300+ a night. I wouldn't do that again. I'd spend a few extra bucks and head to Pier or Ocean Key.
And don't forget NOT all rooms are created equal. You have to ask for the 'new' rooms!
