“Absolutely magnificent!!”
Reviewed June 24, 2009

Southernmost on the Beach should be rated the #1 hotel in Key West. I'm not sure the pics on the website do it justice! The rooms were great. We stayed in one of the older rooms with a balcony and ocean view. It looked just like a new room. Service was impeccable, pool was awesome, fitness center had plenty of machines, and the location was great. If we return to Key West I would stay here again.

We selected this hotel never having been to Key West and just going off other's reviews...it was AMAZING! This hotel's website does not do it justice! It's an amazing property..right on water..right next to South Beach (name of beach in Key West)...hammocks, lounge chairs, umbrellas everywhere...easy access into ocean right off private pier. The pool area was perfect, great drinks at the pool bar. We got the King Bed with Garden view and it was basically a building 100 feet from water. Once again, it was perfect spot to stay in Key West!!

My fiancee and I stayed at the Southernmost on the Beach for a much-needed escape from a miserable northeastern winter/spring. Chose SMOTB for its location--which is perfect for all Key West activities. All rooms have ocean views, but splurge for the oceanfront rooms--you will not be disappointed. Something to be said for relaxing on your private balcony overlooking water that seems painted from a palette of heavenly blues and greens. Rooms themselves are magnificent, nicely appointed and comfortable. Staff could not be friendlier or more helpful with any/every request. Great front desk staff, concierge, restaurant personnel, cleaning crew, pool attendants (say hi to Cella--she's the best!). You can relax at the pool, on the beach right outside your door or on the very cool tanning pier, from which you can take a dip in the aforementioned water by simply walking down some stairs. You're a two-minute walk from the Southernmost Point in the U.S., and an easy stroll to Duval St., with its myriad bars and restaurants and unmatched people-watching opportunities. In fact, you can pretty much walk anywhere in Old Town Key West from here, including to Mallory Square for the famous sunset celebrations. Hadn't been to Key West in some 20 years, but after staying at SMOTB, can't wait to get back. No place else we'd ever stay. The location and amenenities makes this hotel ideal, but its people and their level of service really make it something special. Just a great trip. Truly a slice of heaven in paradise.

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon in Key West, where we spent 5 nights at the Southernmost on the Beach. Not only was it one of the most affordable resorts on the island for what you get, it was downright beautiful. Our room was immaculate, and looked EXACTLY what the pictures look like of the new rooms. The pool and green area were a great place to relax, and the dock even has steps down into the ocean where people snorkeled in about 4 feet of water. Though we didn't get to eat at the restaurant right there at the beach, we did enjoy several drinks at the bar, and did get to rent a surf board where we paddled out into the water for a good hour of relaxation.

The location is about a mile to a mile and a half from Mallory Square, but it was nice to come back to the quiet end of the street at the end of the night. The concierge was ready to give us tips and even book our sunset cruise for us which was a great help since neither one of us had vacationed there before.

I could go on and on about how much we enjoyed our vacation, but to sum it up, we will go to SMOTB every time we go back to Key West!

I just got back from a week at the Southernmost on the Beach and cannot say enough about the hotel. We were greeted by wonderful hotel staff from the front desk (Hector) to the pool (Gizella). We stayed in the newer King oceanview rooms and have never felt so comfortable in a hotel room. They were clean, large, and I wish I had that shower and bed here at home. The pool was great and the Southernmost on the Beach Cafe was excellent. We ate there alot and everything was delicious. Kathy and Brian were great servers and we had alot of fun with them. Our flight out was cancelled and we were given a room across the street and the Southernmost Hotel and did not like that nearly as well. The staff was just as wonderful, but the hotel needs to be updated. I will definately stay at the Southernmost on the Beach again.

We chose this hotel after extensive comparisons. Great previous reviews, free breakfast,on the beach! and free parking won us over. We were not disappointed. We stayed in room 416. Very nice! King bed,pvt patio which is enclosed with lattice type fencing. Nice for outdoor "recreational activities". I would go for any room on the second floor for privacy .They cost a bit more but worth it. Rm 420 is the furthest from the top of the stairs and was told it is the same. Forget the first floor (rooms 414 ,415) unless you don't mind breakfast and staff traffic.Good breakfast .Tasty Belgium waffles & quiche. Beautiful tropical grounds. Bldg staff great. Bar staff needs people skills. Beach is nice.

This is a great group of hotels! The veiw from our ocean front room was spectacular. The room it self was very nicely appointed, clean and comfortable. Unussualy large amount of storage space ,which was very nice since we were traveling with two small children and all the stuff that goes with them.
The hotel complex had three pooles between the two hotels, all of which were very well maintained. My only complaint in this area was the music. Im not a fan of modrn music and would realy have liked it if the pool next to the TIKI bar had played more "islandy" feelling music. That said the smaller pool (still very nice) had no music at all so you could always go there for a quite swim.
The staff at The Southern most was excelant! Very freindly and always ready to help!
Great range of room prices depending on veiws. All with in a few steps of beach or pools! Southern most on the beach is a little more expensive than the reg. southern most, because its on the beach. But the original Southern most is just across the street and im sure a good bet
Also the hotels are right around the corned from the reasurants, shops and bars.
