This is one of those gems that you wouldn't find without Trip Advisor. Great location two blocks off Duval Street, which is the main tourist zone. Parking included. Lots of restaurants nearby. Three pools on site. Super clean, comfortable and quite rooms. Excellent helpful staff. Reasonable price. I would definitely stay here again.

We were already staying in Key West when we figured that we want to stay more, but wherever we looked it was pricy. Southwinds Motel was acceptable. Breakfast is not something you will find good there but rooms are very spacious and the place is clean. The only bad thing about our whole stay is a young cockroach we saw...

If your looking for a motel that's reasonably priced and close to Duval St. (where all the action is) then this is the motel for you. This motel is about a 1/4 mile from the famous Southern Most Point spot. I found this motel on Priceline for around $100 a night. My room was recently renovated so it had a...

I come from Norway and have neither slept in a motel or been to Key West before. My sister and I are so grateful that we chose this exact motel. The room was clean, the service very good with friendly and very helpful staff. It was close to the beach, to Duval street in a friendly neighbourhood. We did not...

The bed was beyond comfortable, the linens and pillows were excellent. Although the property is located on a busy intersection, the large room was quiet. There are several pools and sitting areas on the property which provide a resort feel to this small motel.

the hotel is well located between the southernmost point in the US and the start of Duval street. Free parking and Wifi, good sleep quality. The only negative is that the bathroom are a little bit small but I think it's part of the price. Possibility to rent bikes at the front desk. No breakfast but there are a couple...
