The hotel room was clean, updated, great pillows, and compact. The only thing...

Southwinds was amazing! We're staying in Key Largo and wanted a quick trip to Key West. Southwinds let us check in early and when we checked out told us we could keep our car there for a when after. Very clean and super friendly staff. Also a perfect location!!!

A great place to spend a few nights. The room was clean and in a gray location. It was close enough to all of the festivities of Duval Street but still far enough that it stayed pretty quiet. The staff were super friendly and helpful. All of this for one of the lowest rates available. I will definitely stay here...

We loved Southwinds! The location is perfect, the staff was very nice, our room very clean, roomy, and had everything we needed for our little get away weekend! I highly recommend staying here! Parking is included which is great in the Key West! They also have bikes you can rent, so you never really have to move your car once...

This was above our expectations, the staff was so pleasant and went above and beyond to fill us in on the local things to do and see. The room was spotless, bed was very comfortable. Our room was #7 right on the side of the pool. Walking distance to Duval St. We would highly recommend staying with them and when...

We stayed here for a week and couldn't have asked for a better place. It had everything we needed. The prices were very reasonable,rooms were very clean. It was far enough away from all the hustle and bustle but also close enough if you wanted to be in the middle of everything. The staff especially Claudia made us feel right...

The room had anything and everything you need. Also they have three pools on the property. Free coffee and muffins in the morning is a real treat. It is a short walk to all the shops in the popular side of town or rent one of their bikes.

For the price we paid, I was a little comprehensive about the motel but as soon as I stepped foot on the property and saw how well it was maintained and how hard working the employees were, I knew we had made the correct decision to stay there. Claudia was great at check-in. Giving us lots of advice about rentals...
