Shara and Doris (Front Desk Staff) are great ambassadors for Southwinds Motel. Rooms are clean, updated and the location is where I wanted to be. Off street parking. Light breakfast was appreciated. Microwave and fridge provided.

An older motel with up-to-date amenities! We were pleased with the hospitality and helpfulness of all the employees. The cleanliness of the rooms, common areas, pools impressed us. Close to the beach and one block from the main drag of Duval Street. Fresh fruit available 24/7 and continental breakfast provided which we were not aware of....an extra bonus!. Our check-in...

Small, comfortable, well appointed room. Simple but more than adequate breakfast. Lovely helpful staff. Close to all attractions but far enough away from madness of Duval Street! Would definitely recommend.

We came down for the Keys 100 race and stayed only 1 night. Check in was fast and easy and when we parked a staff member was in the parking lot and asked if we needed any assistance. The room was extremely clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff were very warm and friendly. Would definitely stay again!

After reading that everything in Key West was super expensive [what is not exactly a lie], we weren't sure about this motel, because the price was affordable considering the city. But it was a great surprise: room is spacious, with a good kitchen, great shower, clean, everything functioning well. They have a busy parking lot, staff is attentive and the...

Very nice clean motel. We were very happy with our large room with 2 beds. Everything was very clean. The hotel is in a great location to the main street (Duvall) and also to the most southern point. The hotel also provided bikes and we biked both days.

I found the room to be exactly as advertised. Clean and well maintained. I picked Southwinds because of it's location at the "quiet" end of Duval Street area. The front desk was very helpful. I had no issues with any part of my stay at the Motel and will make this my 1st choice on return visits. You can spend...

We stayed here 1 week during the month of May. A nice clean room, and very pleasant housekeeping staff. The Motel is close enough to walk to many attractions (a great thing as parking stinks & is expensive!!). There is a free washer & dryer for guests use on premise, 2 pools, and they will rent bicycles if you are...

It was a girl's trip. One of the ladies had been to Key West before but others had not. All of the staff was wonderful but we dealt with Natalie the most. She was most helpful in getting taxis, places to go, directions, everything. We rented a car one day to drive down the Keys and she was very knowledgeable...
