The room was very nice and clean. Small quarters but had everything you could need. breakfast was simple but delicious. Best perk was bike rentals, they were available right outside your room, and they were cheap!

Clean rooms and property. Very nice people! Loved having the pool right there! Loved the bar, and being able to walk to see the sights! We got there early and they let us check in right away, so it was very convenient!

Everyone at Southwinds Motel were extremely nice and helpful. Big thanks to Sophia, Karin and Donna. They were awesome. Sophia found us a great deal on a golf cart, they printed our boarding passes and even called a taxi for us.

We had a great stay at Southwinds Motel! Our room was large with 2 double beds and very clean. We had a cute little porch with that we used in the morning to enjoy coffee and muffins supplied by Southwinds. The pool was a good size and nice escape from the heat. We loved the Tipsy Rooster, a bar located on the property. Amber and Robbie are great bartenders! We enjoyed drinks there before and after our time on Duval Street.
We would definitely recommend a stay at the Southwinds and plan to stay again.

We came to Key West for the sun and the food/drinks, not to stay in our hotel room. I was looking for an affordable room with a good location and a pool. This checked all the boxes. The reviews about the bed are true. Our king bed was more comfortable than our bed at home. All 3 pools are clean. They are smaller, but were never crowded. Mostly adults used the pools on our stay.
The staff is hard - working, friendly, and helpful. They helped us with suggestions for dining and even gave us discounts. We arrived about an hour before check in time and they let us get drinks at the attached bar and texted us when the room was ready.
The room was small, but cozy. Clean and tidy. Tile floor. Not much counter space, but not an issue for us. Bathroom was small. Fully tiled, including stand up shower. A/C worked great. WIFI worked good too. No problems. Included breakfast was simple but good. Bagels and assorted muffins from Key West Cakes, yogurt, fruit, juices, coffee. It did the job most mornings.
Location was good. One block from Duval. We rented bikes from Island Style Ride. They were cheaper than the hotel and delivered and picked them up for free. Bikes were great for getting to everything we wanted to do on the island. 8 minute ride to other end of Duval. Perfect.
Tried to visit the beach but the seaweed was an issue. Lots of washed up seaweed stunk so bad it was unbearable. Maybe next time. Decent little beach with access to chairs and towels.
Overall, very satisfied with Southwinds. Can't beat the price for this location. Will stay here again!
