We love Key West but some of the hotels can get a bit pricey, so we decided to try out the Southwinds. Being a Motel our expectations were not high, but how wrong we we.
This is a great place to stay. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable it's in an ideal situation just off Duval St and a short walk to some great bars and restaurants.
An added benefit is the free parking. We had a hire car having driven down from Miami and parking in Key West can be a bit of a problem, and having somewhere to leave the car was an added bonus.
We are planning on visiting Key West again soon and will definitely be staying at the Southwinds.

We went down to Key West this past weekend for my 30th birthday celebration. We stayed here upon recommendation from the southernmost hotel, due to vacancy. We were not disappointed! Although it is not a fancy motel, it is cozy, clean, and the staff was very friendly! There is free continental breakfast every morning and the women who run the office always had a smile on their faces! They were very welcoming and informative of our questions while we were eating and had a good sense of humor. The breakfast area was kept clean and stocked. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and will definitely be returning for future visits!

Southwinds Motel never disappoints. Had another excellent 1-week stay. Addition of the Tipsy Rooster is another plus. Property is well maintained and clean. We have stayed here for the last 6 years. Good continental breakfast. Lobby even has umbrellas you can borrow if there's a chance of rain. Staff is very friendly and professional. We will be back in Nov 2018 again.

We traveled with three other couples to this motel. We were looking for a clean not too expensive motel and
Southwinds motel checked all the boxes. We were in the area called the thirties and it is built around a small pool.
The rooms were very clean .They are older looks like built around the 50’s but had everything we needed. Small refrigerator microwave, coffee maker and a TV, which we . I highly recommend the
southwinds Motel. We will be going back!never turned on. The staff is friendly and accommodating.
The hot water was good and hot and plenty of it.
If you do not need more amenities that this , no gym or spa but are looking for a comfortable place to stay I highly recommend the Southwinds. We will be going back!

We spent five nights at this smashing little motel.
Easy check in with friendly staff,bar on site if even a little expensive.
Nice pool and plenty of parking space.
Breakfast was simple but enough to start your day.
Excellent WiFi which was essential to us.
Few mins walk from Southernmost point and quieter end of Duval.
Room had all you needed even if small but microwave fridge and an extremely comfortable bed.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
