Followed TA reviews and they were good. Nice little hotel/ motel style place at the South end of town. Rooms were very clean, beds were comfortable and the A/C, TV and everything in the room worked well. Nice shower, coffee and small refrigerator in the room. Didn't try the breakfast so can't comment. Three pools, bike rental and within walking...

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at Southwinds Motel - and our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer! We've been to Key West several times and have stayed in many types of places, from deluxe to basic, but this will now be our go-to place to stay when we return. And we will! The property is...

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.
