We are traveling in a group from California. We booked the spot encouraged by the raving reviews of TripAdvisor's. We booked 3 rooms -- 2 with 2 beds and 1 room with 1 bed. The configuration is such that 2 rooms would accommodate 4 people each and one room will have 2 people. We drive here on New Year's Day...

Dear Shuchi M, I took the opportunity to look at all the details of your reservations based on your review of our motel. I see that you booked your three room reservations directly with our motel and the confirmations that were sent to you had only one room with two beds and two rooms with one bed. When you arrived...

A really good Motel with very good and comfortable beds and big rooms, a small kitchen with a coffeemaker and fridge, friendly staff and free parking. It is a 10 minute Walk to Duvalstreet but very quiet.

Stayed there Christmas weekend. Very comfortable and clean. Donna at the front desk was so nice and very helpful. Highly recommend. The room was decent sized and near one of their 3 pools (small pools). Walking distance to beach and heart of Duvall

So...Key West between xmas and new years, everything is super expensive and we only needed one night and chose the cheapest. Hadn't stayed in a "motel" in like 25 years since I was a kid and had all sorts of negative connotations, but it was blown out of the water. The room was like an apartment, it had a kitchen...

This is a quaint little motel that is close to Duval Street. The staff at the desk were friendly and helpful. You can rent bikes from the motel, but you can walk pretty much anywhere you need to go. Parking is tight (but it is everywhere). Love the free washer and dryer on property, although we didn't use it. Breakfast...

We just spent two nights at Southwinds and it is great value for money in a very pricey Key West. This hotel is obviously an old school drive up motel that has been totally refurbished. The rooms are minimalist, spotlessly clean and white. Very quiet and good wifi. The parking lot has a neighborly feel, with people having beers in...

We chose the Southwinds based on viewing their website and price/location. Booked through a third party which was no problem at all. Next time we will book directly, as the desk staff are very helpful and cooperative with up to the minute availability info. Although check in begins at 4 pm and we arrived around 11 am we had lunch...

This motel offered a nice stay for us in Key West. It is really good location, friendly staff, clean and tidy. Private porch, parking next door, refrigerator, kitchen table, clean bathroom, comfortable bed, very helpful and friendly staff. The only downside was the loud AC so bring earplugs and the promised breakfast was not so convincing.

Ok, so this is not a luxury resort kind of place. You're not going to get a giant TV in your room and a marble-laiden bathroom, but if you didn't come to Florida to sit inside your hotel room and watch TV - this place is PERFECT! What you do get is a clean basic room, pretty much right on...

We enjoyed our stay at Southwinds. Nice and close to Duval and Southernmost area. Only recommendation would be a dresser for clothes. Breakfast was sufficient. Nice to have 3 pools on grounds. We would stay here again.
