We enjoyed the Southwinds Motel. The room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The grounds were manicured beautifully. The staff was friendly! The location was a bit far from the main downtown area... Yet a nice walk there.

Had a get-away weekend with two other 60+ couples. Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable and bottled water was unexpected bonus. Muffins and coffee in the mornings were enough to get through to brunch. Bit of a walk to the busy area of Duval, but doable. Really appreciated the free parking. The three pools were all inviting and the office...

This motel has clean rooms at a reasonable price (during off season). The rooms are a bit small for the king size, but they are manageable. The staff is AMAZING! We booked through a third party and changed the dates, but the motel didn't get the information. While they were working with us, the receptionist grabbed me a cold water...

We arrived early and they were able to get us our room before the 3:00 check in. We found the room to be clean and well kept. Housekeeping and the grounds crew were very friendly and took care of any questions or needs we had.
