This is a great place to stay if you are just looking for a place to sleep. We had a room with a king bed. Room was very clean, bed was comfortable and location was great. Only downside is the bathroom is TINY. There is no counter space. That being said the towels were generously sized and toiletries are provided. We would definitely stay there again.

I really enjoyed the motel being older and still well taken care of. Fantastic location and just across the street from a cuban cafe. I liked that there was a little bar on property. Our room was perfect for us. However, due to a new employee trying to learn, check in took forever, and I was overcharged. This was later corrected. The heated pool was also not working. Other than that we had no problems and will come back :D

The motel was walking distance from key attractions in Key West. One block from south beach, southernmost point in the US and Duval street. The motel is a collection of three previous motels now under the same management. There are 3 pools on the property. The Tipsy Rooster bar is located onsite and had local music Thursday thru Saturday nights. Breakfast was a large muffin, coffee or tea and assorted juices. The staff was friendly and took care of any requests. We’d recommend the Southwinds Motel for couples and families.
