The bed needed upgraded, it was awful. The other guests were smokers and made going to our room uncomfortable as they frequented common areas and were smoking constantly. I didn’t like the amount of smoking in the area

Southwinds Motel is one of the best places to stay in Key West. It's near to everything. The motel is very clean and well maintained. The motel staff are extremely kind and helpful from day one. We stayed 9 nights here and will continue to book this motel when we return in the future. We had a few maintenance requests (clogged shower) which was handled within minutes. The property has 3 pools, and serves breakfast each morning. One of the perks is this hotel is near a Duval Loop stop which is a free bus that takes you to Duval St and many happening places in Key West. If you're new to Key West and are looking for a decent place close to all the action in Key West, THIS is the place to need to stay. 5 stars !!!
