This hotel's amenities and rooms are top notch. The receptionist (Frank) was a bit rude, needs to get training on customer friendliness. Don't stay at this hotel if you want to swim. The beach is okay if you want to just stay on the beach, though the small sandy beach within hotel's premises is better than the public beach in front of the beach cafe as it is overcrowded.

This was my second trip to Key West, first time at this hotel. It was a lovely experience: clean rooms (ours had an ocean view), 2 accessible beach areas (one public, one private), and was at the nicer end of Duval street. Great service, location, and overall experience.

This was our first time to Key West and chose to stay at the Southernmost Hotel on the beach for 5 nights. I’m so glad we did from check-in to check-out Larry took great care of us during our stay. We had the corner room #653 with a partial ocean view and a lovely balcony. The room was outstanding. With high end bedding and towels. The grounds were landscaped perfectly. We loved the tanning pier where we caught our evening sunsets without crowds of Mallory Square. The weather during the week was a bit cooler, but we took advantage of the chaise lounges on the beach, had drinks at the shore bar and ate at the café for a couple of our breakfasts. If you want a five star resort and accommodations stay at any of their properties in Key West.

Short stay for the night, I arrived and check-in was very easy and quick. We stayed on the beach side and the room was nice. I got a Handicap room which made the bathroom big but the shower was difficult with seating in the shower. Bed was King size and comfortable. The Pool was close to the room and was heated, lots of activities going on like live music. Overall It was very nice and I would stay there again.

Louis's backyard dinner was fantastic ! very recommanded. 5 min from the hotel.. We visit this city by foot. No car needed. We hate the best SLIDERS on Duval street.

Hotel was perfect! Perfect location; quiet end of Duval Street but within walking distance of Duval activities. Even though the weather was cooler, we still sunned ourselves on the dock every day, and definitely enjoyed both sunrises and sunsets; both easily seen from the hotel. All amenities, staff etc. were great. Would not hesitate to return!!

This hotel is in the quieter side of Key West, there is a party loud side to Duval & a quieter gallery/ quieter side! This small detail made it for a very nice stay with our children, after having a great time in Mallory square, looking at the Boat/Xmas parade getting to our final "home away from home" was great. The hotel had everything for our Sunday morning, we still walked to enjoy our Blue Heaven breakfast, cycle back to the hotel and enjoyed the great amenities for the kids at hotel. We had mojitos, hammacks, kids played,went into the heated pool, and build their sandman on the beach. To top it off, there was a nice ice cream hour courtesy from the hotel that made my kids day! The staff was very friendly, the pool side towels, beach chairs were all nice and clean.

The only thing that was disconcerting was we asked if we could check out 2 hours later since our flight was at night. The cost was going to be something like 170 dollars. Thats ridiculous. The hotel did provide showers and that was fine but 170 dollars is robery for 2 extra hours.

I would come back to this resort again and I would recommend anyone to try it if they go down to Key West. The staff was helpful and plesent and answered all our questions. The view from our balcony over looked the water and out room was clean and quiet. There was plenty of activities to keep us busy and it's just a 2 minute walk to duval street. Also you can rent a moped right across the street I highly recommend it! Like I said we loved staying here and would most definitely stay again.

Nice hotel in great location with pleasant staff. We decided to pay the extra when we booked to upgrade to a partial ocean view room. We did have a partial ocean view, but it was also a complete view of the main parking lot just below us. Either go for the ocean view room or take the lowest price room and enjoy use of all the facilities like everyone else. If we do it again we will take the lesser priced room, anything else is not worth it.

This is a beautiful resort located on the other end of Duval Street - far enough away from the bars - only a 15 minute walk. Check in was easy...we had arrived earlier than 4pm check in time which I told the hotel would happen and asked if we can have a hospitality room to change, etc. We were offered the gym to change into shorts, etc. and they were going to hold our bags for us until our room was available. After a quick change in the gym the room was ready.....nice!

While we are impressed with your facility. We were upset when having breakfast at your resturant we got a call from the front desk telling us we have to get our car out of the parking lot. We parked where we we told when we checked in. No explanation at all he just said he was told to tell us to get out of there When checking out I questioned the front desk and was then told they wanted to space for an event that was not even taking place until the next day Good PR folks

Not at all satisfied ... Our friend had a car trouble and could not continue the trip, car had to be towed. We tried to cancel one room but were not successful.When we arrived, the receptionist was very rude - spoke to me like a dog. Not a good way to start our trip ....

Response by Southernmost on the Beach Hotel
Thank you for taking the time to write your review and share your experience with us. I am very disheartened that your reception at the time of check in was such an unpleasant experience. I would like to assure you that at no time is behavior like this tolerated from any member of our staff and this matter will be looked into immediately. I will also investigate with team members the situation of your friend’s unfortunate change of plans and speak with the individual whom you spoke with regarding the last minute cancellation. Thank you again for alerting me to these issues, these matters will be looked into directly and I apologize your stay with us was so unsatisfying.
