Southernmost on the Beach VideoThe Southernmost on the Beach is a great place to just get away from it all. Key west is a small place and they are on the tip, where it's quiet and like they carved out a little piece of the island. If you want to get into some partying and action just walk down Duval. The further you go the more nuts it gets. Camille’s and Abodanzas are two great restaurants within the immediate vicinity. This side is slower but the shopping is much better and there are great privately owned art galleries all around. We will surely stay at the Southernmost when we return to Key West, which we hope is sooner than later. When we do, we'll try and get one of the rooms on the second floor towards the southern end of the building. They have a better ocean view, however not of the beach. We'd definitely be happy no matter where we were staying in this hotel.
Everyone keeps writing about how the Southernmost on The Beach is on the quiet end and how easy it is to walk everywhere. Well the easiest way to get around Key West is to rent bikes or scooters. Bikes and scooters are available for rental right on the hotel property. Also there's plenty of cabs that charge fir rates to take you anywhere on the island. Key West is small so a high cab bill is a hard thing to accomplish. Old town has everything worth visiting while on vacation and the hotel is on the southernmost end of it.
I came back here to write about our recent stay at The Southernmost on the Beach Hotel in Key West. We had stayed there before and found your site looking for some videos. This time our stay was even better than the last. The staff is welcoming and attentive from the moment you walk in the door. We had an ocean view room on our last vacation. This time we reserved a ground level king room. The difference in quality was null and the view was better from the second floor but we decided to save some money staying on the first floor. I've told a few friends about our trip, and that the king bed in our hotel room was more comfortable than my bed at home.
We just returned home from this vacation and we're already planning our next trip back to stay here. My husband and I have fallen in love with Key West. This time we went down for New Years on the recommendation of a friend and will probably go again at that time next time. The conch drops on top of Sloppy Joes bar. It's a fun time to visit. This hotel is ideal as long as you're prepared to walk to the crowded area of downtown. We liked being away from the crowd and thought a little stroll helps burn calories from drinking and food you find yourself overindulging on. The way I see it, even if you stay at the other end, you'll likely walk down to the other end to get away from the crowds. This was one of our many trips down to old Key West and we look forward to staying at the southernmost. With the beach, hospitality, and quality of the rooms for the price, they have my business forever.
We just returned home from a delightful week long vacation in Key West. We chose the Southernmost on the Beach in Key West after a friend told us it was the best hotel in Key West. He was right, and I wanted to share my experience with others. First, the hotel has been updated wonderfully. Every room is new and expertly maintained by the cleaning staff. We made a good mess of our room and they did a job of making it new again. I read previously that they used some kind of fragrance in the rooms when they clean them and it smells so good when you open the door. It hits you and it's a pleasant, clean scent. It's not just a can of Lysol sprayed into the air. I think they put it in the a/c somehow because when we turned up the fan on the a/c it filled the room again with this bouquet of flowers scent. Next best part has to be the beds. They're of coarse new firm beds that made us look forward to going back to the room to rest. We spent little time sleeping, but slept so well we were refreshed every morning. Only problem was my husband wanted a new bed when we got home. Next, the location is at the southernmost end of Key West. This is the slower paced and quieter end of Duval St. Surrounding the property is houses quaint souvenir shops and unique art galleries with works from local artists and famous painters alike. If you desire a skyscraper ultra modern corporate accommodation, then this is not the hotel for you. But if you like a laid back atmosphere and a hotel with a dedicated staff who is attentive to your needs, unlike most any hotel in the world, I would definitely recommend the Southernmost. I must say that I don't understand one of the previous reviews that said it makes a big difference on where you stay in the hotel in reference to one end or the other. This hotel basically faces the beach and the goes out over the water. If you stay in the end closes to the beach, you'll see more beach. If you stay on the other side you'll still see the beach and the ocean will be right in front of you. I think the view from any room would be great. The second floor rooms can see further, so I can understand an argument for staying up there. The grounds are filled with lovely plants in a plantation style setting. The lobby is immaculate, as the rest of the property, and we the staff was very helpful and always had a smile on their faces. They were extremely hospitable.
My husband and I visited Key West in May on our Honeymoon. The Southernmost on the Beach is a great place for honeymooning couples or anyone wanting a romantic weekend getaway. I was hesitant after not seeing any real negative reviews. It seemed too good to be true, but they were deserving of the accolades. Our room was spacious, with modern comforts and for the price the view was outstanding. Comfort is a priority and it shows. From a balcony with cozy chairs to the big pillows on the bed. Sitting on the balcony at any time was just like being in a different world. When you come to a destination like this a room with an ocean view is must. We spent a lot of time just sitting out there taking it all in. All of the rooms are oceanview, but if you can get a balcony room, I can tell you it's worth the money. I won't mention any names, but if you check around a little you'll see the other hotels in the area are charging an absolute arm and leg for similar rooms. If you want ocean view at the best rate on the island look no further than the Southernmost. Mallory Square is great for the sunset each evening. It was bit of a long walk from the hotel the evening we found ourselves relaxing on the beach and decided we wanted to walk down there. It takes about 15 minutes to walk directly down there. Most day we made our way down and stopped many times on the way at the bars and shops. They rent bikes and scooters at the hotel and after a couple of days we decided to skip the walking and got a couple of bikes. This was great. The island was ours now. The hotel staff was helpful and eager to please. The beach club restaurant on the beach in front of the hotel is one of the best priced restaurants on the water anywhere in the world. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We ate many meals here and they will bring your food right to you if you want to dine on the beach, which was definitely a different experience. Fun Fun Fun times. The hotel, the island and the water were all great. All without leaving the country.
