Historical Traveler Reviews Southern Cross Hotel Key West
Key West is Awsome, Southern Cross Hotel is the same
We stayed in the Third floor Duval street suite. It was totally awsome. This place is really worth every penny. The staff was so helpful. offering places to eat breakfast, lunch dinner and places to park. I don't know how you could do better!
My husband and I just did the southern most ride on our motorcycle to Key West on Dec. 29. We stayed at Southern Cross Hotel. We found this hotel online--The room is cleaned and it is located in the heart of Duval street--you cannot ask for more. Renner & Daniel are fantastic...we will stay there again if we go down to Key West in the future. You won't regret to stay here!!
Great Hotel, Great Location, Great Staff
Just got back from the Keys. Had a wonderful time. The Southern Cross was a very nice, clean, inexpensive place to stay. Plan on going down next year around the same time but a little longer. Will stay here again and recommend it to everyone.
My wife and I stayed for a couple of nights in Sept 04 and it was marvellous,basic accommodation and a bit small in the wc and shower but hey it was extremely clean and very centrally located for all the night life, the staff where excellent we would would definately stay again.Key west is one of the best places I have been fortunate to visit around the world
Wish I Coulda Stayed Longer
My husband, best friend and I stayed at the Southern Cross Hotel at the end of August, 2004. The rooms were clean and comfortable. A little on the small side, but with so much to do in Key West, who wants to stay in your room! The location is perfect - right on Duvalle Street, where everything is happening, a few blocks from the pier, and the southernmost point. The hotel staff was much more than helpful, friendly and polite. They made us feel right at home.
It's easy to find, and within walking distance to all of the fun. It's a beautiful, old historical hotel. No phones, no televisions and no alarm clocks! It's not luxurious, but it's charming, inexpensive, comfortable and clean. I'd go again.
A perfect inexpensive hotel
A perfect location in Duval Street!
Close to bars and shops but quiet and clean rooms.
An Amazing Hotel!
I had the most amazing time staying at the Southern Cross Hotel during my freshmen spring break! If you are a spring breaker, this is defintely the place to go. You have access to a huge balcony looking over Duval Street where all the major bars are: Hog's Breath, Fat Tuesday, and Sloppy Joes. The rooms were nice and so private that when you did pass out, nobody bothered you, especially the housekeeping. I plan on returning for my final senior year, this spring break, with all of my girlfriends. See you soon Southern Cross Hotel!
Home away from home
We make it a point to stay at the Southern Cross everytime we go to Key West. Renner, the manager makes you feel like a guest in his own home. There is no TV, or phone, but in our mind that 's what a vacation is all about. The location is perfect, right in the middle of everything yet cozy and quiet when you need to relax. Highly recommend going to see for yourself! Tell Renner we said hi!
My husband and I jetted down to Key West for a quickie get-a-way weekend the middle of August and stayed at Southern Cross. We were extremely pleased with the cleanliness of the rooms and more impressed with the location, which was convenient to all points of interest. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Great Hotel in Walking Distance to the Bars
The first time I stayed at this hotel two years ago it was on accident.
I decided to stay an extra night in Key West and a local told me to give it a try. Now I always stay there. The hotel is a historic building but all of the rooms are remodeled and air-conditioned. I have never stayed in a room with a T.V. and I once had a room where the bath area was not separated from the sleeping area with a door, which makes it difficult for the bashful to shower, etc. The management has always been personable and the prices are always reasonable.

... of the fuel delay and re-route, but not a problem for them. It literally took less than 15 minutes from engine shutdown to them stamping my passport and sending me on my way. The only thing I was bringing back were a few bottles of wine from Chile. A cursory look around inside the plane, a few questions, and that was it - very reasonable. Incidentally, there is a document which has the phone numbers and hours for US ...
Anyhow, we headed North and kissed the turquoise water goodbye. I had seen a sign for Mrs. Mac's famous key lime pie on our way through Key Largo, and we decided a stop was necessary to ease my depression. Not only did we love the key lime pie, we decided we had to partake in one more hogfish sandwich. This one was crusted with potato chips - a match made in heaven. With our stomachs fully satisfied, we left the Keys behind and headed back to the mainland...
... and then lunch and they supply you with snorkel gear and a guided tour of the fort. Jim and I decide to do our own tour and head off into the fort to explore. We leave the group behind and make our way up to the top of the wall.. WOW!! The view is amazing and it is a big place!!
We cover all of the fort and take a ton of pictures! ... lunch is being served on the boat between 11 and 1 so we make our way back to the boat to miss the ...
Yesterday we drove to key west on the Florida keys but I slept most of the way here so didnt see all the pretty islands and the ocean, but it was a big surprise to wake up and see such lovely views! We stopped by the side of the highway to have lunch in what I'd call a lay by except it contained a mini beach so we ate our sandwich wraps with our feet in the lovely sea! We also stopped at a little rest stop ...
... br> He also told us the story of how the oversea highway got it's start. Rockefeller and Flagler, after they started Standard Oil, were looking for a way to expand their shipping business. They financed the oversea railway, complete with a luxury hotel on each key so their friends would have nice place to stay when they came down on vacation. Today's oversea highway is built on the base of the original railroad.
Eventually, we got back to Duval ...
