      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!

      Love SCH


      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.

      Special place


      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.

      Very recommendable!

      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!

      Great location


      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.

      Along the Way: It's a long way from Sarasota to Key West – it took us over 7 hours. Our reserved hotel room was available ONLY if we arrived prior to 4PM so we didn't waste too much time sightseeing along the way. However, having travelled along the Interstate Hwy through the northern end of the everglades, …

      With a tummy full of crab right at the midday heat I was dripping by the time I walked back to my hotel. I looked at our swimming pool but did not like what I ...

      ... to box the place out. It's an improvement. We lock all 3 door locks & get ready for bed. Sam doesn't want to sleep in the bed closest to the door & I end up sleeping on the side closest to the door so I can protect him from intruders. Sounds like we are about to be involved in a crime scene outside our room most of the night. I slept like a baby, Sam not so much. I'm officially banned from choosing our ...

      And, we're back in the US! We tie up to the dock in Key West at noon (right on time) and it's excursion time! We had a jetboat ride booked, but we switched it for a tour of the island - good choice, I think. There is also a Royal Caribbean boat in port - it looks like it holds about 2000 people (about 4 times our passenger capacity), so Key West is going to be full of cruisers today. Of course, before we can do any excursion, ...

We we are just a block off Duval Street, the party capital, as it appears. After check in we walked down Duval to the east and found and Irish Pub with a good menu and had a bite to eat while ...
