... out and explore and have some great lunch and beer around the island. We eventually secured some really nice bikes started to head south to explore Key West big cemetery. We're allowed to ride the bikes in the cemetery and started to explore all the gravesites looking for unique to very creepy looking headstones. It was a very somber place and we soon departed and headed north to find lunch. So we headed north to go to the ...

We are staying in Anne's bedroom in the house. The Turret Room is down the hall and Robert the Doll is often seen in the southwest window by people walking down the street. We are taking a ghost tour tomorrow night and will get to see Robert up close and personal!

Fantastic sunny day no wind and water everywhere what a great day for a ride.
Found a free motorcycle park in Key West parking is at a premium. Walked through the streets poeople everywhere due to a large cruise ship being in port.
Gave up fighting all these people in the stores so we retreated to the pub for a drink and a plate ...
Woke up around 5am to discover it was still raining. Around 7am, the alarm went off and as it was still raining, if only lightly, we decided to wait it out a bit. At 7.30am we were up and ready to leave, as the rain had eased. We picked up US1 and headed to the Keys, looking for somewhere to stop for breakfast. Around 9am, we pulled into a Visitor Centre and had breakfast there, while there the rain started again. We ...

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.
