          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.

          ... or so was really hard going, with traffic lights every quarter of a mile or so, and heavy stop-start traffic, so we spent a lot of time standing still. The heat was intense - so much so that, when we finally extracted ourselves from the urban sprawl and stopped for a cold drink at just after 2 pm, the sweat was literally dripping out of the arms of my jacket onto the floor when I hung it over the back of a chair.

However, we stopped at a small Irish Pub and had a drink...not so much for the drink, but we both had to "see a man about a horse." You know what I mean. Worked out well. Nice lady named Sharka waited on us. An iced tea (because the Diet Coke was flat) and a Yuengling, and visits to the restrooms and we were on our ...

At about 12.30, we were back in the crew bar and that's where we stayed for a LONG time. I think Emma escorted me back to my cabin at somewhere past 4.00am. Fair while since I have had such a session. Drinking beers and a shot of some sort of rocket fuel. Em brought along Tim ...

          Grand Cayman (MWCR) to Key West (KEYW)

          A travel blog entry by harry4123 on Feb 18, 2014

          The flight from Grand Cayman to Key West is the shortest on the trip, a little over 300 nm. I filed for the most direct route via Skyplan since the Cuba overflight permit was needed. The most direct route is:


          This was rejected a couple of times when Skyplan tried to file it so they tried a third time and successfully got:

Islamorada is in the Florida Keys, a very fine string of "keys" put together. Really it's a beachy, touristy and generally relaxing place to be nearing to the end of your stay in America. There really isn't too much to tell except for the fact that being pale and ...
