Positive Reviews

Tranquil oceanfront location offered fine views

The Southernmost House attracted rave reviews for its prime location in tropical surroundings dotted with palm trees and terrific Atlantic Ocean views. For easy photo opportunities, next door was the Southernmost Point marker where continental US territory reaches its southern limit. Many visitors welcomed the location at the quieter end of Duval Street only a few blocks from downtown dining and entertainment options. Reviewers also loved the proximity of Key West's beaches.

Praise for service and breakfast

Reviewers generally liked the customer service, describing staff as friendly, attentive, helpful and full of local knowledge. Being a smaller hotel, many guests felt there was a personal touch. The continental breakfast reportedly went down well with most visitors.

Elegant rooms and beautiful swimming pool

One feature most guests admired was the infinity pool overlooking the ocean. It was described as beautiful, well-maintained and inviting. Many guests who were lounging by the pool also praised the well-made cocktails at the poolside bar. The rooms themselves won plenty of praise for their elegance, cleanliness and comfortable beds. In general, reviewers were impressed with the sympathetic restoration of this 1896 property and the way charming original features remained.

Negative Reviews

Accommodation had some drawbacks

Critics pointed out a few shortcomings encountered during their stays. These included the lack of an elevator and claims of occasional weak water pressure in some bathrooms. There were also reports of patchy free Wi-Fi in certain rooms.

Not many parking spaces

There were limited on-site parking spaces so latecomers sometimes had to scour Key West in search of free parking which was scarce.

Some ocean views were better than others

Although many reviewers loved the ocean views from their rooms, occasionally guests were disappointed by the varying quality of the panoramas offered in different rooms.
