Southernmost Beach Resort
Ranked #14 of 51 Hotels in Key West
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Celebration our 5th anniversary in key west, we found this great hotel away from all drunk crazies. I'm writing this review at 7am sitting in the courtyard watching the water... Very quiet. The room was clean and perfect, a block from the southernmost point and at the end of Duval... Perfect. Lots of amenities if you want them. Last night there was a solo guitar player playing soft music and interacting with his ten listeners.... So very nice. Expensive but worth it for the right occasion or if you want to get away from the debacherie for a while.

We stayed in this hotel a bit out of season (May). It was a decent price, the service was overall perfect and nothing to complain about. The rooms are clean, new, and the location of the hotel is almost unbeatable: directly at the sea plus also so central that you can reach the shopping / bar-street within just a few steps. Free WiFi was included, too. We will definitely come back if we are in this area.

We come to Key West frequently over many years and have stayed at several of the hotels. This was our first time here and it was an excellent choice! The rooms were nice- roomy and clean. The property is overall very clean and well maintained. The most memorable times however, were spent in the Sandbar! "Mark" was wonderful! He obviously LOVES Key West and LOVES his job! In a town that relies on tourists, Mark should be Honorary Mayor or Goodwill Ambassador! We will return!

Ok so we booked this place as we were headed to the keys. Booked it off the reviews from Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint. The rooms were very clean and updated. The grounds were well maintained. The biggest plus to this place is the beach and Southernmost Cafe being next door. All in all we enjoyed our stay here. Is it pricey? Yes it is but what higher end resort in Key West isn't. We had stayed at Ocean Key Resort the last 3 years and this place is much nicer.
I can't really comment on the staff as we spent most of our time at the beach or bar.
I would have rated this place 5 stars although we wanted to stay an extra night,a Sunday night. When we talked to the front desk they were gonna charge us $150 more than what we paid for Friday and Saturday night. We declined rather quickly,so then he drops the price to a little lower. We still declined. About 30 mins later they call and offered it to us at another price. Still decline. We looked on trip advisor and could have gotten the room for $100 less than the lowest price they finally offered us. To me that's rather shady.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property. We are so pleased you found your room pleasing, our grounds lovely and our award winning Southernmost Beach Café a great place to dine. It has one of the best views and menus on the island! I regret at you had any misgivings while interacting with our front desk agent. As a rule, any adjustment to current rates requires the approval of the Director of Revenue and it is very likely the agent was requesting approval to reduce the rate they offered in an attempt to provide you with the best possible price. I would like to apologize if you felt these actions were anything other than an honest attempt to assist you and left you feeling anything other than appreciated after your pleasant stay. We hope you will give us another opportunity to make a future stay with us exceptional. Thank you again for taking the time to write your review.

We booked the adjacent Hotel Devey House through Travelocity well ahead on Feb 8/14 at a daily rate of 597 USD.
The booking was for a luxury double room, with porch and - explicitly - 2 queen beds.
On arrival (5/7/14), the room was unavailable as given to other guests prior to our arrival.
The receptionist couldn't care less.
We asked for the General Manager which was refused. Instead the Property Manager (?) showed up and offered us not to check in and forego our booking at no refund. We would have to deal with expedia regarding a refund, which is unlikely to happen as he said. As an alternative he offered in exchange for the initially booked luxury room at 597 USD a standard room with a poor view located in the main building, which listed at 290 USD.
Upon questioning this standard room's rate, the Manager quickly checked the monitor and told us that this room is 597 USD ("surprisingly" exactly the rate of the luxury room we paid); re-questioning this rate the manager argued that rates change every day. This was a blunt lie and taking advantage of the situation of customers from overseas.
To appear customer friendly, the manager offered us "generously" free breakfast, which was another foulness as the room rate of 597 USD included breakfast as indicated on our original reservation. At check-out we got assured the breakfast will not be charged.
Nevertheless, now back home I found the breakfast was manually charged to our credit Card !
Finally, the Manager referred us repeatedly to Expedia, but we booked thru Travelocity...

In summary, the Manager and receptionist lied to us (room rate, reservation agency), was deliberately giving wrong information ("generously" offering already paid breakfast as a treat), dishonest by overcharging us and treacherous by charging breakfast manually to our credit Card despite offering it to us as complementary. This calls for legal action....

Room Tip: Make sure you don't prepay this hotel. Reception staff does not care whether your room preferenc...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our Bed & Breakfast. I would like to apologize for any misunderstanding of confusion regarding your most recent stay with us. I was compelled to visit our site on Travelocity based on your comments and I would like to clarify that the description of our “Luxury Room, Garden View does state the room will have either 1 King bed, One Queen bed or 2 beds. We always try to honor our guests’ requests for specific rooms or locations but unfortunately sometimes we simply are not able to.
We do operate on a rate yield system and this simply means that the rates fluctuate on a daily basis due to supply and demand. When guests make their reservation with a 3rd party booking site unfortunately we do not know the rates that site has quoted our guests, we are not privileged to that information; it is between our guest and the party they made their reservation with. Our manager and front desk agents were trying resolve to the best of their ability any issues with your reservation and it is regrettable that the solution did not meet your expectations.
I would like to thank you for bringing to my attention the mistake that was made when breakfast was charged to your room. I will investigate this more thoroughly and make certain these charges are reversed if they haven’t been already.
Thank you again for taking the time to write your review and if I can be of further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
