You are greeted by the bartender of the world’s smallest bar (immediately next door) which to me was odd and very uncomfortable. The lady during the day was super sweat and very kind. The gentleman in the evening was rude and mean. The location is fabulous for walking to everything. It is loud at night but it’s to be expected...

We have stayed here many times (The Old Customs House) because it allowed pets, and our friends have a dog who goes to Key West with us all. The owner, however, also has a cat who roams the premises freely and loves to sleep with the clientele, something I now find necessary when I look for a hotel. The place...

Watch out for added charges. We were hit with a $25 "room user fee" for no apparent reason. The room was very shabby and the bed was uncomfortable. If you have a car be prepared for a long search for a parking unless you arrive very early or late. This is no fault of the hotel as they do not...

More bang for the buck! The rooms are actually larger than expected with small kitchenettes. The patio is host to an outdoor bar called "Juan Loves Lucy" and a parrot. Private, locked and safe. When the bar closes, they lock the gate in which you have a key to keep the drunks out. Don't worry about the noise because your...

Booked this last minute and could not have been more pleased. Josh was extremely welcoming to this establishment and helped us get squared away immediately. I was traveling with a group of friends 23-25 so we got one of the suites. The suite was clean and the AC worked perfectly. When I am going to Key West, I am looking...

Great little place right in the heart of it all, walk out in to the very keys style court yard and right out to duval street from there. Very clean and well kept rooms with great rates. It's wonderful to be able and relax with morning coffee in the quiet and cozy common area before walking out to hit the...

Stayed here recently and it can't be beat for the location and cost. It's not the Ritz-Carlton but it's a clean - safe place to rest your head at night. I didn't have a car so I didn't have to worry about parking but why do you need a car on a tiny little island? You can walk anywhere you...

This is going to be lengthy but please read it all as I would hate for anyone to experience what we just experienced. We took the Key West Express down on Friday, May 20th for my husband's birthday weekend. We had booked the room 2 weeks prior to our travel date directly on their website so there was no third...

The customs house is located within walking distance to everything you will want to do while you in Key West. The price for our stay was about average but didn't have to spend a penny on a cab ride all week so saved a fortune. The room was clean and better than some much more expensive places I have stayed...

The first disappointment was our own fault. We had lived in Key West several years ago and mistakenly thought that the Old Customs House had perhaps been renovated into an Inn. It had not. And, the Old Customs House Inn was another location about three blocks away from the actual Old Customs House. We were assigned room # 2, on...
