Stayed 3 nights, clean, no problem checking in early, restaurant below closes around 9 pm, so not noisy and any music from the nearby bar is quite bearable and not so loud you can't sleep. Couple of blocks away there is a large parking area which the guy in the bar where we collected the keys recommended - not cheap... More

Ok. So. You're going to be in the heart of Key West. Bad stuff, No office, rude and sarcastic owner, really uncomfortable bed, mildew tiles in the bathroom, small shower, holes in the wall cover with scotch tape. Outside patio furniture placed in the room. There's a restaurant literally 5 feet from your door so expect lots of noise. *no... More

We loved the fact that it's on Duval Street! Bathroom could need some cleaning, doors could be repaired... But we really enjoyed our stay and sitting outside. Unfortunatelly never met any staff, got the keys in the bar, returned them in there. Recommended for 2 or 3 nights. We will come back and we might stay there again!

We arrived in Key West at 2pm and received at text from the manager that they had over booked and we did not have a room. I called right away and spoke to the manager, who was rude and unapologetic.I felt the least he should do since we had already paid for our stay was find us a new place... More

Truth be told: yes we were overbooked, yes we found you another location, TWICE!! Yes we finally found you a place that accepted pets. When we were notifyied that you planned on bringing a dog , we emailed you... More

I stayed only for one night. Location is perfect, on Duvall street and right across from Sloppy Joes. Much more cleaner than most of other big hotels that also ends with ´Inn´. Nice little Cuban restaurant just outside your room. I highly recommend this.

We stayed a few nights here for my husband's 40th birthday. It was a very fun time. The location was amazing and the staff were very friendly. Loved the bird! Very casual atmosphere, we checked in at the bar and checked out with the maid. I'm not used to such a casual process but there were no problems. We can't... More

Located on Devale St. just opposite Sloppy Joes bar, in the very heart of Key West. Despite this, the rooms are not on the street as are just behind a Cuban restaurant which muffles the noise..the only thing that might keep you awake is the parrot on the terrace!! The room was beautiful..quaint and decor fitted the Key West vibe.... More

When it comes to travel and where to stay, I always prefer staying close to where all the actions are to save time and effort to get back to the hotel. It’s also a better way to experience a city. Old Customs House Inn offers exactly that, plus way, way more! It is right in the middle of Duval Street... More

I had the intention of staying here based on just looking over their website, however when I called to inquire about bringing my dog (as they mention they are a pet friendly place), the person who answered the phone was so rude that he almost closed the phone in my face and told me they allowed just small dogs. He... More

This place is nothing more than a run down garage apartment with hand me down furnishings and linens. Ask to see a room before you pay. If it was cheap I would understand but it's not. We left without even taking a shower the next morning.

amazing that Trip Advisor would consider posting your reviews to our site. Your previous damning review was deeleted for obvious reason as should this one be. We are asking that your account be deleted More
