The room and facility was as advertised. The accomodation was as expected. It is a 2 star accommodation - nothing more / nothing less. The issue I had with the hotel is the billing practice of the hotel. My room was reserved using the hotel web site. The confirmation provided by the hotel gave a total amount due of $570.37... More

this review is written by the traveler's father who was never at our facility. Our resv system erroneously charged guest's that were upgraded the price of the upgraded room, as explained to the parent . This error occurred on all guests for that period. We apologized and correct the error immediately along with an updated room receipt. Also explained to... More

Traveled July 4th-6th. I wanted to be smack in the middle of Duval Street action for the 4th of July weekend debauchery. After a long flight delay, we arrived in Key West just when the fireworks started to go off. Once we arrived to Old Customs House Inn, I knew we made the right decision by booking with them. You...

I stayed 4 nights in the Old Custom House Inn. We stayed in room #3. My first impression was the place was super clean. Yes, the furniture was older and the shower is small but that didn't bother me at all. The room is equipped with a microwave, coffee maker and a mini fridge. The upstairs room have a balcony... More

This was our 3 rd stay at the Old Customs House on Duval St. It has all the extras one might want. It's right between Hogs Breathe saloon and Sloppy Joe's saloon. It's right behind the smallest Bar in Key West and it has a Cuban Restaurant right in front. Your just down the street from Mallory Square and 2... More

I went with my friends after years that we r no together and had a great time... Pet friendly in the right place just in the Duval st. Close to everything walk distance... The room was very comfortable the beds too... The smallest bar welcome u to key west and the porch in the back is very nice.

I picked this place because from what I saw on their website looked tropical and the right place. I use to live in key west so I know what the island is about and how duval street is at night. The best thing about this being on duval you save on taxi's which is huge for saving money and no... More

Stayed at the inn last week. After reading reviews on here I was skeptical at first, but our stay and experience was great at the inn. Check in is very laid back. Got our keys walked into the studio 3, and was very impressed. Checked for bed bugs, there were zero. Finally saw a cockroach the day we were leaving,... More

This place is a place to crash. It isn't terribly filthy, but it isn't clean. They do have roaches. I didn't see bedbugs. The shower is the size of a phone booth. Bring your own shampoo. If you're looking for a nice hotel experience, don't stay here

This is truly the worst hotel i have ever stayed at on my life. I didn't want to believe the reviews, and gave it a whirl but guess what?! All the bad reviews were correct! Bed bugs scouring the counters and walls, the maid comes whether you want her to or not, and doesn't even bother to flush when she... More

if you were having a third world experience then it is without a doubt that you had it somewhere OTHER than this establishment . Perhaps your impression of our Guest House was for some unmentionable reason skewed horribly. It appears that the recent reviews are an attempt by either an unhappy individual or other properties to make us look bad.... More

This is by far the worst place I have ever stayed in my life. I am not a fancy traveler and have stayed in many motels in my time. This again, is THE WORST. Where do I begin.... 1- There is no front desk nor is there anyone on the property to assist you. Yes, you pick up the key... More
