I recently stayed in the Key West Suite here with some friends. If you are in Key West to enjoy Duval street, this is the best place to stay. There are a lot of options on the island, but being able to stumble in off the street and be right at your hotel door is priceless. The suite was very... More

I'm used to nicer accommodations, but this place was pretty beat up and just not much pride or care taken of the establishment above the bare minimum. Showers are TINY, furniture is junk. It's just rooms in the center of all the big bars. If all you want to do is get drunk 24/7 and pass out for a few... More

I headed down for a couple nights and decided to see for myself if the mixed reviews were accurate. Since it was just me on this trip, it was worth a shot. Especially given the low price I got a couple days before leaving. You have to wait for the "world's smallest bar" to open in order to check in.... More

We were in Studio 4. We were booked to stay from 4/2 - 4/8. We left 4/6. I agree with the other negative reviews.... If we could give this place a negative rating we would. I've been to Key West several times over the years & love everything about the island. Except the Old Customs House Inn. I am not... More

no refunds for early checkout. clearly stated on the website, in addition you checked out 2 days early and never called the office, etc. why would you stay 3 or 4 nights at a place you didnt like and is so "terrible? none of what you wrote is the truth. the truth is that you left Key West and headed...

It is comfortable and clean and if your ok with the basics it is a gem. Right in the heart of the action...not for everyone but if your into the night life and getting the feel of old Key West then this is the place. You check in at the littlest bar next door which you have to have a... More

You really won't find a better place on Duvall Street! Crawling distance to all the fun. Safe, clean, and well-managed. Juan Loves Lucy; Restaurant on premises makes an awesome mojito, even serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Great price for location! We'll be back for sure!

Same bad experience as Frank A. We stayed in the Old Custom House for one night in February. It is neither an inn nor a hotel. It is two rooms on the second floor of a narrow and run-down building with bed, bathroom and galley. Old and threadbare. The front door lock is worn so much that even the key... More

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
