You couldn't ask for a better location or price! My fiancé and I had several conversations about how convenient our room was! All the restaurants are right there in walking distance , if you do any shopping you can drop your bags off periodically without an inconvenience, if you wanna get away from the noise you can, and we loved...

We have been to Key West many times as we live in SW Florida. We tried to book some rooms late and ended up at this place as everything else was full. The Key West Express got in around noon and we went to the smallest bar to inquire and the bar tender was extremely rude, saying, "You cannot check...

You are right on Duval. Josh the manager is great! Checking in was super easy..our room was very nice with kitchenette which made going to market and eating in room really nice. We don't go out to eat a lot due to our diet. So amazing to sit out on rooftop terrace and listen to the band next door and...

We had a great time staying here. Our room was down a hidden leafy passageway, past a Cuban restaurant Pickles the parrot and up an outside wooden staircase. Outside was a verandah with a table and chairs. Then through French windows into a big room with a useful kitchenette, comfy chairs, a double bed and a little bathroom. Do be...

I am a early to bed and early riser, while our friends are night owls. It worked out great for all four of us. The rooms were spacious with kitchenettes which we did not use. We had the suite in the front and I expected it to be noisy but it really wasn't. I would highly recommend the Smallest Bar...

Stayed at the Smallest Bar Inn for 3 nights in January. Check-in was quick and easy, and the room was great: comfortable bed, nice seating area and kitchenette with some basic dishes and silverware. Small bathroom (and no hair dryer) but the convenience of the location trumped the small bathroom. Yes, you could hear the music at Hogs Breath Saloon...

The room is small, basic fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Tiny shower. Towels provided are old and rough. The TV only had one channel. The bed was horrible!!! Very hard with old coils poking you in the back. Called the manager Josh to see if he could do anything or maybe have something to put on top of the bed...

we must tell you that all mattresses and linens, towels included are updated regularly. there would NEVER be "coils poking you" for 2 reasons: the first being that coils are not used in the top mattresses for quite a number of years now. The second being that the State of Florida regularly inspects rooms (every 6 months). Therefore it would...

Thoroughly enjoyed a week long stay at The Smallest Bar Inn. The room was huge. The location on Duval was perfect. Mini fridge, microwave, and coffee pot were handy for snacks and drinks in the room. There was a Cuban restaurant onsite. Also onsite is The Smallest Bar in Key West, a funky little spot for a cold one or...

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...
