My husband came down for a few days and love the location of the inn..This was our second time staying and it went as well as the first! Rooms are clean and spacious. The inn is right in the middle of everything but set back so you don't hear Duval steet noise! Hotel staff and Smallest bar staff are always...

I have stayed at this place annually for many years. It's not the best place, but the location is great! If it's cold out, the rooms can be quite chilly, especially with the gap under the door. The bed creaks, the tv is really small, and the rooms can be quite dark. I don't think that I've ever had a...

We stayed here during Fantasy Fest. You could not ask for a better location. Everyone was super nice. We were even given chairs to sit in for the parade. This is very close to everything. We will go back.

Quaint and personal The Old Customs House defines what a stress free trip to the Keys should be. Carefree, relaxed, convenient, flexible, clean, and perfectly fitting for the weekend. Rooms were big and clean and perfect for a group who dont want to be to far apart and still be right Iin the middle of everything! Josh at the desk...

My friend and I stayed for a weekend and liked it so much we stayed an extra day. The location is great, right on Duval Street within walking distance of everything. The room was clean and the staff was very nice and friendly. The price was great! Can't wait to go back to Key West and stay there again.

I am giving this four stars primarily based on the location of this Inn. We arrived late and had an issue finding our key (it wasn't where we expected it), but the bartender at the Smallest Bar, John, was extremely helpful and friendly and was able to get us into our room at the late hour. Thanks John! There are...

The accommodations were nice, right on Duval Street in the heart of everything. Bad part is, there's no one on site, have to go to the establishment next door (Smallest Bar) to get your room key (typical Key West laid back atmosphere, which is cool) 45 minutes later the "maintenance" person shows up and finally gets me into my room....

I stayed here with my boyfriend and friend for a few nights and it was absolutely perfect for us. The room is nicely sized and well maintained. We would stumble from the bars back to the room, which is about a 30 yard crawl. Once you're in the room though, which is set quite far back from the street, you...

We enjoyed our stay at the Old Customs House Inn (Jan 3-5, 2013). Josh (the manager) was great to work with when we made our reservations, and promptly responded to our inquiries while we were staying there. The Old Customs House Inn is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience the heart of Key West, Duval Street!...
