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...

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...

We have stayed here many times (The Old Customs House) because it allowed pets, and our friends have a dog who goes to Key West with us all. The owner, however, also has a cat who roams the premises freely and loves to sleep with the clientele, something I now find necessary when I look for a hotel. The place...

Watch out for added charges. We were hit with a $25 "room user fee" for no apparent reason. The room was very shabby and the bed was uncomfortable. If you have a car be prepared for a long search for a parking unless you arrive very early or late. This is no fault of the hotel as they do not...

More bang for the buck! The rooms are actually larger than expected with small kitchenettes. The patio is host to an outdoor bar called "Juan Loves Lucy" and a parrot. Private, locked and safe. When the bar closes, they lock the gate in which you have a key to keep the drunks out. Don't worry about the noise because your...
