Booked this last minute and could not have been more pleased. Josh was extremely welcoming to this establishment and helped us get squared away immediately. I was traveling with a group of friends 23-25 so we got one of the suites. The suite was clean and the AC worked perfectly. When I am going to Key West, I am looking...

Great little place right in the heart of it all, walk out in to the very keys style court yard and right out to duval street from there. Very clean and well kept rooms with great rates. It's wonderful to be able and relax with morning coffee in the quiet and cozy common area before walking out to hit the...

Stayed here recently and it can't be beat for the location and cost. It's not the Ritz-Carlton but it's a clean - safe place to rest your head at night. I didn't have a car so I didn't have to worry about parking but why do you need a car on a tiny little island? You can walk anywhere you...

This is going to be lengthy but please read it all as I would hate for anyone to experience what we just experienced. We took the Key West Express down on Friday, May 20th for my husband's birthday weekend. We had booked the room 2 weeks prior to our travel date directly on their website so there was no third...

The customs house is located within walking distance to everything you will want to do while you in Key West. The price for our stay was about average but didn't have to spend a penny on a cab ride all week so saved a fortune. The room was clean and better than some much more expensive places I have stayed...

The first disappointment was our own fault. We had lived in Key West several years ago and mistakenly thought that the Old Customs House had perhaps been renovated into an Inn. It had not. And, the Old Customs House Inn was another location about three blocks away from the actual Old Customs House. We were assigned room # 2, on...

Horrible experience. No one answers the phone. Booked online through an outside source - email told us to stop by and ask about parking - there is none. You stop at the smallest bar next door and she gave us the keys and says I have nothing to do with anything else and suggested a parking lot 3 blocks away...

Being value conscious, I trust Tripadvisor for the highest rated, least expensive accommodations at my location of choice. Old Customs House Inn met that description. The reviews were mixed, but we were extremely pleased with our room. The location could not have been better. Check-in and check-out were seamless at the Smallest Bar. They kindly stored our bags when we...

I stayed here with my mom in February 2016. We took the Key West Express from Ft Myers Beach and it was an easy walk to the Old Customs House. With a stop along the way for a refreshing beverage at Schooner Wharf. Great location and close to everywhere mom wanted to go. Nothing fancy but clean and convenient. This...
