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!...

We have stayed at Old Customs House Inn half a dozen times and each time have loved it! You can't beat the location right across from Sloppy Joe's. The owner and people working are great and are laid back Key West style. As for a pool, you can use the hotel that is steps away when dining at their poolside...

Spent 1st week of Dec. Rooms were large, very clean, and comfortable. Altho right in the heart of old town, the room was secluded above a lovely garden and restaurant. We could enjoy the folk music from Hogsbreath on our balcony. We will be back real soon!
