We stayed at this nice hotel in colonial-style for two nights. It was not our first choice, but at least we were glad to get a room. There is nothing to say bad about it, staff was really kind, the rooms were clean and nice, bed was big and comfortable, breakfast was also good. We are glad that we took... More

This was a great stay for my fiancé and I who visited Key West for two nights. Desere, the front desk lady was extremely helpful and referred us to great places for food and fun. She's really knowledgeable and passionate about her job. The breakfasts are European style and the rooms are quaint, comfortable, and beautiful. We would definitely stay... More

Great place to stay in Key West! Nicely decorated rooms and a cute courtyard with a relaxing pool. Friendly and helpful staff. Just 2 blocks off Duval St but very quiet! Easy walk to old town and all the attractions that Key West is famous for. Highly recommend the Chelsea House as one of the best places to stay in... More

We booked this hotel via the net because of its excellent location to Duval Street. The hotel was very clean and comfortable and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it.

Please don't stay here. It will ruin your trip. There were ants crawling around the sink and all over the bathroom. When we called the night manager he said the only thing he could do was come into our room with a can of bug spray while our daughter was sleeping. Um, no. The pillow cases were filthy, actual crusted... More

There are a wide variety of mattresses on the market these days, and one of the top-of-the- range types recommended by professionals is the spring mattress. Your room had an actual bed with a spring mattress on top of the box spring, not two box springs. We're sorry if you weren't familiar with spring mattresses vs. foam mattresses, and that... More

Stayed here for the one night after driving down for a night out on Duval Street. The young woman on reception went out of her way to help us find the right room, which was appreciated seeing as we were only staying the one night. Room was spacious enough well equipped and very comfortable and so was an ideal chilling... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at the Chelsea House hotel over Fourth of July weekend. Having read prior reviews, I felt I knew what to expect when we arrived at the property and we weren't disappointed. I would say, reviews stating the rooms are on the smaller side, and there are multiple buildings are accurate. Our room was... More

We stayed overnight at this hotel after having a reservation made by the welcome center outside of key west. I was excited to be staying in a B&B for the first time although the $200 price seemed a little steep. The room we had on the second floor was small, the door didn't close well and had a airspace all... More

It sounds like there was definitely a miscommunication between you and the Visitors Center which called and made the reservation. We are not a "Bed & Breakfast," but we do offer a complimentary continental breakfast daily from 8:00 - 10:00am for guests who wish to partake of it. Also, there is never a way to get a lower rate by... More

Very nice looking hotel spread across a number of properties with onsite parking, but had a more B&B feel than a hotel. Room was very nice but lacking any storage space in the bedroom (5 coat hangers on the wall) or shelving in the bathroom so we were unable to unpack anything for the three nights that we were there....

When we ordered this hotel we fell for the charm. However when we Got here we Got one of the new rooms - they were alright but not old and charming as we had hoped. The breakfast was quite boring - only bread and some oats with a little fruit. It was rather boring. One Day I had a muffin... More

Down here in the beautiful Florida Keys, those of us who live here quickly learn that we can't leave any kind of sweet food sitting around uncovered because somehow those pesky little ants will find it, whether it's in our homes, in your hotel room, at the beach, or anywhere really. I'm sorry about your muffin. The houses that comprise... More
