Chelsea Hotel provided us with the perfect place to stay for four nights. It is located near Duval Street, many restaurants, and close to a small shopping center with a CVS. Also close to the Old Town section of Key West- beautiful homes to look at while walking down Elizabeth Street. The pool is awesome. Tropical landscape surrounding it provides... More

The management owns three to four guest houses three of which are contiguous along Truman Ave. The guest houses were formerly large, stately homes built around 1900 that have been renovated and made into very comfortable rooms. They have a B&B feel to them. Guest rooms are unique and several retain their original architecture, staircase and wood moldings, etc. There... More

Our room was VERY clean and spacious, not that we spent much time in our room. Although I'm sure we would have enjoyed it. They had on-site parking too which is a precious commodity in Key West. We didn't stay long enough to enjoy the quiet pool and sunning deck or even the private porch/balcony. I think we would have... More

Hotel was great but not worth the uncomfortable and embarrassing bed bugs I noticed all over my body when I got home. Manager was apologetic on the phone and all but still definitely won't be coming back here and letting all my friends know not to as well.

We are sorry that something bit or stung you when you were here in Key West. No mention was made at the time of your stay (i.e. when you woke up in the morning), but you subsequently spoke with a manager by phone after you had left. He did ask about the nature of the bites, and in particular if... More

Nice, quite location on Truman a few blocks off of Duval. Beautiful poor area and nice landscaping. Breakfast was somewhat limited with bagels, muffins and fruit. Would not recommend the rooms on the 3rd floor (34a, b and c) if you like tall ceilings or cold rooms (rooms have small AC units which had a right time keeping up with... More

We were there for a family wedding and this place was a perfect choice for multiple families to gather. The rooms were nice and clean, the pool was clean and inviting and the breakfast was terrific. They did a great job of spacing us out throughout the three building complex so we weren't on top of each other, but could... More

The staff at the hotel was great. The front desk gave good recommendations, responded quickly to complaints and the other hotel staff was very friendly (housekeeping and grounds). We had an economy queen room and found it to be very tight; only 1 bed side table, no place for luggage, constantly hitting head on slanted roof and no counter in... More

The Chelsea House is located in the middle of Key West, only two blocks from Duval Street and all the action. The hotel is comfortable and beautiful. The garden and pool area are especially nice. The breakfast provided is also quite good.

We stayed in Chelsea house over Mother's Day weekend. The staff was very nice and the location was perfect. The breakfast was great but I only have one major complaint. We stayed in the more older Chelsea house. Our room was right above the lobby (room 2). The pictures on all the website are not of what our room looked... More

Hi Jessica, We're glad to hear you appreciated our great location and friendly staff. The accommodations at the Chelsea House Pool & Gardens are actually located in three Victorian-era mansions that stand on a one-acre plot of land with gardens, pool, and deck areas. The building you stayed in is actually newer, built in 1905, than the building next to... More
