Hotel was very clean and had a nice pool area. Very close to Duval St. Check-in and check-out was very fast and easy. We will definitely... More

The hotel is outdated and in need of repair. The shower in our bath had filth between the tiles both nights of our stay. They credited us one night should have credited us both for these unsanitary conditions. Breakfast was poor also not a good value at all unless you don't care about personal hygiene or outdated sub par

First off, if you are not anorexic, and if you have back problems, this place is NOT for you. The shower is the smallest I have ever seen, you can't bend (so ladies forget about shaving) and you can barely turn around and wash your back. It's gross enough staying at this very outdated hotel, let alone having your body... More

We aim to provide our guests with a wonderful, homey Key West experience, and I apologize if anything wasn't of the highest standard at the time of your stay. I would... More

I was not too sure with my booking after I read the comments on trip advisor. It seems like the non-renovated rooms generate the bad comments. When we arrived, we asked for a renovated room and we couldn't have been happier with the room we got. The check-in was quick and friendly. There was plenty of parking space, which was... More

We stayed here 4 nights and picked it, well to be honest it was the only place last minute in our price range as we changed or travel plans 2 days before heading out. When we checked in I requested a coffee maker as I like to roll out of bed to a cup of coffee. Especially when I am... More

Chelsea House is a really cute place off of Trumon and walking distance to Duval. It has a nice pool and a breakfast selection that is small but was enough for my crowd. The House itself is very Key West chic and the staff was very friendly. My only complaint was that we got one of the cheaper rooms and... More

We found this room to be unbelievably small for the price charged. The room was originally part of the upstairs porch. The bathroom was so small that you could actually rest your head on the opposite wall while sitting on the commode. And for the price, one would expect that the water pressure in the shower would be better than... More

our greeting staff member "Yellena" was very professional and wanted to accommodate in any way. She gave several restaurant suggestions. all good. Small but nice pool. Breakfast was ok. Rooms were ok but this is an old B&B. Good location to most everything. couple blocks off duval.

We chose the Chelsea House because-well honestly because our favorite B&B was full- and we were not disappointed.
