We arrived(3 couples) on 7/5 for a week to celebrate my birthday and our friends anniversary. Check in was a breeze. The ladies in the office could not do enough for us. My friend shipped down decorations so the hotel could decorate the room for me. What a surprise. The manager(Matt) gave us a bottle of champagne. The location was... More

Overall we were impressed with the accommodations. Perfect location central to everything with Seven Fish and Better Than Sex (dessert place) right around the corner. We were in 34C which was on the third floor which is why I give it 4 and not 5. It was just a bit of a hassle getting our luggage up the stairs and... More

The hotel has many small "houses", and each one is a room. They are not big, altough charming. Shower and TV in the room. The breakfest is good, and the pool average (bit small). You can use the hotel's park for 10usd or park on the street. Very well located, just some blocks from Duval st and Ernst Hemingway's house.

Nice location within easy walking distance to Duval Street, The 0 mile marker, Mallory square, Hemingway House and the waterfront. Clean room, comfortable bed, breakfast was good enough to start the day and served in the beautiful back area. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful!

This is a 100+ year old period property tastefully converted into a hotel with character. Easy to find on Truman Avenue opposite the Catholic Church with ample parking in the grounds (but at a $10 dollar a day charge!) The rooms are well appointed and the air conditioning supplemented by a ceiling fan. The pool area is only small and... More

The chelsea house was clean, spacious, and in a great location. There is a full kitchen, big bathroom, and cold ac. We were right off the main drag by only one block. We rented scooters at the garage next door. Being over the laundromat was no bother at all. There was a little street noise, but not too bad. The... More

This is a nice small hotel. The room was small but very nice. The shower was great and the bed was very comfortable. I would recommend staying here. Within walking distance to most bars and Duvall street.

This was a perfect location and a very nice staff. The pool was wonderful when there was no kids in it. I know that I need to book an all adult place in the future. Kids jumping and splashing around does not make for a relaxing getaway. The room was nice but very small
