On my own in a king room but would not like to have shared. Little storage space and a single chair. Room was clean and linen very nice, tho A/C was noisy and had to be on all the time. No elevator and would not have wanted a steep climb to level 3. Breakfast a joke; outside in 90+ and... More

We are sorry to learn of your disappointment. Just so you know, there are only three rooms on the third floor, and we always inform guests at the time of booking if they're reserving a third floor room that we don't have an elevator. The continental breakfast includes a variety of breakfast cereals, oatmeal, toast, bagels that are delivered daily... More

Booked a king room and the only thing king was the bed. It was a platform bed and every time we came out of the bathroom one of us hit our shin on the darn bed. The room was very small, had one chair and a bench against the wall. We had to put luggage on the bench and one... More

It's great to know that you appreciated our great team members! Yes, the weather is pretty hot and humid this time of year. We do not have a restaurant, but we display a complimentary continental breakfast poolside every morning for guests who wish to grab a bite to eat before heading out for the day.

Trying to be fair but was very upset to see the conditions of the hotel. The receiving area is SOO HOT and doesn't have air conditioning. The carpets all around the hotel are very dirty. The rooms very small and dated. The TV on the wall has all the cables hanging and showing... I felt like I was staying at... More

We keep the front doors open in order to welcome our guests, so yes, in August and September it tends to be a bit warm in the front desk area when the outside air comes in. The guestrooms are beautifully cool, though, which is the most important part. The Chelsea House Hotel offers some of the lowest rates in Old... More

I must admit for the price I paid (about 169 a night out of season), I expected a little more. My room had a rustic appeal. When I pay $75 a night in Mexico for a room like that, I'm thrilled... but this was not Mexico. There was a small chest of drawers, one chair, two end tables by the... More

We had a small garden room for two nights. The room was small and clean, and at a decent value for Key West. The grounds were nice, the area quiet and the location was very good. We walked everywhere for our two day stay; if we had stayed longer then we would have rented bicycles. The service at the front... More

We reserved an economy queen. Wound up staying in a room near the pool after we were originally assigned a room on the third floor in the attic with a super low ceiling over the bed. The room was small but fine for our needs. Breakfast was fine. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Pool was nice and we took... More

The best thing this hotel has going for it is the location. It's a couple of blocks from Duval Street on a relatively quiet street. The staff is friendly. I just think it's overpriced for what it is. We paid less our room at the Four Seasons hotel in Miami than we did for our room at Chelsea House, and... More

The Historic "Old Town" District of Key West is definitely a more expensive location as far as property prices and therefore hotel rates than many other places, so it's not really possible to compare what you would pay elsewhere to what you pay here. We offer some of the most affordable rates on the island. If you "price shopped" before... More
