we stayed at the chelsea house for two day and loved it. great location, quiet and a wonderful value. we got the deluxe room with the king size bed. very comfortable and it came with a very sweet pet cat. we would stay there again. the only improvement could be a jacuzzi.

not far from Duval main street, rent comes with parking, rooms are basic, downturn is small bathroom, old and poor beds, very disappointing breakfast, nice backyard with swimming pool. Overall not worth the money we paid for.

We really enjoyed our one night at the Chelsea House on October 26, 2009. My husband and I had traveled to Key West for a short trip away from Minnesota before winter brought snow and cold weather. We only stayed at the Chelsea house one night when we couldn't cancel our other hotel reservation that was farther away from Duval. The service at check-in was great and our room was ready at the time that it was supposed to be. We were in the Butterfly Room on the second level. The room was spacious and comfortable. The shower was a little small and wasn't someplace you wanted to spend a lot of time in - get in and get out, but the bathroom did the trick. The pool was small, but small in a cute way. The breakfast was also very good and hit the spot after a night out of drinking on Duval. Will consider staying here again on our next trip to Key West!

Just wasn't up to par. Someone different at the front desk every time you called or stopped by, seemed that no one really knew what was going on. The railings on the balcony of our second floor room were rotted and falling out. Tree branches were growing over one side of our balcony. The bed was not level so your feet were higher than your head and and you rolled to one side. There was what appeared to be pet hair all over the carpet. This was supposed to be a free upgrade to one of their better suites, I would hate to see what it would be without the upgrade. Wifi does not work in the room that we were in.

My wife and I really enjoyed our 3 night stay at this charming little B and B. We found it quiet and comfortable. It was close enough to Duval Street where all the action is to be able to walk there in about 5 to 10 minutes, yet it was far enough away to give us peace and quiet when we wanted it. The hotel and grounds were all beautifully maintained and our hosts were very friendly and helpful. It was great to be able to leave the car behind at their parking area and not have to fight it out down in old town for parking. Was it the Ritz-Carlton?, no, but in my opinion this is the way Key West is meant to be. Highly recommended by this Mid- fifties couple.

We both loved the luxury of the room, the large space and lovely old - fashioned feel of another time, and lived in the pool. The little breakfast area and pool were perfect for both sun and shade and the privacy factor in the house and pool were very important to us. Easy access to everything and nice to return to after a day in the heat.

Had a wonderful stay at Chelsea House for I week in Key West. Renting bikes( Eaton Street Bikes) was the way to go. They dropped off the bikes and picked them up at the Chelsea House. The staff helped with all our arrangements, snorkeling, dining, transportation etc. Don't miss cafe con leche at Sonnys Deli 2 blocks away. All of Duval Street is within walking Distance, that is where we went at night. Best beach is Fort Zachary Taylor Beach. There is a minimal charge but well worth it Food, restrooms, snorkel gear rental available
