We enjoyed our time at the Chelsea House. The room was clean; outdoor veranda off of our room was my favorite part due to the sunshine and cool breezes. We had the least expensive room. It was pretty small but with the added outdoor space it was very comfortable. The double bed was perfectly comfortable. The safe in the room...

What an amazing find! The Chelsea House is a beautiful oasis only minutes away from all the action. It is a quiet spot where you can relax in between your adventures whatever that may include. We will definitely be going back and recommending this place to our friends. Thank you to all the staff incredibly kind and pleasant!!!

This hotel is old Key West, rooms are simply appointed, breakfast is no frills and although the price was higher than I expected for the month of March (high season) it was the most moderately priced option for our one night stay. Although it is away from the hustle and bustle of KW but an easy walk on a cool...

Chose this place due to its convenient location but still in a quiet part of town. Staff were wonderful my room was clean and served its purpose. Just a couple of things I was disappointed in was that my room had no window. The bathroom had a door out to a shared balcony on the ground floor (that was kinda...

I believe you reserved our least expensive option, an Economy Queen Room, but it sounds like paying a little extra for a Superior Queen Room or a King Room like your friends did would have been a better fit for your preferences. We've tried several different types of bed linens over the years, and the ones that most folks like...

We recently stayed at the Chelsea House and found the experience to be excellent. The hotel was beautiful, the room was clean and spacious, and the pool and patio were wonderful. The location served our needs perfectly, as we were able to walk everyplace where we wanted to go. Most of all, the management and staff were outstanding. They help...

We stayed here March 6th for one night at a cost of $312. It was a late booking so I presume that we were given the worst room as it was not worth that money. Breakfast was outside so as it was raining we went to Denny's which was close by. On the plus side, it was clean and the...

March is the peak of the High Season in Key West, so rates are at their highest and things tend to book up fairly quickly. Having said that, if your room wasn't to your liking, I wish you would have let us know, as we may have had something else to offer you. Each and every room at the hotel...

I read reviews on line and this one had mixed. I upgraded to the junior suite. There was more than enough space. Bathroom was very large, modern kitchen amenities. King size bed and sitting area. Outside deck and hammock.... wow. Breakfast was nice, basic but filling. Bagels, toast, hard boiled eggs, cereal and yogurt, muffins and croissant. Perfect beginning to...

The room was extremely clean (but small), continental breakfast by the pool was great. Speaking of the pool....it was excellent. Friendly staff and affordable prices. I did a lot of research when looking for the perfect place to spend time in Key West. Easy access to Duval Street. We walked everywhere. We will be returning to the place!

The room was very clean and had a large bathroom. The room itself was small, but we don't go on vacation to stay in the room! And the price was so affordable. It had a nice pool and a continental breakfast of juice and breads. Overall, we enjoyed the stay.
