Pros - good location, nice buildings, nice pool area and gardens. Cons - some rooms are the size of a broom closet and lack amenities; I had booked "Superior Queen", not "Standard Queen"; The Superior was so small that it had room for a single night stand - which was actually a fridge?!? and a single night light on one...

Dear Eikp, Thank you for your review. I wanted to let you know that we are not officially, nor unofficially, a B&B at all. Chelsea House does serve a complementary Continental breakfast poolside every morning, just enough to get you started as you head out to explore Key West. We also do serve both iced water and iced tea out...

The Chelsea House was a great place to stay in Key West. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. They helped my friend and I book a sunset sail on The Appledore II, by making a lot of phone calls :) That turned out to be an awesome experience, too. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The location is...

Key West in high season is not inexpensive, but Chelsea House is a reasonably priced in-town option. Though it's located on busy route 1, our room faced the lovely patio/pool area in back that connected the three houses making up the property, so street noise was not an issue. The beds and pillows were a bit hard for our taste,...

My daughter and I had our first visit to Key West Feb 18th for 4 nights and really enjoyed the location and service of the Chelsea. We also had to ask to be moved from the suite near the parking as the recycling and garbage removal was too loud. Luckily we secured another king suite on the second floor of...

This was our first trip to Key West. We had a wonderful time at the Chelsea. Bryan & Betsy at the front desk are fabulous people. They gave us places to eat at and things to do. We chatted with them on many occasions. It was as if we had known them for awhile. True heritage homes. Small rooms but...

This was our first visit to Key West and I didn't want to stay in a "chain hotel". This was the perfect place to capture the Key West charm. It was a couple blocks from Duval Street and within walking distance of all the main attractions. The staff was very friendly. Everytime we walked into the lobby, I felt like...

Although we hadn't chosen to stay here. when we checked in Beth could not have been more helpful. She took us through everything pointing out local attractions.

We can make it very simple. Just walk up the steps to the office, be careful, on the broken steps. Entering to there reception area notice the carpet stains, the general condition of there office. The entrance tells it all.
