Just got back from a weekend holiday in Key West! This was my first time visiting the keys. I'm so glad we chose the Chelsea House. This establishment is very quaint and relaxing. Within walking distance to everything. 24 hour CVS,one block away. Very convient location. Park your car for free! Check in was quick and friendly. Rooms are beautiful,...

My wife and I stayed at The Chelsea House for 2 nights, and we were super disappointed with the quality given the price. The desk staff was eager to please and if everything else was up to their quality, it would be great. But nothing else was up to par. The big king size beds in the pictures are NOT...

We loved this Inn. I could not find one thing wrong with this place. Right from the minute we checked in we were impressed. Big thank you to Betsy, who was super efficient, helpful and friendly. We stayed in room 5 which was a large room, king bed and decent size bathroom. Breakfast is very good, toast, cereal, coffee etc...

Charming historic Inn in a super location, just a few blocks walk from downtown. Rooms have wonderful ambience; good continental breakfast (included); friendly staff and free parking! Very relaxing surrounds with real Key West feel. Wish we could have stayed longer than the one night (March 13, 2013)! Very happy we chose this location over the better known hotels.

I was very impressed by the courteousness and friendliness of the staff there from top to bottom. They made us feel like we were at home. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms were very clean. We didn't wanna leave. We will be back to Keywest soon and guess where we're staying.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Chelsea House on Truman Avenue in Key West. It’s a beautiful place with a lot of character and nicely manicured grounds especially around the pool area. It is within walking distance to everything including the Southernmost Point, Sloppy Joe’s, and the Little White House. We got probably the cheapest room available...

We booked late so we took what we could get. Didn't hate it and didn't love it. CONS: Noisy accommodations. Air conditioner in room 25 loudly turned on and off and rattled above my head all night causing very interrupted sleep. Could hear doors shutting as the later guests arrived. My room adjoined another room so could hear everything in...

My husband and I are a 60 year old couple who travel a lot. After a 4 night stay at this hotel we have some comments to share that you may feel helpful when searching for a room. There were good and bad things about this hotel. First the good stuff: We booked a room in 33 A, a large...

The staff was very nice, otherwise I might not have rated it as high. It is a historic building, but the place could keep a handy man busy for a long time. We stayed four nights, and that might also be why I wasn't so impressed. Four days gives you time to notice things, like nails sticking up on the...
