We are only commenting on OUR experience in this review. Our room was good value and anyone who stays here should appreciate the hotel is an old hotel in the old area of town. You could not be better located for everything Key West has to offer without being in the noisy central strip of Duval street (which is a...

We stayed here because of it's central location and "Key West feel". The room rates seemed a bit steep until we got a better feel for the service and atmosphere. After staying there, we found everything about the hotel was great. The location was very central and within walking distance to just about everything. The property was VERY nice. The...

Extremely small rooms and very loud air conditioning! Breakfast served outside even when raining ☹️Not quaint and too expensive for the size room. All queen rooms are not equal!!! No space to hang clothes or leave out toiletries.

Hi Francine, Sorry you happened to visit Key West during one of the only rainy weeks we've had for almost a year. I know it put a damper on your stay (no pun intended.) With regards to the air conditioning, if you're accustomed to central a/c which is virtually impossible to detect, then staying somewhere with even professional-grade wall units...

BAD EXPERIENCE: SMALLEST ROOM EVER STAYED, 1/2 Ceiling, 1/2 Doors, 1/2 Bathroom, $300 OVERPRICED!!!!! MISLEADING SALE... In addition, and the worst part of all, a 12' height climb on a 2' wide stair to get to the room, a VERY DIFFICULT TASK for anybody over 20 years old carrying luggage. I am appalled by this hotel selling these "Queen Size...

We're sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with your experience at the Chelsea House Hotel. I would like the opportunity to point out a couple of things. #1- We have a variety of different types of rooms at the hotel, ranging from the smallest and aptly named "Economy Queen Rooms" that offer one of the lowest prices in all of...

This hotel is overpriced. The room we originally got was small and dark. Toilet and basic shower just off the room and a hand basin in the room itself. Nowhere to put toiletries. We upgraded and the second room was a lot better, and a lot more expensive. There is no bar in this hotel. There was iced water beside...

The room rates at the Chelsea House Hotel are among the lowest in the island's historic district, but yes, Key West is not an inexpensive destination. There are so many bars within walking distance that we certainly don't need to add one on-site--instead, we keep it nice and peaceful here as a retreat from all of the action a couple...

Stayed here at the end of march 2017. It's a bit of a walk to the bars on duval but definitely worth it. Kate and Leanna at the front desk were the friendliest and most helpful people you could meet. They gave us great dinner recommendations and also saw it was my birthday (on my license) and went above and...

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...

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...
