The Chelsea house is located on Truman and a short distance from Duval. We enjoyed biking to and from all areas of Key West. Although the pool is small it has a perfect mix of sun and shade with plenty of seating. The inn is charming and rooms were comfortable and clean. The breakfast buffet was pretty basic and consisted...

My girlfriend and I checked into a small room for a two night stay. When we got settled and everything un-packed, we found out there was NO hot water for a shower! When we finally got another room, there were no face clothes, HUMAN hair on the bath towels, NO mirrors in the room, ONE outlet for electronics, and one...

Dear Ron U, Thank you for your review; I have to say, though, that I am surprised by it and think you are not being fair. Everyone remembers you quite well because you were screaming & using profanity towards both our front desk and maintenance staff. It was also very apparent that you were quite inebriated when you arrived. Your...

Very nice looking b&b. Two bad points; air conditioning in our room was very noisy, a bit like a jumbo jet in the room with us and we had to have it on all night because it was so hot, so could not sleep with the noise! Secondly, our TV had no picture, only sound. Thankfully we were only there...

My husband and I wanted to experience the atmosphere of old town Key West and be within walking distance to all the excitement. We found a gem of a hotel last weekend which met all our needs. From first impressions from the outside we knew we had found something special. And we were even more excited after speaking with Beth...

I usually stay at the Cypress House but because of all the bad reviews since the change in ownership decided to try another Guest House. This is a nice clean and quiet house with a spacious pool area, and in a very convenient location. Our stay was great except for the check in process which lasted 20 minutes. I have...

We booked two nights but extended the stay to a third. This place is within walking distance to many places and have free parking outside. The pool area is really cosy with free breakfast. Rooms are nice but tend to be a bit small. I would really recommend this place!

The room was small but pleasant, balcony was very nice. But for the price paid (> $250 per night) the breakfast was very poor - disposable plates/cutlery, orange juice from concentrate, poor food. The house itself was a bit on the shabby side given the room pruice, though generally clean. Pool was small but pleasant.

Chelsea House was a quaint place and the people were nice BUT the room was postage stamp size and the bathroom incredibly small and again the PRICE was ENORMOUS. Sorry we wont be returning.

My fiance and I just spent a long weekend in Key West at the Chelsea House and felt it was the perfect location and had all of the amenities we needed. After reading the reviews on here I called the day before we left and requested a room in one of the main houses. So when we checked in, the...

Stayed at hotel with a group of friends Summer 2011 for husband's 30th birthday celebration. The location isn't bad - we walked to most bars, however, taxi-cabbed it home from the docs after snorkeling. Mallory Square is not a short walk either. Room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast is nothing more than bread, yogurt and cereal - not hot...
