The room was in a great location and was old key west style, but could have been cleaned up some more.

home away from home in key west

I have been staying at the Chelsea House since it was the old Red Rooster Inn. Very homey, comfortable, a peaceful green oasis in Key West. It's also pet friendly, so my dog gets to chase the chickens in the garden!
