My wife and I spent 4 wonderful days in your Chelsea House Hotel. From the first greeting upon arrival to our departure, guest service was exceptional.  We have a combined total of over 85 years in customer service, management, and ownership.  Your staff demonstrated all the traits we learned and then taught over the years putting the guest first.  The facility itself maintains that quaint old city atmosphere while being updated with modern conveniences.  We returned home well rested, well fed, well entertained all the while looking forward to our return.

I suddenly drove to Key West on a whim having been surprised to read it was the southernmost point in the US. I had just come to the US from the southernmost point in Europe where I expected to retire but cannot and decided I should symbolically then touch down in the counterpoint in the US for no other reason than I had never been in Key West as well.

I arrived in early evening after driving 8 hours and pulled into a large driveway as I realized I was coming to an end and discovered the historic inn. I like historic places and went to see if there might be a room in the inn for me. To my surprise and pleasure, I met a nice young man named Humberto who answered every question, engaged in a nice intelligent conversation with me bothering him, and booked me in for 3 nights instead of my intended 1 night stay in Key West.

I enjoyed the room and porch and pool (breakfast could be fuller) and other employee helpfulness and wandering in Key West and looking at the southernmost point really within the base. I now enjoyed learning that I even apparently saw the owner talking about the nice porch being built while I was in the pool watching with interest the job being done on a historic place as I am building something on a custom job. A good job being done with consideration for the swimmers.

I wish you all continued success and while I do not think I would return to Key West per se, you all made my one visit quite memorable and I appreciate the efficiency and efforts.

Oh – I recommend Duffy’s T-bone steak that your person recommended – I had been looking for such a steak for some time and it was wonderful and service was pleasant. Also, a small place around the corner which of course I cannot remember the name of off of the main streets with wonderful made cole slaw and mouth watering shrimp cocktail.

The hotel is gorgeous. Historic but modern. It was really a treat to stay here. Very clean and well taken care of. It’s in walking distance to the downtown area (and the island is small so pretty much walking distance to everything!).  We did day trips each day and had no issues walking to the water and back a few times a day. Breakfast provided was nice and so was the pool (small but relaxing). The staff was extremely helpful in giving us tourist options (places to go, eat, visit, things to do). They were really there to help us with whatever we needed. If we go to Key West again (which we will because it’s amazing), I will definitely look into staying at this hotel again. Thank you!

The hotel was adorable and conveniently located. The room was clean and simple. A small fridge would have been a great addition.  Pool was really nice and quiet. Breakfast was convenient and pretty good. On our last day, they allowed us to go to the sister hotel, Key Lime Inn, so we could use the restroom and facilities. One complaint was that we were out of our room all morning, until almost 3pm, When we came back, we wanted to shower but the room still hadn’t been made up, which was a little frustrating. But when we called about this, they took care of it right away, which we appreciated. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again.

From the moment we entered to check in I felt very welcomed. The lady at the front ( sorry, don’t remember her name) was very warm and welcoming. Offered us coffee and water, gave us an overview of the hotel and explained where things were around the town. I booked one of the smaller rooms, and was pleasantly surprised to get an upgrade to a larger room. The breakfast was the usual cereal, bagels, muffins, fruit, etc. But it was all good quality and being able to sit by the pool while eating was nice. Next time we’re in Key West I would definitely stay here again, or maybe check out one of their sister properties.

Chose this charming, historic hotel based on positive reviews and value. We found the check in process to be efficient and very enjoyable due to the pleasant young man at the front desk, Humberto. Room was nice on the second floor with a large shared porch which over looked Truman Ave.  Also a lovely front porch on the first floor which was great relaxing and for people watching.  Room and hotel grounds were clean as was pool.  Continental breakfast was average as are most in Key West. All staff knowledgeable about area and helpful. Best activity we found in KW was the walking Food Tour. Would recommend this hotel and food tour to anyone visiting KW.

Thank you for a wonderful stay at your beautiful Bed & Breakfast. The staff are always very friendly and go above and beyond. We came to Key West to celebrate my mother in law’s birthday and had a blast. Some of our family had never been to the Keys.  The location is great, close to Duval Street and all the restaurants and of course bars.  Keep up the good work and we will see you again soon.

Our stay here was absolutely fantastic! Matt greeted us at 1pm, and we were going to ask to just leave our bags for when the room was ready. Instead his reply was go ahead, here is your key and your room is ready for you! Then he gave us suggestions on where to eat and what to do! He was so nice to work with. Our room was clean and located by the pool. We didn’t mind being close to the pool. There was barely any noise and we never saw any kids! Which for us was amazing! The brunch is out by the pool which is super helpful when your in a hurry to get to your snorkeling adventure or still hungover from Duval street fun! We were super lucky the weekend we went was singer/songwriters festival and Chelsea House was a short walk to everything on the island. The pool was so relaxing and everything was absolutely perfect and the staff was very accommodating. I have already referred this place to all my friends and family! Just a tip about KW- don’t bring a vehicle. Use a Bike or Golf Cart!

We stayed at the Chelsea House Hotel for part of our honeymoon and fell in love with it. The location is perfect for walking around Duval Street and doing some sightseeing. The staff was very helpful and also very friendly. The room was extremely clean and comfortable. If we ever come back to Key West, this is where will stay. I highly recommend the Chelsea House Hotel for anyone visiting this area.
