I hadn’t been to Key West in 30 years ( my boyfriend had never been)  Needless to say it has REALLY become “touristy”  but our stay at Chelsea House was a real taste of the past, which is what I had hoped for.  The gardens / pool / room were all exactly what I had hoped for.  Great location too…. able to walk to almost everything.  Don’t change anything!!! I will be back, I just don’t know when. (I won’t wait for 30 years years next time!)

We were after somewhere we could relax during the day but was still fairly central to explore Key West. The Chelsea House did just that. Comfortable rooms, friendly & professional staff and a good pool area were just what we wanted. Duffy’s and Pinchers were good local restaurants and the Coffee shop next to Peppers was used many times! This was our second stay in your hotel collection and we had a very good time each time. Thank you.

When we decided to visit Key West for the first time this year, we wanted to ‘feel’ the area. We wanted an historic inn that was centrally located, but still offered a pool & a comfortable room. Chelsea House exceeded our expectations! The staff was welcoming; our room was exceptionally clean & comfortable; the pool common area was clean, inviting & relaxing! Having complimentary water & refreshments in the pool area was a nice touch! The only down side was not a big one – on our day of departure, the pool-side breakfast was not ready when promoted, but it did give us time to mingle with other guests. Would we recommend Chelsea House? Absolutely! A wonderful experience & stay!

The grounds and accommodations at this quaint hotel were lovely. We felt welcomed from our first encounter with the sweet receptionists who gave us hints on what to do on our stay.  The hotel is about 3 blocks from Duval Street where we challenged ourselves to find the best key lime pie. We chose the Key West Key Lime Pie Co.  Caroline’s was second but dinner there was the best!

We found a small cockroach in our bathroom before we went to bed. It was unsettling and the receptionist did not seem to think anything of it when my husband told her the next day.

Thank you for helping make our visit to Key West a great experience! We spent 2 nights there in mid-april 2014 and stayed in room 33B. The staff was very helpful in all ways – from helping get us oriented to the island to helping coordinate our bike rentals, there was no question that they were not able to assist with. The cleaning/house staff was AMAZING. They were helpful to us in a wide variety of ways, the only name that I can remember offhand is Linda, so please express our thanks to her and her team for a great experience. Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any other questions and I will be more than happy to work with you from there.

Overall our stay was very pleasant and when we return to Key West we will most likely stay at Chelsea House.  We have two small dogs and appreciated a place to stay in Key West.  Our only difficulty was the absence of grass area(s) for our dogs. The doggy bags were a nice touch.  One possible improvement would be to add a grassy area, either real grass or artificial turf (which there are some really great products available for pooches).

The room was very clean and well equipped although a bit small (#10 unit). The only downside was no flat areas in bathroom to place items on.  Maybe a shelf above the sink would be helpful.

Again, thanks for a pleasant stay.

Chelsea House is a charming hotel, and we enjoyed our stay there. No, it doesn’t have the amenities and glitz of an expensive resort. But it was quiet and quaint, and the atmosphere was tropical and fun, all for a decent price. We stayed there for a wedding, along with about 10 other wedding guests, all of whom had a great time. The rooms were well sized, comfortable, and clean. The staff was very accommodating, from check-in, to planning activities, to check-out. They had a complimentary cold breakfast buffet that provided the breakfast basics, and they had complimentary iced tea by the pool throughout the day. The pool was great! Not huge but well sized for the size of the hotel.

We were 2 blocks from Duval street, about midway between the east and west end of Duval, which made it easy to go out on the town without needing a car or other transportation. We were within easy walking distance of other activities in Key West too (full disclosure, we are from NYC and are used to walking a bit). I liked being a little deeper within real key west, instead of at one of the large resorts or along the touristy Duval street. They had ample parking for everyone.

This is our second stay for my husband and I. We were quite comfortable with our king size bed and asked for the same room number again. Pool is relaxing, sun deck is optimal UV index, continental breakfast is fresh and local items. Afternoon tea helps to rehydrate. Love the new red cushioned patio furniture. Betsy was always a huge help and eager to hear of our adventures. We also visited the Mojito Bar twice at the Lighthouse Court Hotel, another of their properties. Enjoyed Ray and Peter’s company and fresh mojito’s. Can’t wait to come back, may even bring our teen daughters. Got a room for 4?
