We had a marvelous time at the Chelsea House. Right from the beginning we received a very warm welcome from Betsy, front desk. She was extremely helpful in explaining all the amenities of the hotel and gave us great recommendations for dining. We stayed at room 24C, which was all the way on the top floor. It did have some steep steps to get to our room, but it was great exercise and the view we had from the balcony area was worth the steps. Our room was simple but very clean and was more than sufficient for our needs. The breakfast was superb, bread, bagels, croissant, yogurt, fruits, juice, cereal, coffee and tea, and they did not skimp, the servers were constantly attentive to the breakfast area ensuring there was enough supply and everything was kept very clean. The breakfast was served by the pool, which gives a nice ambiance.

There was a nice pool, which we did not use, but there were a few other guests that we saw using. The hotel is 2 blocks from Duval Street, once on Duval there are about 5 blocks before you get into the busy area of downtown. We really enjoyed and highly recommend 915 Duval Restaurant which Besty recommended to us. It was amazing! We also enjoyed Caroline’s and of course our all time favorite Sloppy Joe’s for late night music and fun.

Overall, we had a great time and would stay at the Chelsea House again, although, I think we may try their sister hotel, Key Lime Inn, next door just for a change and see how that compares. Thank you, Betsy, and the Chelsea House staff for all the thoughtfulness and attentiveness to your guests.

We had a great time at your accommodations but I do not think that would have been possible without the help of Betsy.  She is the best!  Gave us great suggestions – all of which turned out to be very good experiences. If I have anyone going in that direction, I will tell them about your place and to talk to Betsy.  We had a great time!

My wife and I have stayed at the Chelsea House for our two vacations in Key West. We planned our vacations to coincide with our wedding anniversary, and we could not have picked a better place to stay! Warm and inviting, clean and bright, great staff, could not have asked for anything more!!!

Thank You

P.S. I liked the Historic Key West Inns a while ago on Facebook!

We were there on July 2012, we loved it! The Chelsea House makes you feel like home. The continental breakfast was a plus as was the free parking in the property. This 2013 went back to Key West and decided to stay at the Chelsea again, great experience and would recommend to friends and family! Great stay for an awesome place like Key West! The only thing that the room was missing was an iron, other than that was perfect! See you next summer!

Wonderful stay, the young Lady at the front desk was very helpful and a credit to your business. The room was very clean and functional, a little small in size but big enough. Great location, not too far from Duval street and a bike hire place.

Dear Accommodating Staff of The Chelsea House,

I just wanted to take a few minutes to express my gratitude to you for making my recent stay so very pleasant.

I called the front desk a few times before arriving to Key West and each time I was greeted with a warm, professional, staff member who answered all my questions thoroughly and provided reassurance of my reservation.

Upon arrival, I was welcomed by a young lady at the front desk who offered great local recommendations and easy to follow directions. The Chelsea House was superbly located far enough from Duvall to enjoy the quiet and close enough to walk to all the excitement effortlessly.

I have been to Key West before and unfortunately had a different experience staying with other Hotels. I was apprehensive as often times “charming”, “historic” or “rustic” is used to describe dirty, infested, and poorly maintained. The Chelsea House, however, far exceeded my expectations.

I unpacked my things comfortably in my neat, bright, and tastefully decorated room. The room smelled noticeable clean as though someone had just finished making my room just right for me.

My room was conveniently located near the poolside. The pool area was also clean, comfortable, and serene. During the day I observed many staff members diligently cleaning and grooming the property to maintain its magnificent appearance. Since I made use of the pool so often during my stay, I also took advantage of the opportunity to exchange my towels near poolside for clean towels. The gentleman who is responsible for the laundering of the towels always greeted me warmly and I could see the care he took in picking the nicest towels fresh out of the dryer for me.

This trip was a girls getaway trip. Some of my friends who stayed a nearby hotel opted to spend everyday visiting us at our room as our accommodations were just the best!

The Chelsea House is all that it promises to be. I will most certainly be staying with you again and will be recommending you to anyone who desires a truly great vacation in a clean, safe, and fantastic location.

Kindest Regards.

Thank you for the wonderful email and for the wonderful stay. This was our first time to visit Key West and it couldn’t have been better. Our room was small but efficient, we loved the porch and enjoyed our afternoon breaks there. We definitely love the location of the Chelsea House, it was  close to everything and it made it easy for us to find the landmarks that we were interested in.  We plan on future visits to Key West and we couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else.
