I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help making our birthday
weekend extra special! Everything went as planned and the office staff were
all very friendly, helpful and accommodating. I was hoping to get to meet you
but know you must have been busy or hopefully on your days off. ;) Also, we
LOVED the painted coconut! Will forever cherish it!

Mary, you’re a true treasure and The Chelsea House is lucky to have you as
part of their team! The Chelsea House is our forever “go-to” place in Key
West!

Thank you so much again!!!!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Chelsea House. We loved the pool and setting. We loved the location with respect to Duval Street. Nice and quiet, off the beaten path but close enough to walk to everything. There are just a couple of things that would have enhanced our stay.

1. A luggage rack in room 16.

2. Plain instant oatmeal at the breakfast buffet. There were not enough no or low sugar options.

We will recommend your hotel to everyone. We loved our stay. Right from the check in, Betsy was so friendly and helpful. The inn was lovely, our large king room was charming, comfortable and spotless. We used the pool every afternoon and it was warm, the gardens lush and well maintained. Breakfast was perfect, everything you need to start the day. The Inn is a block from Duval Street so it was easy to walk or bike to everything.

I couldn’t even think of one thing to improve or change about your inn or our stay.

Thank you very much, great job by all!!

Hi!

I had a great time in KW and the hotel suited my needs.  The only bad thing was I likely lost my mementos in my room (sigh).  It was only a pair of refrigerator magnets with something like “Key West” on it and I probably left it in my room or somewhere else.  Other than that, the hotel was very good…great starting point from which I can access to the attractions in KW…Thanks!

Organizing 8 girls for a bachelorette party can be trying at times, but the girls at Chelsea House were very friendly and accommodating every time I called with more questions.  They were easy to get a hold of and direct with what they can/can’t do (no false promises!).  We lucked out and had two rooms right across from the beautiful pool, where we spent all day Saturday.  There is a little bit of shade, if needed; and we kept our bevvies in plastic so everyone was happy.  We had so much fun and even though it’s probably too far for my parents to walk to the main area of Duval, it made for good exercise to/from for us.  We were very pleased with the rooms, pool, and location.  Would definitely recommend to friends.

We have stayed at all six of the Historic Key West Inns and have always had a pleasant experience. On this particular visit, the staff at The Chelsea House went out of their way to help us with a sticky situation we found ourselves in. Their kind, friendly and considerate attitude was very appreciated.

Nice hotel with a very nice staff.

A couple things that would make it great.. We stayed in room 30, two queen beds, myself and my adult daughter. A mirror in the bedroom would be so helpful, so when one person is in the bathroom the other person could get ready, put on makeup, do hair etc… A full length mirror would be awesome!

We only stayed in Key West for a night.  We ended up booking a room here because our trip was kind of last-minute and all the other hotels in the area were either already booked or too expensive.  Didn’t realize until after we arrived that this was because it’s Spring Break.  However, we were so delighted once we arrived that this inn was in a great location and was a good experience overall.

The staff member that checked us in (Betsy) was very friendly, even at 8:30PM when we checked in.  The location on Truman Ave is just a very short walk to Duval St.  Even my very pregnant wife was able to walk around everywhere.  Close enough to all the action and yet far away enough that the noise doesn’t reach the inn.  Slept really well.  Nice pool area where they served breakfast in the morning.  Plenty of places to sit in the shade or lounge in the sun.  Another nice perk is on-site parking.  They have 3 parking lots.

We stayed in the main building on the 2nd floor.  Since it’s an old building, there’s no elevator.  This was fine for me since I’m young and can lug our bags up the stairs.  This could be troublesome for older or weaker folks.  The shared wrap-around balcony from our room was nice, too.  There is Wifi on the property but my smartphone had strong signal so I didn’t use it.  I think Betsy said the signal is strongest in the lobby and by the pool.  I saw some folks lounging in the lobby during the evening just to use the Wifi.

Will very likely book this place again.

We enjoyed our stay. The location was convenient, yet quiet, given that the Inn sits on Truman. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Room amenities were adequate and cleanliness was not an issue. Parking was a bonus, but a little tight at times. Continental breakfast provided was adequate, but did not vary much over our three day stay. It’s been a while since I last visited Key West…and I feel the “old” Key West charm is absent on days when cruise ships are in port.
