We found our room to be clean and comfortable and the area to be quite.  The staff was extremely helpful especially Bryan, the evening front desk manager.  He directed us to a great restaurant and guided us to the perfect sunset cruise.  With that being said, remember the Chelsea is a historic building and as such does show some slight age but that mostly makes it that more charming.

My friends and I had the pleasure of staying at The Chelsea House on Oct. 11th for two nights.  We stayed in the “Attic”, due to the fact there were three couples.  What a wonderful time we all had.

From the moment that I made the reservations to the time we checked out we experienced true southern hospitality.  The property was clean, the staff friendly and helpful, and not to mention the private patio, what a way to wake up in Key West, sitting out enjoying coffee and good friends on our own private patio watching the sunrise.

What a beautiful property!  We did visit the other sister properties that are in the Historic Key west Inns collection because I myself was curious and I was happy to see that all of the properties were well maintained and staffed with friendly, helpful employees.

I will highly recommend any of the six Historic Key West Inns that you have to offer to any of my clients, and I am sure that my friends will be recommending them as well.  They are truly situated in prime locations throughout Key West.

Only one complaint we all had, we just wished we could of stayed longer.  But, we will be back.

Thank you for the perfect getaway!!!

We had a wonderful stay at the Chelsea House. It’s so much nicer than staying at a big hotel chain. Quaint and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay at any of your properties when we return to Key West. Maybe add a hook or two for towels and bathing suits; would give guests the option to reuse towels and don’t throw out the shampoo and soap already being used. Thank you and we look forward to returning.

This was my second time to Key West this year and stayed both times at the Chelsea… it’s located 2 blocks from Duval St…. on Truman … just enough away from the very active Duval to be peaceful but close enough when I wanted to shop and see the sites….. the Hemingway House is very close and the Lighthouse …. anyway…. it’s not the Ritz but it’s well kept and cozy and clean. There’s a nice pool and employees were very nice and helpful…I’d stay there again…

Pat and I spent a wonderful, relaxing week with our two little dogs at the Chelsea House and Gardens.  The accommodations and staff were much more than we could have hoped for.  A very central location in Old Town, and near everything we came to see and do.

The room with a king bed, refrigerator, seating area, storage space and big TV were just like home – very comfortable and relaxing.  The Victorian architecture of the cottages and in the surrounding area was reminiscent of our favorite retreat in Western New York at the Chautauqua Institurion.

Of course, there was a wider variety of places to go and things to do in Old Town.  Every night a swim in the pool and a cigar on the cottage porch were the perfect ending to the day’s activities.

Our favorite place to eat was the pet friendly martini bar at Martin’s – a break from the loud music and excellent food and wait staff.

We really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, the people at the front desk are helpful and curteous.  The rooms are very nice and clean.  The pool is very nice and we really enjoyed the included breakfast.  Very relaxing.  We recommend it highly.

I reserved a room at the Chelsea House for my honeymoon, and both my wife and I were extremely impressed with our experience. The inn was lovely and well kept up, and our room was gorgeous (they even upgraded us for free from a Queen room to a King suite for our honeymoon!!).

The service was great as well. Our safe batteries died (it was an electronic key pad) and they came right over to unlock it for us and replace the batteries. It rained one day we were there, and they offered us an umbrella for the day. Room service was prompt, and the continental breakfast was satisfactory. The Chelsea House is located in a perfect spot – about a 5 minute walk from Duval St. and there’s a bike rental about 2 minutes away (bikes are the way to see Key West). There’s enough parking for the hotel customers at the Inn, and trust me, you will want to park you car and keep it there.

If you love dessert, visit Better Than Sex and try their chocolate grilled cheese. It’s decadent and delicious, and it’s different enough from other desserts that you won’t feel like you’re getting something you could get at any restaurant. Also try the Money Shot (coffee kahlua with home-made whipped cream) – it’s awesome.

Don’t take minors there, though!

Could not have been more pleased with our experience at the Chelsea House. Facilities were great. Staff was fantastic. Staff member Leyanne directed us to a great charter for snorkeling and kayaking. She was incredibly helpful an could not have been nicer. Will definitely stay there again and will recommend to our friends.
