We visit Key West annually for a good friend’s birthday retreat, and usually everyone arrives and stays at the same hotel. This year, my girlfriend and myself decided to go a day early for some time to ourselves to enjoy the area and all it has to offer. I chose Chelsea House as our destination based on it’s vicinity to the activities we were looking for, and for the pool/deck and charming history the house portrays. When we arrived, the room was not quite ready for us (we got there a bit earlier than normal check-in) and the staff was delighted to see us. The young lady at the front desk was inviting and was more than happy to issue our parking pass and pool access while we waited for our room to be ready. Needless to say, it was a smooth transition from our 7 hour drive to the lovely pool and garden area. The pool has a great deck area, and is surrounded by beautiful trees (the most notable was the large palm overhanging the pool itself, awesome). Our room was ready right at 3pm, and we were delighted by the charm our ‘Butterfly Room’ shows. Lovely 4 post bed and beautiful flooring, small bathroom, closet, flatscreen and mini fridge. The house is old, so it comes with the amenities expected when staying in a ‘charming’ house. Most notably the small shower and lack of water pressure, but this is key west and we don’t need a pressure washer for a shower. The room had sufficient towels and pillows, and a comfortable bed- the only reason I submit a 4-star rating rather than a 5 was some small cleanliness issues. Nothing grotesque, mind you, just small subtle things I notice because I notice small subtle things. Overall the area is nice, right on the main road and easy access to Duval and all the shops. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family who love the classics, and am personally excited to check out some of the other properties Historic Key West Inns offers.

We both enjoyed our time in Key West and especially the convenient location of the Chelsea House and the relaxing atmosphere there.

Wife & I arrived in Key West a day early and made a last minute reservation for Chelsea House as we were about 12 miles from Key West.  The reservationist gave us a $50 discount and thanked us for choosing this property, a win-win in my opinion.  The room was small but clean and quaint, just what we needed.  The courtyard/pool area is very pleasant and has a covered patio with tables.  Continental breakfast was usual fare and it was nice to be able to sit beside pool while eating.  Overall a very nice property with pleasant staff and would definitely stay here again.

I had never been to Key West before, so I appreciated the easy drive from the airport to Chelsea House, as well as, the walkable location to Duval Street and the sights. The pool is wonderful in the morning (with palm trees overhead!), and the breakfast is perfect. The staff are friendly and professional, and as I said, the location is ideal. I’ll be back for sure.

I loved it.  We only had one night but it was perfect!  The room was beautiful. The bed was super comfy.  I loved the big porches and the garden.  The bath was a little small but still nice, I wish we didn’t have to leave so early in the morning so we could sample the breakfast, we heard it was amazing!  Thanks for the great stay!

This hotel has a great location just two blocks from Duval, friendly and helpful reception staff, lovely pool in lush setting, and is quiet despite being so close to the action in Key West.  I stayed with my mother and sister for Mother’s Day in a room with two queen beds on the first floor.  The Inn is charming – additions have been made to the original houses that comprise the Chelsea, but they have been done tastefully. The room and bath were spacious and well-equipped – towels were provided for pool use.  The breakfast was continental and plentiful with fresh croissants made locally.  Onsite parking is a real plus.  Would stay here again.

What a wonderful place. Check-in was easy as well as check-out plus on site parking. Clean and cute. Better than a run of the mill hotel/motel chain. Wish we could have stayed longer but was just passing through. Walking distance to all the tourist things duval street, southern most point etc.

Thanks, Chelsea House, for a great, memorable, and convenient stay.
