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.

We had one night at the Chelsea and we were pleased. The “Irish” welcome by Kevin was pleasant and fun.  The room was basic and the pool area inviting for an AM cup of coffee. Centrally located to all we wanted to do and experience.

This was my first visit to Key West.  I stayed at the Chelsea House.  I would recommend this inn  to everyone.  The rooms are comfortable and the staff was very helpful.  My husband was not able to make the trip so he called the Chelsea to ask their help to have flowers delivered to my room.  He said they were so very helpful and great to deal with.

I will be back.

Good Morning,

First of all, let me say that i had a wonderful time at the Chelsea House. There is just one negative point in my stay. I feel that the rooms are too close.  We are able to hear our neighbors, and vice a versa. There was a point that our neighbor knocked on our wall beacuse maybe the tv was too loud, or maybe we were. But it is an historic house which has charm. Besides that, the stay was very pleasant. The continental breakfast was great and fulfilling.

I have to stress the fact that, we stayed in a location where we are able to just leave our rental parked for the majority of trip, and just walk everywhere.

It really made us feel like true locals. Thank You.

We will see you next time.
