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.

The staff was wonderful, the room was clean and the experience delightful. I tried to extend the stay a few days but there were no vacancies. Our 50 pound puppy also enjoyed the stay and was welcomed by the staff with doggie treats. We will go back.

I’m not a hotel person, I like the feeling of home that an inn provides. And the chelsea house made me feel right at home! I would, and have recommended it to anyone that will listen!!

I don’t have one favorite place to eat. all of the restaurants that we went to were great! whether it was Camilles for breakfast, the hard rock cafe for lunch, or even kelly’s for happy hour and wings, I can’t wait to go back and experience more of the seemingly endless array of place to go eat!!!

The suite room is absolutely beautiful, but with the suite room I was expecting a more valuable breakfast…

I loved the breakfast around the pool, the large room with big poster bed and walk in shower, the friendly people in the office, the great parking, and the smiles from all the people that work there!!
