Our visits to Key West are always so relaxing thanks to the comfy, private and old-town feeling of Chelsea House Pool & Gardens. The rooms are immaculate and the staff is welcoming. I love just sitting at the pool on warm afternoons chatting with guests from across the globe. Thank you Julie Fondreist for your hospitality.

My husband and I spent three nights at Chelsea House.  The location was ideal, within easy walking distance of all the attractions. Parking was ample, but uncovered. The front office staff was very helpful and professional.  The room was beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. There was no closet, but hangars and hooks were provided for tops and dresses. The pool and gardens were beautiful.  The housekeeping staff did an excellent job.  This is an historic inn, so be prepared to climb and descend narrow stairs.  These weren’t a problem, unless you have limited mobility and a second floor room. Breakfast was the low point.  It was served by the pool and seating was limited, especially if there was rain. The coffee was excellent, but there should have been more selections for breakfast items.  All the cereals offered were heavily sweetened, and there was a limited choice of fresh fruit. Fresh locally made pastries were good. Our two favorite restaurants, both located on Duval Street were La Trattoria and Antonia’s.  We would recommend the hotel for anyone visiting Key West.

Hi,

My husband an I stayed at the Chelsea House 6/3-6/7 2014. absolutely wonderful, clean room, the continental breakfast was perfect for a quick “something’ before heading off to whatever we had planned. We live in port charlotte, fl. an we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, we have been to key west several times, and just stayed in regular motel/hotels.

I searched & searched for the perfect place, I wanted to see and stay in a historic inn, he left all the planning to me! We stayed in the “royal room” unbelievable- so pretty made me never want, to leave the staff so friendly, the pool was perfect, i love old historical buildings an found out we were actually sleeping in the old dining room, so looking forward to coming back again.

I will never search on the internet again. I have your card in my file an tossed all the others, walking distance was perfect- I wanted a place to park our car for fear of having to drive, we only drove to the a&b lobster house and eat it raw bar.  We cant wait to come back !  I have told everyone i know about  the historic key west inns but when we come back again room # 19 is all ours! Thank you again for making my 25th anniversary one that we will never forget.

Sincerely,

The Sniffen’s, tom an donna

I booked and paid for 3 separate rooms at the Chelsea House for myself and my Daughter, Grandbaby and two Sisters and their Daughters as our yearly Sisters reunion. The stay was great. The rooms were accommodating to all of our needs, especially mine (the Jr. suite with the baby in tow). The beds were very comfortable. The rooms were clean and well appointed.

The Sisters truly enjoyed their stay and I personally look forward to a return stay in the future!

Brian checked us in upon our arrival and I give him an A+ for personality and professionalism. I am recently a retiree from AAA after 35 years of customer service and can tell you without hesitation you have a star on your hands.

Thank you for a memorable stay.

Let me start by saying “Thanks” for the hospitality and warmth.  Betsy at the front desk was very friendly, courteous, responsive and accomodating to our needs.   She just made us feel “at home” when we first came in.  The check-in was a breeze.

We stayed at Room 8.  It was the best room as we had our own balcony on the third floor.  The room was clean, cozy and inviting.  The bed was very comfortable.  We slept so good the entire vacation.

We enjoyed our second year anniversary.  We’re glad to have Chelsea be a part of our celebration.  We would definitely come back and request for Room 8.

The check-out process was very easy.  Lyanna was prompt to help us.

I would definitely recommend to my friends and family the Chelsea House.

See you soon Chelsea House.

This was my first visit to Key West and the Chelsea House did not disappoint. The nice woman that checked us in assisted use with selecting & booking our dinner cruise for that night.  Check-in was quick and the room was nicely decorated and clean.  The bed was the best, I hadn’t slept that well in a long time.  Housekeeping happily provided additional towels and toiletries upon request.  The grounds were well maintained and the pool was always kept clean. There is a comfy sitting area outside near the pool that we enjoyed every night after returning from Duval Street. You can’t beat the location, about 2 blocks from Duval, and the free parking is a huge plus as we parked our car and didn’t move it until we checked-out.  We rented bikes to tour the area and there was ample space to park bikes and scooters at the Chelsea House.  We ate dinner one night at the Crab Shack and it was the best Mahi-Mahi I have ever eaten and the drinks were big and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend the Chelsea House to everyone going to Key West. I am writing this review at work and I have already recommended the Chelsea House to a co-worker that frequently visits Marathon and the Keys.

This was a very delightful staY. Me and my girlfriend came down for our two year anniversary and loved it. The location was perfect and you could walk everywhere. The rooms were very clean, but a little small, however unless you plan on staying in your room 24/7 it won’t matter. Overall, everything was awesome.

Overall, my wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Chelsea House.  It was our first time in Key West and the Chelsea House lived up to our expectations of historic charm meets tropical oasis.  The staff was friendly and we enjoyed the breakfast that was served in the pool area each morning.  Check in/out went smoothly with the folks in the front office offering to hold our baggage before and after check out, so we could explore the town some more. The Chelsea House was in walking distance to all of the great restaurants, art galleries and shops that we enjoyed.  If I had any complaints, they would be minor:  the shower water pressure was just a trickle and could not be increased and one of the posts on our bed was broken. But, all in all, we had a great vacation.  Thank you.

We stayed at Chelsea House two nights and absolutely loved it.  The Inn has great character, the staff was extremely nice and helpful with information about Key West and things to do and we were convenient to Duval Street and all the old town sights.  We originally planned to stay only one night but quickly decided to stay two nights and forego seeing Miami so we could spend more time in old town.
