We stayed at Chelsea House for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We had a very positive experience. Although we arrived a little early, we were quickly checked in. That was very much appreciated since we walked from the pier to the hotel.

Everyone was very pleasant, and we will definitely come back to Chelsea House when we visit Key West in the future.

We were pleasantly greeted by the receptionist and treated to an upgraded room. Room # 25 was just what we needed. Roomy, clean, clean clean.  Bed was very comfortable room was large enough and quiet at night. Our linens were clean and crisp.  Breakfast was pleasant outside on the pool patio and plenty to choose from.  More of a continental breakfast which is good for early morning getaways.  Convienent walking  distance to Duval Street and all restaurants, shops and museums.  We parked our car and never drove it again until we left Key West.

Kayak and snorkeling reservations were made and travel to meeting areas were clearly defined. By the way Clearly Unique Charters for clear kayaks is he only way to go!   They are an awesome company…….one thing I needed at the  Inn was a changing room after the Kayak trip.  We checked out before the trip and didn’t have a place to change.  But the receptionist advised me to go next store to the lobby bathroom at the Key Lime Inn, no problems. Done.

I am sorry I didn’t write the receptionists names down but all three were awesome, courteous, professional and a pleasure to talk to.  Oh, and a restaurant nearby that is sooooooo good is Santigo bodaga. Reservations are absolutely needed for dinner.  Tapas still small plates to be shared with another.   All in all we couldn’t have picked a better hotel to stay in KW. Absolutely recommend. We will return.

I only had one night to stay, but I can say that it was perfect! Everyone I encountered, from workers to the visiting guests, were friendly and positive. The breakfast served was delicious, they had what seemed to be a homemade blueberry muffin that I wished I had doubles of ! Check out was just as easy as check in, ample parking, great service! I have already recommended The Chelsea House to my friends and family and will be staying here again on my next trip down!

Thanks again!

Visited Key West with my girlfriend a couple years ago and stayed at the Chelsea House.  When we had a free weekend this year we chose Chelsea House again. It is in a great location, we like the feel of an old house. Parking is important, it’s quiet. Rooms are quaint and nice. We had a wonderful trip and a wonderful stay.

Both trips we have spent some time hanging out in the common areas and had great times.

First time in Key West and so glad my boyfriend and I chose The Chelsea House.  Close to everything, but nice and quiet to return to at the end of the day. Room was tended to quickly every day.  Staff was friendly and as attentive as you needed them to be. The pool was crystal clear and just the right temperature to be refreshing with plenty of shade, and it was never crowded.  I would like to see more savory selections at breakfast such as oatmeal, granola, and Greek yogurt rather than the sweet options that were offered.  I would definitely stay again, though I am intrigued to try one of their other properties, too!

Our stay in your hotel was fantastic. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Perhaps there is not enough tables, chairs and parasols for the guests at breakfast. See you next time!!

My husband and I stayed at the Chelsea House this weekend and we were very happy. The staff was beyond nice and even went out of their way to help us book a fishing charter.

The room was great, very clean and comfortable. Location was perfect and the parking on the property was very convenient as most places do not have that option. We loved the pool and the water was very refreshing.

The location was perfect as it was within walking distance to Duval Street. This is definitely the place to stay when you visit key west!!!

We have been regulars at Chelsea House for over 15 years & each time we walk through the doors there is a sense of coming home. Lyann is beyond enthusiastic & friendly. She went out of her way to meet our needs, even rescuing us with an umbrella & calling the Ferry (on her own) to be sure we had the correct departure times.  Brian gave excellent dinner & activity suggestions & fun was had by our entire group.

One suggestion- please add  an additional mirror (lengthwise is perfect ) on the wall or back of door so more than 1 person can get ready at a time.  With 4 ladies in a  large room it would definitely help :)

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Chelsea House over the July fourth week. It was adorable, clean and centrally located. It is exactly as pictured. The staff was super helpful and readily available. We had a balcony and found it very enjoyable. It had accessible parking and was in a great location. The only drawback was the continental breakfast. We had planned on eating breakfast there every morning, but elected to spend money and go else where. I have already recommended it to friends and would come back again myself.
