We stayed at the Chelsea House for 7 days February 2015. The place had such character, and a great location just far enough from Duval. With a short walk to all of the action or a short walk back to the peace and quiet of the pool, it was well worth it.

The staff was very pleasant from check in to  check out and the housekeeping staff was fabulous. The room was clean, and the towels and linens always neat and clean. The bed was super comfy too.

All visitors must remember that you are visiting a place with history and it has been around for over a century. As long as you are not expecting something brand new and pristine, you will be satisfied with its beautiful, quirky charm and character.

We stayed 4 nights at Chelsea House, 2 nights in a superior Queen room and 2 nights in a King room – while both rooms were great – the King room was larger and had a bigger shower. All the staff were excellent, housekeeping staff were very friendly and attentive. Rooms and grounds were clean and well maintained. Location was a few blocks to Duval Street, just a very short walk. We would also recommend renting a scooter during your stay – there was a scooter rental place 2 blocks from Chelsea House.

Went for a quick weekend getaway to Key West with no reservation anywhere – we thought we would just find a place when we got there.  We did not know that was the same weekend as the February marathon and there were zero available rooms in Old Town.  The nice lady (I forget her name, Julia? maybe) was SOOO nice.  She had a room for us for Sunday, and said she would call back later if something became available.  True to her promise, she DID call us back a few hours later.  We were fortunate to have found a room by then, but her kindness, understanding, friendliness and hospitality made us feel special, and that she truly cared about US, not about renting us a room.  I would recommend Historic Key West Inns to anyone considering a stay in the Keys – I know they will be my only call when I return one day.

After a long, and beautiful drive from Miami to Key West, my husband and I (and our little dog Chloe) were excited to check in to our room. My first pleasant impression was the very visible parking space designated for checking in. Our check in was smooth and fast. We had a junior suite on the first floor. Again we were pleasantly surprised when we saw our room. High ceilings make this room very spacious, and the space itself is very comfortable. We LOVED the private back area with a private porch, and a fenced in mulched space for our puppy. The kitchen had everything that we needed. A nice touch was the wine & champagne glasses chilling in the refrigerator. We met Frankie who was such a delight and cleaned the room beautifully. The entire staff is very warm, welcoming, and friendly. Rent a bike as soon as you check in, it is the best way to get around. And definitely check out the Sunset Pier at zero Duval street. The view is stunning and the Caipirinhas are the best. We would definitely stay here again!

We are so happy to have found this property for our stay in Key West.  As a remodeled historic house, it serves the “old town” well.  The location is perfect for walking Duval Street from end to end as well as exploring Whitehead Street, the Key West Cemetary, and other local sites.  We were especially thankful to have the help of Lyenna who not only make the check in/check out process go smoothly, she also gave us recommendations for eating, sightseeing, and patiently marked our areas of interest on the local map.

Our cozy room was located on the second floor, with access to the front porch.  What a great place for watching people and traffic, yet it was not noisy when we wished quiet.  All the necessary amenities were there.  Continental breakfast was served in a poolside manner with plenty of great hot coffee! Linda is a great hostess there!

We already have recommended this place to friends who wish to visit from Italy.  I hope they take us up on it!  We hope to return as well.

This was our fourth visit over a ten year period. Front of  building and the front desk room are very attractive. Pool area is well kept. Room was well lit, sheets and bedspread were clean, maintenance was prompt when needed. Beds remade promptly each morning. Staff is always very pleasant and very accommodating. Room was ready upon arrival. Breakfast fare,*8A-10A each morning, was very adequate. House location is very good; off the main street but close enough to easily walk to all interesting points of the city.

We needed a change of latitude and it was the perfect week for vacation.  We had one large snow storm in Massachusetts and got out on Superbowl Sunday before the next storm on Monday, 2/2.  From what we hear it snowed all week while we were enjoying our vacation.  Unfortunately we are now back home and most schools and businesses are closed due to another snow storm!

We do however want to thank you all at the Chelsea House for making our stay in Key West everything we expected.   Starting with our check in with Dennis at the Chelsea House he was very informative.  Free parking was great.  We didn’t move our car for the entire time we stayed.  Our room was fantastic.  The women (sorry I cannot remember their names) who oversaw the breakfast in the morning by the pool were so pleasant.  Had a wonderful conversation with them.  The office staff were great.  We had a rainy, rainy day on Thursday and the woman in the office was wonderful.  Thanks so much for the poncho!  We enjoyed the pool and lounge chairs on Friday for a couple of hours.   Love relaxing and soaking up the sun.   Commotion on the Ocean for our Sunset Cruise was wonderful as well as Hot Tin Roof Restaurant.  We hated to leave the following day but all good things must come to an end.  Goodbye sunshine.  See you again in the future!
