We were in Key West for a wedding this past weekend and stayed at the Chelsea House from 6/20/14 to 6/23/14.  The staff were pleasant and very accommodating.  The room was clean, a good size and the air-condition worked really well with no noise that would keep you awake all night.  Continental breakfast was all we needed to start our day and be out the door for another day in paradise.

We had a quiet King room for two nights. The hotel location is ideal, away from the crowds of Duval but just a short walk to anything that’s in Old Town. The room was clean, if a bit scuffed up and in need of some TLC – nothing major, just could have used paint touch ups, a good window cleaning and wood polish. Bed was comfortable and checking in and out was easy. Staff was friendly and the large parking lot was a plus. Would stay again, but maybe try the sister location, Key Lime Inn instead.

My husband and I stayed at the Chelsea House for 7 nights and enjoyed it very much! We were not on vacation but in transition between rentals and needed a place that accepted pets. The Chelsea House made us and our cat feel welcome and at home during a stressful week! We had a beautiful room with a large porch and rocking chairs, which was great for drinking coffee in the morning or sipping wine in the evening and watch people walk by on Truman Ave. Very entertaining! The location is great, just a few blocks from Duval Street and in walking distance to Mallory Square and some very good restaurants! We loved the fresh and healthy breakfast buffet served every morning by the pool, it had everything we needed and the coffee was outstanding! All the front desk staff was very personable and helpful, thank you! Will definitely stay there again and recommend to all our friends and family!

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.
