It was a late Saturday night, or one can say a very early Sunday morning. I had been on the ipad for the better of four hours trying to find a place for Monday, see it was my two year anniversary and I promised that I would find a place to stay in key west, since I’ve never been. Of course like the typical male that I am, stalled till basically the day before to book a room, from pictures on whatever website, i knew that she wasn’t going to be happy, but I was on a budget, and tired.

When we arrived at the hotel desk we were met by an awesome guy with a Irish or Scottish accent (never been good with distinguishing accents) who informed us on not just hotel policies but things to do on the island in a professional yet friendly way. After the advice on our journey we headed to the room. THE ROOM was completely different then what I saw in pictures online! Wooden floors with dark wood stands and a hint of modern thrown in. For the price and the little two minute walk to duval, its completely worth it. The room isn’t huge but for sure won’t make you feel cramped, it’s welcoming and cozy.

There was a free breakfast that consisted of light food (I don’t think I would have made it walking around on eggs, bacon and coffee with the heat) which helped with getting the day started and getting rid of hang overs.  We were told by a staff member to eat at sunset piers in Mallory square during sunset and After, a little dancing at sloppy joes and we were not disappointed. My girlfriend, being the hard headed control freak she is, had actually called after I booked worrying about the room and was reassured that they were remodeled and looked nothing at all like the outdated pictures she saw online. Always go to the hotels website for the right room pictures. Lol. My mother loved the pics I sent her of the Chelsea and is going to stay there in December for a couple of days. The Chelsea will be our go to when heading down to key west because of the memories and laughs we had here.

We arrived on Thursday 8/7/14 at Chelsea House for the weekend and received a warm and friendly welcome from the staff who was professional, courteous and knowledgeable about the town, activities, restaurants and interesting places to visit. Our suite was pleasant, inviting, clean, comfortable and added to the expected refrigerator and microwave, we were gladly surprised to discover an oven, kitchen utensils, a little dining room table with 2 chairs, a leather sofa and table, and a nice balcony facing the street. The air-conditioning unit and the two ceiling fans worked perfectly. The expected parking lot was very convenient.

The hotel was quiet at night, the continental breakfast was appropriate; we especially appreciated the croissants, boiled eggs and yogurts. All in all, it was a wonderful experience worth to be repeated.  For some constructive criticisms, we offer the following: 1) a full-size mirror should be added to the room, 2) the breakfast could offer different fruits, different baked goods, 3) an iron and iron table should be included in each room- it didn’t make sense to us that we had to physically go to the front desk to pick them up, additionally a full-size iron table should be available since the small iron-table easily hurts one’s lower back while ironing…just some little comments. Finally, we would like to congratulate the staff and the manager of the hotel and promise ourselves that we will certainly come back.

We always stay at the Chelsea House when we’re in Key West.  We’ve tried other places, but always end up back at the Chelsea.  The staff is incredibly nice & accommodating.  The walk to Duval is 5 minutes away.  The grounds & pool are so relaxing that you don’t want to leave.  Already looking forward to our next visit!

My friend and I planned a last minute trip to Key West. We are both in college so to say we were on a budget would be an understatement. After looking for hours at different places and reviews we decided to stay at the Chelsea House. We couldn’t have been more pleased. The room was clean, the location was perfect and best of all for us it was economical. The breakfast was also a pleasant surprise in the morning, plenty of choices.

I would highly recommend the Chelsea House to anyone traveling to KW. I am already looking into planning a return trip.

Thank you so much for such a great stay.  From the minute we walked in the door, the front desk staff were very polite and inviting.  Once we entered our room, i was pleasently surprised at how up to date and inviting our room was.  Our room was very quiet as well.  The side balcony from our room was awesome.  Even when we left our sign up for privacy, they still left fresh towels outside of the room.  I have only been back since yesterday and have sent your site to quite a few people who have inquired about our stay.  Thank you again for such a nice room.

We stayed at the Chelsea in August 2014. Very nice visit. The staff were friendly and the room was very clean.  We were fortunate to have a good air conditioner in the room, and it was nice to have the pool nearby.  It was good to be near Duval Street (where all the night life in Key West is), but far enough away we could get a peaceful night’s rest.  I would recommend the Chelsea House hotel. It was a highlight of our trip.

I enjoyed my visit in the Chelsea House hotel. We were friendly welcome. The room was clean and pretty. The ceiling fan was very well appreciated. The breakfast was good and it was nice to take it near to the swimming pool. The location close to the town center is good for visiting and doing shopping by foot. We would appreciate a bar open on the evening to take drink close to the swimming pool.

Staff was very helpful and thoughtful.  Breakfast at poolside was beautiful.  Location for key west was excellent.   Only improvement I would make would be to have some additional chairs and a small table or dresser in the room.

Traveling with an 8 month old is not the easiest, but staying at the Chelsea House Pool & Gardens made it a comfortable get away. The room was spacious enough for our little one to explore and sleep comfortably in the pack-n-play. The staff was extremely helpful from check-in to check-out. Every time we called the front desk for a request they responded immediately. The pool was a great place to cool off after a long day of exploring. We ate at a variety of restaurants (Louie’s Backyard, Firefly, Pepe’s & El Siboney to name a few) as well as drank (Hog’s Breath & all of the Duval bars). We would definitely stay at the Chelsea House Pool & Gardens again!
