We only stayed in Key West for a night.  We ended up booking a room here because our trip was kind of last-minute and all the other hotels in the area were either already booked or too expensive.  Didn’t realize until after we arrived that this was because it’s Spring Break.  However, we were so delighted once we arrived that this inn was in a great location and was a good experience overall.

The staff member that checked us in (Betsy) was very friendly, even at 8:30PM when we checked in.  The location on Truman Ave is just a very short walk to Duval St.  Even my very pregnant wife was able to walk around everywhere.  Close enough to all the action and yet far away enough that the noise doesn’t reach the inn.  Slept really well.  Nice pool area where they served breakfast in the morning.  Plenty of places to sit in the shade or lounge in the sun.  Another nice perk is on-site parking.  They have 3 parking lots.

We stayed in the main building on the 2nd floor.  Since it’s an old building, there’s no elevator.  This was fine for me since I’m young and can lug our bags up the stairs.  This could be troublesome for older or weaker folks.  The shared wrap-around balcony from our room was nice, too.  There is Wifi on the property but my smartphone had strong signal so I didn’t use it.  I think Betsy said the signal is strongest in the lobby and by the pool.  I saw some folks lounging in the lobby during the evening just to use the Wifi.

Will very likely book this place again.

We enjoyed our stay. The location was convenient, yet quiet, given that the Inn sits on Truman. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Room amenities were adequate and cleanliness was not an issue. Parking was a bonus, but a little tight at times. Continental breakfast provided was adequate, but did not vary much over our three day stay. It’s been a while since I last visited Key West…and I feel the “old” Key West charm is absent on days when cruise ships are in port.

We had one night at the Chelsea and we were pleased. The “Irish” welcome by Kevin was pleasant and fun.  The room was basic and the pool area inviting for an AM cup of coffee. Centrally located to all we wanted to do and experience.

This was my first visit to Key West.  I stayed at the Chelsea House.  I would recommend this inn  to everyone.  The rooms are comfortable and the staff was very helpful.  My husband was not able to make the trip so he called the Chelsea to ask their help to have flowers delivered to my room.  He said they were so very helpful and great to deal with.

I will be back.

Good Morning,

First of all, let me say that i had a wonderful time at the Chelsea House. There is just one negative point in my stay. I feel that the rooms are too close.  We are able to hear our neighbors, and vice a versa. There was a point that our neighbor knocked on our wall beacuse maybe the tv was too loud, or maybe we were. But it is an historic house which has charm. Besides that, the stay was very pleasant. The continental breakfast was great and fulfilling.

I have to stress the fact that, we stayed in a location where we are able to just leave our rental parked for the majority of trip, and just walk everywhere.

It really made us feel like true locals. Thank You.

We will see you next time.

Although we were only with you one night, we found your hotel to be delightful.  The staff was very helpful (calling ahead of time and during our stay).  The children enjoyed taking a dip in the pool after a long day of walking Key West.  The complimentary continental breakfast the next morning was great too.  It filled us all up until lunch.  The hotel was very close to Duval Street and all the sights of Key West.  On-sight parking was a definite plus.  We would definitely return again.

We spent 3 nights over the New Year at Chelsea House. Our reception was extremely efficient and welcoming for us and our German Shepherd who we decided to bring at the last moment. The property has 8 pet-friendly rooms so make sure they can accommodate your pet in advance. Our room was clean, comfortable and parking was convenient and included with our package. As noted in other reviews, we did not have a closet but there were hooks to hang clothing in the room. The pool area is nice and gardens are lush. The location is perfect for walking to all of the venues on and surrounding Duval Street. We enjoyed our stay very much and will definitely stay at Chelsea House again.

My partner and I had a great stay at The Chelsea House in Key West over the at the end of 2012. Bryan, the host greeted us on our arrival and although we had only spoken on the phone he was friendly, warm and very helpful. When we walked in the front door he seemed genuinely glad to see us and made us feel very welcomed. The guesthouse and ground were well maintained and the pool sparklingly clean. The clothing optional deck was private and comfortable. Our room was beautiful furnished, well maintained and spotless and the king size bed very comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and the property is lucky to have Bryan on hand to welcome the guest and keep things flowing in a professional but friendly way!!

Chelsea House is an ideal place for anyone to stay. It’s location is perfect to Duval street.

The pool was nice and warm for this time of the year and it was nice to be able to relax beside it in the evenings.

The room was nice and clean as was the bathroom and we had a deck out front to sit on in the evenings and watch people go by.

Reception staff were very helpful and friendly.

I would definitely recommend Chelsea House to friends and family.

Thanks to Aylenna and Betsy — their help made our stay in Key West so enjoyable!!  They were so helpful with information about where to eat, tour recommendations and just general information.

Our room was great — on the second floor we had a nice view of the pool, the roof tops and the beautiful trees and flowers on the property.  Our private porch was a great place to enjoy morning coffee.
