Great location.  Easy bike ride or walk to get to any of the attractions and restaurants.  You don’t want to hassle with a car.  The staff is super friendly and helpful.  Check in/out is a breeze.  The courtyard is a great place to relax in the shade for breakfast or an ice tea in the afternoon.  We were in a king suite which was spacious, spotless, and quiet.  There are so many great restaurants that you would have to be down there for months to try all of them.  Be sure to try the “Better than Sex” dessert restaurant.  Decadent and delish.  Make sure you get a reservation.

We recently stayed at the Merlin Guesthouse.  We have been guests there several times since moving to S. Florida fifteen years ago.  My mother was also a frequent visitor to the property.  The Merlin never disappoints.  A friendly staff, tasty continental breakfast, updated rooms, pool, and a terrific location (in the heart of downtown) all make for an enjoyable vacation in Old Key West.  We always book one of the cottages since it provides ample room for three or four people.  I never hesitate to recommend the property to friends (one will be a guest for several days later this month) since I know they will be pleased with the accommodations and location.  I highly recommend staying at the Merlin Guesthouse when visiting Key West.

The Hotel has a very nice roof terrace which we enjoyed very much. The whole building looks as if it comes from another time, very south american. Also the breakfast area beside the pool was lovely. The rooms are big with everything you need. We would recommend the Albury Court any time!

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful 3 night stay at the Key Lime Inn. The entire property had a very welcoming and relaxed feeling.  Our room was large, comfortable, and clean. We enjoyed the outdoor amenities to include the tree swing and pool. Breakfast by the pool was a nice touch. We loved how the inn was within easy walking distance to all the popular sites. Evening walks down Duval Street are always entertaining. Out favorite restaurant was Better Than Sex which has amazing desserts and is located on Truman Ave within easy walking distance.

The staff was very friendly and we got all we needed. The room was clean, but the bed a little bit too small. But I love this hotel, because it’s different from others. It’s like a little family, like an oasis. I’d recommend it to my friends. Thank you!

My wife and I had a fantastic time at the Key Lime Inn.  I would definitely suggest it to anyone going to Key West.  Pool was great, breakfast sufficient, and room was large.

The only suggestions that I have is the safe was too small to put anything in.  It may be time to update.  Also there are not enough hooks in the bathroom for towels but there is ton’s of space.  Very inexpensive fix and would be helpful.

We would stay again.

Our stay at the Chelsea House was beyond compare. From the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out, everyone involved with the hotel was so good to us. I’m not listing names because it truly was everyone. Every question was answered both respectfully and honestly. The room was also very clean and enjoyable. And the breakfast outside was so very pleasing. It was our first trip to Key West and Chelsea House helped to make it memorable. We will definitely recommend it to our family and friends! Thank you for everything!

The location was great and we walked everywhere, from the Southernmost Point up to Mallory Square.  Although the room was small and there wasn’t much surface space in the bathroom, it was cosy and clean plus it was nice to have a little private patio with chairs.  It would have been a plus to have a fridge in our type of room but we made do with getting ice from the machine.  We only stayed one night (wish it was longer) but all the staff we spoke to were friendly and helpful.  The breakfast was plentiful but had too much unhealthy sugary items in my opinion.  It was nice sitting by the pool in the morning.  We really enjoyed our stay and am glad we chose lovely Key Lime Inn instead of a chain hotel.

Greetings to All;

Thank you so much for the opportunity to write a review on our stay at the Chelsea House.  We stayed with you from March 22nd – 28th of this year and arranged our wedding through you as well !

We cannot say enough good things about our stay there.  We both loved Key West and will return and are even looking for some magical way we can live there in  our retirement, but also so enamored with your hotel as well.

The reservation process was excellent – personal, professional and even flexible as we moved our initial reservation from the Merlin to Chelsea.  When we arrived, the check in process was fast and efficient as all the paperwork was already there and waiting for us.  The check out process was equally smooth, professional and friendly.  Your administrative staff in the main office are excellent and helpful even when I was looking for 4 clean champagne flutes to take with us to get married!

Our room was 33a which we LOVED.  It was immaculate, spacious and well laid out.  We had ample storage and hangers which is a rarity.  Your in-room toiletries were lovely as well, and I’m really picky about that.  Our only small suggestions would be – and they are specific to this room – is that the bedside window faces the front of the property with the motion detector light and it goes off constantly all night which brings a significant amount of glaring light into the room. I know the shutters are better looking but the black out drapes work much better…. and secondly (and it is a small thing) it would make a lot more sense to move the towel hook away from the light switch and move them across from the shower, to the left side of the door.  I was always fumbling behind a towel to turn on the light!  Finally, I think a hand towel holder by the sink would be great, we had to keep ours folded ON the sink.

Beyond that, we just loved the hotel which reminded us both so much of “The Fantastic Marigold Hotel”.  A funny collection of people from all round, meeting at the pool or for breakfast and chatting in this little oasis just steps from Duval St.

Some staff really stood out – Frankie who looked after us and our room, she is just so delightful.  Barbara who seemed to look after the cleaning staff and breakfast was charming and warm and wonderful as well.  Mary Simmons who organized and officiated our wedding was superb as well, she really made it a great day for us.

I would so much recommend your hotel to anyone – for all the things I’ve mentioned above but also your amazing location and parking which is a true rarity in Key West.  In terms of excellent restaurants and bars, why yes, we’ve got some ones that we give 4 stars too:

Bars:  Green Parrot, Capt. Tony’s.

Restaurants: The Café (we’re vegetarians); La Trattoria (old Key West) had great service and great Italian food; Blue Heaven had the most amazing location and the best vegetarian meal I’ve ever had.

I hope this review is useful to you and that it makes you even more proud of your hotel !

Many thanks again,

Kelly Stalker & Howard Chisvin
