We loved this cute boutique hotel. As a millennial, I love a modern design and the aesthetic was after my heart! You walk down the plant-filled walkways to what feels like your own little resort. Right outside our queen bedroom was a cornhole area, the perfect place to begin the afternoon or end the evening. The modern and updated feel for this historic inn was exactly what we were looking for in Key West. We will stay again. It was close to Duval without the noise and right across from the Hemingway House. We brought beach bicycles and locked them up outside our room each night and used them as our transportation around the island our entire stay. The perfect location and the perfect stay! Will recommend to friends and family.

We’ve stayed at the Cypress House many times and have always adored it, but the Chelsea House has officially become our favorite spot in Key West. We just returned from our third stay, I’ve brought my mom down before, and we have sent so many friends there. It’s private and feels luxurious but not at all pretentious. It’s the perfect place to relax in peace and escape the craziness of Duval, while being a short walk from it all. Rooms are gorgeous and modern, staff is insanely friendly and helpful, and somehow it’s the most cost-friendly place we know of. We will be back many many many times!

Could not have been any better. From the time we arrived early until we had to leave the staff was on top of everything. Bikes arrived before we even finished checking in. Snorkel and sunset cruises were booked and luggage stowed until the room was ready. Room was top notch and staff met all our needs.

We stayed 4 nights in Unit number 12. It was on the second floor and we shared a balcony with another room. We sat there and enjoyed our wonderful coffee each morning and listened to the church bells and watched the birds and the iguanas. The bed was comfy and the room was clean and pleasant. We liked having a small safe in the room so we could leave cash and wander the streets. It’s convenient to everything. The staff is welcoming and extremely helpful. We’d stay there again. It was a great getaway.

My daughter and I stayed at Chelsea House for the weekend. I chose the hotel specifically because of its location–all of historic Key West is within easy walking distance. The room was beautiful–in the back of the hotel overlooking the pool area. It was quiet, well maintained, comfortable and lovely. When I booked, I didn’t realize that a complimentary breakfast was included–a nice bonus! The staff was friendly, helpful and courteous.  I highly recommend the Chelsea House, both as a great value and as a wonderful experience

Stayed for one night. Great room, clean and modern. Private cottage feel although we shared a wall with another room. Loved the community feel in the cottages with common pool, breakfast and sitting areas. Would definitely stay again.

What a lovely, quiet place.  We enjoyed sitting on the front porch of our room (31).  The grounds are what drew us to choose Chelsea House Hotel.  We sat at the pool and read our books to enjoy the fresh air and warm temps. A couple of things would have made our stay better; coffee available by the pool 24/7 and shade in the sitting areas that had the comfortable seats.  We would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I chose this hotel for our honeymoon, and wow did it deliver! We probably had one of the best hotel stays we’ve ever experienced. We wanted to stay close to Duval but far enough away from the noise that we could sleep. The Merlin Guest House was a great choice for us. We stayed in Deluxe King Suite #22 and it was beautiful, spacious and relaxing. I do wish there were more hangers in the closet since we did stay a week but we made do. Everyone at the front desk was most helpful, especially when I called to let them know we were arriving far later than anticipated due to flight delays. I was concerned the room would be given away but was assured that would not be the case and was walked through how to get into our room upon arrival and who to call if we encountered any issues. By the time we arrived the front desk clerk had not quite left and she helped us find our room (it was dark, what can I say!) I was able to go down the next morning and finish checking in — what a breeze! The rest of our stay was absolutely amazing, from breakfast by the pool to housekeeping. I was hesitant at first of staying in a “hotel” for our honeymoon and having to be up and at ’em early so housekeeping could clean but that was definitely not the case here, they are more than accommodating! The front desk even kept our luggage after we checked out until we headed for the airport. We will definitely be back!

This was a surprise 50th birthday party for Angela. We booked 4 separate rooms for 8 adults. We have been coming down to Key West since 98. This was the first time we stayed here. Dennis checked us in and he was extremely friendly and very informative. We also talked with Scott and Jacob and both were very informative and friendly. The cleaning staff was top notch! Our rooms were always clean and they went out of their way for us. I have told many friends, family and co-workers about your hotel. Thank you for allowing us to stay with you and for the hospitality. We will defiantly be back to Key West. While in Key West we did the jet sky tour, which was fabulous. We visited Pepes, Blue Heaven both for breakfast. You can never go wrong with Hogs Breath, Half Shell Raw Bar and Island Dog. Of course you need to stop at Kermits for Key Lime pie! There are just so many great places that you need to keep coming back to do them all. We hope to see you again soon!

We drove into Key West on a whim, and came upon a The Key Lime Inn. My wife and I were fortunate to be able to book the last available cottage (#2). It was absolutely beautiful and located in a great location. We were able to walk to everything, but also far enough away for peace and quiet. The staff their were awesome, and also made it possible for us to extend our stay without having to relocate. We definitely found our place for our next Key West Visit!!
