We stayed at Chelsea House Hotel for three nights, and we absolutely loved it!
Our room was homey and clean, and the bed was very comfortable.
The pool/pool area was calm and relaxing, the breakfast was good and had everything we wanted, and the location was perfect; close to Duval Str, Southernmost point and Hemingway house.
The hotel is perfect if you want to get that genuine historic Key West feeling!
We would like to acknowledge the staff at the reception desk; Very service minded and courteous.

We will definitely recommend your hotel to friends planning to visit Key West!

Had a great 4day, 3night stay for our 15th anniversary. Clean, comfortable, relaxing, everything we wanted. Staff was very friendly and helpful, especially with parking as well as with recommending and booking a sunset cruise for us. (Thank you Jacob!). It was our first time in Key West, so we were out and about most of our time there.  We missed the Liming, but saw many guests there having a great time while we were passing through. Pool area was beautiful and inviting. The breakfast was perfect for us, with a good variety of staples as well as a few items that changed daily. Lovely sitting area overlooking the pool for the Liming and breakfast, and to go coffee cups so I could bring a coffee with me as we started our day were appreciated. We loved our stay and will both recommend Cypress House Hotel and return ourselves!

We stayed at the Merlin Guest House for 3 nights, as we were in town for a wedding. Starting from check-in, our whole stay went smoothe and everybody was friendly. The rooms were nice and clean. We had a queen room. The room was on the small side. There was a bed, chair, small bench, dresser, tv, and that’s about it…basically everything you need to sleep and be comfortable. However, we did miss it not having a fridge. It was 85+ degrees and humid everyday we were there, and we had no way to keep beverages cold besides filling up our small ice bucket and storing a couple of water bottles at a time there. Breakfast was simple with the same thing every morning which was fine for us…local bagels & croissants, muffins, cereal, yogurt, juice and coffee (no hot entrees). Pool was small and we did not use. With all being said, it was a GREAT location within walking distance to Duval and we would stay again!

We enjoyed our stay at the Chelsea House Hotel for numerous reasons, but the main one that made our stay exceptional was because of the young girl named Kate Niezbeckn. We were to stay upstairs on the third floor but she could tell it would be hard for us to climb the stairs and carry our luggage.  She spent extra time with calls to the management to see if she could get us a room on the ground floor. We loved that small room. We needed two extra towels and she went out of her way to bring them to us.  Breakfast the next morning was great but my wife left her purse in a chair by the pool. She did not miss it because we were getting ready to leave. A nice lady that worked there ( do not know her name ) turned it in to the office. She recognized us and said she had taken the purse to Kate up front. We picked up the purse !!!!  These are good people and Kate is a precious person and a great employee.  Thank you !

Several weeks ago we came down and stayed at Lighthouse Court (our favorite) and stayed for three days. As usual, the room was spotless and the staff was very,very nice, including the young lady that worked the front counter…We had brought a plant down for one of your locals that I had grown from seed and asked her if she could”Keep an eye on it” until my friend picked it up…She not only kept an eye on it but she brought it inside at night and when my friend picked it up…called me to tell us he had come….She was the best!  We will see you again soon!

P.S. When ever someone asks us where we stay we tell them Lighthouse Court Hotel.

We stayed at the Merlin Guest House March 2016 and enjoyed the stay so much that we returned in September 2016.  We couldn’t have asked for a cleaner, friendlier and more convenient location for our stay.  From the time you arrive with a greeting from the staff to the time you MUST leave, everything at the Merlin Guest House is exceptional.  We enjoyed the continental breakfast each morning and appreciated the refreshing iced tea that was out all afternoon while we relaxed in the pool.  The rooms were very clean and the service staff was always smiling and taking care of anything that you needed.

Don’t hesitate to stay at the Merlin Guest House, you won’t be disappointed.

This was our 4th time staying at the Chelsea House Hotel and we were impressed yet again. From the initial greeting at check in to the final day of our stay, we were treated well by each member of your team.

At our request we were given the same room we have stayed in during years past and we were  pleasantly surprised at the renovations that had taken place in the bathroom area. The update was beautifully done and the room as usual was kept clean during our stay.

Each team member in very courteous and willing to accommodate all our requests, especially the woman who maintained our room and has been at the Chelsea for the past 4 years we have stayed there.

We are constantly recommending the Key West area to friends, especially the Chelsea House based on the friendly and exceptional service we have received during our stays.

The morning breakfasts are always well stocked and fresh with a very wide variety of choices for everyone.

The only change this year was the additional parking fee and it was our suggestion that perhaps past guests could have this fee waived as a part of a loyalty program.

We are looking forward to our next visit at the Chelsea House Hotel.

WE STAYED AT THE MERLIN GUEST HOUSE. IT WAS REALLY NICE AND LESS MONEY THAN A LOT OF THE OTHER PLACES I CHECKED. THE ROOM WAS LARGE AND CLEAN. THE STAFF WAS NICE. I WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN.

Really enjoyed our stay at Merlin Guest House. It is close to everything we wanted to see, just take off walking. The place is a hidden gem. Such a nice tropical garden area to sit, relax, eat breakfast or swim in the pool. Our room was on the street side but noise was not a problem. The room was very clean and inviting. Breakfast was great with coffee,tea, juice, breads, fruit, hard boiled eggs. Very relaxing. Would definitely stay there again.

My girlfriend and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Chelsea House. Our room (20 I believe) was spacious, clean, and had a nice new bathroom. Our little patio was very quaint and felt private although it was near the stairs. The pool was fun, I swam one day while she worked under the gazebo. The staff was incredibly pleasant and welcoming. The lady working the front desk, Lyenna, was incredibly accommodating and sweet. Even the housekeepers were very kind, each time we saw them they greeted us with a bright smile. We would absolutely love to return to the Chelsea House Hotel to stay, it truly made our Key West experience that much better. I am so happy to have chosen this hotel as opposed to a chain hotel.
