Great Choice

We went to Key West to get married. And the hotel was perfect for that occasion. The complementary breakfast really comes in handy, considering the overpriced restaurants on the island, plus it has great variaty. We loved our room, it was really spacious, we even were able to keep our rented bikes in the room overnite. The location is perfect, close enough to everything and yet quiet, what you probably won't get if you stay on the main street. For our occasion it was perfect and I highly recommend it.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

When in Key West, I highly recommend renting bikes. It's cheap, you don't have to deal with traffic, finding parkin spots or refuelling. And you can go anywhere in the island in minutes.

Key West getaway

This was our first time to Key West. We only stayed for one night but had a lot of fun. The Chelsea house was an amazing place to stay. Very warm and comfortable. I love those old Victorian houses. They are beautiful.

Very accomidating staff

The hotel is clean, beautiful, at a great location, nice continental breakfast, they were very nice about our little dog and stated they are not just pet tolerant but pet friendly, staff at front desk and maintainence were more than accomidating. Small pool was just right , beds comfortable, safe didn't quite work and remote suddenly stopped working but they fixed it right away, can not say enough about this historic inn property.

Look for restaurants north and south of Duval rather than on Duval west.
