Well we booked two rooms at the once glorious Chelsea hotel for July 4th weekend. Rather surprisingly there were two rooms available even at the last minute! We were thrilled. The rooms were comfortable but the whole hotel needs work. Seems like nothing has been done since it reopened... in 2008.Clearly the hotel lacks revenue. So, what should the hotel... More

I love this hotel and stay here often. Unfortunately lately the staff has been unpleasant. We dealt wth a woman named Dana who was extremely rude and condensending. As a customer I have never been treated that way. We had made a few requests during our booking and she did not honor any of them, even though rooms were available.... More

The room was clean and the view of the back roofs were so, so! All of the workers were very Friendly and Helpful! The Valet Parking is a must and a great service! The breakfast was Super with the outdoor dining! The only Negative was that we did not have any room service between the days of our stay! It... More

We stayed at The Chelsea because it was a smaller hotel, with a great location for us in Atlantic City. The hotel is a little tired,some peeling wallpaper in our room, hall floors not vacuumed everyday. But, the room was spacious, the view was just fine, it was right on the Boardwalk, and the restaurant was fine. Only problem for... More

Came here on a date and it didn't disappoint. Quite a swanky spot with a friendly and accommodating staff. They take pride in their spot and it shows. You have to get drinks on the 5th floor!!!! Great ambiance!!

Nice place to stay i like the 70's decor and no casinos . Everyone was very nice. Even the bellmen. If you are looking for a hotel with a bathtub this is not the plase for you! Over priced. The resturant on the 5th floor was empty. Not sure if the food is good. Takes entirely too long to refund... More

This hotel is gross. Dust on everything. Walk on the carpet and it is tacky and your feet stick to the floor. Poorly decorated and very slow front desk. If you are on a tight budget and under age 28...This might be ok. If you are older and cleanliness and decor are importaNt, RUN.

The hotel front faces an alley littered with drunks. The halls are dark, the doors are beat up, the carpets are matted, smell bad and are filthy throughout. Calling it "seedy" would be a compliment. This is 70's décor that is not retro- It is clearly the same property that it was some 40 years ago. Less expensive than the... More

We booked a night at The Chelsea using Hotels Tonight. What a disappointing experience. When we got to the counter, they could not find our reservation. After insisting we had a reservation, the front desk clerk called their central reservation system, who did find our reservation but we still needed to wait for the reservation to come over "their system"....

Chose The Chelsea because the price was reasonable for a one night stay in Atlantic City. They were under staff on a Friday night so there was a long line at the front desk to check in. The room that they gave us was right across the elevator so you can pretty much hear everything. The bed and pillows were... More
