We found The Chelsea on the groupon website and we were excited because it looked like a trendy little hotel with a great location- location is the only good thing about this hotel! We checked in and were offered valet or self parking, we had seen the self park area on our way in and it was super close to... More

The first time we traveled to A.C. I surprised my boyfriend with a weekend getaway for his birthday in 2007. I came across The Chelsea Luxe just by doing a google search on places to stay in A.C. that wasn't too expensive but nice. Needless to say it was the best idea ever, we enjoyed the outside deck off of... More

My husband and I stayed there on a Friday night and had a package that included breakfast. It is very conveniently located to all attractions on the Boardwalk. The price of the hotel is reasonable during the week but of course on Friday nights is higher and on Saturday nights higher yet. The price reflects the location and time of... More

This place has all of the ingredients needed for an excellent beach side boutique hotel - but it's not that. Do not be fooled. It's a bit less than average. It's on the beach - and boardwalk. The beach bar and outdoor and indoor pools look great (due to our plans - we did not get the chance to use... More

The staff at The Chelsea Hotel REALLY do try to get things right. They care about the guests and their hotel. Unfortunately. many things in our 2 night stay were not up to expectations. Here goes--despite calling 3 hours in advance our room was not ready at the time they said it would be ready nor were our two rooms... More

One night in soft comfy king bed and you will be hooked! Small window faces beach but room also had large opening side glass. Clean, modern in an art deco kind of way. Good music pipes through halls catering to the laid back younger crowd. Fantastic breakfast at Taplitzkis!! Hip and cool. You will dig it. 4 stars because the... More

This place is a dump compared to the price. The items in the room were worn and thread-bare (the lamp shade was ripped in 3 places). The hallways were cluttered and the elevators were either broken, or very, very slow. The staff is unfriendly and no one at all was smiling. They must be just as miserable as the guests.... More

I was just here two days ago with my partner. The front desk wasn't so friendly and looked like they hated their jobs. My room was nice. It was on the 8th floor & the space was more than enough for my boyfriend and I. I love to take warm showers even in the summer after I cool off my... More

Unfortunately all the other negative reviews rang true to our experience: long check in lines, unattractive hotel badly in need of upgrades, dingy, and somewhat unclean. HOWEVER, we had the good fortune of being able to change our horrible room on the 6th floor with an "ocean view" obstructed by the huge air conditioning units (how dare they call that... More

Whatever you do, do not and I mean do not stay at this place. It felt like the room hasn't been cleaned in months. The bath tub had slime! It grosses me out just writing about it. The furniture looks like it was bought in a flea market and to top it off we paid $299/night. I must say, if... More
