Note this is given one rating because I can't post the review with a zero. This place is the biggest hole in the wall out there (and actually had a hole in the hotel room wall where a light fixture should have been). It's dirty, poorly lit and felt unsafe. The next door guests were screaming and playing loud music... More

I got a deal on Living Social so I decided to take my daughter and her friends for an overnight stay. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool on the ground floor was dirty and needed some TLC. This was my first time staying at this hotel and I soon realize there were two different sides. The... More

After being told they had no rooms available at the last minute, we checked on line and found they did have last minute rooms available. The room was $399 + tax for a Saturday night, no casino, and a half a block off the boardwalk. Our room was quite comfortable with a partial ocean. We knew at the last minute... More

Simple, hip, fun hotel. Simple decor, easy check-in, reasonable rates, & friendly staff. The restaurant had a nice view of the beach. Pool was dated and deserted, but not biggie since you can best the beach! Parking lot down the street, little higher can Casino rate, but don't get robbed. Ordered towels & it came quick. Had breakfast on the... More

I bought the Groupon deal for this hotel and stayed here for 1 night (stayed 2 nights at another AC hotel) and wasn't sure about the deal, I've heard to never buy hotel deals through Groupon. Well I won't be listening to that any more. This hotel was one of the best I have ever stayed at and hands down... More

That basically describes the Chelsea. The room, admittedly, was clean. The beds were comfortable. But this is not a four star hotel. The carpeting, especially in the lobby and common areas, has got to go. The furniture has lived past its prime as well. So, if you're looking for a mediocre, functional hotel room, the Chelsea is fine, but if... More

We stayed here for 2 nights last weekend and really enjoyed it. The hotel was clean, the staff was very nice and it is conveniently located on the boardwalk next to the Tropicana. Chill definitely be staying here again!

For being a Cape Resorts property, I did expect a bit more, but it was overall a decent experience. It was good, not great with the place needing a little love and TLC. I booked a mid-week stay because of the special package pricing, and I assumed it would be less busy in AC mid-week. We arrived at checkin time... More
