The decor of this hotel is adorable and the room I had came with a very pretty beach view. However, occupant be warned, it is smokey and not hear a casino or many fun things in AC. We ended up walking on shady streets and cabbing a lot, which is decidedly less fun than staying in a more prime location... More

This hotel calls itself a boutique hotel but there's nothing boutique about it (except that the wifi speed was so slow in evening hours it was like 20 years ago). Everything was very mediocre. The elevators shook and made noise which was a bit scary. If this is a 2-star hotel I'd give it a 4-star review, but since it... More

I strongly advice that, unless you find a special where you can get a room for $40 a night or less, you don’t stay here! I had bought a living social voucher in 2012 and was all set and ready to use it, but unfortunately hurricane sandy hit, and I was not able to cash in my voucher back then,... More

I was worried after reading reviews without any reason to be-my room was great. King size bed, decorated like a 25 yr old Manhattan party girl with a chaise lounger, well-stocked mini bar. Note-my room was in the Chelsea Luxe which is nicer than the Annex. I liked not being in the casino although the lack of dining options stinks.... More

Do not stay here. They will rip you off and charge your credit card for damages to the hotel room that is already damaged and dirty. Charged me $100 for a broken clock. Really!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The manager needs to take a reality check and take a good look at all the rooms. I'm sure he will fined something broken in every... More

My girlfriend and I decided at the last minute to stay over in Atlantic City last Saturday, but all of the casinos were $180+, and anything under $100 looked pretty dodgy. We found a room in The Chelsea on Priceline for $99, and decided to check it out. The lobby was modern and stylish, so we booked the room while... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at The Chelsea while staying there as part of her 40th birthday celebration. Staff was attentive and even gave us a bottle of champagne to help celebrate. our room was very nice and we had no problems. It helps to contact those in charge if you a planning on celebrating a special event.... More

I came here for a one night stay after a horrible experience at the Quality Inn Flamingo located across the street and I am so grateful to have come here. Love Love Love the modern decor of this room. The comforters on these beds were soooooo comfortable. The shower and bathroom itself was amazing. I will definitely be staying here... More

This is a non gambling hotel. They have some really nice and very profesional people on the staff. I love the chelsea beach. Get to the beach early. The hotel provides umbrellas, towels, and lounge chairs. They used to have beach food service also. The rooms in the lux tower are sweet. If you're a non smoker this is the... More

Our stay was fantastic. The entire staff was friendly and attentive. The decor, spacious room, complimentary valet parking and optional breakfast credit make for a tremendous value. We will definitely stay here again.
