The title says it all! ! I'm so upset how this place let me down. Not even during the worse blizzard in years would they let me cancel my resevervation. They wouldn't even let me change dates. They really ruined my 40th Birthday. I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone. They steal people's money.

The website describes it as Retro Motel Chic......I call it dirty and run down. My friend recommended the Chelsea to me but forgot to mention there were two sides, the Luxe and the Annex. I booked the Annex for me and my 3 friend....big mistake. The carpet was dirty, the bathroom tiles were stained yellow, the dresser had no varnish... More

When we checked in the process was smooth and pleasant. When we proceeded to our room, that is when the confusion set in. We went down a very long hall that was separated from the lobby with a large door. We went through the door and realized our room was located in what appeared to be a motel and not... More

So The Chelsea is running an excellent ruse...you walk in to the lobby, which is sleek, shiny, modern and fab. You are checked in by excellent staff and then you are directed to the Annex.. The Annex is an horrible shabby motel, decor is straight out of the 70's, the room was slightly grubby and the bathroom made me shudder.... More

Decided to stay here on the spur of the moment. Not worth what we paid. It was cleanish, but extremely outdated. I think original décor from 1967. The bathroom sink looked like an airplane sink. TV Stand, the drawers would not stay closed and there was a bottle cap and folded up paper under one leg to try to make... More

DO NOT STAY HERE. When you first walk in, you walk in through The Chelsea proper. The lobby there is modern, sleek, contemporary. Then you realize your mistake, that *you've* made reservations for the Annex, the motel-like part of the hotel that boast a "retro" look on their website's description. "Retro" means flashing neon likes that might as well have... More

I have actually never written a review but feel as though it is necessary. I stayed here on New Year's Eve AT&T he annex. And let me tell you, it is like a crack house, you are better off staying at the motel across the street. It was dirty, the bathroom had bug s all over, the water had no... More

The lobby is nice but then they send you down a dark, dank hallway with an elevator best suited for an hourly rate motel... The bathroom had hair in all of the corners and the tub, that didn't belong to us. We all opted to wear flip flops in the shower... No bueno...The pictures on their site are very deceiving......

Unless you're 22 and sharing a room with 6 others with no intentions of going to sleep, DO NOT STAY HERE!! My husband, baby and I stayed here and had a miserable experience. Drunks roamed the halls all night throwing beer cans and bottles, screaming and banging on doors All. Night. Long. We called the front desk to no avail.... More

Halloween weekend a friend and I booked a room at the Annex so we could enter into the various Halloween contests at the Tropicana. A room at the Tropicana was too expensive for our budget so we booked at the Annex which is next door to the Tropicana. The neon red light that says "The Annex" was the first giveaway... More
