I am still staying in The Checkers while writing this review...... Worst place to stay Rooms require sheer renovation. I think they have not renovated in past 10 years. Room Service never picks up the calls. By the way, if you are lucky enough and they pick up the call, whatever you order will not be served before 1 hour.... More

I chose this hotel since it was one of the closest to Chennai Trade Centre. The advantage is the location and 24 hours check out system. However, it was a big mistake to chose this hotel as nothing is right here. The service is pathetic and consecutive 3 nights I literally had to shout at them. The rooms are ok... More

Strategic location. Staff were very courteous. Gives a real privacy feel but room not maintained properly. Spoiled toilet seat, visible thick dust at many places including mirrors, no bathroom mats, very basic toiletries etc., made me feel it was not worth the tariff charged.

The place was really bad and not worth the money. To start with it requires a renovation, most of the infra is really run down. The room service is really shabby to say the least. Most of the food in the menu card is not available. The worst part is that the food in the buffet service in their restaurant... More

Stayed at this hotel for a night in July15. And what a night it was! I checked in at around 12:45 am and kept waiting for water bottle and towel for half an hour. Every time I called the front desk, I was told that it was on its way. Then after waiting for half an hour, I went down... More

The most pathetic hotel I've ever stayed at in my life. Room and carpet had a musty smell, AC didn't work in the room nor in the hallways. They changed the room, and it was the same. Finally I fought to get a floor fan as I was too tired to change the hotel. Bathrooms were stinking, bed had bugs,... More

I am a frequent traveller and had experienced from a top class to budget hotels around the world. But I am honestly shocked with the cleanliness standard of the room, it was outrageous. Had a strong musty smell and was not able to breath at ease, all soft furnishings were dirty, Carpets never seen the vaccum for months, Toilets disgusting,... More

Nice Hotel on virtual tour but pathetic in reality. Poor maintenance as AC didn't work at all, complained lots of time and they assured it would be rectify but nothing happened. Simply NO for future visits. Poor service.

My Office booked this Hotel for me just because I wanted to stay near the airport. My first experience with the Hotel was good as it just needed one email from me to start the response and arrange pick up at airport, which was good. Once in Hotel, I was happy to see the Good reception and did not bother... More
