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

Recently visited this hotel and went to their bar with couple of friends, horrible experience I would say. The Aircon was not working and no fans, they had kept a small cooler for us but that was also taken away for their manager after some time. Then they suggested we go to their rooftop restaurant, that was even more pathetic... More

I stayed in The Checkers between 17th and 18th March and the experience was not pleasant. First of all the room allotted to me had a small circular bed which was pretty uncomfortable. I had to lie down exactly in the middle of the bed else my legs would go out of the bed. And yes, I am not a... More

hotel stay is not very delighted, room ac was not working perfectly and the food variety is not good, the only thing is that it is near to the airport otherwise it is not good for a family stay, if you are looking for a cheaper hotel then may be you can opt it

I was sent to the hotel by my airline, Oman Air when my flight was delayed by 14 hours. I spent a full day there and couldnt sit still as it was quite badly maintained. The rooms were old, bed sheets and linen were stinky and the bathrooms had lost thier charm , with dirty tubs. Also, they had only... More

This is the opening line of this hotel in it's website, "Not all treasures need to be hidden. In fact, we can't wait for you to discover our little jewel, The Checkers Hotel in Chennai." Ya right! It's a jewel but the one which is sold on roadside and costs in pennies! And about "discovering this jewel", you won't discover... More

I had the misfortune of staying at The Checkers. The property is not at all well maintained. I think this was a landmark property during its prime (it has capsule lifts, end to end carpeting, video phones) but all in a state of poor maintenance. Location wise it is only around 20 mins (approx) from the airport and hence has... More

The light bulb holders are broken/hanging. The wall had some holes etc. Cigarette smell every where. Complement buffet B/fast is below average. Staff not friendly. They were like treating us on their... More

Poor maintenance, full of mosquitoes, water was leaking from the bathroom in the upper floor, stinking bed. Had a very unpleasant stay and checked out immediately after I booked a room in a different hotel.
