Rooms are big with large reception area hotel looks good when u enter, but once u settle down in the room it's not good. Aging rooms no proper maintenance, and not clean. They can do better if the renovate this property. If u get rooms for below 1500 it's OK or else avoid.

The only good thing about this place is the location.Right in the middle of the main road and close to bus/train stations. The first look of the hotel says half the story. Not very inviting. The rooms are small. The hallway and lobby smell of dampness. The bathroom did not have hot water and the tap felt like it would... More

I stayed here for less than a day as i checked in one afternoon and left very early next morning. Good things : Pretty close to airport. Rs 150 by ola cabs. Got the room in a deal for around 1800 rupees. Not bad. Hotel seems to have been a 4 star like property once. Grand lobby. Dominos pizza just... More

Very poorly maintained hotel. It's not even worth a single star. The price of these rooms are equal to ginger hotels or lemon tree hotels. Horrible staff and worst restaurant. I made a biggest mistake of choosing this hotel. It looked really good on net but trust me once you visit this place you will realise that you made a... More

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
