I had a reservation for 1 week. I checked out after the first night. I came to Anchorage during peak tourist season for work. I choose this hotel because it seemed like a good value. It is not. I stayed in a room on the second floor. My room had stains on the carpet. My room had holes in the... More

1) The hotel used to be smoking/non-smoking. It's now completely non-smoking. While they're doing a pretty good job of ridding the rooms of stale smoke smell, if you have asthma or any sensitivity to smoke, I'd steer clear. 2) It wasn't badly priced for the tourist season in Alaska. Seriously, under $100 for a middle-of-June room? Count your blessings that... More

The price? Yes, tempting. The location? well yes, it is a late night flight...You just need a few hours of sleep to start your trip off right...No! Just say no...unless you want to sleep in an ashtray, wear a hazmat suit just to visit the bathroom... Or just wait until the "renovation."

I arrived and it looked ok. Nothing fantastic, but cheap and clean. Not a scary neighborhood. I go in, talk to the counter lady. She seems nice. I ask to see the room, and she says yes. Ugh. Smells like smoke. She apologizes, they don't allow smoking, but someone must have snuck it. I ask if there are other rooms.... More

This place is noisy, smelly with by far the most rude hotel staff i've encountered in my life. I have travelled in over 20 countries, this like 3rd world country. Suspicious activities outside, if you have booked atleast ask for a room on a higher floor.There were individuals starring inside and waiting for i dont know what in their backyard.

For the first time in my adult traveling life I failed to check Trip Advisor or Yelp before making a reservation ("cheap motel near airport - how bad could it be?"). I will never make that mistake again. The sad part is the average cost of a decent hotel/motel room in Anchorage is not that much more than this place.... More

It was a place to sleep. Hotels are very expensive after May 15 and this one was reasonable. They let me stay a past check out time too because my flight did not leave until late at night and I had turned in the rental car. This is not a 5 star hotel but staff was helpful and it was... More

The first thing that you notice at Chelsea Inn hotel is the smell of Exotic bacteria (that reminds me of microbiology class), ashtray, And what I'm pretty sure was the smell of vomit, all mingled together Within the lobby. We stayed because we were on a budget, And because my wife's name is Chelsea. This is probably One of the... More
