It takes a lot for me to walk away from a paid reservation but I did. This dump reeks of urine and smoke. They falsely advertise it with lovely photos on the Internet, obviously from a previous decade. I wouldn't let my dog stay there for fear he would catch a disease. The place actually made me gag. The woman... More

Shabby. The glass of the window next to the main entrance was broken. We checked in; the carpet on the lobby floor was so worn out that they ducktaped cheap rugs on it to hide the holes. Our room had a funky smell; holes in the carpet, holes in the sheets, stains on the wall & ceiling, there was hair... More

I don't know how is it possible but we haven't checked the reviews of Chelsea Inn on Tripadvisor before booking it. (You can rest assured that we would never ever have booked it have we done so, although reading them afterwards, in our cosy bed and breakfast was very amusing- our favourite one was the one mentioning hazmat suit- definitely...

If all you care about is price, this place will probably get the job done as they are cheap. However, that's where the benefits end. The place is old, musty and smokey smelling, and run down. Furniture and beds are old not all that comfortable. Carpets and walls are dirty and it generally just seems like cleaning is not really... More

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
