Very disappointing. We were in the "supposedly" nicer, newer, section, not the Annex. The entire hotel is very shabby and worn. Peeling wallpaper, chipped paint, and broken veneer. Lighting in room was very dim and lampshades were old and dusty. Walls are paper thin. Broken toilet paper holder. No safe in room (there was supposed to be.) There are stains... More

I went with my New York girlfriend 8/.25/16. We stayed at the Lux king bed ocean view. They gave us a free large bottle of red wine. Room was huge and modern almost spotless . The third cover sheet on the bottom had a brown spot on it. I mentioned this to the maid . Great view from the room.... More

Let me start by saying we usually stay at the Trop. We stayed here because i had an old livingsocial voucher that needed to be used. I probably wont stay here again though. Mostly everything you read about the conditions are true. Needs some cleaning and updating , (and im NOT picky). Elevator is used by the cleaning staff which... More

The room me and my friends stayed in was clean and well kept. The staff was personable and helpful. Most of all our valet James who helped us when we lost our ticket to pick our car up. Only complaint was that the in room wifi was extremely poor.

After reading many of the bad reviews of this place we should have known better. Went to AC for a one night getaway on my birthday, my wife had a discount on the room so we gave it a try. First looks in the lobby is dark and drab, and yes the elevators take forever to come. Getting on the... More

We just got back from our second trip to the Chelsea. I hate to say this was our last trip there. First off, Check in was crazy. I think it took over 40 minutes to get checked in. I waited 15 minutes for an elevator only to have the bellhops take two carts up and not let any of us... More

I was staying at Harrah's, but wanted to see the boardward. My taxi driver recommended The Chelsea's restaurant. Oh, no. My waffle was so dry I had to use a knife to cut it. I was running late and hungry or I would have/should have sent it back. The boardwalk is neat in the a.m., but don't eat breakfast here.

The Chelsea is one of the most affordable hotels in AC and I've stayed there twice. Both times there was more than a 30 minute wait standing in line to check-in (at check-in time.) I left around check-out time and had to wait 40 minutes for the valet to bring the car around. You can self park, but that lot... More

We attended a photo shoot for my daughter and needed a place to stay for the day. We stayed at the Annex. The rooms were clean but could use some updating. The beds are comfortable but furniture is old. Patio Door windows should be kept clean.
