A pretty damn great place. The lobby is easy to navigate and the front door secure. This is a consistently nice and affordable New York hotel. We were able to walk to Manhattan in 15-20 minutes without breaking a sweat. If walking isn't your style, there is a Citibike stand less than a block away. The rooms were clean and the facilities worked well. We shared a bathroom with the guests next door, we never saw/smelt any trace of them though.
We were warned about street noise by locals however we slept fairly well on all nights, there was a complementary pair of ear plugs for soft-eared country folk.
The only noise that woke us was the occasional siren or early morning construction, nothing too serious. The restaurant downstairs makes a pretty decent cup of coffee. We stayed on the top floor, whilst they don't have an elevator but we managed well enough on our own.
The Chelsea Inn is a near perfect place for budget travelers wanting to get a feel for New York life.
