I have no idea why this hotel is rated as high as it is. The only beautiful thing in this hotel is the view. Our room was something out of a horror movie from the 70s with is dinged furniture that hasn't been upgraded since 1970. The hallways smell of damp carpet or a home that hasn't had a window...

I remember when this hotel was a Holiday Inn. I stayed with friends in the main building, had a ocean view room and enjoyed the night. When this hotel became The Chelsea, I contacted them to see if they offered a travel agents rate. I read the self-reviews about it being a boutique hotel, the new place to hang out...

That's all I have to say. Do you like bed springs popping in your back? The beds were prehistoric, no frig, had a bad experience there and will never return, even the restaurant down stairs was a zero, I give this place a Big Fat ZERO

The hotel totally needed an upgrade on the inside. Dirty and over priced. The curtains was just raggedy and dusty. The time I waited in line to get my room was nearly 2 hours. Horrible place, so not happy with this hoteI. Did enjoy the pool but that's as far as it goes.

My husband and I booked this hotel through priceline, so we actually had no clue what hotel we were getting. It was for a weekend, and it was inexpensive. The location was good, really close to the tropicana hotel/casino, and on the boardwalk. They gave us a room on the 19th floor (top floor excluding the penthouse) and the view...

For a last minute place to stay it was nice in price and location. I believe they are closing down, honestly it needs some improvement not many. Parking situation had me vexed a little too. But i wouldn't mind stay here again.

Rooms are just ok for the price we paid. Would need some improvement. But the location is nice and right on the boardwalk. Baths were old. But they seems to be pretty fully booked on that day. There are multiple towers/extension of the properties, just make sure which one you choose. May be the main tower would be better than...

This place is disgusting. The receptionist had the worst attitude Wallpaper peeling, stains on the bed sheets, elevator doors are damaged, the furniture in the room is damaged The best part of our stay was the refund that the manager gave us after being there for 10 minutes
