NIce hotel close to the beachPosted Jul 18, 2016
Pros: Love the rooftop pool. The room I stayed in was also very nice considering the low price for the short stay.
Location: Around the corner from the boardwalk and the beach.
Short stay during the middle of the week. Spontaneous getaway. Wanted a nice hotel near the boardwalk that was clean and comfortable but at a decent price. The Chelsea was the right choice.

Okay hotel but terrible staffPosted Jul 18, 2016
Pros: The bed and the staff at the fifth floor dinning area.
Cons: The front desk staff and the overall hotel was dirty.
Location: The location wasn't bad. I liked that it was right near the beach. But i wish it was closer to the board walk.
The hotel overall was ok. Not good, not great, just okay. One woman at the desk said we could pay for a later check out which we told her we wanted to do. She said to call the next morning and there would be no problem. So i called the next morning and the front desk woman was so rude and said we cant stay later. We have to leave by 11am or well get charged a late fee! It was ridiculous. I explained to her that i spoke to someone at the desk the day before and they said there would be no problem and she spoke over me and said check out is at 11 ma'am. I was so frustrated with that lady, I just packed up and left. I probably will never go back to that hotel and i do not recommend it.

Overpriced for The Quality You GetPosted Jul 11, 2016
Pros: Best AC in a hotel room I ever experienced Good location
Cons: Hotel is in need of upgrades Terribly long check in process 1995 AOL Dial-Up internet is faster than what they have in this hotel
Location: The location is good. You are right on the beach and boardwalk area. There are many restaurants and entertainment nearby.
The check-in process was terrible. We arrived around 8:30PM and there were 5 couples ahead of us. It took nearly 45 minutes for them to get to us for check-in. They had two people working but the one person every 7 minutes or so disappeared to do something. Check in should not take that long. The hotel, specifically the rooms and hallways to and from are very outdated. The carpet is old, walls are cracked, furniture and tv are more old school, there were water leaks in the hallway ceiling and was a musty odor. The shower handle operates like a bank vault and takes about 300 pounds of pressure to turn and at that point the palm of your hand is bruised (mine was). The shower is also half enclosed with glass and what this means is that you are cold because the cooler air from outside is mixing with the warmer air inside. They should enclose the shower area. The internet is so slow. AOL's 1995 dial up internet was faster and this is the truth! Again, there is no excuse for internet this slow. The people in valet parking were always friendly and helpful so you are taken care of there. On another plus note, this hotel has the best AC I have ever experienced. It is ice cold and puts you to sleep quickly. The location is also good as you are centrally located to everything - boardwalk, beach, shops, food and entertainment. That being said, $230.00 a night is overpriced for what you get.
