Never in my life have I ever stayed in a dump like this. When we arrived it seemed that some kind of drug deal was happening in the parking lot. The receptionist was pretty helpful (thats the only positive). We entered the room and it smelt filthy, the carpet was absolutely disgusting, the sheet had blood stains and holes, the...

Terrible. People fighting outside your room. Loud trains go past hourly. Room is old and all the power sockets are not good enough to hold your phone charger. It just falls out of the wall. Couldnt get a decent nights sleep. Traffic noise is terrible. No air con. When we went to our room it was closed up and on...

Worst place ever. Pay whatever you have to pay to stay someplace else. It was very late so we slept on top of the covers and fled at 6 am. Got a much better room just down the road at the Lake shore Inn for only a little more money and there was breakfast as well, so we probably broke...

Chelsea inn hotel location was in a convenient location for me. The place is quiet and clean. Prices are very reasonable too. There are some restaurants within walking distance. We were welcomed by very friendly and courteous staff.

We booked this place because it was the cheapest hotel we could find in a state that tries suck every penny they can from you. That being said, you really do get what you pay for. This hotel was disgusting. Shower was dirty and the bed had blood stains and a syringe between the mattresses (we check for bed bugs...

We expected this hotel to be a little bit of a dump, so our expectations were not high going in. Even so, it was pretty awful. First, check in. They seemed completely unprepared and when they finally figured out what they were doing, they had us fill out forms with all the information we had already provided at booking (address,...

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...

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...

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...
