Budget motel with a pass to high-class amenities

The Annex is the result of four-star hotel The Chelsea taking a Howard Johnson hotel under its wing. Though the luxurious touches of The Chelsea Tower rooms do not extend to its Annex, described by the property as "retro-motel style accommodations," the price point is markedly lower than the main hotel. And guests can partake of the same glamorous lounges, pools, restaurants, beach club and beach service as guests of its more elegant Atlantic City sister next door.

Highlights
  • Outdoor heated saltwater pool and weekday access to seasonal rooftop pool
  • Two restaurants and several nightlife venues
  • Boardwalk access to quickly reach restaurants, casinos and shopping
  • Spa offers massage and body treatments
  • Complimentary 24-hour fitness center
Rooms

Cost-conscious rooms deliver TVs with On-Demand service and iPod docking stations at the bedside. Bathrooms at the Annex at The Chelsea stay true to the retro vibe with original tile and vintage fixtures. Most rooms have balconies overlooking the saltwater pool. Designed as the hotel's social wing, connecting rooms and suites at The Annex offer group-friendly configurations. Order door-to-door food delivery from Teplitzky's, the classic diner downstairs.

Features

Early birds at this surprising Atlantic City motel can rent a private cabana on the beach (available first-come, first serve). Beach service, also first-come first serve, includes towels, lounge chairs and sun umbrellas with private set-up. Weekday guests should check out The Cabana Club at The Annex Chelsea, a seasonal outdoor pool with bar, cabanas and an after-dark social scene. Or, venture out and reach the bustling, Old Havana-themed shops and restaurants of Atlantic City's The Quarter at Tropicana in minutes on foot. Valet parking is available (fees apply).

awesome weekend getaway

great hotel for the price we paid. Me and my girlfriends went to celebrate our friend's birthday. We stayed only one night. Our friends stayed at Tropicana, right next door. It was raining, but it was such a short walk we didn't even get wet. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. I also like the fact that they have valet parking for $15 , awesome. We had breakfast downstairs before we left the hotel. I had cheese-steak omelette and my friend had stuffed french toast. Amazing, they both were out of this world. I highly recommend this hotel if you are not looking to spend $100 plus for the stay.

Went for a weekend stay

I stayed this past weekend at the annex, and it was an okay stay. The decor of the registration area was beautiful, and then you discover that it doesn't extend to the entire hotel. The elevator and stairwell area looks like a cheesy motel from the 70s. The hotel hallways are a little dark and plain. My room looked when I entered, but I wouldn't trust the cleanliness of the place. The bed and linens were nice and comfortable, but dust was noted on the lamps, base of the nightstands and radiator. The bathroom looked clean at first glance, but under the sink, on the floor, wasn't clean, and the mirror wasn't clean. Overall, the location was ideal, next to the boardwalk and easy to walk around to other attractions. I would stay again, but would bring cleaning supplies, smh.
