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).

not the best place

there was a gapping hole where a mini fridge used to be in my room. I called front desk they stated they would bring a mini fridge in. Once they got there, there weren't enough outlets to plug the mini fridge in. The attendant told me I had to pick between light in my room or a mini fridge at that time I had to talk to the manager who straightened that out.

It was alright. Stayed at the annex.

Pros: great location. Nice hotel lobby very retro! Nice staff. Comfy beds. Cons: Room was not as big as I remembered. Toilet would not flush every time and floor was wet in bathroom when we arrived. The AC in the room was blowing out hot air so we had to open the window. The hallways were smelly. Overall it was fine for a one night stay! Great location right next to the tropicana. We weren't in the room much but I would not stay here if it were for more than a night.

just okay

The hotel definitely has a nice lobby but the rooms aren't anything special at all..the double rooms are crowded with barely any lighting..but you get what you pay for , at 35$ a night per person not bad.

Chelsea in AC

Overall the experience was good. We had to stay on a Friday and Saturday night so that drove the price of the room up but I did get a good deal.. It is one of the last hotel south on the boardwalk so it is a good walk to the heart of the entertainment area except it is next to the one major casino that is very nice.

use affordable public transportation as other valet locations will charge high fee just to leave car at another casino for a few hours.

Good weekend getaway

It was a very nice hotel with a super helpful staff , everything went very smooth. The room was clean and the location was convenient for the type of night me and my friends were planning,being that it was next to the tropicana & around the corner from a liquor store. Enjoyed my time there and will stay there in the future

Guys weekend

The hotel was exactly what we were looking for: a cheap stay close to all of the expensive casinos. It is a little far from everything except the trop and it does not have it own casino which is a downside. But if you get a good deal this is a great hotel to choose.
