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).

Chelsea Annex, Wonderful Stay!!!

Wonderful Room! Older bathroom but Neat and Clean. Extremely well located hotel, just yards off the Boardwalk! Excellent Staff, The room was very comfortable! We really enjoyed our stay, and highly recommend to fellow travelers, especially if you are on a budget! This was our first overnight at Atlantic City, and the Chelsea Annex will always be our 1st choice!

You can leave your vehicle parked here and walk to the Boardwalk Hall for Events, to Dinner, most of the Casinos, etc. And if you are too tired to walk back, catch one of the numerous bicycle trams on the return!

awesome hotel

I love the chelsea hotel. Ive stayed there a couple of times and have been pleased each stay. The rooms are comfortable, afforable and the staff is excellent. Only issues I have is that the elevator in the annex barley works.. the staff uses it, so there is a long wait. and there is no coffee maker or microwave in the rooms. Also could use a indoor pool. Other than that, I would highly recommend.

Amazing hotel with a great view

Great hotel. Very close to the boardwalk. I recommend upgrading to stay in the regular Chelsea because it is well worth it.

Price was perfect!

The beds were clean and comfortable. There is 2 sections old and new. We were in the old rooms. The bathrooms were being fixed on the ceiling, they had the old tiles, pink, the floor was old also. The dressers were worn on the top. In the middle of the night some woman was screaming to get into her room, which woke us up. When I booked I needed 2 beds they brought me to a room with one bed. I had to go back down and at first they said they don't guarantee 2 beds but I insisted that's what I agreed on and they found a 2 bed room. When I got to hotel there was a few kids in the lobby screening very loud but once in the room I didn't hear anything. All and all the hotel lobby was very nice looking and safe. I was happy with the price I paid and when I complained about the yelling woman they gave me late checkout and free parking which would have been $15 per day. I also asked for an iron but never received it. There was a refrigerator in room.
