The Chelsea Pub and Inn is an eclectic Victorian located less than a block from the Atlantic City Boardwalk and across the street from the Tropicana Casino.For over 30 years, visitors to Atlantic City have been enjoying drinks and food in our 24 hour pub and grill and spending nights upstairs in our conveniently located Inn.The history of our location goes back much further than our 30 years here. The building was formerly Grossman's Kosher Hotel in the Atlantic City of old.We have kept the charm of our beautiful property- with its crooked stairs and floors, enhanced by recent renovations and themed rooms, which include all the modern comforts.Come and visit us for the night, weekend, or even just a cocktail

My wife and I wanted to stay in this rustic, historic hotel for something different. The standard casino hotels are just too ridiculously priced. For the price of two nights in AC, you can fly to Vegas, stay two nights and fly back with money still in your pocket. WAKE UP

We stayed here on an overnight trip and its handy, with its own parking, but not in the best area ever, although we felt the way about the whole of AC! We had to get up and off relatively early the next day and so didn't get to sample breakfast...I think 9am is way too late to

Overall unsatisfactory for what they advertise as a high end luxe hotel. Especially for the Tropicana. I am use to being in a much more modern room. This room was outdated, damaged, dirty, blood stain on curtains and filthy. Room 1102 is nothin like what the reviews say. The

Hello. I believe this review is for the Chelsea Anex, Tropicana property. The Chelsea Pub and Inn is not affiliated with the Tropicana.

You already know you won’t create any #FOMO visiting Atlantic City, but if you love the beach, there are miles of it where you can find some space for yourself. The Chelsea Pub & Inn is just one block from the boardwalk and beach, which meant we could walk along the shore early

A low rise unique hotel in a town of towers. Prohibition era features, should be preserved. Small comfortable rooms, decent breakfast in a fine room next to the library. Minutes away from Atlantic City's attractions.

Our room had a king-size bed and was their French suite, complete with lavender walls and Monet’s Water Lillies on the wall. We had just been standing right there, earlier in the summer.
Thank you for reaching out. At this time, there are no plans to revamp the Inn.

is the chelsea inn under new management or just the bar?
It’s under new management, the bar is located underneath the hotel.

I actually just saw an article in the phillyvoice yesterday that explained that only the pub is temporarily closing because they are changing owners and have to shut down while the liquor license is transferred. The pub apparently only closed for a few hours for cleaning when the Facebook post went up and since no one was there to answer the phones it caused a lot of confusion.

do the rooms have refrigerators or microwaves
I've stayed in 4 different rooms with one queen or king sized bed and they all had small fridges tucked away in the closet.

"Choose elsewhere"
"Make sure you give the exact number of adults and children to get an appropriate sized room."
"back rooms upstairs are quiet"
"Lots of stairs. Not sure if it is handicapped accessible."
"Back rooms are quieter, but front rooms have better Wifi reception. You can request a pet-free room."
