Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great stay at Holiday Inn Express Chelsea
We loved the amenities in the room particularly the small refrigerator. The décor throughout the hotel was stylish-actually more than we expected. The room was a little warm when we entered. It took some time for the room to cool down. The bottom of bath tub needed to be whitened. Overall, we were very happy with the entire stay.

I had to return to Chelsea for a procedure at MHNI/ Chelsea Hospital. See my review dated April 24. Second visit confirmed that this is a well run facility. Well maintained, clean, friendly staff, good variety at breakfast and nice amenities. A relaxing environment only 5 minutes to Chelsea Hospital. Great for families of in patients and out patients at Chelsea Hospital.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MrsClean76 Front desk clerk did not want to honor my reservations
I reserved 4 rooms in August of 2013 for a stay in May of 2104 for my family visiting from out of town. I called several days in advance to try to change the name on the reservation from my name to my guest(s) names. The man on the phone, said "no, that is not possible".
So, I went online and added my guest names, under the Additional Guest field of the online form and saved. All good so far.
All 4 of my guests (4 separate rooms) were told by the front desk clerk that no rooms were available and each had some sort of other issue:
Guest 1 & 2 arrived on Thursday and were told they did not have rooms for the night, and their reservations didn't start until Friday. A lenghty conversion ensued. Finally, after each handed over the printout with confirmation number from website, he was able to "find" the rooms.
Guests 3 & 4 arrived on Friday and were told again, no rooms, and that they had already checked in on Thursday. Again, needed to hand over the printed confirmation from website before he could "find" the rooms.
Stay was fine for all, but front desk needs sensitivity training and computer training as well.

Spent 10 nights while being treated at Chelsea Hospital (MHNI). Spotless rooms and common areas. Excellent breakfast selections. Very clean breakfast area. Many items hand wrapped for cleanliness.
Nice indoor pool and fitness center. Friendly helpful staff. Owner/Operator is on site. He is focused on providing a comfortable stay. Greeted by name. Often heard," what can I do to make you more comfortable".
One mile from Chelsea Hospital. 1.2 miles to downtown Chelsea restaurants. Hotel has fast food restaurants within walking distance.
It is always a risk stopping at an unknown interstate exit. What condition will we find? This Inn is excellent. The owner/operator is new(4months), if he can keep up this level of comfort,cleanliness and customer service then he certainly will be fully booked and a Holiday Inn award winner.
Patients and family of Chelsea Hospital and MHNI will find this a soothing ,peaceful and relaxing place during stressful times.
Just far enough off I94 ( about 300yards) to eliminate road noise.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DWalker Convenient and Quiet Location
Hotel is seconds from 94W and only a 15 minute drive from the Univeristy of Michigan campus. Hotel offers excellent and friendly customer service. Rooms are clean and offer a quiet atmosphere to complete work remotely if needed. Continental breakfast includes numerous choices daily. Staff are always welcoming and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in the Ann Arbor or surrounding areas.

If a barking puppy dog is what you want to hear for 2 hours, then this is the place for you. If after you are 50% finished with your shower and the water pressure drops to a trickle, this is the place to stay. To Finnish off me stay I grabbed a cup of coffee only to find the coffee filled with coffee grounds. Due to I stay over 120 nights in hotels a year, am I asking too much? All I want is a clean, comfortable, quite place to stay with a understanding hotel staff when there is an issue.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Maureen1914 Inflexible manager/policy
I am a resident of the city of Chelsea who experienced a flood at my home during the subzero temperatures January 9, 2014. My fiancé and I stayed at this facility as a result. I booked 2 nights not knowing if I would need both. The clerk and manager at the time of check in made a point of tell us to notify them before 6pm the next day to avoid being charged an extra night. The next day at 430 pm I call the facility to notify them we wouldn't need that second night. I was told that it was "too late" for them to resell the room and I would be charged the extra night. After speaking to that night's manager, I was quite frustrated with her lack of empathy and was told I would be charged a late checkout fee of $69. Being misled by the previous night's staff, I felt I was not responsible for the late checkout time. I was not offered any other compensation as a result.
I told the manager, Dannell, that I was not happy with this outcome but was only told "I'm sorry you feel that way"
I will not be using this hotel in the future or recommending it to any visitors to our city.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Redrackham Clean room but average service
Recognition of IHG membership at check-in.
Check-in agent was pleasant and jovial. Offered one complimentary bottle of water at check-in even though we were two people checking-in. Nevertheless I genuinely appreciated the gesture.
On the night of January 1st there was no water in the vending machine but when I brought it to the attention of the front desk, the nice lady at the front desk was kind enough to offer us a couple of complimentary bottles of water.
The not so good
On the night of Dec. 31st the smoke alarm went off in our room at 3:00am for no apparent reason. After about 20 minutes a lady and a man from the hotel staff were pounding at our door. The man came in pulled a chair, removed the alarm and left abruptly with a short apology. The alarm was never replaced the remainder of our trip (we checked out on January 2nd). No apology/explanation was offered at the front desk the next day or when we checked out.
The day we checked out I asked the lady at the front desk if we could have a bottle of water. The weather was bad outside and I didn't want to stop on the way to get a bottle of water on our return back to Canada. She abruptly told me that they only offer complimentary water at check-in and directed me to the vending machine. I did get the water from the vending machine but what bothered me most was the pettiness of this action. A bottle of water costs not more than $0.10 or $0.25. Surely that is not going to make a huge difference in the hotel's bottom line. As an IHG member, I was disappointed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by plricotta 7 night stay; clean room, great staff, breakfast could use some work.
No complaints at all except about breakfast variety. One recommendation about security.
Please offer more than 1 yogurt brand, especially when that is a 'fit' brand with artificial sweeteners. Please offer more fruit, fresh preferred, canned if necessary. PLEASE offer General Mills Cherrios, not some poor tasting off brand. Please offer some bread products with more fiber.
Also, I felt uncomfortable parking in the back and using the side entrances at night. More light would be better, both in the lot, and at the 2 side entrances.
Thank you for a fine overall stay.

This was our 2nd stay in recent months at this location. We will be back. It is conveniently located right off highway. Rooms clean and well appointed. Best of all...the evening front desk clerk, Ashley, is always happy and welcoming and helpful! The night desk clerk...unfortunately, even on our 2nd stay did not catch his name...but, he made sure that the wonderful free breakfast was out early for us since we needed to leave by 7 AM for our horse show again. Highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express in Chelsea!

The bathtub has no bath mat or applique on the base to make it less slick. When taking a shower, the combination of soap and water makes it hazardous.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by P5403 Quite. Comfortable bed and clean rooms.
I realize we all try to save money and as requested, we used our towels more than once, actually 2 days. However, it is always refreshing to have clean towels daily at a motel. We asked for clean linens and we received that but fresh and clean towels would have been great too. Overall, great service, cleanliness. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by klBobZ A quite expensive "budget" hotel
While this property was well maintained and very comfortable with a very congenial and helpful, it is quite overpriced. I had stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in another city that was comparable to this one and was given a discount as a retired military member and payed about 50% of what I payed at this facility. I am not sure what caused the significant difference in charge or the unwillingness to give me a military discount, but it truly lowered my satisfaction significantly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MLEB Can't get a good night's sleep
I've stayed here twice. I forgot that I didn't enjoy my first stay here and needed to travel at the last minute and booked a room here.
3:30am wake up call by what I think was the person next to me taking a shower. The pipes were screachingly loud. I didn't bother calling the front desk because I didn't want to wait in the middle of the night for someone to come tell me what I probably already knew. I had to wait 20-30 minutes for the shower to stop. Then the walking above my room started. Picture being at home and how you can hear someone walking on the second floor, I didn't think we were supposed to hear that in a hotel facility.
I won't stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dublin2010 Very enjoyable stay.
Everything was great, but one thing really stood out. It didn't matter when i came down to the breakfast area, the food, tables, counters floor looked perfect. The young lady , who took care of the area, was very efficient, and always made a quick sweep through the area, when customers were away from the counter, to clean , top off food, etc. Many hotels have food areas that are a total disaster. This one was exceptionally outstanding.
