Hotel is big (in size). Cockroach menace welcomed me..My Electric kettle was full of them. In spite of complaints cockroaches didn't disappear but the kettle itself disappeared and was never replaced. Carpets have started stinking. Service in the dining hall was pathetic. It took us 2 hours to consume one peg and the second peg was never served until we... More

The hotel is a downtrodden old place. The only good things to talk about here are the location (close to airport) and the entrance lobby. Coming to all that really matters to a traveler- Check-in- process smooth, No information provided on the amenities available in the hotel. Rooms are old and oddly designed, with old furniture. The walls are wet... More

Don't ever take this hotel. It is horrible. Pathetic. Rooms are stinking, furniture totally worn out, food sucks. We stayed there in feb 2012 and had a tough time. Few lights in the room didn't have switches and we couldn't turn them off in the night. Any lodge in chennai wud be better than this place. Please avoid this hotel.

Checkers hotel is very near to Airport, I stayed there for few hours in transit. Its a good value for money. At reasonable cost you get good deal. For short transit it is too good. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Absolutely awful place. Terrible housekeeping. Filthy rooms. I have nothing nice to say. A complete rip off! The taxi service at the hotel is a total scam. The AC never worked and travelling in chennai weather in that situation made the memory all the more terrible.
