Had 2.5.5 install. Upgraded to 2.8.1 which was a disaster.

So I installed 2.7.3

Before i upgraded I turned off the site so it's offline

I am unable to login to CP. I don't get an invalid login message it just reloads the login form.

Am in panic mode as I scramble to get access to the site.

If you're not running a config override you can edit:

system>expressionengine>config>config.php with this:

$config['is_site_on'] = 'y';
