When we heard the Showboat was closing down at the end of August, we wanted to see it one last time. The casino is really showing it's age - everything looks dirty or in need of repair. Obviously there is no need for maintenance when the operation is going to shut down. It's too bad - this is the first... More

I did book as a last minute deal but for the descent price it had the ideal location, on the boardwalk. The casino was quiet which leads to me to believe that not much action is happening. In fact, it's was a Friday night and .4 out of 4 casinos in this area were quiet and not crowded. The room... More

We were expecting so much more being on the famous Atlantic City Boardwalk but the Showboat didn't live up to our expectations. There was no free wifi in our rooms (they wanted charge us extra), the food was overpriced and so were the drinks. The Mardi Gras decor was okay but dated. I had always wanted to come to Atlantic...

Customer Service was unpleasant. They were unwilling to accommodate us with a pleasant room. Our room smelled like smoke.
