The bathroom is what killed me the most, the stained toilet and bent up shower rod. It was a last minute trip and this shack was not my first choice. The comforter smelled so bad I could not keep it on me. The jacuzzi in our room spewed out BROWN/YELLOW water and the owner, he said his name was Sonny,... More

After seeing a wonderful show in Atlantic City with my wife and our family, we went to our hotel which we booked through Hotels.com. It was about 1am Saturday night/Sunday morning. The hotel looked fairly nice from the outside. We had to wake the desk clerk to check in. The lobby was dreary, and it took no less than 5-7... More

I really thought that it would be awful but it was not bad. clean, spacious, pretty quiet. Microwave & fridge in room, Ac works great. It's old and needs some work plus an update but for the price it was worth the stay. pool was also clean. Don't count on the continental breakfast cause that's a joke,lol the mattress could... More

I had no problem when I stayed there. I think some people are over thinking bad feedback. I was satisfied when I stayed there. I also believe other hotels will make bad comments just to get a sale. I liked Empire when I stayed there. It was good enough for a cheap rate. Cable, Internet, Fridge, Microwave, Pool, Clean covers,... More

Needed a place to sleep for a night, the reviews that I read sounded ok and the pictures look fine. Found a good rate on Expedia and booked it last minute in the afternoon. Cell phone started ringing constantly from expedia and this hotel (but it is too expensive to answer my cell in another country). Arrived at the hotel... More

Well we stayed here for a night because Showboat would only give us one night. :( No problem, its close to the casinos, and cheap. We paid $26 plus tax. Do you know what you get for $26? This place! Check in was ridiculous. The clerk tried to charge us, and we had already prepaid at hotels.com. Then upon closer... More

I couldn't believe it! It was just awful. I booked it through Expedia at a very good rate. But when inside, the walls were filthy. The lighting in the bathroom was almost non existent. One of the lightbulbs was completely out. The door had been kicked in and the wood was missing by the door chain. I wouldn't send my... More

I stupidly glanced at Expedia's ranking when booking this hotel (4 out of 5!). I should have known something was amiss the instant I arrived. Upon arrival, I was behind a trio of ladies checking inn. The women were blabbing on and on and on to the clerk. I understand being polite, but when someone else is waiting in line... More
