My boyfriend and I were coming to AC for a friends birthday party. We did not want to go all out for a hotel since we would not be in room most of the time. We were both on the fence about the hotel. With the mixed reviews and low cost. We called Expedia and told them we wanted a... More

The room had bad smells, the bed was like stone, can't access to the wifi, and the breakfeast had only muffins and juices! Staff was not bad, but not good, either. I would NOT stay here again, I'm sure of it.

My boyfriend and I stayed here a couple of nights mid-week (Septmenber 2013). He was planning to spend $70-100/night at a hotel outside of Vineland. I insisted that we take exit 40 and head for Absecon. He had his doubts. My boyfriend couldn't believe the quality of the room for the price. The room we had was clean, and the... More

Good choice for budget property. Friendly, courteous and helpful owners who obviously are taking pride in their facility. Very clean, good size room, large baths, good beds/pillows. A/C a bit noisy but nothing extreme. Concrete construction building so noise from neighbors is little to no issue. We got their "special" price (Sun-Thurs) so it was a super deal. Atlantic City...

Stay every year. I'm not looking for luxury and for $30 a night 5mins from the AC Boardwalk you can't beat Empire Inn. The staff is friendly & the place is clean. Nice little pool and free donuts / Coffee . Never had a problem, never seen a bug, and always sleep well. I've stayed at the same property prob... More

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

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
