First arrived and they were nice. Room had a small odor. It was their last room. Entered the room and the TV did not work. After about an hour the desk clerk came to the room, played the remote and as he was walking out said "ill give you a discount tomorrow" When I tried to fix the TV, it... More

Room was disgusting, carpets were untouchable, only the sheets on the bed were safe touching, completely overpriced for the location and level. Needed extra blankets, none were available. Breakfast was absolutely gross, left and went to a diner.

Very good for the price and clean. A couple of bugs found in the bathroom but that is not uncommon. A bit dated retro (1980/1990s) but good for quick overnight and out. Wifi is pretty good and close to most everything. I would stay again. My suggestion to mgmt is that it would be wise to invest in anti-insect/anti bed-bug... More

Staff was friendly enough. However, room was tired, old, and worn out. No hot water for morning shower. Doors open to the outside, which meant you could hear all noise out in the parking lot. Hard to connect to the Internet. Hotel is able to charge the prices they charge because it is so close to Atlantic City.

Knowing the typical expectations of a best western, we were not let down. Inexpensive and decent lodging with no special frills. Check in / out service was both quick and friendly. Room was clean and decent with a comfortable bed. AC worked fine. Absolutely nothing negative to say about this place for the price we paid. I was decent value.
