DO NOT ATTEMPT TO STAY HERE! These guys run the biggest scam around. I called and asked what the price would be and they quoted me $100+tax..The next night my boyfriend and I show up after a rough trip and having very hard time finding the place- with no help from them because their accent was so heavy we had...

The phones didnot work, the room smelled heavily of smoke, the ceiling fan was broken, there was noise all night long, there is no place to get a snack,... More

This was the cheapest hotel we found in atlantic city on a saturday night. For a budget hotel it's fine. It is an $8.00 cab ride down to the boardwalk. It was raining really hard and the ceiling leaked a little bit. Other than that, it was good. We were a little surprised though that for $30.00 more we could... More

This was worse than the rooming houses I stayed at as a kid in AC and I shared a bathroom there.... at least they were not $149.00 a night (and they were clean). The room smelled. I had to pay up front and they had paper bath mats. It was by far the worst hotel/motel experience I have ever had...... More

While the Sunset Inn is affordable, it is not a hotel that I would stay for a week in. It was far from all the places I wanted to go to. The Pool left little to be desired, and there was nothing in the vicinity of the hotel to go to when you did not want to visit the boardwalk... More

I thought I'd give this hotel a try being that it had mixed reviews. But once I arrived it wasn't what I thought it would be. It seemed like it was in the middle of no where b/c there's NOTHING in the area. The Borgata is nearby but it's not a place you can walk to being that there's no... More

The motel is a 2 min. cab to the Borgata. Good place to stay if you are not going to the boardwalk or the boardwalk casinos. Great rates to save some $ for fun and gambling. We bring our own sheets, and piilow cases, and blanket to make it comfortable. Overall the rooms are semi-clean, and is an OK place... More

Well after reviewing the reviews on here I wasn't sure if this was the place for me. And the fact that I could not find a picture of it really bothered me. BUut the place was much better than I had suspected. The furniture was fine, the bathroom was cute, the cable was great, lots of channels. But I don't... More
