Show boat's last day is today. The Revel is also closing today. Showboat was a decent hotel and casino. I enjoyed my stays there and the staff was always courteous . There are still Harrah facilities in AC including: Harrahs, Ballys (Stay away from Claridge).

Although the staff was exceptionally courteous. We felt that the rooms, probably due to the closing of the casino were not up to our expectations. But then again we loved the boardwalk and the atmosphere of Atlantic City.

This was the first Atlantic City casino that I ever gambled in, and if I have ever won money in Atlantic City, it was there at The Showboat. I remember my very first stay there with my mom many years back when the complimentary rooms included a continental breakfast! While maybe not the most trendiest of hotels down there, I... More

This was my first time in AC and we decided to stay at the Showboat because they were offering such excellent rates. All of the staff was friendly and helpful including Dave and Andy at the casino bar. The rooms were clean but out of date. Unfortunately we had a room right next to the elevator shaft and it ran...

We went down for a birthday celebration, rather than spending double the price at another casino we decided to come here. I've never stayed here before and thought we'd give it a shot, needless to say I was very underwhelmed!! The room was ok, we had an upgrade in the bourbon towers. The room served its purpose but left much... More

I made a reservation online for an ocean view room specifically to watch the airshow and when I arrived they told me that all of the ocean view rooms were taken and that they do NOT gaurantee the room types you sign up for online. The room we were given was nice and clean but it was in the tower... More

My wife and I booked a last-minute room at Showboat on a Friday night for an affordable $120. We read reviews before booking, and realized the property is closing soon, so we were prepared for the worst. If you are looking for an upscale resort experience, look elsewhere. The basic room worked for what we needed, a bed close to... More
