I had heard the Showboat is closing. After staying there this weekend, I am not surprised. I had read the reviews here on TripAdvisor and really did not want to stay, but my husband received a comp room and we really only wanted a place to clean off from the beach and rest. It really was a day trip to... More

The only two things that I could say that was good at the hotel was the buffet and the roof top pool. The carpets and room furniture needed a deep cleaning, the drawers and room door were stuck and needed to be slammed shut, despite requesting a non-smoking room the entire hallway and elevator reeked of cigarettes and weed. There... More

While the casino is still vibrant and fun and the slots pay off, the hotel has gone to hell. Our first room had a disfigured bed, a chair with horrible black stains and a frightening stain on the floor. I went downstairs and got a different room. At least there were no floor stains but the chair was still dirty... More

Good experience on my last stay. Upgraded to Bourbon Tower and was pleased with the change. This was our third stop, and out of Harrah's and Caesar's, This night was the best. Better room, service with a smile, and cheerful. Sorry to see this place go.

I was prepared to regret our reservations at Showboat since they will be closing, but we really enjoyed ourselves. There was a long line at check in on a Sunday morning but the line moved very quickly and efficiently. Room was clean and maid service was accommodating and always greeted us with a smile. Starbucks closed but has been replaced... More

Where to start? The carpets were dirty. Smell of weed all through the 20th floor. One elevator worked which we had to wait long periods of time to get on/off elevator. Casino didn't have any of the excitement like other casinos. Price was affordable got sick from house of blues food.

After our stay we found out that this hotel would be closing and it showed. I feel that the employees were trying their best under difficult circunstances. Check in, at 10:30 pm with one person ahead of us took 30 min. We were told that the non-smoking room we had reserved was not available and had to take a smoking... More
