Stayed three nights here last week. You can tell they are closing it. Seems like they laid off a lot of people already....like the people who wash windows, the people who vacuum the hallways....just cleaning in general. Couldn't take a picture from our window in our room it was so filthy. It was on the outside but we have stayed... More

We recently chose to stay at Showboat because of great online rates. Since its scheduled to close at the end of the summer, we didn't expect much. Yes the property is dates and looks a bit worn but we were thrilled with the value. For a resort room, our room was enormous. The front desk man who checked us in... More

July 19th, What a nice place. Stayed in the Bourbon tower and the room was awesome. Very clean and nice ocean view. Sad to see this place close. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. I wish them all the best.

Check in was fast and easy. The lobby area is very beautiful. Our room was great and was spotless. The only annoying thing was the many groups of young people celebrating their upcoming marriages. Other than that, it was a very pleasurable stay.

The Showboat is closing on Aug 31 apparently, so this review may be unnecessary. We went to this hotel because it was hosting a dance competition my daughter was in. Unless you can get a much better rate at this hotel than others in AC, I would avoid this place. As shown in other reviews, the rugs are old and... More

This is a great place. A little outdated, but always fun. The rooms were clean but again a little dated. The hallway carpet needed replaced. To be honest I think this place is nice than ballys, but I think location is one main reason that won't stay open. The same goes for the revel to far up on the boards.... More

We were in the New Orleans Towers this weekend. The room was dirty,the entertainment center door was missing, the coffee carafe was missing, the sheets smelled like Jack Daniels. The food was aweful.We left the hotel to get food to eat. Kudos to the Pizza place on the board walk. Stale bagels,warm soda, and no flavor.

Nice location especially for families. Close to Steel Pier and beach. Allow lots of time for check-in as it took about 40 minutes just to get through the line. Room was clean with the exception of a soda bottle behind a night table. Friendly staff. Too bad it is closing in soon.

Showboat is a great hotel, very friendly service, right in the boardwalk. Unfortunately they will be closing it's doors on August 31st. I stayed there last week. From the moment I arrived until my departure, I have nothing to say but cumpliments to the service I received. Sayed and Maryanne at Front desk were absolutely delightful. Susanne at the buffet...
