My Mom and I had a girls weekend at The Showboat on Atlantic City and we had a great time. Check-in was quick and I found the people who worked at check-in and other employees who I encountered were very pleasant and professional. The place is huge. Each casino hotel is built around a theme. Showboat's theme is New Orleans... More

We stayed in the New Orleans tower Thursday through Saturday. Our room had two queen beds with a lighthouse and side ocean view. Room was clean and we'll appointed. Check in and check out was quick and seamless. Casino and hotel staff were friendly. Security was very prominent in the casino area. No complaints. This was my second visit and... More

Just stayed here last night, 4/13/14, and I'll just say if it wasn't a comp room I wouldn't have stayed. Check in line was ridiculously long. At first only 3 people were manning the front desk... At check in! Then some more folks came out the back which made the line go faster. Now they don't tell you about the... More

We spent three nights here during the week. Parking was in the self park area, covered parking for $5.00 per day, you take the elevator down to the lobby area. The hotel complex takes in the better part of a block. Check-in was flawless and very quick. Our room was in the Bourbon tower which is on the Boardwalk. Great... More

I wasn't going to stay here, because a number of reviews were unfavorable; however, a close friend stayed here about 2 months ago, and raved about the room and her overall experience. Unfortunately, my experience was nothing like hers. My room was very outdated (unlike her recently renovated room). Overall, the room was dingy, with shabby furniture. As others have... More

This is a good hotel! Its clea, safe, with a friendly staff and decent sized rooms. The casino is large and laid out well. They are plenty of eating options. The casino drink service is pretty good and the drinks are tasty! The location is near the famed STEEL PIER if thats your thing. Overall, I would come back to... More

Stayed here from Saturday to Monday. Room seemed ok upon check-in, but upon further inspection, we found a pile of hair in the corner of the bathroom. Another guest put their room service dishes outside our door on Saturday night and when we checked out on Monday, the dishes were still there. We even had room service on Saturday night... More

Stayed here for one night in a Petstay room. While you do pay a lot extra for it, the convenience of being able to bring our dog is something that you can't find anywhere else on the boardwalk. Check in was easy, although they do charge you an extra $10 if you check in before 4:00pm. The room was spacious,... More
