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

Stayed at the Showboat AC 7/27/14-7/29/14 in a House of Blues sweet, and it was anything but! First off, the room did not look anything like it did from the pictures. No sunken living room with steps, just one flat level, and no privacy from the room to the shower. There was no door! There were two bathrooms, one that... More

Stayed here on 8/8/14. Attempted to get a good nights sleep, but I coudldn't due to the constant slamming of doors throughout the entire night. The doors to each hotel room are heavy, and make an unbelievable amount of noise when they close. It's Atlantic City... so people are coming and going constantly. I guess I was lucky enough to...

I've stayed at Showboat in the past, but as a guest of someone else where they sprang for the House of Blues Suite and were Platinum Total Rewards Members. This time I just booked a standard King room as a place to crash for the recent Blake Shelton beach concert. The hotel was positively packed, and for good reason. The... More

Given that Atlantic City hotel rooms are way overpriced in the summer, you might expect better than what Showboat offers. That said, when we checked in, we were told that we would get a room with a King but, after I asked, we were given a double with no problems. We were in the Orleans Tower which is the less... More

My family stayed 4 nights this past week at the Showboat. From checking in to checking out, our stay was very nice. Our room were comped through the Total Rewards program. The rooms do need updated and I certainly wouldn't roll around on the carpet in the room. But the beds were clean and comfortable and the bathrooms were fine.... More

Wait about 30 minutes to be checked in because they were poorly staffed. Got to our room the windows were so dirty we barely could see out of it. The sheets were old worn and outdated. After we settled in to our room we went to the casino floor to play some blackjack. There were plenty tables opened and had... More
