Always professional, polite and very caring. The... More

Previous commenters have noted how everything looks old, like it's out of the 1980s or 90s. If you don't believe it, just click on the photos -- even their own photos! All the furniture is old and ugly. Nothing in this hotel looks or feels modern. And it's insanely expensive for that you get. The only thing really good about... More

The Port-O-Call is one of the finest resort hotels in the southern New Jersey area. Great location right on the boardwalk with an excellent night time view of the Atlantic City Casino skyline. My room was very clean and the linens and other touches in the room were fresh and new. Housekeeping is the best. Reccommend this hotel to everyone.... More

First time at the Port-O-Call but not the last. You couldn't ask for a better location. Right on the beach and with our ocean view 7th floor room I felt like I was on a ship when sitting on our balcony. Just steps from the ocean but very quiet- just how I like it. Rooms were clean and spacious. Staff... More

We just returned from a 2 day stay. I liked that fact that the hotel was quiet, all except the air conditioner in our room. It was very noisy. We stayed in a standard room. It was small, but nice. It still had a popcorn ceiling, but the hotel is an older hotel. The bathroom was small too. We managed... More

Excellent week in a great family orientated city...it's a dry town so you won't get a lot of young adults who are interested in drinking. Less rowdiness. Hotel is right on the beach...boardwalk...but at the quiet end away from the amusement parks. Very clean and very spacious rooms. Excellent service....rooms were attended to quickly. Typical boardwalk tourist spots but was... More
