Second time here in the Atlantic City area, and both times I've been lucky enough to get a condo at the Fairway Villas. This is a Marriott Vacation Club (timeshare) property on a golf course, so it's not exactly a traditional "hotel". The rack rate is pretty steep and you cannot get a room during summertime on a nightly basis, but in the off-season when they mark rooms down it can be an incredible deal.
The condos are clean, with a good layout (kitchen/living room down the center, two bedrooms- one on each side). Gas fireplace, jetted soaking tub in the master, King bed in each bedroom, washer/dryer in the unit (free- they leave a box of detergent, just ask if you need more) and fully furnished with silverware, plates, glasses, a dishwasher, you name it.
The property has a good-sized central building with a large swimming pool. Clean and well-managed. It sits amidst a pretty golf course and is quiet.
My unit was quite clean, with only very minor signs of wear and tear (lots of families use the property during the summertime, as it's only a 2-2.5 hour drive from Manhattan). Bathroom very clean, plenty of hot water, no noticeable mold/mildew.
Overall a very, very pleasant property. If I had a family and/or was into golf, I could see staying here at a "normal" (ie, non-discounted) rate. As it is, if you're here for business (there is a large government facility for the agency I work for) and can get the business rate, this is a screaming good deal if you don't want to be surrounded by the casino atmosphere of the big joints with gamblers in Atlantic City proper. (But those are only a 15-20 minute drive away when you want to go play...)
