“Not too bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

We needed a room to stay for the night in the area. Reading reviews of the hotels in this area made me a little nervous. The Best Western wasn't too bad. It definitely wasn't worth the money we paid, even with our AAA discount, but I guess it could have been worse. I do not think the bed was a queen, although that is what we requested (because there were no Kings available). Water pressure was fine and there were plenty of towels. We missed breakfast because I didn't know it was over at 9:30 a.m. (early for a weekend).

My boyfriend and I were looking to get away for a night to Atlantic City, but weekend prices on the boardwalk were crazy. I was hesitant to stay at some of the less expensive hotels outside of AC after reading scary reviews, and only agreed to this one after checking reviews on several sites. We booked the day before we were planning to go, and neither of us were sure what to expect.

When we arrived at the hotel after a day in AC, it was easy to check in. The front desk manager wasn't overly friendly, but he wasn't unfriendly, so it was fine that he was quiet and efficient. He told me about breakfast the following morning, gave us our keys, and showed us where our room was in relation to the office. The room was very clean and smelled fine, two things I'd been worried about after reading other hotel reviews. It was actually a really large room, with a king bed and a large bathroom. We also had a wet bar and microwave/fridge combo which was nice.

The bed was firm and we slept really well. The bathroom was very clean, and the water pressure was good in the shower. The tub was huge...it was a jacuzzi tub...and while we didn't use it, we were happy to have the extra room in the shower.

The next morning, my boyfriend ate breakfast at the hotel while I slept in. He had waffles and said everything was really good. Checkout was easy as well. We would definitely stay here again if we were only going away for the night. It was a quick 10-15 minute drive to the boardwalk, and it was easy to find.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. Since our last stay, they have remodeled the rooms. Everything was clean and comfortable. My only complaint was that some of the "hot" breakfast items were cold (and this was when they were first brought out, not sitting there for awhile).

My BF and I took a road trip to Cape May, NJ. We spent several hours sightseeing in Cape May. We saw where the "Cape May diamonds" are found. Visited a gift shop and saw the "Cape May diamonds" in settings. Visited the lighthouse, and walked around Washington St. We stopped and had a delicious seafood lunch at The Lobster House. We left Cape May and drove north along the coast to Ocean City, NJ. We headed northwest from Ocean City to Absecon, NJ where we spend the night at the Best Western Garden State Inn.
