“A secret get away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Here in May and its rather chilly,but my family and I are having a relaxing time. There isn't a lot of ppl and the resort is very quiet. My kids seem to be enjoying the peaceful moment in the pool. The aquatic area is nice and clean with a lot of chairs, tables, and lounge chairs available. Our room is excellent and is a side view of the ocean. I really love that the heat here in the room is not dry. Most hotel room's heat makes me stuffy, but I haven't experience that here. We ordered pizza from the Pizza Hut here on site which is located on the 7th floor along with another restaurant. So far our mini vacation has been wonderful.

I am a Chairman's Club owner at the Flagship and Chairman's Club ownership has greatly improved my stay. I visited in April for 5 nights. Owners can stay at the resort without using their timeshare week. Being a Chairman's Club member has many discounts and perks which made staying here much better than in the past such as cheaper daily rates, 30% discount on food purchased in the restaurant, priority pool usage for club members only, free DVD rentals, 10% discount in store, free movie entrance, priority seating on the shuttle. These perks made the stay nicer.

The resort has made improvements by installing a new elevator system that is faster and more efficient. The rooms have been renovated and include granite touches. The free shuttle stops at many casinos now instead of just two and it runs more frequently. It also now stops at the Walk and the Borgata. One sad note is that the boardwalk by the Flagship has been totally destroyed by Hurricane Sandy and no longer exists. But the strip itself seems to have been unaffected. The area around the Flagship is still desolate as ever. If you want a nice short getaway to Atlantic City the Flagship is ok, but its much better is you are an owner.

Room Tip: Higher floors have great views.

We have stayed at the Flagship almost every fall since 2001. A few years in between we traveled to different locations, but since 2010 we have come back every year for a week's stay, including this coming September. We have always found it convenient, the staff very friendly (especially John, who works at the concierge desk) and have always been happy with the accommodations we received. We usually park on the street as we like to go in and out several times a day, never had a problem there. It is only minutes away from shopping, gambling, great restaurants. While a part of the area around the Flagship has not been built up, there are lovely homes to the north of it and Brigantine is just across the water. We will miss the boardwalk this year that was so badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy as my husband always found it so relaxing to sit out there, throw hin his fishing line, and chat with all the locals that fish there. The elevators can be slow, but not to the point that we had to wait too long. We haven't experienced the new elevator system yet. We're on vacation when we're there, so we're never in a huge hurry. Looking foward to this coming September when we go back.

Room Tip: Units facing Brigantine on a higher floor offer the best views. Just stunning!

Honestly, I was very worried about how our timeshare exchange at the Flagship would go, based on the reviews on this site (which I have always found very reliable). Never having been to AC, my expectations were low, but our trip was to scout colleges for our daughter, so I knew we would not be spending much time at the resort. Overall, we were pleasantly surprised and this was a great home base for our family of four.

We arrived in the evening and parked on the street prior to check-in. Despite the $7 per night parking fee in the structure, we felt more comfortable parking there. We completed the property's survey and one for Interval International and received two nights of parking free. Check-in was fast and easy and we waved off the anticipated timeshare presentation solicitation with very little hassle.

Our view from the 12th floor was fantastic – out over the ocean and back toward the hotel/Boardwalk. The huge balcony could be accessed from the living room or the bedroom. The area was obviously in the process of gentrification prior to the economic downturn and last year's hurricane, so the surrounding area is a mixed bag. There is an empty lot next to the building and there must have been a boardwalk just across the street at one time. AC, in general, seemed to be less safe than I would have liked.

While the furnishings are very dated at the Flagship, our one-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath unit was spacious and clean. Two big closets held all of our belongings, though the door configuration in the bedroom was kind of awkward and right in front of the closet. It was no big deal to wash the dishes as we used them – we do that at home – and there was a nice big sponge, paper towels and dish detergent. The sofa mattress was pretty bad and the main living area should have had at least one more light. TV reception was fine and they had plenty of channels, including HBO.

Cleaning staff should check garbage more than once per week and they really should check the common hallways more frequently – there were smashed crackers on the 12th floor carpet for two days.

Our son only used the pool area once, but it was adequate and nicely heated. Towels are provided. There are activities for the kids (which we did not take advantage of) and the game room seemed fine. The fitness room was nice: it had enough equipment, chilled water, several TVs and a great view of the ocean. There is a convenient shuttle service to the shopping area and Boardwalk/casinos. This is very nice, since there is metered parking and you do have to pay at the casino parking structures.

Now, a word about those elevators. The system makes sense in theory, but certainly fails in practice. Schindler (the lift company) has even produced a video that runs on a screen at the ground level talking up the benefits of the system. You punch in your floor and the system tells you which elevator to use. I am not sure if it is because the staff uses the guest elevators (we saw quite a lot of that) or if the system is just flawed, but it does take a while to board. This is an issue that needs to be addressed. The weekdays were not as bad as the weekend when the elevators tended to be more crowded. Fortunately, we were never in a major hurry when leaving the building.

All things considered, the Flagship was perfectly fine and great for our particular type of vacation.

Thank you for your review and we certainly do take suggestions from these reviews very seriously. The elevators are a new addition to our resort and they are improving with each passing week. We are currently in the process of adding a 4th elevator to the new system to help alleviate traffic during the busier times of the week. I hope you enjoyed the local schools you visited and wish your daughter luck wherever she ends up going to college.

Although my stay was not long enough (they never really are...) I had a chance to enjoy the Flagships beautiful resort/hotel. The room was "just enough" to enjoy with double beds, pull-out couch, kitchenette with anything I needed. I would have loved to have stayed longer and just basked in the sunlit view of the ocean off the balcony, but perhaps the next time! The hotel is located away from all the constant activity that the Boardwalk offers, but in walking distance to the same excitement. If I could just pull myself away from the whirlpool......

Hello Jeanette!

I am so glad you could enjoy our resort, if only for a fleeting moment. I know there is an endless amount of activities to do in and around Atlantic City, but relaxing is a tough activity to pull yourself away from. In either case, I hope you have an excellent summer and we hope to see you soon!

You can measure the value of a romantic vacation by the look on your wife's face as she peers out of your suite, turns around and says you out did yourself. Our suite was perfect. We were on the 22nd floor facing the Atlantic Ocean and Brigantine NJ. In the morning we watched the fishing boats go out to sea and return in the evening with their catch. If I were to complain about one thing, it would be the elevators. Even with the upgrades they are horrendous.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ocean and Brigantine NJ are breath taking.

Hello,

Thank you for your review of our resort. In addition it is nice to have a place to stay just a straight shot down the Atlantic City Expressway. Not only will you be able to enjoy those magnificent views, but enjoy the continuing upgrades that are being made to the elevators. Have a great day and we hope to see you again soon!

Time share and time wasted. We went to listen to a scpheel about the RCI Time Share program. The sales person was very clear and friendly and the presentation was brief enough, 60-75 minutes. The model rooms were very nice. The rest of the place was a dump. Elevators, a modern convenience of our time took FOREVER. Some new design where you request the floor and the monitor tells you which car (A-D) to wait for. And wait you will. Once inside, it will take you to the floor that you requested before you boarded... The buttons on the inside were covered with sheet metal? The 27th floor was oddly arranged, 2703 was next door to 2717, the window in the hallway overlooking Atlantic City and the ocean was filthy, smudged and greasy. The room was appointed with a small kitchen and supplies that were unappealing and questionable. There was a dirty towel in the kitchen sink and another on the bathroom floor. It felt like a Motor Lodge, not a hotel. The beds were comfortable enough; the bathroom was very nicely decorated, recently updated. The room smelled of bleach/cleaning supplies when we entered. The balcony had bird crap on one side that was clearly visible from inside the sliding glass doors. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Checking in and out was quick and easy. I would highly recommend staying at ANY of the casinos...
