“Quick Stay...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

... I just needed a room for several nights. I didn't want to spend a lot and wanted close to the beach.

The staff was pleasant at check in -- they were accommodating for my request for a 'fridge. The room was average and adequate. The only complaint I had was that the closet was very humid -- but I was there during July -- so I'm not sure if this was just because it was so hot outside. It seemed that there was water/moisture pooled on the safe in the closet.

I didn't spend a lot of time in the room -- I was on the beach or boardwalk. I also never took advantage of the continental breakfast offered. Part of the reason is because this property is divided across two city blocks.

I liked the fact that there was off-street parking right outside my room.

In a pinch, I'd stay again. Thank you for the time I was able to spend there this Summer!

Dear Value Guest,

I'd like to apologize foremost for your experience. As we are a property are embarrassed with it as well. We do not condone that type of behavior or quality of guest in our establishment. Unfortunately for us, being an exterior property, it is hard for us to monitor such activities and guests at all times. The group of "girls" you spoke of gave us problems all weekend. Sometimes they have another person check in for them and it becomes hard to distinguish all guests. This is definitely an isolated incident. As I said before, it is behavior that is absolutely not tolerated. This is a clean family establishment that we try to ensure but unfortunately due to our location being on Pacific Avenue in Atlantic City, we can not be full-proof.

We will contact our local law enforcement officials (as we are active members in our community) and as a courtesy to future guests, your input would be greatly valued as well.

We apologize once again but please know your comments and experience will go a long way with us helping improve the quality of experience for our guests.

Please contact me directly at the property, if you will, so I can try to regain your trust as a valued guest.

Stayed at this hotel on 08/31/2012. This hotel is kind of old, wallpapers were falling apart, shower head was dripping waters all night long. Prostitutes going in and out of rooms. Internets were slow, not really worth the price we paid. Plus, the room didn't even got a mini fridge or microwave.

The services were good, the breakfast was good. So many choices.

Would pay a little more to stay at The Chelsea next time.

Room Tip: Pay a little more to stay at a better hotel.

Jerry on night shift is awesome. Thank you having a clean, customer service friendly hotel. The location is awesome! Walk to beach and boardwalk in seconds. Everything in room worked and it was clean. It is well kept for an older beach property. Even the housekeeper was friendly.

Dear Valued Patron,

We appreciate your kind words greatly. As you mentioned, we are an older property and while we can not offer many of the fancy amenities the Big Casinos may offer, we do count on our good-old fashion customer service to be there day and night. We know you have many choices to lay your head, we appreciate that you have given us a chance. Hope to see you soon!

My husband and I stayed at econo lodge because we didn't want to pay the usual high prices at the big casinos...the room wasn't that bad...it was clean, didn't smell bad, the ac and tv worked, and it was great for just sleeping and showering...we spent most of the time outside of the room so it definitely met our needs...yea its not the greatest room ever, but you cannot beat the price...my only complaint was that it was so close to the street that you could hear the outside noise in the morning and the cars on the road, but if you have the ac up, you wouldn't hear it that much...it was right across the street from Tropicana and steps from the boardwalk...I would stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for the second floor!
