“Great place, great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Like many other people, my husband & I wanted to go to Atlantic City without paying the ridiculous prices on the strip. We stayed at Country Inn 6/21/13-6/22/13. The pros: The lobby was really nice and check in was the quickest ever. Maybe it was because I reserved online idk but it took all of 5 minutes. Hallways, public bathrooms, dining area were super clean. The room was awesome for the price. Bright, clean, modern, huge. The king bed was sooo comfortable. The usual amenities coffee maker, shampoo, etc were there with stainless micro and refrig, granite counterspace. The whirpool tub in the bathroom was nice & big. Breakfast was decent, a step above continental. It was less then 10 minutes from AC. It was right off the garden state surrounded by everything.
The cons: The pool could be updated. The tub creaked while taking a shower which was really annoying. But that is not stopping us from returning at all. I already reserved for labor day weekend. Great getaway!

For those who may wish to choose this hotel in the future, I will give some simple pros and cons:

Pros:
Reasonably priced; close (enough) to AC; clean rooms; beautiful lobby; coffee and cookies available 24/7; nice breakfast spread (including eggs, sausages, waffles, etc.). Jacuzzi tub in all rooms. The bed is VERY comfortable.The couple's suite has the Jacuzzi in-room and all other suites have Jacuzzi in bathroom. Kitchenettes in most rooms, full kitchen in others. Directly on White Horse Pike in Galloway/Absecon...you can't miss it.

Cons:

You need a wrench and/or a body builder to manage the controls of the in-room Jacuzzi. I went to call the front desk and alas, there was no cord attached to the phone (I later realized there was another phone). When I went to the desk to address this, the maintenance guy told the guy at the front desk that he couldn't help because he needed to go catch his bus. The guy at the front desk tried to help me verbally, but couldn't really understand what I was saying. He eventually gave me the instruction to "turn really hard"

When we went to the hot tub/pool the hot tub water was ICE cold and the pool water was even colder! Yes, the hot tub is in bad shape...and the water is green...the pool is also in bad shape and both are chipped and damaged at the bottom....I would have been fine with that if the water wasn't so incredibly cold!

Most things were very good -- comfy beds, clean rooms (with fridge and microwave), good free breakfast (including eggs,sausage, waffles and not-bad coffee), strong wi-fi, and a very enjoyable whirlpool in the bath. Price was definitely fair for a weekend stay near AC. Easy shot into casinos area if one has a car; if not (or if there's no designated driver), you shouldn't stay out by the GSP.

However, there was a serious bad -- green water in the hot tub next to the pool. (It was clearly green -- the tile and floors of the pool and hot tub are identical, but the pool water was blue and clear to the bottom while the hot tub was a shade of semi-light lime.) On top of that, staff was not helpful when it was reported -- the attitude was basically first to say it wasn't, then to say, in sum and substance, "nothing I can do." Also, the computer in the business area was broken and staff (same person, same night) had no idea where else one might be able to find a place with computer & printer. (FedEx Office is about 10 minutes away.) Would have been fun if I needed to book, say, luggage on Spirit Airlines (AC's main carrier, where paying at the airport costs a lot more).

These issues take what would have been an easy 4 to what is barely a 3.

After being unable to get a room in Atlantic City Saturday night we stayed here based on TA reviews. Hotel was a good 12+ min. drive ($32 cab ride) from the casinos. Our room was big, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very clean w/ a large 2 person jet tub. ( plenty of hot water..we filled it up twice with no problem) The shower had body spray jets along with the top shower head.
Hotel had a nice indoor pool and hot tube.. Room had microwave, sink and frig. Nice big 38" flat screen TV. Sofa and love seat. AC was a bit noisy .
Free breakfast in the morning did the job..Little but of everything.

Room Tip: Ask for 2nd or 3rd floor rooms on the side and back. Front rooms face the highway and are a little n...

We just stayed at this hotel and loved it! We were looking for a family friendly and safe hotel in Atlantic City (the hotels on the boardwalk are super expensive and within a few blocks of the boardwalk safety can be a concern). We found this lovely hotel about 6 miles away in Absecon. It has everything! Indoor pool and whirlpool (actual hot water), free breakfast buffet (waffles, eggs, potatoes, oatmeal, bagels, cereal, etc), smoke free, free parking and free cookies and coffee in the lobby. The lobby even had a small lending book library. Our room was clean with a kitchenette (counter, sink, microwave, coffee machine and fridge). The beds were clean and comfortable and our room had a large whirlpool tub in the bathroom - the jets felt great! And best of all was the price - great value for the money! Everyone that worked there was very nice. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be staying there again soon!! Great job Country Inn & Suites!

Another choice based on T.A. reviewers' contributions. As others have said, this facility was clean, quiet even though our room faced the Garden State Parkway if you close the window.

The bed was comfortable, breakfast fine with choice of hot, cold, healthy, and not-so offerings.

It was extremely easy to access from the G.S.P. southbound, however you cannot cross White Horse Pike there, all exits are to the right, so coming and going other ways may need some planning. Our Garmin GPS didn't know that, even with the latest maps installed.

We would stay here again.

My wife and I stayed here for a few days while we visited relatives nearby. The entire property is smoke free; everything inside and outside was spotless. We had a room with a king bed and Jacuzzi tub. Like some others found, the diverter knob in the shower was a little hard to turn, but I'd rather the shower stay a shower than turn into a bath while I'm using it. :-) The room also had a microwave oven, refrigerator, bar sink, and kitchen cupboards. A perfect space to make snacks or convenience meals during a short stay. The breakfast room was spacious and kept filled with a large variety of breakfast foods and beverages. After breakfast the freshly baked cookies and coffee in the lobby were always tempting. Pool and exercise room hours were longer than we've ever experienced at a hotel. The staff was most accommodating and friendly, even at the end of a long day! Our first preference will be to stay here whenever we are back in the area. We Love This Country!
