So my BF and I decided at last minute to take a drive to AC. We had no clue where we were gonna stay. Figured we would find something when we got down there. So nearing our adventure I pulled up hotels and we found the showboat. I thought the place was closed! But reading I found it had just... More

The Showboat recently reopened less than two weeks ago minus the casino and three dining options Of course there are bugs that need to be worked out, especially as this was only there second weekend open. First the cons. A post on their facebook page says that the 872 rooms have been "updated". I don't' know how many rooms have... More

The casino is closed, but now the hotel is back open. Just the Bpurbpn Tower. The place looks a but empty, but a few new restaurants on premises. Looks like 150 on Friday, and 350 plus fur Saturday night.

I have went to showboat early this summer and my room was filthy. There was wine spilled all over the carpet, half of the lights didn't work, and room service doesn't come every day. It's location was the best thing about the hotel. It was the cheapest hotel on the boardwalk. No surprise that this place closed down.

We found the hotel to be a great place to stay. One night when it began to get so loud in our hallway that we couldn't sleep, a simple call to security (who were very pleasant!) solved the problem within minutes. We thought the buffet was a great value for the price. Dessert dessert and more excellent dessert! The price... More

We were here for a convention. The heads of the convention paid a lot of money for this event, the showboat was not helpful with set up and pre event objectives. the lobby escalator and public areas were filthy . The bar on the first floor had a great special drink sale going on , most of us went there.... More
