Reviewed November 6, 2007

Stayed at the HI Express Absecon weekend of Nov 3rd on a Priority Club rewards stay and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. Hotel staff, especially John the General Manager, were very friendly and helpful.
Hotel is fairly new so it has the updated bathrooms and bedding.
Room was spacious, very clean, free wireless internet and had a mini fridge for our food and drinks.
Breakfast was the typical HI Express fare but enjoyable nonetheless.
In summary this is a nice alternative to the overpriced casino resorts in AC and is only a short 6 mile drive down 30 from the Marina properties (Harrahs, Borgata and ttrump Marina.
We would stay here again.

I had a wonderful experience here for the very short time I stayed. The manager, John, is an extremely nice and easy-going guy. The breakfast was fantastic.....neat, clean, and with a good variety! The room we stayed in was HUGE; I think we lucked out on that! Everything was clean and tidy...just as I've come to expect from all HI Express hotels. I will DEFINITELY stay there the next time I head
to AC.

We stayed here for 1 night. The hotel is small, but the location was convenient. It sits right on RTE. 30 in Absecon, where if you take a right out of the lot and go straight it gives you an easy drive into Atlantic City or Brigantine. The room was very clean, with no frills. The four of us (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed in the 2 double bed room. The gentleman at the front desk when we checked out was very friendly. The best part of the stay was the continental breakfast the next morning! It was huge with many offerings of types of bread, cereal, fruit, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, coffee, tea, milk, juices, etc.

Not so good was when we came back from our day at the beach, or room key didn't work. But the ladies at the front desk quickly fixed it. There is a small commuter train (3 cars or less) that goes right by the hotel at different hours of the night. It sounded like a big truck going by and our room was the furthest from the tracks on the top floor. Didn't bother us, but it may bother some.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would stay there again especially if we get the same room.

Stayed here 2 nights. Room was great, bathroom modern and clean. When I reported the bathroom light burned out on the second day, it was fixed immediately. Friendly staff.

Hotel is expensive and not worth it. They called us at 10 am and woke us up to see if we were staying another night. Come on, we went to a concert in AC and were up late. Check out isnt until 1130. They also charge 170 dollars on a Saturday night for musty rooms.

I stayed here only one night coming back from Virginia vacation. I wanted a place close to the pike and to see Atlantic City . This hotel is a mile from the ramp for easy access. It is on the main drag with plenty of restaurants and only a short drive to the boardwalk. This is a new holiday Inn Express. Neat and clean with a very polite staff. This one is very affordable alternative to the rippoffs of Atlantic City proper in a very safe and secure location. The only drawback is that all Holiday Inn breakfast bars nationally has gone downhill. There is now a lack of varieties of fruit and breakfast choices. Very limited. The room was very nice and clean and larger that most of the Holiday Express rooms. The bed and the sheets were fine with a very nice bathroom. I recomend this place to all.

We stayed here for 1 night in March. All the casino hotels in Atlantic City were $350 and up per night. We were going to AC for a concert and didn't want to spend that much for a room that we would hardly be in so we chose the Holiday Inn Express in Atlantic City. The rooms were clean and spacious. The staff was really friendly and helpful.

Great choice if you want to be near A.C., but don't want to pay the casino hotel rates, especially for a Saturday night. We'd definitely stay here again. Its about a 10 minute drive from the hotel to the Casinos, which isn't too bad and its definitely worth it to save a couple hundred dollars.

The breakfast in the morning was pretty good too and it was included in our rate.

We would stay here again for sure, as an alternative to A.C.
