Good service,nice rooms, affordable room rates and very excellent staff! The hotel is 10mins drive to atlantic city and if a.c. hotels are booked this hotel is your best choice.family will enjoy the pool too during summer and breakfast served is also good.

The hotel is nice. You are not paying the high AC prices that you would if you stayed in the city.
Had a king room with the Jacuzzi......was so nice to have.
Continental breakfast was good!
Would definitely stay again.

The stay was so great there that we made a reservation for the next month to come back. The hotel guest room was very clean & this hotel just 8 minutes away from AC.The staff was very nice and the food was great for breakfast.

This will become BEST HOTEL for the area.

Look no further for a great deal. The place was very clean, friendly staff and excellent continental breakfast. And the rate was great. Only 68 dollars for 2 people!!! Do not look anywhere else. This place was great. Only minutes From AC and there are convenience store near by for a late nite snack. They don't even mind if you take the comp breakfast back to your room. It is centrally located near a some nice restaurants,

Price was right but the experience was not!! Had to leave a day early due to my wifes illness, they refused to refund second nights stay after having to leave the first night. Please also beware what you see in the "professional" photos is not what you get!! Bathroom sink had hair in it (gross) and could barely get around the queen size bed the room was so small. Even with calls from Best Western Headquarters they refused to acknowledge we had to leave early.

In a row of motels on the highway in Absecon, NJ area, this hotel stands above the rest. It is not fancy and is the old style of hotel... basically a motel where you can drive your car up to your room door. It is a hike to go breakfast if you are upstairs or in the end of one of the buildings as breakfast is available in the lobby in the office. The staff isn't very friendly... could be a bit more friendly and work on the hospitality and customer service. The front desk employee watched over us like a hawk as we got our breakfast as if we were going to clean them out. It seemed as if they only put out a few items at a time for breakfast- 6 donuts, a few bananas... and then replenish when more people come in.
The rooms were plain, but clean. There were a few hairs on the floor under the sink in the bathroom. The bathroom is a bit dated with its pink tub, etc. The bed was a bit hard and not as comfortable as some other hotels. The towels were very thin, but clean with only 2 sets given.
Overall, the hotel was average with a good price... you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Ask for a 1st floor room to avoid the stairs. Ask for a room away from the highway.
