We stayed at the Watson Regency Suites on 1/19/13 to attend a concert in Atlantic City. I was very pleased when I entered the room. The place was clean. We had a room facing the pool. I enjoyed the pool. I did some laundry and some of the machines were inoperable. The manager was very accomodating with giving me back the quarters I lost in the washing machine. Upon returning to the room, I went into the kitchen to prepare a meal before going to the concert and a roach ran across the counter. I freaked and my first thought was there are roaches running around this place. Now I do not have roaches in my home and my feeling was if you see one, there may be more and I knew I could not stay there if this was the case. I called the front desk and the manager came immediately. He had this solemn look on his face. He told me there has never been a single roach ever at the hotel and asked me what did I want him to do. In disbelief I responded get some roach spray and spray the area. He left and came back with a can of roach spray and sprayed the area. I told him that I hope this was an isolated incident. He appeared to be annoyed with me. I was very uncomfortable afterwards and was reluctant to use the cooking facility. While checking out the next day, I mentioned the incident to the girl at the front desk. She had the audacity to tell me that there has never been a roach at the hotel and in fact, there aren't any roaches in the entire Ocean City area. Now mind you she was the one that took the call the night before and did not sound surprised when I reported the incident. Not once did I get an apology from the staff. I like the hotel and may consider staying there in the future. However, I will definitely come armed with a can of Raid.
