My wife and I decided to go to Atlantic City for her birthday. We found this Best Western Plus online and decided to make a reservation due to Best Western's good track record.
The hotel was very easy to find, right on 322/40 East. We came from Wilmington, DE and took 40E the whole way there. When we walked in, the hotel was very inviting and looked professional. The front desk agent was very cordial and professional.
We were surprised that our room was outside entry rather than inside the main building. Outside entry rooms usually remind me of motels or lower end hotels. However, the room was very nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable- I fell asleep very easily. The bathroom had a large whirlpool tub/shower that was relaxing. The room featured a kitchen with a microwave, stove, dishwasher, and (almost full size) refrigerator. The TV was in a console that spun around so it could be watched from the couch/dining table area of the room or the bed. The tv was one of the old box models but it worked fine. We had no complaints with the room other than a few small issues with the bathroom (the tub stop didn't seal completely and the exhaust vent was not working). We were able to get a Wi-Fi connection but used our 3G connection instead.
The pool is somewhat small but it is heated. It would be hard to go from one of the outside-entry rooms to the pool and back in the winter. There was also a fitness room and an amazing steam room juxtaposed to the pool room. The website advertises for a jacuzzi but it was covered when we were there.
The breakfast in the morning featured eggs, bacon, waffles, cereals, juices, coffee, fruit, and pastries. It was well stocked and watched. The front desk also has certain frozen and cold items available for sale throughout the day.
The directory in the room seemed dated and out of order. We had difficulty finding a local grocery store (other than the "Asian Food Market" across the street). The directory listed a Pathmark which was somewhere in downtown A.C. but we found the Genaurdi's off of 322 in Egg Harbor Township. Other reviewers mentioned a shuttle to downtown A.C. but we found no evidence that the hotel still does this service.
We went to the Tropicana and the Boardwalk when we took the short drive to A.C. and were not impressed. It was not at all what we expected. In our mind, we thought A.C. would be like Ocean City, MD with Casinos but it was more like downtown Baltimore. Traffic was bad, even for a Wednesday. But this review is for the hotel with which we were happy.
