After staying and visiting the Atlantic City area several times, I decided I'd rather stay out of the "city" itself. I decided to try the Best Western Atlantic City West Extended Stay & Suites in Pleasantville, New Jersey. It is surrounded by many stores, Kmart, Sam's Club, Family Dollars, etc., as well as local restaurants and fast food places such as McDonald's, Burger King, and Taco Bell. The first night we stayed, we had two double beds, a full sized pull out couch, big t.v., table with seating for four and a full kitchen. When I say full kitchen, I mean oven, stove, dishwasher, full size fridge, eating utensils, plates, and even baking needs. Every room comes with a kitchen, however, suites have slightly smaller refrigerators. Anyway, the well decorated, clean room accommodated five of us easily. Even the bathroom was big and clean.
I read online the hotel had a pool, sauna, whirlpool and fitness center but really didn't expect much. When we walked into the pool area and saw a large clean warm pool with plenty of seating around, a nice big whirlpool, steamy sauna and an enclosed fitness area to the side. I couldn't believe we were actually getting all these amenities for a little over $200 on a Saturday night with 5 people. We then checked out the local area and were only 15 minutes to the downtown area... the beach, boardwalk, shopping and of course casinos.
The beds were comfortable, air conditioner worked great and we even had a complimentary breakfast the next morning with waffles, cereals, fruits, pastries, bagels, orange juice and coffee. We enjoyed the hotel so much we checked out but didn't want to go home so booked it for another night. We requested a non-smoking room but when we arrived back at the hotel was told they only had smoking rooms so were give a complimentary upgraded to one of the several "Jacuzzi room" suites. These rooms are like mini apartments and cost $20 on average. They still have the kitchen, still have a table and chairs, but has one full size sofa bed and one queen size bed. The room is "divided" by a small three foot wall where the t.v. is on a swivel stand so it can be viewed in my different areas. The bathroom had a large Jacuzzi, hence the name.
Overall, we loved this hotel and have gone back once since the two night stay in August. We had a suite again and everything was perfect. The staff was always helpful and courteous. The one and only thing I didn't like was the fact the suites aren't connect to the hotel. They are off to the side so you actually have to walk outside to the pool that is accessible with or without walking through the hotel. This probably isn't a problem in the summer, but the last time we went it was starting to get cold out so we had to run from the pool to our room, about 15 feet depending what room you get, pretty cold. This is of course only a "problem" if you get a suite and go swimming. Other than that, we look forward to going again.
