Hop on the weekend casino shuttle three miles to the Boardwalk

After a day at the casinos, some travelers just want a close, affordable place like the Howard Johnson Atlantic City to rest up before returning to test their luck again the next day. Only three miles from the Atlantic City Boardwalk, alive day and night with casinos, shopping, restaurants and family recreation, this budget hotel offers an off-the-Boardwalk price point without sitting too far in the outskirts. Free continental breakfast is available each morning and a seasonal pool is open in summer months.

Highlights
  • Free Internet access
  • Free continental breakfast
  • Seasonal outdoor pool and sun deck
  • Shuttle to casinos, available on Fridays and Saturdays (fees apply)
Rooms

In an effort to be functional, guestrooms feature complimentary high-speed Internet access, a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, alarm clock, iron and ironing board. Televisions include premium cable channels. Some rooms look out to a view of the pool.

Features

Free self parking makes it easy to park the car and leave it. Though there is a charge for the weekend shuttle to the Atlantic City casinos, riding on board alleviates the need to find and pay for parking downtown. Two restaurants offer easy dining options just down the street. Wildwood, NJ and the Boardwalk of Ocean City are among the other family-friendly attractions within a reasonable drive.

Very Pleasant Stay

2 miles from the action in Atlantic City, with shuttles available to and from. A very pleasant family staff, combined with a few locals, and a few immigrant workers. Free continental breakfast and a small, but clean pool. I liked that it was a bit away from the pedestrian foot traffic that is associated with most vacation spots. The location also beckoned me to visit the not so touristy spots, like Pleasantville where I found some fantastic local eateries (like Main Street Pizza) with superb local flavors at reasonable prices. I found some high end eateries and didn't mind paying tourist prices for extravagant lobster dishes and the like, but was very pleased to travel inland for great pizza and Philly cheese steak subs. The room was comfy and clean, so much so that I decided to stay an extra day (at a very reasonable price). Overall, it was a very pleasant stay, I see no reason to stay anywhere else on my next visit.

A nice getaway

My experience at the hotel was good besides they didn't have any wash clothes just hand towels and regular towels, it took a lot to get the room at a just right temperature it was cold at first after keeping the heat on all day and night it then became a cozy room the staff was great when I checked in and out.

BETTER OFF SLEEPING IN YOUR CAR!

This was the worse place ever! Dirty rooms, beds are hard, they gave us two baby pillows and gave us a hard time when we asked for extra pillows. The attendant at night at the front desk was the rudest ever!!! The refrigerator and microwave in the room were dirty and looked like they'd been there since microwaves were invented! dingy doesn't begin to describe them...The bathroom door is rotten from all the water damage and this was in both rooms we were in because we had to switch rooms because the toilet was backed up in the first room we checked in to....terribel place to stay, not even worth what we payed for it, it was cheap, but not even worth THAT!....

POOR ACCOMANDATIONS

our experience was not nearly what we expected. on a daily basis we had to call to unstop the sink & tub. Wash cloths & towels were dingy as if someone washed a car with them to top that off the rooms stunk, dirty carpets and poor, poor customer relations.

dont do it

this was the worst hotel ever. The beds where hard as rocks. The room was clean but had a funny odder to it. And when I took a shower at night the water wouldn't get warm not even the slightest. In the morning it was fine.

Not a great place to stay

The hotel is convenient to Atlantic City casinos, but has something to be desired. We asked for a non-smoking room and we could definitely tell that people had been smoking in there. The room was drab. The towels were dingy and very thin, the tub had rust spots on it, the tv didn't work right, etc. Not a place we would ever stay again. I'd pay the difference and stay at one of the casinos in the future.

Not worth it

My wife and I enjoyed Atlantic city. We went to a show then hit the casino.the hotel wasn't the best. It was ok. Good enough for a overnight stop but not a stay.. The bedding was clean, but the bed was very uncomfortable.. The bathroom was very out dated. The toliet was coming off the floor. The table in the room had stuff stuck onto it.. I would not recommend this place for a extended stay..

not what i expected for the price

My husband and i took a little vacaction to Atlantic City the distance was perfect only 3 miles away from the casinos , but the hotel needs some upgrade in their rooms. The sink was a little stinky and we found some hair inside the blankets the first night that we stayed and it wasnt any power outlet available either. The water from the pool looks really yellow and dirty we couldnt use it!!!!
