It'll do

If you are looking for a cheap hotel in Atlantic City, this one will do the trick. I came with a couple of friends to go gambling for the weekend, and this place worked for us. No it isn't the nicest place in the world, and it was a bit noisy...but for the few hours we crashed here, it did the trick. You are an easy walk to the Taj and Resorts casinos, and also there are plenty of cabs around and a bus to take you to any other place you want to go. If you are looking for a cheap place you can go to when you are done gambling at 4am, this will work for you.

Weekend getaway on a budget.

While staying, we visited casinos, dined at a variety of restaurants, and shopped at the outlets. Free parking and wifi internet were pluses, as well as access to transportation. Jitney stop is located just outside the cafe doors. Convenient when bad weather prevents walking to attractions. The experience was comparable to other hotels in the same price range.

Take advantage of the cafe next to the lobby. Great place for breakfast after a long night. Serves breakfast all day. Open from 7 am to 4 pm.

You get what you pay for

We have stayed in many hotels in A.C. before, but this was the worst location yet.We felt very uncomfortable leaving our car for the night in this area and we were awake most of the night between the noise coming from the hallway and being fearfull of the clientelle staying there and visitors walking around the hotel.Never again!

Howard Johnson in AC, NJ

The Howard Johnson is located near most of the major casinos in Atlantic City. It was easy to get trasportation. Location was a major Plus. As for the hotel itself, the bedroom was clean and of descent size for 4 people. The bathrooms were clean but very small. It was difficult for the four of us to get ready in such a small space. Also, the toliet stopped working which was a defiante inconvience to us although it was eventually fixed with he help from the hotel staff. Another inconvience for us was that there was no refriderator in the room. We had no place to put our drinks. Overall, I would give this hotel 2 Stars. It wasn't the worst hotel I've stayed at, but far from the best. Mediocre.

1 nite in AC and the world's your oyster

First of all i paid $75 per night. It is very close to casinos, i was walking everywhere. It is a good price for that location. Stuff was friendly but not super extra friendly. Just ok and nice. I can't complain. My room was clean, had a cool electronic safe, TV, iron, iron desk, bathroom and inside whole bunch of towels, shampoo, soaps... But in tv remote battery didnt work. I was lazy and i didnt ask stuff for new battery. Bathroom had in few spots small fungus, but its hard to notice them. Except this, bathroom was very nice. Only stupid invention was that to place toilet paper hanger under the sink. So inconvenient. And windows were on the hallway so everybody can see whats going on in your room, till you close the curtains. Anyway for that money its really worth!

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Most of the casinos are on the walking distance. Food places are all over Atlantic Ave (1 block) but most of them open in the afternoon. Looks like everybody in AC gambling till the early morning, go to sleep and wake up in the afternoon.
