Great place to stay.

Our stay at the Showboat was very very nice. We did not use the pool but the hotel was very clean. Very convenient for eating and we had a great time at the casino. Again we were very satisfied with the room and the friendly staff.

because showboat is on the boardwalk, there is dining, shopping and all right at your feet. i would recommend sneakers for walking because showboat is on the end so if your interested in walking the whole boardwalk from showboat to other end its a good 15/20 min walk.

Nice Atlantic City boardwalk location

We were very pleased with the hotel. Upscale, very clean rooms. Casino, restaurants & entertainment on site. Unfortunately since we stayed mid-Sept, House of Blues, which is on-site, was not open until Thurs for food or entertainment. However, a couple mid-range restaurants were available. The hotel is on the boardwalk and the beach is right there, which was a plus as the pool was closed for the season. (They only have an outdoor pool). The price was better just after the high season, but the down-side was less attractions being scheduled - both at this hotel and the other large ones in the area.

Very Family Friendly

It was very customer friendly. From check in to check out, everyone on staff was efficient and friendly. I liked the bathroom because it had a separate area for the toilet. Our room was by the elevator, and the elevator car was making a grinding noise. Not enough to keep us up, but it was a bit annoying. Beach accomodations were good, nice not to have to pay for going on the beach. The shuttle was great...all in all a good trip. We had a great time, and hope to come back soon.
