It's good!

I took a trip to Atlantic City, NJ on 3/15 & 3/16, and made a reservation with this website, which I found good deals that other websites didn't offer. I took the 3 hour bus to AC, and than took another shuttle to the Hotel. The room is pretty clean and nice, and you can choose either smoking or non-smoking room. The front-desk stuffs are very nice, too. They always ask if you need something else during the check-in and check-out. Overall I had a very nice trip, and a good sleep in the hotel, too!

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.

Fun Mardi Gras Atmosphere

We enjoyed the colorful and fun party atmosphere of the Showboat. The casino floor had lots of slot and game choices, although they seemed tight--we never got a machine to let us play on very long. Its more fun if there's a little more give and take with the machines. The room was wonderful and ready for us when we arrived. It was clean and comfortable, nicely decorated and good amenities. I happened to be on crutches (not a planned event for this trip) so the soaking tub felt real nice on my swollen foot. Complimentary wheel chairs were also a nice option for me (or scooter rental if needed) and handicapped accessibility was very good. The cafes had good breakfast options and the House of Blues was good for a casual dinner. We were disappointed that the steak restaurant was not open during our stay so we went to Gallagher's in another casino. All in all the stay was a fun experience. The shuttle service between the Harrah's resorts was was a big plus and the boardwalk was very impressive.

Try as many different restaurants as possible--there are so many options for good steaks and ethnic selections. For a great hamburger, try the Burger place at the Taj Mahal--expensive, (just the burger is $10) but big and tasty>

Okay

for the price this hotel is fine. It's location is at the end of the boardwalk so depending on what you're going for it may or may not be so good. The hallway carpets were filthy which took away from it. However the room itself was fine. I would stay there again.

Great Hotel in Atlantic City

The Showboat was very comfortable and affordable. The room had a king size bed, a work desk, table, couch, and end tables. I liked the marble floors in the bathroom, the his and her sinks, and sepearte toilet area. The casino was more layed back than most we visited. Its only a block from th Taj Mahal and right on the Boardwalk.
