The front desk reps can range from very nice to extremely rude. It's an older hotel that is kept clean. The beds are pretty comfortable but I had trouble sleeping - the walls and doors are far from soundproof and the faint smell of moisture and cigarettes pervades. I wasn't expecting much but I think next time I'll spend the extra $ and just go for Tropicana or Ocean or just pick an air bnb in the nearby Abescon. Also there is no casino and only 1 bar so not a "fun" place to stay. Also very little options for food. Close to the beach though.

Participated in a fitness event at this hotel and the location, restaurants and view was spectacular. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Nice fridge, but the lighting could have been better and no microwaves in the room. A little noisy when other people are in and out of the room partying, but expected in Atlantic City. Friendly staff and overall pleasant for the price.

I loved it. I was expecting a loud, smoking bustling casino. Instead, I experienced a quite (casino is closed), non smoking friendly experience. Not a fan of large crowds due to COVID-19. If you are looking for a new hotel with all the fancy upgrades, this hotel is not for you. Showboat is a Classic - old school with a mini fridge & a coffee pot. It’s just a few steps to the beach & the amusement park rides. It has a great gym & fun arcade. You can play a handful of games for $20. Hard Rock is next store to satisfy your need to gamble & to dine at a fancy restaurant. Lovely casino. The Sugar Factory is next to Showboat which is amazing for dining . The Sugar Factory’s menu features signature items such as savory crepes, salads, monster burgers, insane milkshakes and specialty pizzas. Enjoy your stay!

I booked through Showboat Reservation for 3 rooms, quoted $111.17, I said Expedia offered $94.38, Jason said he could honor the lowest comparable price. When I arrived the front desk, receptionist said Hotel couldn't do anything about it. I t was a lie. At the front desk, we got approval for 12:00 noon checkout. Receptionist didn't tell us the room key would be disabled after 11:00 am. So we have to make a trip to front desk to get 3 rooms keys to be able to reenter our rooms to take out our luggage. There was only one receptionist for checkout, waiting time is longer.
