Budget motel, dissapointed with having to pay for parking nothing mentioned when we booked, suspicious it had to be in cash too. Rooms OK bit shabby and dated but we expected that. Location was good.

Fair enough it's only a motel and it's pretty budget but I don't really think that's an excuse for a room being so dirty. Had to wipe clean insides of drawers before being happy enough to put clothes in them. The toilet was broken and upon reporting this to reception they handed us a plunger....
Generally felt pretty unsafe as well as unclean and was the most depressng place i'd ever stayed. To put that into perspective, stayed in hostels most of the trip and they were all lovely. On the plus side, great location, less than five mins walk from boardwalk, beach, Resorts & Taj Mahal casinos, and am fully aware it could have been a lot worse. But on the whole definitely wouldn't stay again.

Great location, 3-5 min walk to boardwalk & across from resorts casino. If you are on a budget and don't mind a worn down motel than you can stay here. Otherwise, pay a little more and stay somewhere else. This place needs a definite upgrade, as the walls in the room are stained and cracked and the carpet is starting to rip in some places. The cont. breakfast is two small boxes of muffins and danishes.

My friend and I visited Atlantic City last weekend of June and we stay in here. Location is unbeatable, only 5 minutes walking distance from the boardwalk, plenty places to eat off the boardwalk, decent size parking in front of the motel. Room was decent size with king size bed, and what is most important clean. It seems run down a bit and there was weird smell lingering in the room.

Very friendly staff. Great location. Price is unbeatable. Free coffee. Steps away from beach and casino. Oh and the new look is great. Large walking showers. They upgraded the property and kept prices the same
. You can't beat that.

I barely know where to start when I begin to describe my experience at this A.C. hellhole to people, but I tend to focus on one incident in particular, as I think that the experience itself and the way it was handled by hotel staff, hotel ownership and Choice Hotels in general speaks volumes.

My wife and I planned a 3 day, 2 night mini vacation to Atlantic City because that’s about as much time off as I could get, being in restaurant management. We were there Saturday through Monday. It was Sunday evening and my wife and I were about to go out on the town for the night to hit the casinos and overindulge on booze and food, like anyone spending time in A.C. would be doing. Since this was OUR FIRST VACATION SINCE OUR HONEYMOON (I want to emphasize how important this little time we had together was), we began to “get intimate.” In the midst of said intimacy, a noise came from the doorway and a mere second or two later, before we could cover ourselves or hide in the bathroom or even switch to a less compromising position/try to strike our best poses, a total stranger and his wife KEYED INTO OUR ROOM!!! My wife screamed in terror and attempted to cover herself with her hands, the stranger and his wife said “Oh boy!” and slammed the door shut, and I stood between them in all my natural glory, dumbfounded.

My wife ran to the bathroom in tears. As I tried to tend to her and deal with the fact that this Judd Apatow cinematic moment had actually occurred in my reality, my room phone rang, and it was THE GUY AT THE FRONT DESK ASKING WHAT I WAS DOING IN THE ROOM!!! This had just happened to me, and I was getting yelled at and questioned by the front desk. For serious.

I threw on clothes quickly and marched to the office with all of my reservation and check-in paperwork in hand. Of course, I got to stand awkwardly next to “the stranger” and his wife, unsure if I should ask them to pay for the show they got or maybe to get naked and return the favor. I was, understandably I think, furious with the hotel and the clerk already, but it got worse. He informed me that I was not in the computer as being checked in, and that there was no paper filing of me being checked in, despite the computer printout I had IN MY HAND from when I checked in as well as another slip signed by hand by the clerk with whom I had checked in. The attending clerk said that the paperwork must have been misfiled by whatever clerk had checked me in, hence the room registered as vacant in the system and key cards were issued to the couple who had entered my room. I explained what had just happened again, that two strangers were given access to my room and had seen my wife and I naked, and that my wife was in the room crying and saying that she wanted to leave Atlantic City altogether not more than 32 hours after we had arrived.

His solution? He would refund our money for THAT NIGHT ONLY, and we could check out and be free to FIND OURSELVES ANOTHER PLACE TO STAY FOR THE NIGHT. At 9pm on a Sunday in Atlantic City, we could pack up all our stuff, check out, and go find another room somewhere else. But the $200 plus we spent on the room for Saturday night? That was not changing.

I am a pacifist for the most part. Most men, most people in general, may have sprung to violence over this or gotten the A.C. police involved or something. I had to walk away from the office at that moment because I was literally ready to hospitalize the clerk and I didn’t want to cap off this magical evening by going to jail. I went back to my wife instead to try to calm her down and convince her to stay the night so our “vacation” wouldn’t be TOTALLY ruined. She didn’t really want to go out anymore, nor did she feel safe in the hotel OR safe leaving our belongings in the room while we were out, but she eventually conceded that she didn’t want to have to look for a new room at this hour or get on the highway for the 4-hour-plus ride back home. The night was ruined, however (obviously). She made a half-hearted attempt to walk the boardwalk with me, we slept with every lock on the door set, and she wanted to leave FIRST thing in the morning for home.

I contacted Choice Hotels corporate about the matter that next day, and I was informed that they do not deal with claims themselves, but rather would forward the issue the owner of the hotel and that he would have 14 days to respond to me. That was all they could do.

The owner did respond in writing about 2 weeks later, but I think that the response made things worse for me. He stated that all of this was the fault of the clerk who checked me in. The clerk was new and he had been reprimanded (not what I was looking for). I was refunded for the night in question only (which was about $60), and again, Saturday’s $200 charge remained. I was also invited to come back to Atlantic City for ONE FREE NIGHT, provided that it was MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY and that I did so WITHIN A MONTH.

Some/most people probably would have called Choice Hotels corporate back and demanded a full refund, screaming and kicking it up the ladder until they got justice. Others would have called their bank, explained the situation and disputed the charge (my wife works for our bank, so I’m sure that we could have dealt with it that way). I considered all options and more. Honestly, the whole thing made me so disgusted (not to mention that I was back to work and had no time to deal with it) that I opted instead never to stay at a Rodeway Inn or any Choice Hotel property again if I could avoid it. If this is how they do business, they won’t be seeing my money ever again.

Plainly put, the ONLY advantage to this place is that it is almost directly on the Boardwalk (maybe 2 minutes walk, tops) and pretty much right in the middle of the Boardwalk as well. The prices the casinos are charging for rooms are the same or less than this place, though (specifically the Tropicana and Resorts, the latter of which is RIGHT on the Boardwalk and RIGHT next to this hole!), so you’re better off just staying there and probably even getting a meal or something included in your stay. I didn’t realize how cheap it was to stay at the casinos when I booked my trip. Even if the casinos were more expensive, though, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!

Forget about someone seeing my wife and I nude. What if someone keyed into our room and robbed us blind while we were out? What if someone keyed in and attacked us in the middle of the night? Whatever “value” you might feel you are getting by booking a room here is negated by the generally poor conditions of the place and this lack of privacy/safety.

This hotel was absolutely disgusting!!! The rooms were filthy, the carpet was stiff and hard, the beds caused back pain and the bathroom was worse than one at a gas station. The tub was rotted, the drain was clogged and the tiles were dirty that I felt dirtier after the shower. The worst part is that I was not alone...I had plenty of cockroaches to keep me company, it felt like that movie "Joe's Apartment". So needless to say I didn't sleep much. The one good thing is that it was close to the Boardwalk...the problem there is you had to walk through a very unsafe warzone to get there. Everytime I walked from the Casino to the motel, I felt like a sitting duck and felt at any moment I would be attacked, robbed, or abused. Do Not stay at this place unless your only other alternative is to sleep in the street.

The room smelled of a fine used carpet from the 1940's. There was a nice used bar of soap left in the bathroom. A few scholarly gentlemen were selling goods out of the parking lot.

I read many many bad reviews about this motel, but I didn't have much money to spend in a hotel just for a night in Atlantic City, but wanted also close to the boardwalk... then I found this motel. It's very very simple, but it's clean and the room is huge! With frige and tv... a good shower... 2 min walking from the beach and the casinos... I didn't need much more than this! So I recommend!!!
