The few times that I went to Atlantic City , I never stayed overnight.
It was just a day trip.
This time, I stayed for three nights, Monday through Thursday afternoon when the hotel rates are cheaper.
I went to Atlantic City with my landlady and her mother , who have been here more times than I can count.
Her mother always stayed at one particular hotel – The Showboat.
It’s right on the Atlantic City Boardwalk and used to be owned by Caesars Palace Corporation , but not anymore .
It’s right next door to two other hotel resorts, Resorts Casino and Hotel and the brand spanking new Hard Rock Hotel , which I’ll be talking about in an upcoming post.
The Showboat , like a lot of Atlantic City , has fallen on hard times.
Gone is the casino that used to take up most of the hotel.
There is a miniature golf course and arcade in the hotel for the kids and the kids at heart.
To get upstairs to your room, you have to use your room key.
Once inside your room, you have a great view of the Atlantic Ocean .
Some of the rooms have balconies.
Maybe next time I come to Atlantic City and stay here, I’ll splurge for a room with a balcony.
I had read reviews on line on how this hotel had gone downhill from when it had a casino, but sorry, not sorry, I didn’t notice.
I thought the service the three of us received was excellent .
Even though there was one guest service agent at the desk when we checked in, she was very professional and was very friendly .
The hotel was close enough to the Boardwalk so that I could cross another thing off my bucket list.
I was able to sleep like a baby on the bed, which I thought was very comfortable .
Would I recommend the Showboat Hotel to anyone if they want to stay in Atlantic City ?
I sure would and God willing, if I come back to Atlantic City , this is the place that I’m going to stay at.
Thank you Showboat Hotel for making my stay so enjoyable .
