"sad to see it go"
I was extremely skeptical about staying in this hotel because it seemed dated but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel employees were great and my room was spacious and clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay"
Everything was great. It's sad they are closingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay at Showboat"
We only had a one night stay and it was great. Got a fantastic rate on Hotels.com. Very sad the hotel is closing at the end of the month. Had a longer than usual wait to check-in but other than that, no complaints.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Too bad it closes tomorrow."
Was pleasantly surprised how good it was with the closing just days away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had never stayed at the Showboat before and I am not typically a person who gives a bad review. When I checked in and went to my room, I found a room that was not taken care of by housekeeping. There were towels, sheets, and condoms all over the room. I went down to the customer service desk and made my complaints. The lady was very kind and offered […] me an upgraded room and a $50 credit to be used toward room service or any services in the hotel. We chose to use this toward room service. I was charged the $50+ to my credit card. This was a lousy first impression and this is not somewhere that I would recommend to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Weekend in AC"
Showboat is a very nice Casino hotel. Too bad it's closing soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Considering that this hotel is closing for good..."
I have to commend all the staff for maintaining their professionalism while knowing that this hotel is closing its doors to the public this week. It was kinda strange knowing that a perfectly functioning establishment is closing permanently. I had a great time and I hope that maybe Trump will purchase the building so that it doesn't go to waste.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was my second time visiting Atlantic City within the last 6 months and the conditions of this hotel room were horrible. The tub was backed up, the phones didn't work and the room dirty. When I went down stairs the staff stated they would send someone up to fix everything except the phone. The phone would have to be fixed Monday. When the handy […] man came up to the room, he replaced the toliet seat and pull enough hair from the tub drain to make a wig. The tub was dirty and had hair on the walls. I asked if anyone was coming up to clean the tub and he stated he didn't know. Explains why their revenue has dropped and they are forced to close. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was disgusting. Lamp was only lighting and shade was torn And carpeting was dirty and stained. Carpeting was peeling off. Left this hotel early and the hotel wouldn't let us change rooms. Will never stay or visit AC againGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"$300 a night! Really!!"
Small mold on shower curtain. Drain too slow , resulting in ankle deep water after shower. Light switch broken off next to bed. Guessing they don't care, cause there're closing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Going way too soon"
My husband and I needed to get away for a few days. We chose the Showboat because of the rates. We weren't sure what we were getting based on some of the reviews. To our surprise the room was clean, but a little outdated. The best feature was the bathroom. The worst feature was the dirty windows. I would stay again if it were not closing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
WHAT IS THE SENSE, HOTEL IS CLOSING SEPT 2,2O14Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wonderful theme, great rooms, very good pricing, everything went smoothly. The hotel was wonderful, even though some aspects felt dated, but I wasn't really spending much time in the room vs the actual casino part. It's sad to see it go, but considering it's quite a walk from midtown and the shops, I can understand why that part of town is struggli […] ng. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very satisfied with the overall look and convenience of the hotel. Its very unfortunate that this hotel will close at the end of August.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Family and friends stayed two nights. We liked our rooms and the ambiance. Food choices were good esp. The House of Blues cafe and Earl of Sandwich. We didn't like seeing sleezy dancers in one area Sat. night. Pool area needimprovements.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One for the road"
We've stayed at the Showboat several times. The casino is really clean and the food at the New Orleans buffet is superb! They allow pets so if that's an issue you might not want to stay. They are rumored to be closing on August 31st so if you are in the area you might want to check them out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My friends and I come down every year for the DJ EXPO that is held in Arlantic City. Until this year we always stayed next door at the Taj, but since our other friends are usually booked in your hotel we decided that this year we would stay a little closer them. Plus we like visiting the Earl of Sandwich, we look forward to it because we can't get it […] in Ohio. Now we understand that your casino will be unfortunately closing at the end of this month and we figured we would still receive good service, but we didn't. At first we were greatful that your manager allowed us to keep our reservation after there was a misunderstanding with the deposit we needed to stay even though I had paid for the room in full before checking in. And we understood that our privliges were taken away because we had used a cash deposit. However that didn't mean that we deserved to be put in the WORST room in the hotel!!!! I mean not all of the lights worked in the room, so we could barely see in there. When we went to the bathroom we couldn't close the door because we kept getting stuck in there. Also the cover around the outlets weren't all the way on, I thought I was going to electrocute myself if I plugged anything in. And then all of the channels on the television were fuzzy and it was hard to watch it. It's a shame that we thought you would want to show your guests that you still valued their opinions until the end, but you sure did drop the ball on this one.

"Closing Soon - Don't Go!"
Was offered a smoking or pet room when I checked in...they said nothing else available. When I informed them that I was asthmatic, they told me to send the Showboat a doctor bill because they really didn't care. Seriously? I truly feel sorry that all these people will be unemployed soon but the attitude and atmosphere was horrible. Stay somewhere else […] where you are wanted! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
my first time stay here, I was nice and clean. I enjoyed the space of the room. Really love that the bathroom because it has a separate space for the toilet with a door. the room also had a fridge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Solid, but closing"
We stayed at the Showboat on a one-night stop en route home from a southern destination. Beautiful location, but noisy hotel. Unfortunately, due to financial concerns, the Showboat Hotel & Casino will be closing for business on August 31, 2014.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Showboat had great entertainment and dining-I cant"
Showboat was one of the greatest stays we had. Entertaiment was wonderful, staff very courteous, restaurants fantastic. I want it to stay openGenuine Hotels.com guest review
good hotel with a good casino. a couple of the dealers and employees made a few comments about the hotel closing in 10 days and i think they kinda were relaxin on the job a bit, but it didn't matter we still had a good time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Showboat is sinking"
Spend your money elsewhere, this hotel is outdated, the common areas are filthy, elevators are small and under capacity for the number of guests. Few outlets in the room, old CRT TV, at least the bathroom was clean and seemed to have been updated in the past few years. Bed linen and pillows were spartan, no ice on our floor or the 2 floors above, had […] to go to 2 floors below to find ice. Stay in a hotel that is not closing within a month, there is no real value here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed from 8/15-8/17. The furniture was dirty as well as the carpet inside and outside of the rooms. My husband and I couldn't fully enjoy the room. Listen to the reviews!!! Don't stay in the New Orleans Tower! On another note the staff were nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was so disappointed with my stay at the Showboat. The rooms were filthy and we were eventually moved to a "better" room at 3am. The beddind was wet and we found cereal under the covers, there was gum on the ceiling, ketchup all over the walls and toilet paper hanging from the pictures. The carpet was wet as well. For $320 for the evening, I expected […] a great deal more. Efforts to speak with a manager was a long process, and we were offered a $100 credit to be used at the hotel. Considering all we wamted was to get out of there, it was little consolation. I am awaiting a full refund. I suggest you look at other hotels. This one was disgusting at best.

"Very nice casino hotel"
I enjoy my stays at the Showboat. It is a nice, clean, moderately sized casino hotel. I enjoy the New Orleans theme. I have found the rooms to be clean and comfortable and the staff courteous. It is too bad that it is slated to be shuttered.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Goodbye to the Great Casino"
Had a good time with the family, at the Showboat. THE writing is on the walls that this Casino is closing . The maintenance of the hotel is poor the windows are so dirty you can't see out of them. Carpet stained etc.... We enjoyed walking the boardwalk close to a lot of entertainment. Date of closing I herd is Aug 31.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had originally booked this hotel for two nights. However as soon as I got in, at the front desk I was told that there are charges for all small things in the hotel - 12 dollars for WiFi per device, no microwave in the room (additional charges for that), no free breakfast etc. It seems that the room was not cleaned before we got in and there were hairs […] everywhere and there was a stinky smell coming in the room. When we called up the room service multiple times, no one picked up our call. I an my wife were very frustrated and decided to check out within a few hours of our check in. But they still charged us the fare for 1 night. Very pathetic service I would say. I checked into the Comfort Inn hotel later and it was much much better that this hotel. Avoid Showboat everyone.

"hairs on bed sheets!"
I dint think they even changed the sheets before us. The sheets had hair on them. The carpets are just full of stains. The fridge had priors guests' garbage in it! Jimmy rockets cups and so on. We had to call house keeping once we arrived so she can clean the room. We were shocked when house keeping told us you are only here for a day its ok! Wow. I […] still tipped her $5 so.she can do a good job. I didnt want to deal with it and I wanted o enjoy my one night there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

great room, good time, will miss show boatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was in terrible condition. Our room had a peculiar oder. My sons' room smelled like smoke even though it was a non smoking room. Someone on our floor had room service and the dishes stayed in the hall during our entire stay. Hall carpets were filthy. Smell of smoke from the casino radiated through the entire establishment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pointless review, since it's closing"
The hotel has so much potential, but has clearly been allowed to slide. Since it's closing at the end of the month, reviewing it now is rather pointless. Some maintenance and getting rid of the smokiness and it would still be a nice place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"to bad it's closing"
This could be a nice place. But with it closing looks like no one cares anymore. The staff that was still there was very nice. How ever I had mold in the bathroom and during rain storm there were many leaks in the building with wet ceiling tile falling out in one of the walk ways. But I'm sure with the closing coming up they are under staffed and not […] spending the money to repair. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"No Wonder it's Closing"
Booked a non-smoking room with two queen beds and when we got there was told only smoking rooms with one king size bed was available. No help from management at all and told us that housekeeping works on their own schedule. And I paid more for a room with two queen beds and was given no help in getting a refund for the difference. Once in the room there […] were stains on the chair and couch, our bed sheet had a noticeable rip, and our pillows were dirty. When we asked for new pillows they would only give us new pillow cases, but it took two calls and three hours later to actually get them. We stayed here since it was the most reasonable hotel on the boardwalk, but I would think it's worth spending the extra money to stay at a hotel that isn't closing and still cares about customer service.

"Worst Staty ever"
Had a Bachlor party Last Saturday...Room was NOT cleaned until 9pm! No to mention the fact that nothing in the room worked. Customer service at the desk was beyond rude. A lot of these people are getting layed off so caring about you is the last thing on their mind. DO NOT GO.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
