"close to the boardwalk but not on it."
nothing like the pictures, dirty, parking sucked, additional $100 deposit required upon arrival, close to boardwalk but not on it as i was told. no lighting in evening hours, down a back alley. would not reccomend to anyone do yourself a favor and stay at either trump motels, balley's or atlantic palace. looks nothing like pictures. bathtub was broke […] rates to high for what you get.

"Great Location..just in need of a slight update."
I wish I would have read a review like mine before I stayed...This hotel was the PERFECT location. Walking distance to Ballys and Casers where we planned to go. The hotel had no signage which I thought was weird except for a little mosaic on the side/bottom of the building. You're not looking for a modern "Casino" hotel like Trump, etc. It's cute, and […] cozy. I had a 2 bedroom suite/ocean view. Perfect size and the efficiency kitchen was wonderful, fully stocked. The parking was a little old metal mechanical gate under the building,and the car elevator didn't work all the time...that's my only issue with the hotel...that it lacked common modern amenities..like ice machines on the floors or anywhere..they had a small ice chest which was empty downstairs in garage but a cpl trays in freezer which was good. Overall, I'm happy with my stay, the staff was WONDERFUL and it really was the PERFECT location...2 doors down from a Dunkin Donuts and boardwalk shopping..steps away!!

"Nice hotel close to casinos and beach"
Have stayed here for several years. Always a good experience. Staff very helpful and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Beach"
Overall good, elevator stopped working but was fixed quickly. Pool / beach towels were in shortage by the afternoon.Get them early or they will run out!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and price compared to casinos"
Second time I've stayed here and it is a great place. One bedroom ocean view with balcony. Small kitchen with sink, microwave and full size fridge. Gated parking underground is small but great for security. Right on Boardwalk with easy access to everything. AC worked great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"a diamond in the rough!"
This hotel was all boarded up when we arrived. I thought it was closed but my husband went up the ramp and it was open. We looked at the room and it had been remodeled beautifully. It had a view of the ocean from both the living room and the bedroom. They were working on fixing the exterior after Sandy. We thought we got a great bargain.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wow! How did this place get such a high rating?"
We were looking for a nice resort type hotel close to our event site and this hotel seemed to fill our needs based on the reviews. At the time of our booking, the hotel rating was 3.8 out of 5, with mostly positive reviews. Typically, we have found this to be an accurate tool in helping us choose our hotel. Well, based on our own eyes and experience, […] this hotel was considerably overated. Very dated decor with old appliances and TV's. Leaky window in bedroom (it was pouring the rain outside). A big bath tub that was called a pool. Overall dingy appearance though the room was fairly clean. A very average to below average hotel. If you are just using it a place to sleep in between casino runs, then it is ok. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

It was nice. I was comfortable on the broadwalk made it niceGenuine Expedia guest review
We get there and go into a decent but small lobby. It was check in time so it was a little busy, not a problem. While we were checking in there was an older man saying that he requested a non smoking room because he has children with him and that his room smells of smoke very bad. One of the front desk ladies said that she thinks they have a bottle […] of Febreeze. Then we are given a parking pass and have to beep the horn to be buzzed into the smallest parking garage I have ever seen. The elevators had a fishy smell the whole time. Everyone we talked to at the front desk was nice and helpful. At this point I was just expecting our room to be horrific, But i was pleasantly surprised, it was clean and didn't smell like smoke. We all had to take the coldest showers because the shower was only hot for the first 5 minutes, There was duct tape all around border of the bedroom windows, the other bed room didn't have a window. The pool and hot tub didn't look horrible but the pool could maybe hold 4 people?! Also the 'gym' was a bike, elliptical and treadmill. Couldnt get any of them to work, and the belt on the treadmill was missing chunks of belt. Overall I would only stay here if you're trying to save a lot of money and plan to be out of the hotel most of your stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Renaissance was a great hotel, premium location and very clean. It's not the most modern hotel buy it's definitely worth the stay. For the price and location it doesn't get much better!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"overlooking the Boardwalk with great ocean views"
this hotel is in the heart of Atlantic City right on the Boardwalk with views of the ocean. Staff was very helpful. Cold use some updating but overall in good shape. NO NON SMOKING rooms if that is important to you.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Bachelor party with friends"
Check in/out quick and easy. Parking garage available. Room was nice and clean and even had its own kitchen! Decent price. Right on the boardwalk and very close to the main downtown area! Would definitely stay here again!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Worked for me in a pinch."
Stayed at this hotel on the first nice weekend (4/12) of the spring after my usual standby hotel was booked. I was skeptical as the reviews were mixed and some recent reviews were negative. Was greeted by a polite and helpful attendant who explained all the necessary details. After parking in their garage, via car elevator, it was off to the room. Despite […] others concerns about feeling unsafe in garage and hall areas, I never felt that way. I was put off by the pot smell after stepping off the elevator but I won't blame the hotel for that. The living room and kitchen area were nicely arranged though the cabinets could use an upgrade. The bedroom was very small and could have been larger if they made the living area smaller. Flat screen in living area had wasn't displayed in HD and a standard set is in the living room. You can tell the hotel is older as there were limited outlets to charge phones, devices, etc.. Jet tub was nice but was small so didn't indulge. Pool was shut down but I didn't intend to go in anyway. Not my first choice but in a pinch, I'd consider again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff was great, the hotel was beautiful, nice restaraunts in the area, by the beach and boardwalk and close to.casinosGenuine Expedia guest review
"Weekend with friends"
We reserved a one bedroom with a queen bed and sofa bed. But the queen bed in the beroom was actually a full size, I think the sofa bed was bigger than the bed in the bedroom. Overall the hotel is kind of run down but it was great for what we needed. It had a full kitchen with everything we needed except an oven. The room looks like it has been rented […] 500,000 times since its last renovation, but it was decently priced and right on the boardwalk. Also parking is EXTREMLY tight. Overall, if I needed a kichen I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall a good place to stay for a good price"
Rooms are a good size. You get a full kitchen, living room and bedroom. The hotel staff was very friendly and informative. The location is right on the boardwalk and major casinos are within a 5-10 minute walking distance. The only downside to this place is the parking. You have to park under the building in a parking deck. You have to wait for the […] gate to open to let you in, then wait to get your car in an elevator, and then try to squeeze your car into a minimal parking spot. It was very frusterating though I did feel safe leaving my car there once it was parked. I would definitely recommend this hotel. It was a great price, with a good room, and the staff was excellent.

"Sad excuse for a "resort""
The pool was closed (of course we were not notified ahead of time), the "jetted tub" is a tiny bath tub with a jet nozzle. The mattress sheet didn't fit the mattress, the bed cover had a hole in it. Calling the "Resort" always leads to voicemail, and the only way to reach anyone is by dialing 0 for the operator for an "emergency." When we got to the […] lobby (which was small and dark), the lone receptionist had us waiting for 10 min while she chatted on the phone -- with no acknowledgment or apology. The whole place just felt cheap -- except it was actually quite expensive. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Spring for a room at the casinos instead"
The check-in staff were quite friendly and efficient, the free underground self-parking was convenient, and the suite was very clean. However, the suite was in need of some basic maintenance and attention: several outlets didn't work, at least one lamp didn't work (or the bulb was burned out), there was a hole/gouge in the bedroom door., the bed was […] soft/saggy, and the couch not terribly comfortable. Furthermore, while the couch was supposedly a pull-out bed, there were no extra pillows, sheets or blankets for it -- and only two thin pillows on the main bed. Overall, it seemed that the suite is not subject to routine maintenance checks and had not been updated/upgraded for 20 years. Next time, we'll spend the extra money and stay at one of the casino hotels. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was nice but the indoor pool advertised was not in service. I checked their website before I reserved and before I left to go to the hotel and nothing was noted. I would have appreciated knowing this since my wife and I were looking for a place to relax. W e had planned to just stay in since the shore area was cold and the pool would have been […] nice to use. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I would go again it was a nice place with a good price my only complant was the parking lot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a bad deal"
The hotel was not too bad. At first glance its kind of blah...it could use some updates, but it was in a great location being right on the board walk. The parking garage is not ideal, but at least you don't have to worry about your car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place for the Price"
Had a 1 night stay. we only showered and slept in the room. however it was nice. the room had full kitchen a small living room and even a small balcony. very nice for the price. the hotel staff were also very courteous and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a Marriott"
If you are used to a Marriott or a Ramada or similar hotels, do not go to La Renaissance. Pay the extra $200 and stay at a nice hotel in a better area. Was not familiar with Atlantic City at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is literary at the boardwalk. Very convenient. It's kinda outdated but it's okay. The only problem we had was at the parking. You need to use a car elevator to go to upper level parking which is kinda scary if you're claustrophobic. There's a pay parking right across the street though. :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"loved it except for the parking situation"
the building was clean, the room was well laid out with everything you would need in a small apartment, nice view, not far from casinos and restaurants. the parking garage however was so awful i drove to ballys and parked my car in their deck after unloading my luggage, the garage was extremely tight and gated. you had to get someone to open the gate […] every time you wanted to park and then drive into a freight elevator in a garage that was so tight it must have cars scraping each other constantly. i would stay here again but park somewhere else. the garage was absolutely terrible.

Good alternative to high priced casino rooms. Right on the boardwalk and a 5 minute walk to Bally's or Resorts. Room was good size with separate living room and kitchen 1 bedroom and bath. Nothing fancy but clean and comfortableGenuine Expedia guest review

"Be careful what you pay for............"
Thank God we were out late! the suite smelled like cigarette smoke. and the furniture was slightly torn and tattered. My girlfriend wanted to leave and drive home (1 hour). She even slepted "almost" fully clothed. The mell led her to believe the bed to be unsanitary. Great location, and front desk were outstanding.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was worried after reading some of these reviews, but I was relieved once I got there. The location is great. The rooms are clean. It's not a five star hotel, but it's nice that there is a stovetop, microwave and refrigerator. There is also a dishwasher. The living room/kitchen has it's own space, down the hall was a bathroom and then a little further […] was a bedroom. The refrigerator in our room was turned off, so it kind of had a smell to it. Other than that, we had no issues. It was worth the price. The parking is not great, but there is a parking lot right next to it if you would rather park there for $5. Overall, it was convenient, clean and a relief to have the boardwalk right there and not have to go far for anything. Outlets are within walking distance. I felt safe even though it was just me and my daughter there for a cheerleading competition. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Rented a suite and it smelled like mildew. Had to goto the front desk to get an iron twice and both of them were broken. The pull out sofa was ripped and half of it hung down to the floor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"comfortable suite, but not the Waldorf Astoria"
Nice comfortable size rooms, lots of hot water, good amenities (we didn't use the pool however). Area was so-so but that was because the city left parking lots around the hotel. Not a gambling hotel. Sort of like a prison with all the roll bars for the garage and buzzing into the lobby. Other friendly peopleGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Different but good"
I could see someone with the wrong expectations being underwhelmed by their stay here, but I loved it. The suites are spacious with a gorgeous ocean view, a balcony, sitting room, and a full kitchen. The building has a pool with a spa, a small gym, a laundry facility, and indoor parking. It's located right on the boardwalk, almost halfway between Resorts […] and Bally's. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful and our room was clean. The building is quite old and is showing its age in places. The decor is extremely dated and the bed could have been more comfortable. This isn't a luxury hotel. It's just a cheap (for Altantic City), friendly, comfortable, convenient place to stay.

"Went for 21st bday"
Great hotel if your just looking for a big place to crash that's close to the boardwalk. The 2 bedroom comes with a queen sized bedroom, a living room with sofa bed kitchen sink fridge and the other bedroom has 2 single beds. Best bang for your buck also has dining table and balcony to view the ocean. Great for college kids or anyone ballin on a budget. […] Receptionist lady was helpful too. Free garage parking there's a car elevator down there and only two room keys per reservation. But awesome place to stay for cheap! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
