I'd like to follow up with some info on my experience at Showboat over the weekend. The hotel just changed hands as recently as a few weeks ago (according to desk staff there). They did not have a working computer check-in system and were manually checking each guest in by calling the outside agency used to book the room. So in my case they called Hotwire. It was chaotic and there were 9 people behind the counter and still it took them about 10 minutes per guest to process us.

 

The hotel itself feels like a ghost town because it was a casino and now all that empty space is blocked off and unlit. My room was nice but smelled smoky and they were not able to move me to another room with a king bed.

 

It was a strange experience, but in the end I had a room overnight and did not have to drive the 2 hours home.

Thanks for the update... with the casino closed and the space now empty, will be interesting to see what transpires here (as well as Atlantic City in general)

 

Glad it at least met your needs and served its purpose for the nite.

Thanks for the follow up. I'm a big fan of AC and if its any consolation, Saturday nights in the summer, and especially the last two weeks of July and all of August have the highest rates. Your rate of $150 was excellent, you would be lucky to get this for an offshore 3*.  The Showboat, like the Claridge were formerly casino hotels, and the new owners are trying to make a go of it.
