It's a Super 8, not the Ritz Carlton. We first went here in the summer of 2011 because a loved one was hospitalized in Atlantic City and we didn't feel like selling our own organs to afford a hotel in the city. Much to our pleasant surprise, this Super 8 served as a clean, comfortable and convenient base of operations from which we were able to get to and from the city. The microwave and refrigerator allowed us to store our own delicious home cooked meals (for our own consumption and for that of the above mentioned loved one). The continental breakfast is a nice perk to get the day started. If you're looking for a pampering and luxurious experience at a Super 8, perhaps you should bite the bullet and spend more. The Super 8 is merely an inexpensive place to crash for the night, not a place to be spending all of your time.
We subsequently stayed here on two other occasions as it was a great home base for enjoying the New Jersey wine trails during the "Wine and Chocolate" weekends. As the motel is outside of AC itself, it allowed for extremely easy access to the Atlantic County wineries, as well to the wineries in the surrounding counties. Again, we have encountered no problems concerning the motel's cleaning. The hot tub was clean. Our bed was clean. The bathroom was clean.
Is it perfect? Of course not. But there were no fatal problems. The worst thing that happened was that perhaps the cleaning staff was a little too zealous in their mission (which is not something we seek to dissuade by any means) and tried to come in early one morning. We learned that in the future we would simply leave the "do no disturb" sign out before going to bed. Again, this is nothing that would prevent us from staying again if we were looking for a cheap crash pad.
