“Let's Have Some Perspective Here, Folks”
Reviewed 10 February 2013

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.

Room Tip: Cheezy but relaxing heart shaped hot tubs.

My boyfriend and I went to AC to see Chaka Khan in concert and instead of staying in the heart of AC for 1 night, we decided to look for a cheaper place. It was decently clean, there was a microwave and a mini fridge as well as a TV with a remote. The bathroom was clean and the water was nice and hot. It was a cheap stay and we actually will consider this place whenever we are doing a quick stay at AC. We arrived around 1130 and the man at the front office was very helpful and informative. We went to Dennys, which was right across the street from the motel. There is also a WaWa near by as well as a liquor store, and supermarket (i think it was shop rite). Overall this wasnt a palace but it was clean and it got the job done. Im usually VERY picky when it comes to places I stay in, but in general, this was a good stay...The only issue I had was that the chairs were a little dingy and soiled but other than that, have no complaints!

When Sandy hit the Lake Hopatcong area with 60mph winds we lost power Monday night and didn't come back on until Friday about 12 days later. I ahd to leave my home and business and drive to Absecon NJ where my son lives. Though it was just 15 minutes outside of AC there was no power problems and NO GAS LINES! The last I was on the previous week took me 4 hours. Not only was Super 8 a clean comfortable and accommodating Motel but making reservations on line proved to be a great deal. I highly recommend this property with a great staff who will go out of their way to make your stay weather for business, pleasure, or in my case a life saver as pleasant as possible.

First of all let me say...you're staying at a Super 8. Don't expect it to be the Taj Mahal.
Stayed here a little over a year ago (In Sept. 2011 - wasn't able to choose that time frame) for a quick trip to AC. Was close to the Boardwalk without paying a million dollars. The room was average and was clean. Didn't notice any of the smells described in other reviews. Can't say the stay was spectacular, but I can't say it was horrible either. Just your normal, run-of-the-mill motel. Remember, you get what you pay for.
