“Nice place to stay in AC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

Gentleman at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful. He even remembered our names in the morning(we had a late check in). Nice decor, free wi-fi a plus, very clean, and good price of $129.00 for a Saturday night. Close to casinos. Must stay!

Stayed here with our family for a quick trip to the beach. School sports kept us at home for Spring Break and we had just the weekend to spend at the shore. The hotel is simple but pleasant. Staff is helpful, friendly and pleasant. Breakfast was good and the pool was fun.
It is a quick 10 minute drive to Brigantine Beach which is a real nice beach but with no public
restrooms or changing rooms.

We just got back from a 2-night stay at this hotel, our first time staying there. Thanks to a friend, we had the Friends and Famiy rate of $76.49 Friday and $110.49 Saturday, much less than what the casino hotels wanted and about $15/night less than the published rate (which was still reasonable).

We were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is beautiful. I'm not sure when it was built but it looks quite new, probably not more than a year or two old. Everything was clean, modern and fresh. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a king room. The bed was very comfortable. Bathroom had a granite counter. There was no tub - just a large stall shower. Flat screen TV in the room. Fridge and coffee maker as well.

Breakfast is included and the breakfast area was a nice size with plenty of seating. Decent selection of choices typical of the chain plus something we'd never seen before - a pancake making machine. Push a button and wait a minute and out rolls a freshly made pancake. Cool.

There is a fitness center and indoor pool that both looked very nice though we didn't use either ourselves.

The hotel is a quick 10-15 minute drive from the Atlantic City casinos right down route 30. There are plenty of restaurants and shops in the area around the hotel.

Cons:

The stall shower, while very nice, has clear glass doors. That makes it kind of awkward if you are traveling with children. With a shower curtain, one person can be in the shower while someone else is using the sink or toilet without seeing anything. Not so here.

When you are returning from AC, you need to go about a mile out of your way driving past the hotel westbound to get to a jughandle to turn around and come back to the hotel.

The desk in the room has a glass top. Very pretty but if you are trying to use your computer's optical mouse, it won't register on glass so you need some type of mouse pad.

The hotel apparently permits pets, a practice that always annoys us, so we heard a dog barking at night across the hall from us.

Overall we were very pleased. We visit AC fairly regularly and would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. New, clean, well-managed, comfortable, reasonably priced and in a good location.

I usually pick a Holiday Inn Express (very new), and *never* pick a Holiday Inn (very old).
I stayed for one night.
The place is simply and old HI hotel, remodeled.
The hallways are all noisy with the old loud ice machines.
Breakfast was OK, and the breakfast room was new and pleasant.
Check-in staff was friendly.
The "welcome gift" they proudly offered was a bottle of water.
Room was OK, but was just an Holiday Inn room.
Be careful when you're driving in. It's easy to miss.

This was a last minute mini getaway to break up the week with no school for the kids and do some family activities in A/C. The hotel itself is pretty nice. It's the location that we didn't like. The positives: the rooms themselves are very clean and updated. The beds are very very comfortable. There is a new additon there that is only a few years old. The pool and hot tub are an added bonus, both very nice. Also the price wasn't bad for what you got. It included a free breakfast which we didn't use, so can't comment on that. The negatives: the location is terrible. It's along a busy 4 lane highway of other low end hotels, motels and restaurants. There's no easy way to access the hotel from the other side of the highway. You have to go about 2 miles down the road to the next U-turn. A train runs right behind the property. The noisy trains and highway traffic are not conducive to a good night's sleep. Even my kids complained, and they sleep through anything. The other annoyance was (and this is not the hotel's fault) the people above us must have had young kids and they were running back and forth, back and forth across their room above at 6.am. until about 9 a.m. when I guess they finally left. We were all soooo tired that day! It's tough to write a good review about a place when you pay good money and end up with a poor night's sleep, and miss the free breakfast because you slept in to make up for the lack of sleep. I would definitely not stay here again, or at any other hotel in this location. I didn't spend the time researching like I usually do since it was last minute. If I had read the reviews long enough to find out about the train I would have started looking elsewhere. I just went with the top rated hotel for the area. Next time I'll be more careful.

Room Tip: defintiely try to get a room on the 3rd floor

I've gone to the AC area a few times and mainly stayed here. The only time I didn't, I wish I would have. In my opinion, this is a way better deal than staying in AC and paying twice the amount, when this hotel is just as nice. Rooms are spacious and clean and I love the pool & hot tub.
