“Road Trip to Southern New Jersey”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

My BF and I took a road trip to Cape May, NJ. We spent several hours sightseeing in Cape May. We saw where the "Cape May diamonds" are found. Visited a gift shop and saw the "Cape May diamonds" in settings. Visited the lighthouse, and walked around Washington St. We stopped and had a delicious seafood lunch at The Lobster House. We left Cape May and drove north along the coast to Ocean City, NJ. We headed northwest from Ocean City to Absecon, NJ where we spend the night at the Best Western Garden State Inn.

Easy access to anything we wanted to do. Safe area. Very clean compared to some places I've been. No artificial smells to cover up any left behinds. Staff very pleasant including cleaning staff. Quiet.

This motel was not worth the $144.00 dollars that included a AAA discount. It was fairly clean but the free breakfast didn't look too inviting. Sorry I can't recommend this motel unless you're desperate and have no where else to go for the night.

I'm an airline pilot and am on the road 3/4 of the year. This is a good hotel! Awesome staff, good breakfast, clean room, good location, and quiet. There isn't much more I could ask for. Def worth the stay.

Nice hotel for a weekend getaway. Reasonable prices, friendly staff and a nice continental breakfast as well. Easy to get to Atlantic City without paying those inflated Atlantic City Hotel prices. Recommend if your looking for a hotel that doesn't have to be in Atlantic City but close enough if you want to go there!

Positives - location, reasonably priced, breakfast better than many. Negatives - Not really clean (sticky substance on table and placard), breakfast room overcrowded (not enough seating) no staff available at checkout. No hall corridors, so door to room is accessible to public.

I've stayed at this Best Western twice before. On my last visit, we had a problem with the way that we were treated at Bally's and asked for our money back. We found ourselves in AC with no place to stay. We headed to the Best Western in Absecon. Thank God that they had vacancies. We stayed in one of their suites. It's not the Ritz, but it's a clean, safe and budget friendly place to stay. They do need to update the furnishings in the rooms. I can't talk,about the breakfast as we didn't stay for breakfast.
