“Better off staying elsewhere”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

My fiancé and I have stayed at this best western numerous times so figured this time would be fine just like the other times. This time when I walked into the room on a blistering 95 degree day, the AC wasn't running so the room was an oven. When I went to shut the window to turn on the AC, there were three dead beetles (or some sort of bug) on the inside of the screen. Great.....saw the same dead beetle smeared on the way by the door that no one cared to clean. Found yet another dead big on it's back by the TV (and a lot bigger than the beetles were). The bed was super sunk in and the bedding was dated and scratchy. Won't stay here again. There's too many hotels on white horse park to deal!!!

What is offered for the price location of the Hotel is Excellent.. A great location for Atlantic City, Cape May, Smithville and the south Jersey Beaches. The clearing staff did an fantastic job. The front desk was very responsive to you request.

I've stayed at this hotel several times for trips to Atlantic City. It is about 9 miles to Atlantic City. The rate is reasonable even though it's raised significantly on Saturday, as is most hotels in the area. The accomadations are good, nothing fancy. There is free parking and breakfast.

Great place to stay, just outside of Atlantic City. Manager upgraded us to a king size bed at no charge. Room was clean, breakfast was very good, and the price could not be beat! Highly recommended!!!

We needed a room to stay for the night in the area. Reading reviews of the hotels in this area made me a little nervous. The Best Western wasn't too bad. It definitely wasn't worth the money we paid, even with our AAA discount, but I guess it could have been worse. I do not think the bed was a queen, although that is what we requested (because there were no Kings available). Water pressure was fine and there were plenty of towels. We missed breakfast because I didn't know it was over at 9:30 a.m. (early for a weekend).

Great property, great staff. Out door seating needed. Housekeeping staff very friendly. Front desk staff very professional and helpful. Rooms were clean and parking area was well maintained. Location was good and traffic was manageable.
