Showboat Atlantic City Reviews and Hotel Deals

Showboat Atlantic City Hotel CLOSED SEPTEMBER 2014

Review for Showboat Atlantic CityThe Showboat Casino has been a staple to the Atlantic City, NJ Casino scene since the 1980's. The New Orleans', Mardi Gras Themed casino is always fun and exciting. A few years back the Showboat added the House of Blues, bringing some of the largest names in the music business to perform there weekly. With the Showboat Atlantic City, New Jersey and the House of Blues together - it's become one of Atlantic City's permanent hot spots!

The Foundation Room has also been a great addition to the Showboat and is an exclusive restaurant and hip lounge. The House of Blues section of the hotel offers its own casino floor, the poker room, The Spirit Bar, HOB Backstage after party location, House of Blues restaurant, up the escalator you'll find the Foundation Room, House Of Blues Concert Venue etc. Check out this cool area of the Showboat AC.

Great price dirty rooms

Jul 24, 2014 by Jen

I stayed at Showboat for a few nights, July 2014. Great price for room, but carpets sticky, hair from other people in bathroom and bed lights broken and furniture literally falling apart. Old is ok with me, but physically dirty is not. The hallway had throw up patches and was never cleaned the whole time I was there. Staff was nice, but room service closed by 8 pm and other restaurants were closed as well. I know you don't go to ac to hang in a room however this was unacceptable to me. Vallet price on this site states 5$ however it's really $10. I'd use this site to book again because of the great prices but will spring for Borgata next time.

Nice Trip

Jun 03, 2014 by Jacques

Very nice hotel, clean, big room, good situation and the most important thing the price in June ($40) a night was incredible and after that they give a $20 discount. I spent $150 on the casino but at least I had 2 very good night sleeping.
At that price I don\'t have any choice I have to recommend. Ho I forgot the staff is nice and polite. Sorry for my English I am French speaking.

Fun in AC

Apr 02, 2014 by Robert Aines

Room was great, clean, large, nice view, nice hot water pressure in shower etc. The front desk and casino staff were excellent. The food was superb everywhere, from the buffet to gourmet restaurants! Spirit Bar at the back of the casino floor near poker room was a fun place to people watch, hilarious people everywhere and live music was surprise at Back Stage!

Showboat hotel and casino review

Mar 31, 2014 by Quasha.j

It was excellent, the staff were friendly, the room was very clean the food and restaurants were excellent. Atlantic City has more offer than we originally thought, we played mini golf indoors with glowing balls, we ate funnel cakes and danced the night away at HQ nightclub next doot at Revel, mix in some slot pulls and we had a ball!

it was the same experience

Mar 31, 2014 by diane w

I was not very happy with showboat this go around. We requested a king size and got a double queen for just me and my husband. Then there was a mystery charge on my credit card while we were there and no one was able to tell me what they charged me with. Overall the hotel atmosphere is very beautiful but room needed some updating. It was getting hot up in here!
