We stayed here with our soccer team for a tournament, what a dump!!! Run away from this hotel as fast as you can. The most sketchiest people I have ever seen! Marijuana on every floor with all the kids we had staying here.. The noise ongoing from the other rooms until 4 am was

We booked a suite and a second room for a full week. Their policy is that they do not preassign rooms so they would not guarantee us the connecting rooms. I explained to the Front Desk we can’t book the rooms if we don’t have the two bedroom suite set up as it would mean our

Would definitely recommend this hotel. When you have an issue and the manager Betsy does everything to make things right and you are very happy with the end result, you know they care about their guess. And in my opinion that makes a hotel worth every penny. The rooms are

Staying at the Showboat was everything one could ask for including comfortable, clean accommodations. The rooms are spacious, cozy, comfy and come with great amenities. Equally as important are the staff who greet guests with a friendly "home away from home" welcome. The

I also prefer Bourbon. Someone stated that Orleans is closer to the boardwalk. I have to disagree with that. Front entrance, as if you valet parked, Orleans is to the left. Bourbon elevators are straight ahead, as if you were heading to the boards. I would just request a high floor, preferably facing the Hard Rock Casino, then you can see all the lights etc. I think odd room numbers are facing Hard Rock. When I say facing, I mean your looking out your room window.

There is a parking area that sits a long side of the hotel. If you were staying at hotel, it was $12 a day. If not staying at hotel, it was $25. Judging my some of the answers given, it depends on the days you go and whats going on. We went Sunday to Tuesday and the Tour de Shore was going on on Sunday.
