Cheap hotel close to Atlantic city

Posted Jul 20, 2014
The room is ok and clean. The hotel is at 10 min drive from the boardwalk, so good location. The guy in the lobby didnt appear to care about the customers. In addition, they pretend to offer a continental breakfast. Worst continental breakfast i have ever seen! Just mini muffins and coffee and that is it.

A nice cheap getaway

Posted Jul 10, 2014
low on funds for this vacation but didn't want to just sit at home. I got a good room rate and decided to spend two nights in Atlantic City. I had a very comfortable room and the pool was awesome....during one afternoon I had the pool all to myself. pool was open from 9 a.m. Till dusk which was also really nice. the staff was really friendly and asked if I wanted a full room cleaning or just new towels on my second day. I've stayed at other inexpensive hotels outside of Atlantic City and some are really really dumpy but this place was pretty decent.

Above expectations

Posted Jun 21, 2014
Pros: Clean, great owners, location
Cons: WIFI
For a budget property it is a definite "score". Friendly, responsive staff, super clean room; great bed/pillows. Relatively quite. Concrete construction minimized neighbor sounds. Very convenient to AC...10 min easy drive straight down White Horse Pike. Should probably eliminate the "breakfast included" ad as it was only mini muffins and coffee. But again, a well priced property, at lest for us with their "special rate". Only real issue for us was a very slow almost impossible to deal with WIFI. Would definitely stay again. But, as you probably know AC makes all its money on the weekends. We won't pay weekend prices at any of the properties, this one included.

Clean, comfortable, and homely stay at the Empire

Posted Jun 6, 2014
Pros: The rooms were very clean and comfortable, staff was hospitable, and the pool was refreshing.
Cons: Everything was perfect.
Location: The location is perfect: located right on the road to AC and in walking distance to many restaurants/shops/attractions. Also, a very safe location.
I have been coming to this area for years (almost decades) and the Empire is by far the best establishment I have stayed at in the area. The rooms are comfortable and most importantly, very clean. The location is another huge plus, as it is centrally located to all of the local attractions I prefer to frequent. For what the motel charges, you can't beat it. The swimming pool provides a quick cool down on a hot day, and was clean and perfect for us.

Good value for a weekend getaway to Atlantic City.

Posted Jun 5, 2014
Pros: Price, accessible location.
Cons: Enforcing non smoking rooms and sanitizing tobacco smoke.
Location: 10 minutes away from downtown Atlantic City.
Recently traveled to Atlantic City for Memorial Day weekend with my girlfriend. It was a last minute plan so I was surprised to find a decent price. I admit reading some past reviews had us a little nervous but those fears proved to be unfounded for us. Check in was quick and easy. The only disappointment was that we requested a non smoking room but upon walking in we both could smell smoke. The scent was not overpowering but we still had to air the room out a little. The location is only 10 min away from downtown and even during the holiday traffic was pleasantly light. The first half of the weekend was slightly chilly so instead of the beach we went by the pool. It was a bit smaller than I normally use to but one can still get a decent workout. The hotel also has a few beach chairs to lay out and tan as well. Overall, if you are looking to save on lodging and are not high maintenance then this hotel is an excellent choice.

Easy to find

No good access to restaurants. Smoking room had no ashtrays. No Kleenex in room. I asked for no service, they still entered my room.

We do take care if our guest requirement. We did not have any complain for what you mentioning. Our non smoking rooms are strictly non- smoking, and there is a penalty of $200 for smoking into non smoking room.
