    « Quick Overnight Stay »

    Good place for the money we paid. Late night stop for an early morning flight out of AC airport. Was just fine and would stay again. Front desk employee offered us an upgrade on our room, which was nice of him.

    « Great Place to Stay »

    This is a quiet neighborhood within reasonable miles to Atlantic City. The hotel offers peace of mind in an relaxing room with free WiFi and breakfast. The jacuzzi room was comfortable and relaxing. Everything works! Great for individuals, family, and groups.

    « Clean and Comfortable »

    We booked the King Jacuzzi room. The room, bed, and bathroom were clean. The bathroom itself was understandably small to make room for the spa tub, which was clean, hot, and comfortably fit 2 people. Could fit 3. The mattress was very comfortable, we always bring our own pillows.

    « Cheap room outside of Atlantic city »

    Had tickets to see concert in Atlantic City on a Saturday night. Prices too expensive on a Saturday to stay in AC. Opted to stay at this hotel. Location was good. About a 10 minute ride into AC. A lot of shopping and food options close to hotel. Room was adequate. Nothing special. Beds seemed clean and comfortable. Parking limited late at night but available a short distance at end of parking lot. Noisy kids experienced running outside late at night. No one readily available upon arrival for checkin. Needed to wait a few minutes for someone to check me in. Didn't look at breakfast options next morning. Preferred Denny's which is down the street. It met our needs for a place to sleep after the concert which was cost effective.

    « CRAPPY »

    Mildew on window curtains room had wired Oder and the tv made a weird noise! As soon as we walked in the smoke detector wasn't even hooker up on the wall. They would give us attitude when we asked for extra towels and they told us that if we received extra towels before maintenance came then they would tell the cleaners not to come! Breakfast was awful and also my charger came up messing from the room and they did not care and could give me no answer smh

    Very good experience - Price was great - Very clean - Nice breakfast (Belgium Waffles) Staff very, very friendly and helpful. I went over for a two night stay - called next week and scheduled another night - different trip. Would definitely stay her again. Safe, clean, helpful!

    « Attention to detail »

    Cleanliness...Room was ok. The hot tub and bed were very nice. Lamps were dusty. Huge Dead bug on the vanity next to the sink. As my wife was in the shower she screamed for me...there again was another big water bug on the floor. My advice would be for the hotel staff to check rooms and freshen up the room before letting guests enter. It's a outdoor hotel so some pest can sneak under door overall Ok hotel to stay at....breakfast is good and coffe was great....

    « Best stay at Best Western »

    We only stayed one night but were extremely satisfied. It is located right on the road to the Boardwalk and therefore was very easy to get to casinos/boardwalk. So much less costly than staying at a hotel right on the boardwalk. We did not take advantage of the free breakfast, however it looked very good. They also had free wifi which worked perfectly. The room was very clean with no odors, no bugs. The bathroom was very clean also and had a huge jetted tub. We had no complaints at all and would definitely stay again.

    « Great attention »

    I like the great and fast attention at the moment of check in. Courtesy is always welcome that's the reason I always go back. My experience there is good clean towels and blankets but the best is the they always give me discounts and offers me the best.

    older hotel well kept you don`t need an alarm clock planes taking off at 6.00 am over your head didn`t mind at all I`m an early riser anyhow the desk clerk was very helpful as this was our first trip to Atlantic city the air conditioner/heater was super quiet we loved it

    « Good for weekend stay »

    At first when I pulled in, it was questionable but once I got in my room, the room was very nice and clean. The casino hotels were asking way too much money for Saturday night. I am very happy with my choice of hotel and it was close to the casino, so Uber was not that much money. The front desk was very accommodating, I bought a chocolate bar and potato chips from their vending machine with a $5 bill and the machine only gave me a $1 back in change, the total was $2.50 of my purchase. I opened my chocolate bar and it was white, so I DIDN'T EAT IT and I brought it the next morning to the front desk and he gave me my money back.

    A great hotel with a pleasant front desk staff. Very quick and welcoming check in. Well informed. Not the fanciest but clean and offers everything you need for a great stay.. Breakfast is enough to get you started in the morning. Fast check out too. Plenty of TV channels and a great WIFI. Staff is very accommodating.

    Was in Absecon for work and stayed two nights. Check in was quick and easy. Room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom was clean but had a slight musty smell. Turned the fan on for a bit and was fine. Breakfast was basic but well stocked and clean. Would stay there again.

    « Atlantic City Bargain »

    We were attending a Bay Atlantic Symphony concert in AC. Casino hotels on a Saturday night were out of our price range. We used rewards Points to book this stay. The BW in Absecon was a very good alternative to driving home late at night. Not fancy, but a comfortable place to stay. Breakfast buffet was nicely stocked.

    « Nice & Convienent »

    Located on the White Horse Pike this hotel is close to shopping and there are many dining options available right there on the strip. Historic Smithville and Atlantic City are both just 10 minutes away by car. A good, nice and attentive staff at the hotel makes your stay more enjoyable and easy. A good free breakfast gets you off to a good start on your day and can help to save you money for sightseeing and souvenirs on your journey.

    Took a trip out to Atlantic City after looking at prices of casino hotel rooms that we were not impressed with, we decided to give the short 10-15 min drive to the Best Western. Room was clean and was extreamlly affordable. Breakfast was tasty and good! We will stay here again!!

    For the price, I didn't expect much, but I was wrong. My room is extremely clean & very nice. Comfortable bed, fridge, microwave, iron& board, hair dryer, flat screen tv, free breakfast, wifi & parking. The pool is clean and the hotel is extremely well lit( inside & out) I actually feel safer here than closer to the boardwalk. It's about a 15 minute drive to the boardwalk, but well worth it

    « Great mini vacation stay! »

    Great location! We went to Atlantic City and Ocean City different days of our 3 day stay which was less than 25 minute drive for either location. I believe the outside of the facility does look quite sketchy, it needs a new paint job. And the pool was green when we checked the day we arrived but there were other families playing in it so I guess it couldn't have been so bad.

    « Disappointed in so many ways »

    We stayed 3 nights for vacation, not AC but Cape May, Smithville. When we asked the front desk staff person if there was a Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks around. He stated not that he was aware of. Mind you we found 2, one 2 blocks before and one 2 blocks after both on the same side of the road as the motel. The front desk staff all had heavy accents from India and they did not understand everything we were saying. The room was basically clean except for the carpet, lots of large stains and sticky, had to keep shoes on. The hot free breakfast was the worse ever. Scrambled eggs were powered, potatoes were raw, no fruit or yogurt and very little in breads, muffiins, etc. No bagels. We went to DD for breakfast. Also, breakfast is 6:30 - 9:30. who gets up that early on vacation. We did not use the pool, it was small and appeared clean but it has a stockade fence around it at the back of the building. There are so many hotels/motels in the area next time we will go somewhere else.

    « For the price its OK »

    I had an issue right from the start. I go to check in and the guy says I was just about to cancel your room. I did't understand why. He tells me my card was declined. I often switch from one card to another and was planning on doing that. Well he charged for the room the day of arrival as opposed to leaving. How was I to know he was going to do that. Normally the room is charged after you check out. So now I am not happy he's already charged my room and the fact that he was going to cancel my stay. Luckily I don't live far from this hotel and could have gone home if I had to. I arrived just in time and so we stayed. Unfortunetly the bed was horrible. It was so hard I could hardly sleep. The shower curtain rod had tape or something on it and it prevented the curtain from moving. By the time I realized this I was already set to shower so I couldn't call anyone. The next morning we could smell mold and mildew. I've stayed here before and they always seem to give me a hassle on check in. I only come as the price is reasonable during the week. Not so sure if we will return. This time was the worst stay yet. Couldn't sleep between the bed and then their was the air conditioner noise and some other unknown noise. On top of that the linens were uncomfortable(not large enough for a king bed. Breakfast was the worst I've ever eaten at a hotel. Looked like the eggs were plastic. Waffle mix was too watery and ran out. The other choices were limited. If you don't mind these things then its ok. The room seemed clean enough just wonder if they have a mold issue.If I had to pay more than what I paid I would have never gone but the price was very good and that is the ONLY reason we came here. Its convenient to Atlantic City so thats a plus but if they did just a few improvements it would be much better.

    I have stayed at many hotels in my life, ranging from first class to below acceptable. I considered this hotel to be very good for the price. It was very clean and neat, had everything I needed. A nice jetted bath tub/shower, flat screen TV, comfortable king size bed with comfortable pillows. The staff was very professional and friendly. Breakfast was adequate - cereals, scrambled eggs, sausage links, toast, bagels, fruit, waffles. Very good for the price

    « One Day, Great stay!!! »

    We decided to stay at the Best Western for one night, we had a flight scheduled for the next morning. We checked two other hotels near the BW. BW was by far the better choice. The guy at the front desk was very kind, the room was comfortable and clean. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Good Place to Stay »

    This hotel is located in a nice area with restaurants, shopping and sight seeing all near by. Atlantic City is just a few minutes away so there is much to see and do right in the area. The room which we stayed in had a king sized bed that was comfortable. The alarm clock was not useful as it was too difficult just to set the time on it. The bathroom was large and had good ventilation. The water pressure was adequate but a little more water pressure would be nicer with the big adjustable shower head that is in the shower. All in all it was a very nice place to spend a few days at. I would do it again if I was in the area again. They have a good staff and a nice hotel.

    « pretty nice for the price; good value! »

    booked three nights to revisit AC a year after the four casino closures. not big on staying in casino/hotels...they nickle and dime you for EVERYTHING...and the resort fees, parking and wi-fi fees can double the quoted cost of the room. add to that the hassle of parking a half.mile away from the lobby...or the REQUIREMENT to use valet service, and NO THANK YOU. this hotel is three-star...not at all upscale, but certainly not a dive. responsive staff...reasonably clean and well maintained property, decent (though crowded) breakfast...and a nicely appointed room at under $70. traveled with my sweetie...took a 'honeymoon' room and enjoyed some of our time together (let's say we used A LOT of hot water), and although we did drive a bit (the hotel is most of 8 miles from the boardwalk)...we had a wonderful time. i found it interesting that there was a lack of photos of the 'seasonal pool' available on the web. it is not much of a pool...with that cheap/hard plastic furniture...but there is an OCEAN nearby...and lots of free beach access both on and away from the 'world famous' boardwalk. great local eats...lots to fill a summer day...and if you like to gamble; the east coast mecca awaits. would DEFINITELY stay at this hotel again...it fits the needs of the typical traveler...it is clean, and safe. AB-SEE-CON in/of itself is worth a look...

    The room was too expensive. Location was ok. The room was not very clean, carpet was stained. Bedspread was sticky with a gum substance. The bathtub was nasty. The place was literally falling apart. Will not stay at another Best Western.

    « Excellent Value for Location »

    Our stay at the Best Western in Absecon was very enjoyable. We made our reservation on the spur of the moment (on the 4th of July weekend), so we were happy to find a clean, comfortable place at a good value - where would could stay for just one night. The room was basic, but very clean and with everything we needed. The staff was very pleasant and courteous. We went to Atlantic City for dinner and strolling the Boardwalk. The hotel was close enough...about a 15 minute ride...to make this possible and relaxing. All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better experience!

    « Quick trip to Atlantic City »

    Was in Atlantic City over the long weekend with my girlfriend. Opted to stay here as prices for boardwalk hotels were pricey on the long weekend. More or less, we just wanted a place with a clean room and free breakfast that was close enough for us to drive to the boardwalk for the day. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast, advertised as a "hot" breakfast, left something to be desired. The offerings included sausages, eggs, danishes, bread, cereal, and a waffle maker. Orange juice and apple juice as well. The breakfast sausages looked like they had been boiled en masse -- and weren't the most appetizing sausages I ever ate. The orange juice dispenser ran out of OJ with thirty minutes left in the breakfast period and it wasn't replenished. My girlfriend said the coffee tasted awful and didn't finish it (I'm not a coffee drinker and didn't try it). Bottom line, the place fulfilled its purpose as a place to sleep/shower but left something to be desired on the breakfast offering.

    the room was large and very clean. The staff were friendly and seemed like they do anything to make you enjoy your stay. Breakfast was plentiful with eggs, waffles,homefries, sausage and assorted breads. The bed was so comfortable we asked what brand they used as we are in the market for a new mattress. Would stay here again and recommend it highly.

    « Great Value for the Area »

    My best friend is getting married this month and me and my friends wanted to take him to the AC/Wildwood area for his bachelor party. Since this was a weekend trip most of the hotels in AC were ridiculously expensive and the hotels in Wildwood were either still closed (off-season), booked, got poor reviews and/or very expensive. This hotel was less than 20 minutes from AC and less than an hour to Wildwood which made it ideal. We arrived later than orignally planned and didn't have any issues with check-in. The room was basic but nice and everything was clean. The beds were a little hard for my taste but my friends didn't have any issues. Breakfast was very good. They had a waffle maker, Sausages, home fries and eggs which were things that I didn't expect from a "budget" hotel. Overall we had a great time and would definitely keep this hotel in mind when we return to this area.

    « You DO NOT get what you pay for »

    My boyfriend I thought this was an ideal location and after paying $110 for 1 night, expected it to be much nicer. It was basically a Motel 6 with hair on the bed and toilet seat. The carpeting was filthy and had holes. I was so uncomfortable with the thought of sleeping there, I immediately called my travel agency I booked with and was refunded. We didn't even unpack it was so grungy. Oh and the WiFi doesn't actually work.

    « Disappointed »

    Thought it was the best option for the area. Needed a room for one night. Was disappointed. Hotel is quite run down. Service was friendly and helpful. Complimentary breakfast disappointing. Beds springy. So grateful I travel with my own pillow. Hotel needs an upgrade. Faces a busy highway. You would need to keep a close eye if travelling with children. With proximity to highway we expected noise but that was not the case. This was a bonus.

    « Not as good as Best Western on Black Horse Pike »

    We love the Best Western about 2 miles away in Pleasantville alot. WE came here because it was about $30 Cheaper. Big difference.This did not even seem like a Best Western and not much better than any of the motel/hotels on this strip of route 30 in Absecon. Room smelled bad. Front desk did not seem to care.Just not a great property. We will be returning to the Best Best Western in Pleasantville NJ

    « Get what you pay for »

    Don't expect much out of this hotel, as you definitely get what you pay for. We only needed it as a quick place to sleep after flying in to ACY and didn't want to do late two hour drive home. The walls are paper thin, you can hear everything. We were woken up several times because of banging and then around 4 am to people arguing and screaming. Needless to say, we woke up super early after finally being able to fall asleep again and headed home. Can't comment on the breakfast since we just wanted to get out of there. The carpet is definitely worn and could be replaced, the bathroom light is so loud because of the fan. Not a place we'll ever return to.

    If you are just looking for a room to sleep in then its pretty good. The only thing that was good was the price of the room and location. Short ride to the boardwalk/casinos and other shopping in area. Cleanliness of room was nothing spectacular or their breakfast. Booked online and used AAA. Experienced 1 problem with this, one night was using my points and other making payment. When i called hotel to confirm my reservation, they had me down for 2 separate rooms for 2 nights. Had to go back and forth with BW to fix it. First time having an issue with BW 800#. Make sure you confirm with this hotel a couple days in advance.

    « Good value but poor service »

    Good value for the location. The room was clean and in decent condition. Beds were comfortable and the extra towels I wanted where surprisingly in the room. People were mostly polite. That is where the positives end. The phone didn't work and the tv went out in the middle of our program. We were in a tone and way that made me feel this was MY fault and why was I bothering him that the tv couldn't be fixed till Monday which was a day after we were checking out. SHOCK It did come back on sometime the next day. I was told the phone was not going to be repaired until early in the week. ISN'T that a safety issue??? HOW can you call for help in an emergency?? The heater worked wicked well but wouldn't shut off so it got like mordor in the room . Housekeeping walked into the room when there was the privacy card in the lock of the door. They were however very polite and responsive to me needing clean towels.

    « Great price and close to AC! »

    « Do Not Stay Here!!! »

    This place is horrible! They overcharged my credit card. When I called they said that they didn't see where my card had been charged the amount I was saying. I forwarded my credit card statement as proof and nothing. I requested to speak with a manager on several occasions and was told that he was not available. I left me name and number and never received a call back. I called back and when I started to explain who I was and why I was calling the person hung up on me. When I called back no one picked up. I finally just had to dispute the charge through my bank. Do not stay here, there are a ton of hotels in this location for an equal or better value, that won't try to steal your money.

    Soon as I arrived in was greeted by a great gentlemen with customer service. I had a coupon online that I wanted to use, he expected my coupon without any hesitation and even upgraded my room. The room was clean, it was no smoking and no smell of smoke. Nice and quiet and the shower was wonderful I did not get a chance to use the jacuzzi. He also have me a gift bag for coming to visit his hotel today. Great job, keep up the good work.

    « Not quite sure of what you mean »

    I have already made my comments and there is not need for me to keep repeating myself.The beds are very old and very unattractive. The carpet looks old even though it might just be because of the color. The door to the room where I stayed were blocked by the cleaning lady's cart, at least two of those. This particular location needs to perform some sort of upgrade. They might think it does not matter, but it actually does matter when you walked into a hotel room and find yourself on the type of chair that almost crumbling, a bed whose headboard is not attractive in any way and a carpet you would not like to pick up something that fell off your hand.

    This was a very enjoyable stay. The place is clean and the amenities (microwave, fridge) are great. I have been coming here since 2011 and will continue to come here. At night it is very quiet and you can get a great nights sleep. Overall, a great place to stay.

    The stay was wonderful, the staff were always friendly. Very close to atlantic city, nice and clean property. Do not waste your money on one of the popular hotels if you're not staying in AC for too long.

    « Quite impressed! »

    Do not waste your money on one of the popular hotels if you're not staying in AC for too long. Trust me this hotel was just what i needed. Did a girls trip to AC for the weekend; from here its one straight 15 minute or less drive to Atlantic city. The room was spacio,two queen beds and very very clean. Shower clean,microwave,fridge. Omg i was so impressed. Huge tub, an the sink is out the bathroom which made it easy for 4 women to share and get ready. Truat me, dont hestiatte you wont regret. Its also very close to dollar tree,domino's pizza, twp chinese restaurants, Denny's ,cvs and TD bank. Oh! so checkout is 11am and It's $10 every hour late you check out, i walked in to check out at 11:30 and he simply said have a great day , no questions even asked about the time. No annoying calls at 11am to check out. I will definitely be back and recommend!

    « Fine for a one night stay »

    The hotel was fine for a one night stay . It definitely has the motel feel . Check in was easy. The room was clean. The bathroom was updated and clean. The furnishing somewhat dated but fine. You cant reLly beat the price. I would recommend it you afe looking for a cheap,place to stay for the night .

    « Cheap »

    I read the reviews and went ahead and booked. When I entered the room, it reeked of marijuana and cigarettes. The place looked packed so I didn't even bother changing the room since we were leaving the next morning anyway. You get what you pay for with this hotel. This is more of a short stay type of place and I wouldn't stay there again.

    « Reasonable, Clean Hotel with Very Friendly Staff. Great experience! »

    Have visited this motel on several occasions when not staying at an actual casino. This is a clean motel and is great for staying a day or more. I have always been happy with the room and staff members. For instance, I arrived early for one stay. I advised the front desk staff that I was early and would be hanging out outside reading because I was there way before the check-in time. Not only did the staff apologize to me because my room wasn't ready (I was early...it wasn't their fault!) they upgraded my room and gave me early check-in! This is awesome customer service! They went above and beyond when they owed me nothing!

    « Clean...great value »

    This was our 2nd time we stayed here. The rooms are starting to need some TLC but are very clean. Sink stops , remote working but nothing that kept us from enjoying the room. The breakfast area is well stocked and has something for everyone.

    « Great Jacuzzi »

    Hotel was pretty good for the money. Nice Jacuzzi. Breakfast was a sad experience. Bed was ok. NO DVD Player. That was a surprise as was listed as having one. Overall, ok stay. It was nice to be in a location where you could travel to Atlantic City, Smithville, Cape May, etc. without a problem. Road construction made parkway entrance confusing off of Route 30. Wouldn't say we will never stay again, but hope to see more improvement at hotel.

    « Another pleasant stay 2 years later »

    First I would like to say that when I write a review on a hotel, it's compared to the same hotel class so if I say the word "nicest" it means "compared to other places in the same class! This past summer was wonderful and it was all thanks to Best Western Garden State Inn! We live 90 miles from the Jersey Shore and us residents of PA understand all to well how expensive it can get if you want to stay the week or even a night, especially if you live on a budget. Thanks to this particular Best Western, we not only can afford it ($50 a night during the week, $60-$80 week-ends) but rather enjoy our stays because of how they keep the place in great shape. It's been over 2 years since my last review at this hotel so enough time has gone by where things could of changed. We stayed here several times over the summer as well as just this past week and even have New Year's Eve reservations. Now that this part is out of the way, here is my review...... I really enjoy this hotel and the family who runs it. First off, the prices are the most reasonable in the area for this type of hotel class. The rates range from $50 during the week and $60 on Friday night, $85 Saturday night. All of the other hotels with the same class are at least $80 during the week and $110 on weekends. Check In starts at 3pm but they always let us check in early if a room is available. Check out is 11am but if you want, you can pay $10 an hour for a later check out time. This is my favorite part because other hotels make you check out at 11am, at best they let you stay until 12pm. It's a beach location so if you want to hit the beach for a few hours before check out, this rule is awesome! The room has modern decor. Not fancy but not dull. All of the rooms have jetted tubs in the bathroom, dining table with 2 chairs, a 32" flat screen tv, comfortable beds, comfortable pillows, a room safe ($1 to activate), an ironing board with iron, good toiletries, microwave, fridge, blow dryer and a coffee maker. If you need any items such as a razor or toothbrush, just ask and they give it to you for free! The room temperature is good; cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It's nice and dark when you go to sleep and during the summer there's a swimming pool and they keep the area clean and manicured. Breakfast is served from 630am - 930am. The breakfast area is clean and inviting but if you want, you can get your breakfast and bring it to your room. The following items are available for breakfast: orange and apple juice, coffee and tea, oatmeal (both plain and maple), cold cereal, scrambled eggs, sausage, make your own mini Belgian waffles, skillet potatoes, muffins, bagels, toast (rye and white) and danish. Check out: Very easy. You can use express check out or just stop in the office on the way out and return the room key. I am going to share a little trick to ensure a good stay. I've been doing this for awhile. When I stay at a hotel for the first time and the room is good, every stay after that I request that same room so I know its in good shape. In this case, I have been staying in room 119 for over 2 years. I find this is the best way to ensure a good stay. When you make a reservation online and it offers you a "special request" section, that is when I ask for the certain room. It's not guaranteed but 9 times out of 10 we get the room we requested. I hope this helps you when deciding on a hotel

    « Great value - clean and comfortable »

    Everything worked well in the room, although the internet was a bit slow. The decor is slightly dated (I would have liked a desk rather than a table), but there are enough outlets to charge your devices. Breakfast was modest, but it was still a surprise to see hot eggs, sausage, and potatoes in a hotel in this price category. Can't be beat for value for money.

    We found this hotel to be very clean and comfortable. There were adequate towels. Bathroom was very clean. TV was easy to use. We would definitely stay here again. The management accommodated our needs when I requested first floor, non-smoking.

    « Nice stay »

    4.5 stars. Relaxing stay, clean room, updated bathroom, was quiet in the room, jetted tub was nice, but jets seemed not as strong as I expected, oval shape not my favorite but still comfortable. Wish breakfast ran later than 9:30. Overall, I'd recommend this place.

    « Good value for the price »

    I was looking for an inexpensive hotel near ACY airport and I believe I found it. For $42, the room was clean, odor-free and quiet. One small issue with the TV remote, but other than than that I feel I got my money's worth (it was late at night and I didn't bother to call the front desk). I would use this again for a quick pitstop.

    « WEDDING »

    We went as a group for an overnite stay for a wedding.Good location,comfortable room with free continental breakfast.My only complaint was the breakfast was over at 9:30 am & checkout 11am.After a wedding most people want to sleepin from celebrating the night before & hang out for a while before saying good bye.Would I go back ABSOLUTELY!!!

    « Trying to improve their business »

    Was a bit unsettled after booking months in advance and then reading bad reviews. I was very surprised. The front desk clerk was very nice, processed me quickly at check in, and handed out a nice bag with bottle of water and some snacks. Real test was room. Room was very appealing and nicely arranged when going in. Beds very comfortable and I have medical issues with my spine. Everything in room worked, nothing broken. No livestock of any kind. No noise, but may just have been there on quiet night.
