    Love big dogs

    I loved that this hotel allows large dogs. Our dogs had the best time on the beach and boardwalk. The room was large enough to accommodate two people and two dogs. I will definitely stay here again.

    Parking expensive

    $20 parking fee per night on a weekday. And no treat for pet upon check-in as advertised. The room was ok with a nice view.

    Loved it!

    We took our Bernese Mountain Dog to the Showboat and could not have asked for a better experience! We have a hard time finding places to take him due to his size (most places have a weight limit). It was nice to be able to sit in the lobby area outside the bar with him and enjoy some beers and food. The pet relief area was a little small but they kept bags there and a waste receptacle. Saw lots of other dogs there as well! Plus there is a nice dog beach about 25 minutes away that was perfect! We will definitely be going back soon!

    Not so great

    Upon check in I did not get special treat for dog. I needed some info. as far as do’s and don’ts for dog which were not answered. Room was ok but needs updating. There was no bar soap, shampoo or conditioner in the room. After calling a few different numbers numerous times it took 3.5 hours to even get the soap. The only restaurant open did not pick up the phone. We had to walk down to place and order. Which we were told we had to wait 20 minutes before we could even place the order. They were rude and pretty much out of whatever we tried to order. They didn’t even have white bread for grilled cheese. That is pretty basic.

    Great location

    Hotel right on the boardwalk. Don't expect more than just a hotel. No casino, no breakfast buffet, minimal food and beverage.

    A lovely stay

    Our room was nice on the 21st dog-friendly floor. Everybody loved my pittie which made me very happy. We had a great view of the beach. Check in/Check out was easy. Would definitely stay again!

    AC trip with my friends and we all brought our dogs. The hotel is definitely dying, but our dogs had a great time. Beach access from the hotel they were able to play and sniff to their heart’s content.

    My fur baby had a great time, nice area for him to go to the bathroom and they provide bags. Room was basic but very well stocked and extremely clean. Good area on the boardwalk

    Amazing staff

    The staff is amazing, friendly and professional. The brick and mortar structure needs a little TLC. Hopefully the restaurants will reopen and the empty space that was once a casino will soon be occupied. They have a fabulous location on the boardwalk. Hopefully, it can be restored to the elegant place it once was. They already have dedicated and conscientious employees, who are friendly and highly qualified. The structure itself needs improvement.

    Good trip with the dog

    Hotel was clean and dog friendly. Dog bathroom is a long walk but it is a big hotel so that is to be expected. Would go again.

    Not useful for pets

    To put pets on 21 floor and make them have to walk almost half mile just to find a place for them to go to bathroom was absurd. Should have had an area on the “pet” floor for toileting

    Always enjoy Our Stays

    we have stayed at Showboat at least 6 times in the last year. the fact I can bring both my dogs is definitely a plus. it’s right on the boardwalk. close to food establishments. short indoor walk to Hard Rock. we have always had a clean room and a great stay. staff has always been friendly and accommodating.

    Would not stay if not for dog friendly

    This is a 2 star hotel that needed an overhaul years ago. Don’t expect much and you’ll be fine. There are not many places in AC that allow multiple dogs and large dogs, so we put up with it.

    The price was right for me and Rocco

    I was very happy to find a hotel that allows pets and doest charge a ridiculous rate. Showboat has that covered it was 50 dollars extra to bring my dog. They put people with animals on the 21st floor. I was surprised that they had carpet in the room, I was figuring it would be all tile to eliminate animals marking and what not. Much to my surprise they had carpet and the room did not smell at all. The hotel does not have that many amenities but the price was right it was nice and quiet and a good place to stay with my dog while I was in town for a Car Show / Auction.

    Great for dogs

    I love that there's a dog park right outside the hotel. But the shower was terrible with no water pressure and no hot water.

    We recently stayed two nights at the Showboat in Atlantic City. The room was clean as was the bathroom. The employee who checked us in and out was very nice and polite. That is the nicest thing I can say about this stay. The place was deserted and absolutely eerie. We did not see a single other person during our stay. The abandoned casino and restaurants only added to the creep factor. On the practical side.....there’s nothing there, no place to get breakfast or coffee or any other meal for that matter. It was a long walk to the nearest open establishment. We were first given a room on the 21st floor and I asked for a lower floor to make it easier to take the dog out. We were given a room on the 8 th floor but our room was the absolute farthest room from the elevator. We never saw or heard anybody else on that floor so I don’t know why we were put on the end like that. The area to walk the dog was fine but again, it was an incredibly long walk through the hotel to get there. We were charged a resort fee per person per night for the pool, the beach access and the internet. The pool is closed for the season, the beach access is closed also but we did have internet service. Still, why are we paying resort fees for facilities that are not available.? I will never stay here again and cannot recommend it to anybody else. The emptiness, lack of other people and overall abandoned feeling of the hotel gave me the title of this review: creepy!

    A Godsend For Large Dogs! No Frills Hotel With Major Charm!

    Just got back from a one-night stay at the Showboat Hotel & I could not be happier with my experience. Others seem to be caught up in the unappealingly barren casino floor, but for less than $150/night on the BOARDWALK WITH YOUR DOGS? What more could you ask for on a pet-based travel site?

    My dogs Rocco (lab/rottie) & Muggsy (jack/pug) were greeted with affection from staff as soon as we entered the lobby. Rocco is big & typically yields a variety of responses, but a front desk representative immediately leaped to greet him, as well as passing guests. It was almost surreal.

    We had no issues checking in & found our room on the 9th floor. A pretty standard hotel room with a few bleached spots on the carpeting from previous guests (once again, completely expected). The ocean view was a major perk.

    The staff was courteous, friendly, and generally unbothered by dogs. Nobody weighed Rocco or hassled me over his puppy-like temperament/nervous barking. A small area with waste bags is located near the parking lot. Neighborhood allows for nice dog walks with no fuss. No trip is complete without a visit to Longport!

    Allows Pets, Rooms were Clean

    There is no dog welcome bag on check-in. One small relief area that had an overflowing trash can. Relief area is a bit of a walk from any room in the Bourbon Tower. Would recommend staying in the other tower of the hotel if you can. Hotel is fairly empty with not much to do since they removed the casino. Hotel seemed understaffed. One person for checkout this morning and only one when we checked in.

    Hotel great, staff OK

    I got there around 2am and had a problem with the front desk. First she sassed me by stating checkin was 4pm. Then when I explained the reservation was for the previous afternoon, she announced she had "canceled" my reservation because I was late. (Cancel a prepaid room??) Then -- after over ten minutes futzing with the machine, she decided she couldn't check me in because she was running the computer audit. I gave up and took the dog for a walk. When I came back I did get a room key.

    After this initial BS, things were fine. I did think the place was a bit understaffed for the convention they were hosting -- long lines at the desk and valet all weekend.

    I probably will go back. I just won't show up after working late.

    Great stay at the Showboat!

    My family and I spent the weekend at the Showboat and had an awesome experience with our dog Sophie. The hotel is super pet friendly and even have signs everywhere letting people know that the hotel prioritizes family’s pets. There’s even an area to walk your dog.

    Pet and Family Friendly

    The Showboat is now a hotel only, not a casino. They are catering to families, and are very pet friendly. The staff was gracious and we felt comfortable having our dog with us. We just stayed here this week again, but had stayed a few years back when it was still a casino. Even though they aren't giving doggie goody bags at this point ( which I don't think is necessary anyway) , I felt it was even more accommodating to people with pets. The hotel is still adding things recreational facilities where the casino had been.

    Great Pet Friendly Hotel

    We love to stay at showboat and we defenetly will go back again, although we didn't get any welcome treat or doggie goodie bag but it's really a great hotel to stay and we spent a great time with our 4 years boxer. It was her first trip away from home but she slept well.
    They have some area with green grass for our dog to do her "business" near the parking lot and we had a nice walk around the blocks as not to many cars on the road. Then We walk and sit on the boardwalk for a while as the hotel locate almost at the end so not to many people, very nice and relaxing.
