The room was dirty. While the beds were made, the trash from the guests before us remained in the room. The staff was extremely rude and unhelpful. We had an issue on night 2 where the guests in the room next to us threw a drunken wild

The club is actually a dingy and dirty gay club called Westside located in a bad neighborhood on North Arkansas Ave. The show itself was horrible, it only lasted 1.5 hours and the first 30 minutes the MC did nothing but crack lame jokes....so really it was only 1 hour of seeing the guys in action. The guys were ok but nothing too special, Also, they wouldn't let us take pics during the show and made us wait till it was over! Overall I was very dissapointed with the show and especially the club itself.

My girlfriend, sister, and her boyfriend stayed at the showboat on a Saturday night. After going to bed at around 1, we were woken up around 4 A.M. by management asking us to leave for repeated noise violations. We had not spent any time in the room, besides going to sleep (which we had done for 3 hours). Told them we were not leaving and shut the door. 20 minutes later, the cops broke down the door and rudely escorted the four of us out at 4:30 a.m. They charged us an extra $110 for the door "we broke." Management was extremely rude, and would not listen to our concerns. Nor did they even consider that four people in pajama's in a spotless room could have possibly NOT been the cause of the noise coming from the room next door. Before you save money on a cheap room here, think about whether you want to risk have a wonderful trip go completely wrong due to the incredibly incompetent management that runs this place. It doesn't save money when you're charged for double the amount you had expected to pay.

Also, check-in took about 45 minutes because only two people were at the desk.
Su-Su the bartender was the only pleasant part of the experience,
I have a suite booked for valentine's day weekend which I will now switch to a different establishment.

The games looked OK here--similar to the other casinos. We ate breakfast at the Mansion Cafe there, which has a Mardi Gras theme like the rest of the casino, and we were slightly disappointed by the interior design, service, and taste of the food. They do have six other dining spots (I am curious about the buffet place but didn't get to try it) and the House of Blues for music/entertainment. The casino is located sort of in the middle of the boardwalk, so it is not too much of a walk compared to, say, the Borgata. The gift shop had some OK souvenirs, such as a Mardi Gras mask, and the cashier was friendly. Lines were not crowded for us anywhere on the premises when we were there on January 1st and 2nd. We did not stay in the hotel so cannot comment on the hotel. Parking was for free for us.

This is one of our favorite casinos and we seem to do better here than some of the others. It has a walkway that leads to the Taj Mahal and Resorts which is very convenient. Usually is crowded but staff is friendly.

The Showboat Casino, in my opinion, is the place to have the most fun. The casino is absolutely clean, the staff is incredibly nice, and music fills the hallways regardless of what time you walk through.

Showboat is a true theme casino. Others, such as Caesar's, have people walking around in theme costumes and have decorations all over the place, but Showboat takes it a step further. Often times you'll find a Dixieland band playing right at the entrance of the casino from the boardwalk. People can't help but stop and watch, and sometimes even dance! I

Everyone there, from the dealers to the servers, is extremely helpful. It's a great casino to visit, and it's usually not very crowded. The only bad thing is that Showboat is located all the way at the end of the Boardwalk. If it's a nice day, though, it's worth it to take a stroll.

PROS: lots to do and see, House of Blues is there
CONS: needs an update, far down the Boardwalk

I enjoy Showboat, but it has a few detractors. First, it is very crowded. There are cheap parking lots nearby, so many people hang out at Showboat. Lines are usually very long and very slow-moving. Also, it is very far off the beatten path. The casino is a good 15 minute walk from the rest of the casinos on the strip of boardwalk in the area. Try to go on a weekday yo avoid the crowds!

THIS WILL BE THE FIRST TIME STAYING AT THE SHOWBOAT AND I AM EXCITED...THIS WILL BE THE FRIST TIME WE ARE STAYING AT THE SHOWBOAT. I WILL BE SURE TO COME BACK AND TELL MORE....DT, NY

The Showboat Casino and Hotel has a unique style to it, and it has a lot of different gambling options. They used to have a bowling alley upstairs for children, but I'm not sure if it is still there. The rooms are very nice, and they tend to be good to customers who have their card and come back often. Good Atlantic City gambling location.

Showboat is a very clean casino. The Mardi Gras theme is very cheerful. Staff has always been courteous. They recommend the buffet but be prepared for a long, long wait. Have never been able to get in because of my impatience when being told the wait is over an hour. The other restaurants are very nice. Have a Starbucks which is always a plus.

I have been to the Showboat a number of times and have always enjoyed myself. I have stayed over in the hotel a couple times and always had nice, clean rooms. The casino its self is nice. Decent size with a good amount of table games and slot machines. The slot machines are all different dollar amounts too...the nickle slots are addicting :)

I believe they have a new restauant there too, the House of Blues. Didn't eat there, but I checked out the menu and it looked good and reasonably priced.

The parking is always reasonable at the Showboat. You'll always have a good time at The Showboat.

Showboat is a bright and cheery casino. It has a Mardi Gras theme throughout, complete with musicians and beaded necklaces. I've always found the staff to be helpful. Usually there is a long line to check into the hotel, so I do think adding some extra staff in that respect would be really useful. The casino itself is clean, but there is no nonsmoking section unlike all the other casinos I have been in. I think this is a pretty big drawback and don't know why they can't add a nonsmoking section. They have a few restaurants and the absolute best buffet in the entire city. The buffet has salads, fruits, Italian food, seafood, Chinese food, etc... Be warned that the line to get in can be very long, so plan accordingly. Also, it could get pretty expensive if you don't have a coupon or comp. The hotel is nice, and I have always gotten a clean room. There isn't too many stores around on the boardwalk, as Showboat is at the very end. The Steel Pier is nearby and there is a walkway to the Taj Mahal casino next-door.

PROS: Fun theme, clean, best buffet
CONS: location, all smoking
