Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BMJones Terrible Smell
The lobby seemed bright and inviting however our bad experience began on the elevator ride to our floor. One of the two elevators was broken and the working elevator actually felt like it was going to rattle to pieces. Not very reassuring but not as bad as the acrid smell and heat that greeted us when the elevator doors opened.
To make matters worse, the smell in the room was reminiscent of a dark, dank basement. No matter how much air freshener we used, the smell remained. We promptly told the desk clerk about the smell and she gave us a surprised look and said it was odd however, her surprise was hard to believe given the smell of the third floor in general. She offered to have housekeeping come to the room to clean it but we never saw anyone.
We were in town for a basketball tournament and spent as little time as possible in the room as our complaints remained unheard. I personally woke up both days with a terrible headache and my children and husband felt nauseous.
When asked at checkout how our visit was,we again complained about the smell and were asked for our telephone number and e-mail address and told the supervisor would be made aware of the situation and would contact us. To date, the only contact we have had was this request to write a review.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bob 2014 A short business stay
The hotel was adequate for my needs - quiet room with a good breakfast. However, I could never get a hotel wireless connection (got as far as the logon screen and it failed to get past that) and had to use my phone for email access. The window in the room needed cleaning. The pool needed cleaning.

Remodeled! Convenient and practical. Great staff and breakfast! Only minor fault would be the air conditioning/heater going on/off during the night (no constant fan) for white noise. The staff and comfort made up for that. Definitely going back!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GKelly Great Breakfast Bar service, poor housekeeping
First the positives. Perry was working the breakfast bar in the morning and his level of service was absolutely incredible. His good work should be rewarded.
On the negative side, the housekeeping for our room was terrible. There were still half used soaps in the bathtub and it did not appear that the room had been cleaned at all

I am a hotel employee, and I do not usually do this because I understand what it is like to have a guest complaint. The hotel is in an okay location if you are heading out into Atlantic City. Front desk was not very friendly, I believe the auditor, Carlos, might have been his name, was the friendliest at the front desk. I had originally booked 2 king beds but was checked into 2 double rooms, I did not want to make a fuss or be a problem to anyone considering I was booked on an employee rate. Seems like I got what I paid for. I went to shower and the water came out red/brown I assume from rust, one of the lightbulbs in the bathroom vanity was out and as I was looking for my comb that I had misplaced I happened to find garbage under the bed. Just a little dissappointing, I would not reccomend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vavavax Very friendly personal and great customer service
We stayed at this hotel one night and was very satisfied with the service we received. The room was very comfortable. The hotel is only 8 miles from downtown Atlantic City. You can rent a car or take a cab for about $35 one way. They have a shuttle but only on weekends, so make sure you rent a car if staying during week days. Overall experience was excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big C Our 5th stay here!!!!!!!!
First of all, this hotel has gone through a wonderfully new and fresh remodel..in the past, a guest would have to go outside to get to the office building for the free breakfast...not anymore...the office lobby and free breakfast is in the main hotel building...we started going here for shows in Atlantic City when the casino rooms ranged around $425 a night...these rooms at this Holiday Inn Express are on the same leve of comfort as any casino room..in fact on my last stay my wife and I loved the pillows soo much we are trying to buy them online...the bathroom and bedroom where very clean..flat panel tv was awesome..in room fridge...and a big comfy chair ...now for the free breakfast..we went down around 8:30 am on a Sunday morning..we were greeted with the warm smell of bacon and fresh coffee...we enjoyed warm cinnamon swirl sticky buns, pancakes, yogurt, fresh bananas, three choices of ceral and milk, scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy...but wait the coffee...that was the star of the meal...I had three cups...we had our choice of decafe or regular...and ps...they had plenty of tables and chairs...I will be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shhwang Just almost perfect!!!
I stayed two nights here. The front staff lady was really nice and professional. I forgot her name who is tall and african american. I went down to reset the room keys twice and she did real fast response. She gave some toys for my kids nicely and lovely. Room has smoking smell at second night and she did her job real fast too. She couldn't find another room for us so credited me some IHG points and cleaned the bathroom as well. Hotel is not so far from Atlantic city and nearby there is a fantastic Shusi place.
People say here is still going on the renovation but I felt calm and quiet enough to stay. I will go back to here if I have a chance.
Tips: breakfast time is really crowded at weekend. Shuttle is after 3 pm to AC, not free but give some credit for gamble.

All of the people that have represented the Holiday Inn to me during three recent stays have been very professional, very friendly and in many cases gone the extra mile to where I would want to use Holiday Inn again.

the front desk is a little far away from the rooms. you don't want to walk that long in the freezing winter. The room actually is good, very quite and comfortable, but the shower head need to be replaced, which doesn't really work well. The staff are very friendly. All in all, it's an average place to stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by uman1010 UNDER RENOVATION!!!
Stay away atleast until completed!!! The place was a mess no coordination between front desk and house keeping! Took me 20 mins to check in due to the long line at the front. First room given to me was not made and had the maid cart in it. Went back down waited another 20 mins to get a room which was left open. First i went in and inspected the room to make sure no one was in there. Its a good thing I am a big guy, however still didnt feel safe at all not enough lighting in the parking and just seemed like a sketch area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Carlos is the best Agent. Very polite and informative.
As a former guest service agent it makes me happy to see wonderful employees working together, synchronization is the key for creating a wonderful experience. Will be coming again to this property. I love it.

Next time I'm choosing another site.

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay. Staff could not have been any more helpful and friendly. Room was nice and very clean. Breakfast was more elaborate than I expected with bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, etc. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars across the board is room was either too hot or too cold. Could not get a happy medium and due to construction I couldn't find an ice machine. Other than that very pleasant stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by weekendbasketballtrip Think Again!!!
My family and I travel a lot. Probably 90% of the time we chose Holiday Inn express due to their great staff, cleanliness, and modern appearance. However, I cannot say this for this particular site. I was extremely disappointed!!!!! I can't believe the chain allows this place to run as it is. We had one of the "newly renovated" rooms as they say they advertise they are in the process of providing. But let me tell you, just because you slap a fresh coat of paint on something does not qualify it to be newly renovated or updated. Everything was so ran down, the mattresses were uncomfortable, it just felt gross! On a positive note, I thought the bedding seemed clean and the staff was nice. I was just so disappointed in the overall experience, I usually love the Holiday Inn Express...but not this time! I would suggest someone from their corporate office to come by and see what's happening.

As a frequent guest, not only to your hotel, but other Holiday Inn Express hotels, my family and I enjoy the stays. But the last two stays at your place was below par. This last time, I turned on the bath and brown water gushed out. Sure it went away, but it did it every night when first turned on. Then between the bathroom sink and the bath tub, the water took forever to drain. On Saturday, my wife and I left about 8am to hit the boardwalk and when we came back to the hotel around 4pm, to shower and change, room service was just entering our room to clean and we had to wait about 30 minutes. Granted there may have been call offs, but!!!
This was probably the last stay there for me

Room had roaches and hair in the shower. Rooms are unusually small for the average HI & HIE rooms. Plus carpets were dingy looking. Lobby/breakfast area should be connected to hotel.

I stayed the weekend of the Atlantic City Marathon and of which I ran the marathon. It was very convient to stay there along with comfortable beds and great service.
The breakfast options were awesome and had alot to pick from.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Susan9801 Under construction
This hotel was under complete renovation and construction, it looked like it was hit by a hurricane. The exterior property was vacant, disheveled, and falling apart and looked like it wasn't open for business. Could not find the entrance because most doors were being renovated. The entrance portico had missing tiles and looked like it was going to fall apart. The front desk person was nice and pleasant however she checked me into a room on the first floor, that had a connector door to the room next door. I always check the connector doors to make certain they are locked. My inside connector door was not locked and neither was the other connector door to the adjacent room. When I pushed the other door to see if anyone was in that room the room was under complete renovation. There was no furniture, and drywall and paint materials throughout. This was not the problem. The problem was that this "connected room" on the first floor, did not have a completely enclosed exterior wall. The area under the windows were completely blown out so that any animal, person, snake, bugs etc could walk right into that room from the outside of the building. This was frightening. I asked to have my room switched to the room connected to my associate but I was moved across from her, which was fine. But it appeared that no rooms were renovated on other floors and it appeared that the entire hotel was vacant. It looked like something out of a movie. I was unable to sleep restfully throughout the night as I heard knocking on the window (1st floor) that disrupted my sleep. Overall a disturbing experience and would never go back to that hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by XPRider Free Shuttle to Boardwalk
Having a free shuttle to the boardwalk was a big plus. We also enjoyed the nice free breakfast with lots of items to choose from. Because this hotel is under renovation, we were not able to get our IHG Rewards Platinum member upgrade to a suite, but were given one of the newly refurbished rooms. We were also given a nice little bag with some snacks and bottled water upon our arrival. I only had one minor complaint. I had booked the room for 3 adults and was charged an extra person fee, but the room was not equipped with enough towels and shampoo, etc. for 3 people.
