Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DRU2C Ideal for a Road Trip
We stayed at this hotel during our recent road trip and it was ideally located for Atlantic City and surrounding area. The staff were friendly, the rooms were of a very good standard and we appreciated the free hot breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by G321 G321 rates it Magnificient!
The few weeks that I stayed at this HIE hotel was more than worth it! The staff was great, friendly, accommodating, willing to help above and beyond. I had the pleasure of having as my room keeper Caroline. She was dependable, trustworthy and I could leave anything in sight without having any worries about anything missing. She also taught me a few tricks to making a quarter bounce off of the linens (smile).
I didn't eat breakfast often but when I did, the food was always hot and there was plenty available for all. A tip every now and then is always a good gesture for the food staff as well. I was surprised with the amount of rooms in the hotel that there was only one washing machine and dryer. However, not once during my stay did I have to wait for either.
The hotel is also conveniently down the street from Atlantic City. It is less than 20 minutes away. I felt safe- very well lite. I felt comfortable, everyone including the guest were friendly and I recommend this location highly. John the new manager left me a personal hand written note my first day there. John the old manager could not have been more cordial, it was as if we had been friends for life. Meagan, Sean, Victoria, etc... some names may be misplaced, however, you can't stay at a finer place. Next time, I will be looking for a room with a microwave.
Thanks for a most memorable stay.G321

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by chawkc Great location, great staff, room below average
Stayed because of the closeness to Atlantic City. The staff is pleasant and helpful. The room needed a few improvements though.
The good: Clean and pleasant room.
The bad: The beds are somewhat hard and the pillows, despite the labels of firm and soft were all closer to limp. No shampoo in the bathroom. The shower plate for the faucet was loose, I was afraid I was going to pull the handle off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VZeppos Enjoyable stay
Reasonable price and service, and clean. Standard continential breakfast with microwavable breakfast sandwiches... which is what I wanted. Only minor drawback was the pool is heavily chlorinated, but that's understandable and can be viewed as a positive too. Just be sure you know how to get there, as the U-turn is some distance past the hotel, if you are arriving from the Atlantic City direction.

Loved the fact that coffee (including decaf) and hot water for tea were available at all hours. However, I would like to point out that some people drink hot cocoa all day long, not just at breakfast. For a self-serve hot breakfast, there was always an employee around to help or ask if anything else was needed.
I wish lotion had been provided, but that's being nit picky.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Butterfly1 Wonderful Stay
The gentleman that checked us in, I think his name was Samuel was very friendly and professional. The hotel is clean and updated. We used the exercise room and the pool. It was very nice. The room was spacious and clean. I like the fact that a refrigerator is available for use in the room. The breakfast contains a variety of foods that are really good. I enjoyed using the new automatic pankcake maker and the lady and gentleman that worked in the breakfast area were pleasant and greated everyone and they kept the tables clean as people finished eating. Upon check-out the front desk staff helped me to use the computer to get directions for local colleges that I was visiting with my family. We really enjoyed our stay and it is minutes from Atlantic City and the outlet stores there.

This is my second stay at the Absecon Holiday Inn and both are extremely positive. I called the night prior and spoke with Ray cause I cancelled Harrah's due to the family pool being closed. I remembered Ray from my first visit and he was again very helpful for a single mom with 3 kids (ages 10, 9, 7) to entertain. He even called me after my reservation to tell me about things close by to do with the children. We absolutely love the pool area. The hotel was not crowded so we felt like we had the pool to ourselves. The staff is very nice and had enough towels for 6 kids and adults. The rooms are clean and functional with plenty of hot water for the shower. I enjoy the breakfast we even got a late checkout so the kids could enjoy the pool in the am. This place is quiet so it's a great place to relax with the kids....we'll be back again:)

We loved our stay. It gets harder and harder to write reviews for the my recent stays at Holiday Inns (various locations). Each one keeps surpassing my previous stay. Everyone is super nice and the rooms were recently remodeled. It was a complete pleasure.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JTorr Treated like a Joe Schmo
I have been using holiday in for many years, and most of the time they are great. This instance I was asked to show my ID and they made a copy of it, which I have never done in the USA.
They charged my credit card in advance which is not the way I do business.
They also had an old address (2 yrs old) in my records.
Which I had updated time and time again.
And they had me as "base" status when in actuality I am "gold".
All in all I was not impressed with the way I was treated.

The staff and service as well as the accomondations are excellent. I stayed for three nights and for all three (3) breakfasts they served the same style eggs. Most Holiday Inn Express locations that I have stayed at rotate egg selection on a daily basis. In addition I received two (2) bottles of water for a three night stay to recognize my status as a priority club member (Platinum). I have stayed at the location numerous times and never remember an up grade. Having complained about the perks all of the important reasons for returning there are excellent. I highly recommend this location. I'm sure I will return to this facility the next time I have pleasure time or business in Atlantic City.

I have stayed at this property several times and I like it very much.
This time I stayed in a king bed room (as double rooms were not available, even as a Priortity Club member a nd requesting it months in advance).
Check-in was efficient and off to my room, I went. The location is perfect for my needs.
The decor of the hotel lounges is beautiful! The room was as well.
I would like to suggest a small hand mirror for the bathroom, especially for your female travelers. After a night in the king bed, it was very uncomfortable and I ended up with a sore back.
The breakfast was good though someone did set off the fire alarm due to something was the toaster. The alarm went for 30 minutes! I would be very scared if it was an actual fire and it took the fire department that long to get there.
I was also disturbed by a front desk person screaming - and I mean screaming - at someone on the phone. Perhaps that phone call could have been conducted in the back?
Check-out was also efficient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ZFamily Excellent hotel with friendly and helpful staff
This hotel excels in many ways. Every staff member was friendly and helpful during our two night stay. Public spaces and rooms are perfectly clean and modern. The building is smoke free. The sparkling clean indoor pool and hot tub are set in a beautiful atrium. The exercise room is nice. My family enjoyed a two bedroom suite where my children had their own television and two queen size beds. Rooms and bathrooms are large. Bed was very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast is delicious.
During our stay, the hotel was hosting families displaced by Hurricane Sandy, temporarily placed by FEMA. Several of these people had great compliments for the hotel's management being especially accommodating and kind. A highlight of our stay was seeing Santa visit and give gifts to every displaced boy and girl. The hotel arranging for Santa's visit is one among many examples of how this hotel excels.

We stayed with the Holiday Inn under a distressing situation. We lost our house in the storm. The staff, Ray, Louis, and the two Johns as well as the young ladies, epecially the head housekeeper, made us feel very comfortable. Not only did they help us forget our troubles, they went our of their way to accomodate our needs and chear us up. Especially RAY who helped us get through Thanksgiving day! Everyone was very extremely pleasant. John went out of his way to help get our reservations under FEMA. Everyone bacame part of my adopted family for awhile. We made the right choice in staying at the Holiday Inn.
Thanks to the entire staff!!!!

I usually do my best to make it difficult for hotels, I check in between 4:00AM and 9:00Am and request a very late check-out. These people are always ready to accommodate me with a smile. I can't say enough about the staff. VERY nice people that seem to really enjoy their work. Thanks to them for making it so easy for me. I will stay there every time I am in the area.

I have not stayed at a Holiday Inn in years but, as a result of my stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Absecon, I will certainly consider it more often. At the time of my stay, the hotel was occupied mostly by Hurricane Sandy victims. The staff understood the situation and made every effort to accommodate special needs. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast (included) was good enough to start the day. It would have been great with a little more variety. All-in-all an excellent value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sideout15 Excellent customer service
I have always liked Holiday Inn Express because of it's excellent customer service and their bed's comfort (sheets and pillows). However, for this location, the sheets looked overused, the floor towel's edges were already losing it's stitches, the bathroom door caanot be kept open and needs the trash can to keep it open. We were also not told that it was an adjoining room.
We didn't stay much in the hotel which was okay. We only slept for a few hours. But I still commend the excellent customer service of the Front Desk staff.

I like to stay at this location, good value and conventient location. The facilty is clean and modern. I am a Platnium memeber but everytime I check in they insist that I am Gold. Finally, I had to show my card to prove to them my membership status and they still wanted to argue with me. They need to inform their desk staff that I do have other choices!
