Budget lodging and Wi-Fi half a block from the beach and Boardwalk

With an incredible half-block proximity to the Atlantic City beach and Boardwalk, Rodeway Inn Oceanview offers budget travelers a room near the sand at a reasonable price. Use the free in-room wireless Internet and grab a cup of free coffee with the complimentary continental breakfast. Out the front door, the best of Atlantic City surrounds the blocks around Rodeway Inn Oceanview, from shopping and casinos to restaurants and the amusement park setting down on the piers. Catch a few summer rays on the outdoor sun decks before heading out.

Highlights
  • Free complimentary breakfast , coffee and weekday newspaper
  • Free wireless high-speed Internet access
  • Free parking
  • Half block from the Atlantic City beach and a short walk to local attractions including casinos at the Hilton and Tropicana Resort
Rooms

Rodeway Inn Oceanview knows guests come to Atlantic City for the nearby beach and Boardwalk and will spend most of their visit painting the town. The hotel does not load its 58 rooms with amenities to keep prices low. Bare necessities are here though, including hair dryers, irons and cable television. Some guest rooms also feature refrigerators, work desks, sitting areas and/or views of the surrounding area. Request a microwave or a non-smoking room if needed.

Features

Self parking is complimentary and a great value, as many high-rise hotels in the area charge for parking. Make the easy walk to the Atlantic City Boardwalk, beach and most major attractions. Two blocks from the Rodeway Inn Oceanview, check out the seasonal, scene-making Beach Bar at Atlantic City Hilton Casino Resort with its live entertainment and tropical drinks. Also nearby, Tropicana Resort brims with a casino, nightlife and three levels of shopping at The Quarter.

Not recommended even if you plan on spending just a little time in the hotel.

Pro- close to the beach and the boardwalk was only block away. Cons- My sister found a long black hair in the "clean" linens and I found a small one. Breakfast was not good and I had to wait for the cleaning lady to make her coffee before I could make mine, which I thought was poor service. The bathrooms smelled like smoke really bad. I basically wanted a hotel semi-close to the strip without having to spend all my vacation money on lodging. I wasn't expecting anything spectacular, just a place to crash after the nights out. However, it's bad when you still feel dirty after a shower.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you forget your sunglasses, ball cap, toothpaste, etc. There is a 99 cents store on the boardwalk, about a five minute drive, that has a huge selection. I bought sunglasses at a regular store for $10 and then saw the value at this store.

3 day weekend getaway

I got 3 days off, so I decided to surprise my wife with a 3 day quick trip to A.C. It was the first time there for her and I. We got to check in, and the front door was busted with a board over it. Then the desk clerk very very unfriendly, checked us in and then told us we had to pay for parking, So expect to pay an additional 5-10 a day for parking at the hotel, if you come on the weekend. Then we entered are first room, the room had never been cleaned, and the old sheets still on the bed in a bunch. Went back told him, he went to check because he thought we were lieing. After that, we got a new room. The free breakfast included stale muffins! no toast, no coffee, no juices. just stale muffins. the room itself was okay, and very convenient to the boardwalk.

weekend getaway

Rooms too small. Bathroom too small. Rooms have door access to the room next door. You can hear everything that happens in the next room. The tv is too old but the beds are pretty comfortable and because the room is so small the heat works perfectly. Too expensive for the quality. youre better off paying the extra cash for the tropicana or showboat.

The restaurants on pacific ave usually have a wait time of more than an hour. But if you go into the Palms there are restaurants inside that tourists dont know about with shorterwait times or they take you in immediately.

WARNING DO NOT STAY HERE!!! UNSAFE!!!

Worst/most unsafe service i've ever received from a hotel before. First, there was no parking, Had to park in Econo Lodge 2 blocks away and walk to the hotel. Second, the staff was unfriendly. Extremely rude and assumed that you should just know where everything in the hotel was located. Last, and most important, it's extremely UNSAFE!!! 3 different times in one night OTHER PEOPLE'S KEYS WORKED ON MY DOOR. They literally walked right into the room. Had I not been there...who knows what would have went missing. When the staff was told.....their response was....."that is not possible. you are lying" When i explained that it was a security risk the staff stated that it again was impossible. I then asked how it was impossible because I knew right from the start the guy didn't know how to program room keys.....because it took 3 times before he programmed 1 of my 2 room keys correctly. I asked for a discounted rate due to this experience and the guy LAUGHED and then said...oh we don't do that. You paid already. I can offer you 50% off your next stay. I then LAUGHED in his face and told him that i'd never stay there again. DO NOT STAY THERE!!!!

You get exactly what you pay for, a place to sleep!

It is an ordinary hotel. Clean room, paper thin walls, tv, towels and bed. It even had a fridge. But no microwave, iron or blow dryer. It is like two block from tropicana, one block from the Hilton and one block from The Chelsea. We stayed here because we knew we werent going to spend any time in the hotel. And we didn't, we partyed and gambled all night then slept for few hours and were out again. I have stayed at the chelsea annex and while their room and hotel was better it cost more and all we did was sleep. Here you get exactly what you pay for, a place to sleep not to relax or spend time in the hotel. The only bad thing is the service sucked. Sam made a big deal about not allowing visitors. Just don't go past the front desk to get to the room, go up the side stairs or risk a twenty minute argument with Sam. First car free parking, second car is $10. Check out is 12pm, late check out for 2pm is an extra $20. Oh and the walls are paper thin, so expect being next to a loud room and not being able to sleep, or be prepared to be the loud room. Just remember is Atlantic City so most people will be loud and drunk in The hotel in the street, at the casino and clubs, so get used to it or stay home! Sorry to the people we kept up last night! Oh and a side note. 40/40 on a Friday was horrible. There was no cover but there was only maybe 20 people in the whole place. And the drink start at 13$. Providence on a Thursday night was amazing same thing though drinks start at 10$. Planet rose the Kareoke place in tropicana is great. Drink specials lots of fun. Just be prepared to wait an hour for you songs or pay 20$ to speed up the wait. Or just reserve. Private room!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

You are right near the best night life at tropicana. It is a long walk to the trump plaza, Caesars and ballys. The cabs are expensive but there are these jitney buses that run very frequently for $2.25

Good for the price

Great location! The room wasn't the most comfortable and there were some maintenance issues. For the price though, it was nicer than we expected and the staff was very helpful.

It's what you'd expect in A.C.

People shouldn't 't stay here expecting a 5 star hotel. If you're looking for that, go pay the 200 or 300+ dollars for a room at one the casinos. It's close to several casinos, save for Harrah's and the Borgota, I had no issues with the cleanliness - it was fine. Really nothing wrong with it, it's just not going to be what you would get if you stayed at a casino.
