Unfortunately, my friends and I stayed there only for two nights, however we absolutely loved it! It is very close to the beach, which is great. The rooms are enormous and the beds are really comfortable. The style of the rooms in very Vegas style, which surprised us in a positive way.
Had a great time there and will stay there again! The front desk staff were extremely nice! She was such a sweetheart and helped me with whatever I needed. She made our stay even better than originally planned. I will definitely be back! Especially Holly at the front desk who made us feel so welcomed!!!! Will definitely be coming back and with friends. The rooms are also beautiful and the view is breath taking.
Kyle was so accommodating and was very helpful, I highly recommend staying here for any occasion! We stayed here for my sister's 21st and used their limo service to shuttle to the other casinos, which made the experience even more enjoyable. Thank you Showboat Staff and Kyle for an awesome experience!
The hotel staff was very pleasant and hospitable throughout our stay. Our room was spacious and clean, providing great ocean views.
We definitely envision great things in the future!
