You can't beat the location of the Boardwalk Inn. It's so nice to stay in the middle of so much fun. Great place. We plan to come back every year. We brought our two young daughters that spent almost all day on the rides.

We only stayed one night before our long trip back to New Zealand. Wished we could have stayed longer! The front desk staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to accommodate our request for a (very) early check in as we'd been traveling all the night before. The room was lovely, very clean and nicely furnished. The hotel is right on the Boardwalk so be prepared for noise. We were so tired it didn't bother us! It would be good to have more options for breakfast but this is a relatively minor niggle. We enjoyed our stay here.

Great view of the plaza for the summer concerts. Staff is helpful and ready to help you when needed. It would be nice to have some food options at the hotel for breakfast or have a happy hour for drinks.

I was very impressed by the staff & the fact that someone that briefly spoke to me on the phone earlier that morning remembered me at the time when I checked in. The reason for our visit was for one of the concerts on The Boardwalk & it made it great that we were able to enjoy the concert from our balcony!

Room Tip: The bathroom floor gets very slippery, but it was a GREAT room!

Room 409 handicap room bed was terrible! You could feel the springs from the mattress and it was very uncomfortable. We did bring this issue up to the front desk. Also the train did not quit running until 11:20 pm. and the park closes at 11:00 pm. We had to request an air mattress because double rooms were sold out. Upon check-in we were told they would deliver an air mattress to our room. We checked in at 3 pm and when we got back to the room at 10:30 pm there was no mattress, someone forgot or dropped the ball on our request.
