Some guests find the run-down neighborhood feels unsafe, particularly at night
Fitness room is tiny with only a few machines
Have to pay for parking on weekends
This budget BEST WESTERN Envoy Inn is close enough to the beach and boardwalk to reach on foot, but some guests feel unsafe in the neighborhood, especially at night. A rather average chain property, features include a tiny fitness room and a free continental breakfast, but no pool or on-site entertainment. The 76 rooms have modest, contemporary decor, and offer mini-fridges, microwaves, coffeemakers, and hairdryers. Free Wi-Fi and free toiletries are added perks, and parking is free on weekdays, but not weekends. Those shopping around should check out Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel. Though farther from the beach, it does have a pool and fitness center, and offers more appealing common spaces.
Budget-friendly hotel with well-maintained areas but in a sketchy neighborhood
This Best Western appeals to couples and some families looking for budget-friendly accommodations close to the excitement of the beach and boardwalk. Though it is a short walk to these popular areas, guests note that the neighborhood around the hotel feels seedy and some are uncomfortable going out at night. Inside, the hotel is well-kept and guests are more at ease. The lobby is small and modest: The front desk has a touch of contemporary flair and crown molding adds style, but a dated sitting area, striped wallpaper, and underwhelming artwork contribute to a generic feel. The breakfast room can get crowded, but otherwise there’s no on-site gathering spot, so things stay quiet.
Near the boardwalk and convenient to entertainment, shopping, and restaurants
BEST WESTERN Envoy Inn is a couple of blocks away from Atlantic City’s boardwalk, and a four-minute drive from the expressway. From the hotel, it is a one-minute walk to a convenience store and a liquor store, and there are several restaurants within a seven-minute walk. It is a four-minute walk to Artlantic: Wonder Park, a free outdoor art gallery. Atlantic Avenue, with its many shops, is a three-minute walk from the hotel, while it's six minutes to the boardwalk next to Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum and the Central Pier Arcade. Tanger Outlet Mall is a three-minute drive away. It is a four-minute drive to Absecon Lighthouse, with beautiful views of the city and shore. From the hotel, it is a three-minute walk to the nearest public bus stop. Atlantic City Airport is a 25-minute drive away, but the closest major hub is Philadelphia International Airport, a 65-minute drive from the hotel.
Functional rooms with generic decor have microwaves, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers
Contemporary rooms are simply done in neutral colors -- usually shades of brown and beige -- and have a few accents in the green bed runner and curtains, and a colorful chair. Though the design is generic, most guests find rooms clean and functional. All rooms have a microwave, mini-fridge, coffeemaker, flat-screen TV, and an ironing board. Upgrades offer options such as a sitting area and a whirlpool tub. Bathrooms are also basic and clean with a curtained shower/tub combo, a hairdryer, and free soap and shampoo. Windows look out over the city, with little appeal to the view. There are smoking and non-smoking rooms available.
Free continental breakfast, tiny fitness room, and free Wi-Fi
A free continental breakfast is served in an area off the lobby. The buffet consists of self-service pancakes, oatmeal, yogurt, eggs, cereals, and breads. Guests are generally satisfied with the offerings. The dining area is simple, decorated with a few photographs of Ferris wheels typical of the boardwalk. A tiny fitness room has just enough space for three cardio machines and a weight training bench, which was out of order at the time of our visit. The business center listed on the website is a computer desk in the lobby with internet access and free printing. Parking is free on weekdays, but there is a fee on weekends. Wi-Fi is free everywhere in the building.
