Update (12/24): Steve— Thank you for your prompt response. If you are willing to compensate us with a free stay at the Showboat, I will give your establishment another chance and will consider revising my review. Original Post (12/23): The emptiness of the Showboat is unsettling. There are no slot machines, tables, or games of any kind on the floor, and all of the restaurants and shops are closed, which creates an eerie atmosphere. We left the casino and went to the Tropicana instead for dinner and dancing. Our party booked two rooms but, even though we had requested adjoining rooms and the hotel was a ghost town, our request could not be satisfied. Instead we were placed directly next door to a family with young children, who, starting at 5 AM, started running through the halls, screaming, and continuously slamming doors. No logical reasoning can explain why we were placed on the same floor, let alone side-by-side. When we called down to the front desk for assistance, we were told that security would be right up to handle the situation, yet the ruckus continued for hours, until we finally lost faith in our ability to find uninterrupted sleep and left the Showboat. On a positive note, the room was generally clean, but run-down. The small coffee pot and refrigerator served their purposes. Staff could have been friendlier, but they weren’t terrible. Bottom line: I won’t stay here again, but if you just need a cheap bed to sleep in, this place will probably work for you.
