Another mistake I made was waiting until the morning to request more towels. In the room was ONE facecloth, ONE hand towel, and two bath towels. There was NO bath mat, but I assumed that they didn't have them. When I called for towels, I was told that I was limited to ONE set per person, which meant ONE bath, ONE face and ONE hand towel. I called a second time for towels because after 30 minutes, I still did not have towels. The same thing happened the next day and we had over a 30-minute wait for towels to be delivered.
There was maid service on Monday and at that time, they did leave two sets of towels, a bath mat, soap, shampoo, and a kitchen towel, all of which were MISSING when we checked into the room!
However, a clean set of sheets for the sofabed were not left and I called when arriving back at the room that night when I realized the sheets were missing. After 20 minutes, I had to call a second time. At that time, I was told that the housekeeping person was not answering his radio and it was probably dead. They suggested that I go down to the desk and get the sheets. I made it perfectly clear that I was in my nightclothes and I was not about to get dressed to go down there. About 10 minutes after that second call, the sheets finally arrived.
Also, there were rotten strawberries left in the refrigerator when we arrived.
One morning, there was a plumbing problem. When I called the front desk to report a plumbing problem, the person who answered said, "Oh, the toilet?" From her question and tone, it seemed to me that it was a recurring problem. The bathroom sink was slow draining. The shower was absolutely horrendous because water splashed everywhere. The water wasn't always very hot and to get in and out of the tub, one needed a stepladder because it was so high.
One last comment: Atlantic Palace is located right on the boardwalk so that you can enter from the boardwalk rather than going down some alley next to the building walking past some low life bar. Of course, it is great IF the key works. I went to the desk and told them that my key did not work from the boardwalk entrance and they told me that some do and some don't. They made me another set of keys, which didn't work either.
All in all, it was a very mediocre place to stay!

We expect things to be a little tight in a studio and they were. But there is something to be said about being able to get up out of bed and be standing right in front of the coffeemaker, sink, stove, etc. You didn't have to go far to get a midnight snack.
The "resort" really had nothing else to offer - no pool, no activities - not what I have come to expect from a RCI resort. The casinos are obviously the center of the experience, and maybe that is what was in the thinking of the management - but we enjoyed the shopping and the dining the most.
The biggest negative is the area just outside the Boardwalk. This is an area of poverty - which really is rather striking in contrast with the opulence of the hotels and casinos right next door. And, of course, there are the beggars along the Boardwalk trying to cash in on the benevolence of the "happy rich people."

This is a highrise building with many, many rooms. It lacks enough elevators, especially during busy times like check-in and out, and dinner times. There are only three elevators and no service elevator at all, so you compete with the housestaff and luggage at all times. This is the biggest problem.
The pool is on the third floor overlooking the boardwalk too. It was shallow, only four feet at the deepest, but nice. It is always breezy on the pool deck.
There is a game room and free continental breakfast, mainly coffee, bagels, and pastries each morning. Free newspapers on the weekends too. Not much in the way of resort sponsored activities.

Can`t say enough about it . . . just enjoy yourself. Just step out on to the boardwalk and people watch, dine, gamble, or go to a show . . .
