Overall experience was a great one but my light switches in the room was not working. It a pity I only stayed for a night but I will definitely go back because the team is friendly and very attentive at the Boardwalk Hotel.

Fair 4.0
5 stars hotel 3 stars service
In general an OK hotel. Only get the service during check in where staffs are eager to take your luggages, and show you how to operate the elevator, as well as where light switches are. Then, don’t expect any service. No turndown service - and we had a big suite. No towel at the swimming pool. Electric outlets in the room are not working. Staffs in the restaurant chatting to each other rather than serving guests. The Food at the hotel restaurant is horrible. We barely touched them, same to their breakfast. We only had some fruits - things not easily go wrong.
