This was absolutely the worst stay in a hotel I have ever had! I had to change my room due to it being dirty and smelling like smoke and the second room I got had cigarette burn marks on the toilet seat and on the bathtub. The sheets were dirty with a red substance which we think was blood and it was absolutely disgusting! We are in the middle of a pandemic and your website ensured extra clean conditions which they were they absolute opposite and this was worse than a Motel 6! I personally think the entire Showboat should be condemned it was so gross. The fact that it cost $180/night is an absolute rip off! If i could give it negative stars I would. Absolutely gross! See the photos of the burn marks.

We booked two nights for a big group celebration for the weekend. Signed away stating you wouldn't smoke in the room, blah blah blah. When you get into your room you are only hit with stale cigeratte smoke. Stains on the carpet and couch. Bulbs burned out in the bathroom. Bathroom that will barely drain - so imagine taking a shower with water up to your ankles. Mini fridge was defrosting all over itself since it is only on 3 legs instead of 4. Parking is $25/day -- so be prepared - we weren't. It's a hike with your luggage to even get in the building. Next time, we aren't going anywhere near it!!!

Where do I start the rooms were dirty misfitted sheets on the bed no room service no customer service just the biggest disappointment ever the showboat has sunk. Called front desk never received a call back nor anybody came to open the safe provide us with coffee proper sheeting for the bed I was told that the maid service don't need to come and clean the room every day they come upon a request I went about 40 rooms a year and this is the worst that I ever rented. Too bad I can't rate a big fat zero because that is what they would get. O and pool i was told it been under construction forever. Just a joke

Stayed in the suite with a friend and it was gross to say the least. I was thinking since it was a suite it would be at least clean. There were stains on the furniture, broken countertop (cracked glass which was dangerous), pealed paint, and a odor in the hallway. I remember only positive memories of the show boat but it has certainly changed. If I was not meeting friends I would of left.
