When you envision the Boardwalk hotel, think of a classic old-style arcade along a beach, with hot-dogs, laid back atmosphere and fun. It IS very cheap here - although recommendations are that you stay with the tower rooms which are newer, vs the Luna Park rooms which are older and very dingy.

The dining options are pretty simple - a buffet, deli, coffee spot and sushi bar. They've got a casino of course, and a small pool area, but reviews say that the pools are always full of locals.
Very inexpensive, and a great 'launching point' for those who just need a place to sleep.
All comparison prices were done on the same day for all hotels. While I can't keep this up to date each month, you will be able to see how they are priced relative to each other.
