I've only been to AC once when some friends and me went up for a night and drove back the next morning. No sleep is obviously not the best way to drive. We made it back, but it wasn't smart. I'll be going up again soon, and I would like to get a room for a cheaper rate than at the casinos (that way more money to gamble ). It will just be used to get some shuteye before driving home. I was hoping there'd be a place where it's safe to walk between it and the boardwalk/casinos. I know you basically don't want to leave the boardwalk area, so does such a hotel exist? Any chain hotel would be fine.
