Hey everyone!!

We are thinking of taking a quick trip to AC sometime in August.

I mean the last time I went to AC was like in 2005 however, I did not stay in any hotels. This time around a group of us is going and I'm wondering what hotel is nice to stay in? Cleanliness and comfort are most important.

Has anyone been and stayed in AC recently? Please share your experience with me as far as your hotel stay, the boardwalk / beach? I'd appreciate it! Thanks!!

My favorite is the Borgata because it offers a real luxury experience. I haven't been to Revel yet, which is supposed to be the same style casino, but I know it's been having problems. Tropicana was my old favorite but I haven't been there much lately.

Revel is quite the resort, very luxorious. Truly a destination. However, weekends are completely sold out thru summer. I'd give the nod to Revel over Borgata due to its location on beach / boardwalk in summer.

Borgata is great, very upscale and has a great energy / vibe to it. Great dining options that will be familiar to NYC folk. Both have numerous entertainment options, restaurants, nightclubs, bars, and of course gambling.

After that, Harrah's is decent, gets a younger crowd. Caeser's is well liked and has a great location. After that, the casinos start taking a turn for the worst. Be prepared though, a Saturday in the summer will set you back ~ $350 / night.

We stayed at the Tropicana recently and did not like it. Rooms are bare and barely maintained. The Chelsea is a nice boutique style older place. The rates are much better mid week anywhere as weekend rate are now sky high. As for the beach in AC, I prefer down by Hartford Ave in front of the old Golden Nugget/Hilton now Atlantic City Hotel. Just outside of AC in Galloway is the Stockton Seaview, a beautiful golf/spa resort with old world charm.

Thanks @ momonthemove... I don't mind staying off the boardwalk I think I only wanna stay for 1 night, I've been reading reviews on all hotels but you know some people make a BIG deal out of something so little and for that they can give a hotel a bad review even if the rooms are clean. I have this website called achotelexperts.com that has different pkgs for AC at reasonable rates, So we will see what happens. I get mixed reviews on Caesars, Golden Nugget, etc.

We just got back this evening from a night in AC - stayed at Caesar's for the third time. Two times we've booked premium rooms & both have been great. One time we went slightly cheaper with a deluxe room & that was only ok - the room was smaller & the only window overlooked the casino (no window to the outside). We usually end up picking Caesar's because they don't seem to have as high of a rate of reported bedbugs & I'm paranoid about that! The buffet this time wasn't so great - $25/person for a Monday breakfast. Next time we'll just stick with the small coffee place. The entire top floor of the casino is non-smoking - for us that's a huge positive because you can smell the difference. Downstairs is about 50/50. We didn't have much luck there gambling this time around - had better luck next door at the Trump Plaza. But we'll continue to stay at Caesar's, although never on a weekend since the prices on the weekends are way too high for what you get anywhere in AC.

@wisnowbird... What floor did you stay on? I was looking into Caesar's as well b/c I hear its centrally located to everything. Any suggestions on a good buffet?
