Rank the AC CET properties - kinda long winded

History - I have spent many years at Mohegan, then Foxwoods, then Borgata and then my boy told me that he has been going to the House of Blues and I should give the CET properties a try cuz their rewards are linked to Vegas. I tried Harrah's because it was right across from Borgata, been going to Harrah's for the last two months, always for an overnighter.

Review - Overall, the casino area (tables and slots, haven't tried the DL yet) is decent, cleaner feeling even, than the aging Mo, Fox and Bor.

Q - I haven't been to the other CET properties in AC and would like to know how you would rank them overall, casino+hotel+crowd in total and if I should consider part of a casino separately, like House of Blues in Showboat?

From your post, I think you would prefer Harrahs to the others as far as hotel, crowd, etc. It feels newer and nicer and less neglected. No bums off the boardwalk,

On the Boardwalk, I prefer Showboat over Ballys and Caesars because the lighting is brighter and it feels less hectic. Sure wish the Borgata were brighter but it is still My Happy Place. Dark just feels dingier to me.

One other thing, I prefer the music that is played over the speakerts at Showboat and Caesars LOL

I've been addicted to Showboat for 8 years now. Mostly because I win there, but also because I know a lot of the staff and my host is a peach. I dabble in Harrahs and Caesars but haven't been to Bally's since it was decorated in green (like 30 years ago).

I rank them this way:

1) Caesars - My Home Base

2) Ballys - Because It's Connected To Caesars & I Can Casino Hop

3) Showboat

4) Harrahs - If It Were On The Boardwalk, I'd Rank It Second.

1. Bally's - home base and love the corner king rooms in Bally's Tower. Love the folks at reception and once loved the DL. The whole pool/spa is critically under-appreciated.

2. Harrah's- has the most to offer "in house" and really can feel like a resort. Have been known to use a buffet coupon for just a chopped salad and a gelato. Chopped salads are gone-- at least I was told they would be.

3. Showboat- Aside from their tricking me into a smoke-smelling room (twice!) I have no complaints other than the views (from rooms) are pretty much gone. Love the personnel at the Boat.

4. Caesar's- I play there a lot and I love the convenience of staying there. I can leave a losing slot machine and be inside Chico's licking my wounds in less than five minutes.

In truth, I have not been to AC since August and I am still pretty angry with them, but I love looking at the ocean so I will probably make it there sometime this month, and I will probably stay at Bally's.
