Hi everyone, this is my 2nd thread since I wanted to get some fresh feedback... I'll try my very best to hopefully make this my last thread!
ok, here's the scoop...
My girlfriend and I are planning on coming down for March 10,11,12 and leaving on the 13th.
The first day is a Saturday, and as we all know, the Saturday rates are really high.
So my gf and I thought maybe it be a good idea to save a few dollars by staying on the more expensive night, Saturday, at the Quality Inn Absecon, NJ.
Harrahs 3 night stay (1 night free promo) would come to ~ $300
Where as if we do hotel hopping, we''ll cut our cost in half ...~ $150
This would mean more money iin our pockets to spend on restaurants, and other things and less guilt when we donate our money to the casinos :) Taking into consideration that we are renting a car from Montreal, Gas, etc.. and that we're relatively young etc... we need to keep a budget... Of course, we're willing to spend, we just want to be wise about it.
Naturally the cons are that, Saturday night we're likely going to stay out late (whether at the Harrahs pool / night club, or near the boardwalk),so it'll be a bit annoying to drive back to the Quality Inn... and means I'll have to watch what I drink.
Also, have to consider extra costs that might figure in if we stay in Absecon 1 night - parking at the casino (?), time, annoyance etc...
So from your experiences, are we pinching too much here, and would this be one of those occasions where we'd be best off to just spend the extra? and maybe play a few less hands of black jack or slots ;)
Sorry if this post seems misplaced, just curious about other opinions!
