Positive Experiences at Boardwalk Casinos - Excluding Revel

SInce Sandy's attack on AC, do any of the AC Posters have some postivie aspects they can report on casinos such as Tropicana, Trump, Boardwalk an TAJ . There's been a lot of activity on Revel, probably more posts on one thread alone than all other boardwalk Casinos Combined, Just wonder if we take a trip in the next few weeks, are some positive recommendation on Casinos between and including AC Club and Showboat. It's not that I am not interested in Revel, but it seems to have a ton of comments one way or another.

I hope we can exclude, Revel, and non-boardwalk Casinos (e.g. Harrahs, GN and Borgata in this one from folks who frequent the board Casinos.

Earl of Sandwich in Showboat seems to get plenty of action.

Caesars has always done right by me and continues to be my home base. Have never had a bad stay there and their Sunday Brunch is fantastic.

Tropicana is my favorite always love the quarter! Pf changs and the palm are my favorite dining choices. Taj Mahal has a great food court and nice choices of dining too, I like their noodle bar Rim. Atlantic Club has loose slots and free parking

I can recommend Caesars. It's one of my usual home bases (along with Harrah's), and I just spent a few days there, barely leaving the property.

The rooms in the Centurion and Ocean Towers are very nice, and despite what you may read here, the Temple rooms are fine. I had a Centurion Tower room with a view of the ocean, which I was happy with.

I had the Sunday champagne brunch at Nero's, which I enjoyed. The food, the service, the ambience, and the ocean views are all very nice. I also had a great massage at Qua and enjoyed some time in the spa.

I think the casino at Caesars is fun. The table limits weren't as high as I had feared on Saturday night ($10-$15 minimums depending on the game), and I like the dealers at Caesars. I don't usually play slots or pay much attention to them, but I did notice on this trip that Caesars had a lot of what looked to me like bright, flashy, and new video slots.

I've always had good drink service at the tables, and I like the bartenders at Toga (though I don't like what Caesars has done to the bar in recent years).

I think Caesars has a great location in the middle of the boardwalk, with the Pier connected and the outlets nearby.

I don't think Caesars is perfect, but you asked for positives. Overall, I always enjoy staying and playing there.

Lauren,

Nice summary. I think the infrequent readers of tha AC forum often are searching for reasons and places to consider on the AC boardwalk. I hope to see a few more positive responses that potential AC visitors would like to know about and see.

Unfortunately Reval bashing/defending seems to be in vogue in the Post Sady era.

It is not about a casino, but IMHO, it's worth watching. Duality Winter Sweet [preview here] atlanticcitynj.com/visitors/…lightshow.aspx projected onto the exterior of Boardwalk Hall is certainly worth watching. And it's FREE

Sneak a better peak at the Boardwalk Winter Sweet show here:

Much better seeing it live and nice train parts, but anyone who enjoys winter trains should also check this:

All is well and alive along the Boardwalk with free drinks for players at Showboat bars!

I've only ever stayed at Showboat. Only gambled at Showboat and Borgata. Have fun at both. Love staying at Showboat, never a bad room, know my way around there and feel comfortable there. Will definitely stay there again, although hubby wants to maybe try Ceasars sometime. Love staying on the boardwalk and taking a nice walk back and forth :)
