This was my tenth (or so) time staying at Bally's in A/C. It was a two-day jaunt, having been lured there with some generous offers of free slot play, free dining, spa credit, and gift cards. I've been tempted to try one of the Garden or Dennis Tower rooms just to see what they are like, but in the end, always choose the Bally's Tower since I know the room will be good (if not great).
Room 4639 was fine and located just off the elevator (good for me). The room had two queen beds, sitting area, expansive view of the marina, and large bathroom with shower/tub combo. Apparently, this room can also be leased as a two bedroom suite and connects via a door (locked).
My only complaint about the room was that the people in the adjoining suite were apparently smoking an "illegal substance" which was noticed by myself very quickly (I put towels at the base of the adjoining door on day one), but was only noticed by hotel security after a full 48 hours. On day three of my stay, I had just gotten out of the shower and dressed when a loud knock was heard on my door. I opened it to find FIVE hotel employees (one from the front desk, several security, one maid) who wanted to inspect my room for the offending substance. After a quick walk in, Front Desk Man determined that my room "wasn't the one" so they apologized and left. In the end, it wasn't that much of an inconvenience, but I thought later how much different it would have been had they arrived thirty minutes earlier (me, in the shower).
Other than that, this was a great visit. I find that the games are more generous, the staff more accommodating and the perks are better in A/C than in Vegas. At my last meal (Six Bistro), I was using a $75 comp. I had a steak, salad, desert and even a sandwich to go, but still found myself with $20 of extra money at check out. In Vegas, they would have just sent me on my way...not so here! The check out lady told me I still had money to spend and offered me a selection of pretzels, drinks or candies to take home. Nice touch.
The Bally's central location on the Boardwalk can't be beat. Gaming is varied and the easy covered walk to Wild Wild West and Caesars makes it that much better.
The spa remains nice but was populated with lots of kids this time. It has a pool, several hot-tubs and sunning patio (with bar) overlooking the ocean. On my dates, there was a $20 per person fee to use the pool and spa facility. For $40, you can get the herbal wrap (30 minute treatment) and use the pool and spa for free, so that's what I did and was not disappointed.
I left a tiny bit lighter in the wallet, but had a nice relaxing stay and enjoyed myself.
