Just completed our second stay at Bally's and have decided that it's one of the best places for our needs and budget, but travelers who haven't been to A/C shoud be aware of the negatives.
First, the positives: It is right at the center of the Boardwalk; has indoor access to Ceasar's, Wild Wild West and Claridge; a fine selection of slots; the largest smoking area in A/C and adequate restaurant choices.
Our room "Tower" room (4539) and was well-appointed with two pillow-top beds, fridge and spacious bath with tub and shower. This particular room also had a nice view at night...not the ocean (t's just dark at night anyway), but the lights over A/C. The Tower is well-located for us...near the lobby and easy access to the casino floor.
The pool and spa area are still the same...very nice with whirlpools and lounging areas overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, but weak on the dressing/locker room end.
Now on to the negatives: Restaurant choices are somewhat limited right now at Bally's. The cafe is closed for renovations and there is construction on the sixth (dining) floor.
The only 24-hour choice is Pickles Deli located at the Boardwalk entrance on the casino floor. If you are a Harrah's diamond member, the Diamond Lounge on the sixth floor is very nice though hours are limited.
The biggest negative: Harrah's should take a more pro-active stance on keeping derelicts out of the casino. I was bothered several times by dazed bums late at night while playing slots near the Boardwalk entrance at Bally's. I've never felt physically threatened (they each seemed far too stoned to out-run me), but it is uncomfortable to be approached by people asking for cigarettes and money while you're just trying to play your slot game in peace. I ended up leaving that area and going farther into the casino to avoid them.
