Had a great anniversary trip with my wife to the Golden Nugget. I can't comment on the gambling since we aren't gamblers but the facility offers a lot of benefits in the summer compared to our usual stays at the Borgata. We booked a standard gold tower room and revived a room on the 10th floor with a view of... More

Not sure why all the good reviews...Golden nugget is a 1978 hotel rehabed with smoke and mirrors...This place is the worst. Little to no management, dirty, smelly rooms. Rude employees, 45 minute wait for valet...Just really bad... We attempted to check in at 4:00pm but were told our room would not be ready till 5 5:30pm so just go sit... More

This was our first visit to the. golden nugget. We were really hoping to see something at least o.k. but we were disappointed. It is kind of very small place. I did not stay more than an hour or two. We went to the casino next door and had a great time.

After reviewing the hotels in AC, we chose the Golden Nugget for the price, rooms and pool. The kids were happy at the pool. The room was clean. The breakfast buffet was excellent for families. The only exception would be housekeeping cleaning the rooms while we were still in them, even when we asked for the rooms to not be... More

Frequent guests at the GN/AC and we are never disappointed. Staff is friendly, knoweldgable and outgoing. Casino is on the small side, but recent upgrades to tables and machines make it exciting and attractive. H20 pool area is one of the best.

We were staying at Harrah's and decided to walk over to GN to see what all the talk was about. We left confused. We go to AC regularly, 7-8 times a year, and always stay at Total Rewards casinos. When looking for hotels we usually see that GN is twice the price of other similar hotels and wonder why. Upon... More

So here we are, trying to have a relaxing overnight stay for our anniversary. We checked in, dropped off our luggage then headed downstairs to lose some money have have some drinks and munchies before dinner. Three hours later we head upstairs to relax before getting ready for 8 pm dinner reservations at Chart House (excellent by the way). My... More

This facility is a first class hotel/casino away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Atlantic City. The sleeping accommodations are recently renovated with ultra-modern furnishing. There is a variety of restaurants with different prices and food selections. The Chart House is especially enjoyable, however the wait staff was slow and inattentive. The breakfast buffet is outstanding. The attached free... More

We stayed here for the first time. We had a late check in but hotel was very accomendating, since I called for a late check in. Got to our room and had an awesome view of the pool. Went down to gamble and figured why not stay another night. Price was very reasonable. Breakfast buffet was delicious. Spent second day... More

In the old days of Trump Marina you would have to be wondering what sins you had committed to wind up in such a rats nest. After the new renovation by the Golden Nugget this place is a breath of fresh air in a city littered with overpriced mega casinos. Its small sized is embraced and extremely well executed.
