We stayed at the Water Club by Borgata for 3 nights while in town for the NJ Police-Security Expo. It wasn't an Expo hotel but the price with a My Borgata Rewards card was comparable. And worth it. We were on the 15th floor in a Club Room. The room was very clean and we didn't notice any of the stains mentioned by other reviewers. There was a refrigerator in the room which was great. The handle on the cabinet door was broken and the dresser was a little beat up. The bathroom was spotless and the shower was a treat. Big, fluffy towels. Plenty of hot water but the temperature control took some getting used to. The second day housekeeping must have left before they finished? The bathroom had been cleaned and bed made but they left a rag on the dresser and the coffee cups were left in the bathroom sink. Not a huge deal as everything else was done.
The doors slam unless you hold them until it's closed. We heard a lot of door slamming all night long. Not terribly considerate of other guests. No other noise though.
I was able to use the adult only pool 2 times. It was busy the first day and fewer people the second. It was clean and as other reviewers have commented, the chairs are extremely close together. The pool attendants were very attentive and were removing towels from unoccupied chairs. Very loud music which isn't a problem, it was the type of music. Not a fan but I tuned it out. The indoor pool was a nice, quiet respite from the outdoor pool deck. I pretty much had it to myself when I'd had enough sun.
When you walk into the hallway to the Water Club from the Borgata casino it was like entering a different world. Quiet and smelled clean and fresh. Loved that!! Everyone we encountered was friendly and had a smile.
Wifi is not free which is rather annoying in this day and age. We paid for the "faster" wifi and it was adequate but not great.
We parked in the surface lot and it was only $5.00 and you could come and go-just needed to wait for a receipt.
Casino-it did smell smoky when near the smoking sections. I expected A LOT worse based on reviews but to me it was a non issue. We weren't there to gamble but spent a little time and a little money while there. Pretty sure I won't get anything comped on my next visit-lol.
We will definitely stay there again next year.
