“It was ok!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

My husband and I stayed for a couple days in October for our anniversary. We were impressed by the room renovations. They were nice and considerably upscale, for the price. However we notice very quickly how cheaply they were built. We had to change rooms because we couldn’t get the awkward bathroom door open. Also the rooms walls were so cheap, we could hear the TV and the conversation in the next room and outside in the hallway.

For the price I guess its okay. However if you cherish your sleep and privacy, I wouldn’t stay at the Golden Nugget AC.

Room Tip: DO NOT purchase the VIP package; it’s not worth the additional cost. TRUST ME!

Stayed several days after Thanksgiving and was impressed with the renovations and staff. The food was excellent and the dinning staff were very helpful. The hotel room was very comfortable and clean. To sum it up we were treated with respect and enjoyed all aspects of our stay.

I was the planner for 300 professional for a symposium. this was by far the best experience i've ever had. been doing this for 20 years and have used a number of the hotels in Atlantic City. this was the first time that thetre were no issues to desl with. the Staff that works with Donna Ward we efficient, accomodating, flexible and spot on every time. Rooms were great. (real upgrade from the previous owners) . Food was wonderful at the reception, breakfast, luncheon and breaks. the only issue was i couldnt take the cake home.

Check in and check out were prompt and courteous. The room was gorgeous. Bathroom was great except I tried to take a bath and the drain wouldn't stay shut. The air conditioning wasn't working so our room was a little stuffy.

Stayed at the newly rennovated Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino in Atlantic city. The check in was quick and the staff was very friendly. The hotel room itself was worth the stay, there was a large screen TV, a wonderfule view of the Bay and most important the bed was fabulous.The bed was very comfortable and the linens great. Room was very fresh and clean.

A great staff. Willing to do what ever they can to make our stay trouble free. Check in only took a couple minutes.The room was decorated tastefully with a wonderful view. The food was excellent. The place is very clean and has everything you need for an enjoyable visit. Plenty of entertainment. We will go back again.

The only reason I did not give this hotel a rating of "Excellent" is because the walls are paper thin. A phone conversation in the next room actually woke me up.

Other than that, this hotel is amazing. I cannot say enough about how friendly the staff were. Everywhere we went, different staff members were asking if we needed anything of if there was anything they could get for us.
For summer travelers, be advised this hotel is not beach front; be prepared to drive about 3 miles to the beach.
The hotel room itself exceed all expectations. The rooms were very modern and well decorated and lit. The shower/bathroom area is chic but a bit on the small side. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying the Atlantic City Area.
