I have stayed at the Golden Nugget AC probably 10 times since it has been redone (it was the Old Trump Marina). The rooms are very nice here - comfortable bed, clean, good views, nice up to date bathrooms. The pool are is also very nice. Along with the main pool there are hot tubs and a pool that you can sit in a chair and wet your feet. There is also a fire pit at the pool/bar area. There is a good choice of resturants at this hotel also. I highly recommend the Italian Rest. Grotto that is right on the casino floor. Also, Michael Patricks Brass. is good for breakfast and lunch. The french toast is delicious here. In the warm weather try the Deck which is on the marina side. This is a good place for a few drinks and a bite to eat and to enjoy the scenery. They also have live bands. I love the location of this hotel (along with Harrahs) because you are away from the boardwalk. I love AC but hate the boardwalk in the summer, but love it in the fall and winter when it's quiter and less kids and tourist. From the Golden Nugget you can catch the jitney that willt ak you over to all of the hotels including the Borgata and Harrahs. The only drawback at the Golden Nugget is that the casino slot machines can use a little updating (there appears to be some of the older machines still here from when the hotel was the Trump Marina) but duirng last visit in July they have made some improvements. I am going to the GN this weekend. If you are not a member od their rewards program you shoudl join it so you can enjoy the perks!

Room Tip: All the rooms are really nice! The rooms facing the marina are nicer but I don't spend much time...

Although I didn't stay here, my son, who is 20 had booked a room. At no time during the check in process, nor on their website is their any indication that the minimum check in age is 21. When I called to verify that my son would be able to check in, I was told that it's New Jersey state law. He was told at the front desk that it was because there is a Casino. None of this is accurate. If the hotel has a policy of a minimum check in, I would fully understand that. They should indicate this in their literature, and on their website. They don't. Luckily the front end manager (Not the Main manager), assisted my son in securing a room at a nearby hotel.

Sonya B, Manager at Golden Nugget, responded to this review, September 12, 2013
Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience that your son experienced at our hotel this week. We are sorry that he was not aware of the regulation mandated that all guests must be 21 and older to check in to a casino hotel in Atlantic City. This information is outlined on much of our collateral and detailed under the Terms and Conditions of the Rooms Reservation section on our website.

We also want to thank you for acknowledging the Staff Member, who displayed the Golden Nugget high standards of customer service, by assisting your son in acquiring accommodations at a non casino property that does not have to follow the same strict regulations that we do.

Thank you for your feedback and for your understanding of the policies and procedures we must adhere to.

Had a great time at the nugget. Haven is a great club for those in the club scene. During the day, the deck is awesome to hang out, grab some cheap drinks and they usually have a live band on the water. Rooms are super new and clean. Vegas style pool party on 8th floor. Everything you need for much cheaper than most AC casinos!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Golden Nugget AC. We met a hostess named Amelia Lopez at the Michael Patrick's restaurant. She was very friendly and she made my dad and I feel welcome. Nice people make all the difference. Overall We had a fun time. We will be back.

I will try to be as fair as possible and thus will lead with the disclaimer that I am not a huge Atlantic City person, nor a Casino Hotel person. And I’m spoiled by most hotels being 100% non-smoking.

My husband and I stayed at the Golden Nugget because we were attending the Blondie concert that night and thought it would be best to stay over rather than drive home very late. The room rate was a bit steep, but again, for the sake of convenience, we decided it would be worth it.
The Pros:
Excellent, friendly staff.
Easy, affordable parking (only $5, no matter how many times you leave/enter during your stay).
Clean rooms.
Comfy King bed.
Choice of non-smoking room.
12pm Check Out.
Good food options directly in the hotel.
Awesome pool area.
Quick, courteous response to noise complaint.
Cons:
Poor air quality.
Uncomfortable pillows (but that's a total personal preference).
Very thin doors and walls.
We wouldn't have minded the thin door and walls so much, except that at 3am, our neighbors (4 females) rolled in screaming, laughing going on and on about not having their key. They finally got in their room after about ten minutes. Then, someone proceeded to run the hair dryer for about ten minutes right next to the connecting door to our room. At the same time, another girl in the hall was on her phone having a loud argument with the person on the other end. Security came up and asked her to get back in her room and she obliged after about five minutes of arguing that there were much noisy girls out in the hallway only minutes ago.
The location was great for us as we were attending the concert at the hotel, but if you are looking for an AC hotel, do know that this hotel is not on the boardwalk. It is, however, only a few minutes drive to the boardwalk. It's in Brigantine, near the Borgata and Harrah's. If you don’t mind stale, recycled air and you’re looking to whoop it up into the wee hours of the morning, then this hotel is quite nice and you’ll have a good time. Unfortunately for us, it’s the first hotel that we’ve spent such a large amount on a room and had to take a nap upon getting home to actually get some rest.
