The hotel is beautiful and our room had a stunning view of the Marina. The room rates are very affordable. Check in was quick and we liked the many amenities within the hotel (gift shop, stores, restaurant).
I was hesitant about booking since many people mentioned it is not on the boardwalk. I did not realize how far it was until we go there. We arrived by public transport so our option was to take the Jitney that would come every few minutes. It is convenient but just seemed like a drag to have to take that every time instead of being able to just step out on the boardwalk.
There's no amenities in walking distance outside of hotel either, like no store to get snacks (instead of paying high price inside hotel)
I would not recommend this location to anyone without a car. Having just come from staying in Manhattan and being able to walk to so many places, it felt kind of like a ghost town at the Golden Nugget.
The buffet left much to be desired. I really hope they improve it as for that price there should be better quality and more of a selection.
Also I was disappointed there was a $10 fee just to use the gym each time! That's awful!!! Why would they charge that?
I could also agree the walls in the room were very thin as we could always hear the neighbors.
