The positve reviews are spot on regarding Atlantic Club. We just returned from a weekend trip to see the NJ HS wrestling tournament and the Atlantic Club welcomed us with open arms. Granted the hotel still has the original Golden Nugget features, it utilized them with a charm.
I booked the weekend on one of their packages which gave us great weekend rates, $100 per room casino comps and $25 per room Dizzy Dolphin Bar comps, free valet and a late 2PM check out..since I booked 2 rooms the $50 for the DD during their 10 PM 2 hr happy hour went a very long way with good live music being played. The $200 in casino slot comp didnt go so well but ...
Valet service for check in - great and quick. hotel check in - moderate 15-20 mins with no line. only 2 check in clerks working. Casino redemtion - moderate to slow not many windows open. Bell service for luggage to the room - very fast once check in was completed. As far the personality of all the workers - fantastic, very friendly and helpful. Check out was the same moderate.
Room - I had adjoining rooms ($10 tip at check- in secured that) 724-726 faced south nice views, large size very clean one room was a king, other has 2 doubles. everyone had more than enough room and storage place. Bedding was ok - pillows not good nor where there enough of them. I've read that on many reviews but overall I give the room a solid B
Casino - small and smokey but if you like penny slots, you wont have issues here. there are a ton of them. table game, no issues finding a seat. staff - friendly
Dizzy Dolphin - well worth it - especially during their happy hours. in the warmer months they have a beach bar as well
Cafe' ate there for breakfast 2X's - reasonable, tasty good service can get crowed
BB's - burger resturant very good especially for a light burger lunch - staff friendly food good
Patsy - we had a part of 20 for Patsy's , it took them 1/2 past our reservation time (9:00PM)to get the table ready but it was well worth it. Food was very good, portions large, 1/2 of the table had family style while the other had off the menu. all was great. George was our main server and he did a very good job with such a large party. Price - extremely reasonable for the quality of food and portion size
Negatives - nothing for kids, they got rid of their game room and the pool is only open to 8PM. Although the Tropicana is almost next door which has a lot for younger kids and teens, it is still outside the hotel. Hopefully the new management team (Poker Stars) will address that.
Location - since it is the last casino hotel on the south side you do have to walk to get to the action which is about a 15 minute (Boardwalk Hall) and up walk. Since AC is not the safest town to walk around, it does make you leary to be out very late on the boardwalk without a group.
Staff - although extremely friendly and work hard, they do need to add staff to all departments to speed things up especially at check and casino redemption
Elevators - slow
Overall I would most certainly stay here again, the party we were with at dinner expressed the same, especially for the value and all were staying at other hotels.
