Went to Bally's AC for 4 days/ 3 nights, 6/24- 6/27, with my 91 1/2 y/o Mom. She likes the slots & I like the beach!! The staff was polite & accommodating. Check in at front desk was a breeze. We arrived around 1PM and asked for early check in. The housekeeper was cleaning the room but the desk clerk said she would text me when the room was ready. We went for lunch and received a text that the room was ready about 1 1/4 hours later. We picked up the room cards and headed to the 36th floor in Bally's Tower. Well the common areas were nice and clean but when I entered the requested smoking room I couldn't believe how these previous smokers had ciggy burns on the rug and on the furniture tops. Other than that the room was comfy, had an ocean view and the beds afforded a good nights sleep. Ok the room was kinda dated but the brass fixtures in the bathroom with marble floors were elegant. Great lighting and water pressure also. So Mom gambled and I explored. Across from the hotel on the beach was The Beach Bikini Bar. Lots of people hanging out while a live band played and sang; girls clad in orange bikinis taking your beverage orders. This is the New AC for sure. Since the Stupid Storm Sandy there are now dunes and sea grass all along the sand, which means you cannot see the ocean as you stroll along the boardwalk! Safety first. I did notice that all those creepy, smelly gift shops along the water side are all gone. Nice sturdy buildings now hold the shops for souvenirs. Went to check out the pool the next morning and they charged $5 for access but you got a towel and a small bottle of water. The roof top sun area was cool, breezy, lots of nice loungers & no sticky sand. Only prob is that you have the humming of machines on the roof but after a while you get use to the drone like sounds. The indoor pool was congested with kids all day. The adults could swim from 5P- 6P! Gee thanxs. The whirlpools are a plenty and very relaxing. Seems that there is a lounge/ dining area near the pool level but it was not operational. The bar outside by the lounge chairs was also not operational. The casino was comfortable with plenty of slots. My Mom uses a "wheelie" and the access for her rolling about was great. Johnny Rockets makes the best burgers & shakes. They have a spot at the base of the hotel on the boards. There are lots of choices for dining throughout Bally's for breakfast (Corner Cafe), lunch (Johnny Rockets, Pickles Deli) & dinner (Noodle Village- service is incredibly SLOW). Guy Fieri's Chophouse hand not opened yet as it was in the process of being built. All in all it was a nice trip and Mom had a great time.
