I've stayed at Bally's for an annual event the last two years, my expectations are low. The prices are high, the hotel is very old and hasn't seen a significant update in 20-30 years. I stayed again in the Claridge Tower, which was beautiful in it's heyday but now it's just old. It looks neglected, and if you had been to the Claridge before Bally's took it over you'll be heartbroken at how they let this grand old lady go down the tubes. It used to be a beautiful well maintained and classy establishment.
The bed is comfortable but the sheets are too small for the king size beds so you end up sleeping on the mattress at some point during the night assuming you could get under the blanket without taking the sheets off the bed. The room hadn't been cleaned well prior to our arrival or during our stay. Our room had a wet bar but the refrigerator was in the television cabinet on the other side of the room. There was a coffee maker but no place to plug it in without moving it to another part of the room or the bathroom.
The bathrooms are small and ancient, water pressure it pretty good, there are some nice views. The building connections are confusing. It looks like what it is, a bunch of old hotels, with makeshift connections between them. It's not a resort by any stretch, the Claridge pool is free but the pool in Bally's tower is $10.00 a day.
It's not worth the $250 room rate for the Saturday night stay, I've spent much less on much nicer rooms in NYC and Chicago with much better service.
