Let me preface my review by stating that there is tremendous variation within each of the major AC casino hotels: You can stay at a given hotel and have a fantastic room, and come back to the very same hotel a week later and have a miserable time. A lot of this depends on luck of the draw, but it also depends on how busy the hotel is. If you stay on a holiday weekend, you’ll likely get a crummy room (unless you’re a whale or pay for an upgrade), but if you stay on a weeknight in the off-season, and you may get a very nice room.
Having said that, for my money, I think Caesar’s is one of the best AC hotel values on the strip. Yes, Borgata/Water Club/Revel are newer and nicer, but the price increase (maybe double) is not worth it in comparison to Caesar’s. If you can avoid the Temple Tower (with rooms overlooking the check-in desk), you should.
All of the rooms I’ve stayed at at Caesar’s have been very nice: The rooms are decent sized. The bathrooms are very large, have a separate room for the toilet, and utilize marble (or at least impressive faux-marble) tiling. All of the rooms we’ve stayed in include a complimentary refrigerator—not a wet bar that charges you if you touch something—which comes in very handy. There is plenty of lighting throughout the room. Bed was very comfortable. Good size flat-screen HD TV. Views vary considerably from room to room. Some rooms have a high-quality soundbar, while others have an MP3 clock radio. Perhaps the best feature is the hotel’s location: Right in the middle of the heart of the boardwalk, so if you want to walk to a different restaurant or try your luck at a neighboring casino, you can do so easily. Plus, the Pier Shops contain shops, restaurants (although not AC’s best), mini golf, and a laser light show, all of which are connected to Caesar’s so you don’t have to step outside if you don’t want to.
As for the negatives: While I have not heard noise from neighboring rooms (i.e., the interior walls seem thick enough), every morning the cleaning ladies are extremely loud and may wake you up. Others have noted the obnoxious sign at the front desk which says you will pay $10 if you want to check in prior to 4pm. I understand if your room is not available, but isn’t it in everyone’s interest to spread out customers’ arrival times? Similarly, we asked to extend our checkout by one hour (from noon to 1pm), and they said there would be a $60 charge. Come on! Other annoying policies include charging for the fitness center (which is woefully inadequate), pool, and wireless. When we set the thermostat, the temperature in the room didn’t quite make it to what we wanted. I believe this is an “environmental” plan they’ve employed, which really means they’re just trying to save their own utility costs.
All in all, I think this is a great value hotel in AC—a nice hotel in a great location for a reasonable price.
