Just returned from a 2 night charter junket and I believe a fair rating would be 3.5 stars overall but 4 stars if you are lucky enough to get a Waterfront Tower room like we did. Our room was a spacious King on the 21st floor with wall to wall windows with a view of the Boardwalk hotels, the Borgata and local area waterways. The 42" flat-screen wall mounted TV worked fine but did not have a HD connection. I'd recommend brining your own shampoo, mouthwash and body wash as they only provide a cheap quality product. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were just adequate and were also of cheap quality. Room cleanliness was about a 8 out of 10. Pretty good but not good enough for those that are more fussy than us. Yes, some nicks on furniture and the odd stain on hallway carpet but this is a busy party type resort so that's to be expected. It's too big to stay on top of every single issue. That didn't bother us at all.
As for restaurants we refuse to pay $80 for 2 buffets so we ate at SammyD's one night and to get a great meal we took the Jitney to Revel for a great dinner at Lugo's. SammyD's was good for breakfast but pricey at $35 for 2 and less than acceptable for the price we paid for dinner with cold fries and so-so entrees. Tazza's looked like a great deli style restaurant but the food was tasteless an their coffee was subpar and it was highly over-priced plus they charge 2 comp dollars for every dollar you spend in there so if you use comps like we do you are paying double.
The casino is confusing at first but once you walked around a few times you got the hang of it. I'd like to see more variety and more updated slot machines and like all Caesar's properties the casino slots are among the tightest in the industry. Revel sets the standard in AC as far as were concerned. Great casino with spotless slots that are up to date and fun to play and often give you a fighting chance to play awhile on your money.
Overall, we liked this place. After reading many reviews here we both agreed it exceeded our expectations but we disagreed about if we would return. My wife said NO FREE WIFI - NO RETURN. Revel was free. The casino is actually nicer than Caesars, Showboat and Bally's but all 4 of them need updating.
Tip: Use the Jitney bus service. It's fast and they run regularly and it's only $2.25 per person. Signs spell out their service and it's easy to figure out which number Jitney goes where. Better than waiting up to 45 minutes for the Caesars shuttle where you might get bumped if you are not at least Diamond status.
Biggest complaint/surprise: In this day and age NO FREE WIFI. Hard to believe. Common Harrah's - get up to speed!!
