“Just average and non-descript”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Spent one night in a two-queen room while attending a show nearby. While the room was clean on the surface, everything feels a bit dated and rundown. We'd requested a non-smoking room, and got one on the 44th floor, but all night long all we could smell was cigarette smoke. It just felt unclean altogether. From the lobby to the decrepit elevators to the bed spreads, all could stand a bit of polish or replacement.

Breakfast in the room was insanely expensive for what it was. We had the same meal in a NYC deli the day before for half the price.

The plusses were that self-park was dirt cheap and we could walk through the casinos to the concert venue, which meant not having to go out in the cold or worry about a coat all night.

Probably wouldn't return. The casino scene and the run down feeling is just a turnoff.

Room Tip: "Non-smoking floors" don't necessarily mean you won't smell cigarette smoke all ni...

We booked this hotel at a off- peak days of the week at a special rate offered by Expedia. This is our first time stay at the hotel. The Chairman is the only place that looked brand new every where. The king bed room was very spacious. E had a great view from 93rd floor. The only bad thing was there were no shows durin the week and we had to go to another casino. We will stay her again.

Free wifi. Free indoor heated pool. By the boardwalk. In front of the shore. You got to love this hotel. Nice front office staff. Great vibe with its own little promenade. What is there to hate? Parking is free. Casino is nice. Buffet okay. Get the chairmans tower. Ill be back.

We just returned from a 2 day bus trip where we stayed at the Taj Mahal and I have to say that the Taj Mahal is in need of some serious updating! Our room was not exactly clean....they never emptied the coffee pot from the previous guest before us. Stains of unknown origin on curtains and floor. We had to wipe down things ourself in the room. The remote was DISJUSTING and did not work a lot of the time correctly. Bathroom was a bit sketchy as well. A face cloth was left in the hallway for 1 entire day and not picked up. We could hear everything in the room next to us. Pool is only open until 6pm, 5pm if you have kids with you. The comps offered were good though I have to say that. There were some issues with the buffet lines and it seems like they just don't have enough staff employed there at the hotel to keep things running smoothly. I know that Donald Trump himself would never stay in a room like we had. Hotel windows were dirty and really need to be cleaned. I know they layed off a lot of help there and it shows. I think I would like to stay at The Borgata or Revel the next time. We visited both on this trip and they were just incredible, shiny and new.

The hotel was a cross between a motel and something else. Not quiet sure what it was. The place was dirty and unkept. The casino was dark and felt depressing. It took us a while to find where the rooms were located since we did not get a map at the recipetionist. The people working there were friendly. The room was not worth the price we paid for them. Definitely not going to stay there again!

Very nice place!! Stayed for 3 nites during midweek in Sept. '12'. Weather was perfect!! SUPERB DEAL!! Booked 2 months in advance. Great ocean view. Didn't go to gamble...just to getaway and relax. Room was very clean and up to date. Small coffee pot and fridge in room. Friendly environment. Did not walk too far away from the Taj...not a great area...but out of that district was beautiful!! Not much at all to complain about.

Not a big gambler but the Trump does offer nice comps for even the low level player. In addition, unlike other casinos they will even place you in a nicer room such as one in the Chairman Tower. Some of the hotel is dated in comparison to other Casinos but overall very nice property.
