We are traveling by boat and stayed at Farley's Marina at Golden Nugget Casino. The marina was great but the price of dockage is high for transient boats. We are here for a wedding and events weeks before n after but the marina didn't care n charged top rate
You can get a seasonal slip cheeper then staying 6 weeks on E dock.
Take heed and know before you go.

This was a first time staying visit to GN we were given a complimentary very nice refurbished room although we were promised a suite but we were very happy with the room. The views of the bay was no so good since we are accustomed to ocean view when we stay on the boardwalk. We came in a Wednesday and left on Friday.As expected the place was dead and many shops closed. The pool was beautiful and the kids enjoyed it. Kids are only allowed until 2 pm but we like going in the morning so it didn’t bother us. The casino at night was ok. I don’t think I got one drink though I usually had a big dinner before gambling so I didn’t really want one. I won a little and the games were fun some I played for the first time. The GN is a nice clean place but with limited things to do if I bring the kids I would however visit again with just my wife.

We had never adventured as far as the Golden Nugget so we made it a priority to visit this casino first. The Christmas decorations were mostly bright red and yellow and we were thrilled that the parking was free. The casino was extremely smoky for a Saturday afternoon so we didn’t stay long.

This review is about the casino, we did not stay in the hotel or eat in any of the restaurants. This is my 4th time in Atlantic City and I know better than to play any slots here, so I limited myself to just $10 knowing how tight this place always is. My first trip to A.C.years ago was the day after Golden Nugget took over the old Trump Marina hotel and casino and they had some areas blocked off while they were changing the name. Slots were very very tight back then and also the next two times we came out here. This time when we walked in the casino we thought we had walked into a ghost town, either that or they were closed. Believe me when I say there were just a handful of people scattered in the casino. We would walk rows and rows of slots and not see anyone, then we would come across one lone person playing a slot. My friend played several slots and put quite a bit of money in, even knowing full well that I told him they wouldn't pay out. They didn't at all. Oh, maybe a 15 cent payout on a 75 cent bet after 20 spins, but that was about it, and it was the same no matter what slot machine that we played. Way to blow through $50 in 10 minutes. The lack of people playing here shows people are finally wising up to this place and going elsewhere to gamble. I predict this place will eventually close up if management doesn't smarten up and loosen their slots! You can't stay in business when no one will gamble in your casino, even when you are the only place that offers free parking! Free parking won't help get people to play if their slots won't pay out anything.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite for 4 nights. No comp or anything, paid full price. Upon entry there was a notice that check in could be delayed because of short staffing. I get that, it's a big problem right now, but what they didn't tell us was that housekeeping wouldn't visit the room at all. We were repeatedly hung up on just trying to get fresh towels. We ran out of space in the trash cans, ran out of toiletries and toilet paper. After days of asking for a blanket for my son it never came. I cleaned the room myself every day because that's just what I do, I don't want to stay in a messy room. Well on the last day we took the shopping bags i'd saved and put all the trash in bags next to the can, because it was full. Then I find out I was charged an extra $250 plus my deposit for a "deep cleaning" fee. It took over a week to get an answer why, then we got the manage to send me pictures where the trash bags we left were very obviously sprinkled around the room. Like, trash everywhere. There's no way we'd have ever left the room like that! It's insane that they think they can get away with charging a family for a mess they didn't make after refusing to even clean the room, when housekeeping service is definitely included in the hotel room rate. Was my first time staying here and I will NOT again.

Stayed one night over Labor Day weekend. Paid full price. We got our room key and waited five minutes for an elevator. The elevators were an issue every time. They have 8 elevator banks but only 4 seemed to be operating. So elevators were slow and crowded.

We opened our non-smoking room. It reeked of smoke. We had to drag our bags back downstairs and get another room. No upgrade or comps offered for our trouble.

Walls are paper thin. We could hear guests across the hall yelling in their room. We could clearly hear conversations of guests next to us through the walls.

Casino is dark and outdated, but you know you’re getting that at the Nugget. The problem was trash left behind at the slots. Never saw anyone cleaning up.

Visited the pool area around 4 pm. It was a disaster zone. Towels, beer cans, plastic pitchers strewn everywhere on the ground. One sad-looking guy trying to clean up. We left immediately.

Don’t try walking outside. We went to visit the tiny beach about 100 yards north of the casino. Obviously people use it as a trash dump. Very sad. With all GN’s money, you would think they would pay to clean it up.

Also GN’s 24k club is a joke. We literally played 100s of dollars at tables and slots. Checked our comps at the end, and we have 94 cents in free plays.

Never again.

We came here because the service at Borgata was so bad, hahaha, joke's on us. The cocktail waitress on duty walked up and down shouting "Drinks! Drinks!", while never walking over to anyone and taking an order. I finally got up and flagged her down and after that drink we never saw her again. The whole place was so run down. We were the only ones wearing masks and no one made the other gamblers wear them or move them from their chins to cover their nose and mouth. Never going back and feeling good about that choice.

Been going there for many years. Recently noticed that the dealers are not up to par...taking your money even when you win.. attitudes are not user friendly. It's sad, not what it used to be...I would think that the owner would make sure its help is properly trained. Lots of other casinos to go to , to spend my money..don't think I'll be back..VERY DISAPPOINTED

worst slot experience Ive ever had.... and Ive had a few bad ones.
20% of the slots were shut down and another 20% were out of paper.
None were paying. some were downright dirty and I saw NOONE cleaning anything
Ive played this casino for over 5 years and never saw it liker this. Two recommendations:
Slot players should AVOID the Nugget
The owner should "shut up and listen" to his customers before there are none. The Nugget sure seemed to going "downhill" fast
Last Thursday it was mostly empty. No wonder.
