so, since we will be going in late july when it's way too hot to keep walking to the center/cesar's pier/outlets evryday, and our friends are staying at atlantic club, i figure resorts is too far. so to narrow it down, i'm torn between bally's and trump plaza. cesars is double the price, so that won't work. all the reviews of bally say not to stay in claridge tower, but then a lot of them say that bally's puts you in claridge whether you like it or not. and there are bad cust service reviews of trump plaza, plus their website says the pool is closed, for how long i don't know. any info on these two hotels would be appreciated. do either charge a fee to use the pool? how is the beach front (crowded, clean)? are the rooms/bathrooms decent? is getting an ocean view room difficult? thanks for the input!!!
