Appropriate casino/hotel suggestions needed for "21" b-day

Hi Everyone,

We want to treat our college girl and three of her friends to an overnight for her 21st birthday. I initially booked the Revel, but after a bit more research realized it's very over priced. Any ideas of something on the scale between Revel and the Trop?

The Revel loves the 21 year old crowd, especially if you're going on a Friday or Saturday night. Do you guys play slots or tables?

Everyplace on weekends in AC are high priced. Harrahs resort has parties every weekend for young people in their pool/nightclub that are packed. I have no idea what they charge to get in though.

My daughter is a Black Jack player, the three freinds, i haveno idea, hopefully they will not throw their money in to a slot machine.

It's more about the dinner out, the night club, etc.

Borgata and Harrah's would be my pick.

Prices on the weekend are insane at any AC hotel even the good ol Ascot motel charges 199 on a Saturday.

Thank you. I've had limited experience with my own visits. Right now, I've narrowed it to Harrah's Bally and Caesar's. So why Harrah's?

Actually DianaGN, I was being a little sarcastic. Reality, 21 year olds do not gamble, they come to AC to party. They would rather use the $40 to get into a club than put it into a slot machine. Between the 2 properties, Revel is much better and the rooms will be 100% better than the Tropicana and worth the extra money in my opinion. The nightclub at Revel is also the place to be with the kiddie crowd on the weekends. Dining options are plentiful at both properties.

As others have already said fri.& sat. are very expensive nights to stay in A.C. Perhaps you could find a place in Absecon or Galloway? Rates will be much lower. Also, make certain everyone is 21 on the date in question or no night club or casino.

Just noticed you've added a few more properties.

Ballys: avoid it at all costs. The place has become a dump and has some of the worst rooms in AC.

Caesars is my home base, great property however is attracts a more mature crowd. The do have a decent nightclub there called Dusk.

Harrah's would be a good option f you've pass on Revel. Lot's of 21 year olds on the weekends and the Pool After Dark would be a good choice for the girls.

Revel has HQ nightclub

Borgata has Mixx & Mur.Mur

Harrah's has the Pool after Dark

Caesars has Dusk

Tropicana has Providence

All of these are appropriate clubs for 21 year olds.

I think Harrah's pool after dark is open on wend. Worth a look.
