“Overpriced, but ok for the night.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Check in and check out were prompt and courteous. The room was gorgeous. Bathroom was great except I tried to take a bath and the drain wouldn't stay shut. The air conditioning wasn't working so our room was a little stuffy.

Stayed at the newly rennovated Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino in Atlantic city. The check in was quick and the staff was very friendly. The hotel room itself was worth the stay, there was a large screen TV, a wonderfule view of the Bay and most important the bed was fabulous.The bed was very comfortable and the linens great. Room was very fresh and clean.

A great staff. Willing to do what ever they can to make our stay trouble free. Check in only took a couple minutes.The room was decorated tastefully with a wonderful view. The food was excellent. The place is very clean and has everything you need for an enjoyable visit. Plenty of entertainment. We will go back again.

The only reason I did not give this hotel a rating of "Excellent" is because the walls are paper thin. A phone conversation in the next room actually woke me up.

Other than that, this hotel is amazing. I cannot say enough about how friendly the staff were. Everywhere we went, different staff members were asking if we needed anything of if there was anything they could get for us.
For summer travelers, be advised this hotel is not beach front; be prepared to drive about 3 miles to the beach.
The hotel room itself exceed all expectations. The rooms were very modern and well decorated and lit. The shower/bathroom area is chic but a bit on the small side. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying the Atlantic City Area.

Stayed at the Nuggett on Nov. 21. The check -in was prompt & courteous.

Hotel & rooms were bright and clean. I thought the new rennovations were somewhat garrish (especially the carpeting in the hallways) but new is always better than worn! Bed was comfy-view was fabulous-as were were on the 23rd floor.

My only issue was the door to the bath (which looked lovely-granite countertop, vessel sink, shelving) by saving floorspace- moving the door out ( by about 18") they attempted to make it look like a sliding Soji screen-however- the install was faulty- track not plumb with floor-SO THE DOOR WOULD NOT SLIDE EASILY-needless to say- a bit inconvenient!

Also, another attempt of modernizing-was the shower door- lovely- but not at all functional- the pivot door was curved-when you turn on the shower head (another silly attempt at an upgrade-they installed two Brinkman heads-piggyback style- the thrust of the water felt like a water cannon-pushed me to the wall) water flys outward-allover the floor ( nice marble look w/ glass tile inset) which created it's own hazzard of slipping on a wet marble floor!
Now- about the doors to the rooms- somehow seemed to exagerate any hallway noise- walls to the rooms had very little insulation- you could hear EVERYTHING withing 50 feet:(
Had a very nice dinner in the Grotto- a bit expensive- but for AC expected. We chose the Veal Marsala & Linguini w/ clam sauce. Both were delicious- great bread was served with our meal. Our service was excellent!

The casino was it's usual -smoke permiated the entire casino area:(

Room Tip: Request rooms above 12th floor- ask for a room where the bathroom door has been "adjusted"...

We stayed at the Nugget last Sunday night, Nov. 18. Check in was easy and fast. We asked for a non smoking room which is what we got. The room was very nicely done with a king bed and a leather sofa (better than cloth because it is easier to clean!) The room was super clean as was the bathroom. The room darkening curtains were awesome and we were able to sleep in past 9am! Highly recommend visiting this hotel. We will return.

I also had the privilege of staying at the Golden Nugget while helping with the relief efforts of Hurricane Sandy. The staff at this hotel went above and beyond what I had ever expected. We worked hard all day but came "home" to a clean renovated room with comfortable beds. I can't say enough about the hospitality we all received from everyone who worked there. The hotel is beautiful, the restaurants are great and everyone who worked there was wonderful. I will definitely go back to stay on a happier occasion and will recommend this hotel to all my friends. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
