“Good Choice for Hotel in AC”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Stayed or 2 days with my family last week. Overall, this is one of my favorite hotels in AC....I have stayed in at least 10 hotels, here. The restaurant selection is very good, the casino is smaller than many of the other hotels, but I found it to be just right. The hotel room that my husband and I had....the corner junior suite.....was great! It had fabulous views and enough room to entertain a few people for a predinner drink! My only criticism was on Friday night. A group of men had paid for a private dancer at the bar (Bar 46?). It wasn't so private though as she was dancing on the table in the middle of the bar and to top it off....took a break and galloped around the casino. Now, I don't have a problem if the this is available to people but it should be done in a more discreet way. Not everyone wants to see this.....our group was slightly uncomfortable with this. But, it wasn't the end of the world.....just really tacky and low class.

The property here is brand new updated from a previous ownership. Parking entrance is a breeze and very inviting. Location is not on the boardwalk but rather Marina front surrounded by some towering hotels nearby.
It has an open, manageable feel to it. Nice set up of a few shopping stores and an outstanding gelato/crepe/espresso area. This in addition to a strangely placed Starbucks. There is a mini game room for children.
What helps make this a spectacular place is the phenomenal restaurants; the Chart House offers beautiful views and some great seafood.;Vic & Anthonies offers some of the best steak anywhere and is our personal favorite(worth giving up the views).
The pool area is just great. There are 4 large sized hot tubs (although not hot enough) where in the middle sits a fire pit. The pool is large sized (although not warm enough) surrounded by over sized cushioned lounge chairs. The bar/restaurant by pool is surrounded by fire pits.
Gaming area is open and nice. Open live music would be a great added touch.
The boardwalk is real close by. We took the car out and parked down the street at Resorts. Show your parking stub from any casino and park free. The location a bit away from boardwalk should not be a deterrent to staying here. The beautiful clean rooms, the views, the food, the casino,the pool area all make this a great place.

Stayed here for three nights and had an enjoyable time. My first time to stay in a casino hotel complex so was taken aback by the scale of the place and the facilities available. The room was very nice with a super bathroom and great space, it was very clean and had a very nice bed. We used the buffet in the restaurant and it was excellent value with a wonderful range of food that was freshly prepared and replenished when needed. The bars were good with decent entertainment and the price of beer was reasonable. I played some of the fruit machines but I am not a gambler so I don't know about the quality of the casino. The hotel is a jitney ride away from the centre of the action, this is not a problem as they are frequent and cost $2.25 jitneyac.com

Room Tip: Go as high as possible with a view over the marina, very nice

By far the Golden Nugget is the best Hotel I have stayed in at Atlantic City! I will stay there every time I am in Atlantic City. I had a delicious salad for dinner that I would definitely recommend. Reginald Colley

I would have given our July 4th Birthday Getaway 5 stars but unfortunately there were several complaints. The walls were so thin I could hear our neighbors snoring, also rowdy 20 somethings @ 2 a.m. I called security and they were quieter. The dual shower head was fine but the glass doors were not preventing water from hitting the floor. Yes I would go back bc the atmosphere was satisfying: casino, decor of the hotel,restaurant, pool area and our hotel view.

Beautiful hotel. The rooms are updated and very clean. Loved spending time at the sleek pool and hotel spa. I found the service to be wonderful. The only downside is that the hotel is not on the boardwalk but there is a jitney right outside the hotel that runs 24/7. It costs $2.25 and will take you to all the casinos and near the boardwalk. (About 15-20 minutes). Cabs are also available. The hotel is still located on a the marino so you have a water view.

We had a wonderful mid-week stay at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. The Golden Nugget, totally updated and refurbished the Trump Marina Hotel. The rooms are graciously appointed, the bathrooms have dual shower heads and basin sinks. The pool area is simply gorgeous.

There are a variety of restaurants from an upscale steak house, Asian fusion, buffets... We had a wonderful seafood dinner, overlooking the Atlantic City Marina, at the Chart House Restaurant.

If you go in the summer, its a MUST to go to the beaches in Brigantine which is just over the bridge from the golden Nugget. The wide, white sand beaches are uncrowded , although there is a small fee for a beach tag.
