“Decent Hotel in AC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Stayed at the Borgata for two nights for a girlfriends union weekend. The hotel is very nice, staff is very friendly & helpful. The Chihuly glass chandeliers are something to see. We stayed in a suite which had a fantastic huge bathroom! Roomserviceis good, pretty prompt to addressing requests.Tons of restaurants to choose from, the buffet that the hotel has is excellent for the price of $30. The Tocarre spa at Borgata is good, but not great--the little touches that make a spa great like stellar refreshments, envigorating showers and superclean facilities weren't there, but a good experience nonetheless. Nice outdoor area to soak up some sun even on a cool day. The Casino at the hotel is ginormous, but as none of use were gamblers, we found the slot machines VERY disappointing--payoffs were nonexistant the entire weekend, and we didn't see anybody else winning at them either. If you gamble here, I'd stick with the table games and go beachside for slots at other hotels.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view, and don't be afraid to stay up high in the complex--fast elevators!

I and three my friends stayed overnight at the Borgata on Saturday and I was very impressed with everything at the hotel. The first thing I liked was the fact that you couldn't get passed security in order to get onto the elevators to our room. You had to show them your room key and then they let you pass - great idea! Our room was very clean, bright & the bathroom was exceptionally big. The bed was very comfortable along with the pillows & when we called for more towels and pillows, it was not a problem. The staff was very courteous & accommodating. The buffee was delicious - the food was fresh and very tasty and their desserts were delightful. All in all, I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: Stay on the upper floors - less traffic and a little quieter (we had a great room)

We have been going to The Borgata since they first opened. We love it there! We are red and black player's card members so we get comped rooms from time to time. Whenever we get a day off from work, we would try to book a comped room. We are not big gamblers but we go to enjoy their restaurants and outlet shopping. It's like a mini getaway for us. We go about 8-12 times a year. We are from NYC so the drive is only 2 hours each way.

Recently, the rooms at The Borgata was renovated. There's new linens, new wallpaper, new carpeting, new TV, etc. It is really nice especially since the old rooms were beginning to look dated. The rooms are spacious and clean.

The buffet restaurant has a huge selection and everyone will find something they like. Go early, especially on weekends, to avoid the long lines.

I do think that the weekend prices are a bit ridiculous. Although I do think the service and amenities are up to par, I don't know if I would spring that kind of money. I probably wouldn't be going as often as I do if my rooms are not comped.

The Borgata is also near the Marina, not along the strip where the other casinos are. So you must drive there or take the jitney to get there. This is not a problem for us and we actually prefer this since it is further away, it eliminates the "bus crowd". Driving to the outlet shopping takes about 5 minutes. I usually park at The Borgata, pay the $5 parking fee and ask them for a transfer to another hotel plus a return transfer. I then park my car at Caesars Palace (it is adjacent the outlet shops and they usually charge $10-20 for parking) for free because I have the transfer from the Borgata.

Overall, I love The Borgata but do think their prices are too high for people who does not have comped rooms.

We were 4 friends staying for some golf, nice food and play.
Check in qeue was long and took a while. We had a room on the 5th floor with no view other than concrete wall and roofs. And a little bit of sea view in the distance. Didn't matter much since we were not there to spend time in the room.
had 2 queen beds which was fine.
Bathroom was good size. Shower made the whole bathroom floor wet when opening the doors after shower. Strange
Great beds and fun casino

Thank you Borgata for putting me on a floor with MAJOR construction next to it. No soon than I checked in did the banging and drilling begin. The front desk was useless when I called down and told me that it would stop at 4pm, they were correct but it started again at 8am the next morning. What a wake up call. The front desk manager basically responded to me like it was my fault and after more complaining she gave me a small discount. My wife and I had one night away from our daughter to relax and this was a horrible way to spend it. Why would the Borgata book rooms anywhere near a room that was under construction? Greed?

We have been here before, about 3 times, and went back yesterday, May 2. Check-in had about a 5 to 10 minute wait line, but the woman at the counter was very pleasant. We stayed in room 35 on the 14th floor. The room was immaculate! Very clean, smelled clean! The bathroom was very clean as well. The room is very sound proof as well!
We ate at the Bobby Flay steak house, which was AWESOME!! Very delicious!
We went to a comedy club, which was funny, lasted about an hour long. Then we went to Gypsy bar and watched a band play...very entertaining!
Breakfast buffet was also delicious!
Will come again!

I booked a standard room - two mid week nights for a business trip. I found both the hotel and casino BEAUTIFUL, clean and much easier to get around than other places I have stayed in AC. My room was gorgeous, clean and modern. Kind size bed, two large nightstands, a desk, lounge chair and ottoman, large dresser and television and a convenient mini fridge. I was a little disappointed there was no bathtub, but the all glass shower with a bench was HUGE and the bathroom was fully stocked. The view was nice after dark (17th floor) and the hallways were quiet all night. Lots of food choices - both for sit down waiter service meals and a cafeteria style layout in the basement with Chinese, Japanese, burgers, pizza and ice cream choices.

I signed up for a rewards card when I checked in which came with no special offers which was a little disappointing. So I stayed for two nights, dropped a nice chunk of change eating all my meals on site (room service, an amazing private chef's table dinner at the Homestead, and the cafeteria) and played blackjack for more hours than I'd like to admit. I inquired about the same style/size room for a Saturday night AND THE PRICE WAS $421 MORE. I can understand rooms being more on the weekends, but can't see the justification for THAT much more. I am a NJ resident and I often read that all the casinos are crying over decreased revenue, well with price differences like that - who can afford to come stay overnight, eat and gamble. I would book again if I have a reason to be in the area DURING THE WEEK, but there's no way in hell I'd pay $421 more for a weekend night.
