We lost power in Cape May last weekend, so we went to Ballys (where we have stayed before) - got a great rate since we had comps. The room was nice although in need of a good dusting. The hallway had dirty dishes outside several rooms, and they sat there for two days. Even though the hotel was fairly busy, the restaurants and bars were mostly closed. We had to eat at 6ix's which was edible, but certainly not great food. Forget trying to find a place to have a drink and watch SUPERBOWL. Unbelievable - as crowded as it was - no bars open and hardly anything available to eat.
Although the room was ok for the price we had at least seven people in the room next to us - kids yelling, slamming doors, etc. I called the Front Desk and they said they would send Security over right away. Four hours later, no one had come over yet, so my husband had to go talk to the guests. Apparently, the parents were at the casino, and left a bunch of kids under 10 in the room by themselves. Not Ballys fault, but they could have sent someone over to check the room after I called.
Since we were here for a few days, I decided to treat myself to a day at the spa. They had a decent deal - three treatments plus lunch and use of the facilities for under $200. Being a female, it was the first time I had a male for a massage, which was no big deal to me, although my back is still hurting three days later - he was a bit rough. My third treatment was a body scrub and was supposed to be with a woman. Much to my surprise, the guy that did my massage (Joe) came into the room.. Joe told me that Ben (the spa manager?) said that he spoke to me and that I ok'd having a male. I should have told Joe I was uncomfortable and come back the next day for my third treatment, but he was a nice guy, and I just went with it. He said he didn't often do the scrubs, and I believed it - he was so rough my skin felt like he was scraping me with Brillo. I spoke to Ben about the mixup and told him he DID NOT speak to me. He denied saying anything to Joe about speaking to me and had a smirk on his face and really did not care at all. He could have at least offered me another service. Last thing about the spa - the "wrap" is not a wrap like I've had at other spas. Just a few warm towels thrown on me.
We decided we're going to try the Tropicana or The Trump next time. At least we won't go hungry. It was way too cold out to go looking for a place outside the hotel for dinner and we were too tired to walk too far.
