When Caesars opened its Atlantic City casino in 1979, it took over the old Howard Johnson's Boardwalk Regency Motor Inn as its hotel , and bulit a new casino adjacent to the inn.
Unfortunately, that Howard Johnson portion of the hotel still exists, and over the years, other Caesars hotel towers have risen around it.
The reason for such a disparity of opinions on Casars is that your personal experience varies wildly depending on which hotel tower you are in.
The original Howard Johnson's motor inn isn't even visible from the street because the rest of the Caesars facility has grown around it.
Thus, you will read complaints of hotel rooms with no windows or natural light. It's a rather strange thing, for sure, but theold motor inn has been completely swallowed by the rest of Caesars, and yet they still rent out its rooms.
On the other hand, the newer "Centurion Tower" at Caesars is a modern 4-star hotel with fine rooms and amenities.
Harrah's recently purchased Caesars and is promising vast (and much-needed) upgrades. The old motel portion has been rumored to be slated for demolition.
In the meantime, it truly is a gamble as to what kind of room you will get. Rest assured, the bizarre former Howard Johnson's rooms are not shown on the website, but you could unwittingly end up in one.
Until upgrades are made, it might be a better bet to stay in a more modern facility.
