“comped room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

older tower but OK. room clean with no upgrades (older tv, older sofa, carpet) no damage from SANDY that I saw. If I could have it should read 3.5 on a 5 scale.stayed sun into monday. Went over to the Borgada later Monday and I thought somebody turned on the lights. Bright, clean, and alot of people.
Really depends on what you like. Harrahs was fine but low key and nothing special.

Room Tip: ask for the remodeled rooms!!!

Just spent the weekend here. After reading some previous posts, I was on the lookout for deterioration from previous visits. My room was in the Marina Tower and was big, comfortable, and clean for the most part. (There were some areas that needed a good dusting.) I did not notice much damage from the recent Hurricane Sandy.

The employees were very friendly and helpful and seemed to be happy to be back to work. I have never experienced such prompt and frequent drink service.

The burger at Bill's Burger was the best. I enjoyed it so much I went back the next day. (I also tried one at Johnny Rocket's at the Showboat which was a big dissapointment.) Travel companions told me the buffet was also very good.

The wait for the shuttle to the boardwalk was over a half hour but I was told the full complement of busses was not running that day. Jitney service was every 5-10 minutes at the time.

The gaming was fun with lots of new machines and I even found a 9/6 JOB slot. While I didn't come away a winner I had a great time. I will definetly stay here again.

Do not book a room at this hotel. It may look very modern and nice but my husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and got terrible bed bugs bites. I had about 30 bites alone. No one seems to want to take responsibility for them and the manager and customer service are very rude!!! I filed a claim and 3 weeks later it was denied. I certainly did not imagine these bed bug bites and neither did my husband. It is no coincidence that we checked in just fine and left with more than a dozen obvious bed bug bites. It completely ruined our weekend. I will never stay here again and as a warning if you ever have an issue with this hotel they will be rude to you and do everything in their power to ignore you.

Anyone paying for a room here should keep in mind that alot of the rooms are comped for the players. If your paying be very careful what tower your in. You have a alot of teenagers on the weekends because they share a room as they have a very big party at "The Pool". When my play rate went down so did my room quality. I don;t like the older towers at all. Some of the smoke free rooms smell like smoke or air freshener, The 2 waterfront towers are the best, Modern rooms, great marble bathrooms, plus. If you are not playing and have to pay full price for this on a weekend it;s like over 400 a night. Not worth it. The high rollers come in for the weekend. They get the best rooms. I do have to say their buffet is worth the price with or without a comp, It's the best in AC.

Room Tip: Ask for the waterfront towers. Bay view or city if you prefer.

I didn't expect much from Harrah's Resort Atlantic City. Last time I went (many years ago) it was a rather drab and blah experience. But this time I can't say enough good things about it! My room in the Waterfront Tower was beautifully appointed, comfortable and featured a huge flatscreen TV. The clock radio had an iPod dock. The bath featured a walk-in show and separate WC facilities. The casino floor is really large but never feels crowded. The dome-enclosed pool is gorgeous - even just to pull up a deck chair and read. The staff couldn't have been nicer. My only slight qualm was that the food at the Burger Joint was really mediocre and there wasn't much of it for the price. Still - what a lovely way to experience a post-Sandy Atlantic City. I'm convinced - from now on The Marina will be my place to stay and play.

Room Tip: Go for the Waterfront or Bayview Towers!

Our stay at Harrah's Resort in Atlantic City was probably the worst experience we have ever had at a casino-style resort (and we've stayed at a lot of them). Our check-in experience was awful: long lines, rude associates, inconvenient check-in location, and self-park was almost in another state! Our rooms were spartan and had several things that didn't work (3 light bulbs out, a non-functioning telephone, horrible climate control. There was not even a tiny little pad of paper or pen to be found in the room. Don't even get me started on the "amenities". The meals we had here were, without doubt, the worst we've ever had in a casino and the most expensive. We couldn't get out of here fast enough, but of course, Harrah's got the last shot as we pulled out of the self-parking garage and found that we had to pay to exit! We don't expect to win at any casino (and we didn't), so this review has nothing to do with that aspect of our visit. Just stay as far away from here as possible. If you want to blow some money at Atlantic City, you're better off just dumping it in the ocean. That would be a better experience than staying at Harrah's.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms.

The elevators were dirty and needed a good cleaning. The areas around the elevators needed cleaning as well. I realize that many people are flowing through these areas but attention to detail on getting the common areas (elevators) cleaned would be an improvement. I come here often because I have a very good host that treats me well. I like the idea of not having to wait in every line if you are a diamond or 7 stars player.
I think Harrahs could use someone that walks the common areas and could get cleaning done when it is seen. I play in the Diamond Cove all the time and that part of the casino is kept very clean. Old drinks are removed and ash trays are cleaned often.
Thanks for the effort Harrahs.
