We enjoyed our stay. We were in the coastal tower which was newly renovated and had a view of the water and the boardwalk in the distance. The room was spacious and the bed was comfy. The only issues we had with the room was the odd design of the shower allows water all over the floor, and the sounds from the hallways and neighboring rooms was way too loud. I've stayed in a lot of hotels and never had it this loud. Not sure why it was like that. This hotel is about a 10 minute drive to the boardwalk. Parking is $10 less a $5 credit. You can come and go with that price as long as you keep your receipt. There isn't much to do outside of the hotel/casino unless you drive to the boardwalk. We did drive to Brigantine which is just over the bridge and enjoyed the views there. If you need gas, groceries or a cheap meal, I would go there. Other areas near the boardwalk were a little sketchy in the evening. I was disappointed that the Internet service was poor at the hotel because we are from canada and can't text without paying extra. It is supposed to be included in the resort fee but we could barely connect in the 5 days we were there. The pool was wonderful, the buffet was good, the casino itself was good and all staff we spoke with were nice and accommodating.
