If you’re seeking a classic Atlantic City weekend — complete with gambling and not much shut-eye — this high-rise beachfront hotel has your number. Overlooking the beach and boardwalk, the property is a microcosm of everything this mini–Sin City is all about: nonstop entertainment, pampering and high rolling, with plenty of pit stops to refuel on burgers and old-school cocktails. Highlights include a spa that offers a host of treatments, from hot stone massage to microdermabrasion (admission to the health club is included with any treatment); the LandShark Bar & Grill, a fun beachside hangout; and a stylish indoor-outdoor swimming pool. While the resort may not pull the big name acts that other hotels on the strip get, there’s still a respectable lineup of performers on the roster at any given time, like Jenny McCarthy and the Spinners.

Cheat on Resorts for one night with the Borgata, home to one of the town’s best restaurants,Bobby Flay Steak, where the dramatic decor, fancily dressed patrons and top-notch seafood, steak and produce conspire to make a great date night.
How to Get There
We stayed in the ocean tower. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The view was of rooftop hvac units but not all rooms can have ocean views. The outdoor deck was a nice place to relax but some umbrellas for shade would be appreciated. My complaint is with housekeeping. My husband and i were getting ready for the evening when there was a knock at the door. My husband answered it and a staff member was there. We said we were fine & didn't need anything. She had something in her hand & my husband said he would take it but she proceeded to walk past him right into the room to place an information card on the dresser. There is no sense of privacy at all. Keep your door bolted if inside.
Depending on your taste or age you might prefer another casino. But as far as the best run casino on the Boardwalk there in none better than the Resorts Casino and Hotel.
This property is run by quality casino people who know the business and not by accountants who just look at the bottom line. While it is not the largest , it is laid out very nicely with a great assortment of machines , table games, restaurants, bars, rest rooms and a nice food court. Lots of change machines and a cashier booth. The smoking areas are always
clean and you don't even smell any smoke.
The valet parking is excellent ($10.00) and the check in girls are great. The Bell Captains will have your luggage in your room as soon as you get it.
They have the BEST cocktail service system on the Boardwalk !!! They have a brand new sports betting room with food and beverages that is located right off the Boardwalk.Lots of TV's and very comfortable recliners. They have great room service and they always greet you with a smile or ask if you need anything , extra towels, shampoo , etc.
Breadsticks restaurant overlooks the Boardwalk from above with indoor or outdoor seating and a great view of the ocean . A great indoor / outdoor pool . They have very good offers and lots of specials for players of all levels of gambling. They have good entertainment and a theater upstairs.They have a great beach bar and restaurant that is right on the water. If you haven't been there , get yourself a players card and check them out. You should get offers in the mail very soon after.
This is not my favorite hotel in AC by a longshot but you cant beat what you get for the price. Rooms are nice enough and the beds weren't uncomfortable like some hotel beds. I believe we were in the ocean tower which wasnt totally redone but it was nice enough. Front desk staff wasnt all that pleasant. Resorts has lots of good food and drinks. Wet Willie's is delish and so was margaritaville. Overall it was a pleasant stay.
My wife booked our visit for my 50th birthday. She called ahead and discussed with the hotel. There were issues with trying to book time at the spa. When we checked in to their non smoking “renovated room”, it smelled like smoke and mildew. The view was of the roof and wall with a loud exhaust vent close by. When we called the front desk we were told the carpet was new and that was the renovation. We asked to be moved to a different room and were placed on hold. Eventually we hung up and went back down to the front desk and checked out. We made reservations at a different casino and had the experience we were hoping for. I felt bad for my wife that she went through all this to surprise me for my birthday.
My hub and I stayed one Sunday night here at Resorts. We knew it was an older hotel so wasn't sure what to expect. Since it was a Sunday, check in wasn't until 5. That seems pretty late as we had been walking the boardwalk all day and most hotels have 3:00 check in. The check in desk was terrible - only 2 employees working and a long line of impatient people. They should really invest in more employees at the check in desk as that was our first exposure to their service and we weren't happy - others in line were grumbling as well. Not a good first impression! We got lucky and had an amazing suite #5318 (we booked a basic room) with a view of the ocean. Just lovely!! We were very surprised with our accommodations being so nice so it soothed our wounds from waiting in line for 20+ minutes to check in... Room service was suppose to be available until 11:00 pm but when I called at 10:30, no one answered. The hotel itself is kept very clean and neat and although we don't gamble, the gaming floor seemed tidy and appealing whenever we were cutting through the hotel. Not run down as I had expected it might be and the filtration system seem to do a nice job keeping the cigarette smoke to a minimum. We had a couple drinks at the "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" bar and while the bartender was very nice and attentive, they only had 2 Michelob Ultra beers stocked. Little things like the ones mentioned kept this from being a 5 star review but we would come back.
