Join a seasonal deck scene overlooking the water

The bayside location of Golden Nugget Hotel, Casino & Marina, Atlantic City towering above the Farley State Marina means guests can approach by land or by sea. And they do both. In addition to a large casino, eleven restaurants, a full-service spa and  Salon and two showrooms for top acts. The waterside setting of Golden Nugget offers a refreshing change from the Boardwalk.

Highlights
  • Popular with boaters, seasonal bay-front bar and restaurant The Deck jumps with live entertainment and drink specials
  • Live Bar will keep guests dancing all night
  • Award-winning restaurants Chart House and Vic & Anthony's
  • Brand new rooftop H2O pool with firepits/Jacuzzis and cabanas
Rooms

Glance out the window of any room here for views of Atlantic City, the bay or the marina. Gold Tower rooms welcome with pillow-top mattresses, refrigerators, on-demand movies and Internet access (fees apply). Five levels of suites add more square footage. 

Features

At Golden Nugget Hotel Casinoblackjack fans might like Spanish 21, a fun variation that puts more options in the hands of the player. The full service Spa & Salon Fitness Center includes cardio equipment by True Fitness Technology entertains guests with built-in LCD television panels and MP3 plug-ins.

Entertainment

Two live performance venues offer the best of both worlds. The Grand ballroom draws big names and quite a crowd, while just 500 fans get up close and personal with top talent at The Showroom, the most intimate music venue in town.

Would do it again

This hotel has been completely remodeled and the rooms are very modern. We enjoyed the double headed shower and good bathroom products! Vic and Anthony's is a fabulous restaurant right on site.

Relaxation vs. Excitement

Golden Nugget was great for a relaxation getaway. With that being said, it did not quite fit the 'exciting' criteria that I was expecting for Atlantic City. The room was spacious and comfortable, with a great view. If you want to get away and just enjoy not working, Golden Nugget is great. If you are looking for a more exciting time, stay on the boardwalk. We stayed in the standard room with a king size bed. The room was the best part about this hotel. The view was great as well as the spacious couch area next to the window. Room service came everyday on point, which was very satisfactory. Overall, the Golden Nugget is for an older crowd. If you are younger and want to see the club/bar scene, I would advise to stay at a hotel on the boardwalk. If you are looking for a nice, affordable time to gamble and get away, Golden Nugget is the perfect place.

Couple's Weekend Getaway

Only had a chance to stay at the hotel for 1 night, but it was a great night. We had to take a cab to the Borgata hotel for a comedy show. Then we came back and hung out at the H2O Bar which was great. The casino and Haven was fun as well.

Great weekend

The room was clean and the view from our room was awesome. The staff were nice and friendly. The pool area was awesome! Even if you're not going to swim you can stay there and hang out. We had a great father's day weekend.

Pretty good

The hotel is ex actually how the pictures look. Rooms have recently been remodeled and are clean and comfy. It sucks you have to pay for everything, like parking, and wifi. However, that is how most of the casinos in AC are. At least you can earn comps to pay for the parking. The roads near the golden nugget are a but crazy making it hard to just get in your car and check out the boardwalk or other casinos.

Overall Great, but...

Overall the Golden Nugget was a great hotel and casino. We had a beautiful room with a great view. Requests for items such as extra towels were met quickly. The only problem came on the last night. Our room had a leak from the rain. One of my room mates had some of her clothing soaked before we discovered it. A call to the front desk did get an offer to change rooms, but since it was after 11 pm and we were checking out in the morning, we declined. We were already in bed and packing and moving would have taken too long. We had to rise early for morning meetings. The only other recourse they offered was to use some towels. No one came to check it out. We had to listen to the plop plop of water all night.

Weekend Trip

The trip itself was nice. The hotel was horrendour. The walls were paper thin - you could hear EVERYTHING. There safe did not work. The bathroom looked like it had not been dusted in months. The towels in our room had yellow stains all over them.

Will NEVER stay here again!!!

Room was clean, hallways were so so. Stuffy smell and not a lot to do. WORST..we were locked out of our room 3 times! Not fun at 3am and you're exhausted. Stuck outside of our room for an hour because that's how long it took them to get to our room and get it fixed. They blamed the lock and said sorry! No thank you!

Night Out

Celebrated friend's birthday at the Borgata so location worked out for us. The bathrooms in the rooms were too small and the shower was odd. Getting a cab was easy. Room service was delivered quickly and was really good. Valet was quick the next morning.
