Atlantic City, NJ Accommodations and Lodging Guide

Visitors Guide Atlantic CityAtlantic City, New Jersey visitor’s can choose from a large variety of lodging accommodations.  For the purpose of this article we break them down as follows, top casinos, hotels on the boardwalk, hotels and motels near Atlantic City and Bed and Breakfasts.

Casino Hotels in Atlantic City

Let’s start with recommending the newest casinos in town.  The number one choice is the Brand New Revel Casino located at the North end of the boardwalk just past the Showboat and Taj Mahal Casino’s.  Revel cas opened in May 2012 and is the most modern amazing casino in the United States including Las Vegas.  Revel is set up to take advantage of the Atlantic Ocean views and the Revel Beach and Boardwalk directly in front of the hotel.  Get on it now and book a room at Revel.  Check our more from the Atlantic City Visitors Guide here website.

The next casino of choice is the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa located on Renaissance Pointe in the Marina District of Atlantic City.  Since 2003, the Borgata has been the leader in town from both a revenue producing and lodging reviews.  The Borgata boasts some of the best nightlife and concerts in town and the service is second only to Revel, get over to the Borgata now and enjoy your time at the Jersey Shore.

The next recommendation is the newly renovated Golden Nugget Casino also in the Marina district.  Once the Trump Marina, The Golden Nugget turned out truly amazing.  You’ll find an amazing 5th outdoor pool and bar experience called H2O, it’s now been voted the #1 place in Atlantic City to watch the Sunset!  All guest rooms and public areas have been totally redone and the entire casino is new.  New spa, restaurants, bars, you name it, it’s all brand new.  Get over to the Marina and check out the Golden Nugget Casino Hotel.

Hotels on the Boardwalk

The choice for hotels without casinos on the Boardwalk is the Blue Green Resort at Atlantic Palace.  It’s located at New York Avenue and the Boardwalk and is a high-rise hotel in which all the rooms are suites. The suite style accommodations are great for visitors as they include kitchenettes, spacious accommodations and excellent ocean views.  Our next choice is the Tropicana Casino, the primary reason for this pick is the Quarter at the Tropicana an amazing Havana Cuba Themed entertainment area with amazing restaurants, nightckubs, Irish Pubs, Russian Vodka Lounge and much more.

Motels Near Atlantic City

There are lots of hotels and motels to choice from near Atlantic City, these accommodations are located on either the White Horse Pike in Absecon or the Black Horse Pike in Egg Harbor Township or West AC.  Our recommendation here is the Ramada Atlantic City West, it’s owned by a good family that takes pride in delivering clean and comfortable accommodations for it’s guests.  The Ramada West AC is located on the Black Horse Pike 1.5 miles from the Beach and Boardwalk.

The next best option is the Fairfield Inn by Marriott on the White Horse Pike. Beautiful outdoor pool, free deluxe breakfast daily and just a short drive from the Borgata, Golden Nugget and Revel Casinos.  The Fairfield Inn has a great fitness room and has plenty of parking for cars and trucks of all sizes.

Atlantic City Bed and Breakfasts B & B’s

There is really only one recommendation for this option, the Carisbrooke B & B located in the adjacent town of Ventnor, NJ and just a short drive from Atlantic City.  The Carisbrooke B & B has incredibly high ratings on Trip Advisor and is really the best option for your Jersey Shore Bed and Breakfast experience.  Guests can walk to the beach about 1/2 block and can drive into AC easily down Atlantic Avenue in minutes.  Have fun and enjoy our guide to Atlantic City Accommodations.
