Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was my first visit to Atlantic City and even though it was cold I enjoyed it. Loved all the vendors. The view and the water was AMAZING!!!

It was our first time on Boardwalk and we used it extensively. One great trip is use the little putt-putt cart (holds 8) to travel. Can see and cover so much more. Remember: they say they close travel at 6 with the carts but they shut down really around 5 ish.

Our children and us were really sad to see all poor people living on the street. A lot of garbage everywhere. The pandemy had certainly a bigger effect there. Casinos were mostly closed. What to say .... it's sad to see this !

Very poor. Same shops over and over. A lot of homeless people sleeping on chairs. It's definitely not a family vacation place. Quite scummy. A lot of shady characters.

Well impression of Atlantic City is …run down. Just visited there for the weekend. If you are on the boardwalk and just the hotels and shops on the boardwalk for the most part it’s fine except the homeless. On the other side of the hotel (opposite side of ocean side) the town is extremely run down and depressing. Honestly just sad. I would tell someone to go somewhere else at this moment in time . But if you are just there to gamble and boardwalk you may be perfectly happy .

Came across many sketchy beggars asking for money and others passed out laying on benches and one in particular laying in the entry way to the Bally's Casino. Also younger people vandalizing plantings at Sugar and driving electric scooters fast, blinding you at night. Not a safe area for families

There is nothing good or exciting here. Everywhere you look is ran down, old and dirty. Food is overpriced. Day one approached by homeless asking for money. 90% of the shops/restaurants on the boardwalk were closed. Stayed at the tropicana it was old and trashy also. Random construction material trash as part of the view they offer. The hotel pool was so horrible... I just can't! Please save yourself some money and just stay home.

Went on a Friday night thinking shops would be open, people would be out. Not so much. Many places were closed before 8pm, the beach bar was closed, trinket shops (ya know the cheap tshirt places lol) kicked us out and closed up at 8pm. Restaurants were open but not super busy.
Pretty uneventful and honestly nothing much to see.
