Jeff K wrote a review 10 Oct
Old Bridge, New Jersey228 contributions169 helpful votes
We just returned from an overnight stay at The Borgata Saturday evening, October 9th. I feel compelled to relate our most recent experience. For those who are frequent visitors, you might have experienced similar things. To those who are considering a stay at the property, please take note. We have been very steady patrons of the hotel/property, so our experience is based on frequent visits and overnight stays over the last 10+ years. Upon arrival at The Water Club valet, we waited for someone to receive our car. They had 1 person working at the valet. We checked into the Water Club for an overnight stay. Upon check-in, we were advised the only room available is on a smoking floor. We said OK, that’s fine. Upon arriving on the 10th floor, the whiff of marijuana was overwhelming. It permeated the hallway. The room reeked of marijuana. Also missing were some of the finer room details that had been part of the stay at the Water Club. However, the most important feature to note is that the room was clean. After putting our things away, we went downstairs in the early afternoon to check out the casino. As a poker player, I headed to the poker room. As I entered the poker room, I walk towards the cashier station to purchase chips. All 5 cashier stations are closed...??? Not a single cashier station was open! On a Saturday! I asked the floor attendant what happened to the cashiers? Not a single person on the floor had a clue. They said it was closed all day; you probably have to purchase chips at the table. This had never been The Borgata policy in the past. Every player in the poker room had to purchase chips at the table, and to redeem them you have to take them to the main cashier in the center of the casino. Now comes the fun part — queuing up on a massive line in the main casino, again with very limited staffing to accommodate the massive number of people. Nothing more pleasing than having to wait almost 45 minutes on line to cash out. MGM management has made the conscious decision to minimize staffing in order to maximize cost efficiency (profits over people) while placing the guest experience last on their list of priorities. Let me be clear: This has nothing to do with COVID, nor staffing shortages. This is a concerted conscious decision by MGM to reduce headcount. To put things in perspective, my wife is a slot player. After 5 hours of continuous play in the main casino, she advised there was not a single instance where a waitress came by. How is this acceptable?! For dinner, we ate at the American Bar & Grille (formerly Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant). We had an exceptional meal there; the food and waitstaff were on point. While speaking with one of the restaurant management, we inquired why Wolfgang Puck and Bobby Flay Steak are no longer on the property. We were informed that MGM management made the decision to terminate the relationship with each of these signature chefs, because MGM management felt they could run their own restaurants without the need to split the revenues with these 3rd party businesses. On Sunday morning, we went to Bread & Butter for breakfast. At 7:30AM, the line was massive. There was 1 person taking orders at the counter (there are usually 2 people) and there are no longer people serving food to dine-in patrons. The 1 person taking the orders now has to deliver food to patrons at the tables. Note to MGM: another great management decision to kill another great place for a quick bite. An emphasis on cost management over people is a great way to eliminate your loyal customer base. At checkout late Sunday morning at The Water Club, there was 1 person at the counter. A single person working to check people out of the hotel. Do you see a pattern emerging? When we went to retrieve our car from the valet, there was 1 person retrieving cars. We loved The Borgata for well over a decade. Time to start looking for another property in Atlantic City to give my business.

I will say parking is much easier on the side and I forgot aside. They do not make it clear it up on the website but this is not in the same building as the actual Borgata. Make sure you take a look at the map so you know how far you're going to be walking to the casino and the restaurants on the Borgata side. Everything seems a little bit farther away than we would've liked. At the front desk was very nice. And from what I heard a much shorter line on the other side. The rooms could use some love. Found some old food in the fridge. Bathrooms are nice. All around clean.

I've been staying at The Borgata because The Water Club was closed during covid. Borgata rooms are no longer good. One visit I had a clogged bathroom. Another visit had a cracked sink. Thank God the Water Club is open. I'll always book at the Water Club if available. Bookings are hard to do with longer wait times by phone. To the Borgata Management. You have hired a horrible young kid to answer your phone for booking reservations. He was horrible, almost cannot speak and then when I asked to clarify what he said, he got ticked off. When I asked if i can talk to another agent, he said yes and hung up and disconnected me. There is no way to get his name. I hope other people complain so he gets fired. His attitude fits a lowest class motel booking.

This was my second stay at the Borgata and I was not impressed. I stayed at the water club this time and the view was not good, waterfront was swamp land. Room had rusted and unclean fixtures. Headboard had handprints and smudges all over and the floor did not look vacuumed. Check in lines were super long.
