“Beware the "bait and switch..."”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

We had reservations for a "comped" Bally's tower luxury room. When we tried to check in they said there was a $55 a night upcharge for that room. When I refused to pay, we were given a supposedly renovated "Ruby" room. What a joke! These rooms are at least 50 years old. The only thing new was the carpet. The furniture was made from pressboard with a plastic veneer. The thermostat would revert to 72 degrees no matter what you set it at.
Avoid Bally's, they have forgotten what business they are in. They are there to take your money. Nothing else!

Room Tip: Avoid all the rooms in the Claridge.

I had never been to AC. My husband & friends brought me for my bday. I had read bad reviews prior to coming and sent a message to the tripadvisor @ bally's. We had booked into the Dennis but at checkin we were upgraded to the Tower. Excellent room. Very larges. Bathroom had soaking tub & stabd alone shower. It was very clean Not sure if my message gave me the upgrade or it was happenstance. But I can't complain.
Only two cons: noise in the hall is very prominent in your room while sleeping. And servers of drinks at night are very slow. But neither are deal breakers. I'd stay again but only in the Tower. Oceanview was nice.

We stayed in the Dennis tower. Rooms have been beautifully refurbished and the stay was wonderfully peaceful! Tons of action on the gaming floor! People were actually winning small jackpots here and there making it tons of fun!

Traveled to Bally's Casino and Resort in Atlantic City on 11 -13 Feb 2012. Upon arrival to our non-smoking room it reeked of smok. The room had only been partially cleaned i.e shower stall dirty, stains in toilet and bathroom floor, old bread found on floor behind door, housekeeping requested. Three girls responded with an attitude and haphazardly finished cleaning. They stood outside the hallway talking about 15 minutes then left, but still lying on the hallway floor were two dirty glasses and an old half eaten hot dog. Nasty, with so many resort options Bally's has seen the last of me. Book at your own risk.

got a great deal on two rooms for the night at the dennis tower in Bally's....i can't speak to the quality of the other rooms but our room was spacious and clean. we also played at the casino and had a lot of fun. i would stay here again for the rate that i got and for an overnight stay..i'm not sure if i would stay for an extended time.

Room Tip: worth the upgrade to the dennis tower
