Trump Marina Hotel Casino Atlantic City Reviews
A hotel that looks like an aging dragqueen :) Mar 13, 2011
Trump Marina, Atlantic City is located within a cluster of hotels such as Harrah's Borgata. We were getting a good deal with either Harrah's or Trump Marina (USD 45 per day). We chose Marina based on the 'Trump' reputation, but later felt Harrah's would've been a far better choice.
It seems Trump Marina has now been sold off and rebranded under Golden Nugget. Do check the reviews for the facelifted hotel before you make a decision.
The lobby of the hotel is quite tacky with lightbulbs all the way. There weren't many guests in the hotel when we went, the rumors of the shutdown/selloff might have been ripe locally. That however didn't affect any of the hotel staff. They were very good with the customers and helped us with each of our request.
Our room was a regular with two big queensize beds. The view from our window was outstanding! We could see the yachts parked at the docks. The room was a bit narrow in shape, and the big beds took up most of the available space.
Our reservation receipt boasted of a swimming pool and a gym. After a long hard day, we thought it would be a good idea to take a dip/ workout before we retire to bed. It turns out the swimming pool wasn't indoors, and was closed. The gym too was closed for reasons quite unknown to us :/ . What now? Back to the bar!
The hotel might have been the star in Atlantic City in it's early years; it does show signs of it. But we stayed at a time when the hotel was staring bankruptcy in the face, ready to be sold off. I am hoping it regains some glory back as Golden Nugget.
