Resorts Casino Atlantic City – This particular photo has been taken from the beach in front of the Resorts Casino in Atlantic City. The Resorts is the building on the left and the Taj Mahal is on the right of this picture.
This is an ideal location with four hotels located close to each other. They are the Resorts International Casino, the Taj Mahal, the Showboat and the Revel hotel. They are located at the north end of the boardwalk. We have not stayed at the Resorts, however judging by the casino, this hotel has been greatly updated. It actually glistens! The casino and hotel also won the casino of the year award as well. Readers should note that this particular casino was the first casino built along the strip and I can tell that employees are very proud of this. Last time we checked it was still open, while at least 4 have declared bankruptcy.
We also tried the buffet at the Resorts. They were offering all you could eat crab legs. The price was $29.99 per person and the crab legs were pretty good. We would have preferred them to be pre-cut to make it easier to get at the meat. We had to wait at least 45 minutes in line, since it is very popular and they have a relatively small dining room as far as buffets go.
Not sure if they are associated with the resorts, however you can rent bicycles to ride on the boardwalk just outside the hotel from 6:30am until 10:00am. We also ate at the Breadsticks cafe, which is a nice little place on the boardwalk inside the Resorts casino building. We had Corn chowder soup which was excellent and a caesar salad along with a seafood diablo linguini which was also very good. We split everything since the quantities were just so large.
There are two towers and after checking with the front desk they seem to be reasonably priced, however if you have a slot card and play a bit, you can probably receive offers from them for food and room comp’s.
We could not find exact information about the number of slot machines at this casino, however this is a very large casino and we would estimate that there are over 2000 machines for patrons to play on. These include all of the modern current machines that have become popular recently such as many penny style machines. We did find that keno machines are not very popular in Atlantic city in general and in this regard, the Resorts Casino is no different. There were also lots of poker machines of all types to play.
the same thing applies to table games. We did not see any information outlining how may of each type they have. However they do have lots of table games and all of the major varieties as well.
We ate at the buffet and also at Breadsticks coffee shop. The buffet is relatively small so there are more line ups than there would be at other buffets that have a large seating capacity. We stood in line for approximately 45 minutes around the 5 pm time frame which is the prime supper hour time slot.
Breadsticks is located on the main floor beside the boardwalk. You can ask for a table looking out on to the boardwalk. This is a standard cafe, with great food and large portions. We ordered the corn chowder which was really great along with a salad and a seafood pasta dish. All were very good and large.
What We Liked
There are no real complaints about the Resorts hotel & casino. Note that we have not stayed at this location. Comments are welcome from anyone that has.
Slot Player Card
They have their own slot players card system. Slot members can take advantage of benefits at this hotel only as far as we are aware.
If you have not taken advantage of slot player cards, there are a number of benefits that many slot players should consider. Free or discounted rooms, email mailing list of promotions, free or discounted meals, access to entertainment, and a tax report outlining your losses and wins for tax claim purposes.
There is ample parking at the Resorts hotel & casino in a large parking garage beside the hotel. There is no surface parking that we observed. You can access the hotel from the garage via an elevator from all levels.
Directions:Just follow the directions as you come into the city along the Atlantic city expressway. The Atlantic city expressway can be reached from all of the major highways from points north such as New York city and Philly in the east. Bring cash for to pay the numerous tolls on the way.
