I went to the openings and hung around for a few days. Ocean was nice. I had never gone to the Revel. I did find the circular floor layout a little confusing. I could never quite figure out where I was. I hope it does well. The new owner seems like a good guy.

Hard Rock was also nice. You could hardly tell it was the same place as the Taj. They spent a lot of money on it.

You could tell both places didnít just reopen from when they closed. They were very clean, even the parking garages(hint hint, Ballyís) and had great lighting. I despise paying for parking, so the free parking was great. The lines were very long to get a players card, so I skipped that. There did seem to be a lot more people getting cards and walking around and not as many playing. Plenty of $10-15 blackjack tables open.

One thing I donít like about AC in general is it seems really difficult to get anything to eat there. I mean literally. I go there to gamble. I couldnít care less about fancy restaurants. Both places seemed to have a lot of sit down places. I literally just want a place that I can go order a beef fried rice without getting ripped off and eat it. The struggle is real.



Ocean is definitely lacking a few quick serve restaurants at the moment. That shouldn't be the case by August. They are completing the construction for a few of their F&B outlets. Hard Rock has a bunch of quick options on the 2nd floor by the Wild Card Services desk - including a White House Sub Shop (yum!)

Happy to hear you enjoyed both properties while checking them out!

We have been to both Hard Rock and Ocean Casino and are interested in what others think about them. Their websites are a little light on information about their loyalty programs. It would be nice if there was a way to see if you are entitled to a comped room or other freebees and such.
One thing that bears repeating is if you are taking part in their loyalty card match deal you should get Hard Rocks card first and then Ocean Resorts. If you match a Caesars Entertainment card at Ocean first you only get a Platinum card and it does not have free valet parking. Use your Rock Royalty card and get a Black card.

The issues are:

Philadelphia is only 50 miles away. There's a train, shuttles, and rental cars to AC. PHL has major air carrier service. It's not cost effective for airlines to serve both.

DC is 4 hours drive. NYC about the same. Lots of buses from both, lots of people want a car in AC. Local transportation in AC sucked last time I was there, and I'm not aware it's improved. So people drive.



Many years ago I went from Las Vegas to Atlantic City every week for 51 straight weeks. I always found it easier to fly to Philadelphia and drive in.

The top public tier at Hard Rock is Rock Royalty. There is a level above it that is by invitation only.

Tier Match ends September 3.

CET Diamond and Seven Stars, M life Gold, Platinum and Nior, Golden Nugget Chairman and Elite, Tropicana Platinum and Black and Resorts Paramount and Red Carpet are the AC competitor tiers that will be matched to Hard Rock Wild Card Rock Royalty.

Is there something I can clarify for you? It's pretty simple, bring any of the cards I mentioned in my most recent post to Hard Rock and they will give you Rock Royalty (along with 2 buffets, 2 comedy club tix, 2 comp nights in the hotel and $150 in free slot play.)

ahh.. I meant the opposite.

if you have rock royalty, what would the other casinos give you for THEIR rewards card?

Ocean will give you their Black card along with a two night stay and $100 free play, and Golden Nugget will give you their Elite trade-up card (doesn't have the same benefits of the true Elite card.)
