Arrrrgghhhh..... :-/
2/5 max buy in is changing to 1k in a few days.

It's a cool old place with a manually operated elevator. The rooms are very basic which is why the prices are so low. The least expensive rooms will use a shared bathroom down the hall while the pricier(?) rooms have a private bathroom. There is no air conditioning and no heat (which is why they close right after Labor Day).

It's not a great place to bring the wife or girlfriend (unless you're bringing them together), but if you're alone or with some friends it's a better option than many of the flea bag motels in the area.

Thanks for all the great info. Sounds a lot better than some of the places I've stayed at in my travels. I'm fine with the bare necessities so I don't mind at all if there's a little dust in the corners or if I have to share a bath, as long as there're no bedbugs or fleas. Disappointed to hear that they close after Labor Day, as I'd be more likely to want to spend a couple days in the winter, when my work slows down. Seems like the no air cond. might be a problem in the middle of summer. Well, I just wish I'd come back to 2+2 last week so I could have known about this place when I was down there. Oh well, there's always next year.

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

Real quick, I have a question or two to put out there, Is there any house that uses slot dollars as a marketing lure to put in time on live games as a reward and does any house use sponsorship in exchange for advertising in the poker room??? I have some experience with these concepts and would enjoy some feedback on these thoughts.

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

Thanks P.T. but I'm looking for the permission's and restrictions from N.J. I had the Del Park experience for a few years and when we set up the regs before openings we did all we could leaning toward L.V. regs to avoid the roadblocks to commerce.

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

Looks like the Ten Casino was sold a couple weeks ago and Glenn Straub is out. Plans are to reopen it some time next year. Also Hardrock Casino plans to open next year in the old Taj.

Also MGM and Ceasars announce plans for a new development project (casino?) in the near future.

Didn't Ceasars just shut down one of it's casinos a couple years ago to consolidate their customers into their remaining three properties?

Right. I said they plan to reopen it. I should have said "open".

Anyone tried Oshi Sushi @ Harrah's? What're the best items on the menu to order?

I assume I just don't know enough because significant money is going into these properties...but is there going to be any market for 2-3 new casinos in AC? It just seems so ill-conceived, and this is coming from someone who actually likes AC and sees it as a location that has unique appeal.
