For my 21st Birthday, I went to the Borgata casino. And let me tell you, Oh my goodness, are those beds amazing! I only slept a few hours because I was up all night enjoying being 21 ! But it was the best night's sleep ive had in a while. They actually give you the option to buy the bed. (not that perticular one, but a new one) and if i had my own house, i would buy it in a heart beat! Anyway, It was really fun! And a great Place to stay!
I went there with my boyfriend a few friends. Check in was at 4:00 pm, there was no line. We had a comp, from using the black card, so we got a very nice room. The drapes in the room are "black out" drapes. so in the middle of the afternoon, if they are shut, it is pitch black. Perfect for anyone who wants those few extra hours of sleep in the morning. The shower was amazing. It was glass doors, with heavy silver handels, with nice marble floors, walls, and even a cozy seat for two! there is a marble shelf in there as well, with towels folded neatly on top. The toiletrees were adorable, they smells like mint, they had soap, shampoo, cream rinse, lotion, etc. all the basic free stuff.
Our view wasnt all that great, it looked like we were looking at the top of a roof.. and then the white horse pike, but i imagine if you were on the side you could probably see the ocean (from a distance) as it is not on the boardwalk, but about a mile or so away. Still you could probably get a nice view (but im not promising anything)!
THe buffet was a decent price, and I always enjoy it. There is a lot of food to choose from, and its very gourmet if ya know what I mean - they've got steak, chicken, pork, chinese, french, and how could we forget american? thats right, they have onion rings too folks ! If you pay in advance you dont have to wait in a long line, and trust me , that line can get long. Since I had a comp, I got to wait in the short line.
Unique Quality: The nightclub was fun, we went to the MIXX . Expensive drinks , great music , great fun ! one drink was about 7 bucks, and it was small, very small. They usually have celebrity DJ's, so its gets pretty packed. THe party usually goes until the party stops, so if theres a ton of people, the party will keep on going until people start falling over! Literally! Smoking is not aloud in clubs anymore, that law was actually passed on my birthday last year (april 15th) so I actually saw people being handed tickets for smoking, no joke, they were handed tickets! under cover policement maybe? either way, dont do it, its a nasty fine! (wish you were staying at a casino on the boardwalk huh?)
The slots are fun, although I do miss the sound of the "ching ching" when the money comes out, but they still have sounds, they're just electronic! Like mostly all casino's now, that decided to go digital. Some are really fun, they are almost like computer games, and very easy to lose money. JUst be smart , and you will walk away with your pride intact! Lucky me I broke even with 20 bucks and won 3 ! hahaha . FOr my first try , i think i did pretty well !

Directions: if your going there from the white horse pike (rt 30)then you want to stay in the left lane because to get to the borgata, you have to go over a bridge going towards brigantine,after that just follow the signs to the parking garage and you should be fine!
