Ballys versus Tropicana

So I think I've narrowed my choices down to Bally's or Tropicana, it will be my husband and I and we will be staying for 3 days or both in our early 50s, like to gamble and eat out but not into a party scene. Opinions please?

Bally’s might be your better choice as Trop is more of a party place. Ballys is more centrally located and connected to both Caesars and the Claridge.

I think the Trop was renovated recently.

Trop is more updated, more choices for good restaurants, and just overall better! We stayed at Bally’s 2 years ago, and once was enough for me! I just turned 53 ( TODAY) and don’t feel like it’s too young of a crowd. We are heading down Sunday for 3 days! Good luck , wherever you choose, and have a great time!!

Definitely the Trop. We are not into a party scene either but always enjoy our stay there. Great food choices, shopping, casino. Just a pleasant experience all around. .

Happy Birthday to you, hope you have a great time there this weekend, I'm leaning toward Tropicana just looks nicer inside

Actually, I think it's more of a toss up than posted above, so it may very well depend upon what rooms are available for your budget. I go with Jerry on this because Bally's great central Boardwalk location, but you could easily visit both in 3 days as it only a short Boardwalk distance between them—or ride one of the famous rolling chairs, or take the tram.

Bally's in connected indoors and out to Caesars and Claridge, so easy to visit the Playground Pier, or experience the Vue. Bally's location also has some nice views of the nearby new Wheel.
