What do you think of this gift for my parents

I was considering sending them to AC NJ for a few days in March. It would be a xmas/bday gift  since my dad will be there on his bday. It is also much more then we usually spend. I actually owe him a gift from this year since the gift I gave him  fell through.

It would be 2 nights and includes $50 casino credit for each, each day. The package is fairly cheap but I dont know too much about the hotel/casino. It is called Resorts. It is right on the boardwalk. Anyone been? Any thoughts on this as a combo gift?

  • Hell, why don't you send me too ? ! Wink

    Seriously tho, it is an awesome gift idea! As for hotel recs, I'd check out the travel board. I've never been to AC but I want to one of these days.

  • I think that is a cool idea.  I've been to Resorts and enjoy it.  It isn't the top of the line but it isn't a sh!t whole either.  Its actually where my parents prefer to gamble b/c it isn't overly uptight and the people are there to have fun not to win tons of money.

    That sounds like my parents kind of place. They are very down to earth people. DH and I went t Ceasars a few years back and really did not fit in!

  • Resorts is decent, that's where DH and I usually stay because we always get comped rooms on the weekends. It is definitely more a place for older people, we really stick out when we gamble there. Make sure you can get them a room in the Rendezvous tower, not the Ocean tower. It was the first casino in AC, and it shows a bit but it's still a good place to stay.

    There is a nice steak place Gallagher's there and it is right next to the Taj Mahal which has good restaurants and shops. It is not close to Caesars or Bally's, they would have to take a $10-15 cab ride of they wanted to go to the shops/outlets or restaurants there, otherwise it's a pretty long walk.

    DH and I go about 4 times a year so if you need any other input let me know. I think it's a nice gift for your parents.
