The fuel dock offers 24hr self service for both gas and diesel and has high speed pumps for gas and diesel and has a pump out station. Bathrooms, private showers, and laundry facilities are available to registered marina guests. Also, enjoy access to our outdoor pool.
Not much nearby. Surface of wooden docks poorly maintained.
It was nice to have a Casino so close to the dock, the Gas dock does not work at all wasted 30 min trying to get it working. No one was a the Marina office so had to ask some locals for the codes to access bathrooms, Bathrooms could use a “Deep” cleaning
Our experience was less than great! The docks are in poor condition with protruding nails and loose power stantion. One water faucet was frozen shut. The dock attendant was a passive observer rather than helping to fend as we docked. This resulted in a scratch in our top sides from one of the protruding nails. If I can avoid it, I won’t be back.
Im not an Atl City kinda person, but setting that aside, sooo this marina if you can. Staff is non-existent. The guy at check-in was clueless. Dock conditions are hit and miss. Ours had rotted boards, popped nails and a loose cleat. Facilities are clean and suitable. But for $3/ ft, I expect more.
They cleaned up the marina since the last owner ran it. But there wasnt enough staff for a holiday weekend. When we checked in, we werent provided any details on events going on at the casino.
Well protected marina, great dockhands. Waaaaay too loud at all hours.
Great Location, Friendly Staff, Amazing Restaurants!! Cant wait to come back again next Summer!!
Nice facility. A bit disorganized this visit. I was moved twice and I did not see a dock hand my entire stay.
6 years we have been going to Fakefest, with about 7-9 boats and about 40+ people. This is the busiest weekend of the year according to the dock hands. THERE IS NEW MANAGEMENT. The location of our group was as expected, except for a large abandoned boat which separated our group, which has obviously been there for a very long time by our understanding. The floating docks are old, lots of splinters, loose boards and overall not maintained. The dock boys were great. We had an 80' Hatteras on the other side of the main dock, which was allowed and not corrected to winch up the craft so the entire main dock was raised up on the side of the Hatteras and was low on the other side, which made for the dock to be very uneven and rub the pilings continuously, making an annoying noise with every motion of the water from boat wakes. The music awesome. The pool at the Golden Nugget is way overcrowded.
Marina staff were very pleasant. Quite surprised to have the crew from the Mega Yachts sitting on the finger dock texting at midnight.
No help with dockage - facility understaffed given the number of transients. WiFi unusable. On the plus side, great protection from storm conditions; great dining options; easy bike access to board walk.
Wifi was not available except in the office for office employees. One said we've had problems and another employee said we've had no complaints. One the two dryers out of order. No place to get quarters for laundry. Service people very aloof. Pool & hot tubs on 7th floor of hotel was awesome, but no place to change except in the bathrooms. Would not go back.
Special thanks to Jesse Lewison, Marina Supervisor and Nicholas LaRotonda, Director of Marina Operations, for taking the time to help us with our upcoming reservations. We dropped by the office unannounced and they both stopped what they were doing to help us out. We have always had great experiences during our visits. Deck hands are happy and very helpful. It's always a great time! Louis Fischer Salty Parrot, Barnegat, NJ
It's not yet the season, so the docks were not very clean, and the fuel dock was closed. Also, the marina is a bit isolated, everything is far from it.
Just visited the marina while heading north for the summer from FL! Noticed alot of improvements taking place!! Restrooms being renovated as well as a new bulk head and walk way being completed. Very friendly staff and knowledgeable of the area! Had a excellent meal at Chart House. Looking forward to coming down to stay a few nights and listen to the bands on the Deck!
Dock was covered with goose and bird poop. Very slippery and dirty and dangerous. Not cool when docking your yacht and having to walk in that crap.
This Marina seems run-down compared to other marinas with this dockage rate. We entered at sunset and found it difficult to distinguish the various ways to get to the many marinas. It would be a good choice for those who want to spend some time in the area though.
The marina and the office manager was nice. However, the fuel dock attendant was not attentive or helpful.
No help docking, in fact never saw anyone while we were there. Docks covered with bird droppings. No one have us a gate code, so had to climb over the gate.
Easy entry. Professional dock hands. Great entertainment on the Deck.
Nice docks but they sent me down the 30' and under fairway instead of the bigger one. Made for some really dicey handling in the breeze and then I had to move as I stuck out too far.... Showers are fine but predate the private dressing area era. Can get Jitney to boardwalk. Unless you gamble there isn't anything in walking distance. Casino restaurants (low end) were mediocre. Nice deck bar but was either too crowded with a too loud band or deserted as we had a front come through.
Great Stop, Helpful Staff!! Great entertainment beautiful pool area! Reasonable fuel prices and in slip pump out available.
Friendly Staff!! Lots of improvements made to Fuel Dock and also offers Active Captain discount! Great bands on The Deck! Dock master Nick was very personable and knowledgeable of the area!
It was okay Golden Nugget was very crowded no space at the pool
Marina can accommodate larger boats, dock hands where helpful. The docks could use some updating very dated. Not much to do for kids, a good stop over point.
Beautiful Marina! Great location and staff! Competitive fuel pricing and lots to do in the area. Amazing rooftop pool and free WiFi. Looking forward to my next trip down during Fakefest on The Deck!!!!
No one available on arrival. Though there's a huge staff on hand for the restaurant and casino, no one knew the code to get back through the gate to return to the boat after finding the marina office closed, even security personnel. Not friendly to the average guy.
Amazing Marina lots of amenities great location! Staff is very helpful and friendly! Looking forward to visiting this marina again in the future!
Dock was clean and safe. Staff was very well informed and attentive. Excellent work to all!
It was an excellent trip. Staff was very friendly.
Was a little disappointed when I came in to the marina. It looks like they are under construction on the land portion of the marina. The fuel dock is closed until Memorial Day Weekend, which was unexpected. Unfortunately it is about the only game in town, so you have to suck it up and hope that get things sorted out soon.
