Formerly the Hilton, the beachside Atlantic Club hotel and casino has shifted its attention toward budget travelers by touting special packages that bundle lodging, food, and spa discounts. Rooms are bright, airy, and uncluttered, and many have ocean views. Restaurant options run from casual to slightly fancy, with quick café and deli fare as well as sit-down Italian and Chinese cuisine. Right on the sand, it also has a fun Boardwalk beach bar that's the cornerstone of
its nightlife. There's a theater that hosts bands and stalwart comedians, but big-name shows are sporadic (once or twice a month).
