Smack dab in the heart of the action on the Boardwalk, Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel & Casino has three hotel towers, and 4,000 parking spaces.
As with most casinos in Atlantic City, parking here comes at a price.
Parking is free for hotel guests. Non-hotel guests can score free self-parking if you have a player’s card at a certain level, or if you meet minimum gambling or dining spend at the resort (more on that below).
Bally’s Self- Parking Fee Atlantic City
While technically “free,” hotel guests receive the complimentary self-parking as part of the nightly resort fee Bally’s AC charges all guests. Otherwise, these are standard rates, which can increase during busy three day weekends (such as during the airshow, July 4th, etc.), and other special events.
|Non-Hotel Guests||$25 per day|
|Platinum, Black or Red Card Members||Free|
Free Parking at Bally’s Atlantic City
There are four ways to get free self-parking here: (1) Having a player’s card at a certain level (2) Being a Hotel guest (3) Gambling, (4) Dining.
- Player’s Card
Bally’s AC casino’s player’s card has four levels, starting with Gold, then going (in order): Platinum, Black, then the highest level, Red.
Self-parking is complimentary to all of those above the Gold level.
2. Hotel Stay
For hotel guests, self-parking is free via a parking voucher you will receive at the front desk at check-in.
Anyone can get free parking by using a Bally’s player’s card and earning 10 tier credits in one day.
I assume this means both on slots and table games, however the policy is not specifically explained. Either way, after earning at least 10 tier credits, you’ll go to one of the promotional kiosks in the casino and swipe your card, upon which you’ll receive a voucher. You’ll take the voucher to the parking garage cashier when leaving.
Those who spend at least $50 at a Bally’s AC restaurant can receive a free voucher for self-parking. Be sure to ask your waitperson or cashier about this when paying.

Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel & Casino Valet Parking Price
Per their website, “At this time, valet parking is reserved for Bally’s Top Tier Players Card (Red and Black Cards).” It is free for those at either level.
We will try to update this as soon as the valet parking policy changes. Previously, everyone could use the valet service by paying $30 a night.

Bally’s Atlantic City Parking Garage Directions
Self parking: Entrance into the self-parking garage is off of S. Michigan Avenue. Going towards the hotel, after you pass Pacific Avenue, the self-parking garage entrance will be clearly marked on your right.
Access to Bally’s Casino is via two pedestrian skyways that cross over both S. Michigan Avenue and Pop Lloyd Avenue.
Valet parking: You have two options. First, you can follow the directions above on S. Michigan Avenue. However instead of turning right into the parking garage, you’ll continue a few feet further towards the beach, where you’ll clearly be directed to the casino valet area on Pop Lloyd Blvd.
The other way, which is faster for those of you using the hotel valet, is to head towards the beach on S. Ohio Avenue. South of Pacific Avenue, you’ll see the hotel valet parking stand on your right.
- Bally’s AC does not have parking spots for oversized vehicles.
- Clearance into the self-parking garage is 6 feet, 4 inches.
- Although they are no longer owned by Caesars Entertainment, Bally’s AC is connected to Caesars Atlantic City via an enclosed pedestrian walkway, so you can always park there if you wish. Go here for Caesars AC Parking Fee.
- While it is not specifically mentioned on their website, in recent times, Bally’s charged $40 for special event pricing.
- While that seems high, just a few years ago it was even higher. The Press of Atlantic City ran an article written by Donald Wittkowski that showed self-parking to be $50 for events such as the Blake Shelton concert. As a result of the high parking fees, a New Jersey assemblyman asked the state to investigate possible price gouging. I’m not sure what became of the complaint, however it’s interesting to note prices are lower today, after the assemblyman made noise about it.
- Bally’s opened in December of 1979 as “Bally’s Park Place.” The Wild Wild West Casino opened in 1997.
- There are three hotel towers. The main, tall, pink windowed one is Bally’s Tower with 750 rooms. Jubilee rooms you’ll see advertised on Bally’s website are nicer, renovated upper floor rooms (floors 36 to 44), in the Bally’s Tower.
The original Dennis Tower, which was built in 1921, blocks ocean views from people staying at the Garden Tower.
The third one is the Garden Tower, which is a three story addition on top of the valet parking garage. It’s connected to the resort via a pedestrian skyway.
- In 2020, Caesars Entertainment sold Bally’s Atlantic City to Rhode Island casino company, Twin River Worldwide Holdings, which later changed their corporate name to Bally’s.
