Different from any other airport because of the slot machines. If you can resist stopping to play one on your way into or out of Las Vegas, you show great discipline. Easy airport to navigate.

My favorite airport ever! Any time we've ever played the slots in the airport, we've won - for starters. Knowing the airport like the back of your hand certainly helps make it a good review - but the ease and speed of this airport is beyond compare. They know what they're doing and it makes for such a pleasant, easy-peasy... More

I found this airport to be crowded and noisy, but it was not hard to negotiate. My wife says that the best thing about it is that the slot machines payout much more than do the hotels. The slot machines are everywhere, so if you need something to do to pass the time...

When we landed I was surprised by the slot machines everywhere. When we left I was just annoyed by all the noise. We landed on time, and boarded on time and the airport was clean.

Easy very well signposted. The tram runs quickly and efficiently, it's only on the early am departure it seems to have been running a bit behind.

I was very impressed while waiting for my plane back to CMH from Vegas. I could gamble, and there were plenty of places to eat and relax !

We flew to Vegas from Vancouver. I noticed we went thru US Immigration in Vancouver airport, and the moment you land in McCarran, you're in for the ultimate fun and no one will stop you now from committing "sin". Airport with slot machines? It's Vegas, baby!

The airport has slot machines, other than that it works pretty well now with the trains and TSA, it's pretty easy to get out. It's a walk to get to or from your gates and there is always a long que for a taxi, no Uber in Vegas

This is a very busy place, but I had to wait for my friend to fly in so I was there for over an hour. I thought the airport was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.

The people who work here are tacky and sad and probably came to vegas to chase a dream of winning big money and now they work at the airport. Nothing special about this airport except for the gloom and doom you feel from those who lost it all
