Flew in from North Carolina for a girls weekend in Vegas. I absolutely hate the layout of the airport. I don't like that you have to be bused to the rental car companies and having to wait for hours to get a car that you've already paid for. Most of the staff is friendly and I love the casinos in...

This airport is centrally located and very easy to navigate- inside and out. I flew in and out of T3 Terminal which I was told is the newer part of the airport. Very clean and very clear signage. This was my first time in this airport and I had no problem getting around.

The Airport is very easy to navigate and has been built to accommodate a large number of people. Transport to the terminals is fast and easy to use

I actually ended up spending 6 hours at the airport yesterday and there was plenty of entertainment, food and drinks to go around. I especially enjoy taking a few pictures in front of the welcome to Las Vegas sign as well as spending a few dollars at the slot machines located right near my gate. Not a bad place for... More

I'll start with the good. Baggage check-in and security were both smooth and easy. There is free WiFi, which made waiting four hours for my flight infinitely more bearable. This is the most aesthetically pleasing airport I have been to, as would be expected of an airport in a touristy city like Vegas. Some parts are quite detailed and the... More

Where else but Vegas? A neat and not-too-big modern airport with the usual last minute shoping mall Also, care for a last minute tipple on the pokies?

Given the amount of money that flows through this city, this airport is one of the most shoddy. The airport is crowded, dirty and lacking in amenities.

The airport can get a little chaotic in my opinion. There are tons of people everywhere and the baggage claim area was very loud with a big screen blasting music. Not fun after a long flight with a headache. The shuttle to get to the rental car area was irritating as well. On the way to pickup the car the... More

One of the nicest airports I have been to. Clean, plenty of food choices as well as shopping for that last minute souvenir. I see some complaints from others on food and prices but a breakfast sandwich for less than $5 is fine with me. I don't recall where it was at but there is a really nice display with... More

McCarran is an efficient airport. The layout is easy and it is quick from touchdown, to gate, to baggage and out. It is NOT easy going from one terminal to the next. The wait for a bus was very long and you felt like you were waiting in the middle of s parking lot. Not well thought out. A tram... More
