Staying in the El Cortez tower is kind of like staying with your grandmother, everything in the room is really old but extremely clean. I their defense, they have added large flat screen TVs and refrigerators to the rooms. I think this was possibly the cleanest hotel room I have ever stayed in. The casino is probably one of the...

Chose the Cabana Suites because of the reviews that we read. After a long drive from Texas it was a pleasant surprise. The parking garage was well lit and attended 24 hrs. It felt safe and we did not have any issues. The parking is free for Hotel guess with room key and for others it is 5 dollars a... More

We absolutely love this casino. Sadly, our first time staying here was a disaster. We booked two tower rooms and asked that they be on the same floor at booking. No go. The non-smoking room was a smoking room. The beds were rock hard. The pillows were like bricks. The sinks in both rooms wouldn't drain. The tub in one... More

Pros: We paid only $79 per nights for the super suites after charges since we got a promotion mailed to us. They also offer fee shuttle service to the airport every hour during the day six days a week. They are by far the most generous when it comes to comps. On top of getting 15 off the 24hr diner...

I’ve been to this hotel before and this is the second review I’ve made for The El Cortez. I’m originally from Vegas and we come here mainly to visit family. We love staying here for many reasons, which I mentioned in our first review. This time staying here was yet again great. The hotel room was clean and really pretty... More

Brand New...Restaurant at the El Cortez in Downtown Las Vegas ..Open 24/7..Very Nice ..Needs Curtains to cover the outside slots...Needs carpet to muffle the loudness..Nice Menu for everyone's taste. We crossed over to the Parlor Bar for dessert from Siegels 1941and some delicious Keoke Coffees. TOM the bartender was great. Old school VEGAS.

Now, let me start off by saying we overall enjoyed our time at the El Cortez. The tower room (8th floor) was of a generous size for the price paid and the casino, while not tremendously large, is nice with old-school quarter-clanging fun. The room, however, doesn't have the most comfortable beds nor pillows. Both mornings I awoke with a... More

If your wallet is what you care about and you love downtown this is the were you should stay. I cannot say enough good things about the staff. two different members of the staff helped me with some stuff that people at other cheap hotels would I told me to burn rubber. It is a little small

I have been a bit busy so writing this review a little late. I stayed at this hotel from 5/1/15 - 5/4/15. I was in Vegas for a friend's wedding. Unfortunately my stay was during the time of the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight. The event super inflated the price for all things around the area. I booked online through expedia and lucked... More
