The check in line was a nightmare I stood in line over 1 hr. The room was small but was well appointed in retro deco in black, green and white, perfect size for one person. The bathroom was also upgraded, no tub, very nice glass shower. The only other bad thing was the very heavy door to the room it... More

When staying downtown, we normally stay at Golden Nugget. I read reviews about this hotel and decided to give it a try. I am so glad we did!! The room is spacious, comfortable, with a fantastic window. I loved the low price of the resort fee of $8.95 per day. I loved the ample parking space and ease of entering/exiting... More

We stayed in the Cabana suites. It was a pleasant stay. Quiet and comfortable. Check in was easy and only had a few hidden deposit fees. I wouldn't really call our room a suite but it was cheap and close to downtown, without being right on Freemont. I always like to stay downtown where the action is. Didn't enjoy the... More

My husband and I stayed in a Tower Room for one night. It was so charming, super clean and has been well maintained. I had not expected such a nice place for the price. I would stay here again and would recommend to friends. The location was easy to find and close to everything we could imagine. The parking lot... More

Love staying downtown for March madness. Overall the hotel is exactly what you are paying for. Nothing fancy but clean and safe. We have been staying here for years and the area has changed dramatically over the last 10 years. We will be back again next year. Great place for a guy's trip. Would not stay here with my girlfriend... More

A friend and myself were staying a couple extra days in Las Vegas to play some golf. I booked a pavilion room through hotels.com at a very reasonable $24.00 a night. Add in the 9.00 resort fee and it's still worth it. These rooms are located on the fifth floor of the parking garage and we felt fine. Others have... More

Stayed in a Tower Room, comfy, clean, and did not smell of smoke. Bed a little hard for me, however, because I have a pillow top mattress at home, lol!, but I got use to it. 8th floor, no noise facing the mountains. nice. Yes the casino IS smokey, but hey it has an old vegas vibe that is fun,... More

The room is spacious but a bit dated. Fortunately, it has no smell even though the casino floor sinks with cigarette smoke. The location is great for experiencing Fremont. The staff was professional. Good price for the room!
