4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

After visiting Freemont, we made it over to El Cortez. I site down at the cheapest BJ table ( guess 5$?) and played an hour or two. and if i remember well, it was a 3-2 table, so not the 6-5 tables which you find on the strip at every casino for low limits. We had a great dealer who... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days in June. We loved the hotel with that old vegas style, the stale cigarette smell in the casino was comforting, the food at the cafe was great and cheap. BUT there was an incident that really made us angry. We had just gotten back from an exhausting 6 or 7 hours... More

Paid for a cabana room which is the higher rate room, room is ghetto smaller than a jail cell, completely disappointed, when i asked to move to another room (less of a value) was asked to pay more, ridiculous....go to another hotel you will be happier.

One more visit to Las Vegas in less than a year...ooff :) This time just for one night stay, but with a different hotel. I would give it 3.5 instead of 4 but since Tripadvisor does not have 3.5 I would give the benefit to hotel. After reading the reviews I booked the room in tower instead and it was... More

I stayed here only for one night as i needed to be close to the Greyhound bus depot. Check in was quick and friendly. There is a resort fee which gives you internet and some other goodies that should all be included in the hotel room price. The fee is $8.95. As soon as I entered the casino/hotel the smell... More

I like to stay at the El Cortez hotel when I'm in Las Vegas as it is nostalgic for me. I remember driving through Las Vegas as a kid in the 1960's every year on our family vacation and seeing the hotels in what is the Fremont street area. One of these hotels was the El Cortez. It is like... More

Stayed in a tower room in mid-September, which was my third time at the El Cortez. These rooms are spacious and comfortable and are a great bargain for the price. There is an in-room safe, flat screen TV with many channels, refrigerator, coffee-maker, desk, and good wi-fi service. The bathrooms are smallish and dated, but they are clean and functional... More

a nice hotel, one room can fit 4 ppls, small bathroom, we had no breakfast, walking distance to fremont where you can find lots of food and fun, especially on weekend, don't spend your money too much on hotel if you will spend most of your time outside.

I stayed in a vintage room above the casino at El Cortez for four nights and had a great time. I actually didn't mind the "stairs only" access, no waiting for the elevator, quick to come and go. The rooms are old but clean and functional, everything worked, air conditioning was great for a hotel this old, wifi worked well.... More

Jim has had a players card for years and whenever we head to Vegas we make reservations here. The hotel is warm and inviting and the staff is very friendly. We haven't met anyone there we haven't liked immediately. The rooms are all exceptional! No matter if it's the Pavillion, the Towers, the Cabana Suites, a Jacuzzi Suite, the Designer... More
