I was not impressed with my family's latest visit. I think the best way to do this is to itemize the good and bad. I'll start with the good. The Good 1) The casino floor was beautiful. Doesn't belong on Fremont 2) The Market had O Face Donuts 3) I met some nice people of the very few that were... More

Friendly staff, especially Brittney at the Cabana Suites. Room was small, and needed better lighting. No chair in the room, only place to sit was on the bed. To write using the credenza I had to kneel on the floor. The bathroom sink could use a larger countertop to place toiletries on.

This hotel is fine if your #1 priority is value. If it is anything else you should probably keep looking. If you book ahead online the deals are truly amazing. My weekend night was fairly average, but I paid less than $20 for the next two weekday nights. I stayed in a pavilion room, exterior corridor and very motel-like from... More

We visited the Casino at El Cortez. We had fun while we were here, and we won a few dollars more than we put in. The casino was nicely spaced and had a good vibe to it. I would play here again. Its a bit off of the main part of Fremont, but still close enough to the Fremont experience.

We stayed in the vintage rooms directly above the casino floor. The room was on the small side but had vintage charm. The bed was average, not too memorable. The air conditioner was terrible! We had it on full blast and could barely feel it! We were only there one night so we did not ask to change. The room... More

My overall experience was great but for the future make sure when you make the reservation you stay in constant contact because something goes wrong and you get lost in the system but they do their best to make it right so I do appreciate that from them my other issue was once I decided to downgrade to a smoking...

I've been coming here for a few years now whenever I am in town, and I have to say that if you stay in the tower rooms, they are pretty comfortable. The only real downside to this hotel is its age, and it sorely needs a major renovation. The casino itself is limited to slot machines and a few blackjack... More

Neat old hotel with a lot of history. We stayed in a cabana room which required parking in a parking garage and walking to a separate building. The room was small but modern. The bathroom was very nice. We didn't hear any street noise at night. The hotel is right in downtown Vegas (old Vegas) so you can walk to... More

My parents introduced me to the El Cortez over 25 years ago. I have been going there and enjoying stays there ever since. I have found the staff to always be very pleasant and if I needed anything during my stay very helpful. On occasion there might be a small issue with the room I'm in but they always go... More

115 degrees outside, every bit of over 100 in our room. June 27, 2015 checked in, an hour later checked out, yet they still charged me resort fees for week plus 8 days hotel stay. They did send an inept A/C repair (hotel handyman) who said and I quote, this is normal, this A/C unit is doing all it can... More
