Clean, updated look with friendly helpful staff, away from the noise and cigarette smoke of the main hotel and casino, but still within an easy walk to Freemont and The Beat Coffeehouse. At the time they were charging $11 per device per day to access the in-room wifi which is why I've deducted 1 star; I understand that charging so... More

Noisy, out of the way and unfortunate choice. The best thing I can say is it is not dreadful and my stay was only 3 nights. That was more than enough. I won't be going back and I recommend you try somewhere else.

These hotel rooms are housed in a completely separate hotel building across the street behind the traditional El Cortez Hotel & Casino. There are only 64 of them, and they are GORGEOUS! The best part is the room prices are only about $5 per night more than the old El Cortez rooms across the street (which were built anywhere between... More

Wow, room was very nice and clean, was away from Fremont so quiet as Las Vegas goes. We would stay here again without question. Check in was in the old hotel where you can still smell the cigars from days gone by but don't let that put you off, the Cabana sites are very modern and clean.

I booked a Jr. Suite here for Thanksgiving weekend. I've stayed several places downtown, and the El Cortez was NEVER on my list of places I was willing to stay. Until recently, the area was very sketchy, the casino seemed old, and it seemed too far from the action of Fremont to make it worth considering. Boy was I wrong.... More

Our extended family headed to Vegas for a wedding the first week of October. Since it was bike week and the bride was staying at the El Cortez we decided to join her. First, if you are staying in the hotel stay in the Cabana Suites. They are lovely - nice sized room, very clean, has its own lobby with... More

Close to freemont, clean rooms. Small but what else do you need? Your not spending a lot of time in the rooms. Great value for your money. Free shuttle that takes you to the airport. Funky colours all through the hotel, gives you that retro feel. Always a security guard outside, so you are always safe. Stayed twice now, and... More

Every Wednesdays for all day meals are 1/2 price - only if you are over 50 years old We had a very nice breakfast for a price of one. The place is kind of aging, need to redecorate or remodel. Between 2 of us the bill came out $10.00 Nothing can beat this prices. Our waitress was super friendly too

Having tried most of the hotels on Strip and Downtown, I thought I'd give the El Cortez a try. I had read a review on VegasTripping when the Cabana Suites first opened, and was intrigued by them. Booked on Expedia for a long weekend right after Labor Day. Check in was in the main El Cortez hotel. At 2:00 on... More

I have wanted to stay at the Cabana Suites ever since they opened. I finally had a chance on my most recent trip when a local friend of mine decided that a group of us should bar hop on East Fremont and then stay at the El Co. I booked the Super Suite which only costs a bit more than... More
