After traveling a bit around the west coast, I extended my trip with a few more nights in Las Vegas. In the past I always stayed on or near the strip, and wanted to try staying downtown. I stayed at the Golden Gate hotel for 4 nights and they were perhaps the best 4 nights I have had in Las... More

Everyone from the bartenders to the waitresses to the dealers was so nice, welcoming and helpful! I was with a group of about 20 and they treated us very well! They let us reserve a table, they made sure we were taken care of! I highly recommend visiting this casino/hotel!

In celebrating my engagement and a birthday party at Golden Gate, I have to say it was first class. The hospitality was above any experienced on my trip to Vegas. The pit bosses, particularly Wayne, were approachable and engaging and helped make the experience even better. I will return on my next visit to Vegas and highly recommend to anyone... More

The shrimp cocktail is legend... But remember this hotel is very old over 100 years... the rooms are small and so all the hallways and doorways. The bed is tiny to fit the room.. If you have lots of luggage I wouldn't recommend that you stay at this hotel. btw I got this room for 12.00 a night... so I... More

To my delight, Hotels.com comes up with a five day package trip to Las Vegas with a stay at the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, and round trip ticket on Virgin America for $360.00 (from JFK). I couldn't believe it and asked the representative which part of town they were in. Was this a bad neighborhood or safe? And where... More

The loss-leading shrimp cocktails are legendary: and rightly so. At $2.99 they are excellent value and very tasty as well. Had we not booked into the restaurant at the Stratosphere we would have eaten even more. Our waitress, Stephanie (possibly Steffany?) was friendly and helpful. An excellent place!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Accurately billed as Las Vegas' "Most Historic Hotel," the Golden Gate has stood the test of time and then some. Since opening as the Hotel Nevada in 1906, this modest and cozy corner establishment has stood placidly at One Fremont Street while the town -- and the world -- changed around it. Most notably, the Fremont Street Experience was built right outside its door. Very little has changed to compromise the hotel's old school charm in the intervening years, although the Golden Gate has made improvements and modernized. The hotel remains proudly dwarfed by its neighbors, at just 106 rooms. The rooms themselves, on the other hand, have been updated and include modern amenities like flat screen televisions and iHome clock radios. The casino is just as active as opening day -- and just as intimate -- although now its boasts Dealer Dancers from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. nightly. Its shrimp cocktail -- widely acknowledged as the first ever served in Las Vegas -- is as popular as the day it was introduced. Even as Las Vegas builds toward the heavens, the Golden Gate keeps close to the ground, rooted in its rich and wildly successful history. ... more   less
