5 of us stayed up there for the weekend of 1/4/2014----1/6/2014. Well trip started ok until our friend got robbed in his room on 1/5/2014.

We knew the exact times it had to happen and with some easy investigation on there part could have determined if... More

I understood that the Hotel was old, but didn't realize the actual state of things. Room 1017 - 2 Queens - non-smoking. Ceiling tiles in the foyer area when you first step in had holes poked... More

Really old casino and resort. Low ceilings, small rooms, etc. However, I will say if you want to go old school it's cool. You can feel Sinatra and the rat pack's presence though so that was kind of worth it.

Found this place purely by chance after checking out of Circus Circus and searching for somewhere cheap to grab a bite to eat before we headed out for the day. We found it to be a little treasure nestled amongst the bigger behemoths of this cool little city. The staff here were all in my experience extremely friendly and helpful.... More

If you want a perfect atmosphere, play a little keno, super fast service, and have a big breakfast for a super cheap price, go here. We stayed at Harrah's but came over here every more for the breakfast. Food was great!!!

If you're a late sleeper beware. The roof is being renovated. We were sleeping in and the noise sounded like construction work was taking place next door. When I complained about everyone in the room not being able to sleep they offered us a room on another floor. They said we would have to leave the hotel if we wanted... More
