My wife and I stayed at Sam's Town for three nights (Thur-Fri-Sat) in January. The hotel is located on Boulder Highway approximately 30 minutes driving time from the airport and approximately 15 minutes driving time from the strip. There is ample free parking. Free valet parking is also available (although we never used the valet service). Check-in was fast and efficient with no line Thursday evening. Our room was a standard non-smoking with a king bed. The room appeared to have been updated in the last 5 years or so and included a large flat screen TV. The room was comfortable and quiet. The bathroom was large. The room did not include a fridge, microwave, or coffee service. The daily resort fee was $10 and this fee included internet service. Check-out was quick with only two people in line Sunday morning.
The casino is large and offers full gaming including slot machines, poker machines, craps, blackjack, poker, roulette, etc. For "low rollers" (like us) the roulette table offers a $1 minimum bet ("inside or outside"). I did not find limits this low anywhere else in Vegas. The casino is a little smoky (but not as bad as some other casino's we visited). The property also offers a movie theatre and a bowling alley.
Overall our experience at Sam's Town was enjoyable. The staff were friendly. There was a nice "buzz" about the place. We saved a good bit of $$ compared to hotels on the strip. My wife and I agreed we will definately consider staying at Sam's Town the next time we visit Vegas.
