Wow. We have probably stayed at Sam's town 25 times over the last 10 years. I am surprised I have not already written a review.
What is Sam's town? It is a locals casino, with lots of slot machines and video poker.not a lot of table games, but they have $3 minimum bets.The hotel rooms are best compared to a Courtyard or Hampton Inn.
What is Sam's town not? It is not on the Strip. It is not near the Strip. If this is your first visit to Las Vegas, do not consider Sam's town. You will be disappointed. You will need a car. Unlike strip hotels, there will not be a line of taxis to shuttle you around town. Sam's town is so far from anything else, a taxi would be cost prohibitive in any event.
Other reviews have provided a lot of information about the hotel and casino. I thought I would provide our reason for visiting this hotel 25+ times.
We like the low limit gambling options. At least low limit compare to strip hotels.The rooms are clean and functional. As many people say, why would you stay in your room when you go to Las Vegas? Sam's town has recently upgraded some rooms to their "premium" category. Premium means there is a mini refrigerator and coffee maker in the room, and they have put doors over the space for hanging clothes, creating a closet. As others have mentioned, all of the staff are friendly. There arereasonably priced food options on property. We do not need expensive,upscale dining.
One quick note if you are a poker player. Sam's town used to be one of the most popular poker rooms in Las Vegas. Really. But I am going back 10 years. For example, I once played craps with Phil Ivey after he left the poker room. The poker room still operates today but is a shadow of its former her self. In our most recent visit, we stayed for three days and there was never more than one table going at a time. interestingly, the one table never played no limit holdem.
Overall, we like Sam's town because we have been to Vegas numerous times and do not meet the hustle and bustle of the Strip. If you are going to Vegas primarily to gamble and reasonably priced accommodations, Sam's town is a good auction.
