We stayed at Arizona Charlie's for two nights and the only problem we had was with the TV remote. Not a "real" problem though, because we aren't big on watching TV anyway. Our room was clean and very large for a standard room! I read a lot of reviews of a lot of different hotels and I found "some" people will complain no matter where they stay. I even read one review that stated the Hilton was a dump! Okay, I guess you can't please all the people all of the time. I guess the quality of a room depends on what you're looking for. We were looking for a clean room, good value, and the standard basics of a good hotel with a restaurant. Arizona Charlie's exceeded what we were looking for!
We had our own car so location wasn't a factor for us. Since we were in Las Vegas for an event at the Silverton (they were full for the nights we were in Vegas) we were doomed to drive no matter where we stayed. We were a short hop from the freeway so getting to the Silverton was a breeze. The strip was busy whether we came from the direction of the Silverton or the direction of Arizona Charlie's. The fact is, Vegas is a busy place and driving down the strip is going to take a while. Relax and enjoy the view!
I didn't see any "tar" hanging off the vents in our room or in the casino, and I looked because of a couple of reviews I read. It would appear they cleaned that up. I agree that the food was excellent! For breakfast we had steak and eggs, cooked to perfection and it only cost 2.99! It was far more food then I could finish! My husband signed up for their club card while I was playing a slot machine. He came over and put his card in my machine and we ended up getting a free buffet (reaching 50 points on the card) from the dollar I put in the slot machine!
While we ate at the buffet we played Keno because the fortune cookie I got had some "lucky numbers" printed on the message inside. It won enough to pay for our Keno playing while eating! lol. All in all, the buffet food was pretty good. Naturally, the best part of a buffet is that you can always get something else to eat if you don't like your first pick. For me, the Prime Rib was undercooked, but that's just my own taste. My own fault for not paying attention.
Parking was GREAT! We got lucky everytime we parked at the hotel and got a space near the door. There is parking on both sides of the hotel/casino so we opted for the side nearest our room. I wonder if others are aware of BOTH parking lots? It could make a difference between writing a good or bad review about walking distance to their room.
We didn't have any problems with the heating unit in our room, the hot water, toilet or noise from another room. The staff was friendly and always seemed to be very happy! We only paid $21.00 per night for the room, so what more could we ask for???!!! I will be staying there again!
