We have been to LV 12 times, this was our first at the GN. We will stay here again. The check-in was fast and easy. We got there at 12PM and were in our room by 12:15PM. We asked for a quiet room on the top floor and that is what we got, in the Carson Tower. The room was very nice, clean and almost too spacious for us, we like boutique rooms a little better. The bathroom had a rain shower, was good sized and was very clean and new. We had a view of the Strip in the distance, and a view of the mountains. We ate at The Grotto and it was OK, not great, but OK. We ate at Carson's for breakfast and it was good. One night we went to Lilly's Asian for dinner and the noise from the chefs was too annoying, but that is the deal with a "kitchen stadium"...we should have known better. The food was fine, the noise was too much. Another thing, we go to LV to gamble, not to sit by the pool. But, we did go to the pool one day, for about 20 minutes. The piped in music was BAD, too much rap and junk and not enough jazz or mellow. It was actually a radio station so you had commercials too. I think the GN should start thinking about their older guests, maybe in the morning instead of piping in all that blaring techno dance music at top volume, tone it down and play some instrumental works, maybe even some old Vegas like The Rat Pack, Tony Bennett, Elvis and even Wayne Newton. IMO They need to get an old Vegas feel to the place, since this is old Vegas now.
My husband and I both agree, we may never go to the Strip again. We went for one day this trip. It was obnoxious, crowded, the music was intrusive and never let up, even in the street. The machines were tight and the table games overcrowded. The dealers were acting surly and annoyed. We had planned to go for the whole day, ended up staying on the Strip for 3 hours and then went back to Freemont, stopping for lunch at the top of the Stratosphere, which was the best dining experience I have ever had in LV. The food was very good, the atmosphere was calm, the views incredible and joy of joys, the music was jazz.
We had a great trip this time. And part of the reason was our stay at the GN. Overall the employees are considerate and helpful and the room was quiet and very well maintained. And all of this for $50. per night....how can you go wrong?
I do want to add this though. On some of the reviews here people are talking about being nickel and dimed for the small things. I do not blame the Hotels for doing this, because the room rates are very low. They keep the rates low so the gamblers will come and spend money in the Casinos. This trip I saw a lot of families and kids not gambling, but just hanging at the pool and hanging out on Freemont Street. To top it off, the children were running wild, the teens were usurping the pools. This is not Disney World, it is a gambling mecca. So if the hotels have to recoup the money they lose from these non-gambling people, by adding on fees for Wifi, coffee, etc. So be it.
