First visit to El Cortez in years. Casino updated and cleaner. Not as smoky. More spacious and wide open. Very pleasant. Still many single and double deck games, but unfortunately, the minimums are $5. Remember the old dollar tables and even the 24 cents craps tables. Those are no more.

This hotel is a great location if you want to be near the Fremont "experience". I can't speak to the Casino part of the hotel, as I don't gamble, but it appeared to be just like any other casino. The rooms were large and very well appointed. The bedding very nice as were the towels and amenities. Coffee was courtesy... More

The room was nice, large. Would have been nice to have a complementary coffee in the morning rather then having to pay 5$ for the coffee in the room. Handicapped parking was easy but the way we came in was blocked off when we left. Which led to having a long walk then getting lost. The room was clean, staff... More

We stayed here in their suites. They are comfortable and nicely remodeled, if you don't like walking through a smoky casino before bed that tower is the place to be. We love the retro feel of the place. Employees are great to talk to and once you walk in they make you feel important like you're a regular. Really reminds... More

LOVED my recent stay at the El Cortez (the longest running hotel/ casino in Las Vegas!). The biggest draw was the location/ neighborhood and the crazy low price (TOTAL price... resort fees were less than $10.00 /day). Staff was friendly and always very helpful, rooms were clean and exactly as pictured. I am excited to return to the El Cortez... More

Decided to stay at El Cortez after getting an outstanding rate on a Super Suite. There is now a resort fee, so that drives the price up a bit since the last time I stayed here there wasn't one, but still a great value depending on when you book. I booked this January stay back in August and got the... More

Staff very nice, friendly, and helpful. Casino was great. Cabana suite was a little small, but very clean and comfortable. Thank you El Cortez for a great time. Hotel's location was very close to Fremont experience. Many restaurants, shopping, and bars close to hotel. Will stay here in the future.

This was my 3rd stay at the El Cortez. Previously 2 stays were in the updated Cabana Suites which are a bit gaudy but fun. This last time we were booked into the hotel/casino (room 304), the room is dated (which is fine) however, the main problem was the plumbing. Upon checking in the sink had clearly backed up and...

Checked into the Hotel on a Thursday Night. Booked the room for 30 bucks with taxes and only had to pay 10 dollars more for the resort fee. That 40 bucks got me a large room, 2 queen size beds, cable television and a mini fridge I could use. The area is a bit seedy if you're away from the... More
