My niece graduated in June and we needed a hotel but still wanted a fun experience. The hotel isn't a swanky fancy hotel but it was clean and probably one of the best nights sleep I've gotten in a hotel. The sheets where white with no stains, it didn't smell, it had shutters instead of dusty curtains like in other... More

The hotel is in the older part of Vegas, close to Fremont Street, and for location it is great, but the hotel itself is quite old and tired. Renovations are underway but there is a lot of work to be done for it to be up to the standards of the newer resorts up on the Strip. The room was... More

Thanks for your feedback. We are currently under a multi-million dollar renovation that has already updated our casino floor, Holo Holo Bar, Cal Sports Lounge, Noodle House and Redwood Steakhouse. We look forward to our west tower renovations in the fall to round out a busy 2016. We hope you'll give us another visit to see our changes first hand. More

Very safe and friendly staff. Multiple restaurants. Odds of winning is very fair. Maid and cleaning services are very efficient. Location is good for exploring and safe for walking and close to multiple restaurants.

The rooms are wonderful and clean. The staff treats everyone nicely. The rooms have been updated. Service is just a call and they bring whatever you might need. The food in all the places we ate was yummy. The casino is a casino no changes there.

An HONEST hotel/travel website is a dinosaur.Cannot find LV hotel that lays the cards on the table ( no pun) and gives you the out the door price right up front. They neglect to tell you up front about the mandatory /infamous resort fee, tax, and now, parking fees too. You pay even if u do not use the "amenities"... More
