This was the best hotel we've stayed at in years. Super friendly staff and beautiful grounds and gorgeous interior. Easy check-in and security to use the elevators. Our bellhop could not have been friendlier. The room was A+. Great bathroom with a glass shower [I do wish they had spend a few extra dollars and had higher toilet seats - always feel sorry for people with bad legs. Comfortable bed and pillows. Quiet room. Would stay again. There are two full restaurants in the casino area.
Stopped in on a weekday afternoon. Clean and pretty quiet. Good parking. Easy access from beltway. Located on the edge of the Aliante master-planned community located in North Las Vegas next the beltway. Seems like a nice neighborhood. It is a Boyd casino. Movie theater was open. So my summary is if you are looking for a nice local casino to relax at, and perhaps stay at the hotel, this would be a good choice.
This restaurant was terrible. I still have heartburn. My fried shrimp was well done, dark brown instead of golden and the fries were worse than day old Mc Donald’s. The service was good, but we ordered chips and salsa to eat before dinner with our drinks and they never came so we cancelled them.
We arrived at the hotel on 4/9/2021. First observation is Do Not take a Taxi from the airport to the property. It is a $120.00+ fare with tip and the driver complained the whole way that it was a waste of his time to drive that far. Get an Uber. It is anywhere from $40.00 to $80.00 depending on which type of car you choose. When we approached the Front Desk we were not greeted with the usual “Good Afternoon and welcome to the Aliante” but with a stern and rather snarky “pull your mask over your nose” from the front desk woman. It really set the tone for our entire stay and was our first encounter with the Mask Police” at The Aliante. Check in other than that was smooth. Our room on the 9th floor (two Queen beds) was very clean and comfortable. The only thing is the bathtub/shower had a rather high entry point. If you are physically challenged make sure you get a room with a walk-in shower. Our floor was relatively quiet excepting the random shouting from other guests. Elevators were at the ready and we rarely waited more than a minute for one to arrive. They have a security guard posted near the first-floor elevators to insure only registered guests have access to the rooms. My wife and I felt safe while we stayed on tis property. The Aliante had limited dining options. The Market, The Salted Lime, TGIF, The Farm & Starbucks are your only options. The Buffet & Nathans Hot Dogs were closed. We ate at The Salted Lime our first night. It has Mexican fare and was very good. The servers were excellent and attended to our needs quickly & professionally. For Breakfast we dined at The Farm. Again, the food and servers were excellent. The last night we ate at TGIF. Not as large a menu as most “Fridays” but there was a good selection. Food was tasty and the servers were just as good as the other restaurants. The Pool and Deck were very nice. The pool is fairly large and not too deep. Water quality was good and warmish. They have plenty of chairs and loungers. They also have six large Cabanas with couches, chairs, TV, refrigerator, and a paddle fan. We rented two for a day. They were stocked with towels and a can of spray on suntan lotion. Nice touch. Our bar server was awesome. She attended to us like we were the only ones there. However, a lot of the fun was sucked out by the ever present “Mask Police”. They would come around every 30 minutes or so barking at people to cover their faces unless we were “actively” eating, drinking or in the pool. So, a lot of us kept our legs in the pool or a drink in our hand. As with most pools, it was located “OUTSIDE”. We feel they went a little overboard on that deal. The Casino is one level and quite large. Lots of electronic slots and video poker/card machines. It had a Bingo room and a large sports betting area. The table games were encased in plexiglass to maintain “social distancing”. I enjoy Roulette. But we could only find one staffed and they only allowed four players at a time. When I approached the table to purchase some chips, I was unaware of the number of people at the table. It was four. The woman dealer in a very terse tone and a raised voice told me to keep six feet away. No “Please sir, maintain six feet from the table”. It was “you must stand away six feet”. At this point in our stay, I was getting a bit perturbed by the treatment we were receiving from some of the staff at The Aliante. It seems the higher up in the position they held, the nastier they became. All the Bellmen, Valet attendants, Housekeeping staff, some of the Security staff and Waitstaff treated us like royalty. Management, Front Desk and casino dealers not so much. One more comment. To the Aliante’s credit, the entire property is spotless. It is one of the cleanest Casino/Hotels we have visited in Las Vegas. It is of course, off “The Strip” which means it is quiet and you do not get all the “street vendor” people trying to give you cards for the “chicken ranches” and strip joints. Some first-time folks should try the strip once to experience the glitz and giant fountains, but we prefer a more subtle experience. So, my ratings are as follows with 5 stars being the highest: 5 stars for the service staff. 5 stars for cleanliness. 4-1/2 stars for the restaurants only because I wish there were more choices. 4 stars for the pool. 2 stars for the Check in and Casino due to the not so welcoming treatment we received. Final comment, I get it. The Casino/Hotels operate under the heavy hammer of the Nevada Gaming Commission. And I am sure like any government agency these days that must deal with public safety the Gaming Commission and the City of Las Vegas/North Las Vegas has reacted in a way that they think is best. But what they have done is take all the fun out of The Las Vegas experience with ridiculous rules and “mandates”. My advice is if all you want is a nice “gaming & partying” experience, go to another state that is not so overly restrictive. So, my rating for The Las Vegas of today is 1 star.…
Aliante is a very nice local casino that is clean and not crowded during the week during COVID. The rooms are very clean, the staff is very friendly. The Farm restaurant is a great restaurant to eat at no matter which meal you are hungry for. The food is very good, with big portions at a reasonable price. Daily specials are available along with alcohol. If you have a players card you can get great deals on your meals. I eat there often
