Barbary Coast

I have checked the comments listed specifically for the Barbary Coast Hotel, but I was wondering if there were any others out there who had any information on this hotel?

Good, Bad? Cheap and nasty? Decent enough to survive the LV experience? Or is it just like a B&B?

hi, are you booking your trip direct or through an agent. i tell you why i ask.... i did try and try to get the best price booking direct etc. however i booked vai united vacations and they give me the best price by miles. they have a very good rate on aladdin which may or may not be the same as you may pay for a cheaper hotel someowhere else. its worth checking them out.

Nice small hotel. Best of all locations. Casino section a bit worn, but the rooms are well above B&B quality if my B&B experience is any measure. (If the rooms were of even middling Euro/UK B&B quality, most US visitors would be calling for the wrecking ball.)

Main drawback to Barbary Coast is that there is no pool (you can take a shuttle bus to a sister hotel and use its pool). Great "Big Elvis" afternoon show in the lounge, though.

It is small by Vegas standards, so it does have the feel of a B&B of sorts sitting among the mega-hotels with which it shares the corner -- Caesar's, Bellagio, and Bally's/Paris.

We are trying to book the hotels direct through hotels. We already have the flights booked as we are travelling over to San Fran from LV so had to be quite specific with flights... But I think I will try this company you have mentioned as trying to book direct is proving quite difficult.. even though I thought if you spoke direct to the hotels you'd get a better deal. I think I have been mislead somewhere along the way.

I have been to LV before and stayed at the LV Hilton which was nice but a bit of a way out hence the reason to stay on the strip this time.

i think we saved about £200 on 9 nights at the aladdin booking with united. they said they would do the hotel without the flight but in the end the flights where the cheapest and best for us aswell. we are goinf to san fran first for 5 nights then vegas. you can find united at www.unitedvactions.co.uk

keep me informed!

We stayed at the BC two years ago and it was great. It's not the flashest - but it's clean, comfy and usually very well priced. And it's at the best location in Vegas!

The casino is "just", but that's ok because it's spitting distance from all the big ones.

Go to barbarycoastcasino.com, enter the website, click on HOTEL and go to the rate calendar. If you like what you see, you can book online (but confirm by phone afterwards - especially if you want a non-smoking room).

You won't be disappointed!

I really like the BC. It's clean, has a great location, the rooms are spacious and quiet (unless you're facing the Bally's sign), and the coffee shop is pretty decent. If they had a pool, I'd stay there more often. You can usually find pretty good rates, too.
