Let's start from the only positive thing: price is very low and if you search a budget option in L.V downtown it could be fine to stand one or two,maximum,nights.
I booked a vintage room and got a pavillion one,which is said to be slightly nicer.
They are located at the 5th floor of the hotel parking and they are large enough but terribly dirty.
This is what i couldn't stand. I found several hair in the rooms,stains and even some disgusting traces left ,probably by somebody who drank too much the previous night.
Complained at the reception and instead of geniune apologizes ,i got a total indifference.
The hotel stand in a dodgy area and the casino also gather some of these people so it's not worth staying even for the free bet and the free drink provided at the check in desk.
Overall i wouldn't recommend if just travelling on a tight budget. I definetely made a mistake in choosing el cortez.
