Sam's Town Hotel & Gambling Hall
Ranked #61 of 264 Hotels in Las Vegas
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This was the first time I stayed off the Strip and price was the main reason. Samstown Town had a very reasonable rate for 3 nights. It was a great experience. It is basically a one stop hotel for room, food, entertainment, and gambling. All of the restaurants are priced low. It has a movie theater and bowling. Rooms are clean and spacious. They also have a shuttle to the Strip if you are so inclined. No complaints or concerns.

We recently stayed for one night and were very happy with the cleanliness of the room! We also had their excellent Friday night buffet! We had a room facing the mountains which was beautiful. We will be back again!

I would characterize our stay as enjoyable and well worth the small price we paid for the night. If you want a nice, reasonably priced place that has the feeling of luxury and class that is away from the Strip area, then Sam's is the place to go.

We had a one night stay - this was our first time to stay here.

Clean room and bathroom - standard size. It has a wonderful parklike/forested courtyard area in the center of the complex which is flanked on four sides by the hotel rooms. This gives it a pleasant "New York tenement building block" feel. The courtyard is topped by an enclosed glass ceiling and air conditioned to "brr" cold. Which is OK since outside is 100 degrees plus but it was still too indecently cold for me.

We parked in the parking structure adjacent to the hotel. Be sure to take the proper parking structure - there was a huge one to the south which was not the primary one for the hotel.

The check-in was on one side of the courtyard area. Not entirely self-evident - we had to ask a worker where it was. Check-in was fast, friendly and efficient.

We ate at the Fireside buffet. I would rate it comparable in quality to the larger Las Vegas buffets but with limited choices. The dessert bar was pretty decent in size and quality of items.

At night there is a laserlight show with music and animated critters in the courtyard. It was pretty spectacular given that it was free. You need to jockey for good viewing spots. I opted to view from one of the windows that looks out onto the courtyard from an upper floor in the hotel.

You just can't beat the price for a room $25 a night. Rooms are very clean. We had family staying at the campground next door and was a short walk to go there. We got a players card just so we could have a cheap buffet can't go wrong with a $7 buffet for breakfast. Didn't hear anyone come home at 3am and loud. It was very quiet. We had a car so that was good to get around because it is 15 min from the strip. The beds are not the most comfortable, very hard.

Can't think of a better value or a friendlier place to stay in Las Vegas! Just walking through any part of the hotel or casino, employees will ask you how you're doing and if you're having fun. The restaurants and buffet are reasonable and the sports book deli is terrific. Plenty of action for all types of gambling. If you want to go to the strip or Freemont St., Sam's has a free shuttle. As I said, what more could you ask?

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the elevators (none of which are close enough to be noisy).

First time to Las Vegas and Sam’s town was a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are spacious and very clean, the casino area is large and there are plenty of games to play. They also have a movie theater and bowling alley if you get tired of gambling. It is a 15 min drive to the strip but it’s not a big deal, in fact it nice to get off the strip when you want to relax. We ate at TGI Fridays and Billy Bob’s steak house and both were very good. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

I love this place and once said I would never stay on the strip again. My wife and I come to Vegas once a year in September for our Anniversary. My mom also lives in Vegas about 1/4 mile from Sams at Stallion Mountain Country Club. This year Sams Town slots were very tight and no food coupons or comps. We did get a few dollars on our B-connect card but nothing like the years before. We are about a $2000.00 per stay gamblers and usually play alot during our stay. Not this time, the pay outs were far and few between. We had better luck at the Skyline resturant & Casino down the road.

Im not looking to win I just want to be able to play for a while.

From what I can tell visitors to Vegas are up but gambling is down and it will stay down if they keep this up. People will just come for the attractions and skip the casinos.

Any way Sams Town is still my favo place to stay but I my be looking for the free room deals and flight deals we see all the time. That may make up for the loss of coupons or comps and take the edge of of the tight slots.

Room Tip: We stay in the small suite looking at the indoor park. Very nice.
