As in the past The Nugget didn't disappoint.
Check-In - we arrived around 10am and it was quick and they were able to get us in our room right away. The rest of our party arrived an hour later and had quite a long wait.
Room - We stayed in one of the Rush Tower Junior Corner Suites and the room was huge and modern, our only major complaint was there wasn't a fridge. For $30 extra a night we could have upgraded to the same room on a higher floor with a few extra amenities, including a fridge but we decided against it. Our room did face Fremont and it was very loud, but that's to be expected in Vegas. Housekeeping was just ok, I eft a dress behind and it was never found.
The Main Pool - pretty much overun by kids and chairs were gone before it even opened for the day. We had learned this lesson last time we stayed so we opted to spend 2 days at the adults-only upstairs pool.
The Hideaway - we had reserved Cabanas months ahead of time. Our waitress the first day was awful. Very pushy, pretty much demanded that we have bottle service(which is NOT part of the cabana contract) and was overbearing. We had one of the normal cabanas and it was sufficient, while we didn't spend much time in it it was nice to get out of the sun, eat lunch(which was very good), etc. The second cabana we had was the bigger one they have and we were not fans of the set up - no privacy. You share the cabana with the bar, waitstaff and bartender, along with random patrons coming in to order drinks. Plus, our waitress was over a half-hour late. The bartender that was working that day was awesome though and he got us what we needed while we waited on the server. I would only reserve that one again if we had a group bigger than 6. Be forewarned you can ONLY get in the Hideout pool if you have a cabana/chair/sunbed and they sell out FAST. The third day we couldn't get into that pool since it was full so we headed over to the Downtown Grands pool which was a nice change and the server was a million times better than the 2 we had at the Nugget.
The Grille - excellent, sandwiches, fries, etc. I think this is where they get the food for the pool menu and it was good both days we ordered off that menu.
Vic & Anthonys - Steaks and Caprese were both awesome, sides were borderline awful. Service was just ok, I expected more.
Red Sushi - we split a couple rolls and they were fabulous for a late-night snack.
Claim Jumper - breakfast was average and rather slow.
Chocolate shop- chocoloate ice cream was tasteless.
We like the vibe of The Nugget and will stay again if the price is right. However, we'd also look into The Downtown Grand, we liked their pool and it's a block off Fremont so it'll be quieter.
