“Great value for the buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

For $15 you can have a buffet of prime rib dinner with shrimps on a Saturday night. This is the cheapest in town. The value is exceptional.The beef stew was very tasty. I was also surprise how good the lobster ravioli taste. Unfortunately the coffee was terrible. Otherwise I would give it a 5 star rating. If you use the Member Reward card, you will have a dollar off the $15.

Main Street Station does not aspire to be a Strip hotel... which is a good thing! It's a downtown hotel / casino looking for the smaller-stakes gamblers. I'm a video poker player with about $4000/day coin-in.. and they offer me rooms for 2-3 nights per month.

My stays over the past few years have all been what I expected.. a clean, low-frills room.

Biggest complaint: I wish the shower heads were higher in the bathroom.

I suspect the hotel will be ready for some upgrades in the next 2-3 years. But I have no issues with staying here today.

We enjoyed our room, 2 minute walk to Freemont street... Rooms where small but very clean, the hotel has a great restaurant, great micro brewery. I will go back for sure.
The trip to Las Vegas before we went in for lunch and asked to see the rooms, the bell service man showed us two rooms... We knew we would try it, so we did.
The people at the front desk where very friendly and helpful with questions. right a cross the street was the California hotel that is connected, great Prime Rib dinner and cheap there..

We were in L.V. a week and I lost count how many times we ate meals here at the buffet.
For the price you cannot get any better. Breakfast: The best pastries, meat variety...well just about anything you could want.
Lunch & Dinner: there is so much to choose from but my best meal was the night they served Braised Ox Tails. Where can you find Ox Tails on a buffet? Really. They were just like my mom used to make. Yum. T-Bone steak night was wonderful, as were the 2 different nights of pork chops. They always cook it a bit different. Choose any meal and you won't be disappointed.
Large dining area, clean, friendly, fast.
We did not stay at this hotel. We stayed at Excalibur and never did eat there....oops

We have enjoyed the 1896-era ambience of Mainstreet combined with the truly superb long-time staff. Along with being clean, inexpensive, having good food and a great location with adjecent parking it is the complete package. We have been staying here for over twenty years.

Been to Vegas now close to 40 times and for many years did not come down to Fremont area, but past few years spend half my time on most trips here and enjoy it a lot. Main Street is great. Good value and beautiful casino with many historic items from many places around the world. Ask desk for the history so u can see where many things came from. Great 777 brewery and restaurant, and also excellent buffet. Near the buffet is one of the nicest looking bars where u can play video poker I've ever seen. Hotel rates are very reasonable, fridge in room, no resort fees, and 2 blocks to Fremont st. I could care less for the Fremont st experience which I know many people like but love old school vegas, easy access to many casinos, the mob museum, neon museum, etc

I read some reviews of this buffet and they were mostly positive about the buffet... but we had an entirely different experience. We stayed last week in Vegas and decided to try out a buffet one night and this was the one. They definitely had a lot of choices I will give them that. I did not see that everything was fresh though. The flavor was fairly bland on most items and the taco meat was really unrecognizable. With that said, they have excellent mashed potatoes and the server who picked up the plates was very friendly and did a great job. I did not dislike the place but it definitely could use some improvements with their food quality. The room itself is very nice.
