Overall, the Nugget is a decent place to stay considering that Pahrump is pretty limited. It is a lot nicer than the Saddle West, and comparable to the Best Western.
The rooms are clean, but the layout was cramped and uncomfortable for two people. There were 3 small drawers and a very small closet area for clothing, so we had to use our suitcases for dressers. No full length mirror. There was a mirror above the sink in the bathroom, but the lighting was so dim, it was hard to apply makeup. I wish they would have put the sink and vanity outside of the bathroom instead of next to the toilet. It would make it a lot more functional for two people! Housekeepers were friendly and did a good job.
Now to dining and entertainment: They have a bowling alley, which was fun. Buffet was OK. The sandwich shop was convenient and good. The steakhouse is very good. However, there is so much cigarette smoke in the casino, it is unbearable, and the smoke permeates into the restaurants, hallways,and even the non-smoking rooms. The casino is nice (other than the smoke) and has a good selection of machines and tables. Dealers are very friendly and attentive. However, the drink service while you are gambling leaves much to be desired. You can be at a craps table for an hour before you get a drink. They do have a very good band that plays on weekends.
The biggest drawback is that they do not have a swimming pool or any type of grounds area whatsoever. I really do not understand why someone would build a hotel in the middle of the desert and not put in a pool! At least the other two hotels in town have pools and nice outdoor areas to sit and relax and get away from the smoke.
