Can beat their price for a holiday getaway! Best part, one can step right out into Freemont Experience.

Excellent prices, good food, no need to exhaust yourself looking for FOOD. It will be pretty pricey everywhere.

Great Downtown experience

Las Vegas downtown was a totally different experience than the Strip, and El Cortez was a key ingredient for that. Playing with real coins, old-style, has its own charm. And its walking distance to all downtown attractions.

don't judge by the cover

More than worth the price one of the more comfortable beds I slept in on the road.

Wedding Anniversary

We had a room on the 14th floor with a view of the strip,witch is fantastic at night. The room was large,and the chairs were big enough for a big person like me to sit in.

Good for a cheap stay

We spent very little on this room and got much more in some ways than other rooms in vegas. Coffee machine, complementary waters, and fridge in the room were key. Comfy beds, clean room, dark curtains, good A/C. However, the wireless internet was spotty at best, which was annoying, and the minimum cost to use and print something from their internet kiosk was $2.

Wonderful retro Cabana Suites

Downtown LV is really becoming a hip place again, a most refreshing change from the Strip and the El Cortez is the granddaddy of them all. The Cabana Suites offer comfortable and easily accessible suites with huge plasma TV's, fridges, in room coffee etc. all with a retro Art Deco motif. Fresh fruit available in the nice common area w/TV and pleasant staff - all in the heart of the re-emerging downtown adjacent to Container Park (free live music and/or movies each night in a grassy area surrounded by restaurants and cafes. Great choice.

Perfect wayside stop while traveling

Needed an inexpensive stopover on a long motorcycle trip. Fit the bill perfectly! Clean comfortable room, (I'm 6'10" and the bed fit!) Easy to get to, free attached hotel parking. One block over from the "Freemont Experience" (Had never seen it before!) Friendly staff, reasonable restaurants. Will definitely stay here in the future.
