El Cortez Hotel history vs Glitz

Would recommend Fri, Jul 16, 2010
We live 1.5 hours away so we come to LasVegas often. This is first time in 'old ' strip. And we will never stay any place else. Although the casinos are older and smaller, it was easier to get around and the crowds we not there. Enjoyed the low cost of the room, and was up-graded at no extra cost. I will take historic over glitz all day long.

Nightlife hint

Fremont experience at night cheap and comfortable

Cheap, no big complaints here

Would recommend Thu, Jul 15, 2010
I would recommend this place to friends, you can't beat how cheap It was for four nights. We had a tower room on the 15th floor we had the best view and even a personal patio. Yhe bathrooms are a bit dated so I only showered. It's true check in can be slow and the bar tenders are rude and really strict on making sure you bet 3 to get those free drinks but all in all it's on the corner from the freemont experience and I felt safe for the price.

Great for the Money

Would recommend Thu, Jul 15, 2010
Since the remodel, the rooms are great, especially the central AC. It could have had a mini fridge. Only 3 drawbacks were we requested a smoking room and got nonsmoking, there was no elevator to the room we stayed in, was only 1 floor up, but with luggage was a bear, and when checking in we had to have a $50 holding fee on our debit card until we checked out. This can take 2 weeks to get funds back on the card and nowhere did it state this charge. Besides that it was a great location, quiet rooms and a very comfortable casino.

Nightlife hint

Freemont experience is only a block away.

Best Value in Vegas

Would recommend Tue, Jul 13, 2010
WOW !! From check in to Check out was awesome! When we first looked at our room -- WoW, what a deal ! The hotel is totally remodeled, clean, safe, quiet --probably the best value in Vegas.Close to Fremont Street Experience, great strip views, nice people and the feeling of safety was every where. We ate at Tony Romas one night and our waiter said the best steaks in town are at the El Cortez- He was correct ! We will return and most definitely tell all our friends!

Dining

The Porterhouse steak was one of the best I ever enjoyed. The fajitas, is a meal for two. The Cafe Cortez was one of the best dining in Vegas. Trust me, we tried out a dozen different places.

Good Value !

Would recommend Tue, Jul 13, 2010
I have been staying here for years. Like the location and the parking is easy access and a short walk to your room. Other downtown hotels have a "hike" from your car to room.

Would do it over again.

Would not recommend Tue, Jul 13, 2010
The room was very clean. Staff was friendly. However, the rooms next door to the left and right had visitors who were smoking (hemp). The smell kept us up and we didn't feel safe.

Money saver

Check the room location and the neighboring guest.

Charge for every little thing

Would not recommend Mon, Jul 12, 2010
good location - nice that they had a shuttle back to the airport. However, the charge for the internet was way too high - $12.00 a day is ridiculous. They would have gotten more of my money in the casino if I did not have to go away from the hotel for a couple of hours a day to do work without paying an exhorbitant charge for internet. And, I got sick the last couple of days. Went and bought jello - the restaurant would not give me a spoon - even a plastic one (and I had eaten in the restaurant for several meals). Then, I left my phone charge in the room and discovered it was gone after i had left. They found it but they were going to charge me a minimum of $20.00 to mail it to me - that's excessive. I was even willing to send them the postage-paid envelope. I will probably stay elsewhere next time (other two times I stayed in Vegas I had free wireless).

Stay in Vegas for 4th of July 2010

Would recommend Sun, Jul 11, 2010
The hotel is great for the price. This was my second time staying there within a month. The first time I was there I needed a room to attend a funeral and this time I choose to stay for the 4th of July. The rooms are nice and the beds are comfortable. The a/c's work wonderfully. I love that they give you a funbook which gives you $5 toward food, $5 toward gambling ( that was great for me to play and learn because I don't gamble), a free drink amongst other cool things in the book. I would stay at the hotel again if I it came down to it. The hotel is ok. Though I would say a lot of smoking and the smell is throughout the hotel. But I could deal with that for the price.
