Recent guest reviews

better than i expected definitely will stay ther again great atmosphere If you like old-school Vegas this is it I don't know if I bring the kids here though Why would you bring kids to Vegas anyway??

It was actually reallly clean. Staff got us in to our room before 12

The rooms were amazing, they were remodeled and brand new

The tower closed for two days due to a major plumbing issue and we were relocated to the pavilion rooms. They took care of our needs.

Never got room I needed I reserved a double bed smoke room because that's what I wanted and expected was told i was getting upgrade never told why otherwise I would have never checked in go to my room notice signs saying non smoking so go back to. Lady front she said it was what i reserved so thinking I made the mistake I go back and look to see if I did wrong I didn't showed her so she immediately called front desk all to find out they had no more smoking rooms checked out like 4 am got there 11pm night before very unsatisfatified with them had they tried to let me know up front would of been a diffrent story

Good: Free parking, large clean room, security, price. Not Good: Registration took over 45 min (I had to call Orbitz and have them fax the confirmation), front desk staff condescending, pay for everything in room (even self brew coffee). May recommend this hotel to others.

WARNING: NOISY, CANNOT SHUT OUT THE NOISE! this is a place for drug addicts etc.. or as the front desk said : " it's mostly locals staying here" I would have slept in my car, but parking lot is just as noisy. Cannot open windows.. years of vomit and carpet fresh create an unforgettable ambiance.. need I say more?

It was a inexpensive hotel for a last minute get away. No where near 5 star but wasn't a disgusting either. Liked that the rooms were only accessible by key card made it feel safer.

The hotel staff was very welcoming. The room was comfortable and spacious and perfectly located in the downtown area.

Maids came in room when asked not to. Hotel tried to double charge us!

Staff was nice, room was clean, free parking was great,

Ok but rooms are nit soundproof enough (due to being in the mix of the Fremont Experience). LOUD IN THE ROOM FROM THE PARTYING ON FREMONT.

The El Cortez Hotel has many good options. The restaurant is excellent and the people and staff are friendly and helpful. The facility, however, is older and has some functional obsolescense. The price, however, is reasonable. I will stay there again. D

Front desk staff is really rude he put me in a room that smell really bad and old and told me if I want to get another room it will be $20 not accommodating at all and when he was saying that he was smiling

The hotel is old and it's alright. We had good time.

Hotel access to our room was safe the key of our room works together with the elevator and only stop on floor that you are located.

Great hotel, great location. Staff is always friendly. Only place I stay when going to vegas

Was in Las Vegas for a concert across the street. Lots of excellent bars and restaurants nearby. Didn't miss the strip one bit! Lack of eating options at hotel annoying, but minor issue.

The new rooms. "Cabana Suite" is so small. The greet is super super duper rude. I decided to switch room back to the regular El Cortez rooms. Much bigger in size but not clean.

I thought the El Cortez was a charming hotel. I loved the atmosphere. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The food at Siegels 1941 was very good. I loved the prime rib. I had a great blackjack dealer named Bennett. I will definitely stay at this hotel for all my visits to Las Vegas.
