El Cortez Hotel and Casino

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was clean except for the bathroom door was Dusty and had black fingerprints on it. My only issue is that the room was already paid for and still got charged more when I got there,I don't understand why they just can't charge you everything at one time.. the extra amenities like water and phone usage and internet wasl not an option for us I was told that's what I had to pay for it and if that's true then just charge me at the same time as you charge everything else

Great hotel for the price. Super convenient location (walk a block to Fremont St). About $20 Uber to the farthest point on the strip (Mandalay Bay). All of the staff -- from check-in to maids to dealers to restaurant staff -- were very nice. We liked that the hotel was so close to Fremont but much less crowded (& less crazy). It wasn't noisy. Table games are usually $5 min (on the Strip it's $10). Had a good scent and music piped throughout. Food was great. Hotel is not fancy. The water in our sink smelled funny (thankfully the shower didn't). And the King bed was really a Queen size. But overall, we were happy with our choice!

This was an incredible vacation! I will definitely be back.

Had a wonderful time, very comfy beds. Staying again next trip!

Checked in and was put in a vintage room with no hot water. Was told they would look into it, but nothing changed. Finally had to ask for another room.

It’s a nice place to stay for a night. A little bit old but in nice shape. We arrived late and left early. So didn’t check out the other things.

The tub was very slow to drain. There was a man’s bodily secretion on the floor next to one bed. There was a long hair in the bed that could not have been ours. At check in I did not get the room I reserved. I was told that on the upside it was a quieter area of the hotel. Our neighbors were very loud. The walls are paper thin. I was very disappointed as we stayed here a few years ago and everything was clean and quiet.

Hotel was nice easy check in easy to find so close to Fremont experience and has the downtown vibe great slots too won 280 on a 1¢ slot overall great experience I'd definitely come back

The cabana suites are quiet yet just steps from Freemont Street. Will definitely come back here to stay!

From check to end our experience was excellent. We arrived a few hours early and i was expecting to pay but nope they let us check in early at No extra cost. Our room was in the cabana suits builing. Not sure why they are called suits, they are very small but it was perfect. Very large TV, comfy bed and pillows. Nice Keurig Coffee machine in the room for complementary coffee and tea! Also 2 small waters for free in the room was a plus. The rooms look newly redone and very nicely done. For the price we paid and Everything that came in that room I was beyond happy. Definitely will be staying here again soon.

Good, nice & affordable. Walking distance from Freemonth experience DTLV.

very good rate for a good hotel; it has a good restaurant. main tower is much better;

Check-in was easy. Room was clean, had a great view in a fun part of Vegas-downtown, which featured many chill bars nearby as well as Fremont Street. Price was very accommodating and the staff was kind and helpful.

no hassles easy to stay and commute there best bang for the buck in my opinion>>>

The staff was very helpful and the hotel had everything I needed in it . The room was a decent size as well !

They charged me twice for my reservation. Gave me the wrong room to top it off and they did nothing about it, i had to check out after the first night that they still charged me for even after they were the ones who messed up. I'm still waiting on my $400 refund and the $50 food voucher they gifted me and took right back when I checked out. Terrible service. Never returning to this sorry place.

We got a room on the 15th flour,with a view of the strip.The room was beautiful and comfortable.We always enjoy our stay at the El Cortez.

The room was dirty and run down. Shower was leaking and spraying on the wall where it had washed off all the paint and starting to go thru the drywall. Obviously this had been going on for a while. Very loud and had to call the front desk about people screaming and yelling it took them 20 min to get there. Overall would not recommend or stay again.

Its very close to the Fremont street just across the street and only a bus ride away from the Las Vegas strip. Bus cost only $8 for 24hours. Good stay and free parking available.

Totally worth it for the money. The room was decent the shower is outdated and rusted. No free breakfast or paid breakfast. Casino in hotel was a plus. Right on the Fremont Street experience and only 5 miles about 20 mins from the strip.
