Recent guest reviews

Love the retro vegas feel. The room was better then the pics posted on the internet. The bathroom was very stylish, better then others I have seen on the strip. The staff pleasant and helpful and easy to approach. If old school vegas is something you would like to experience, then this place is worth a visit. (I even ran into Elvis inside the mens room)

The location of the hotel is ok! The parking was very confusing at the beginning. I was given a nice room, unfortunately it wasn't clean enough, in a detailed way. the housekeepers should spend more effort in cleaning the room. I could see the dust on the edge of the room and on top of the wooden furniture.

It was a great stay at the hotel I will be staying their again it the best place too stay

nice room. small frig. safe, coffeemaker. no wifi in my room. paid 17.00 per day resort charge. too much.comfy beds. no chair or desk. more pricey rooms have more.

Thumbs up will Come back to C you guys for sure my next stay

Bigger and nicer room than i expected. I was pleasantly surprised. I stayed in one of the tower rooms, so i think those are a little bit bigger than some of the others.

Vintage hotel 🏨 but convenient location. Freemont street location and overall an un expensive place to gamble. Good restaurants around. Excellent for people on a budget.

Truly authentic. Pure Las Vegas style & comfort. Airport shuttle!

I was charged money I was told I wouldn't have to pay. resort fee.

My experience at El Cortez was phenomenal. From the moment I stepped in to the moment I left. I was given a room upgrade upon my arrival and that just made everything perfect! My room was nice and cleaned the 3 nights I stayed there. The only thing I did not like was that the two water bottles provided each day were small sized. They could have been at least regular sized water bottles. Besides that everything was perfect! I will definitely be coming back to this hotel!

The check-in and checkout process takes over 45 minutes. Two staff at the desk and 1 is stuck answering phones. Hotel lobby allows smoking which makes your room smell like a smoking room. The price you pay on Orbitz is not at all close to what you will end up paying, the hotel tax on a $15 a day fee I wish I would’ve known before booking otherwise I would have not chosen hotel. I feel that the fee represented on Orbitz Is a misrepresentation and a lie. Those cost should have been presented up front when booking. I will not stay at this hotel and I will not recommend it to anyone. Overall very dissatisfied

This is an historical venue as the oldest Casino in Las Vegas. It is just excellent, the staff are all great. Loved my time here and would certainly return here to this hotel on my next visit to Las Vegas

Very good location. Atmosphere is good and no complain

Hotel is located in down town Vegas. The price was the same at the hotel as I paid online and if you paid cash even cheaper. Rooms offered online are located in the old section of the hotel and there are no elevator access.
