Golden Gate Hotel and Casino

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I loved the age of hotel, the location and the overall vibe at the casino. The only thing I would say negative would be the construction work going on which I know is out of their control.

It had a unique, old-world charm. The location is right in the middle of the action on Fremont St.

The Place is a dump and I would not recommend it to anyone..Staff was unprofessional.

It was awful ! We had 2 rooms and one room wasn't ready at 5pm and the rooms were on different floors and both were right above a live band that played until 2am. NEVER AGAIN!!!

The Golden Gate Hotel was right on Friedmont as suspected, but the room over looked the street and the room was right next to a speaker. We were told the the music would stop at 1:00am. It didn't stop until 2:00am and started up again at 6:00am. If this was not enough there is major construction right across the street the went 24 hrs a day. We were not told anything about this and when I complained the next morning I was told, "That is not on our property therefore it is not our responsibility to tell you anything about it." If I could give a negative star on a 5 star rating I would!

it was old but the main problem was that the rooms especially the bathroom was very small

This is the dirtiest hotel I have seen in Vegas. Very small room, mostly unpleasant staff and the complaints about the shower temperatures are all true! Generally when I read reviews, I ignore the really high ratings and the very low ratings because some people you just can't please and others are probably friends or relatives of management or paid reviews. The room was filthy! Between the headboard and wall there were about 2 inches of dust bunnies. Not a single corner of that room had seen a vacuum in YEARS! Dust everywhere, terrible cleaning of the bathroom as well. It was downright disgusting. Had to take pictures because I doubted anybody would ever believe this. This amount of dirt and dust doesn't mean there was one day of someone not doing their job. This means the entire cleaning staff has been neglecting thorough cleaning for years! We stayed the first night, and the next morning booked a room at Four Queens. Didn't bother checking out until our last day there because we had paid for it and I'm sure wouldn't get a refund. It was worth the money to just go stay somewhere else. Anywhere else!

Super small dark room. Not very clean. Taking a shower was miserable. Couldn’t regulate the water temperature. It was either ice cold or scalding hot

Hair in the bed, no AC, sweat all night, room had no view...its opened up to 3 walls!!! Dead bird was between 3 walls and window. 2 power outlets, 1 worked. An acutual extension cord ran on the ground Hotel staff didnt change room upon request. Worst hotel ive literally EVER been to. Ever.

I liked the hotel but the room was too warm and got stuffy due to no adjustment of air conditioning

Whatever you do ..... pay UP for a suite ! If you get a room on the freemont experience side .... forget about getting any sleep till after 2am. They have a bands that play on a stage less then 20 yards from your window , till 2am! The suites were excellent though and I slept like a baby once I upgraded my room to a suite .

Nice hotel. The room was small and the walls were a tad thin, but we only spent enough time in the room for sleeping; and we were so exhausted it didn’t matter if the bands hadn’t stopped playing yet. The bed was comfy, room clean, staff friendly, and overall we enjoyed our stay here.

Would have been nicer if it had a chair and a fridge.

Dear Monica, Your recent stay was truly not the norm for our property and we hope that you allow us the opportunity to impress you. Most of our rooms with double beds and some standard rooms are located on Fremont Street. We recommend to place any room requests in advance away from the noise and we will try our best to accommodate.

Dear Guest, I apologize that the noise was a nuisance during your stay. We do try an inform our guests as best we can that the Fremont side of our hotel can be quite a noisy. Additionally, whenever we have the availability we love working with our guests to change rooms that better fit there needs during their stay. I could not agree more that the response you received is completely counter to the experience our staff should be providing to our guest(s). I can certainly empathize with the fact that you did not have a comfortable stay. If you are willing to give us another chance I would appreciate you reach out to me personally when you next intend to come to Las Vegas.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. We have kept the historic charm from when the hotel was built in 1906. We do have larger rooms and suites that may be more to your liking. When you are in the area please visit us again soon.

Dear Guest, I appreciate that you have brought this to our attention. As many previous reviews show we are aware of the things that need updating but I agree one should always expect cleanliness in the rooms they pay to sleep in. I would really like to show you that this is far from our standard and if ever you would allow us to host you for a visit again I would like you to reach out to me personally.
