Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Cordon Burgos
Stayed at Binions in early July 2004, I called and confirmed our reservations the day before for a room in the east tower, with a view. We arrived late, due to flight delays to find that they had given our room away and only had "one room left". This turned out to be a shoebox room on the older west side. The room was so small we could barely move around it, the airconditioner was so loud it sounded like a coffee grinder and our "view" was of a brick wall. I didn't sleep at all the first night as I was furious! The next morning they gave us another room. (I had to get the key) The room was better but we found the air didn't work. Again I complained. We ended up in a room on the 21st floor, with a beautiful view, and an extra bonus of a living room with balcony. This was old but clean and cool. They also comped the last two nights. So moral of story is don't be late and let them know if you are unhappy.. they will make it right!
Not bad for $39 on a Saturday night
I was in Las Vegas for 4 nights at the end of July. I stayed Saturday night at Binion's. For $43 (including taxes), it was a decent place . Even though I requested a room in the "East-side tower", I got a room in the "old" West side section. It's the old 3-story "maze"-like section, which I learned is the original section of Binion's hotel. Most rooms have no view out the window--mine was in front on Fremont St. But I faced the backside of the 4-story Binion's neon-light "wall" on Fremont st, so I had no view of anything . Oh well, it was just a cheap room on Saturday night. I arrived too late to use the roof-top pool, but the view from up there is awesome! The casino is very "sparse" looking, or you might say "spread-out"; I play mainly slots and VP but there was plenty of open space on the casino floor. I wish they would've had a better selection of slots and VP. All employees were very friendly and nice. The location is great for downtown. Room was small but clean and had everything you need--King bed, TV, small bathroom, small table with 2 chairs. Snack bars had strange hours and I didn't eat at any of the restaurants on-site. After my one night downtown, I enjoyed the rest of my time on the strip, as I got bored with downtown and ended up gambling more than I wanted to that night and morning ............downtown is definitely a better place for those who are in Vegas ONLY to gamble--I like to gamble and do other things, so I prefer the Strip.
First visit to Binions and was a little scared by the reviews from past. We stayed 7/30-31. The room was OK, old but clean. No room service, no fridges in room, no safe and in pool area only 5 lawn chairs. However, we asked if they would open the pool earlier (7am instead of 10am) and they did. All we had to do was ask. 2.95 breakfast was good but have to arrive before 7am. Did well in casino and employees were very friendly. All in all room rates worth it. Plan on returning if they are still open next year.
Saved a $ at Binon's
Stayed when it was still owned by Binon's. Good room for $60, nothing fancy, but clean, great view of Freemont street off the balcony. Maybe all the complainers should have spent $250/night over on the strip!
We stayed at the Horseshoe on June 13th and 14th of 2004 at what I thought was a good rate ($39.) If you stay above the 20th floor you get an outside balcony that you can actually sit on and enjoy the city lights. We stayed on the 21st floor on the side that looks out toward the strip and really enjoyed the lights at night. Yes, it's an older hotel but we really enjoyed the nostalgic feel of the place. The bed was comfortable and we had a non-smoking room. All in all it was a pleasant stay. We're looking forward to staying there again next month.
We were in Las Vegas on June 5th 2004 and had booked a room at the Horseshoe. We usually stay on the strip but thought we would try downtown. We arrived late in the evening and the room seemed hot--we set the temperature control at 40 degrees but the room remained at 80. The next morning we complained at the front desk and were given keys to a different room but it too was hot. A bell man brought different set of keys for another room and we thought this 3rd room was better so we packed everything and moved only to decide that the AC wasn't working there any better.
I called the 4Queens, booked a room there and we packed again and walked our luggage across the street. The room was nicer and the air conditioner worked!! So don't stay at the Horseshoe if it's hot outside.
The staff there was very nice though.
Not the Vegas experience you want!
Very cheap room so expectations were low, but tiny, dark, outdated room with torn carpeting and a cigarette burn in the blanket. Good place to store luggage but not my idea of a hotel room. Halls were an absolute maze (and dark), with overall layout not being terribly useful to anyone staying there. The coffee shop had a great prime rib dinner but if a good hotel experience is a big part of what you want your Vegas trip to be, keep looking.
Gambling, eating, sleeping ?? Binion's is as good as it gets..
Old? Hell yes it's OLD. It's a LEGENDARY House !! Gamblers' place to play? Hell yes it's THE place to play. Food? Hell yes, it's above Average and fairly priced !! I've stayed at Binion's at least 4 days each of the last 5 years. The Blackjack is as good as you find. The tables are as fast as you can get. The people are as NICE as you will ever find, anywhere in Vegas. The Dice tables are as rowdy and loud and fun-loving as you will EVER find. The food, at the deli bars or in the restaurant downstairs is as good as you will eat, anywhere in Vegas.
Binion's doesn't take a backseat to any of the fancy dan Strip casinos, if you are there for ACTION, and the gambling and the fun that goes with the people and the atmosphere. It's a smoky, dark, true to life Casino, with real people, Nice People, good players, and quality enjoyment. The 7 days I was there over Thanksgiving were as good as it has ever been and the rooms are not only Clean, but plenty spacious, with good TV, plenty of hot water, and all at a FAIR price. Once more, if you want Glitz and Glamor, hit the strip.. You want a real Gambling experience, a true casino atmosphere, an honestly fun trip and be within WALKING Distance of 11 Casinos for the change of scenery with ease, then Binions' HAS to be the place to stay. I have stayed in over 30 casinos in Las Vegas, and not one of them, from the GRAND to the Riv, Strat, Barbary, Gold, Hilton, Queens, Plaza, Nugget, Fitz, Stardust, Remo, Palace, or any other will exceed the fun, and the enjoyment of Binion's. Close proximity to the other casinos, and the canopy of Fremont street, and you just found an oasis in Vegas ----- All at Binions'.
Stayed on a busy weekend. Upon check in it was super fast the guy working elmer was super nice and even helped us later that night when we had forgot or room number. A friend of mine hit a $2000 jackpot on video poker the first 10 minutes there. The Steakhouse on the 24th floor had a AMAZING view of las vegas at night. But a tip the food it expensive for like $40 you get only a steak no potato no nothing oh bread, and it's good bread. But again if you have the money it's a awsome view. The Hotel rooms were old but not too bad at all. We had a problem with a person in the hallway sleeping which was prmoptly taken care of by security. I would proboly stay here again I like downtown and hte hotel was easy to get around. good valet service was provided and was always quick.
Squeaky stinky clean
This is an old, Stinky, motel with sqeaky beds and floors. The only redeeming value to this place is the fact that a housekeeping supervisor showed up right after we arrived to check on things (it was clean). the next morning I ask for a hair dryer (not included in the room) and it took almost 30 minutes to get it there (hair was dry by then). Carpets are all stained and they have NO, NONE, NOT ONE no smoking rooms. Even the towels smell like smoke. I am glad i did not bring a car or even rent one as I would have been scared to death to park it in this area. All in all i would not go back to this hotel and i would not recomend it.

Everyone pitched in to slice the vegetables and in no time at all and with a calm demeanor, Sally whipped up a most delicious home cooked pinakbet that was a perfect combination with fish inihaw. The dessert for the evening was Magnolia's Queso Mais ice cream.

We arrived at the airport in plenty of time for our flight, the weather is raining and about 14°c. Entering the American border control i got pulled again by security. I did not set the alarm off, just got pulled to one side and asked if i wanted a pat down or enter the body scanner, i had to stand legs apart, hands above my head.

We went to the top of the stratosphere after dinner which is open air- Nigel loved it while he clung to the edge while I took some photos. There was some crazy ride that threw you over the edge in a rollercoaster carriage. Even I wasn't going near that!

What a day-started out smoothly with an early departure from the Mather campground and a drive gradually down closer to sea level.We drove a short portion of the famous Route 66 between Williams, which looked like it had a bit of character, and Seligman that didn't consist of too much more than its interesting Main Street. It was a drive through desert, Mojave country. There were quite a lot ...
