      Freemont Street experience n your doorstep

      A great spot to stay if you want to be in the middle of all the action of the "OLD VEGAS". Step out the door to experience the Freemont Street experience! Rooms were excellent and staff friendly and very helpful. Our 5 and 8 year old loved the water slide through the shark tank.

      Our only complaint-no free wifi!!! That is crazy! Hotel, pool, and restaurants are great, but no free coffee in room and a $12.99 per device fee for wifi! We were going to spring for it for the room until we called and they said it was per device!! Grotto was amazing-especially the desserts.

      Nice Hotel/Casino of the main strip

      Reviewed Jul 13, 2012
      by (10 reviews) Melbourne , Australia Flag of Australia

      Hotel is fine although a little older than the new big casinos. Also this casino is downtown and not on the famous strip so a little away from the main action although that may suit some people. The only real complaint I have is that there was no fridge in the room and wifi was a paid option in the room.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Nugget Hotel Las Vegas

      Never again!


      I was truly looking forward to my stay at Golden Nugget. This was our fourth stay in Vegas and I wanted to try staying downtown once. The second night we were there I was awoken by dripping water that was landing all over my clothes in the suitcase! It was water leaking from the roof! It was 5am. I called the front desk and they sent someone to our room to check it out. They gave us NO explaination, but did offer to send our clothes in for drycleaning. When I went to check out of the hotel, they tried to charge ME for the drycleaning! I was furious! The snotty front desk clerk called the manager who told him that I did NOT have to pay. Thank goodness. Overall, I did not think that this place was a 5 star hotel. I am not by any means picky, I travel with the military all over the world and stay at much worse places, but normally the service is better! Who cares that the place is clean and neat, if the staff is horrible to you! Never again!



      We have been staying at the Golden Nugget twice every year for the last give years, while the reservations staff at the hotel has always been less than friendly (with very long waits) the room is clean and the security is great. This trip for some reason the water smelled like sulfar (did they change their well or something?) so the bathroom smelled horribly.We reserved the room with a deal from Private Arrangement giving us our last night free. We could have reserved using a promotion from their website at a slightly more expensive rate but decided to go with the Private Arrangement. After checking out, they said they had no record of the last night free and made us pay despite telling them that we were confirmed for the last night free. They charged us full price, not even offering the website promotion. We contacted Private Arrangement, no one would honor the reservation. We could have reserved in the beginning with the internet promotion for a better rate.The fact that we stay there twice a year every year simply did not matter to them. Customer service is not important to the Golden Nugget. We will never be staying there again. If you stay there, be sure to get your room rates in writing (copy it in triplicate) before checking in so that you do not have any surprises. And, take extra freshner for the bathroom. ;-)

      Let down


      The front desk staff on arriving were very nice, as well as the staff in the restaurants. Zax restaurant was WONDERFUL! But!!! the casino bartenders and dealers were VERY RUDE. The cocktail waitresses were non-existent. We stayed for four days and spent little time in the casino. Had more fun at the Fremont casino. It's a shame because it's a beautiful hotel. We will not stay downtown again.

      Love this place!!


      Wonderful Hotel, super friendly desk staff. The MOST COMFORTABLE bed I have ever slept in, wish I had it at home!Room was gorgeous, beautiful furnishings. Right in the middle of all the Freemont St action, yet so quiet in the room. What more can I say, I will only stay at the Golden Nugget when in Vegas.

      Absolutely the Greatest


      I stay at the Nugget two or three times a year and have for the past 7 years. NEVER had a bad stay. Fabulous in March for Final Four. A little crowded at the sports book though. Fantastic bars; great restaurants; $5 tables earlier in the day. If you have never stayed downtown, you don't know what you are missing. You'll love the Fremont Street Experience!

      One of the BEST


      I travel to Vegas quite a lot for business, and quite often for pleasure, and I have stayed at most of the Strip hotels. More often than not I stay at the Golden Nugget. Why? It's one of the best hotels in town (Mobil and AAA 4 Star/Diamond). It's much easier to get around town from the Nugget than it is from the Strip and the hotel is much smaller than most strip hotels. Valet parking is steps away from check-in. The North tower room elevators are steps away from check-in. The casino is steps away from the elevators. The rooms are beautiful. The food in Carson St. is terrific, and the buffet is excellent. The dealers, waitresses, pit staff, and dealers are all nice to deal with. Since it's downtown, you can also find $5 tables, which have disappeard on the strip. My wife loves it and I love it. We've never had a bad stay at the Golden Nugget. It's absolutely the hidden treasure of Las Vegas.

      Disenchanted Visitor


      I would never recommend this hotel as they do not stand up to their so called reputation. I requested for non-smoking room 8 months in advance, upon checking in even after I confirmed the status I was not given a non-smoking room. Their food service was "terrible" no variety, same type of food service every day for 7 days stay. Front-desk agent was very rude and not very helpful even knowing that I was not happy. Did not even try to help"fix" the problem. Such a shame for a 4 star hotel. I would give them a 1 star at best.

      Golden girl


      A grand old girl in the downtown area. top hotel on freemont by a long shot. great staff, food, and rooms. gambling not quite as good as the casinos across the street but at least clean and not to smokey. good pool with misters to keep cool. the coffee shop, Carson st cafe, is one of the best in the whole city, renowned for price and portions. will be staying there again for sure!

      Always great


      The hotel's best feature is the main lobby - there are no slot machines, it's beautifully decorated, and the personnel who staff it provide excellent service. Once you step beyond that, the rest of the hotel and casino is consistently the same. The other great feature is the location of the self-parking garage. You don't have to hike for fifteen minutes or more just to go to your car. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

      A complete vacation experience under one roof!


      Why spend vacatation time traveling from destination to destination? The Golden Nugget has everything you need for a total vacation experience under its roof! They have their own hotel casino, a wonderful spa in which I pampered myself daily, excellent restaurants and a beautiful swimming pool. If shopping is your thing, they have a gift shop in the hotel as well. If you do feel the need to see the lights, they are right on the old strip and the light show is marvelous! Just stroll out of the door and there you are! The accommodations were very reasonable and I found the facilities just as aesthetically pleasing as many of the higher priced "up-scale" hotels and casinos.

      Okay my title is not original but neither is Vegas.

      It's glitzy, it's crazy, it's commercial and I'm now insanely jealous of anyone who says they are going there because I know just how fun it is.

      I stayed here for 2 nights as part of the tour I was on and as we approached Vegas we cranked up the stereo with Vegas related hits (it …

      We went to the Downtown strip the night we arrived. This area has the original casinos. Walking into Fremont Street, you come to the Heart Attack Grill. This diner has been on many television shows. It serves a burger and butter shake that has the most calories in the world. The waitress is dressed in nurses costumes. Also people over 350 lbs eat …

      On our last full day in Vegas we again met up with Charlie and Jasmine, who as you might recall had spent the week-end at an electronic music festival hosted at a speedway 45 minutes out of town. Speedway it was, one death in total, acceptable for Vegas because hey, the event attracted thousands of people with a whole lotta money ready to burn. …

      Today, we did not get as early a start because we were not traveling as far. But what was not that far distance-wise was an eternity duration-wise.

      Within a little more than an hour we crossed into the Nevada border. Weather
      was delightful and a cloud - free day.

      Our first of 3 fuel stops was in Wells, NV. At that point it …
