Nice place to stay for a short while
The Palace Station is a beautiful hotel on the outside and in. I had one of the garden rooms which is a discount room. It was ok for a discount room and I hope next time to stay in a tower room. But it has a wonder buffet and alot of different type of games to play. It also has free shuttle buses to different locations like the Fashion Show Mall. I like the Palace station and would stay again.
Good place for a short stay
I booked a room for two nights using one of the discount web sites and was satisfied with the Tower room I stayed in. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. I ate at the Broiler Room (very good) and the buffet for breakfast (okay, nothing special). I think the Palace Station is a good mid range hotel, and (for the price I paid) a great value.
I've made two trips to Vegas this past year. The first was a boys-out trip where we stayed mid-Strip at Treasure Island. Fine.
Trip two, though, was with my family and Palace Station ended up being part of a cheap package deal I got through a travel website (not this one).
Let me tell you, Palace Station was great! We just had the basic Courtyard rooms, but they were fine -- we stay in Atlantic City regularly and these rooms are on-par with Boardwalk rooms we sometimes get.
The fact that Palace Station was just off-Strip made it better than the high-priced Strip hotels (having a rental car, like we did, is highly suggested, though). Not only did we save money, but Palace Station was much more laid back, had affordable family dining and great employees. The Strip can get crowded and pricy.
There's sports betting and a heated pool and hot tub, too. We were swimming outside on Christmas!
I found no faults with this experience -- just good. A clean, solid, standup establishment -- and it's very easy to find.
I've been to five gambling towns and about 10 casino hotels, and this experience at Palace Station tops the bunch.
Best food in Vegas.
We stayed at Palace Station last November. The hotel does not give out much to the guests and the rooms are average. The best thing about Palace Station was the Mexican restaurant and the Sunday brunch. It was awesome.
It has not changed
This is to confirm the 3/20/2002 reviewer's comments. We stayed at the Palace Station several years ago. We were confirmed for a tower room; however, when we arrived we were placed in a room next to the 24-hour garbage compacter. We had the same experience as the 3/20/2002 reviewer. All requests for a different room were ignored.
They did give us free drinks for the length of our stay (3 days) and we managed to obtain a partial refund later; however, it was a terrible experience.
We vowed to never return to the Palace Station or any of their other hotels and to voice our experience to anyone considering a visit to Las Vegas.
This hotel is an exception, we have had positive hotel experiences during all of our other trips (approximately 100) to Las Vegas.
Could have been fantastic
I stayed at the Palace Station on Sahara Boulivard. What a great place.When I got there I could not believe how wonderful the hotel was. Rooms were large and clean, fantastic views,fast elevators. Great room service.What a shame that the people at the front desk were very rude, unfriendly, hated doing thier jobs. When I arived I was so exited, it was my first trip to Las Vegas, what a letdown when I went to check in and treated as though they hated my guts. The bell desk wasn't much better. When I visited the other hotels I was treated like a king even though I wasn't staying in thier hotel. I can't waite to go back to LV but the Palace Station won't get my money. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions
Don't stay there if you want to get a good night's sleep
On March 18th myself and two co-workers checked into the palace station casino the night before a very important business meeting with the hopes of getting a good night's rest. We decided to do this instead of making the 2 1/2 hr drive the following morning. To our dispair we were given two rooms directly outside the casino's 24 hour loading dock and garbage compactor. We were subjected to a night filled with tractor trailer trucks and delivery trucks backing up and unloading all sorts of items. Not to mention the hotel's own employees making enough racket that surely even the dead could not rest. Even after several appeals throughout the night, not a thing was done by the hotel's management staff to ensure that we'd obtain even a somewhat decent night's sleep. We chose to give up early that morning and checkout, assuming that the hotel upon hearing our story of the previous night, would do something to satisfy us as far as our bill was concerned. To our surprise we were told that the only thing they could do was remove the $1.00 phone activation charge for phones we had not used other than to complain to that very hotel. It is the opinion of our group that this hotel mearly exists to promote it's gambling establishment. The concerns of it's hotel guests mean absolutely nothing. We are recommending that our company, which is one of the largest in this country, seek other lodging for meetings held in the Las Vegas area and we are certainly passing this information along to our friends and family as well. If rudeness and uncaring is what you seek in a hotel, Palace Station in Las Vegas, Nevada is the place for you.
The Place off the Stip to Sleep & Eat!
We have stayed at Palace Station twice & will return for our third time next month. When traveling with persons new to Vegas on the Strip is the place to be, but traveling just the two of us Palace Station meets our needs much better. You can park in either of 2 covered garages & without walking (or rolling in a wheelchair) for what seems like miles, you can be in the Main Lobby & go to the elevators up to the Tower rooms without going through the Casino. The Prime Rib & T-Bone nights at the Feast Gourmet Buffet are fantastic. The Buffet is superb, with not quite as many exotic dishes as Rio's & Luxors, or quite as large as Excalibur's, but full of more variety, good service and scrumptious deserts then one knows what to do with. Also the Iron Horse Cafe, opened 24 hours gives faster service than any other Cafe we have eaten in in Vegas, with food so good we ate most our meals there last trip. Service was friendly, Rooms were large and clean, Room Service was prompt. The strip was a 5 minute drive for those with rental cars, and a free shuttle away for those without.
Palace Station Oyster Bar
My family visits Las Vegas about twice a year, and one restaurant we always visit is the Oyster Bar. The Bar is semi circular, with appx 20-22 seats. The food is outstanding, and is cooked in front of you in stainless steel pots. I recommend the Seafood Gumbo or the Linguini w/ white clam sauce. The cost is well above 'Buffet' prices, but well worth it. To keep the cost down, you can share, and still have plenty of food. This is a 'locals' casino, but not to be missed on any visit. Be sure to enjoy the slots while you wait or after you eat. Enjoy.
Dear Sir: My brothers and I traveled to Las Vegas in November (9th I believe) and we stayed at the Flamingo Hilton Hotel, but I am here to tell you that there are places in Las Vegas suited to my needs that are much better, Palace Station being one of them. Mr. Alan Dubester made our visit to Palace Station so accomodating that I cannot resist the urge to tell someone in management about the people at your establishment. We were personaly greeted by your staff, I believe the first contact we had was your dooorman/driver by the name of Fred. He was so polite and accommodating I was lifted to a level of high roller, but I am not. The feeling was fantistic for someone who is just an average player to be up there with the big boys. After our great ride to the Hotel with were greeted by Alan Dubester and I thought he was our personal valet. He saw to it that we had everything we needed.
This letter probably leads to the fact that I and my family and friends will be staying at the Palace Station Hotel from now on. I just recently diverted 6 people from Treasure Island to Palace Station through Alan. I am sure that they were treated as well as we were.
If you choose to post this on your web site I urge any and all persons to contact Palace Station Casino and Resort (this is coming from a 2 times a year visitor) in order to make your stay in Sin City a great one.
Thanks again to all your staff for a great visit.
P.S. I just saw your rating system below. I would actually rate your establishment as a 7.

... so langsam überwunden zu haben. Anders sind die unglaublichen Bauvorhaben wohl nicht zu erklären. Am Zuspruch der spiel-, sex- und trinkwütigen Besucher wird es wohl nie scheitern, denn die Stadt platzt selbst unter der Woche aus allen Nähten und der ein oder andere wird sicherlich ein wenig Geld am Tisch liegen lassen und letztendlich wie del Toro auf den einzig nach Superlativen strebenden Moloch in Nevadas Wüste fluchen. Unterm Strich zählt nur eins: What happens in Vegas, stays in ...
