Silverton Hotel and Casino
Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
... our hotel has a Venice-like theme, it is really luxurious and has 36 floors. It is beautiful. It has gondolas and shops, even a square with a band playing and everything. I loved it. At dusk we had dinner at a really fancy restaurant and super delicious.
Day two was not the best. In the morning I did five hours of French.
Here's what happened: When we were going to ...
After a simple breakfast, and wearing sturdy footwear, we used the connecting walkway to enter the Bellagio Hotel. This is a sprawling hotel but clearly still one of the elite hotels in LV. We walked through the ornate decor and out onto Las Vegas Boulevard (the strip), and were surprised how even at 10am the temperature was in the high 90's F. We saw the famous fountain spectacle ...
... photo which we decided to buy, along with some poker chip magnets. We grabbed our shuttle bus passes and headed back to Las Vegas. We were delayed on the way back due to a funeral procession, shutting down the freeway we were on, a police rescue officer had died after rescuing a child, he somehow slipped out of his safety harness in the helicopter and fell to his death. Along the route was a huge US flag supported by the ladders of two fire trucks. Back at our hotel, the time now ...

Got back around 7:30 and met Chris for dinner in the Venetian. Then we went around the themed shops and indoor canal with gondola. Quite amazing! Dean not keen on a serenaded gondola ride, but still buzzing from helicopter ride so that's good.
Not a late night still tired from 1am emergency wake up last ...
... to watch an unusual 'show' outside a hotel where they simulate a volcano erupting and shoot mock molten lava into the air. It was incredibly busy and I was sweating under my cowboy hat.
It was great to see it all and be an observer - it was the perfect evening and all I really wanted from Vegas.
I felt so grateful again to connect with the Kalani 'Ohana!

Historical Traveler Reviews Silverton Hotel and Casino Las Vegas
Great place to stay
Great place to stay if you want to be close to the strip and save some money! The rooms have been referb'd and are very nice. The casino has been expanded and they have free shuttles to the airport & Tropicana. The connected Bass Pro Shop is very nice. Check it out. They usually have a good sale going on their clothing.
Food is OK.
If you are looking for an inexpensive place to stay that is convenient, this is it! Been there three times in the past 6months. Would recommend it!
Enjoyed the Silverton
Stayed here on business March 7&8 2005. On previous visits to Las Vegas I usually had stayed at one of the many Casino/hotels on the Strip, but this trip I opted to try the Silverton. I was not disappointed. From the staff at check in/check out, casino, resturants, fitness center,pool area, housekeeping, etc., was better than most of the "higher priced" places I haved stayed at on the Strip. Room very clean and spacious. I would recommend the facility to all planning a visit to Sin City. Only recommendation to the Silverton I would offer is to make the parking lot directly in front of the main entrance for hotel guests only, as a matter of convenience to guests who opt not to utilize the valet parking.
Nice Hotel but lacking customer service!
I stayed at the Silverton 1/7/05 - 1/9/05 for the CES show. The hotel was very nice and clean. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were a very good size. My only complaint is that I was not informed that the steak house and all of the bars would be closed to paying hotel guests that Friday night. I had to take a taxi to another hotel to have dinner and drinks with important business clients. I had told many clients about how nice the Silverton was only to made to look like an -------- when we couldn't get neither a drink or a meal. Nice comfortable hotel but bad execution on the service.
Great place to stay
As mentioned before , the Silverton is by al means no 4 or 5 star resort.
But its a pretty good place to stay, after the complete remodeling of the place and new Bas Pro shop its a decend upscale property.
The rooms are good in size and their beds are the same as Bellagio verry comfortable.
The restaurants are above par.The Buffet is not that good, but what can you expect for 6 or 7 dollar.
I always love to stay here when in Vegas, they are generous with comps and they give away a reasonable amount of free nights in a year.
I did do the Venetian and Ceasars thing but I am not willing to pay USD 350,00 for a room where you barely in.
I am sure you will not be dissapointed, when booking this hotel.
We spent 1 nite in April, and decided to stay 3 nites in Sept 2004 on a return trip. I've stayed at the swanky strip hotels, had the big suites at Caesars,Aladdin, etc. For the $$ and atmosphere you can't beat Silverton. It's so easy to get in your car and move around Vegas from there. You can get to your room in no time from your car! I am impressed with the food, both quality and quantity, in the steakhouse and the Grill. And I actually win $$ on their slots! The staff is so nice, what can I say? OK, so it's not the Bellagio, but I had a great bed, clean room and spent $15 a night and living in Wyoming I enjoy the little western theme. I'm a hotel snob and I can't find anything wrong with the place except the bathrooms are small. Want a big tub? Pay $200 a night and stay at Caesars.
We stayed 3 nts at the Silverton July 23-26. We got checked in after midnight on the 23rd thanks to flight delays, but I was some what grateful after seeing the reception desk. They are renovating the interior and exterior of the Silverton and the front desk/gift shop are all one counter, 2 computers for check in/check out. The staff at the reception was super nice.
I have been staying at the Silverton for approximately 8 years. In fact, it was named "Boomttown".Unfortunately, Silverton has become victimized by the need to modernize and eliminate all the great deal meal places. The fabulous breakfast buffet and Café have been eliminated and replaced with a modern decor conscious Café. The food remains a constant "average", but the ambiance of "yester-year" is gone. The service at the restaurant is poor. If it wasn't for the shirt sleeves of the Executive Chef, I'm affraid the Café would sink into the depths of the Café hell. Frankly, if there existed competition within a reasonable distance, the Silverton Café would certainly be a ghost town.The rooms have been refurbished in favor of a designer conscious color scheme with prints and mirrors to match, very nicely [ableit inexpensively]remodeled. However, the 19" television in a cabinet that would easily handle at 27" is evidence that you're in a "bargain hotel" and not the "vogue hotel" which the owners are so despearately trying to convey.The Hotel in general is currently [November 2003] undergoing major renovation. In fact, I was awaken with large vibrating machinery before 8:00 a.m. In conclusion, for a bargain price, Silverton presents the consumer with an avarage experience.
We stayed at the Silverton for a weekend. Although it is miles off of the strip, they do a good job of keeping their guests happy by providing a tram to the strip (tropicana, mandalay bay, etc.) so that you don't have to pay 20 bucks for a cab ride there! Also, I thought the bathrooms were a little small, but the room itself was fine. We never encountered a 25% increase for a refurbished room. The pool is open 24/7 which is nice when you want to take a late night dip and room service is much cheaper than any other hotel that I have ever visited (in the U.S. and out). I didn't try the buffet, but the cafe/restaurant downstairs was a really great breakfast! Their casino is also a little small, but, it didn't really matter because they had enough slots for everyone and enough tables too!
Silverton - Buyer Beware
They advertise on their website that they have refurbished rooms. They do have quite a few refurbished rooms, but Silverton doesn't advertise the fact that a refurbished room with a new bed and new carpet is an upgrade of 25% more per night. Had I known it was actually 25% more for a room with a bed that isn't 10 years old I might have chosen to stay somewhere else. Aside from this bait and switch scam, the new rooms are fine and the hotel is nice and quite and only a short drive to Belz outlet mall.Don't eat at the buffet though. The food is worse there than Circus Circus, and that's a hard thing to do. If you stay there either eat at the coffee shop which is decent or just go out for your meals.I recommend the Orleans, Green Valley Ranch or The Palms for food.
Friendly, affordable but bad location
The Silterton is cheap [especially with coupons] and clean. I have stayed here several times for the CES show. From the exterior it looks like a dump, but it really isn't.
They have a small casino at which point you recognize the dealers/bartenders every night.
My biggest gripe about the Silverton is the location. It is far from The Strip and west of I-15. The only places you can walk to are a Taco Bell and the truck stop across the street. If you dont mind driving [or cabs], the Silverton is a real bargain in Vegas.
