Silverton Hotel and Casino
Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
This day started with Alec and I Having the notorious Vegas chat of what the hell happened last night!
I went down to breakfast with the girls to the buffet where we attempted to piece together the night and Loz made the confession of knee dislocation. Michelle then received a phone call from a very concerned Tom requesting Santi to pick them up from golf as Alec had basically been sick all morning and he didn't think he would last a taxi ride.
... the strip and sight see. We looked at a lot of tourist shops and headed into the coke store. Its amazing that they have this huge coke factory and most shops only sell pepsi. What i would do for a coke right now and i don't even drink fizzy drinks. Nicole is going into withdrawal i think. Shame.
MGM was our first casino stop and we had a nice walk around so everyone could see the hotel. The boys were quick to ...
... to come up on stage. Robby went up. There were about 20 something. He said he was going to use about 8 but he needed to weed out some of the people. He explained out hypnosis worked and that some were easier to hypnotize than others. He went through some relaxation words, soothing music and some commands. Robby was on the front row and one of the first ones asked to go back to his seat.
He kept 8. He asked them to do different commands. Told them that when he shook ...
... and a quick look at the Swatch shop. Rosie picked up a watch from there. While walking around Caesars the watch flew off as the clapse broke – guess that’s a trip back to the shop! Caesars is a massive shopping mall / Casino / Hotel. We found the Cheesecake Factory (as Penny from the Big Bang Theory waitresses at) where we had lunch. The lunch was good but we took a slice of Lindas Chocolate Cake which is extra awesome.
Further down we went through ...
... longer....good one! After Freddie, we walked to PROJECT and walked up ABD down the aisles.this section was mostly denim, surf and active. We went to the Dickies booth and Bobby recapped what was going on with HO and Dickies . This concluded our appts for the day and we walked outside to board the TI shuttle. Next time though,it would be faster to get on the Venetian/Palazzo shuttle,as we had to stop at the Trump Hotel before it took us to TI.. Got upstairs and ...

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.
Great time, once again..
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.
Silverton: Ok for the price
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.
We got to our room and decided to check out our view since that's the first thing we always do. I'm very extremely disappointed with our view. It's of a freaking brick wall! The wall is for the new Bass Fishing/Outdoor world that they are building next door. Now, I wouldn't complain if we were paying a "lowered-your view sucks" rate, but we paid the same rate as rooms with views...parking lot, highway or pool.
But the rooms are remodeled and pretty nice. The bed was comfy and they use good bath products (BIO from Body Works). Oh, but they only gave us 2 towels, 2 hand clothes and 2 wash clothes, so we had to get more each day.
Everything else was fine.
Silverton, a bargain?
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.
Nice time for the price!
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.
