Silverton Hotel and Casino
Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
... I have been travellers for years as a couple - for me since I was in diapers and we have both come to the same conclusion: people are fascinating. Fascinating to talk to, fascinating to confirm time and again that values, circumstances and life experiences are pretty universal - it's only geography that separates us all. There are very few places we have gone where we haven't met at least one person who stood out. This trip has been no exception ...
... serious damage on our food babies! Midnight burgers, loco moco and ox-tail soup rounded out our meals at the Orleans, so no shortage of good food!
We went down to the Strip one day, as Mom was treating us to brunch at the swish Monte Carlo, a delicious buffet! Then we took the tram to the Bellagio Hotel, which had a beautiful Chinese New Year display in the conservatory, celebrating the in-coming Year of the Horse ...
... seat belts and bar with complimentary drinks. There were also several TV screens and radios, and dazzling lights everywhere which changed colours as we drove on. The tinted windows were so flash, but all I could think about was how Mick would park it at Karori pool, a factor he takes into account when purchasing any sort of car. That is something to think about!
I will leave you with that dilemma to ponder, and will be back tonight with more.
... as he had heard us talking in German. We had another round of shots and tried to play a little poker on a machine :-) After that we decided to call it a night, but the guy was already pretty drnk and insisted on accompanying us to our hotel (clearly hoping for more). We made it clear that we wanted to go to sleep, but he came with us anyway. So we just left him in front of our hotel door, a bit confused and disappointed ;)
The next morning we woke up just in time ...
... go way up the more games you pick, and if I hit the 7-game pick I’ll get $430. The really cool thing, is that I picked a variety of games in each bet, sometimes betting the opposite teams, just to give myself plenty of chances to still be interested in watching the games. If I picked the same teams in all the bets, and one of the first ones lost, then I’d be out on all my bets. And I wouldn’t care as much about the outcome of the games. Except for my fantasy ...

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.
