Historical Traveler Reviews Somerset House Motel Las Vegas
I'm really not picky and I don't need a luxury hotel to enjoy myself on vacation, but this motel was really awful. It urgently needs to get renovated. I admit it was clean, but then again, everything was so old (the bathroom etc) and therefore gross. I didn't feel comfortable at all. We paid $70 for the night, which was good for Labor Day weekend. I guess it's a good place if you really don't care about how the place looks like. In the future, I think I rather pay a little more and have a decent hotel.
The Somerset was a great deal for the price, it has definetely seen better days, but it was clean and neat. The pool was great although it could use some new chairs. The rooms were large and the airconditioning worked. nice little kitchen and comfortable beds. What more do you need? The strip was a mere five minute walk. It was quiet and definitely a great deal, would stay there again anytime.
Outstanding Value for Money
In my opinion the Somerset offers outstanding value for money, especially if you stay 7 days or more. If, like me, you want a clean hotel room to sleep and relax in but don't want to pay for extras or a view then this is the one. The front desk is open 24 hours and I found the staff friendly and helpful. Admittedly the motel rooms are not decorated in a modern style and the TV reception is limited to around 4-6 channels but the room was huge and had an en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, a kitchennette and was very spacious, all for around $230 dollars per week including tax. I live in the UK and at current exchange rates thats less than ?20 per night. Try to book anywhere in New York City for under ?60 a night. Finally the Strip and any ammenity you could reasonably expect are just a ten minute walk away. A jewell in the crown of Las Vegas for the budget conscious traveller like me.
If you want to be very close to the Strip and want something better than Motel 6 and Travelodge. This is your place. It is an older 60's "Jetsons" style hotel that is unique, clean, w/a nice kitchenette. Best bang for your buck in my opinion...Phil
Not that great
I did not think this hotel was that great. The lobby smelled like an ashtray to begin with. It was all I could do to hold my breath while checking in and then out. The rooms were OK, but could use some remodeling. The TV only received about 5/6 channels and only two came in really good. I've been in other Vegas hotels where they get 30 channels clearly. The good thing about the hotel is that they offer a weekly rate, considering most people who visit Vegas are there for a week and most hotels on the Strip only offer Sunday to Thursday rates and go up a lot on Fri and Sat. But still I would recommend you go across the street to the Greek Isles Hotel or over to Blair House Suites before I would recommend this hotel.
Great price...for the budget traveler
The Somerset is the best deal in town. All the other places are all decked out and fancy but the somerset is nice and quiet and in walking distance to everything you need in Vegas. :-) Why pay $400.00 a night for a room when you can pay way less at somerset and use the extra money to have a great time in Vegas...Thumbs up here....Plan on staying for New Years....2004..
Not too bad for the price
This place has definitely seen better days, a long time ago. The hallways had a very strong, strange odor. The bathroom sink was clogged, but at least there was another sink in the fully equipped kitchen. The room was large with dated furnishigs, but clean. The thing I liked best about the room was the great view of the famous "Stardust" sign. The motel is within easy walking distance of the Strip.
Nightmare at Somerset
It was about 3 or 4 a.m. we were sleeping and all the sudden heard the door pop open. We looked up and a guy we've never seen before popped his head into the room. Before we got a chance to say anything to get up he disappeared. We felt like we were going to be robbed. The staff at the Somerset acted like they didn't care when we told them, they just blew it off like nothing. I will never stay there again.
Take your money and stay elsewhere!!
Great stay at Somerset House
The room was huge with 2 queen beds and a kitchen. Its been a couple years since I stayed there but would stay again. Room was clean and the maids were friendly. Easy to come and go and just a few steps from the bus stop.
Good times at the somerset
Great location and loved the kitchenettes. Great for families. Look forward to returning soon.

... decided that my brothers were clearly bad news. It did eventually get us there despite never actually getting out of second gear (surprised Neil's car doesn't have the same problem). During the journey I also found out from Neil that Dave didn't bother to fill out the immigration form on the plane leading to further delays before "case gate". His reason was sound of course. He couldn't quite pluck up the courage to ask the stewardess for a pen. Now seems timely to inform or ...
... Yosemite was fantastic! There are a lot of really great hikes ranging from easy (basically flat, paved) to strenuous (mostly natural ground tracks, very steep in places) and at many different lengths. We did quite a few in our 4 days there, and for me the standout was definitely the hike up past Verana and Nevada Falls. This track is rated strenuous and definitely got the heart rate going in places, but the views ...
Our tour guide was a tall, white haired, chain-smoking man named Larry. He had the most comically drab voice which was both equal parts amusing and annoying. And did he talk the majority of the trip? Oh yes he did. I sat alongside my Hubs and we nestled in for about an 8 hour ride. We learned about the desert climate. We learned about the Nevada real estate market, we learned about Boulder City and the Hoover Dam, we learned about Route ...
... that she was selling to us as a "hot car" and the car that we had booked as “something that just makes a buzzing noise!” We, of course, being on a budget, had opted for the cheapo option, but actually the upgrade price was practically nothing as the Jeep had in built GPS, whereas the cheap one did not, so we would have to hire that as well….well, that’s our excuse and we are sticking to it anyway! Our Jeep is pretty plush we have to say, with more ...
... the bed#5star. I had a bath in the giant bathroom and Jack skyped his parents. Then I skyped my parents. Had a nap for 2.5hrs until 6pm. Got ready for our night out in Vegas and went down to eat at ‘Buffet’. Had to queue for an hour! Cost $50 each for all you can eat but the food was excellent (kobe beef etc). By the time we had finished eating it was 9pm and we were both sober and full (not a good start!) A random guy stopped us and put our names on the hotel's club ...
