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.

... photos cannot capture the beauty. Another wonderful site and so different from what we have already.seen, it is a pity we did not have more time to walk down into the canyon. Apparently the rain and snow is constantly eroding the sandstone so it changes all the time. We then went through Zion National Park. We stopped several times for photo shoots. Again such a different landscape.....beautiful scenery. After stopping for lunch back at St ...
... must weal a hospital gown to eat and one other catch, if you don't finish your meal the nurses (waitresses) paddle you in front of the restaurant. We didn't think too much about that, but were careful to order what we thought we could eat (the largest burger has 8 patties with bacon and is just under 10,000 calories. Margaret and Cindy ordered single burgers (which were huge) and Steve and I ordered the half pound hot dogs. Those dogs were huge and I ...
... and according to Dad and Sue who have been to Vegas a few times, is a good one to see. As we approached it we could see a replica Arc de Triumph and the iconic Eiffel Tower towering over the main casino with a giant Parisian balloon for good measure. Once inside we were walking along cobbled streets with authentic French cafes and restaurants. It really was like we had been transported to Europe for the night!
... to relax for a few hours.
In the evening we got tickets to see Cirque Du Soleil – Zarkana at the Aria. It was such an incredible show with amazing acrobatic and high flying tricks. After the show we got a quick dinner and wandered back to the hotel where we tested our luck on the casino floor before heading home for a well needed ...
... 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 ...
