A STAY DOWNTOWN

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 23, 2006

Away from the mega-huge casino hotels of the strip are the smaller places that have been around for many years. the prices here are cheaper and the hotels a touch less impersonal

the Golden Nugget was very comfortable, there is an expansion programme underway but we saw little or no disturbance.

Why not stay Downtown

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

I stayed at the 4* Golden Nugget in 2003 and it is considered to be the best hotel in the Downtown area. It is ideally located right on Fremont St and perfect for the evening light show. The public areas and rooms are excellent and in my opinion compare favourably to a 4/5* hotel in Europe. Great customer service and a very enjoyable stay. A spa, salon, pool and all styles of eateries complete the Golden Nugget experience. It is more expensive than some of the others close by but I would recommend it to anyone considering staying Downtown.

Unique Quality: The hotel lobby houses the Hand of Faith, allegedly the largest gold nugget on public display in the world.

Directions: Downtown, right in the Fremont Street tourist area.

I love the Golden Nugget. great hotel, great casino, and your teated well by all employees. The downside is it's more expensive than other downtown hotels, but they do offer specials all the time that help keep the cost down.

Unique Quality: Plush rooms, great pool, and a well lit clean casino. The Golden Nugget also has plenty of good resteraunts, and one of the best breakfast buffets in town. Locals go to the Nugget just for the buffet.

The Golden Nugget is definately the nicest place downtown.

Directions: Downtown on Freemont St.

I am been traveling to LV since 1968. I played golf at the Dunes, which is now the Excalibur, and at the Tropicana, which is now the MGM. I have stayed at almost every major hotel since I still visit an average of 4 times a year. My annual golf trip with all my friends is in its 24th year there. I also lived in Vegas for a year with a downtown office overlooking Freemont Street.

I recently tried the "new" Nugget after watching the television show with the new owners. I didn't feel anything different when I walked in, and the rest of the stay wasn't much different than 20 years ago. Sure, the did some upgrades and remodeling, but much of the place has stayed the same.

I didn't feel any of the excitment that the people on television felt, and was a little disppointed that time really had stood still there for the most part.

For staying downtown, it is one of the best places. And I prefer downtown for increased odds, better blackjack and great (cheesey) souvenirs. So if you are staying downtown, and don't care about being at the "top of the line" places for regulas tourists, then stay here. The coffee shop is excellent. The sports book is still way too small and always has been, although I hear they may expand.

Really good !

The Golden Nugget is a true recommendation. After Feb, 1999 I had my 2nd stay there in April, 2004 and was fully satisfied.
Clean, big rooms. Excellent Buffet.
The relatively separation between the Hotel and the Casino made it easy with kids – as we figured out (the local law of no kids in the Casino was a little bit strange for us as Europeans, a big surprise even like "no kids at the bar").
All over all an excellent value for the money.

Excellent Experience

Stayed 3 nights at the Golden Nugget April 15-18, 2004. The room was not only nice but clean as well. The view was lacking but what can you expect for $49 a night. The staff was not only accomodating but friendly, and they allowed us to check in early (4 hours early). This was the first time I have ever stayed somewhere that when there was a "please do not disturb" sign on the door they actually left you alone. Unlike the housekeeping at the Venetian who almost took the door off of the hinges while attempting to gain access. They (Venetian housekeeping) decided their job was more important than their guests relaxation. Not to mention I spent $300 more a night for their room. (Although it was beautiful, it could never be worth that kind of money). I will continue to stay at the Golden Nugget because you walk out the door and you are on Freemont which was fun. (BTW, Stay away from the Girls of Glitter Gulch, the girls there are rejects from the other Las Vegas strip clubs. AWFUL! But they were nice, I guess) (Save your money for Sapphire's!

Unique Quality: The Golden Nugget was exceptional from the scent of the massive flower arrangements to the sweet smiles on the staff faces. I received many "Hello's" and thank you for staying with us. It was all and all a great experience. By the way, many people *** and moan about the sour faces that greet them when they are guests at a hotel. I am a bartender and it is amazing what please thank you and a smile will get you. Sometimes people reflect your attitude. To those people my suggestion is smile and say thank you and have patience. It's just a common courtesy.

Directions: On Freemont, downtown las vegas.

A Downtown Oasis

The Nugget is not only the best hotel downtown; it may have the best customer service in all of Las Vegas. I do gamble some (I'm not quite a high roller--yet), but I am always treated like a queen at this hotel! The dealers are super-friendly, and the rooms are nice (the best ones are in the North Tower). You will feel like you are staying at a great hotel on the Strip, but at half the price.

Unique Quality: The pool is beautiful and clean, but smaller than the ones on the strip. Some rooms have great views. The casino lounge has a nightly show, and the Carson Street Cafe serves the best grilled cheese I've ever had!

Directions: Downtown, in the middle of Fremont Street.

GOLDEN NUGGET LAS...

by written on September 12, 2002

GOLDEN NUGGET LAS VEGAS

Downtown Las Vegas is generally a place of broken dreams,
shabby casinos and the folks who cannot afford the 'Strip'
experience. So what is the Golden Nugget doing down here?

The Golden Nugget is one of the nicest casinos in Las
Vegas. Marble floors, fresh flowers, and well-heeled
gamblers are all here in abundance. While the surrounding
neighborhood is far from appealing, the Nugget itself is
nice.


The Golden Nugget is a top-rate but basic casino. Here you
won't see lots of flash, just lots of serious gambling. The
flashiest attraction here (besides it being a refuge from
the bums who plague downtown Vegas) is a monster gold
nugget on display.

Best bet: Not walking off the hotel grounds for safety
reasons.

Directions:

Four Queens, Fremont, Horseshoe and Golden Nugget
