We've been several times as locals - love the rooms , pool & hot tub : decor - location on Fremont Staff is awesome and I feel like I'm back in time - love the retro feel - we recommend GN to all our friends . The club upstairs is fun & great view Overall my favorite
The pool was nice. The room was nice and clean. Shark tank and slide were inoperable. Not to mention the jack hammering going on was really loud. The sink to our room was clogged.
Love the gem of old Las Vegas. I always stay at the golden nugget at least one night when I come to vegas. The pool rocks and the shark tank is awesome! There's another cool aquarium in Chart House inside the hotel that the kids will like! Love the big bathtubs in the rooms! I stayed in Gold Tower! Will definitely be back.
Great location No outlets to charge phones, laptop... Also the towels smelled as if they were sour, like if they weren't put into the dryer fast enough. The sink had a terrible smell coming out of the drain, the restroom constantly smelled bad.
Affordable & comfy beds Water pressure wasn't great & tub/shower faucets needed to be replaced b
The staff was very nice and gave us a complementary upgrade on the room. Room was very clean. The line for check in and out was long. Lack of technology for the express check out. The room has a slightly cigar odor.
Used to be a good value. Prices are high for what you get now. Not clean..
Hotel overall was great. To much construction going on..ammenities not all available.
Clean Reservation was messed-up. I reserved a room with two double beds but they had me in a king room. When I asked for the double room they said I have to pay extra. Room was noisy. When I asked to be moved, I was told they cannot move me but they will give me complimentary ear plugs. I thought they were joking, but they assured me they were not. I went to eat at their fancy steakhouse and after an hour was told to hurry up and finish because my table is needed for the next party. On Friday night music from the nightclub below was so loud that the windows were rattling. I called the front desk a was offered earplugs…complimentary of course. I didn't sleep all night. When I checked out I asked for a paid in full receipt. I was told they can't give me a receipt because I booked it on Kayak which is a 3rd party. I will never stay there again.
The rooms were clean, the staff was very helpful and the atmosphere was upbeat. Pretty much the basics that all hotels should have. Beyond that, what we liked most is that anything you could want for entertainment was within a short walking distance outside of the hotel. This was our first stay in downtown after having spent the past two decades always getting a room on the strip. When you stay at one of the big casinos, you're pretty much beholden to whatever they have to offer unless you are prepared to go on a long walk. At the Golden Nugget, the front door literally drops you right on Fremont, with multiple other casino doors about 100 feet away. Throw in a number of bars, eateries and sidewalk performers and you'll find it very easy to be entertained. If you want specialty bars, a short walk to the end of the Fremont light canopy will drop you at a row of neon lit bars, taking you back in time to old Vegas. Maybe it's because I'm older, but after experiencing downtown, I don't feel the draw to the strip, which seems more targeted towards younger club goers, people who like to show off in VIP sections, cover charges, over-priced drinks, trying to walk amongst impatient drivers as you constantly cross over streets and casino entrances, etc. But hey, there's a little something for everyone in Vegas. If you want to stay in downtown, the Nugget is definitely a great place. We also walked to Du-Par's at the Gold Gate next door for breakfast. Again, another perk of everything being within a short walk. Nothing comes to mind.
Great location. Shark tank is under construction at this time but pool is open.
The location is the only positive When we checked in and got to our room the ac didn't work and either did the lamp. While we were waiting for maintenance we found a bunch of trash and dirty towels in our room. They moved us into a room which was better. By the time we woke up in the morning we were woken up by water running out of he ceiling like a river. When we called to inform them they said thanks for letting us know. Took a lot of arguing to even get my resort fee back which I paid for in cash but come to find out they charged my card for it anyways. Every time I had to deal with the front desk they were rude and not very helpful. they charged my card for a resort fee even though it was in cash and were rude every step of the way. I would never ever stay here again.
Nice pool area and friendly staff. When I arrived, there were dirty towels and linens left on the counter in the bathroom. Furthermore, the toilet had not been flushed, much less cleaned (there was still feces in it). Midway through my stay, the television stopped working. Disappointing.
Revitalized downtown area of Las Vegas. Excellent location near Mob Museum and Fremont Street; one mile to Neon Museum (retired Las Vegas signs). $5 craps tables, sports book, live music, multiple bars, 3rd floor roof pool, very good restaurant. Good overall value. Comfortable bed, spacious room and clean. Courteous, friendly staff. I don't like hard, overstuffed pillows for sleep. Ask for soft and flat at check in as they have them available.
I liked everything about it! In fact we talked about it being are regular spot when we go to Vegas! It's close and the hotel can help you with a lot! Warning you can hear music from Fremont street but it stops at 3am! They provide ear plugs but I did not need them and did not mind!
Our visit to Las Vegas was for travel/tourism so we only used the room to sleep. It was very clean and well maintained, would highly recommend based on that. No opinion on the resturants or casino as we didn't use. The other amenities available looked wonderful and well maintained. I have and will recommend the Downtown Grand to anyone going to Vegas but not wanting to be on the strip. The only negative would be the noise from Freemont Street. However, during our stay the bands were playing '80's music and we were fine with that, it acually helped us fall asleep.
Great location for The Fremont Experiance the long walk from the lobby to the rooms in the tower.
Needs a coffee shop
The AC was perfect! Everything was extremely clean. Food was great. Service was friendly. Casino was not too busy but still had all the good games with an awesome rewards card too. Honestly hardly wanted to leave the hotel. Those pillows are not comfortable at all. The drinks were not very strong - but hey, they were free. Can't complain too much.
Nice view from the 24th floor. "included breakfast" was only for 2 people event though we reserved a room for 3... and really basic breakfast in a 5 x 5 meters room separate from the main restaurant. Bad water pressure in shower, poorly designed bathrooms. The complementary parking is across the street. Its a 10 minute walk from the parking lot to the room.
Staff was friendly and attentive. We stayed here a few months ago after terrible night at The D hotel. Not that I'm retired with more time to come here, we thought it might be our new regular spot. Not anymore. Way too noisy because of Freemont band noise. Ear plugs, really. No coffee in room. Plastic cups for in room; really no glassware? Maid service skipped our room. I called housekeeping and was told staff were gone. I asked if we could at least get new towels. After sometime a woman delivered them but to my disappointment when I went into bath the old dirty towels were still sitting on the floor. Very disappointing and do not plan to return. Will go back in search of our new loyal spot.
They allowed me to switch to a room on the otherside that was not as loud. staff was great. room was clean my first room was way too loud as I was on the Street side where the stage was set up and the music did not stop till 3 AM. The elevator never went to the ground floor even during business hours. and when I reserved the room there was no mention of resort fees as there were for other rooms, this could be an issue with AMOMA leaving this out, however I had to pay resort fees of 19.95 a night when I checked out which I was told is now 23.05 a night. I have stayed a the Golden Nugget and never had a noise issue, the reason I chose the grand over the nugget was because there was supposedly no resort fee. Also I have used Kayak several times in the past and have been able to cancel my room a few days before but could not with this reservation made with AMOMA via Kayak. Also Could not get a late check out
Location, very clean and value for money! Next to smoking room
I like that it is walking distance close to Old Vegas. The showers at the pool level were being repaired. The main cafe was being remodeled. after calling ahead to add a guest name and tell them I wes arriving late, I got checked into a room I needed to move out of the next morning. The voucher cashing machine was not working. I was there 2 nights and it should have been easier.
Location on Fremont Street was good. Easy access to everything. Room was acceptable, nothing elaborate. Bathroom was nicest. There was not an in room coffee maker which was a huge disappointment for me. No microwave or refrigerator. Actually, thinking back there was not a chair or table either which most rooms do have. It was clean enough but not white glove clean. Elevators worked fine.
The room was clean. The basics were provided. Bathroom was very nice. We were on the 18th floor. No noise problems. No elevator problems. Enjoyed everything. Loved the Longbar is a lot of fun.0888`
Best thing about the d is the location, there is so much to do in walking distance. The room was nice and the staff was friendly. I didnt like the shower layout. Other then that it was a great time.
Check in was quick. We had 4people in line before us, we were done in about 8 minutes. The elevators were excellent.Type your floor number and the kiosk tells which elevator to go to. No buffet at this hotel. The cafe was OK. Ask for a room away from the Ceremony Street show noise.
Room was clean Close to action Value Self parking was closed and valet to 35 min to get car in am Almost missed our tee time
No amenities, yet you are charged a $22 a night "resort fee". Don't think about sleeping, you won't be able to. And don't forget, wifi not included, you have to pay for it. Worst hotel I've ever stayed at in Vegas.
The hotel rooms are old but renovated. Comfortable beds and clean rooms. Casino is nice with decently priced games. Second time staying at the D. The staff working at the front desk were very rude upon our arrival and couldn't get us two rooms on the same floor. Housekeeping had to be called to make up our room the next afternoon and they didn't even change the sheets. The bathroom door in our room was also very squeaky. Not a great experience compared to our first time at the D.
Good variety of games.
Clean rooms Comfy Beds Powerful Shower head noise from Fremont below but if you turn on the ac unit to constant mode it draws out the noise Resort fee $22.60 plus a $100 fully refundable deposit
I booked this hotel without knowing it had a Detroit theme! Being from the Motor City and staying here after a 2 week vacation, it was super fun to see American Coney Island and Zingermans! The room was very cozy and modern, and the view from the 32nd floor was amazing! We got in late with our 5 year old, so it wasn't very kid friendly, but that's Vegas! The noise, which I'd seen in other reviews, was definitely present but again, were not in the wilderness or at a serene beach resort.
Free valet service while the parking garage is being renovated, friendly staff, clean rooms with a modern decor, and really comfortable beds!!
I loved the theme of the casino and it was very close to everything. The elevators took a very long time due to maintenance
The location is perfect. The elevators were among the slowest I have ever seen.
Remodeled rooms Hotel was under staff, 1 person to check in, 1 bellmen, 3 elevators not working, food in cafe waa cold. They need to hire more people.
Price Front desk representatives Room smells nasty Unfortunately all night water leaks inside in my room from tap floor. My last time too purchase online hotel room, I'm check in 00:45 after 30min. Waiting time check out 9:15 am. I'm sleeping totally 2hr.
The hotel was pretty far off the Las Vegas strip, it was at least a 15 min car ride from there. The rooms were okay, not the cleanest rooms i have seen but good enough to spend the night. Seems like a good option to save a couple of bucks but at the end of the day, take it from me, if you are going to visit Las Vegas and be close to everything, look elsewhere, the crowd was a bit older and not the atmosphere that i was expecting, not that i was looking for a crazy party atmosphere, but it was kind of dead.
The staff was courteous, the hotel is conveniently located. The room was clean. Housekeeping didn't bother us at all. When we had an issue the front desk was wonderful about addressing it. The casino was one of the less hectic ones, lots of food and convenience options around. Glad that they actually had a first aid kit and sewing kit available in their store. There were two outlets in the room and one of them didn't work at all, the one by the desk. There was also a problem with the boiler that caused the hot water to be effected on our first day there, we couldn't shower until after noon. The beds are below average in comfort and will leave you stiff. Probably bring extra padding if you have back problems.
I liked the how friendly the staff were. The valet worked out awesome for me as I flew there to pick up my new 'stang. Every time we called the front desk everyone was incredibly friendly and nice. I wish there was a mini fridge in the room. I figured that was standard nowadays but apparently not. I would definitely stay there again. First time staying in that section of Vegas. I loved how tall the bathroom counters were. For me it was the perfect height. No fridge in room was our major downside. One outlet by window did not work and there was limited bathroom counter space.
Very helpful stall. Left my cell phone there and Lost and Found were on the ball found it. Very please on the attention.
The rooms were a bit modern and in the downtown area. It smelled like smoke which I won't take my family too. The rooms are dark so for business it's a bit hard to do work in the room on the computer. As its so dim and barely light.
We really enjoyed the stay in Plaza, and the location is great to visit the Freemont Experience. Be aware that there are 2 towers, and one is newer than the other. I would make sure to choose the newer one to ensure you get a better room. Maybe it's a bit far from the strip (you will need to take a taxi/uber)
It smells so bad !!!!! All casinos stick like smoke ... this is so much worse ... I had to brace myself every time I came back in the door ....I will not stay here again
They charged me two times - for resort fee 22/ per day. And as well hotel fee 30 per day !!!
Are family enjoyed the Palace Casino and Hotel. It was a second time we stayed there and we will be back because the hotel staff was so friendly. Also we like the grand Café the food is good in the waitstaff is always Nice. Also the prices right so we like to eat their grand Café nothing better I didn't like the fact that two elevators were out of order. That's all I can think of that would be that they offer all the things anybody could ask or even a free shuttle to the airport so my complaint is very minimal indeed.
Hotel was accommodating to our needs when getaroom booked our reservations incorrectly. The staff was very nice and eager to help. Initially booked a 3 person reservation non smoking. The getaroom people booked for 2 so we had to exchange our king for 2 queens which they didn't have at the time of check in except for a room in a construction floor that was smoking. The ac unit rattled all night too. The next day the hotel was able to move us thankfully and we got a good nights rest.
Casino Our room was not clean when we got up to our room. We weren't offered any discount or anything for this mistake. Poor customer service.
The people were friendly and polite and accommodating the room was to small and the air system was poor.
The hotel was situated in a great place which had easy access to bus routes to the strip. The bedrooms were clean and we were given towels and any other necessities we needed. We had to pay for wifi (24 hours at a time) not having their on pool, but there was access to another pool which was okay.
Location was great right in the middle of Freemont st The beds were worn out
Nice, clean rooms! Wonderfully friendly staff! Walk right outside to the Freemont St Experience. If you are low in the hotel or on the Freemont side, you will hear the noise till the bands quit playing.
Maid staff not that great. Coffee shop in hotel good value.
Large hotel, seemed inexpensive Had my room over the Freemont concert stage, music was really loud until well past midnight
Great downtown location. Great price. Restaurant had good food. Room was really smokey, live bands made it hard to sleep in evening when I tried to sleep around 1am. Poor shower head with no water pressure.
Front seat staff was friendly First day these the elevator in the parking lot wasn't working, had to use the stairs. The room smelled old and the music coming from Freemont street wouldn't let me sleep. Once the curtains were moved to look outside we found a McDonalds hash brown wrapper and pieces of has brown underneath giving us the impression that the room wasn't properly clean.
This hotel was terrible Loud location, music doesn't stop till 2am, small dingy dirty room, hotel over charged for stay, rude staff, worst hotel I have ever stayed at.
valet workers were nice... but practically mandatory to use valet because there is no free parking loud band playing outside fremont street and no sound insulation no free parking, $3 an hour fee, cheaper to use valet ac sucks, on max ac, it couldn't cool the room
The pictures of the rooms you are shown are the newly renovated rooms. The problem is not all of the rooms are renovated at this time. We had a room that smelled musty and one they would have been ashamed to put a picture of online.
We stayed facing Fremont street, it was a little noisy.
The employees were all very pleasant. Once I paid for the room (and resort fee online) when checking in I am told about a $100.00 deposit that will be refunded upon checkout. When I check out I see Another $21.00 fee (Resort Fee) All and all we ended up having to pay almost $64.00 for that $20.00 room. The bathroom was so small the door hit the toilet, when I went to hang my towel on the hook on the back of the door it slipped and fell in the toilet. There are bands playing in the blocked off area on Freemont till at least 3am and it blared into our room. The food in the restaurant was outrageously priced for the tiny and outdated cafe. $11.00 for a hamburger and that was about the cheapest thing on there menu. I will never go back and will tell everyone I know how bad it was!
Convenient Cozy Nice decor Friendly staff Floor in bathroom substandard Seemed not clean Maybe needs remodel Also freebie chips rip off Not usable on all tables and $25 each too high to really play Reasonably Suggest lower denominations
I was looking for a cheap place to sleep, but when I checked in, I was charged a $22 resort fee. The total was still less than $60, but it would be nice to have known about this fee ahead of time.
Too much noise from outside...rooms too small
Location Staff rude rooms terrible not clean its more like a motel with gambling
The location was good , The room they gave not my standed, morning notice the hand basin blocked , washroom door hiting the toilet unit , ok for thin people, shower low pressure , no table to seat and eat , very noisy, request for room change , denied , $64+ 22.60 resort fee,
BEWARE!!! Upon check-in I was advised that I needed to make a $100 security deposit. When I checked out the next morning I was charged an additional $22 for a resort fee. The room was old, small and noisy. But what can you expect for what was supposed to be a $42 room charge (plus $22).
A couple of the staff....Evening reception that gave us a comp b/c our room hadn't been cleaned after two calls to the front desk and the Maintenance guy...Scott...who repaired the heater, and the security guy that helped us open the safe that was stuck. Valet guys were friendly. The location is good. No hot water in late afternoon and evening. Reception told me that during afternoon and evening, I needed to run the shower for 20 minutes before the hot water would show up. They were close...18 minutes. Seems like a huge waste of water. Bathroom smaller than the backseat of my car. Room noisy starting late in the evening. Heater didn't seem to work. I had many contacts with staff to help me solve a problem, repair something, or give further instruction or how things worked, which I've not had in other hotels. My wife and I stayed here as a less expensive alternative to the Golden Nugget, where we usually stay because I were here for a conference and we'll be coming back in April. Not a good choice. Will never stay here again. Ever.
Nothing The room was too small, there where no curtains on the window just wooden shutters, the room was very hot in the morning, but at nights its was freezing. The bathroom was horrible, it was very small! I dont recommend this hotel to anyone!
Low nightly rates. Convenience to the attractions. Free valet parking at Fremont. No self parking at Fremont. Free self parking at California Hotel. Get the voucher at Fremont but present it to California for a refund of any fee paid at California. No Resort Fee. Depending on the resort reservation, you can even get a $10 voucher towards the restaurants, etc. We reserved a "2 double/1 King room" and ended up with the 1King bed. There's 4 of us (2 adults + 2 teens). Front desk gave us a foldabed for free. For the price? No complaints on the older room and austere bathroom (e.g., shower head about eye level of a 5'8" person). $9.99 wifi per day per device. If you have 2 devices (ipad, iphone with limited data plan, etc), you pay $20 per day. ---> Resort fee of $20 per day would be better when it includes wifi for any number of devices. Website only indicated "wifi". I think this racket is even worse than the resort fee, which, at least is shown in the reservation page of travel websites. The payable wifi for our stay was not shown anywhere in our reservation details. We reserved through a website called Amoma, which was one of the sites referred to by Kayak I did not bother to check if they have a swimming pool. I think they don't.
Location Front desk very unorganized and under staffed, slow
The hotel room is very cheap. The bathroom was small and disgusting. Very out dated. The only up to date thing in the room was the T.V. Also plumbing was bad as well. Took water forever to drain out of the sink and tub. Would not recommend.
Room was next to strip way to noisy
No pool and "non" smoking rooms still smelled very much like cigarette smoke.
Our room was facing the west we could not hear the bands on fremont st. the room was plain bed was old but clean. No frills but good enough for us. They were kind enough to let is check in on a friday at 1 pm which was great after long flight. toilet over flowed onto floor. window did not open in smoking room.
Great value, clean rooms and clean organized casino floor. Bathroom a little small but well stock with towels
Freemont street experience location. Buffett was very good. Valet parking worked well for us. NO RESORT FEE!! No pool - and the California hotel pool that Fremont shares with was closed. Older hotel. . .
good location if you like the freemont experience affordable valet parking is nice our room was ransacked while we were out! reported to security, no response at all. there is no swimming pool :( loud, duh its the freemont experience but yes LOUD in your room. air-conditioner loud and didnt work very well to cool the room. no wifi! what?!! yes true. guess they want you out gambling instead. no coffee no fridge in room, guess they want you out of room...
Convience Tony Romas restaurant. They offer steak and lobster for $11.99 from 9:00 - 11:00pm. We went to eat at10:20 and were told that the wait was too long. I waited all night to have that dinner. Although the manager was nice enough trying to explain the situation I was not happy that we were not offered some sort of comp.
The bed Hotel registration is to slow. Restaurant is over priced. You can clearly hear outside noise inside your hotel room which makes it difficult to sleep. I would suggest another hotel to stay at.
I love the California hotel, whenever I visit Vegas it's my little slice of home (Hawaii). If you're from the islands the California is a pretty comfortable place to be. They have a variety of food choices, and a lot of things I can't normally get on the mainland. The gambling is fun, the people are nice, and overall I think it's a great hotel. The majority of the crowd is rather old so if you're looking for something more modern or trendy than you would probably be better off somewhere on the strip. There was no microwave or coffee maker. I was kind of surprised by no coffee maker. I think curtains vs slats would be better for the window shades.
Price & location Mold on ceiling
location was very good ,quieter yet close to fremont street . staff were friendly and helpful . breakfast buffet was good deal rooms are a bit dated but comfortable . charged for Wifi ten dollars a day seemed a bit much.
Great location! Delicious Hawaiian restaurants!
Quiet yet close to everything . A great value and being partnered with Main St casino made it very nice . Just a short walk and Main Street Casino is where you will find a value priced buffet for all your meals at a reasonable price . You could walk out the east door and walk across the street into Binons casino or walk a block to the Freemont Experience . Very nice location and easy to find anything in downtown .
I enjoyed the restaurants and the all around service. The valet and front desk personnel should smile more and remember that you need good personal skills in their field. All in all their service was good.
Rooms are always clean and comfortable. My wife and I usually spend 90% of our gaming time here due to the fact that my wife likes to play $3 blackjack, however, they never opened opened a $3 table. Not sure if they stopped the $3 blackjack completly or not. It was always a popular table. Not sure we will stay again as we like to start and end our day @ the tables.
Affordable. Rooms are in better shape than the lobby. The Registration area is like something from a youth houstel. it has a sign made of plastic hanging from twine. No one is happy
Very cozy and comfortable. Staff was amazing. Always willing to help in any way possible. Rooms do need updating. We came with a large group and had quite a few rooms. Everyone ended up with some type of rash before leaving. Not sure if it was the hard water in the hotel, or whatever the sheets and blankets are being cleaned with.
There was a leaking toilet, noises and keep us awake. Other than that it was ok.
Price point House keeping "Threw Away" My Rasberry Pi 3, the internet is wildly overpriced for 2016, They forced me to change rooms mid-stay. and Eric Eisenberg, Eric Eisenberg, Director Of Hotel Operations was completely unhelpful in compensating me for all that went wrong. His response to my missing hardware and move was "Can I buy you a coffee?" Just a nightmare but hey you get what you pay for....
