                I have stayed at this hotel many times over the years. It keeps getting better! The budget "Vintage" room that I stayed in this trip was a great value. It is easy to get in and out of the hotel. Always plenty of parking, without having to walk 'miles' to get to the room. The hotel is in the Downtown area, far away from the busy 'strip' part of Las Vegas. I will stay there again. I love Las Vegas and the El Cortez Hotel & Casino!!

                I messed up on the type of room I reserved, and they were happy to change it for me. The price was good too.

                The Cabana Suites where I stayed was eye appealing. Staff was great, security was friendly and the location was where I needed to be. The room was comfortable.

                A water went missing, Which I did not consume and I was charged for it.

                El Cortez was a great value for the money. The bed was comfortable and staff was friendly. The staff in the casino was very friendly as well.

                We did not have a good experience at "The Flame" restaurant in the hotel. It took them forever to come to our table, then once we ordered our bottle of wine (with our free coupon) the server brought the wrong one, then after much more waiting, he came back to tell us that he would have to charge us for the wine because the salad did not qualify as an entree. If he would have told us when ordering, maybe we could have made a different choice, but he waited until we were drinking the wine to tell us. We spoke to the manager and she had nothing to do for us. Do not eat at "The Flame". It is overpriced and has poor service.

                The El Cortez was totally remodeled and is the best casino and the second best hotel (second only to Golden Nuget - 4 stars) in downtown Las Vegas. However, this is mainly a casino with a good hotel attached and is recomended only to gamblers. No swiming pool, no spa, no workout room - only a casino, a coffee shop and a restaurant. As the reserved room type (Cabana Suite) is in an annex building, totally smoke free, I managed to get "downgraded" to a smoking Tower Room. Even though I considered it a very good room, it lacks the gadgets you find in the Cabanas, like plasma tv and mp3 docking station.

                good room value, but casino was very smoke filled and most blackjack dealers and pit bosses rude.

                Very nice for an older hotel. Rooms where nice and big and very clean. It was very convenient, close to everything I was looking for. The Price was great too.

                They didn't seem to have much parking which I was concerened about. But I always did find a parking place,

                location is quite good if you're looking for downtown. 2 minute walk to freemont street experience, 15 minutes bus ride to the strip. rooms are small, but well appointed. cheap. cheap. cheap. Overall the ONLY reason to stay here is to save bucks. For the price it's a steal. However, for a better vegas experience I would recommend elsewhere.

                rooms smelled of stale cigar smoke (quite strongly). unpleasant, but you get used to it after a couple of days. the casino itself (which you have to walk through to get to your room) is truly depressing. Lots of old locals, spending their paychecks in front of a slot machine. A real downer and I walked through it as quickly as possible every time. Staff were ok.
