"Great place to stay. Ventilation needs work."
One of the better places to stay in Carson City. The hotel is comprised of an older section and newer section. I would say the rooms in the newer section is where you want to stay. The one big downside of the hotel is that the whole place smells of cigarette smoke. It seems like the ventilation system is unbalanced and smoke moves from the casino to […] the rest of the hotel. This causes even non-smoking rooms to smell like cigarettes. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had wonderful customer service, even though the hotel has a non smoking policy the whole hotel smelled of cigarette smoke even in our room it was very heavy. And the whole hotel lookes dark and dated, also the rooms on the website do not match what was advertised. But the food in cafe ole ole was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place to stay"
The room was very clean with all necessary items functioning. The housekeeping staff were friendly and efficient. We only stayed one night, but was very comfortable. I would definately reccomend this hotel - not a four or five star place - but a comfortable, affordable place that takes care of overnight needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gold Dust West"
Most of the reviews that I read about the Gold Dust are true. Everything about this place is well above average except the price which was lower than average. The downfall is the connection to the casino. The cigarette smoke permeates the hotel because they are connected at the check in desk. The restaurants are located at the far end of the casino […] so you are forced to walk through the casino to eat. The cigarette smoke is not so prevalent in the hallways or the rooms but by the time you eat dinner it's clinging to your clothing and taken into your room. The Ole Ole Mexican restaurant has great Mexican food and the Cadillac margarita was very good. The free breakfast at The Grille Cafe was also very good but again you have to walk through the casino to eat. Being from California and not used to the smoke it was somewhat annoying. I stayed here on business. If I had brought my wife for a personal trip I would never had heard the end of the smoke issue. With the technology of commercial grade air recyclers available today this problem could be corrected. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The cigarette smoke permeated most of the hotel and into the rooms. Had to move rooms to 3rd floor which helped. Other than that the hotel was good. Staff was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

It was great but they need room service and PPV movies. Gambling is fun. Room was very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice Time at Gold Dust"
The only issue was the heavy smoke smell permeating through our room, although the room doors All stated they were mon smoking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay again, but not on second floor"
New clean room. Quiet, yet close to highway. Free breakfast, not a standard "buffet" style. Easy access to downtown. Due to smoking allowed in Casino, our room on the second floor smelled of smoke. Would suggest 3rd floor or higher, if cigarette smoke is a bother for you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice quiet place with casino"
A nice place with a casino and two restaurants on site.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We asked for...and "I think" got a no smoking room. But the room still smelled of smoke. I don't think it was because someone had smoked in it previously...I just think the fact that there is smoking in the casino allows smoke to filter into the rooms. Our stay was okay...the breakfast included was good...just would have been more enjoyable if there […] wasn't the constant smell of smoke everywhere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Smoky Lobby pulls down ratings."
With the motel and casino lobby being one of the same, the person renting a room gets hit heavily by the smoke from the casino.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was very nice. Being a non smoker I wished there had been a divider between check-in and the casino. As soon as you walk into the hotel you are smelling cigarettes. Fortunately the rooms don't smell like smoke. We were on the lower level and I was pleased by this.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You know you're in Nevada all right..."
I chose the Gold Dust West because of the ratings here on Hotels.com. Got great ratings, good price, and I booked it. However, my top warning: if you are at all sensitive to cigarette smoke, this isn't the place for you, as even though the hotel is either completely or partially non-smoking, it doesn't matter. You smell it - everywhere. The hotel is […] connected to their mid-sized casino, and the smell of stale cigarette smoke permeates the entire place, and our room was far from the casino. We opened the window and had the exterior fan running continually, but it was still there. -- That said, the hotel was convenient, the bed quite comfortable, and the amenities good. We ate breakfast there as part of the room, and it was a real breakfast. I'd easily give the hotel four stars . . . if it wasn't for the smell of cigarettes. But this is Nevada, after all . . .

stayed here for the great rate - definitely wouldn't have paid the hotel's reservation site "best" rate. the room was clean, beds comfortable, and the staff was great, but i forgot that casinos allow smoking -- and even in the non-smoking rooms, you can't escape that smellGenuine Expedia guest review
Absolute clean nice comfortable rooms. Casino is nice and very friendly. Very close to downtown Carson ( 1 mile) or Virginia City (about 10 miles). Rooms are large, very comfortable beds. Excellent service. These people, as all in Carson City, are there to make you happy and they all seem to like their jobs. In room coffee, as well as always out by […] the desk whenever you want to just sit and relax. Large beautiful bathrooms that seem more like home than a Motel room. Lots of cupboard storage. Extremely clean. All casino games, and sports book. We got free breakfast every morning. Not talking a piece of bread and a doughnut here. Bacon , eggs, hash browns, coffee, toast in their cafe which is open 24/7. Very good food. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"at the hub"
The hotel was at the perfect location. It was a short drive to Virginia City for a day-outing and a few miles into the center of town. The front desk was able to go on-line and look-up information to answer some of my travel inquiries.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best of Surrounding Area Accommodations"
The front desk staff was quick, clear and courteous. They also extended me a couple of extra hours because I needed a place to change clothes before a 4pm wedding. If you don't need rest or sleep, it's okay. Paper thin doorways with lots of space around the doors allow conversations with loud guests in hallways, in rooms, in bathrooms, in general. However, […] handicapped parking was close to many entrances. Though the beds had permanent body impressions, I got a comfortable night's sleep. The pillows were plump and comfortable. Free breakfast is a nice benefit, and the menu items are nice. When I return to Carson City, I'll probably stay here again, but now I know what to expect. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
They were able to accommodate an earlier than normal check - in time. Wish more hotels had earlier check in times for those of us who work at night and sleep during the day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Rooms ~ Very Smoky Establishment"
The hotels room was nice and newly remodeled. Large bathroom with nice countertops. The shower spit out lukewarm water at best!! It was recommended that we stay on the 3rd floor since we had children that would be bothered by smoke. All the hallways smelled of stale cigarette from the casino! You could seriously get lung cancer just from walking through […] the hallways. The pool and hot tub were clean, and the restaurant had really good breakfast! Hotel staff were very nice as well.

"Overnight stay in area."
Room was comfortable.( a little smoke smell even though supposed to be non smoking.) We thoroughly enjoyed the bowling alley the next day as we were visiting a grandchild for his birthday. The pool and spa area was very nice. Elevator needs some renovation. The restaurant (The Grille) was very good for breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Less than satisfied"
The hotel was very noisy the first night (Sun) as the doors and walls were thin and didn't block noise. As most people checked out Mon, the 2nd night was much quieter. The room was very clean and well kept but the bed had indentations in each side from much use. The desk person told every person the room she was giving them was 'her favorite' (I heard […] her). She also promised to get me info on the area as I was looking to relocate to Carson City but she never did. Lastly, she recommended the mexican restaurant, Ole Ole, so I went there. It was awful. Salsa wasn't fresh but gelatinous and sauce on burrito was so disgusting (thick, gluey chipotle) that I had to scrape it off. I ate the meal but would NEVER go there again nor to this hotel. :-( Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Smokey Room - Not Appealing"
My room was extremely smokey smelling. I even opened the windows and could not get rid of the smell. My room was a non-smoking room and I am a non-smoker which made it very difficult for me to sleep. I would recommend this hotel to any smoker. Other than the smell of the room, the hotel was fine. I would have stayed elsewhere but I booked my room late […] for the Sheriff's and Chief's Conference and there wasn't a huge choice of hotels to select from. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not sure if I would call it a 3 star but it was OK"
The staff were all friendly and quite helpful. The room was very motel 6ish, meaning functional but nothing to write home about. The towels were not particularly plush. The mattress though was very comfortable, which was a welcome surprise. The price was only OK. I asked them about their rack rate when I checked in and they were considerably less than […] what this site had charged. So if I decide to go back there, it will be by contacting them directly.

Hotel/Casino is clean and staff are friendly. Definitely a great place to stay in Carson City for the price. Plenty of parking and easy to get in and out of.

Ole Ole Mexican restaurant is really good and a must if you stay there and like Mexican food.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best hotel in Carson City"
Been to this hotel several times and it's definitely one of the nicest in Carson City. Small casino in the building and pretty good restaurant. Rooms are nice with comfortable beds. Our room location was a little inconvenient being somewhat far from the main entrance, but we should have asked for something closer. Even though, car access from ANY room […] location is very easy. I highly recommend this place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great price , comfy bed"
The rooms where clean and hotel staff very pleasant. Our room came with a free breakfast from the grill located in the casino , it was a huge meal. I've stayed in many hotels and for the price this one was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything about this hotel was very nice, except the cigarette odor. Even though we were in a non-smoking room, the odor is strong throughout the building. Otherwise, the hotel is fairly new, nicely furnished, has a neat little kitchenette with refer and sink, excellent bed and other features. It is convenient to the new section of freeway so not much […] of a problem to find it. They also have a nice little restaurant there with pretty good food. The only negative we found was the cigarette odor and I think that is probably a problem with every casino type hotel in Nevada. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice Place, Too Smokey"
Even though we had a non-smoking room, the hallways, the restaurants, everything smelled like smoke. It is a nice hotel, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff was excellent, but the smoke was just too much.

We stayed […] in a number of casinos on our trip, but the smoke in the hallways and rooms was never this bad. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"RV and hotel"
Over all great stay I want to thank Ashely and Jack for making a bad situation turn to a great stay! The person working the front desk the night we checked into the RV Park acted as we were a bother. Also placed us as far from everything as possible. But talk to the Asst Hotel Manager Jack, He fixed it all and made it a pleasant night! The RV Park needs […] some kind of screening from the highway . We checked into the hotel for 2 nights and had a great time ! The restaurants and the Bowling Alley are great! Is a great place to base for a visit to south Tahoe area! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
