"Beware if "Resort Fee""
You advertise one very competitive online price and then charge an extra "resort fee" when I get there. This is a deceptive fraud. I won't be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed on the spur of the moment and we enjoyed our short brief stay. Everyone was very nice and friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was fun other then the over charges I receivedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great room gross towels"
First time in the cabana suites and fell in love!. Thought the green walls were going to be a little too much but ended up being pretty neat. The bathroom was to die for! My only issue was the towels seemed to either be dirty or washed wrong. Very stiff and crunchy with some makeup stains.. -_- other than that very much worth the price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice for a quickie"
Nice little slice of vintage Vegas.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"loud music all night"
I love the El Cortez. But this stay left me tired. I ggot the vintage room, as I usually do. But, in going for the younger crowd, they have the music turned up so loud, it was like it was playing in your room. When I left the next morning at about 5:30, the casino was pretty empty and the dealers were shouting at each other to be heard above the blaring […] music. U said something about it and was told the night casino manager would be told. The last light was better, but it was still loud. Why they need to blast music to an empty casino all night is a but strange. When I come back, I will request a 3rd floor room or to just stay in the tower. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cabana Suites best downtown value."
Fantastic room value.I opted for the fifth floor suites.Unfortunately,as this was a quiet week I would guess only one housekeeper was working.This meant no refills of coffee or water which they charge you for.Also the WiFi was spotty all week.Wednesday,the Cafe Cortez has a 50% off menu for over 50 yr olds.Good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My stay was really nice . I love the security they have on getting to your room . I felt secure that no one could get to my room with out the key. The service was great and everyone was really curtious to me and help whenever I needed it.I will definitely be going back . it felt like homeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have stayed in the cabana suites several times, and the rooms and staff are fantastic, clean and comfortable. I will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"First time in Vegas!"
In town for a card game tournament, and my first time in Vegas. Only a couple block walk to Fremont St., and the price was excellent. Room wasn't perfect, but only because I can't really think of anything particularly great or notsogreat about it. Absolutely worth the pricetag if you don't mind walking a block to anything for young people.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"check it out"
It's was delightful. Not a lot of people. East to find and great customer service at the floor. But the only thing that was bad. Was the cafe. Waited too long to take order and for food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Like El Cortez..."
Enjoy gambling here...always win! I like the dealers here most all are friendly ..nothing worse than a grumpy dealer when you are wanting a good time also slots pay off much better here than in fancier casinos on strip. Strip is good for sightseeing and fine dining but if you want to win forget the strip!!!Cafe is pretty good but they need to get the […] steakhouse open have to go somewhere else for nice dinner and the cafe is too crowded at mealtime since it is only place to eat!

"Don't Stay at the El Cortez!!!!!!!"
The El Cortez may be the worst hotel with the worst staff in the entire Las Vegas area. As an older property, one would think they'd excel at providing great customer service. However, they are horrible at it. Every one was rude, from those who checked me in to asking security a simple directional question, no one could be bothered. Staying at an unfriendly […] place is one thing, but my room was just plain dirty and unclean which made for a miserable few days. There are older properties in the downstown market that are cleaner and have much better staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"EL CORTEZ, a gem on East Fremont."
Have enjoyed staying here many times over 12 years. 1st time in a VINTAGE room. Very nice for a single. 1 queen bed may be tight, or great, for a couple. Not luxury, but rates are good. Try CABANA SUITES for more luxury. Food is prepared very well and food deals are great. Casino is cozy but adequate... bonuses abound. Happy, regular customers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stay was great. Cracked tile in shower. Kind of flooded the bathroom other than that. Good stay. Expedia charged for room. Then hotel charged deposit fee. Now I don't have any money to gamble with. Bogus..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"El Cortez vintage"
The vintage room was too loud and smokey.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Spend a few $$ more and choose the Cabana.Great little place and you don't have to walk through the smokey casino to access.The rooms smell great,which is unusual in Vegas.Only one block from the trendy downtown bars and Container Park.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"how about a four starts****"
was very good with going back very soon as long I have bathroom for my wife that is special with thee handiccpped baht be there by janery and febrary beryGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent for the low price"
Non-smoking room was still pretty smokey from the casino downstairs. Room was small with only one outlet which wasn't even enough to plug in the two lamps in the room. One was just for looks I guess? Fine deal for the low price. Very nice staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Pleased with our Stay!"
We enjoyed the very nice update of the El Cortez, wonderful to see the efforts made to keep these grand historic buildings, "if these walls could talk" . . . we stayed in the CABANA SUITES across the street from the main building & tower . . . very pleased to see security on duty at the front door and by the valet parking area. Both my husband & I had […] a nice meal at the Cafe' . . . we will be back again in the future! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Affordable resort-style stay at the Cabana Suites."
We had an overnight staycation in this room. We stayed in the Cabana Suites. The building is separate from the main casino which is nice, a short walk across the street. The neighborhood isn't the greatest, but they have 24 hour security outside the suites so it felt safe. The lobby for the suites had a luxury resort-style feel to it. The room was big, […] looked like the picture, and was clean and comfortable. The hotel was very quiet and very close to the Fremont Experience and other Fremont St. businesses. (All walking distance). I recommend trying out the Main St. Station buffet, it's affordable and quite nice for the area. Overall had a good stay at the Cabana Suites and would definitely stay again. (We had a Junior Suite.) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Smoke was nauseatingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed here a few times now and really enjoy it. The rooms are cool and old, and they always are clean. It's nothing fancy, but if you're looking for cheap or a quick over-nighter, I always stay here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"El Cortez Cabana"
The room was small but clean, just what I needed for my stay. I really liked not having to enter a smokey casino building to get to my room. Safe and clean, would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our Thanksgiving Weekend Stay"
Our three-person family stayed at the hotel over Thanksgiving Weekend.. We avoided the smoke-filled gambling hall, but the rest of the hotel was sensible and comfortable. Most important, during a very popular weekend there were still plenty of close parking spaces.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel close to old downtown and one block away from the Fremont Experience! The hotel itself is a little back in time comparing to the ones on the strip. You paid for what you get! Rooms are much much cheaper than the ones on the main strip, if you are not planning to entertain guests or showoff your vacation photos to friends and just plan on […] only spend the night or don't mind around older folks and heavy smoking at the lobby and rundown appliances. Then you won't have any problem staying here. If you're on a budget and want to save your vacation money for the slot machines or buffets. Then this place is your destination. Beats staying in a Motel 6! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Its an old hotel. I should have stayed at motel 6.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed for one night in one of the "Vintage" rooms. Rooms reeked like smoke, bedlinen, towels, etc. Overall appearance of the room was run-down and not well kept up instead of "Vintage". Staff at reception wasn't overly friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"value hunting traveler"
could hear a band playing outside up the street till 3 am. overall the room itself was comfortable and the staff friendly and helpfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for the price"
Room was a lot smaller than I thought it would be. It was supposed to be a Cabana junior suite. It was the same size as a normal room. Very noisy. I could hear the people above me walking around and it sounded like they were going to come through the ceiling. Neighborhood is very bad, so it's nice they have a security guard at the door.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed a "vintage" room which really just means old and tired. It was small but clean, and accessed by stairs which I liked. A new shower head would be an inexpensive improvement. The Cortez Cafe had good food and good deals. The dealers could have been friendlier. Not too smokey - given it is an old building. Good location downtown - close to hustle […] and bustle but not too loud. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Cabana best deal"
Cabana Junior Suite very nice. Would go back. One night at Tower... non smoking rm smelled of smokeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dont stay in a casino if you have breathing issues"
Smells of cigarettes despite despite the rooms now being no smoking rooms. If you have a breathing problem don't stay in a casino. I was not aware that everyone smokes inside the casino (Australia is smoke free indoors) and you have to walk through to go to your room. All my clothes in my suitcase smell of smoke! Despite that the room was clean and […] the girl at checkout was friendly. It was in the old section and was a double. It had an old world charm but was the room was tiny. In a great area though. Loved being in the Fremont district which was fun. Buses into the strip were easy to get. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Arkansas Get away for my brother"
I have stayed before in the attached rooms to the casino in El Cortez but decided to pay a few bucks more to upgrade to the Cabana Jr. Suites. Well worth it they are newly painted and decorated and do not smell like smoke. Room was not ready and they immediately moved my brother to one that was. It had a small frig. and the lobby had fresh fruit and […] a snack bowl of some sort of candy every day. They also have a guard at the door considering the area that is a good thing!

"Old style Vegas"
Historic old building nicely maintained. Friendly staff and lots of friendly regulars. Away from the madness glitz and glamour of the strip. Clean, and the food was good and cheap. Good restaurants in the area, Be sure and try the little market across the street and Nacho Daddy's on 3rd near Fremont. We stayed in the vintage rooms, Small, but cozy and […] clean, but will try the tower next time just for fun. Give it a try for something different Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"You get what you pay for"
Stayed with a friend for 3 nights in a Pavilion room. Make sure to take a look at the room photos before booking. The Tower and Pavilion rooms are very old, and it showed. The room was mediocre and the thermostat was broken. After requesting blankets the first night (they were out), the thermostat was fixed and blankets were delivered on Day 2. They […] also offer almost no amenities: No razor/shaver (they direct you to the gift shop), and when I asked for a room change, they said it would cost an additional $30/night, even though the room fare on this website was the same (for the same night). Overall, unhelpful front desk, not particularly kind, but an affordable stay. You get what you pay for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Still a DIVE!"
If you're a smoker, this is the hotel/casino for you! I stayed here back in 1991 and it was a dive. I was told by many people that it had been completely remodeled and was "really nice" now. BULLPOCKY!!! It's still a dive and I'll NEVER stay there again. I would gladly pay more and stay at the 4 Queens!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
