I did not stay in el cortez tower but i was upgraded to Jr suite whioch is 5 storey building next to el cortez hotel and casino. Chceking was smooth room was nice the color was light green which is not everyone taste but for one night i could not care less. All necessary things in were provided. Room was clean, nice. Really good value for the money. Free tea and coffee provided with keurig machine. And one mportant thing. After the resort fee hikes in Vegas Cortez is one of the best option.(about14$ resort fee). Fremont street is around the corner.

experiencing another era”

close to fremont experience, friendly staff, gamblers that are regular people, drinks come often not once an hour like many other casinos,renovated rooms and excellent security unlike the area was 3 years ago.
only one poker table

I've stayed downtown many times over the years but rarely went off the fremont experience. The el cortez area has really been cleaned up with dramatic facelifts and security guards everywhere.I feel comfortable at all times.This time I stayed in the renovated old ogden house and it is now better than any casino hotel in the area. will return in a couple months to enjoy the el cortez again.

El Cortez was excellent! From the staff and room to the casino such a great experience. ”

Our first time staying in Fremont Street. We stayed in the Cabana Suites. With a boutique style setting, it was so easy to get in and out of our room without having to walk through a casino. I liked the Art Deco vibe the lobby offered...plus skittles on the counter was a plus. We stayed in a Senior Suite, a large room with Art Deco vibes as well. Comfy bed, big shower, sinks for 2... El Cortez was a great stay.

Best value in a hotel in Fremont area”

Room size, friendly staff, free airport shuttle

I've stayed at the El Cortez numerous times and will continue to do so as it represents consistent value in a Vegas property. I would recommend the Tower rooms....large and well appointed. The Cabana suites are modern but small....the Vintage and Pavillion rooms are too dated to be nice. No pool but the staff are excellent, the hotel is spotlessly clean, good WiFi signal and the casino has a friendly atmosphere with cocktail waitresses never far away. The hotel has one of the most reasonable " resort fees " in Vegas. I would highly recommend this hotel for those on a budget but looking for value.

great hotel, minus the "resort" fee”

El Cortez is a classic old vegas hotel. It's definitely not fancy, but beats staying at the strip in terms of price and, depending on your preference, atmosphere. Only complaint was the $66 "resort fee" that got unexpectedly tacked onto the cost. ($50 is refunded at checkout, so it works out to an extra $16). Apparently that fee covers parking and in-room water and coffee (things that pretty much every hotel normally includes for free. Aside from this surprise fee, it was a great stay.

Great location & great price!”

location, price, free ride to the airport

I've never stayed on Fremont before and I'm definitely going to do it again. I would totally stay at El Cortez again. They had the best price for a 3 night stay. I thought the room was nicer than the one I stayed in at The Flamingo last year. The only bad thing I have to say about my stay was the shower/bathroom. It was very tiny, hard to get yourself and your stuff in there. Also the shower didn't drain very quickly at all. I ended up having to turn the water off and on when I took my shower or it would've over flown. I'm a girl btw so I take long showers. Probably would be okay for a guy.

Good Hotel For The Money”

Check in took awhile but the front desk staff were doing their best to move the process along but some guests can be a bit much by not listening to what was being said to them. Anyways, I paid for a Cabana room but the hotel upgraded me to the tower to a new renovated king room. Mega, the front desk clerk, said I would be pleased with the room and was also very apologetic for the long wait. The room had been recently remodeled. No carpet floors, a beautiful walk-in shower and a comfy king bed. Now this is how all the rooms should be. Please note that if you are on the Fremont side of the hotel you will hear loud music till 2 AM. It is just one downfall to the hotels design as an older hotel. The casino is smoky but the food at the restaurant is very good. The location cannot be beat as it is only 1 block away from the Fremont Street Experience.

The shower was brill and the cleaning staff attentive. I paid more for a hotel on the strip ...it was bigger and pretty but that's what you pay for...nowt else ..Buy a 'Deuce' bus ticket...from 2 hours to 3 days... at Fremont (and plenty of other places to get tickets)..and get around cheaply …. buses every 20 mins...go and use the hotel amenities on the strip. The strip is so stretched out...you either do a lot of distance walking ..or use your bus ticket!...
