My experience in this hotel was disappointed . My room Did not look nothing like it was showed in the pictures They gave me a room that was so small & very old room The ceiling was almost falling apart right on top of me & they were lots of Holmes people out side the hotel asking for money . Plus their machines kept breaking down often. Plus their is a $200 deposit up front from your debit card and it takes up to 10 days to returned back to you . It was just a really bad experience . I would not recommend this hotel ..

El Cortez is in Fremont East rather than in the Fremont Street Experience, but the FRE is just a few blocks away. Parking is free. Like most of the downtown properties it's a tremendous value. Very old but clean enough.

BUY 1 night get the next El Cortez night FREE!!! I arrived earlier than my 2pm check-in time, and the front desk clerk happily gave me a vintage room. Check-in took less than a minute! My only counter point was the thermostat was set for 85 degree heat, but the room never quite got to 70 degrees (all night too). However the sheet,blanket,sheet bed spread arrangement was quite satisfactory in keeping me warm in bed! (With that thermostats setting of 85 degrees left untouched, or unadjusted byme). This old building probably is in need of an ALL new weather proofing to keep ALL the heat inside of it.

very clean, close to sightseeing spots, and cheap. The only bad thing was that housekeeping kept waking us up at 9am everyday. Besides that everything was ok.

Stayed at El Cortez for 2 nights during a bachelor party. El Cortez casino still has some of the best gambling anywhere in Las Vegas. The only downside is that this place still attracts some of the riff raff and garbage that happens to wander into the casino from the surrounding area. However, looking past that, it still has good gambling conditions, decent drink service and a fair ratings system.

I did not mind the hotel as it is a block from the freemont experience which is great and it was cheap. The staff was okay they seemed understaffed. The waitress staff also seemed a little stressed. Overall I give it a 2 out of 5 since I personally dont stay in the hotel too much.

They seem to be an obvious overflow hotel for citywide activities in Las Vegas. Seemed as though they really weren't prepared/staffed to be sold out which they were. Location was ok - rooms small but clean. No bedspreads on bed???? - just a sheet covering a blanket. Check in was understaffed. Did appreciate the transportation back to the airport.

airy outside cause over the parking garage but room nice and beautiful furniture. Can't beat the price and right at the end of Freemont experience so you don't miss a thing. This was our second stay but probably not the last

I went into this trip not knowing what to expect. Some reviews were positive and some were negative. So, I thought I would give it a shot staying here because I wanted to spend most of my evenings on Fremont Street. After four days, I'm sold! I had a great time at the El Cortez. The atmosphere was laid back, the room was very clean, bed was comfortable and the food in the restaurants was good and reasonably priced. Now the questions is would I stay there again and would I recommend it to friends? The answer is YES! I had a great time and will book my next Vegas vacation at El Cortez.

I have nothing but good things to say about this hotel. Mine was the vintage room and I was surprised at how spacious it was! Queen bed, 2 closets, desk area, and a sectional type couch. Complimentary shampoo, conditioner, soap, and lotion included and a coffee maker and hair dryer in the room. They also have free parking and located on East Fremont so I never had to drive. They gave me 2 complimentary fun books that included free games, drinks, and discounts on dining. Downtown is a different vibe than the strip but definitely worth a stay.

The hotel is conveniently located within the downtown area specially if you want to experience the Fremont St. activities during the night. There is ample parking and easily accessible. The room is nice and very convenient.

Vintage room was horrible. Room was cold, and the bathrooms were disgusting. No Elevator to rooms, had to carry luggage up stairs.. Horrible ventilation from cigarette smoke throughout the whole hotel.. I would never stay there again and would never recommend it. Overall bad experience

I have fairly low expectations for Vegas hotel rooms, we just need it to get showered and sleep basically. There were maintenance issues with the room we had, the sink and tub drained very slow, hubby had to hold the toilet seat up to use it, the HVAC system and exhaust fan were way too loud. There was minimal effort put in to clean the room each day, and the hotel towels were not bath sized, unless you were using these on small child, they were too small.

The Hotel was nothing like the pictures made it out to be. The area that it was in was kinda sketchy. But, I knew I wasn't going to be in the room very much. I was running the Ragnar Las Vegas relay for 2 of the 3 days that I reserved the room. While I was gone, they didn't switch out the towels that I used and didn't make up the beds. The room was pretty clean when I checked in. The price was not bad for what I needed the room for. The hotel was nice enough. I would probably stay here again if I was on a tight budget and had to get a cheap hotel.
