Horrible hotel

Hotel had no elevator up to our room. Stair access only which is very difficult when you travel with an infant, which is what we were doing. Front desk was no help to switch rooms to accommodate us. Ordered a non-smoking room, which had definitely been a smoking room previously. Bathtub was clogged and wouldn't drain when taking a shower. Wasn't able to use the free wifi amenity in the section of hotel we were in. Terrible hotel and stay, will never recommend or ever stay here again.

Good place for Freemont, good value and a VERY good price

Wifi worked decent, was free with room (unlike some of the "expensive" hotels) - Resort fee was reasonable - Room rate is great - Service good - food good -- rooms clean and comfortable always. It's a minor hassle to be at Freemont instead of on the main strip but there's plenty to do up there also..

Poor staff

Arrived at 3pm and was told 4 times to go away as my room was not ready yet. Finally at 5pm I pushed the matter with the intention of raising with senior management - then my room is ready. No explanation given. Housekepping was also poor.

Could be better.

Our stay was satisfactory to an extent. The room was spacious, the bed was pretty comfy, and the food was decent. It definitely isn't as glamorous as it once was. You can tell it is aging and not so well. My biggest beef was they didn't have free wifi! I will probably not stay there again. But it works if you're on a budget. Did have a great time on Fremont St. Love the atmosphere and the people are nicer.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

At the Golden Gate Hotel the restaurant called Du Pars. It was amazingly good. A bit pricey but no where near as expensive as a place on The Strip would be! The homemade jams and jellies were delicious! And the pie! Yummy!!!

My bussines trip

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 ..

Typical downtown casino

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.
