Situated less than a 10-minute stroll from Greyhound Bus Station, Golden Nugget Las Vegas offers guests an ideal base when in Las Vegas. Las Vegas's well-known tourist spots are within close proximity to Golden Nugget Casino, with Las Vegas City Hall just a 10-minute walk away. Golden Nugget Las Vegas and Fremont Street Experience are only a two-minute walk from the resort.
This was our 5th time at the Golden Nugget, it's been great every time, although this was the first time with a resort fee. The hotel is clean with friendly staff, clean rooms, nicely furnished. A particular shout out to Art the bartender at the Ice Bar, he's friendly, helpful and was great to chat with! We don't use the pool but everyone who was there seemed to enjoy it. We ate at the Grotto, the Chart House and the Claim Jumper and we enjoyed every meal.
Our 1st trip to Vegas was certainly no disappointment. We had a fantastic stay at GN. Our room was clean although we wished we had a mini fridge for our stay. Hotel staff were courteous and friendly. Fremont Street Experience was definitely interesting especially on St. Patrick's Day. We enjoyed the bands and the unusual sights. :)
"Like a city by itself"
I would have given this hotel a 5, if only they didn't add that pesky and useless resort fee that they now have but didn't during my visit there last year. When I asked them about it, they said it was because people wanted WiFi. Seriously people, my phone gives me all of the service I want, it is faster, and I'm not paying $31 a day for it. If Super8, Comfort Inn, Best Western, etc. can give you WiFi without a resort fee, I'd think that the Golden Nugget should be able to. I think it's just a cover to make their rates appear to be cheaper. They should just advertise a rate and that is it. During our last visit, we paid something like $5, for "Fremont experience fee" or something like that, which we felt we felt we could live with. This hotel didn't used to have any resort fee, and that was our primary reason for staying there in the past, but now we will no longer be guests of this hotel. It seems to be pointless when you now pay the same amount or less on the Strip and there is so much more to do there. As for the hotel itself, guests will love the outdoor pool and hot tub, along with the fish tank. They have a number of bars, restaurants, and a good-sized gaming floor. It is a comparable size and of the same quality as the hotels on the Strip. You may actually be able to get a better rate now on the Strip than the Golden Nugget. We stayed in the Rush Tower. If you don't want to party all night long, or until quite late, choose the side away from Fremont Street. We asked for that this time. Last year they put us on the noisy side and we had to move.
"Horrible view and noise in Gold Tower 1426"
The room is very nice, upgraded, clean, nicely furnished with a comfy king bed, L-shaped couch and leather chair with ottoman. Very nice room... The problem, which will be the same for all the ××26 rooms. These are on the wall with elevators so SUPER LOUD and NON-STOP. Sounds like a small plane engine. Room very dark because the window looks out to a concrete wall maybe a few feet away. You can crane your neck sideways and catch a small glimpse of a sliver of Fremont Street. I called down immediately and asked for another room. They told me they were full up (Thursday at 4:30 pm') and to check tomorrow in case someone checks out early and they would see what they could do. My husband went back to the desk and they magically had a new room. The girl was very nice downstairs, but said we should have told her what kind of room we wanted... oh brother!!! Steer clear of Gold Tower xx26 rooms...
"Away from the strip but in the middle of the action"
The Golden Nugget is huge with many amenities such as restaurants, pool, hot tub and casino. The room was clean and large but housekeeping was minimal. Resort Fee was high considering the services available for it. Location was good, able to take part in the street party overnight if we wished and an easy bus ride to the strip. It is right in the middle of Freemont street and we had a room on the back which kept it quiet. Food is cheaper on Freemont than on the strip so that was a bonus. Staff was good and answered questions with a smile. The shark/fish tank was awesome but the slide was broken so were unable to slide through it on this trip. I would never bring kids myself as clothing seems to be optional in this area of town but there were a few kids around.
