  • El Cortez Hotel & Casino: Great Choice for the Serious Gambler on a Budget

    Rooms are O.K. - even after the remodel, don't assume it is awesome. But it is better. Nicest rooms are in the Cabana Suite, but be smart and make sure you are in an upgraded room over in the "Suites" otherwise your room will feel more like the Cabana Closet. Wife refuses to stay here, she hates having to cross the street after dark - especially when the posted security guard is caught up doing things other than his job (flirting with the ladies appears to be a priority). As for the rooms in the hotel, stay away from the vintage rooms unless you truly don't know where the homeless shelter is. Tower rooms are O.K., but their last remodel might as well been decades ago as their room inventory is ridden hard. Casino is the reason to go. Slots are the best in Vegas, and tables are frequent and popular. Maybe too popular as sometimes you will have to be patient, especially on the lower end .25 cent and .50 banking games. Sports Book has heavy traffic. Keno but no Bingo. Players Club - shockingly - is only So So, fairly stingy with free play and increasingly more stingy with free rooms and food (not sure why given that they are not all that special).Food is still good and reasonably priced. But it too used to be better.Cortez is still an above average choice for the Downtown Gambler on a budget.
