  • We wanted something different to do and noticed they have bingo. It runs about every 2 hours starting at 11am and ending at 9pm. It's on the 3rd floor and you take the escalators up. It's very much de...  more »

  • Myriad of small problems like ticking noises in the restroom (it was not a leaky faucet, came from the walls or something). Super strong cheap perfume smell permeating the building and room in some cases. The the elevators constantly breaking down. They didn't work well until my last day and the very first day (stayed 5 days). No microwave on the premises even though their restaurant sells huge portions. The gambling was fun with dealers who seemed like they've been in your shoes before and make you feel comfortable as well as looking out for you on occasion. Food is pretty damn good at the hash house downstairs so that's a plus. They get stars on Gambling and food alone. So if you don't care about the whole hotel thing then this is a very affordable option.
  • My Friends stayed here at the PLAZA we got a room but we never went to sleep All the activity going on throughout the night in the casino was worth staying up, so we stayed up all night enjoying the slots and different activity. The workers were so nice to us giving us different free gifts,free dinner vouchers and drinks they offered us free play they never once treated us with disrespect I loved it there. After seeing everything on freemont The PLAZA was at the end so that was our final chill place that we enjoyed a night and a half at then we went to the new strip. But my experience at The PLAZA was Super Awesome No Doubt. I'll always return for another stay, the workers were nothing but welcoming and so nice. I Had a Super Fun Time Thanks For Making Our Visit Great😉😉 👍🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟👍
  • Parked at the Plaza for a hasn't down Fremont. Parking is free for the first three hours which was nice. Stopped in during happy hour for a light bite to eat. The prices were great, especially for the size of the $5 apps you can get. Missed all the buffet because I was still too full from the bacon Mac and cheese! Service was impeccable. The waitresses were accommodating and just genuinely nice people. Bathrooms were pretty clean, even considering that this hotel seems to be a major entrance onto the Fremont street experience. Not like you have much choice of your going to Fremont, but I still recommend this hotel for good and bathroom and even parking.
  • The plaza is a great lower price hotel in an ok location. The food there is good, and the feel is retro and cool. It's in downtown Vegas, which is a ways away from the strip. You would have to get a taxi if you wanted to go there. The actual hotel won't be beaten as far as price goes, and service is great too. It's one of the best cheaper options if you want to go to Vegas.
  • Nonsmoking room reeked of air freshener at first, then the skunky smell of pot appeared once the air freshener wore off. The water in the shower was scalding hot and would not cool down. Even the toilet had hot water, which caused some unpleasant steaming on the backside. The rooms are not business traveler friendly at all. Barely any electric outlets and, if you travelling with a co-worker, be prepared to be exposed to each other. the bathroom is tiny, with only the shower and toilet and no room to dress. The vanity and sink are in the room and the bathroom is completely visible from both beds. If you forget your towel before taking the shower, since it is under the sink, you are out of luck. Last, but most importantly, when we arrived there were 3 or the 5 elevators working. This was seemingly unbearable for a 21 story hotel. That is, until the last day when there was only 1 working elevator. The wait time for an elevator down was easily 10 to 15 minutes.
