  • This is the only casino that they have beer in the casino "pit". The pit boss will give you one if you ask. No waiting for a Cocktail waitress. Pure class! Good odds on table games, Video Poker and Sl...  more »
  • Very good casino, hotel. Seigel's 1941 restaurant is absolutely amazing! I ate the Lansky burger and it goes down as the best burger I've ever had! Loose slots.  more »

  • I have never stayed at El Cortez - my review is solely on the atmosphere and general public casino/bars/restaurants. El Cortez is a little slice of history! They really focus on it too, which is pretty awesome. Everytime we stop in at El Cortez for drinks the staff is always awesome. We've also stopped in the indulge in pizza from their pizza restaurant - pretty good and nicely priced! El Cortez seems to be pretty budget friendly all around - they constantly have $5 drink specials and their Parlour Bar has 2 for 1 drinks during two separate happy hours!
  • As a Las Vegas local, El Cortez Cabana Suites is my go-to choice for when I want to take a "staycation". Rooms are extremely affordable, averaging around $40/night, with the lowest resort fees I can find. Convenient free parking garage for across the street for guests. Rooms are modern and extremely tacky, but in a good way (lime green paint, black and white furnishings), and adequately comfortable. Don't expect the nicest bed or amenities. I've also stayed in regular hotel rooms that are much larger than these 'suites'. For the price, however, it's perfect.
  • Nice hotel within short walking distance to Fremont Street Experience. Stayed in a vintage room which was older but still decent. Stairs to get to vintage rooms are right inside the casino. Staff were all very friendly. They allowed us to check in early at 11:30. My husband just stayed here in March and was happy enough with it to stay again.
  • For the price we paid I was very happy with the experience. My wife and I stayed in a tower room for a couple days while looking for an apartment in Las Vegas. Because it was during the week we were able to get the room for about 50 bucks per night. The room technically cost only 35 dollars but like all hotels in Vegas there was also a resort fee. There really isn't any resort here so that's pretty annoying but nearly all hotels in Vegas do this. The room was nice and large and had a mini fridge which was a nice feature. The bed was mediocre but not terrible. The bathroom was very dated but functioned fine. The location of the hotel is good if you want to go and explore Fremont street but don't want to hear all the noise from it all night long. Just walk a block and you're there, but you can't hear it if you want to sleep at normal hours. All the staff were extremely friendly and nice to talk to. We don't gamble but the casino seemed fine, lots of fancy newer machines, but also lots of older coin machines. Personally I find Fremont street more interesting that the Strip, but i have no interested in overpriced designer clothing.
