Great burger

Binions has a great hamburger in the coffee shop. You sit right in the middle of the action. There are changes on the property, but still has some of the old Vegas feel. Where else can you get a picture made with a million dollars!

another update

Stayed at the 4 queens in October so I tried to give Binions some business. But nothing looked inviting compared to the other downtown casinos. The best deal was the picture with the million dollars. They did have a free spin at the entrance with some coupons.

An Update

Binions is really being diminished. The pool was available on my last visit. As been stated there are no rooms as the hotel has been closed for a while. But if you stayed at the 4 Queens the pool was available. For downtown the VP is poor in selection and paytables.

Binions" where its all over"

No longer the Horseshoe, Binions has been going down hill for many years now and the freefall continues. the hotel has been closed for years, the casino has some average table games, poor selection of video poker, and a poker room that never seems very busy. They do have some some very good tourneys with low buy ins good strctures and variety of games, they always did this well.

a 'classic'

one of the classic casinos. a lot of vibe on the floor. had a great prime rib dinner at their restaurant for a great price. good location in the middle of everything downtown. the bus stop to the airport and other places is right outside the casino. don't pass it up if you are downtown.

Shadow of its former self

No longer owned by the Binion family, and no longer has the Horseshoe name, Binion's has fallen on hard times. The original home of the WSOP, the wall outside of the poker room has a display of photos of some of the winners of early WSOP. Another
attraction is the $1,000,000 display. (Is that all real money in there? lol). Lots of older slot machines that you don't see at the newer casinos anymore. good action at the table games, good deli and snack bar.

Good Casino - But Not Operating Hotel at This Time

I happen to be paralyzed and in a wheelchair, but fly out several times a year I fly out to Vegas and always enjoy checking out the various casinos -- especially the Downtown properties.

Even though all of the rooms at Binion's were shut down a couple of years ago and do not appear to be re-opening anytime soon, my friends and I spend a fair amount of time here each year. The nice part about their casino floor for a wheelchair user is that is not 100 percent carpeting (more difficult to push my wheelchair), but it has a couple of long hardwood floor paths that take you through the table games and down to the Sportsbook, cashier, restrooms, etc.

We are not high-stakes gamblers, but we receive regular offers from Binion's which include comp rooms nights, free slot play and meal discounts. The offers include rooms at the Four Queens which is our favorite hotel so it works out well for us.

But Binion's still has several things in its favor. We like the variety of table games. Even though the odds are not supposed to be as favorable to the player (according to computer probabilities), we enjoy a couple of the newer variations of 21 -- Blackjack Switch and Burn 20 Blackjack. Both involve a bit of different strategy and decision making from the basic 21 table game.

Another nice feature of Binion's is the rooftop swimming pool which is open during the warmer weather months. You can access the pool area with your Four Queens room key and enjoy a terrific view and some comfortable outdoor lounge furniture.

I also am a fan of Binion's Steakhouse which serves fine food with excellent service at a much more reasonable cost than one would pay in a Strip resort property.

And the Binion's Coffee Shop and Sportsbook lounge serve decent burgers -- althouh I have not yet had to try their advertised "Hangover Burger" special.

I should note that we are not slot players and only play video poker when we take a break from the 21 tables, so I never award any "5" rating for slot machines in my reviews. But when I have remembered to use the free slot play on my Binion's offers, I usually end up winning a few extra, unexpected dollars to help pay for my other vices.

The Binion's Sportsbook is also fine with some really nice customer service, but I don't like their board at much when there are a lot of college football or college basketball games scheduled and they seem to take a little long to cash tickets mailed in.

Crowded, Stuffy and a Million Bucks to Boot!

I always make a stop in here when I am Downtown in Vegas... Like a lot of the other posts, history does only count for so much.

This place was really crowded. It was a Wednesday night around 9pm when I was here last in October. The place really seems to fill up just after the Fremont Street Experience show. My advice, grab a machine during the show to save some time walking around.

They have a "free-pull" machine out front that never pays off, but they give you a voucher to have you picture with $1,000,000. It's under glass, but cool to see.

The machines seem to payout more frequently here than on the strip and other places Downtown.

I think if the hotel does undergo some renovations, and they do the same with the casino floor, this place would be a lot better.

If you don't like crowds, smoke and feeling as though you can't breathe, don't go in the evening... Mid-day would be better...

History Only Counts For So Much

I have been to Binion's a bazillion times. I enjoy the "old Vegas" atmosphere but that only goes so far. I am a poker player so their poker history is significant and I have spent many hours playing poker at Binion's. The last time we played there were so many degenerate gamblers at our table it made our experience pretty depressing. The straw that broke the camel's back was this one guy who was extremely intoxicated and continued to slobber and yammer and never acted when it was his turn. He complained and made all kinds of noise and it slowed the game to a crawl. I asked the poker room manager why they don't get rid of the guy and he said that management wants it this way. So they don't care if a moron disrupts the experience for 8 other people, as long as they get as many playing as possible. And I have been told that poker room manager and fixture Carol has finally left after about 40 years.

We left and may not go back. Their coffee shop is one of the oldest and most historical significant downtown and I will miss it. But I won't miss much else from Binion's. RIP.

Crowded.

Only went in to check out the atmosphere and stayed to play the slots for a while. Won pretty often, but didn't like the crowded atmosphere. Seemed everyone was on top of each other. Not enough oxygen.

Famous No More

The hotel component is boarded up (this used to be "the mint" from the 1960s and 70s) and the casino layout, reflecting the casino's growth over time, is confusing, but there is still some history here, and if you walk around to the back of the casino, you still see the poker room where poker really got started in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, the tournaments have moved on (to the Rio), as have most of the big money gamblers. Benny Binion is long gone, and the rest of the casino looks like all the rest along Fremont, which is a bit sad.

Horseshoe Update

The have returned the UTH Video Dealer machine to the floor, nice. St. Pauli Dark is good. Steakhouse is a great place to get a taste of old Vegas if you have the comps and the comps are easy to get. Pai Gow is fun if you get a good dealer and a nice place to hear the Fremont Experience.

Victim of the economy

As I understand it, Binion's has unfortunately boarded up its hotel operation until the economy brightens. The gaming and restaurants are still open in the interim which is reason enough to give it a visit. The view from their Ranch Steakhouse along with the quality meal are spectacular and the casino is still a great little value and action play worth patronizing.

It's just that you'll have to flop at the Nugget when both the whiskey and fatigue call. Too bad. Another Vegas classic on the economic gallows.

It's a legend


Just got back from a marvelous vacation in Las Vegas.



Stopped in Binions to check it out after a 30 year hiatus, Almost the same as I remembered.The coffee shop downstairs, the friendly staff and great prices.

It's a legend.They still have the free photos with a million bucks.



This is a great place for the penny pincher to gamble; low stakes and plenty of

free drinks. A no frill place, steps away from a fantastic light show every evening.

BEWARE Binion's does not honor online contracts!


I had a confirmed reservation through Orbitz for two rooms with two double beds or one king bed in each room Nov 2008. I got two rooms with one double bed each. When I inquired at the front desk about changing my room to what was confirmed I was told that Binion's is not obligated to agreements made through their online partners.



They told me that if I wanted to complain that I would need to complain to the company that made the reservations. They told me that they would meet the stipulations of the Orbitz by bringing by two rollaway beds. I was told by the front counter that the entire hotel was sold out and there was no possibility to change rooms.



The drapes were grey from lack of cleaning. There was a wiring mess next to the TV. There were poorly mended holes in the carpet and wallpaper. In the hallways there were black smudges on the ceiling near the vents. There were holes in doors that were not in use. I couldn't tell if anyone had cleaned in a long time. There was no ice machine in the tower that we stayed in. I went over to the other tower and found that there was an ice machine on every floor.



The Fremont Experience was nice if you are outside on the street. From inside our room it sounded like we had an adjoining room onto a disco. It only went on until around midnight.



I would not stay at Binion's ever again. I would not recommend to anyone to ever stay at Binion's. If you don't heed the advice on this review I hope you got an excellent deal.

love this place


Stayed four days mid sept. 08. The staff and atmosphere could not be better. The rooms could use a little upgrading , but they are still clean and well equipped.



The gaming and food are great also the bars, especially the sports bar. The downtown location is nothing to be afraid of. There are many casinos and restaurants within a short walk.,and the strip is only a short cab, bus, or car ride away.

This is the place to be!

We visited the casino 7/8/08 thru 7/11/08. Didn't stay in the hotel but the casino is great.



Best place to eat downtown is the coffee counter just off the casino floor. Order the Hobo Stew w/ cornbread. Fabulous! Hamburgers are perfect! The counter is small and doesn't look like much, but the lady behind the counter can cook great meals at lighting speed.



All the staff was nice and drinks came fast. Games were okay too.

Went there summer 2005. Place was nothing special. The staff was not friendly to us. Looked rundown. Saw a cross dresser at the craps tables.
