There is still some good gambling on Boulder Highway. With Sam's Town, Arizona Charlie's and the Cannery. There is also Boulder Station, with very good video poker pay tables and a busy poker room, They no longer allow smoking, but it was still plenty busy mid week. And all the Stations casinos have a good size inexpensive buffet, but we were there to play.

Boulder station is more about the casino than the hotel. Plenty of full pay and 100% video poker and plenty of the rest also. Good size casino that should have whatever game you play. The poker room always seems to have a few games going when I am there, and is one of the last smoking poker rooms anywhere. This place just reminds me of old vegas, in a good way.

So we had a coupon for the buffet and decided to head out for the breakfast buffet. The line for the buffet on a weekday was comparable to the line for Sunday Brunch at Paris. However most of the line was large families with infant and toddler children. We waited over an hour in line for breakfast, however we were in line so long that we had to have lunch. The lunch was completely underwhelming.

The casino is laid out strangely, so I never really seemed to know where I was in comparison of other things. The table game area had no excitement whatsoever.

I like Palace Station so I wanted to like Boulder Station too. But I didn't.

Pasta Cucina (formerly Pasta Palace) is similar to its namesakes at several Station properties. This restaurant offers a limited menu, is inexpensive and of mediocre quality. There are monthly specials available. In January spaghetti and meatballs will run you a mere $6.99. The 2013 LVA MRB includes a coupon good for $4 off an entrée for parties up to 4.

The Railhead is famous for its blues sessions that recently switched from Wednesday to Saturday nights. We used to attend every week while in Las Vegas, but the volume is often cranked up too loud.

Kixx Lounge offers karaoke on Friday nights.

Other entertainment options include a movie complex. Parents can drop off their children at Kids Quest.

I am totally confused why the Feast buffet is so popular. The buffet was remodeled a few years ago so we recently gave a try for breakfast. Unfortunately nothing changed in terms of preparation or service. The fruit selection was limited and unripe, the OJ watery and most of the items on the steam table were mediocre. The only redeeming feature was the buffet is currently priced cheap at $4.99 for slot card members. Rating of 1 on a scale of 1-5.

The Broiler is your typical locals’ steakhouse featuring an all you can eat salad bar with prices that seem high given the locals/retirees nature of their clientele. The current (August 2012) special is steamed (Maine) lobster, smoked sausage, red potatoes and drawn butter. There is also a $12.99 prime rib dinner being offered. The Broiler used to offer an excellent Sunday brunch but that has been discontinued.

I only play video poker so my comments a limited to that area. The casino offers a wide variety of full video poker games returning over 100% including FPDW, JW, DB, LDW and DDB. $4 equals 3 points on positive VP games for a return of 0.075% cash, comps or freeplay.
If you play the under 100% VP schedules, $1 Coin-In = 3 Points for a return of 0.30%.
Senior points on Wednesdays have been discontinued though periodically double (6 times) point days are advertised in the R-J and on its facebook page. I just noticed an ad in the RJ where double points will be offered to seniors on Wednesdays in August (2012) – swipe at the kiosk if you are a local, non locals have to go to the club booth.

We have stayed at Boulder Station a few times and visit to play video poker even when staying elsewhere. We have not stayed there since the rooms were renovated in late 2011, but they were previously very clean and tastefully decorated. This is the second oldest of the Station Casinos scattered across the valley.

Hotel - The rooms are of average size and quality and well maintained. The clientele is primarily locals, blue collar workers and retirees. The reason we no longer stay there is the excessive resort fee of the $12.99 per night. The pool sees few visitors as it is ridiculously small.

We have stayed at the Boulder Station Casino when they sent us a free room offer in the past. They also send us 2 for 1 coupons for the buffet in the mail. Earlier this year I entered a contest on their Facebook page and won buffets for 2.

I'm frugal in expenses when I go to Vegas so Boulder fits my budget. I usually play enough to eat at buffet for day. Full pay machine comps not that good, but they are ones over 100 percent and table games start at 3 dollars so I fit right in. Food ok in buffet and other restaurants off floor including a Burger King and a Subway and there is a Starbucks. Pool is small, rooms are quiet, but not greatly lit. Overall, I think it's an awesome place to stay and staff is friendly.

We have stayed numerous times at Boulder Station due to the low cost rooms, video poker and restaurant choices. Rooms are slightly above average and there is a guard checking IDs until early in the morning. On the negative side the lighting in the room is poor for reading and the points awarded on the full pay machines are laughable. I can recommend the Broiler and Guadalajara restaurants. Rooms are inexpensive though tend to be too high on weekends.
