Economical strip choice
Good location on the strip. Reasonable room rates. Buffet forgettable. A good variety of food choices. The Tournament Banquet is a must do. Some decent vp but not a lot. I happen to like the medieval decor and format. Pool area is good for the range of prices.
Straight Forward Review
Based on January 2012 trip out west
Many Dining Options
Tournament Dinner Show
We recently visited the Excalibur Hotel-Casino. We walked over from the Tropicana Hotel Casino where we were staying.
It had been many years since we had last been here but we didn't notice anything different. Whenever we come to Las Vegas
I carry an old Excalibur dollar coin that I got many years ago for luck.
We only stayed one night, but the room was very old and smelled bad. It was cheap, but I expected more. Gambling was OK, tho. Lots of noise from kids.
Strip on a budget
This place is all about location. It's in a great spot on the strip, at affordable rates. The buffet continues to underwhelm year after year and should be avoided. The rooms have been modernized, but they are nothing special. The pool area has also been upgraded and is one of the nicer features of this property. This property continues to draw families.
Enjoy it... I did.
I came to Excaliber in 2003, it was my first trip to Vegas and it was AWESOME.... I enjoyed it and i have no complaints... I came back 2 years later in 2004 and it was great.... So yeah i know mine is kinda outdated, but id still recommend going.
Excalibur- Still One of My Favorites
I remember first visiting the Excalibur in 1992 when I was 10 years old. It was my parents 10th wedding anniversary and my Aunt & Uncle who live near Vegas wanted to find some casinos that cater more towards kids for me to enjoy. Of course there's Circus Circus which we visited, but also The Excalibur. With video games galore, and I believe at the time a motion simulator I had a blast.
Fast forward to 2010 and I fell in love with Excalibur all over again. Many of my casino reviews will be highly rated, and I guess that's because I understand and take each casino I visit for what it is/means. Sure, I wish they still had Merlin outside to fight the dragon, but this place still holds a ton of nostalgia. Cheap table games, somewhat decent slot, it ain't really that bad!
There's something still very special about walking up Las Vegas Blvd. and seeing that huge castle that makes me grin.
Decent location, decent hotel
Fun place but could use a major refurbishing. Tower 2 Widescreen rooms are nice, tower 1 original rooms not so much. Pretty nice casino & bars, restaurants I tried were OK but not spectacular. Poker room has great tables and decent staff, but it can be hard to get a game some days and drink service could be quicker. Still, I like playing poker here. Drop the resort fee Excalibur, it's sleazy and nobody likes it and you drive people like me to Harrahs properties because of it!
fun to see,but don't eat
Excalibur is a really fun casino to play in. If you like the idea of a fun colorful medieval concept check your sword at the door, this is fun.
I agree with the other reviews that you will not be over run with tons of little kids holding candy cotton sticks against your back, but there are enough around to add a kind of fun atmosphere. There is nothing wrong with the sound of a happy laugh from a younger child. Kids and pre-teens have a sparkle that adds fun to the experience. I'm not sure the show would work so well if it was just full of us old fogies.
The bad news for me is the Buffet. I have stayed in Vegas 6 times now and tried the buffet three times over those years. It has never gotten any better. The food is not bad, but it is really just a high carb basic buffet.
Perhaps this is due to kids not liking new foods, but there has never been something for us adults to look forward to tasting. If all you want is a full stomach with no taste bud wonders for a good price, it is fine. Just don't expect much. The same goes for the show dinner, but that is what you expect from the dark ages.
If traveling with children, this is the only place to stay. Much for the kids in the basement under casino.
Doesn't feel like a basement. Very open air. Expect to spend as much on carnival games as you would on gambling.
Buffet is great. Value overall is good. Rooms are clean and big enough.
Theme and music are real neat. The Knight's show is great! I''ve been twice!
Strong margaritas! Make sure to get a collector's glass.
Best of Vegas
Came to play 7/9/08 thru 7/11/08. Gaming is tops here. The staff are friendly. Drinks are great. Midway games are fun. Take home souvenirs are best won at the cheap games downstairs. Same toys and stuff are 2 or 3 times as high in the gift shops.
We saw the Louie Anderson show. He is funny! Got our picture with him before the show. Buy your tickets at a half-price outlet and save $. We sat dead center and only paid $70 for two tickets!
Valet park is the only way to go here. The self park is farther in the back. Eat at Dick's Last Resort.
More fun to play than others
I have found that, while in Las Vegas, I get more bang for my buck at Excalibur's casino.
I haven't won anything big, but I can play for quite a while on a minimal amount, unlike most of the other casinos that take your money without giving you a chance to enjoy your gaming.
They are also very good about serving drinks while you are gambling, I am always asked if I would like a drink.
No Frills, But Great Value, Great Location!
Great if you are an average Jane, like me, looking for a clean, safe, affordable place to "crash" on the high end of the Strip.
The rooms are clean, but really basic. Great if you don't spend much time in your own hotel, like me. If you are looking for comfortable beds, big rooms, and luxury services, not the place for you.
For several 3-4 day weekends a year, it is a great value on a room while being able to keep your cash for gambling, entertainment at the pricier casinos, and shows. You will not be overrun by kids and drunks, like the other end of the Strip. Overall a nice, friendly, family hotel and casino.
Just ok slots, not big payouts, but good selection of slots, and great table games at reasonable minimums ($10-$15 on up) for the pricey side of town. Neat theme hotel for families and women who like medeival charm.
Great Location...Great Service...Average Hotel
Check-in was quick and friendly. At the front desk, I asked for a last minute upgrade to Strip-View. While none were available immediately, I was given a room and upgraded within a day at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
This place has the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on. But that's where the luxury ends. The rooms are inexpensive and clean, but there are absolutely no extras. No in-room safe, no coffee pot, no mini-bar, plastic cups instead of glasses. This was not a problem for me... just remember you're not paying Bellagio prices.
The best thing about this place is the LOCATION. You can easily get to six other casinos without needing your car. The Excalibur casino is huge and has a great selection of slots and table games at reasonable table minimums.
The poker room is excellent... not too many poker sharks, and they offer a bonus wheel that you get to spin on selected hands... a real nice extra ( I got an extra $50 ). They also have a huge race and sports book.
Drink service was quick and frequent, even if you weren't having alcohol. I was expecting this place to be overrun with children, but this was NOT the case during our stay. They do offer an arcade area downstairs and a pool.
To sum things up... this hotel is a good value for those seeking clean rooms, good service and reasonable prices. Elegance is available elsewhere, at higher prices.
Family fun too
A large and modern casino that offers great entertainment for the kids as well as the adults. A large arcade and impressive food court will keep the kids busy and fed. The Krispy Creme Donut shop is a delicious favorite.
The Tournament of Kings Dinner Show is a very entertaining attraction for the whole family. Although a little pricey and not the greatest of feasts the actual tournament and show is worth the cost. Lots of action, stunts and audience involvement will please almost any child or teen.
