The class of downtown

very good buffet. room quality depends on the tower selected. Awesome pool area although very crowed usually. Decent video poker and a nice area to play.

Good Casino and Hotel

I stayed at the Golden Nugget for my 21st birthday and was impressed from the moment we walked in the door. The casino and other areas of the hotel are very beautifully decorated. We booked a room and paid an extra $20-40 per night to be upgraded to a parlor suite. Our AC was broken when we got to the room but maintenance fixed it very quickly.

The casino is the most beautiful on Fremont street and has average games. The video poker is pretty good. I won about $100 from playing VP for just a few minutes. Also, I never had a losing session of craps and one night I played until 4 am. The only game where I lost a lot of money was blackjack. All in all, I was only $50 down after many hours of gambling.

Overall, I think this is the best hotel on Fremont Street, but there are better odds in other casinos, but better than the Strip for sure!

Nugget still a good find

Still the nicest hotel on Freemont street, the rooms seem just average. The pool and buffet are excellent. The casino is a little tight, but does have 8/5 bonus video poker for a quarter. The poker room is usually pretty busy and there are some good coupons in the ACG book for the Golden Nugget.

So Disappointed

Probably our 11th or 12th visit to the Golden Nugget - it will be our last. Paid way too much money for a room with a shower that is almost impossible to get in and out of, a bathroom with no towel bars, a hairdryer that had to be replaced twice, a safe that wouldn't open one night as we were on our way out (got to spend an hour of our evening "watching" security people attempt to open it), and almost no easy-to-reach electrical outlets. In order to access our floor, we had to use our keycard in the elevator. More than 1/2 the time, the keycard didn't work, so we would have to trek over the the VIP office to have it re-keyed so that we could get to our room. All too often when we got to our room, again, the keycard was very "stubborn" and on one occasion we had to again return to the VIP center to get one that functioned. Way too much work for what was supposed to be a fun get-away. For the price we paid, we will be trying a different hotel on our next visit to Las Vegas. Very disappointing and frustrating.

update

This is an update on their "FE Fee". Thats what they are calling it. Not a resort fee. Again my ratings are based on their downtown competitors. They have a shark tank that you can swim through
and the huge gold nugget. In addition you can purchase gold there from a machine.

Good casino and hotel

My ratings are based on its downtown competitors. Its players club is not that generous, and its best vp is 8/5. It has the best rooms, pool area and side attractions in downtown. The best amenities, I like their breakfast buffet, mmm smoked salmon. They may start charging a resort fee,
So you may want to try it before it becomes more expensive.

jewel of freemont

At least the hotel is a jewel. The casino is crowded and small like most downtown places. The poker room is o.k. but only runs 1/2 NL - 2/4/L and some tourneys. They used to run 3-6 but they don't try to hard at it these days but binion's has started running more limit games lately. The nugget does have 8/5/bonus V.P. but don't expect many comps from playing there.

Nugget is tight

Went to the Nugget in early March of 2013 and had a very mediocre experience. Slot machines were cold as ice and stayed that way for three days and two nights. Hotel was hosting a conference and must have turned the machines off. I was quite unhappy with my experience and I will not be coming back.

Love The Nugget

Probably the classiest hotel/casino on Fremont Street.

Great table games, slots, and all around atmosphere. The dining options are good as well. They have a very good cafe, and a solid buffet which is one of the better ones in downtown Vegas.

Make sure you check out the large Golden Nugget while you're there.

Great Downtown Hotel

Nice rooms for the $, Super pool area, lively casino with a good mix of slot machines, my wife did pretty well playing slots. Of course the Fremont Street Experience canopy is right outside the door, a must see. The Golden Nugget is like being on the strip with all the advantages of downtown.

Cleanest Property Downtown & Outstanding Pool Area

I happen to be paralyzed and in a wheelchair, but fly out several times a year to enjoy Downtown Vegas which for me is much more accessible, convenient and safer than getting around the Strip. I often venture into casinos alone as my friends do not share my interest in sportsbook wagering and I can only sit with them at 21 table for a couple of hours before I get restless.

There is a lot to like about the Golden Nugget -- along with the El Cortez, it has my favorite sportsbook (Ed is an exemplary employee) that is always clean, up-to-date and provides a lot of wagering options, including futures. They also provide free drink tickets to the nearby bar which provides quality beverages prepared by expert mixologists (my friend loved her Pina Coladas). As an added bonus (for me anyways), the Golden Nugget cocktails waitresses have my favorite uniforms which accentuate the abundant cleavage of the servers.

One important comparison is after a trip last year where a couple of wagers won while I was on the flight home, I sent my Golden Nugget ticket in as directed and received a check in less than 2 weeks. I sent a winning Binion's ticket on the same day and didn't receive a check for about 2 months.

What impresssed me most about the Golden Nugget is how clean it is and how well the property is maintained.

It also has a large pool area that is nicer than many of the famous resorts on the Strip and I always enjoy the tropical fish and shark displays.

The Golden Nuggest marketing and casino promotions department is also on the ball with regular offers for discounted rooms and clever special events/entertainment.

It could walk, I would probably stay more often at the Golden Nugget, but it is a little too big and spread out like the Strip resorts for me to get around the property easily in my wheelchair and get in and out of my room to Fremont Street quickly.

But overall, they do things right and first class at the Golden Nugget and it is easy to see why many people consider this resort the best place to stay in Downtown Vegas. Overall, it attracts a nicer clientele with fewer vagrant types hanging around the property.

Great Offers

I am always careful about staying at casinos that have great deals because it usually means the hotel is horrible to stay at. But this hotel is nice. It could use an upgrade but for the price it is a nice little hotel and casino.

Best Hotel Downtown!!

It'd been several years since we last stayed at the GN so we decided it was time to re-visit one of our favorite Hotels in Vegas. Booked two Gold Club Rooms at a great price for my wife and I and another couple last August for a Feb. 2012 stay. We loved the VIP perks associated with the Gold Club Rooms and the rooms themselves were awesome, as nice as any place we've stayed on the strip. The Gold Club Rooms were in the Gold Tower with elevators right by the casino and close to Freemont Street. No one could access the Gold Club floors (16 & 17) unless they had a Gold Club Card to insert in the elevator control panel slot below the Gold Club floor buttons which was a nice security feature. Our room on the 16th floor overlooked the pool area with a great view of the mountains in the distance.
From the friendly VIP check-in, to free wi-fi, turn-down service, free daily newspapers, free coffee, free bottled water, free fruits and snacks all day long, tv in the bath, dvd/cd player, big screen HD tv, free use of the spa facilities (a big thanks to the friendly attendants), and the spotlessly clean rooms (Great housekeeping dept.) this trip thanks to the great accomadations and the friendly staff throughout the GN turned out to be the best we've ever experienced in Vegas (approx 25 trips over the years).
We're done with the strip and their wall to wall crowds, jacked up meal prices, 6/5 blackjack, tight slots, obnoxious employees and patrons and the long distances between properties. From now on it's the Golden Nugget and friendly downtown for us.
One thing a lot of Vegas tourists fail to do is tip the housekeeper, these ladies work harder for less money then anyone in Vegas. By leaving a few bucks each morning with a thank you note these ladies will make the extra effort to insure a spotless room with new toiletries everyday.
Parents, instead of indulging your own self-gratification take your kids to Disneyland, Disneyworld, Six Flags, or a National Park, or anywhere for vacation other then Vegas where there's public drinking, gambling, smoking, porn slappers on every corner, and foul language heard every 30 seconds by drunken 20 something's when walking down the strip at night. Vegas tried the family vacation destination thing in the mid 90's and IT FAILED!! Vegas is a Disneyland for adults not children. The only Hotel that caters to families is Circus Circus and it's a dump.

Golden Nugget Rocks!

The Golden Nugget is located on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas. My husband and I travel to Vegas at least twice a year and we love the downtown area! In fact sometimes we do not even make it to the strip. The Golden Nugget is hands-down our favorite hotel downtown, on the strip or even in boulder. You have to see it to believe the gorgeous rooms, the multitude of games on the casino floor, the great resturants, the service, it's all great! And the best part is you do not have to pay a resort fee and the rates are very reasonable.

A Classy Hotel

I found the Golden Nugget several years ago and have stayed there since. The rooms are very to date and very clean. Prices are much less than the same type room on the strip and NO RESORT FEE. I love the poker room and receive a meal comp after four hours play during a day. My only complaint about the Golden Nugget is the buffet. The buffet seems to be going downhill in its quality.

Still The Nicest Downtown Casino/Hotel

I have written reviews about The Golden Nugget before but we just returned from Las Vegas and we experienced a side of The Golden Nugget that most people probably never see. First, let me say that The Golden Nugget is still the class of downtown. The rooms are very nice, clean, all the restaurants are great, and their pool and associated water features are wonderful. I have only 2 small issues with The Golden Nugget. The first is that if you stay in the wrong tower such as the Carson Tower, you have to spend 15 minutes walking from your room to anywhere. The other problem I have which is not an issue with many people, is that it seems to ALWAYS be crowded. The crowds are a bit too much for me. There were times I couldn't even find a place to eat. But I suppose that comes with such a nice place. We checked in on a Saturday night to stay 3 days. We went straight to bed at 11 pm and two hours later my wife awoke with terrible chest pains and pressure. This of course, changed our entire trip. I called downstairs and she was rushed to the hospital. From the time I called, I was amazed how well their security and medical people responded. There was a security guy in our room in 1 minute. 2 minutes later their CMTs were there. 2 minutes after that the ambulance came and rushed her to Valley Hospital. Her heart rate was very high so they had to shock her heart to get it back down. That was quite harrowing at the time but in retrospect and after being informed about her condition, I realize it wasn't all that unusual. She stayed in the hospital for 4 days while they did every imaginable heart test to determine if there was blockage or damage. In the end, it was the least scary result. Atrial fibrillation. No damage, no heart attack, she may need medication to control it. This was great news. And the people at Golden Nugget were so nice. Although we had a car, they insisted I go with her in the ambulance and they would send a car to pick me up. Through the next 3 days as I came and went, the security people always wanted to know how she was doing. I was so impressed so as you can imagine, I have nothing but good things to say about The Golden Nugget.

Downtown Gold

If you're going to stay in downtown Las Vegas and you want the best place, Golden Nugget is still the one. The rooms are always very nice and clean. And although a bit crowded, the casino is just my size! I love a casino I can see across. If I can walk in one side and see the other side, I'm in heaven! They have a decent poker room, nice rooms, good service, and they're in the heart of downtown. All their restaurants I've tried are very good. The buffet is great and we went to an Italian restaurant there where the waiters stopped for 3 minutes about every 45 minutes and sang. It was a blast.

The Golden Nugget is still pretty golden.

Gordie Brown - Talented

I visit the Nugget every time I go Downtown... Something you just have to do.

When I was last there, we went as we won Gordie Brown Tickets. I had heard nothing about him, but man, this guy is funny. Some of his impressions are bang-on, others are good, not great. High energy and the band is awesome.

The casino is nice, but it feels cramped; maybe the low ceiling, but hey, all places are like that on Fremont Street... Decent Video Poker at the bar, quick drinks, somewhat pleasant staff.

Buffet was not so great. Decent, but worthwhile with the 2-4-1 in the ACG...

Golden Nugget is the best!

We have been coming to the Golden Nugget for several years now and we love it each and every time. The rooms are so beautiful, the hotel is glam, the staff is always kind and helpful. It is our very favorite hotel downtown and we prefer to stay there than on the strip. I cannot begin to describe the food in all of their restaurants, so delicious! Thanks for making all our stays so great!

The Best of Downtown But.....

Ok, this is the best hotel downtown, but even with the shark tank and all of the glitter in the main areas, this is far from being the Venetian, or even the Mirage. The hotel itself has grown over time, so you are going to be walking down long halls, turning corners, then finding yourself in the original part of the hotel with smaller rooms, older bathrooms and an air conditioner that doesn't really work. And yet one floor down, and a bit over, you might be in the part built more recently with a larger room and a newer bathroom.

The casino is comparable to anything on the strip...the newest slots and busy table games. But if you really want this, you should probably stay on the strip. If I'm downtown, I want a smaller casino, more locals (and not tourists and frat boys) and a little bit of historic grit around the edges. If you find yourself in the middle of the casino floor at the Nugget, you could really be at any of a dozen strip hotels, which may or may not be a good thing.

Golden Nugget a Jewel

The Golden Nugget is the jewel of downtown if not of all Las Vegas. The rooms are beautiful. The pool area is amazing and nothing beats "swimming with the fishes". Dining is superb and the buffet is a great value although try the buffet at Main Street Station too. The Carson Street Cafe which is the coffee shop is open 24 a day and has excellent food. They usually have $5 blackjack tables in the morning but you are a stones through from other hotels that have $5 BJ all day. We only go to the strip to see a show or two. I've stayed at the so called "fancy places" on the strip but to me nothing beats the Nugget. Also, go for dinner at Hugo's Cellar at the Four Queens next door. They have the most amazing salad ever which they make at your table to order.

Fantastic!

My wife and I spent 5 nights at the Nugget in early October.All I can say is WOW! The place sparkled.I loved the brightness and cleanliness of the whole property.Stayed in a Rush Tower room..beautiful! Food was excellent too! You must try the Grotto for italian..Yum!
Maid service was excellent and the whole "non-smoking" Rush Tower won me over in 1 day! Downtown is a blast and we will always stay there on future visits.Do yourself a favor...Do the Nugget!

A special place in my heart

The Golden Nugget is like a second home to me. I have spent my 21st birthday, my engagement, my wedding weekend, plus countless other trips, all at the Nugget. For as much time as I have spent here, you'd think that I would have a bad experience or two to tell you about. I really don't, and that is a measure of a great hotel, in my opinion.



The rooms are definitely the nicest downtown. They provide robes and hair dryers, you can request a mini-fridge, no luck on in-room coffee makers, though. The South Tower rooms are usually cheaper than the North Tower rooms... Both types of rooms are fine, but the North Tower rooms are quite a bit nicer, and the elevators are way closer to the casino and Fremont Street. What I usually do is book a South Tower (cheapest) room, and then ask for an upgrade when I check in. They're usually great about it. If you want to stay in a suite, I highly recommend the spa suite.



The pool may be one of the best in Vegas. If you don't know, it's a donut-shaped pool with a cylindrical shark tank in the middle of the donut. A tube slide runs through the shark tank and into the pool. Words can't really describe how awesome it is. I love the pool bar, too... It's open late, so you can still go out to the pool area and watch the sharks even when the pool is closed.



The food here is great. Lillie's Noodle House has great Chinese; The Grotto has awesome pizza and appetizers; Carson Street Cafe is good for late night nachos or Eggs Benedict in the morning. The buffet is overpriced for downtown; save your money and get a better buffet at Main Street Station.



The only thing bad I can say about the GN is that the gaming is pretty tight for downtown (although pretty loose compared to The Strip). Walk across the street to Binion's or The California for slots; or walk down Fremont Street to Four Queens or The Fitz for better/cheaper blackjack. The cocktail waitresses are few and far between here, too. If you want free drinks faster than you can keep up with them, head to Mermaids, a little joint catty-corner from the Golden Nugget. You can play real nickels there, and you'll be drunk in half an hour.

My favorite place in Vegas

I love the pool here with the sharks swimming right beside you. Be sure to watch out for the diver with the read me sign!



Craps here is the best in town, if not the best odds.

Nicest Property Downtown

Visited 7/11/08. Ate the breakfast buffet. A little higher priced but excellent.



The Tank (pool and area) looked fun. Huge sharks and waterslide. A must see.



They have the only single zero roulette wheel I've found. Best odds. I didn't win but others were doing good. Didn't play the slots but many people were.



The Golden Nugget has added a bar facing Fremont Street. We got enormous drinks that came with a strap to hang around our necks. Good frozen margaritas.

Class and Style

Stayed here summer 2005. Long walk to the rooms. Nice clean rooms. Buffet was great. Games paid back well. Staff was friendly and helpful.



I'll visit again. Even though this is an older property, you wouldn't know it. Very clean and classy. Full of style!
