Excalibur Hotel & Casino
- What's Included
The Excalibur Hotel is a good, affordable choice for a Las Vegas Strip hotel. It's a little on the older side but if the price is right, it's well worth it. You can also upgrade to one of the 2000 newly renovated Widescreen Rooms which are much nicer than the Standard Rooms. If you are looking for good value on the Strip, also check out the amazingly renovated Tropicana right across the street from the Excalibur.
Excalibur is a kingdom where Medieval meets magical, transporting you back to the medieval days of King Arthur with a 265 foot-high bell tower standing guard over the moat, the large castle entrance will enchant you with action, adventure, and value for the whole family. Planted on the south end of the Strip next to the Luxor, the Excalibur is a symbol of this hotel's firm placement in the Las Vegas mix. Enjoy complimentary monorail service between Excalibur, Luxor and Mandalay Bay.
I have given Excalibur positive reviews in the past but not this time. Just returned from what was I believe our 8th stay at this resort in the past several years. It will be our last. We continue to get less and less but get charged more and more. Not worth it. Many MANY other options for resorts on the strip and the Excalibur has definitely lost their edge in keeping a customer feeling valued. Their resort fee is ridiculous. We've never had to actually pay it before - and this time they charged us $34 a night. What did that money get me? Access to a pool I don't use, access to wifi I didn't need and a fitness centre I didn't use. I might as well have lit that money on fire. In the past we have always received a coupon for two free drinks in check in. We got nothing this time. In the past we've been comped meals, coffee, and resort fees. This time? Nothing. Did I spend (and lose) money in their casino? I absolutely did. My end of things didn't change. The Excalibur's sure did. The cost for their buffet has gone up quite a bit as well - to pay for the renovation I suppose - but good quality hasn't. In the past the concierge has gone above and beyond. This time they were less than helpful.It's those little things that make a customer feel valued. It's those things that guarantee return visits. Sorry but you've lost us as customers. I don't mind paying for things if I feel I'm getting value for my money but I do like to feel somewhat valued as a customer. And Seth (the manager who responds to the negative reviews with a "canned" response) - the cookie cutter response everyone gets on a negative review just further emphasizes my point that this hotel doesn't truly value their clients. I've read the reviews and see I'm not the only one feeling this way about the current state of the Excalibur. Definitely going downhill and in a city of "has beens" this hotel is becoming just that.
wishing I had stayed else were it took 8 trips from my room on the 9th floor to reception for them to sort out my key and the fact that you have to pay $10 each time you use the pool in this hotel is a rip off every thing was extra to be honest I would liked to stay home instead of going here a waste of money and time
We booked this place on a friends recommendation as a reasonably priced hotel on the Strip. In comparison to the other hotels on the strip the cost was the lowest of them all so thought is was worth trying. The hotel is huge! The first thing that hit us was the strange smell that is pumped through the hotel. Day or night its there... it can make you feel quite sick at times. There are plenty of places to eat but at a price. We ate in the Italian restaurant one evening. We basically had to have the same meal as what ever you order is 2 portions (you cannot order a single portion). It was a bit strange... thank heaven for Dennys which is about a 10 minute walk up the strip. The bedroom was large with 2 queen size beds. The room and en-suite were clean an tidy. The room had air conditioning which worked a treat. My only criticism are the resort fees. $33 a day for what? You can make a local phone call from your room (very useful as I know no one in Vegas) and the wifi (there is free wifi for visitors so why do the guests have to pay) Unfortunately all the hotels on the strip charge the same amount so why not just put up the price of the room and have no extras added?TOP TIP - if you're getting a taxi from the airport tell the driver you have visited Vegas before and that you want to go the short way - not under the underpass... We didn't know this and were charged $35 for would should have been a $14 journey. Also download the Uber App - we used it all the time and its brilliant. You know how much the journey is going to be before you take the ride. Very hand for visiting the Shopping Malls etc and the Excalibur have a dedicated Uber pick up point. All in all I wont be rushing back - the smell is really off putting!
Having never been to Las Vegas we were concerned as none of our friends who have been to Las Vegas could tell us anything about this hotel. We needn't have worried. We were the first to be dropped off after leaving the airport.The hotel is massive with a really grand entrance. Regrettably checking in was a tedious process with over 100 people queuing. Our clean room however, although considered standard was ample for our needs with the only downside of not having a kettle. When we asked at reception we were told this was a luxury item!! LOLThe hotel is at the bottom of the strip which meant that my wife Julie and I could enjoy a walk all the way to Freemont stopping and visiting every hotel on the way!As expected the ground floor was basically a casino and there were ample eating places throughout the hotel.Regrettably time constraints meant that we didn't get chance to see the hotel shows but feedback from others was very positive.
This was a last minute booking as I wanted to try this hotel for the first time. I have stayed at other MGM properties and the Excalibur was a quiet enjoyable stay for me. However, the only thing I didn't care for was the decor in my room. Although my room was clean and spacious enough, I felt like it was never remodeled and the decor just seemed very old. The staff working at the Luggage area of the hotel were very quick, friendly and helpful. I checked in at the VIP area of the registration desk for Mlife members and everything went smooth with a quick check-in. This hotel also has a really fabulous pool area. This is a great hotel for families or anyone on a smaller budget.
