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.
Stayed for a week in October with the family.Check in was swift and efficient.The rooms are clean and the beds incredibly comfortable.My only gripe with the room is that the shower was very slow to drain.As people have said before, the casino floor can be very smoky, even for a smoker like myself it was hard to bear at times, especially when walking through on a morning.The food court is really lacking, meaning that I tended to eat next door at NYNY most of the time because the choice was better.The pool area is large though the main pool was closed when we visited because it was off season.I would stay again because it's in a location that works for me when I visit Vegas.
a little dated compared to all the other hotels we went into .. carpet is old etc.. BUT the bedrooms were lovely and clean and spacious.... plenty of food places and drinking places ... its almost at the end of the strip to . so good starting place .oh and the receptionist when we booked in was totally THICK...took us about half hour book in after a queueing for like an hour ..
Pros: good price, good access to south strip, bed comfortable with nice linens, room fairly clean. Pedestrian walkways connected the hotel to Luxor, New York New York, and Tropicana. Cons: most of hotel smelled like smoke, no fridge or coffee maker in room, all nearby food options incredibly overpriced (welcome to Vegas!), no breakfast, casino rundown and sort of sad. My first time in Vegas. Our first experience walking in the hotel/casino was the overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke and the timeshare women who try to trick you with a free show (in exchange to listening to a hard-sell presentation the following day). The casino and hotel hallways showed their age, but the room itself was pretty nice. Not super smokey on the 11th floor. No charge for early check-in, which was nice after a red-eye. The bathroom had soap, body lotion, and shampoo, as well as a hairdryer. The tv did not list any of the channels.The pedestrian walkway to Tropicana was closed during our stay which was slightly inconvenient. The free tram from the hotel to the Luxor and Mandalay Bay was convenient if heading south.Expect to pay a premium for food in the hotel: two breakfast sandwiches and 1 coffee from the food court was $20. We hated to pay $3 for crummy coffee, but Vegas is a town meant to separate its captive audience from their money, and if you're going to visit, you have to accept that. In terms of activities, most of the things I was interested in seeing were pretty far north of the hotel. It's a very long hike weaving in and out of casinos as you head north (we logged 11 miles that day and only made it to Caesars Palace, including taking the free trams). If you plan on taking advantage of some things like the Bellagio fountains and Mirage volcano, I would suggest planning to take the bus or monorail, or staying closer to the center strip.
This was a good spot for us in that, it was close to the tram (so we could get and unlimited ticked for $12) we had a casino downstairs, it was still on the "strip" but was far enough to not have much traffic, had fair parking, great options for food, and the buffet food ($36 per person for all day) was actually very good....did I mention you stay in a castle? The rooms are not up to date, no fridge or microwave....but for the price, I wasn't looking for that! There is smoking, but it seemed to be not as bad during the day. We had a great time, no trouble at all with people messing with our vehicle (as I said roadtrip...so we had a carrier on our Explorer). We loved it!
I returned to Excalibur for my third trip September 27 to October 1 and had two Resort View rooms in Tower 2 booked since April 2016. At the time, I made a request for two rooms on floors 26-28 either connecting or as close to each other as possible with the lowest possible odd number. This is largely because I know the resort well and knew the lowest numbered odd rooms in Tower 2 have the best views of the Strip. When I arrived and checked-in, we were assigned 22229 an 26207 which are obviously four floors apart. I was extremely annoyed about this development and was assured that we would be moved from 22229 to the 26th floor the next day after 11am. Suffice to say, that never happened despite checking on numerous occasions. This policy is not good enough. For a 4,000 room hotel the least you could do is to allocate rooms as close to each other when someone books more than one room. Apart from the disappointment of being so far apart in the hotel, the stay was average. Pros: The beds are still extremely comfortable and the rooms are in relatively good shape.The food court is still an excellent place to dine even though McDonald’s is no longer there. Housekeeping staff do a very good job keeping rooms clean and tidy.Wi-Fi service is flawless around the resort. Cons: On three occasions in five days there were room service trays left outside rooms close to mine which were left there for hours and overnight! Doesn’t housekeeping care about these things? The discount book I previously received at check-in in 2013 has been discontinued.The annoying Time Share people are still downstairs adjacent to Baja Fresh. Waitress service in the casino is virtually non-existent. I got much better service next door at New York New York.After this experience it’s unlikely I will return to Excalibur. I think I will spend a bit more an stay elsewhere on the Strip.
