Golden Nugget Laughlin
- What's Included
My new hubby and I stayed at the Golden Nugget 8-18th May we travelled over from the UK to get married. We decided to stay at the Nugget as on our last trip to Vegas in 2012 we spent most of our time in Fremont Street anyway.On arrival at the hotel check in was easy no big queues (unlike when we left constant queues at reception the whole time!) I mentioned we were getting married and no comment from reception not even a congratulations! The hotel is in a great location-everything is within easy reach straight onto Fremont Street and a stage in front of the hotel with live music every night we loved that! The room was okay... we stayed in the Carson Tower it's a but dingy definitely in need of a makeover, the bath was cracked and rusty. The air con unit is so loud!!! Had trouble sleeping some nights but you get used to it after a while! The resort fee is crazy money $31 dollars a night! For 2 bottles of water daily... but the maids "don't have themOn their carts" and you have to call housekeeping EVERY day if you want your water apart fromOn the day you arrive... even though on our last day our maid gave me the water?! You also get free 5mb wifi, access to the gym and a daily newspaper. A lot of money a day just for that!Shark tank and chute was closed .. big disappoint and one day the pool was closed afternoon as the workmen were sanding the slide and there were bits of fibreglass in the pool! ... maybe that would have been a job for the evening?!The "infinity" pool is nice (if you can call it that) but again crazy money if you want to sit round the pool $45 dollars per day per sunbed or $120 dollars for a double bed but if you want one of those you also have to spend a minimum of $100 on drinks and food. Most of the beds are in the shade all day.The final not so good point is the constant pestering to go and see the new hotel near Mandalay Bay... we were offered something complimentary as we were getting married but ONLY if we went to see the new hotel! Couldn't believe it, I even got stopped in my wedding dress.Sort out the resort fee,the constant hassling offering free shows and make some effort with your guests who are celebrating something and we would return as we did have a great time, the best part of the hotel is the restaurants, we ate at Vic & Anthonys after our wedding great service, great food!
I hosted a pool party for 10. The unique shark tank and chute was the main draw. GN staff failed to disclose that the chute was closed for maintenance (for 3 months) both when I made the gazebo reservation and when I checked in with all my guests.
The Golden Nugget is the class act downtown. We were upgraded to the Rush Tower, and it was an amazing room. "The Buffet" is very good, but be hungry! The swimming pool is amazing. The Golden Nugget will be my choice when back in Las Vegas.I love Fremont Street. It is for the younger adults. It is loud and it is happening. The There is always something going on. There are many good choices for eating. It is easy and inexpensive to get out to the strip for shows, but allow time for the travel. .
I visited the golden nugget on the weekend of May 12-14. We took the upgrade to the rush tower which was very much worth it. We stayed in room 16-11. The hallways were very quiet. There were snacks by the elevator lobby. The room was a nice surprise. We had stayed at the plaza, across the street, a year before and it doesn't compare! The bathroom had double sinks and an area to sit and do your makeup with a lighted mirror. Our room had a sitting area which was very convenient when we brought our friends up for drinks. They were staying in the strip, and really liked our room, and considered staying there as well. The pool area was nice, with the hot tub. I knew it was undergoing repairs because it said so on their website. My only issue was that we went to sleep very late on Friday night..(6am Sat.). And I woke up to music from the pool area at 8am. Golden Nugget thinks of everything, as I just got up and put in some earplugs that were provided. I had an amazing birthday weekend, and my stay at Golden Nugget was wonderful. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.
Stayed 3 nights had 3 rooms in Carson Tower. Booked months in advance but upon arrival found shark slide at pool closed for repairs since January. The hotel emailed me the week before my stay but never mentioned the closure. We specifically stayed at this hotel for the pool. The pool was closed completely on one of our days. When I called to ask for a partial refund of the 30 dollar per room per day resort fee I was told it was not for pool use, and I should have checked the website for closure info.The air conditioner was very noisy and did not keep room cool. The attitude at front desk was less than courteous and We will stay elsewhere next time
