Golden Nugget Laughlin
- What's Included
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly...The Good... Located in the middle of the action or The Freemont Street Experience, a Must See. Buffet was decent for the price. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good variety of food available right in the hotel. VIP Gold Tower Room was very clean. Hotel Security Good about keeping the numerous pan handlers from harrassing guests in front of the Golden Nugget on Freemont Street.The Bad... Located in the middle of the action, so expect to here music from the concert stage across the road (and from Freedom Street stages if on a lower floors). Older remodeled hotel, so rooms are smaller than rooms on The new Strip. Standard size for older hotel rooms. Matress just passable as comfortable. NO MINI Fridge or Microwave. Pool chairs packed against one another like sardines in a can, literally. Non-guest paid pool crashes crowd the pool so bad the guests say "screw it." So don't count on the pool. The 5 meg free internet is slowwww. Cost is around $15 a day for 10 meg speed.The Ugly..... Mini fridge fee $30 per day if you request one. Furniture in room rough from old age and use. No outlets around the headboard and night stands for cell phone charging if using phone for alarm, and surfing in bed. Mold on ceiling inside tub enclosure. I complained to VIP desk who just looked at me and offered no accommodation to remedy. Room 1617. 😢 Pictures attached.Hopefully someone will build a five star hotel close to The Freemont Street Experience, otherwise I guess I will come back as this seems to be the nicest of the Old Vegas Strip hotels.
My wife made reservations a couple months in advance and we were looking forward to our visit and stay as we live on the east coast and a trip to Las Vegas is not a just little weekend outing for us. It was actually a big anaversay trip. We checked in and explored the main floor and enjoyed an awesome steak dinner at Vic and Anthony's, inside the Golden Nugget. When we checked in were given a page of coupons that were set to expire the very next day, although we were staying for a week, and the coupons themselves were more advertising than deals. So don't let the promise of a coupon package entice you into staying here.We were not impressed by our room and the price we paid for it. The overall value of our room was just not there ( I think it was 26 something). The room was dark and dingy, the decor was dated, the carpet in the room and hallway was sticky, and the bathroom was not as impressive as we had expected, and we had view of "the big D" building complete with huge banner and that is not a good thing; but the bed was comfortable. The morning after our 1st and only night, my wife and I noticed a strong foul smell, like rotting meat that hung heavy in the air of our room. I shrugged it off, as I thought our dinner leftovers were turning (side note there was no refrigerator in our room) ... But upon closer inspection a little later the leftovers were fine and smelled good. I was using the restroom while my wife was hanging out in the room and I was shocked and scared when the sink by the door on the other side of the bathroom turned on by itself and ran for a few moments. The knobs didn't turn but it was definitely more than just a little drip from old faulty plumbing. My wife actually heard the sink running before I flushed and was concerned as she thought I had turned on the shower and was getting in after taking a shower only an hour or so before. After that my senses were tingling (in a bad way) and we agreed that we didn't want to spend our time in Vegas in this place. It was really spooky and this might be a good thing for some, but we had to leave after that. We found an overall better rate for a better room in a bigger better hotel on the strip and we are so glad we made the switch. This place is not what it once was and I don't think I'll ever be back stay at the hotel. But the the restaurants were fine and I will likely return someday for dinner again at Vic and Anthony's.
We have stayed at the Nugget several times for many years and I wont hesitate to book again for next years trip. I read all the reviews especially leading up to our trip. Our room was a premium king room on the 7th floor. It was quiet, clean and spacious. We ate at restaurants in the hotel and food and service was great. We loved sitting at the stage bar to people watch and enjoy a drink. I travel a lot and I rely on reviews and the hotels website. It is not a secret that the nugget charges a resort fee or what the fee is. Most of the hotels in Las Vegas do and many are more than the Golden Nugget with not much more or in some cases less amenites offered. My vacation is important to me, I am particular in the type of room I want so to ensure I get a king non smoking room, I pay for the VIP service and am glad to do it.Check in is easy and I dont wait in any line for the reataurants. When we were gambling in the casino, drink service was great. We had a wonderful vacation and will be back again next year.
Stayed Mid November in the Carson Tower. Originally thought it would be quiet away from Fremont St, but outdoor event area outside Friday night was very loud! Earplugs they provide barely covers noise. Also some kind of repairs were going on late one night, so heard a loud generator or compressor. Resort fee of $30 seemed a little high. Only covered really poor WiFi, the pool only open shorter hours, and one bottle of water per day. No coffee in the room, you had to wait in a long line at Starbucks. Property is well maintained and room was nice. Probably nicest place downtown, but we won't stay there again due to the noise and value.
Friday night room 1154 very noisy due to some other venue. Unable to get any rest until after 2am. I complained about the noise and was offered earplugs. Really! The next morning I went to the front desk to get a different room and was told it would be quieter Saturday night. All of the noise from the other venue was only on Friday nights. So they knew there was going to be a noise problem. On check out they only offered to subtract the Resort fee. Really! Underwhelmed all the way around.Stay somewhere else!T. J. Hite
