Mardi Gras Hotel & Casino
- What's Included
Hey travel-family, took my family on a weekend getaway and found this deal on Groupon. Well it was very disappointing to say the least. This so-called hotel, looks like a motel, and from the look at the pictures I saw, i was deceived about the size of this "casino". It maybe has 20-30 machines. There is a large mirror on the back wall, to make it look like more machineshop. The room was dated, and like alot of urban-areas alot of homeless people around. Glad it was only for 2days.
we needed a hotel for our first two nights in the US after a late night arrival. It was so cheap but you don't get more than what you pay for. In short: it's clean and everything you need is in the room. Equipment and everything is basic, no luxury but it's warm, quiet and you are close to the main attractions in Vegas.
We were in Las Vegas on New Years Eve, ready to leave, and at the last minute decided to stay the night. We started searching for hotels, and found the Mardi Gras. I was expecting a real hotel/casino, but what I found was a motel with a couple slot machines in a smoke filled room.Staff was standoffish, the crowd was iffy. I will say, the room was large, and we spent the night without incident, and got our $5 key deposit back the next morning without a problem...
We were in the lobby using the business center computer while Eddie was on shift. He was super helpful in getting us logged in but best of all he was funny and treated us like friends of his. Always appreciated. The wifi situation leaves a bit to be desired but only staying one night it didn't bother us too much.
While we fully intended to travel "budget", this place was cheap. There is a large difference between affordable accomodations and this cheap flea motel. The only positive is it is located off the strip in close proximity to the Convention Center and Monorail station, which is convenient to travel up and down the east side of the strip and walk around. Unfortunately and specifically, the negatives are as follows. Upon check in they were evicting an intoxicated man from his room. The casino was the size of a short hallway with mirrors to give the appearance of a larger room. The elevator lost power intermittently, was smelly and only fit two people. Not ADA accessible. It felt unsafe and the staff seemed put out albeit superficially friendly. They had several signs in the lobby indicating the hotel would not call you via telephone to request your credit card information. When I asked if the credit card scam was a common occurrence, the front desk staff told me sternly the hotel staff does not request this information over the phone and to come down to the lobby if this occurred. I wondered why they need patrons to come to the lobby if you provide all your information upon check in? The room while very spacious was very dated and worn looking. The bed skirt had holes, the towels were old and it was clear no furniture had been moved in a long time for the purpose of vacuuming. The bathroom was very small and the shower had an old inoperative soap dispenser in it. There was trash under the bed. The A/C unit on the wall was not responsive to adjustments of the knob. There was a non operational thermostat on the wall. Worst of all, we pulled the sheets back to lounge on the bed before sleep and while we lay on the bed for only several minutes there began to emerge from under the fitted sheet bed bugs! They were likely drawn out by our body heat. When I pulled back the fitted sheet the mattress pad underneath was soiled and had hair on it, along with more bed bugs. Did I mention the fitted sheet did not completely cover the old looking and lumpy mattress? When we needed the phone to call the front desk we noticed the phone was missing several buttons aside from the numeric pad. The staff on the phone seemed annoyed and told us to come down to the lobby. Once in the lobby, we had to wait in line and after 20 minutes we were offered a different room. We declined a different room based on the fact bed bugs are rarely found in only one room. Did you know bed bugs sucks your blood while you sleep and can survive a year without eating? They can travel home with you and are difficult to eradicate. Not worth the trouble! We found much better accomodations right down the street.
