Mardi Gras Hotel & Casino
- What's Included
This was a late post ,I posted my review when I arrived home from Vegas, but TripVisor did not post it I guess? So I just remembered to post it again since I just came from a recent vacation. We checked in Oct 12, 2017 ( Thursday). We were NOT so happy with the room, it was VERY VERY DIRTY ( it was a gift , and it was a very bad decision ). It was our first time in Vegas , and since we arrived almost 11pm at night , was so tired to even complain ( we have to rest , we have kids with us) We stayed near the pool. The bathroom is dirty ( yes, very dirty , the walls , the tub and toilet bowl wasn't clean, with marks of nasty eeeww).The carpet was dirty , you can smell . They make the room dark ( in purpose) so guest will not see how dirty the room was , but still you can feel and smell. Our bed is nasty, I was itching and had some small bites the next day.Our stay in Mardi Gras Hotel was the worst. If you plan to stay , please look for another place, add a couple of more bucks . Until now , I really hate thinking how me and my kids slept on that nasty bed :(
I wanted a cheap, basic hotel during my two nights in Vegas (one of them being Thanksgiving) and the Mardi Gras fits this description.I had a room on the ground floor in a corner at the other end of the property. The room was big for just one person and I had lots of space to spread out my stuff. Bathroom has shower and toilet, the bathroom sink is outside the bathroom in the actual room. TV was working fine. The bed was made after the first night, but the dead fly on the AC was still there in plain sight, so maybe there was not too much time put into cleaning. As I sleep with earplugs, I did not experience any noise issues.I used their shuttle twice, it was on time both times and the driver was friendly, as was the security guard working the night I arrived. I usually walk everywhere, but I would not recommend walking to the Strip from the hotel as it takes easily more than half an hour and it not a very pleasant walk including very long waiting times at traffic lights. As I stayed there during Thanksgiving, I had the Thanksgiving dinner offered by the little restaurant opposite the reception. The waitress was very nice and made sure I had a good time also the following evening. The Thanksgiving dinner was a very big portion (for me), so absolutely great value, and the salad the next evening was good as well. Breakfast was in the same area (even though at check-in I had been told that it would be in a different room) and had a variation of cereal, waffles, typical American hot breakfast and a selection of baked sweets, plus coffee, tea and juices. It fares well in comparison to the other hotels/motels/hostels during my five-week trip.Many reviewers complain about the smoking in the casino section that is directly next to the small restaurant and the reception. I am a non-smoker and really grateful to EU non-smoking laws. However, we tend to forget that other countries have other laws and that smoking in restaurants can still be completely normal. If you cannot live with that, there will be problems all over Las Vegas.My biggest problem right now is that I forgot my mp3 player in my room. I contacted the hotel and was told that it had indeed been found and that I could either pick it up myself or have it send to my via UPS (no alternative there and UPS is not the cheapest option!). My faith in humanity was restored as it apparently had not been stolen from my room and I gave them an address in Washington state to send it to as I was still traveling around and changing locations a lot. Little did I know how complicated it seems to be to send a small package within the US. My stay was one month ago and the package still has not made it to its destination. Now, I have the additional trouble that I am back in Germany and have to somehow arrange the shipment from Washington to Germany, once my player manages to get out of Vegas. I really do not get the feeling that the staff is trying to provide good service in this particular respect.Bottom line is that, in my opinion, the hotel does a good job at not being pretentious: it is a basic, low price alternative, nothing more (unfortunately, it could be with some minor improvements), nothing less. I just wish they would finally be able to ship my player, as I already paid UPS for the shipment.
We pulled into the place easy enough and were checked in quickly. That’s where the good review ends. Both of our rooms were dirty and in need of blankets (my room had glitter everywhere). After calling the front desk Tyler said he would send new sheets......they never showed.
Hotel stay was ok.Nice shuttle to and from airport and to the strip (Ballys dropoff). Quick check in, room is quite spacious with sitting room when you walk in, but personally I like my tv in front of bed, clearly not the hotels fault.Was told there was a "kitchette", a little surprised to see the big kitchen area only had a refrigerator, no microwave or any other way to prepare a meal. So walked a few minutes to McDonald's for a quick bite.When I returned, I notice one clerk (Tyler) helping another guests I started asking him several questions one of them being about this so called "kitchette", he continues looking at his computer screen, after awhile I finally called him out on his rudeness, he starts getting defensive, rolls his eyes, raises his voice, no professionalism to him whatsoever. Just had to walk away before I lost my cool.Besides this rude clerk the only other negative is bathroom fan is quite loud, bed a little lumpy.I didn't hear a bunch of noise, but hotel wasn't exactly full, maybe cause of the time of year. But for one night, the price was right.
Found a good deal for this hotel on Groupon. My boyfriend and I went for an extended weekend. It's nothing super special, but was still nice. Has a shuttle to the strip (we didn't use it) and is walking distance to the monorail. Room was clean and big. We spent a short amount of time at the bar one night and you can get free drinks for playing the computer games at the bar. Would definitely consider staying here again.
