Disappoinying stay, but hoping it was a fluke.
Incredibly disappointed with our stay. I have stayed at the El Cortez before and have had great stays. Check-in was unusually busy for a weekday so the process took about 30 minutes. The room was 6305 and it was much smaller than what a Cabana Junior Suite looks. I think there might’ve been a mix up and we got a Cabana Deluxe room instead, but that wasn’t even the main issue. As soon as we walked in there was a smell like smoke but also something else. The room was dirty. The bathroom looked like only the toilet had been cleaned. The shower had mildew on the glass and the floor looked dirty and as if it hadn’t been cleaned at all in months. There was also mold build up around the faucet. The AC didn’t work all the time and mind you it was 108F outside. When the AC worked it smelled moldy. The refrigerator also didn’t get very cold and made a very loud buzzing noise every hour. Housekeeping never cleaned up our room even though they were on our floor when we left our room. I have never had so many issues with a stay here, so I am genuinely disappointed. I would stay here again if I was given a cleaner room with appliances that actually work. If it happens again I will complain with management but this time I’m hoping it was a fluke of just that one room.

Relatively cheap if you hold out for discounts.
I booked this hotel rather than the much cheaper one down the street because the other one offered only a shower, and no tub; when I travel I do a lot of walking and like to soak my tired muscles in a tub. When I arrived, I was told I'd gotten a free "upgrade" to a "Jr. Suite" (a slightly larger standard hotel room) across the street. Which had only a shower and no tub. I couldn't find a place near the bed to plug in my phone but luckily I travel with an extension cord. The shampoo and conditioner I used the first day were never replaced, though the second morning two small free water bottles showed up. (Luckily I paid attention and didn't mistake the $5.00 water bottles sitting on the counter for the complimentary water promised in the room description.) The fridge for my water was nice, though. It was only too loud to sleep one of the nights; I'd paid extra for a tower room hoping to be above the noise. (It was my first time in Vegas so I have no idea whether anything else would have been better. The sleazy "resort fee" was a lot lower than some other hotels nearby. Sheesh! Why not just raise the room rates so people can do honest price comparisons and pre-pay the whole rate? A friend staying in the hotel paid half the rate I did. I cancelled with another site and rebooked here to get a lower rate as the rates had changed (on both sites at the same time.)

Good 6.0
Deposit amounts and schedules are not clearly defined and somewhat confusing. When I asked for clarification from the swing/graveyard shift supervisor I was met with resistance and eventually major attitude and unprofessionalism. I’ve worked in hospitality industry in Las Vegas for over 25 years and have never been so rude to a guest or witnessed such unprofessionalism ever. This has been a difficult review to write due to the fact that every other experience I had at the El Cortez was positive and pleasant. Many thanks to the following departments who went above and beyond without hesitation or my asking which made my stay a good one as my reasons for my staycation was not for fun but for necessity: Thank you for your understanding and good customer service to: The Hotel Manager, Housekeeping both day and swing shift, the restaurant graveyard host (girl you know who you are and our conversation was AMAZING :)) and last but not least the graveyard engineer that came to secure my window and also place a stick in the window to make sure I felt safe and calm my nerves due to my past trauma. He also managed to take the opportunity to make me laugh which at that point was what I needed most of all! Thank you again from room 2224 🤗

Poor 2.0
Staying at this hotel was the worst experience I have ever had at a hotel stay! I do not recommend staying at this hotel! They are racist against Latino/ Hispanics!! They accused my cousin to stealing a laptop which later turn out to be iPod! Head of security Alex ensure he or his brother stole it and that they had footage! Or to leave the iPod behind with no charges! But cousin was so sure he or his brother didn’t take anything they wanted to see the footage!We had to wait 2 hours for the police to show up because they didn’t want to show us anything unless the police was involved. And kept telling us they were on there way. Which we ended up calling ourselves the police so we get this situation fix.In the meantime recall we all stayed at as a family making us a total of 11 people including my Twin Boys of 7 Months. The total process took 4hours!! Which they ask for their social security number. We finally got to see the footage and the man who stole the iPod looks a regular caucasion 50 year old man!! Nothing like my cousins. They are young 21-28 years old. They could not give us any explanation only that they were sure it was one of my cousins. At the end of the day we lost time for our trip to CA and we were emotional scared about the situation. They knew they had the wrong guy and end up letting them go!! They had already ruin our vacation and our Thanksgiving Day!! Never staying there again their racist and will accuse you of robbery!!

Very good 8.0
This is my first stay at El Cortez. With the 'resort fee' increase for casinos on the strip, I decided to have another go downtown where the fees are more reasonable. The last time I stayed downtown was at the D. They have great rooms, but can be noisy with the D.J. stage next to it, so this time I opted to stay a little further off the Fremont action at El Cortez. Reviews said to go for the tower rooms so I did. It's a little extra, but you get a big room with either two queens or a king. I guess the room either face Fremont or the mountains. My window faced the mountains, so it was quiet. I don't know how the rooms are that face Fremont. A real plus here is the refrigerator and a coffee machine. That's a first for me. The king bed is firm and not a pillow-top, but you won't have a sore back from too saggy a mattress either. Plenty of storage and an ironing table and iron, blow dryer, desk, chair, sofa, and coffee table. The decor is a little dated, as is the casino area. Ventilation is good both in the room and casino. This hotel also offers a free ride back to the airport, but you need to reserve your time at the desk. The Deuce bus stop is about two blocks away and the SDX bus stop is a little further at Binnions. SDX is the way to go if you are headed to the LV convention center. If you are looking for a buffet, you might want to try the Fremont. Dinner with tip will run you about $20 per person. Big, quiet rooms with a fridge and free coffee is a nice perk.
