Mesquite

While on vacation in Vegas I would take a day trip out to Mesquite.

It's been about 5 years since we were out there and was wondering if there are any changes to speak of.

Will be going out again in may for 8 days and was considering a trip to Mesquite again to visit our money ;0)

Thanks,

In October of 2011, I took my mom to Vegas for her first time, and we made a day trip to St. George, UT to visit family. Mequite was the half-way point, so we made a pitstop at the Eureka Casino both ways. Seemed like a nice area with a couple casinos. Didn't really explore the casino at all, just used the facilities. However, I just read that the new Free Bet blackjack game is going to be starting up at the Eureka Casino. Not sure exactly when it will be available, but it is something worth checking out when you visit there.

The recession has hit Mesquite as well as Las Vegas. The Casablanca is still open, rooms, restaurant and casino. The Eureka and Virgin River are still open, too. One casino, the Oasis, closed and was slated for demolition a couple of years ago. Another casino was in bankruptcy. i like the Mesquite area, hope it recovers.

I am in Mesquite right now, staying at the Eureka. So far I am very impressed, the hotel is updated and very clean and the staff is great.

The pool area is surprisingly nice, even has cabanas. There is also an adjacent courtyard that is quite lovely and a good place to hang out in the early evening. I am getting a massage this afternoon for half the price I would pay in Vegas.

I was surprised by the casino too, it's busy with all the latest machines and we won $400 on Quick Hits last night. We ate twice at the Steakhouse, it was super good and reasonably priced.

The guys have been golfing every day and are enjoying the courses, they have some really nice ones here. That about sums it up, we will definitely return. Still can't wait to hit Vegas tomorrow for a few days though, lol!

When we stop in Mesquite we stay at the Casablanca. Rooms are basic, but clean, I think there's a frig in the room, too. We go when the pool is still open, it's a truly lovely one. The coffee shop is okay and the prices are pretty good. The vp is decent as are the table games, have come out ahead gambling there. I don't know about golf or bingo, sorry.

We stayed for two nights in Mesquite in December. We stayed at Eureka, which was extremely cozy and nice. The remodeling has added a nice touch to the rooms. This is now the only place where we will stay in Mesquite, since we feel it has the best rooms. They also have an outdoor jacuzzi that you can use even in the winter. While in Mesquite, we take easy day trips to Zion National Park in the morning and come back by afternoon, stopping in St. George for lunch. You can also visit the Snow Canyon State Park, an easy 45 minute drive from Mesquite. Snow Canyon rivals Valley of Fire, in my opinion, with its scenery. You can also take hikes in the BLM lands around St. George and see beautiful mountain scenery. We include a trip to Mesquite with each visit to Las Vegas.
