“Very nice off-strip location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Many people only go to Las Vegas to stay and play on the Strip. Others want a nice place to gamble, and visit a few sites, and get great value. Sam's Town is the later. Their prices are very reasonable. They have a laser/water show in their central Mystic Falls Park, as well as dining options and a central bar. In the many times I have stayed here in past years, I have not been disappointed. Not a gourmet buffet, but again, the price is right. However, you'll want to watch for long lines - the locals love this place, and offers abound. Use your player's card and watch for daily specials! Some shopping (see their website for offerings) and, for the family, a bowling alley in the basement! Also attached is a multiplex. Rooms are nice sized, but need some updating. Room options face either outside or toward the interior Mystic Falls Park - although the interior rooms tend to go early. Be sure to request what you want when you reserve! The casino air is relatively fresh, not like some of the close-by off strip locations. Overall it's a great value for the price, the location, and the offerings. Casino play pretty much like all the others. OH, they have a free shuttle going to the Strip (Harrah's) as well as downtown to Fremont Street. So, keep the car parked and enjoy a cocktail without the hassle of parking or DUI worries as you visit the Linq or Fremont Street Experience.

Room Tip: I prefer the outside rooms only because I am claustrophobic and need to see clouds. However, many pe...

We were traveling from Salt Lake to AZ and decided to break up the drive with a lay over in Vegas. Price from Expedia was 53.00 including a 20.00 charge for 3rd person which was fair, room was clean and updated. We didn't gamble but we did eat at the Mexican food restaurant at the Hotel, it was disappointing payed 72.00 for a below average meal, but we are from AZ so should have expected it wouldn't compare.

Customer Service at check in, housekeeping, and slot attendents was outstanding. Room was immaculate. We were there for 6 comp'd nights (my sister had three nights and I had three nights). We asked if they had any complimentary upgraded rooms available so we could face mystic falls and they happily obliged. The only slightly negative thing I have to say about the casino is that the cocktail waitresses didn't come around very often in the late evening hours (11pm - 1:30am), most likely due to a limimted staff; however, the table games always had service. We both faired well in the casino, they have many video poker machines. We have been to Sam's Town many times just for a few hours at a time utilizing the shuttle service, but this is the first time we have stayed there. The age group is older, but we're no spring chickens at 52 and liked the music they played. We would definately stay here again at some point. We rented a car, and that is pretty much a must if you stay here. Having said that, it eliminated the need for taxis to go to the shows and various dinner venues, plus the taxi fare to and from the airport. We think it was a wash in cost.

Room Tip: This was our first time and we enjoyed the room facing the falls.

Stayed here for a few days for the big bingo games and overall, it was nice. The room prices were great and the rooms were clean. Gaming had a wide range of amounts which was nice. The staff was nice as well. The one thing I did not care for was the buffet. There was always a big line and looking inside, there were a lot of tables open. We could not figure out why they seat people so slow. It got to the point where we did not even try to eat there.

If you do not want on the strip, this is a clean place that is good.

We were in Las Vegas on Friday because my brother was in a serious car accident and airlifted to Vegas. Sam's Town was fairly close to the hospital so we decided to stay there. I can't tell you how thankful we are to the management and staff for getting my family rooms so that we could be close to the hospital. They even gave my sister-in-law an extended stay while my brother is in the hospital. They were helpful, kind and understanding. This is rare in todays world. I can't thank them enough.

Everything you need is at this hotel. The light show is awesome and the buffet was very good. If you are looking to just get away at a reasonable price and away from the strip then this is the place. They definitely have our future business.

Room Tip: We had a room on floor 2 which was conveniently located close to parking and the escalator.

Sams town Hotel and Gambling Hall is a quaint, family oriented property!! It's an older Hotel, yet it has all the convenience of home.
It is twenty minutes from the Strip, but there are shuttle buses that pick you up at Sams. What is so great about this property is that its self contained. There is the Century Theaters, Bowling, TGIF and a beautiful atrium that has laser shows several times a day/evening. Room rates are lower than the Strip and prices on food are more reasonable. For those who like gambling, Sams has up to date machines. They also have a great Sports area! They are situated on Boulder Highway. And there is a huge Walmart across the road.
Their breakfast buffet is reasonable, and so is the lunches/dinners. They have a cute pool area/no lifeguard! They have handicap access and non smoking rooms. Not all rooms come with a Frig, just be sure you ask! Booking on line is easy!
Sams town is one of the few hotels that still has live music. From Western music to Soul there is a little bit for everyone. The staff there treat you like family!!

Room Tip: There are three choices. I would go with the middle choice as it comes with a frig and an inside roo...

Price was okay, but there were drawbacks too. Rooms are dated and need to be remodeled. Air conditioner in my room was very loud. Location is away from the Strip and it is always a pain to get there. Also, I think the area this hotel is in is kind of raunchy. The pool is extremely small for Vegas. On the plus side, the atrium courtyard is beautiful. If you stay here, make sure and ask for a room that faces there because I was put in a room with a hideous view of some kind of mechanical equipment. Movie theatre is excellent. Decent restaurants too.

So, if you are not interested in going to the Strip and want to save some money, this might be a good place for you to stay. On the other hand, if the Strip is your destination, I'd consider shopping around for Strip hotel deals.

Room Tip: Only get a room facing the atrium courtyard
