Just returned from a long weekend ( for Kentucky derby) at golden nugget. Had a regular smoking room with two double beds. Room was in excellent shape and always kept clean by staff.
We used pool briefly. What an amazing pool! Shark/fish tank in center for you to watch while you swam around it. There is also an adult pool on the second deck where you have to reserve lounges and chairs if you are going to use that pool, but it was booked up for our entire stay. Did walk up and check it out. Would have been worth the $20 to book a lounge for the day.
The casino is quite large ( like most of them). I am a smoker and it did not seem overly smokey. Table games were lower in the am..like $5 black jack which was nice. Prices rise through the day but they do at most casinos.
All staff that we met were extremely pleasant and accommodating .
The " freemont street experience" is right outside the door. And it is an " experience". Really enjoyed it for one evening but then we were pretty much done with it. We are both in our mid 50's so that may have something to do with it. It is a wildly active areas that is quite a few blocks long. Many impersonators roaming around, ie, pee wee Herman, mr t, Michael Jackson, prince, kiss members . Fun to watch. Music ( live) playing in different parts of the street. Lazar show above the street was really spectacular.
All in all it was a great trip. We always stay on the strip when we come to Vegas so wanted to do something different. The GN hotel is a great place to stay and would recommend it, if you are wanting to stay in the freemont area.
Can't report on many restaurants. Only ate at cafe, which is similar to all hotel cafes. Breakfast, lunch and dinner served 24 hrs. Food was fine.
The sports book is pretty small so we ended up watching the derby in a bar right next to it. Can't remember the name of the bar but it has live music at night.
Cab trip back and forth to strip was about $50 including tip.
Would recommend this hotel if you want to party til the wee hours of the morning and hang out on freemont street. It's a perfect place for that.if, on the other hand , you would like a bit more sedate surroundings but are curious about the freemont street areas, I would suggest a hotel on the strip ( ie, bellagio, aria, venitian, palazzo ) and then take a cab to the freemont area, just to see how crazy it is. That would be our plan for the next trip. Have your cab drop you off at the golden nugget. Great place to start your journey of freemont. Then you can come back to nugget and easily get a cab back to your hotel. Enjoy!!!
