We enjoyed our stay at the Golden Nugget. We were pleased with the rooms, especially considering that this is an older hotel. You wouldn't know it from the rooms, and we stayed in the older tower (the other one has been relatively newly renovated). The Golden Nugget is not on the strip, but on Fremont Street. It was cool to see the Fremont Street Experience. We just drove to the strip, because you can park for free at most of the casinos/hotels along the strip.
One of the main reasons we stayed here was because of the shark tank in the pool. According to several online sources, it is one of the top 10 hotel pools in the world. We thought the shark tank was pretty awesome. There are several varieties of sharks in the tank, and the waterslide that goes right through the middle of the tank. Would definitely recommend if you have kids or if you just like sea life like us.
We didn't come to gamble, but to see the sights, and we thought this was a good value for the price, a pretty good location in relation to everything (if you have a car), and a neat unique experience at the pool.
One of the negatives was the incredibly long line to check in and check out. It took at least 45 minutes each time. It would have been nice to have free wi-fi too...we went down the street to Krispy Kreme to use their free wi-fi.
