We really enjoyed our stay at binions. It was our 2nd trip to Las Vegas. The staff was very helpful. A room change was necessary but, it posed no problem, it was done immediately. The bell captain, Willie, was very knowledgeable about the hotel & surroundings. We went to him for everything we needed. We're looking forward to our next visit in 2008.

Our vacation getaway!

This was our first vacation to Las Vegas in 11 years. We were told by several of our friends that downtown Las Vegas was a great bargain, so we stayed at the golden nugget hotel on our spring break last march 2005. It was a great and fun experience; however we constantly went to the horseshoe casino to gamble. We found your casino to have the best and most liberal slots in the whole downtown area, and won on the dollar slots more than any other casino that we gambled at. We also ate at your steakhouse in the downtown hotel. This turned out to be a surprise that we did not expect. Starting with our very caring and suave host who seated us with a wonderful table that gave a stunning view of the Las Vegas skyline, to our waited (pat) who was so very smooth and professional. The meal (steaks) was better than my wife and I had eaten at any of the other so called better steakhouses. I can't say enough how happy we were with the total experience. We are planning to go to Las Vegas again this July, along with a group of family and friends and you can be sure that we will be guests at your casino and steakhouse.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Binions Horseshoe Casino and Hotel

Awful, awful, awful!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We had reservations since January and they still tried to make 3 of us sleep in a room with ONE double bed. They had already given all the single people that had come in that day all the rooms with TWO beds in them!! We asked for non-smoking and they gave us smoking, ok so big deal , but when we got to the room and opened the door it was if someone had just smoked in there. Also our shower head was held on by a twist tie, yep I said Twist Tie! Very stinky , smelly rooms and the hallway had the ceiling falling down. I wrote to the hotel and got the response that a new company now owns it and will look into the matter, then they invited me for a FREE STAY!??! Are you serious? When I went that night to tell them about my shower head (it wouldnt stay still and faced the wall once turned on), the front desk was sooo rude and said, that we werent the only ones in this situation. I found out later that the people next door to my room had no air-conditioning for the last 3 nights and there were 4 in their party in a room with ONE double bed and they had put reservations since Dec. His kids slept on the floor (no extra roll-aways). At least we got a roll-away. Never again.

Loving it at the Shoe!!!

from SuitedQueens
Stayed at Binions Horseshoe April 9th-13th and all my husband and I can say is that they are the best of the best!!!
They have a wonderful poker staff--that's mostly all we played while we were in town and they have the sweetest dealers and poker hosts!! Thanks Tish, Patty, Ethan for everything--and funny Zircon! The people that frequent here are just as nice, mostly locals but all very nice!
But the best thing about Binions was the Coffee Shop!!! I am not kidding here when I say this may be the best food in Las Vegas--who would think right?? A coffee shop in the basement of a downtown hotel!! Really, their food is so good and very cheap!!! Please try, you won't regret it at all--and if you play poker long enough they will be more than happy to comp your meal!!!
Our room rate was $25 a night, and really you can't do wrong here--don't go looking for a suite, with a butler and fresh fruit. This room was basic and it worked. Beds were comfortable, shower pressure good, and the room was clean! So if you want to stay downtown Las Vegas, stay at the Shoe!!! We will be back in 2 months and can't wait to see all the nice folks again.

Binion's horseshoe is a total rip off. The place is dirty, the rooms were below average and the personnel at the front desk were rude and inconsiderate. Next time in downtown Vegas I will stay at the golden nuggett. Anyone who stays at the horseshoe is making a major mistake.

Great times at the Shoe

from A TripAdvisor Member
This was my third trip to Las Vegas and by far the most excellent. During my last two experiences in Vegas I stayed at Treasure Island and The Venetian. Both were very high class and I had an okay time. Staying on Fremont Street is an experience that everyone should have. The "Shoe", as it came to be called by my friends and I is the only place that I will ever stay in Vegas. The value cannot be beat. The rooms are clean and the dealers and staff are friendly. Make sure that you say hello to Bobby that works the bar by the poker area and make sure that you visit the little coffee shop . . . steak and (great tasting) lobster for 10 bucks. I've been home for 2 days and I'm making reservations for next month. Do the "Shoe".

Should live the experience!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed here one night during our most recent visit so we could live "The Freemont St experience". The hotel was clean & inexpensive. Prior to this visit we stayed at Paris LV (twice), Riveria, & NY NY. We had not ventured out to this part of town. We had to wait for a room so we changed and went to the roof to take a swim three girls were making out in the pool and a homeless person was sleeping in a lounge. Within five minutes of our arrival hotel security was on the roof escourting him out (thus our venture began). Later in the day the same person was sleeping in a vibrating chair in the hotel lobby. We walked the streets, shopped, and watched the shows that night -- very interesting crowd. When we went to bed the lights and noise were incredible but because I read reviews like these, I was prepared and brought ear plugs and eye blinders (yup blinders)... Both came in quite useful as the room vibrated with the noise from the streets and the light show could be seen (flashing) through the drapes. This was a great experience. One I enjoyed and will never forget. If you're adventurous this is a fun detour from the norm.

Horseshoe a Pleasant Surprise

from A TripAdvisor Member
On the beginning of our stay in Las Vegas we stayed at the Golden Nugget, then went to Arizona before returning to Las Vegas. Could not get a room at the Nugget when we returned so we found a room at the Horseshoe. It was a pleasant surprise. Very nice staff, room was clean, nicely furnished, nice and firm bed, very pleasant room. The casino was above average for payback on your gambling money. We only ate at the little lunch counter and that was a show in itself. The gentlemen working there are very special, they made a sandwich lunch a real treat. Fun. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Best deal in town!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at Binions the weekend before Thanksgiving. Booked the room by calling directly to the hotel. friday, saturday and sunday was $121 including tax. small room with comfortable king size bed in the west side. Maid service was exemplary and filled all requests for extra towels, pillows and blankets.

Casino action wasn't real good. Gambled across the street at the Golden Gate.

Next time, I'll stay here and play in the daily poker tournaments.

Why stay on the strip when you can get around Fremont Street safely and easily. If you want to go the strip you can catch the bus a few blocks away for a $5 day pass. Be sure to catch the 802 as it stops less often and gets you to and from the strip quicker than the 801.

Granted the rooms aren't like they are on the strip but I'm here to gamble and tour Vegas not stay in my room. If i want to stay in my room I'd stay at home.

Just got back

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just got back from a trip to Las Vegas where we stayed at Binion's Horseshoe. Had a great time. I've previously stayed on the strip where every trip to another casino seems like a hike. But not on Fremont street. There are about 10 casinos within 5 minutes walk. The light show is great.

The rooms were spares, but clean. The staff was fantastic and the price was unbeatable. I'll be back to the Horseshoe.

hate the change

from A TripAdvisor Member
binion's horseshoe has been turned into a harrah's. the floor plan is the same. I've been going to the horseshoe for over 10 years. i hate all the changes and so do a lot of other customers. the help isn't crazy about the changes either. i'd really like to be able to contact MTR directly to voice my concerns.

great!

from titiauxUSA
this year, we discovered Downtown Las Vegas: lodging, casino, restaurant, entertainment
(we already went on the Strip in 2002)
hotel : Horseshoe : clean and beautiful rooms for
a small budget, the casino seems a little "dark" but it's old Las Vegas!!!!!

located just in Fremont street : "magnifique!"
"ambiance retro et magique"... completely different from the Strip.... to discover absolutely after sunset: jazz in the street, Fremont Experience:all these lights with music .... really great...

(sorry if mistakes... usually, I speak French..)

Top Local Tips for Las Vegas

Taxis from Airport to Hotel... If you're like me and don't like taking the bus or shuttle bus (at least while on vacation) make sure you don't allow yourself to be scammed by a dishonest cabbie. I'm no expert but here's a few tips that have served me well. First of all, before getting into the cab, ask for an estimate. For example, it should be roughly 20 USD to get from McCarron Airport to Downtown Las Vegas. I've found it wise to use Mapquest so you have an idea of the main roads and most efficient way to get to your hotel. Hence, you can specifically tell the driver which route to take so they can't pull tricks like using the tunnel when it's not to your advantage. For example, I like to go to downtown Las Vegas and I tell the cabbie "to take Swenson to Paradise To Las Vegas Blvd S to my hotel." The rate is almost always just a hair over $20.

Hidden gems Downtown Check out the mall area downtown. They have a great bowling alley and movie theater when you want to step away from gambling for awhile.

Pool and Spa at Golden Nugget Again the Binion's pool is closed but the Golden Nugget has an awsome pool and all you need to bring is a towel, they have a shark tank in the middle and a slide. Get there early to snag a chair in the sun though. Also for a romantic getaway or girlfriends excursion the Golden Nugget has an awesome spa you could easily spend half a day there, just get a massage and everything provided is for your using.
