Christie and her craps staff were wonderful. Made my stay there enjoyable.
Give my regards also to Dave, the bellman, cashiers, front desk personnel, and housekeeping. Even though the rooms were a little small, the staff made the stay enjoyable.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Fremont Hotel and Casino

Pleasantly surprised!

from RobbieNomi
We had booked one night at the Fremont at the last minute. Nothing special, just a place to rest our heads before moving to the Strip the next day. Our expectations were beyond met. We found the valet and front desk to be incredibly friendly upon arriving. Upon check-in we learned that we had been upgraded to a mini-suite for no apparent reason. I've never stayed there before, and I'm not a member of any slot club they have, so we became a bit shocked by this. I guess a friendly smile and hello can go far downtown.

The Fremont is a medium sized hotel, which thankfully meant the front desk, elevator, and walk down the hallway to your room was less than 5 minutes. Our room was on the top floor, with a panoramic view of the valley. The mini-suite was very nice, it was set up like a typical room, but with a small area set to the side featuring a VERY comfy sofa, mini-fridge, coffee table, and plant. I'm not sure when the last renovation of the rooms were, but everything seemed very new and in beautiful condition, nice fabrics done in good taste. I thought the shutters instead of drapes were a very nice touch to the room. The bathroom was no Mandalay Bay, but it was typical for a downtown (or any big city) hotel, with clean tile, good lighting, and a fancy shower curtain. The hotel could've easily paid little attention to the rooms, so it was a nice surprise to find a good quality, nicely decorated, super-clean room in an old hotel.

The casino was very old-school (another downtown plus) with high-enough ceilings to prevent claustrophobia. After winning a little on blackjack (VERY friendly dealers) we decided to play some slots just to get rid of some cash. The slots ended up paying very handsomely. While it's next to impossible to not hear the Fremont Street Experience from your room at night, it was never an issue since the shows were only once an hour and stopped at midnight (and if you're in bed before midnight in Vegas, why did you even bother coming?). Before checking out we had the champagne brunch at the buffet. For $15, it was an unbelievable deal. While not as lavish as some of the Strip's brunches, it was fancy enough to fill up quick. I'm not sure what champagne was used but it did indeed leave us with a small buzz.

All-in-all, the Fremont is our first choice for a clean, comfortable, tasteful, friendly, and affordable hotel in the downtown area.

PS- While downtown, head over to Mermaids for a 99 fried Twinkie. It sounded disgusting to me at first, but now I am a true fan of this delicious desert! Just trust me!

Not bad for the money

from A TripAdvisor Member
Not bad for the money. Great downtown location, clean but small rooms. You can probably find a better deal on the internet though.

A good deal

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at the Fremont March 13-March 17, 2005 - Very friendly staff - Rooms are small but clean. They served the purpose of a place to rest between gambling stints. Slots were very loose on this trip. Table play was very enjoyable also. Frances, Susan & Ryan in the Players Gold booth were very accomadating with comps and turning our points into prizes. While we visted other casinos on Fremont street and beyond we kept coming back to the Fremont for the best play. The only complaint was that our favorite table (Let It Ride) was not open one night & we had to go elsewhere to gamble & play the slots. Can't wait to visit again. Hopefully they will have plenty of dealers next time around.

Great stay - outsanding value

from A TripAdvisor Member
Great stay at the Fremont January 15-18. Very friendly staff, easy-check and check-out. Unbeatable location for downtown. Full service casino and sports book. Points earned at California and Main Street Station slots add on to Players Card. Cocktail servers remember what you want, come around pretty frequently unless the place is packed. Comps relatively easy to get, compared to Strip hotels we've stayed in before.

Rooms are small but full equiped (ironing board, safe, etc.), clean and neat. Ask for a high room. away from Fremont Street. Skip the buffet at breakfast and order from the menu. Dinner buffet is ok.

We'll be back.

The Best jumping off point to Las Vegas, wish I was back

from artdude
We received a promo in the mail after having joined their Players club and the first promo they sent us was 2 nites for 1 paid nite. The second promo was a comp for 3 nites. Fortunately when we checked in , Dan the front desk person advised us to take the comp 3 nights instead. We could only stay for 2, since we had reservations in Laughlin and looking back, one night less in Laughlin would've been better.
The room was on the highest floor, 12th, with a view of the side of the Fremont Experience and of the Binion Hotel which was interesting because there was a young woman across the way looking out the window who was saying "greetings to downtown Las Vegas", dressed only with her black bra top (probably a good omen/sign for lady luck). Everyone was correct in describing the room as small and my wife wasn't quite sure how she felt about it unitl later, when she got comfortable with it. Look on their web site and they have a 360 degree room tour that was completely accurate. The room was very clean and everything worked well, the windows had louvre window shades instead of drapes which would've been too dusty and they added big mirrors to the bedside wall and bathroom to make the room bigger. The mattress was fine and we both slept well.
The craps game was always $5 our whole time there and the table during our stay was very tight. On our last day, I had 4 separate rolls of 28, 17, 16 and 15. This was great because they have a promotion where if you are a players card member, they award you prizes. I received a: Fremont cap, travel clock, manicure set (for the wife) and combination flashlight/emergency light. Plus, as soon as you roll you can leave right away since the table becomes cold again for the other players. For some reason, the table did not like full table but an empty one with a lucky shooter like myself.
The rest of the casino, I would have to agree with the rest of the writers who told me that the slots are definitely tight. We tried the penny and nickel slots/video games but would almost never get into any bonus rounds. We will definitely go back but if you want better action for penny/nickel video slots, my recommendation would be to go to the Plaza.
Our only meal was at the combined cafe/buffet for breakfast and we ordered two of the many combination Hawaiian style breakfasts over rice-- spam over, linguica over, teriyaki too. The decor was definitely Island with lush oversized dark green plants, even though there was a low ceiling, there was enough space to take you away from the sort of crowded front casino space. The service was nice but our server was swamped and should've had help with some young person to bus tables and refill drinks.
I need a self-parking garage, and this hotel only offered valet so someone on this website was correct in recommending the Main Street Station open lot, two blocks away (cut through Binions at the corner and you'll go through the poker area where they televise the big annual tournament, go through the casino diagonally and you'll be a short block away instead). Tell the attendant you're staying at The Fremont and she'll just ask to see your room key.
We'll probably be back in April and will definitely go back.

Terrific Buffet

from A TripAdvisor Member
We visited the Freemont for their buffet when we visited in November 2004. The seafood buffet on Sundays, Tuesdays and Fridays was terrific!! Really worth the trip. We went back for a breakfast buffet and found while much smaller, price was really low and food really good. The room was really nice with tropical plants and all

FULL OF ALOHA!!!!!!!!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
You feel like your in Hawaii! Everyone has this "Aloha Spirit", full of smiles, excellent customer service! Hotel staff are "Excellent"! I must say it is a whole lot better than the strip. Mahalo to the staff @ Fremont for serving the BEST customer service in Las Vegas!

Comfortable every time

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Fremont makes you want to stay and play. We have always had very friendly service, nice rooms and good food. We were there for Valentines Day and I am returning in November and I can hardly wait. The Fremont makes your Las Vegas experience what it should be.

Friendly Satff

from A TripAdvisor Member
We visited the Fremont August 30 - September 1st. This was our third stay here and as usual everything was great. The entire staff is courteous and strives to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We did not win anything here, but had alot of fun trying. Food comps are easily obtained by playing either tables or slots. Our room and all meals were comped which made the stay more rewarding. For the money and friendly atmosphere you cannot beat the Fremont.

Always a great place to relax and feel SAFE

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have been staying at the Fremont for going on 16 years and have never had any regrets while I and my husband stayed there. My husband can go anywhere leaving me there without a worry in the world because of their top security, and the staff is alway there to answer any questions. I have always referred the Fremont to all my friends and will contiue to do so. My room has always been satifactory and the restrauants are great. This is a plus because the Fremont has a restrauant for any gravings and the prices are very reasonable for the pocketbook. Like the old saying it's a one stop shopping and a definate one ONE PLACE I LOVE.
Another pat on the back for guys at the Fremont Hotel and Casino.

Top Local Tips for Las Vegas

Get a Fremont Street Experience Coupon Sheet A couple weeks before our trip i checked on ebay for some downtown las vegas/fremont street coupons. i won an auction for $2.50 shipped, for a coupon to redeem a coupon sheet for the fremont street experience, it saved me $80, with all the 2 for 1 buffets, and 2 free tix to the viva las vegas show at the plaza hotel (which was surprisingly funny & entertaining even though it was free)

Airport cabs Either the different brochures or websites that suggest prices to/from airports are off or I was had both ways with yellow cabs. You hear don't take the tunnel from airport to casino but that appears to be the route always taken and our price was always $30.00 before tips.

Should you rent a car or bus it? You should definitely rent a car. All of the hotels have free valet parking. It can cost an arm and a leg getting around by taxi. Waiting for the Deuce can add hours onto your traveling time. I passed many a person waiting for crowded buses. You can't see the sights while waiting at the bus stop.
