Historical Traveller Reviews of Fremont Hotel and Casino
Pleasantly surprised!from RobbieNomi
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!

Great stay - outsanding valuefrom A TripAdvisor Member
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 backfrom artdude
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.

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.
