I stayed at Terrribles and found the staff to be exstremely helpful, especially Dennis the Consierege sorry abou the spelling. The food was fabulous and well prepared. I especially liked the easy going atmosphere the hotel projects. The pool area was well presented, and I found the decor and surroundings at the hotel to be fantastic considering the price I paid. Well worth the price. I would recommend to anybody.

My wife & I plus several friends have frequented this Hotel many times over the years & have been very happy with the services provided there.
Unfortunately our last visit was next to ruined by a little incident that never should have occurred.
While gambling on a slot machine at the bar I accidently threw away a winning hand by failing to hold my winning cards. I admit that it was not the brightest thing to do I mentioned to a friend what I had done in a joking manner as the amount was not very significant.
One of the bartenders overheard the conversation & indicated that they could call someone to check the history & "possibly" get back my credits.
Being only $15.00 it did not seem to be a big deal but he was already calling someone to check it out.
First a lady came over & I explained what happenned & she said that I should not drink while gambling but I had only been there a short time after driving five hours & consumming only a couple of drinks. She also said that poker was not my game.
Then another lady came over who seemed to be her supervisor & when hearing about the ordeal told me that if I was too STUPID to hold my cards it was my problem & there was nothing she could do about it.
I had just showed up to the casino for a three day stay to hear someone call me stupid as I spend my hard earned money at an establishment that I had always been happy with & would still be.
If I was her boss she would have been reprimanded on the spot as my job is in customer service & words like that are not acceptable!!
As a long time customer of Terribles with a lot of great memories it is unfortunate that one incident like this can change my future plans as a loyal customer to your fine establishment.
That word she said rang through my head all three days & my wife, friends & people in the vicinity of the ordeal were as shocked as myself.
I never had the intention to recover the money in the first place. It was only the choice of verbage that marred my stay.
Thanks for listening!

Terribles - not what it used to be

I have stayed at Terribles numerous times upon leisure trips to Vegas, both alone and with my husband.

Although I have always enjoyed Terribles before, our Dec '05 trip was another matter.

Terribles is in the process of adding a garage (sorely needed) and new hotel tower - meanwhile both hotel security and upkeep are suffering. Employees lockers are now located in trailers on the south end of the property - they tend to leave all the doors open to the hotel - but in reality, you can walk directly from the casino to the hotel corridors anyway! the other concern is that the rooms which I have stayed in before were usually clean, neat, in good repair - this time the window had no weather-stripping, the shower head had a leak that sprayed water on the wallpaper above (although I must admit both were fixed quickly once I notified them) and the room felt somewhat old and tattered - although Terribles was never fancy, it had always been better than on this visit.

The breakfast buffet and all the food at the Bouganvillea cafe remain well priced and good (basic food), and I did win a $100 bonus on a 18 line penny machine - but they no longer have good coupon books, and the casino, as always is very tight with machines, and usually quite smoky.

This visit I was out playing elsewhere, and went to pick up my husband outside the hotel - he had to stand there with two employees who had just been fired - was a bit uncomfortable! After quite a while, someone seemed to notice on security cameras, and came and shooed them away.

During my Jan '06 visit I did go to Terribles several times for breakfast buffet (buffet has 2-1 coupons, and they honour them at 1/2 price for buffet if you are dining along) as well as for lunch - low redemption values at a kiosk opposite front desk and great Chinese food lunch specials (weekdays), I think we will no longer stay there until the construction is complete.

It's a shame - they have shuttle to/from airport and some of the best prices in town.

I always stay at Terribles, because it is usually quite inexpensive. It is not far from the convention center, and not far from the Strip. Food is cheap too. Get a room on the top floor, overlooking the inner courtyard, if you can - less noise.

Aloha it was my 1st time to Las Vegas and boy what a great time I had. First of all I must say the food at the TERRIBLE'S CASINO was very good for the price. The rooms at the hotel was really good because it came with a coffee maker and free coffee, sugar, and cream (I need my coffee). They also have a free shuttle that takes people in to town which I thought they should have two pick up and drop off times. 1st pick up 10:30am 2nd pick up 1:30pm. 1st return shuttle 5:30pm 2nd return shuttle 10:30pm. The employees were great but some could use some improvements on their customer service. But overall I enjoyed myself and I would recommend the TERRIBLE'S to friends and family and on my second trip to Vegas I would most likely stay at the TERRIBLES HOTEL AND CASINO but for now ALOHA.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Terribles Hotel and Casino

Great value

from A TripAdvisor Member
Great value @ $27 per night. Very helpful staff, great food prices, Bingo in your own hotel, fun table games, relaxed atmosphere. Ask for room with courtyard view. Nice pool area.

Terribles a real find

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at Terribles one night in April, 2004 and loved it. Not only did we receive a great rate of $29 on a Sunday night, but we found the staff great. The hotel room was very nice and came with the first coffee maker and clock of all the hotels we have stayed at in Vegas.
The room was overlooking their pool courtyard. Very generous with their player club members offering many 2 for 1's in both the restaurant and buffet. Although it was about 1 mile from the strip on Flamingo, it was a very plesant experience.

Terribles-a good deal!

from spanky132
We stayed at Terribles in March, 2004. The good: cheap room rates, generous comps, nice pool area, low table limits, nice affordable restaurant. The bad: hard to get a cab (had to a walk 2 blocks to Hard Rock to get a cab). Overview: if you go to Vegas once every 10 years or if you want to be pampered, do not go to terribles. If you are a Vegas veteran, like to gamble, and want a nice affordable room, Terribles is the place for you. Expect a standard "Red Roof Inn" type room; this is no MGM folks, but you can't argue with the room rates! The staff will not kiss your --- like they would at the Bellagio, but they are all nice and accomodiating. Until I win the million dollar jackpot, i will return to Terribles.

Above average for the price

from A TripAdvisor Member
We were just looking for a decent place to sleep in Vegas and this suited us just fine. We didn't really gamble in the casino so I can't say a whole lot about it. Sure it smells like smoke but most of them do. The room was pretty quiet and very big. Plenty of space. I ended up needing an iron and called maid service who brought it to the room in less than 5 minutes. The man at the front desk was very fast and friendly. I was very satisfied as far as quality compared to price. The only bad thing about it was the pool/hot tub situation. It looked like an awesome pool but we never got to use it because it closes at 6pm. We were a little disappointed because we had hoped to relax in the hot tub after walking around all day and it was already closed.

Loved it

from A TripAdvisor Member
Terrible's was absolutely the best place I have stayed in Las Vegas. Location is convenient to the strip, within walking distance. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Food was excellent and price was low. Rooms were spacious and clean. Outside gardens were wonderful for relaxing, nice pool and jacuzzi. I definitely would return to Terrible's, they won me over.

I loved it

from A TripAdvisor Member
This was my first time to Vegas, and was disappointed when my buddy booked a room here. Boy was I amazed when I got there. The casino was niced sized, cheap and good food, easy access, and it had the best player's club of all the casinos that I went to. I paid for one night of my room within 1 hour of playing blackjack. I won out two different ways. I look forward to going back next time.

What a value!

from magicfish
Have stayed here twice, and have already booked my next stay! As a woman who is sometimes traveling alone, I can't beat this place! Valet is always friendly and helpful, and I feel comfortable here - small place, with easy room access. One of best features is the convenience store located just off the casino floor - everything from T shirts to drinks, with reasonable pricing.

This is mainly a locals joint, so rooms are generally reasonable - no, I'll say it - they're usually CHEAP!!! I stayed almost a week in Dec.
2003 for $9.95 a night ! Check their website - buy one night, get one free - and other really cheap rates are usually available if you plan in advance; very generous slot club lets even a low roller like me take home merchandise, get free meals, etc.; one recent deal offered room nights for quite low points.

Don't eat the buffet except for breakfast, and make sure you have a coupon - 2-1, but also honored at half price for people dining alone; at that price ($2.50 per tax pp) you can't lose - made to order omelets are the hightlight.

Their restaurant, the Bouganvillea cafe, is another matter - good basic food, great prices - check out the lunch specials and the late night/earling morning ones. They feature Chinese food specials at lunch, and have a new Mexican section of the menu. Coupons are readily available online or in their monthly newsletter (not always in stock when you get there - get them online). They have even been putting coupons in the rooms for selected reduced cafe price specials. Try the house wine - pretty decent, but definitely inexpensive.

As for the casino, it can be a little crowded and noisy - but you'll find good odds on 25 cent and up video poker, a small sportsbook, and even a bingo room - table mins. start at $5, and there are tons of slots crammed into this space. The casino can also seem smoky at times.

The rooms are basic but clean - I did have a room once with water damage. I recommend the third floor to avoid noise from rooms above. I had problems with neighbors on my last visit, and I found security to be both prompt and efficient.

They have a free fitness center for registered guests, and it includes a full bathroom, as well as a computer station that has a PC with web acess.

If you don't care about being right on the strip (hotel/casino is on Flamingo at Paradise), and just want a cheap, basic room, this may be the place for you! You can always catch the Flamingo bus just outside for a cheap ride to the strip, and Terribles has a free hotel shuttle to/from McCarran airport.

Good Enough

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed during March 12-14th. Read all the reviews before I went. Check in was fine - found the person friendly - got me three rooms right next to each other. The casino isn't much to write home about as it's very small. The rooms are modest but I've stayed in worst. Had two queens and one was the most lumpy bed I've ever seen. The bathroom had a hole in the wall. But over all not bad - at least it didn't smell funny. I paid a cheap rate through Lodging.com and I suggest you don't pay more that $74 a night to stay here. Because and here is the deciding factor in my opinion - the hotel is right next to a fire station and a hospital. So all night you WILL hear sirens. If you are exhausted enough it's not a big deal but if you are a light sleeper - you will be miserable. And the walls are paper thin so you will hear your neighbor if you don't have your TV on. The location isn't bad if you have a car as you are close to some great restaurants and if you know how to work the side streets - you get around town quicker than being stuck on the strip. So basically you get what you pay for.

s is Terribly Accomodating:)

from A TripAdvisor Member
This is a great hotel for frequent traveller's to the city. Room prices are super cheap, checking-in was a snap, and the rooms are clean and updated. The casino area is smaller so it doesn't take 10 minutes to leave your hotel. Plus, it's 5 minutes from the Hard Rock!

s ALL in the Name

from A TripAdvisor Member
It?s all in the name! Terrible?s is TERRIBLE. The problem was not the hotel room itself which was adequate. Or the run down crowded casino. My problem came when my brand new car was broken into that was parked in FRONT of the casino and my personal belongings stolen. When I notified the manager Mark (last name?) I was told to file a police report regarding this felony break in and he would check to see if anything was recorded on the security video. Sounds good, too bad it never happened or no one ever got back to me in a timely fashion. Not only was I never gotten back to regarding the video, nothing else was offered as compensation for my loss. I asked the maintenance department if they could get me some plastic and tape to cover up my broken car window and was met with the response? that it was not their problem. Would it have been too much to ask for if my room was compensated for my troubles? A complimentary dinner perhaps? Anything? This hotel is Terrible, and the customer service and security indeed live up to it?s name.

Top Local Tips for Las Vegas

Rental Car Be sure to rent a car so you can see all of Vegas and the nearby attractions! The rentals are a good value and parking is free and it is easy to get around.

Buses Make use of the CAT & Deuce bus systems. Currently they're $2 for a one-way trip, but you can get a pass for $5 that gives you unlimited travel for 24 hours. Just avoid the Strip at the weekend as you're better walking due to the traffic.

You get what you pay for. First and last time staying at a budget property. Spend the money and stay at a pricier, Strip property.
