Enjoyed my stay at El Cortez. This is my second time there in Las Vegas. I don't remember the room being this large. It has more space and has a small refrigerator to keep drinks cold. I just went to Vegas to shop around and check out the new Allegiant Stadium that's home to the Raiders. I haven't been in 3 years and just want to see what's Vegas like during the pandemic. People are out more in the evenings around Fremont Street and The Strip. No complaints. I will come back to visit!

Second time staying here. Conveniently located, and far enough away from Fremont Street hustle and bustle to sleep soundly. Room was comfortable, but overly chilly when I arrived (the AC was still on even in November). Only electrical outlet for charging phone was in the bathroom; at least supply some alarm clocks with USB plugins.

Great remodeled room!
We got in late for our 1 night stay on Fremont Street and were delightfully surprised when we got placed in the Tower Rooms section. The room we stayed in was tastefully redone in a blend of modern farmhouse and rustic decor and was a steal at $42 (don’t forget the resort fee to be paid at the hotel). The beds were comfortable and noise was non existent. Will definitely stay here again!

Great little spot
Nice, comfy hotel next to everything on Freemont St. Super friendly staff. Room was spacious and tidy with a mini fridge, bed was comfortable. Not many dining choices but the Container Park is less than a 5 minute walk away. I will stay here again.
