We brought my mother in law for a combination mother's day/birthday celebration. She is a devoted Boyd casino patron, so Fremont is her favorite! We stayed on the 14th floor with her and also brought my husband's aunt and two nieces. Rooms were newly redone with floor to ceiling windows with wonderful views. We could hear music, but were way too tired to be bothered by it! Rooms and hallway were clean and everyone from desk to cleaning to servers were super friendly and helpful. Tony Romas was great and so were other restaurants. Will definitely return!
This was not my first stay at the Fremont. I have family in the area and so Downtown is a good place to stay because there is plenty of public transportation and Uber so I did not need to rent a car to get to my family member's apartment. This time, after reading reviews here, I made a point of asking for one of the renovated rooms, non smoking, and quiet. Well, as the song goes, "two out of three ain't bad". I was very happy with the room. We did not smell cigarette smoke in it at all, though the odor was strong in the hall. (And the Casino is deadly in terms of second hand smoke--I don't understand why there isn't good ventilation to clear that smoke out. I hope the employees have good health insurance; I could hear them coughing!) Back to the room, the bed--a memory foam mattress, I think--was unbelievably comfortable. It was a pleasure to lie down on it and rest or try to. (the pillows, however, were huge and hard--I could not sleep with them as they made my neck ache). We had a nice working refrigerator and a little coffee machine which I used mainly for hot water for tea and instant coffee. Well, by some folks standards, the room was smallish, but we are friends and did just fine. I thought the upholstered, strange chair a waste of space and would have preferred another desk chair so we could sit side by side at the desk and play cards or have a snack. We mainly did take out and ate outdoors or in our room because, naturally, folks had masks off in restaurants and we did not want to risk catching covid. I can't address the cleaning situation as, due to Covid, we chose not to let the cleaning staff in our room but took out the trash ourselves and tidied up ourselves. Not sure what that much aligned resort fee covers--if it was cleaning, well, we did not use that. But back to trying to rest. . . . Since we are no strangers to the downtown noise, we brought our earplugs and used them every night. However, the music from Fremont Street thumped along, actually shaking the building, for many hours into the night. At one point, having a nasty headache by then, I got up and fetched my noise cancelling headphones and put them ON OVER THE EARPLUGS. An improvement, but I could still hear the music. So this is what I don't get: why don't the hotels on Fremont Street put rules in place to limit the volume and the bass of these performers? As I see from other reviews, it is making other guests uncomfortable too. What about damage to our ears?!!!! Has anyone sued Fremont Street over ear damage? Why does it seem the "rule" on Fremont Street is: anything goes? Oh, but wait, I suppose the hotels, casinos, and restaurants here are making lots of $$$ from the visitors. Yes, and let's not forget the bars. Why, they are now right on Fremont street, beneath the digital canopy, so you can stroll around and drink as much as you want. If you are not aware, a good swatch of Fremont Street, that under the canopy, has been made into a nice walking area--you only have to cross one street--Casino Blvd., in the middle. I really loved the canopy when it was installed a few years ago--so cool to see the digital displays rolling along the canopy--I especially liked the planets. There are some really skilled designers making these things! However, now there are loads of ads up there for various things one can buy, including bars, of course, and sports betting. So, hmmm, that's gone downhill, I'd say. In addition to the swarms of drunken visitors, there are many more (drunken, drugged) street people hanging around on Fremont Street. One of the pleasures we enjoyed (when we woke up every day at 6 am, still being on home time) was a quiet stroll down to the Starbucks in front of the G.N. At this hour, the music that accompanied the canopy imagery was great! There were songs from the '50's and they were not played full blast unlike everything else on Fremont Street. So, we'd sit there and enjoy our coffee and a croissant. It was peaceful until the cleaning Zambonis came out around 7. However, some of the street people would come up to the seating area and pester the Starbucks guests. One time FIVE security people came up and escorted a troublesome man away. Another time I had to go in and ask Starbucks to call security which came right away, too. There are many more homeless people hanging about on Fremont Street these days. We saw one old guy URINATING on a trash can as we walked by! In fact, when walking around down there, the odor of decaying urine and worse is dominant. The area under the canopy is washed regularly, but it's hard to disguise the stench. What I don't get is why the city of Las Vegas doesn't provide a shelter for these people? Riding through town, you see their tents and shelters along fences, under overpasses, etc. Seems like a big problem. Ok, and another thing. The Fremont Experience includes the bands, as I've mentioned, and other street performers. I would not bring children here. This place is NOT for them! You've got feather headed dancers with naked buttocks and pasties. Naked men with thongs. Scantily dressed females dressed as police smacking bypassers derrieres with whips. So called comedians screaming into microphones and saying naughty things. Sure, it's Las Vegas, but clearly there is no control of what happens on Fremont Street now. My week long visit was wayyyy too long. I was exhausted from insufficient sleep due to the noise and also worn out from the crowds and noise we encountered when walking by necessity on Fremont Street. I miss the old days when the thrill was to see an Elvis impersonator eating in the South Street Grill--or to see a whole pack of them walking down Fremont Street! Vegas, you've gone too far! If I were to rate the room on the space itself, it would be at least a 4, maybe a 5, but with the overwhelming booming racket from Fremont Street, it gets a 2. Next time we visit, we will look into Air BNB.…
Room was filthy! Entire hotel and casino was extremely run down even after recent renovations. Rooms were ridiculously small and hard to move around in with 2 people. Bathroom sink was literally a 12” x 12” square with no counter top space at all and shower was barely large enough to fit a very small adult. There are far and away much better options at a very similar price point.
2 major downfalls: 1. Absolutely no noise or sound barriers, so if you have a room like I was placed in, near the bands and music and the zip line, bring noise cancelling headphones or something, the windows had cold air coming thru, so maybe they were not replaced during the room re-model? They do have black out curtains, but in certain rooms (like the one I was in) you could hear absolutely EVERYTHING!! The people yelling, the band going until 5am. Great for some, bad for others. I should have asked for a new room, but I was passing thru and it was cheap for the day that I was there for, so I did not ask for a room change (never again). 2. The bathroom was small and dirty, hair all over the bathtub. The bed was dressed with a mattress pad, flat sheet and thin comforter, no fitted sheet which was kind of odd. Positives: Cheap drinks, clean place (hotel part, casino area), good customer service, and easy Valet service. It was at the very end of the strip, so getting to it was easy, it was around 20-25 minutes from Caesar's Palace. The overpriced Dunkin Donuts was actually really a treat after a lack of sleep. You can walk out of the hotel directly onto Freemont street and that was great, also the Casino offered great drinks that were inexpensive. Definitely won't stay again, but it wasn't horrible.…
We stopped here for the prime rib dinner and we were not disappointed for the price. The prime rib was really tasty, very thin but hey what do you expect for $18.99. The original price is $20.99 but if you have a players card it’s $18.99, be ready to stand in line because this place gets crowded.
The Fremont is a very old, and historic casino that has nothing spectacular. There really is not much to write about here, but I have always been impressed with ALL of the departments great customer service skills. They have a really great restaurant called Tony Romas and the worst Chinese food imaginable called, the lanai express. There are many locals that come here for the cheap drinks, to play video poker at the bars, and many have stated that the slot machines are looser here, as well.The Fremont has a really good sportsbook! jefferson lee-amazon book author
I planned my first visit to Vegas at Fremont hotel. The hotel is very old, and its age shows, however, its in the center of the downtown area, which is a fun place to be, especially in the evening/night. Keep in mind, downtown is different from the strip. Downtown is older and not quite as fancy, but you can certainly find a drink and some fun. The room itself was dark. I was in 237. 2nd floor, with a room view of a construction zone. I constantly had construction workers walking right outside my window, so I kept blinds shut the entire time, which was kind of disappointing. It was not as clean as I would have preferred, but I was only in the room to sleep and shower. I didnt want to inspect too closely because I was afraid of what I might find in regards to cleanliness/sanitation. I will say, I was very impressed with how quiet my room was. For being right above Fremont St. AND on the 2nd floor, I expected to not get much sleep, but I heard no exterior noises during my 5 night stay. Would I stay here again? Probably not. Was the room comfortable? Yes, as long as you don't plan on being inside too long. Location is fun. I also highly recommend the zipline (Slotzilla) nearby. Its too bad that Fremont can't partner up with some of the nearby businesses for a discount tickets or something. Also, I chose to do my gambling at Four Queens, they have much nicer machines. I won $170 of a .60 bet. So fun! I didnt like Fremont casino. …
1 star is really to much at this point. I know they are going through a remodel. Which is WAY OVER DUE. Our room was dirty, the bathroom smelled of urine the shower walls have mold the curtain rod is coming off the wall. I dropped something on the floor and when I used my light. I found several water bottles under the bed and someone’s blood pressure meds. You could of made a quilt with the dust under the beds. As for the casino I think it time they update the machines. 100 Buffalo games is a little much. For the small casino. I could go on. But you get the just of it. We will not be back. Sorry
Another great stay. We’ve had comped rooms here for years. We were there last week returning for the first time since Dec 2019. Had a great time at the Fremont and other hotels downtown. Table games and machines at Fremont were fun. We have noticed table game minimums downtown are typically $10 instead of $5 but that was ok. Cocktail waitresses were generally frequent to visit. All staff very friendly and room was clean. We’re already looking to return in February for my mother in laws birthday.
My room was small and dark. The blinds on the windows wouldn't stay open. A coffee pot and accessories was brought up on request. The room seemed like it was in need of a makeover. There were not enough outlets.
