Thank you for reviewing the Fremont Hotel & Casino. We appreciate all feedback, positive and negative, and use reviews as a way to train staff and improve our operations. The Fremont caters to both smokers and non-smokers and have areas that are smoke-free, including our restaurants and an assortment of non-smoking hotel rooms. We know you have many choices for places to stay and we hope you will give us another try.
When checking in the desk staff were slow and indifferent. The cleaning staff on the other hand were just great and helpful.
The room was smaller than expected but since we only spent sleeping hours there it was okay. The bed was very comfortable. We had a smoking room with king sized bed. Was a little noisy but tolerable. The view was great. We could look out our window and watch the shows.
If you want to experience the old Las Vegas, with all of the noisy exuberance and pizazz this is the place to go. Nothing at all like the strip there is very little pretense here. Street performers, outdoor bands at night, a zip line down the middle of Fremont Ave, and vendors or every variety. Casino's are lively but definitely not sedate or over the top. Food is inexpensive and passable, rooms are dingy but clean and incredibly cheap.
Only complaint was the t.v. Size and channel selection. Rooms were clean and the layout was excellent. Everything from Fremont Street to the valet (no self park) to Dunkin Donuts for ur morning coffee was just a few feet from the elevators.
The Fremont Hotel and Casino is what it is. An inexpensive stay in downtown Las Vegas. You definitely get what you pay for. We kind of got "stuck" here because we were attending a conference downtown at The Golden Nugget. Unfortunately our boss waited until the last minute to tell us we were going and the Nugget was full. Transportation back and forth from the strip was too expensive. We were told that the Fremont Hotel was our best option so we took it. First of all, don't let the name fool you. This is not a "hotel." This is a "motel." We stayed our first nights (pre-business) at The Pallazzo on the strip and this was good and bad. Good because it was a FABULOUS experience and kind of cushioned us for our fall when we arrived at the Fremont. Bad because it spoiled us and made the Fremont and even bigger let down. If you want luxury in any form, the Fremont is not what you want. It's basic and meager. The reviews we read before going said the room was clean. Ours not so much. You have to literally beg to get a blanket and when we got it, gross. It was like it was made of a form of melted plastic. The bathroom was so tiny even one person had to move carefully. The toilet was angled in the corner to make enough room to close the door. The shower was for a short person (but did have hot water, which is always a plus). The casino is a typical downtown experience. Super, duper smoky and packed all the time. There's a Dunkin Donuts which was kind of convenient for coffee (this was new info for me - there are not coffee pots in Vegas hotel rooms) and a morning danish, but all the food is sitting out so when you big into it (it makes me gag thinking about it) it takes like a smoked cigarette - yuck. Our room was on the Fremont Street side and until 1 a.m. or later, Fremont Street does a lights show with blaring music and fighter jet sounds. It was miserable when you had to be at 8 a.m. meetings. You can't beat the price for $50 a night - but you get what you pay for. Since we were at a conference at The Golden Nugget, we got to see some of the rooms, even in the non-remodeled Carson Tower. They were very spacious and really nice. I would never, ever stay at the Fremont again. If your'e going to Vegas on a dime, this is the place for you. But FYI, Vegas is not fun when you're going on a dime. Downtown Vegas didn't impress me at all and my experience at this motel didn't help change my mind.
Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at the Fremont Hotel & Casino. We apologize that your room was less than you expected and left you with a disappointing experience. In regards to transportation, the Fremont does offer complimentary shuttle service to Sam’s Town-Boulder Strip and from Sam’s Town to the Las Vegas Strip. The Fremont is located in historic downtown Las Vegas and conveniently on the Fremont Street Experience, which comes with some unfortunate sights and sounds. We do have many other rooms that are not directly on the Fremont Street Experience. We appreciate all feedback, positive and negative, and use reviews as a way to train our staff and improve our operations. Your feedback has been shared with Hotel Operations to ensure that future guests are not left disappointed.
Being a bConnected member (have a Boyd Property players card), I booked on-line, which showed free/comp'd rooms for four nights. Upon arrival, John checked us in at the front desk. He said our offer was for only two free nights, and said the other two nights would be at $35/ night. A casino host wouldn't override that. However, an hour later, John had taken it upon himself and had called Reservations. He confirmed that we were reserved four (4) comp'd nights and they honored our FOUR free nights. THANKS BIG JOHN!!
The machines are dated in this casino. Not many new machines have been added in the past few years.
TIP: If you ask for a coffee maker upon check-in, they will send one to your room!!
