I love the Western. Great blackjack games and colorful people. I saw a drunk woman tossed out the front entrance only to return 5 minutes later topless! She was arrested by security. It was priceless. Another guy started a fight with the pit boss because he felt the blackjack dealer wasnt shuffling enough! Thats right..not enough! He had lost about $ 750 in thirty minutes. He had no idea how to play blackjack. He threw and hit the pitboss in the head with a pack of cigarettes that the pitboss had just given him for free! Lol...security tossed him too. Later the same pitboss comped my girlfriend and I $20 for the cafe. We couldnt spend that much!...they serve beer straight out of the can too! I just love that place.
I go here to gamble atleast once a week. The slots are pretty good, they are always paying out. This place is in a bad area though, so i recommend only going in the day time. As long and you keep to yourself, you will be fine. At night it does get pretty bad with all the bums,drug dealers and hookers hanging out around the corner. You dont have to look your best going in here, just jeans and a t will do.
While I am not a clean freak, I walked into the men's room and walked right out. The flooring in the casino is older than I am and full of holes. Slot machines are old!!
Bingo was great. I won 3 Bingos. Only 20 people showed up for the session! I didn't stay in the hotel but it's not much.
First of all I have never stayed at the hotel but played in the casino for about one hour. what I can tell you from what I saw is the following. Casino filled with homeless looking people, casino very old and dirty and the smell of B.O coming off many of the players. We only stoppped here because the paper said they had a bingo game there. The casino was so bad that we didn't stay for bingo. My grandma who is 80% blind even complain about the place being dirty and she can hardly see anything.
About the only thing we liked was the price -our "package" was $350/person for a 2-night stay & air fare from Austin, TX. That included a ticket to the buffet (which was mediocre) and some free chips for the casino. The rooms were FAR away from the lobby - we had to take a golf cart, and the rooms were moldy, dark and very worn. Thank goodness we only had to sleep there (when we slept). We were told there was a "nice" pool area, but it was way in the back of the property with only chainlink fence around it and backed up to a rather questionable looking apartment complex. I'd definitely not take small children there! The pool was clean enough, but small and there was no shade anywhere.
The lobby personnel at the hotel were less than helpful. We were supposed to have "express" check in, but when we arrived, it was "get in line with everyone else."
In retrospect, we should have booked at the MGM Grand or Luxor. This trip was for a family wedding and we took the cheap route and got what we paid for - cheap!! The only highlight for us at the Western was that Elvis showed up in the casino and he was good and we did get a picture with him (for free!). Other than that, I'd recommend staying further down the strip and paying a little more - it's worth it.
The western what can I say? I am a local and visit frequently it is great and horrible at the same time. If you are looking for nice looking cocktail waitresses, high class amenities, and lots of glitz and glamour then this isn't your place. Lot of locals prefer like me however a casino like this because this is the real Las Vegas. A honky tonk style place with an old west charm but not for the faint of heart. It has cheap tables and single deck 21. If your looking to gamble without a bunch of fake plastic people and really talk to the locals then it's great. It is a ruff area if you go in there with a nice suit and money hanging out of your pocket but dress casual and your fine unless you just hang around outside looking for trouble. Food is good acctually and getting comps from the 21 table isn't hard after a few hours of play. I like it but if your prepy or just too good to get down n dirty then shove off and stay at the belagio.
please Read closely. don't take a chance on this one. This "hotel/Casino" is in a tough area several rough blocks from the other Downtown hotels. I feel this place is a bad idea for most travelers. Bad location, filthy tables, slots and clients. i love the old school charm of downtown as much as anyone the Western is not charming it is just plain scary. Plaza, LVC, Binions, 4 Queens, Gold Nug. No western!!!
In an age of $150 hotel rooms, $20 buffets,$10 minumum tables, and major casino mergers and takeovers, the Western offers an atmosphere and aura that the bigger casinos can't match. For less then $20 a night, The Western offers a key location a mere few blocks from the glitz of the Freemont Street Experience. With ample slot machines and table games, a gamblers needs are easily met. Parking is plentifull, the rooms are quaint and clean, and the friendliness of the staff easily matches or surpasses that of the major hotel chains. With a food court second to none, The Western is a place that can't be overlooked.
I really enjoyed staying there. The price is great and the food court is my friend. I love the chicken fried steak sandwich. The best part is the reasonable prices on the room. I've stayed there every time that I visited Las Vegas. Thank you so much. :)
