50th year anniversary party

The room was clean, fairly spacious and we got two queen beds which was good. There was little to no trace of smoking which was also good. The downside was that the shower would not allow a warm shower so we all had to take cold showers. My wife particularly didn't like that part of it all. We informed housekeeping about the situation and she just laughed about it. The pool was quite nice, there were a lot of choices for food within the hotel, a fairly large casino, and an arcade for the kids. The strip was within 15-20 minutes of driving. We tried the Caesar's Buffet and after that, the local buffet suffered in comparison. In retrospect, the local hotel buffet was actually pretty good, but the Caesar's Buffet was insanely good.

Wonderful anniversary trip.

Sam's Town is probably the best resort/hotel we have ever used. The staff was very helpful and friendly. All amenities were excellent. We plan on staying there when we visit Las Vegas again. Only recommendation would be to put microwaves in the rooms.

Business travel on a budget

We chose this hotel so we could save money. It was quite a drive in to the Strip each day for the work event and wasn't really ideal, fortunately we had a car and parking in Vegas is free. Our rooms were clean, if a bit rundown. Our shower handle was broken and you had to get it in just the right position to turn it off. We didn't interact with any staff except at check-in and check-out. Restaurants were somewhat disappointing. The wi-fi was bizarre and would sometimes kick you off if it was around standard check in time and make you log back in. It's a fine home base if you plan to head out to the Strip or out of Vegas to the sights around it on day trips.

Nice Surprise!

I took a group of 15 people, age 9 to adult to Sam's Town. It was a perfect choice! There was entertainment for all ages! We loved the light show. The restaurant choices were decent, and some of us even went bowling after midnight for a buck a game! We'll be back!

Good Trip

Hotel had good commodities although given the lack of non smoking rooms the stay was sub par compared to the hotels that have non smoking rooms available. Other than that good hotel and good service.
