Would stay again

Great. Clean. Friendly staff. Quiet. We liked being not on the strip but close enough to easily get there. Nice to have varies places in there to eat at. Buffet was okay, except the Sunday brunch (no fruit), but hubby liked it. Nice pool, didn't like to walk thru casino to get to & from pool but pool was nice, nice lounge chairs, water just right. We would stay again.

Perfect!!!

This hotel has everything for a family vacation. There is a theater, bowling, arcade and what kids like to eat, McDonald's, Panda etc... And for the grown-ups, there are sit down restaurants. If you like to gamble, there's no reason to go to the "Strip" Sam's Town has it all. As we were there for a wedding, it was very convenient. The wedding took place overlooking the tropical gardens and waterfalls. The reception was excellent! The DJ was great! The only snag, if u want to call it that, was the lead waitress. A little bossy and rude at times but finally came around and became nice. Overall, it was a nice experience without all the crowds in the Strip. I would definetly stay there again.

Lots to do!

I would definitely recommend this hotel for singles, couples and families. So much to do: gambling, dining, dancing, bowling, movies, swimming,shopping.... I would have liked a coffee maker in the room but you can get a cup at McDonald's or Dunkin Donuts downstairs. I would also have liked a refrigerator in the room, but with so many dining choices in the hotel it's not too much of a problem. Walmart is just across the street. The staff was very friendly!

Love this place

I love this place. Very family oriented and my kids love the light show, bowling alley and move theater. Has a really good buffet for the price, and other quick on the go eateries if on the move. I don't like staying on the strip, but it is only 20 mins away if I wanted to pop in. Staff is so friendly. I asked for a room with a view of the courtyard and got my room upgraded for free. Housekeeping also offered any additional towels or blankets as we were walking to our room. Overall, I recommend this hotel!
