Golden Nugget Las Vegas Photos Review : Bedtable

Side Table

Situated between the beds is a small night stand holding a phone, digital clock radio (off, unlike at the Venetian which was blasting a local soft rock call in dedication show upon entry), remote control and a pad and pen. Inside the drawer was a gold lame Holy Bible and a local phone book filled with about 50 pages of advertisements for call girls.

Golden Nugget Las Vegas Photos Review : Chairs

Sitting Area

Nestled in the corner of the room between the window / jet powered air conditioning unit was a small sitting area - two red chairs a marble top table and a floor lamp. On the table is the room service menu, a rumpled issue of the latest Vegas info mag, an ethernet/power outlet and another ashtray. The ethernet/power outlet combo had a rather long cord that would reach to the bed if stretched to the max. The power outlet proved to be essential as there were no other outlets accessible without moving furniture around. The question is, what do you do if there are two laptops that need to be charged and hooked up simultaneously? Knowing in advance that this little Vegas jaunt was to be seriously wired, I brought a multi-pronged powerstrip with me.

Unfortunately, we didn't order any room service that weekend. Sorry!

Comments & Discussion

I've stayed here 5 times over the past year and a half. While the price has always been right, service & cleanliness declined each visit.

hmm :/ based on the photos this looked about on par (nicer in parts, worse in parts) with my very recent stay at Paris. only the nug' was a hell of a lot cheaper. oh well. at least i'm gonna get paid by the company for the stay

It appears that the Nug, for all it's nostalgia, is just an average joint, but I gotta admit that's a great rate. I could see staying there on a future economy trip.

I have never stayed at the Nugget when staying downtown. Just looking at the pics and the video, I would rather stat at the Tez in a tower room. The Tower rooms are just as nice and about the same price (usually $40) and much better gaming in the casino. I'm just saying.

I stayed and the Nugget not too long ago and had a room on the 12th floor almost exactly like this.

I too found the keyboard on top of the TV only when I checked there to make sure I hadn't left anything.

One thing is - wifi is expensive ~$10-15 with no free in-room alternative.

I tried to sign up for the wifi during our miffed attempt at doing a live webcast from fremont street but the sign up didn't work, plus you had to get out your credit card instead of charge it to the room.

That being said, there are a bunch of wifi networks in the area you can glom onto, but their signals aren't very reliable. Seriously, it's time they give us the wifi for free.

Did you you check out the TV stations? Does is have that LVCVA channel showing those history of Las Veas shows? Any cable channel, or is it one ESPN and a bunch of Japanese and Spanish channels?

I got an offer from this place yesterday for $15 rooms and $112 spa suites (the super cool 2 story rooms). It just wasn't valid for my travel dates but let me tell you what, if they offer those damn spa suites for $112 again I'm cancelling my Mirage room and sweeping this up.

I stayed in a south tower room in early October and they replaced the tube tv with a LCD flat panel. I was really surprised at the small number of channels that were available and the quality of the reception wasn't great.
