Hooters Hotel & Casino Las Vegas Review

VT reader and headbanging Vegas lover RockChickX51 filed this excellent review of her room at the delightfully tacky Hooters Hotel & Casino Las Vegas. Big VT hugs and thanks to RockChickX51 for sharing her experiences with us. Take it away RCX51.



In early May, we were in Vegas for 1 week, staying at a timeshare in the Polo Towers. We decided at the last minute to get a room at the Hooters Hotel & Casino before they close the place. The week before, I called the hotel directly and booked a king bed tower room with a view of the Strip for $49.

We arrived at Hooters on Wednesday, May 7th at around 11am (walked there from the Polo Towers - what a hike). Upon entering Hooters, the smell of smoke and Axe body spray hit me in the face like an atomic bomb. This place was decked out with more neon orange tube lighting than any building should be allowed. The high amounts of bar stools and light wood walls didn't help the matter either. (I've been to Hooters before, but this was pushing it).

Walked over to the registration desk (no one in line of course) but we waited to be called by the rep. She called us up, I handed her my card and ID. She made it VERY CLEAR that no rooms would be available until 4pm (which was check in time and I was cool with that). She told me our rate was $59 (even though I booked at $49 but since I had no paper receipt I was stuck paying the extra $10, no biggie, it was Hooters). We paid for the room then told us to come back at 4. So we left and took a cab to Paris Las Vegas.

Man, that place sounds vile. You're a pioneer for staying there.

I stayed there when it was the San Remo, during my first trip to Vegas in '04. It was dirty and depressing then, but like now, it was cheap.

Like the old saying goes-you just can't polish a turd. The wood trim and the headboard scream old west bunkhouse, then they tried to dress it up with cheap Florida motel and Hooters decor. What a disaster!
RockChick, you deserve a medal for sticking it out on that stay.

Ya know RockChick, if you had worn yer orange shorts an "wifebeater" T-shirt (we all know you used to work there, it shows in your writing.... snik snik) you woulda got a discount, or at least tips from some drunk guys!!!

I wandered through there last Sept., and man you hit it right on the head. That place blows more than the women that work in most Hooters!!! Silly Owls!

What did you expect for under 50.00 for a room-Getting a room at Super8 would have been better hands down and the service at Ellis Island is a 10 compared to Hooters now you can see why the Locals are glad it's closing.

Just for the record, I went into this hotel knowing it was horrible. Stayed there only because it was $50 a night. And this review was actually just me letting the world know how horrible Hooters was.

I've stayed at Hooters and I don't think it's that bad. It's a cheap room with a great location. You can walk across the street to the MGM where it's $150 more a night and gamble or eat at the nicer restaurants there. From your review it almost sounds like you were expecting a Venetian suite. Did you pay $300 a night? No. Were you planning on spending your entire Vegas visit secluded in your room stroking the lovely soft 500 thread count linens that come with a $300 night suite at the Bellagio or Venetian? No? Then what are you complaining about. It's just cheap fun.

@gargamello from the review, i didn't get the impression that rockchick had unreal expectations going into the night at Hooters. It seems like a pretty honest 'this is what i got at hooters for 50 bucks a night'. yeah its tacky, but expected - i didn't find the room to be too bad compared to a lot of other joints i've stayed at, but the rude front desk person who jacked the price up on her to 60 at the last minute coupled with the badgering from housekeeping definitely raises some red flags in terms of service.

I can surmise that hooters is running on a skeleton housekeeping crew - hence no accommodation for early check-ins and their hustling you out the door at 9am, even offering to pack your stuff for ya. it's just plain odd behavior that i wouldn't expect from any hotel - fleabag or ultraswanky.

That kind of service is a red flag that the type of guest that stays could be creepy. There may be transient types filling the rooms at super cut rates that don't complain about rough service from the staff. It reminds of motels I've had to check into after a long days drive and the police keep getting called or people are knocking on other doors for drug purchases or hookers getting visits. A lot of times those cut rate rooms aren't worth it.
