Sahara : The VegasTripping Review 2010

The New(ish) Superior Rooms At Sahara

Posted by Chuckmonster

Sahara Superior Hallway

It is hard to tell from this extremely blurry photo, but the hallway is spotless... no trash, no dust, no piles of sheets, housekeeping carts or abandoned room service trolleys. Grab the camels and get this team cracking on the parking garage stat! Way down at the end of the hall on the right is room 2652.

In goes the key... bloopbloop... and in goes us.

Sahara Superior Room

The first thing I notice upon entry is that this room, just like the hallway outside, is spotless and does not smell like cigarettes at all, something the Mirage still hasn't figured out. The room is small though, definitely larger than the squeakers at Golden Gate, and maybe slightly larger than the standard rooms at Harrah's.

Mmmm.. Funyuns

You should have stolen that camel lamp.

Wait that room is "Renovated" or just got a new TV?

The flat screen TV probably costs more than all the furniture in that room combined. Table Beds Chairs Sheets=$300 at the most.
Flat screen=$699 tops (you know they got em on sale somewhere)

I stayed in one of the Tangier rooms about 4 years ago, the room does look a bit better, although how much is debatable. It would be nice to see some of the common areas cleaned up like the room and hallways. As the property does have some charm, as mentioned, I've found a lot of the dealers and bartenders to be first rate.

Do they sell that lamp in one of the sad gift shops??

For a budget hotel, that room and hallway don't look bad at all. Sahara's problem, though, is that EVERY Vegas hotel is a budget hotel these days.

I trust they don't have the cojones to charge a resort fee. That's a plus, huh?

I remember a while back that the Sahara closed a good portion in their rooms. (2007/2008? I don't know exactly when). Is this still the case?

I've had some funny/weird upgrade experiences at the Sahara but I never went there for the quality of the rooms. The craps crew is the best! A bunch of them have left or switched shifts but there are still people I look forward to seeing on every trip. Sahara is the first place I ever played craps so they will always have a special place in my heart.

Looks pretty spiffy for a low end joint. Not bad on the decor, and the cleanliness is a plus.

Perhaps they should open a home store, a la Wynn. If nothing else, they could probably sell a bunch of those camel lamps.

Seriously, when you could stay at Mandalay Bay, Mirage, or any number of better places for the same money, why would anyone ever choose the Sahara?

Dude. I can't believe you, Mr. Shat-Phone hater man, would use a coffee maker that is within reach of a toilet. I mean, ewww. No way does that thing get hot enough to sanitize itself. This might explain why you went on a rager and nearly killed that poor little doughnut loving Indian guy.

Okay even though the place looks steam cleaned I wouldnt consider staying there. I would, however, buy one of those cool lamps.

Thanks for the preview..I've got a Saturday night December 11 stay booked..paid under $40 on their website, just to say I stayed there and knock one more hotel off the list....I for one like the Rat Pack pics in the casino..Sahara is one of the few properties left that celebrates Vegas past..
