Sahara : The VegasTripping Review 2010

The New(ish) Superior Rooms At Sahara

Posted by Chuckmonster

Sahara Superior 1000

Whatever you do, do not pay more than $1000 per night to stay in this room. I paid $99 booked two weeks in advance. One night at 3am, I noticed that the price had decreased to $69. Unfortunately, I left that $30 on the table because I forgot to call them for a rate adjustment during normal business hours the next day.

All joking aside, this room was the best thing about the Sahara, and I paid entirely too much for it. The good news is that as of this writing, the Sahara has begun to take all of their standard rooms offline to give them complete renovations in the style seen above. Progress, even when sideways, is still progress.

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..
