Sahara, The Hell Hole, Is Greasy Disgusting Dirty

As the saying goes, "you only get one chance to make a first impression." I've been to Sahara a coupla dozen times, but zero times in the last few years. You could say that my stay there for VPP weekend was intended to be a second first date. Now I'm asking myself why I agreed to take that nasty skank out again.

My first impression was not of a courteous valet guy, bellhop, dealer or front desk employee it was of the stairs in the parking garage. Check it:

Sahara Is A Dirty Hole

Holy fucking filth. Take a coupla years of exhaust soot, construction dust, dead skin, urine and spilled Slurpeez, mix it with a coupla thousand gallons of Cinemuck and bake it in the hot Vegas heat for about 4 years and you get the above monument to absolutely disgusting.

I'm perplexed as to why SBE (owners of Sahara and a slew of ultra luxurious hotels in Los Angeles) doesn't see benefit in contracting a pressure washing company to blast away all this shit and get someone to spray on some fresh paint.

If the first thing that goes through my mind when I arrive at your property is "I hope I don't catch any diseases from the hand rail in the parking garage" you can pretty much guarantee that I'm definitely not confident in your innkeeping skillz.



Comments & Discussion:

Those stairs are ALMOST as dirty as the carpet in that place. Look at the felt on the blackjack tables next time you're in there. The logos are so old they say SAH RA. Yeah...some of the letters are rubbed off.
I mean seriously, HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO PRESSURE WASH A PARKING GARAGE AND STEAM CLEAN SOME CARPETS!? I know about 10 people that would go out there and do BOTH for cheap. People need jobs. Sahara CAN boost the Vegas economy

Super Skankahara!

Most subway stations in NYC are cleaner than that.

You are truly dedicated to the cause if you subjected yourself to staying here, it will surely make the Cosmo look that much better.

If you know what to expect, Sahara can be fun... but I wouldn't stay there.

That's really gross.

Actually, this inspires me to find the grossest room on The Strip, for documentation purposes.

At least you know where you stand in a hell hole.

That looks like something out of a Fincher movie.

How was your room? A report coming up?

All part of their master plan to convert the resort to a "Saw" theme.

"Stayed" there this Halloween weekend -- and by that I mean, had to reserve a room to be a part of their slot tournament. Walked upstairs to mess up the blankets, but I don't think there were any. Seriously one of the worst rooms I've seen in Vegas.

Ledge when entering the room -- note the paint, and the numerous pizza delivery flyers on the floor: http://tinyurl.com/2a8ogg9

We had a suite there about a year ago and it was great -- top floor of the Tangiers tower, nice white fluffy bed, tall ceilings, coffee maker, perfectly clean. If they replaced the console TV from 1920 with a flat panel, they'd be competition for newer places. And I think the suite was $80 for the weekend night.
