Generally speaking when I stay in Las Vegas I like to stay on the strip in one of the MGM or CET properties, whichever one I can get comped. However I was recently asked about downtown and while I gamble there a fair amount while in Vegas I've never actually stayed in one of them as a guest. So for those of you who have been as a guest which one do you prefer and why. Good comps, good food, clean rooms, cheap rooms etc etc.

I've always been partial to the 4 Queens, hey hey.

Can you still do the daily Free Spin at the main entrance to Four Queens if you're already staying there?

Golden Nugget is far and away the closest thing to a Strip style resort that downtown offers. It is even nicer than some of the lower level strip resorts.

Trying to give the GN a run for their money would be The D.

And those are the two I voted for.

On a side note, I don't know why Binion's was included, or why anyone voted for it, since it's hotel has been closed for years.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

The D is horrible. Loud music, no room to walk around in on the main floor, and the cards cheat. I've always had horrible sessions at the D and Golden Gate. I swear they cheat.

Golden Nugget so far, best quality downtown. And the only acceptable gym. And their Sushi is (convenience * quality) > {All of Vegas}.

But I am going to give the Downtown Grand a chance next time I visit, which you didn't list. Too obese? (It is a block away.)

.

Downtown Grand isn't too far away. Well I've never been before, but if it's only a block away then it's not too far. The main reason I didn't list it was because I got the list by using the hotels list under WoV and putting the ones under downtown up. I couldn't fit them all and didn't realize Binions had closed the hotel down which is why it's not on there.
