Real Deal on the El Cortez

El Cortez is one of the best kept secrets in all of Las Vegas. Since 2008, El Cortez has undergone dramatic, yet incredibly subtle renovations. The entire casino has been scrubbed and refurbished, new rooms, new suites, refreshed dining options and the addition of the truly fantastic El Cortez Cabana Suites out back have turned the El Cortez into a true modern classic destination. Highly recommended for cheapskates, downtown lovers , vintage Vegas freaks and boutique hotel snobs.


Are the vibes lucky at El Cortez?

Funky, dank, groovy. VegasTripper Newtron swears by the El Cortez craps tables. They say that the El Cortez is THE place to play slots. Who knows if this is true, but their progressive machines paid out $78 Million bucks to various winners in 2003. Perhaps there is something to these claims... during our last trip to El Cortez, we won $200 in 5 minutes on the slot machines, paying for our stay in the Cabana Suites, Dinner at Cortez Cafe and a bunch of other expenses. Score!


What casino games are offered at El Cortez?

Single Deck BlackJack (w/Royal Match side bet), Three Card Poker, 10x odds $1 Craps, Mini-Baccarat, Roulette, Keno and a Poker Room. The Sports Book is open 24-7 during NFL season.


Does El Cortez have casino comps?

Liberal comps... so be sure to register for Jackie's Club if your gonna give them some serious action.

Love the El Cortez. Best low-limit gaming downtown (next to Main Street Station). For such a great old school joint, they have a hip twitter presence. The 2 for 1 martini hour rocks, and the chance of seeing Jackie Gaughan walking around in the casino is worth the trip down.

I love everything about this joint. Only at the El can you see a little old lady and a gangbanger kindly swap strategies about the Wizard of Oz machine. The coffee shop is the best, the bar drinks are dirt cheap and the blackjack tables still give out 3:2 payouts on blackjack. Everyone complains about the smoke and the smell. I think I'm addicted to it. No, really. I think I may need help.

El Cortez is a no-nonsense great deal. Cabana Suites (which aren't actually suites) are *the* best value in town, perfect for someone like me with Cosmopolitan tastes and Imperial Palace budget. The casino exemplifies old-school, with lower ceilings and lots of dark wood. Games are reliably loose. Video poker is excellent, with (wow) a couple of 100% payback machines. $5 double-deck blackjack is a player's dream.

Love the vibe here. It's really old Vegas with good odds and low limits. I try to get to the El Cortez every trip.

Have stayed here several times and have enjoyed it each time. Tower rooms are very roomy, except for the bathrooms. Otherwise extremely happy. And yes you can see Jackie Gaughan around the hotel. Have done very well on the slots too. Highly recommend it.

Haven't ever stayed here. The place is truly old school and I like it. People who love the flash of the strip probably won't. Any place with single-deck blackjack featuring a 3:2 payout automatically gets major thumbs up in my book.

Cabana Suites are a sweet little secret tucked downtown. There's such an old school feeling in the casino and the lounge bartenders, especially Paulie, just make you feel right at home. Its a must stay every trip

The spirit of Las Vegas is alive and thriving at the El Cortez. New(ish) suites, refurbished less smoky casino and the incredible Cabana Suites building out back. Classy, intimate, El Cortez never goes out of style. RIP Jackie.

One of my favorite low-roller joints in Vegas. They deal some of the best $3 / $5 BlackJack games anywhere and offer a killer 2-for-1 martini Happy Hour. The piano player in the casino bar adds a nice vibe. The Flame is a classic, old-school steakhouse and the easy-to-find $25.00 coupon makes it a must-do when staying D'town. What's with that nasty, old-woman "perfume" scent they pump into the casino?

Stayed at the Cabana Suites for one night in August 2011. Tiny rooms, fantastic bathrooms. I wanted to put the shower in my carryon.

Walking into the El Cortez is like taking a time machine back to the '50s. The place is retro cool, especially the Flame Steakhouse, great food in a great looking place.

$3 Blackjack @ 3:2 odds, basically the only reason to go here for me. Update: ate at the Flame steakhouse, great meal for a great price.

Very classy joint, especially for it being so far off the beaten path down Fremont East. Still has that musty "chalkboard" smell to it, but it's an excellent gamble with good dealers and people that come here.

My tower room was just fine - clean, quiet, and fairly spacious (except for the tiny bathroom) so I was happy to stay here as a solo traveller. Oh, also it was cheap, which helps. I do love playing at this casino though. I love the flowery fragrance that hits you like a slap from grandma when you walk in the door. I (mostly) love the oddball mix of people who play and hang out here. I love the craps here more than anyplace else. The whole package is a strange brew that's maybe not for everybody but that delights me every time.

A very low key place to gamble with the feel of Old Vegas. Its down Fremont St a little ways but not very crowded and easy access to any gaming you want. Not much of a reason to visit if you want a lot of action.
