Silverton - The Real Deal :
They don't call Silverton a "lodge" for nothing. Huge log beams, bright natural wood tones and the smell of the great outdoors, indoors all add up to a completely different type of "themed" casino experience. It's refreshing, friendly, fun and well... a little hokey. Snowshoes not required.
Location of Silverton:
Silverton is located about 2 exits south of Tropicana Blvd on i-15 at the Blue Diamond Exit on the west side of the freeway. Seems far, but it's actually not that bad of a trip and worth it if you're looking to get out of the insanity of the Strip for a while.

Cool Stuff About Silverton:
This is where Paula Abdul likes to get into fights with reception desk employees
Silverton Las Vegas started life as a Boomtown casino in 1994. Boom quickly turned into bust and Boomtown was forced to sell to its landlord Majestic Realty in 1997 who quickly changed the name to Silverton. In the ensuing 10 years, they invested $150M to redesign the property and add a Bass Pro Shops. The current expansion - including a 25 story hotel tower - is expected to elevate Silverton's offerings from off-strip option to destination resort when it opens in 2010.
The Rooms at Silverton
Silverton's current hotel (not the tower) features two room types - Deluxe and Suite rooms. They're best described in the same terms as the rest of Silverton, log cabin luxury. All rooms feature pillow top mattresses, broadband internet, mini-bars and amenities by Bath and Bodyworks. Silverton's rooms are generally quite inexpensive, so do yourself and splurge on the suite if you're hard set on staying here.
Restaurants at Silverton
Silverton offers six dining options including Shady Grove (bar & snacks) which has an Airstream trailer inside of it, Mermaid Restaurant & Lounge (booze & snacks) a great place to enjoy drinks while zoning out at the ginormous aquarium or the casino floor), Sundance Grill (24/7 coffee shop), Mi Casa (Mexican grill & cantina which features an enormous selection of tequilas), Seasons (buffet with six made to order serving and carving stations), Twin Creeks (fascinating menu of 'boutique bourbons')
Silverton features a huge aquarium right inside the main lobby that is stocked with an astonishing array of fish including sting ray, sharks and the occasional human scuba diver (true). Perhaps its irony that a gigantic Bass Pro Shop will happily restock your tackle box barely 20 steps away.
