Casino: -Many slots and classic table games are found. It gets very crowded in the Weekend! A couple jackpots have been won at Ellis Island! -Best Karaoke in town! Lots of people and fun every night and weekend makes this place a little Vegas paradise from the 70s!! -It's a small Casino, which means you get better service there than any other huge Strip Casinos...you want a drink, you'll get one for sure! -**NOTE: Ellis Island has it's own beer!!!! -The 2 restaurants have the best BBQ chicken and ribs! Prices are extremely cheap, but the quality is very acceptable. Drinks are also very cheap...you won't brake the bank, but you'll get out wasted for sure! -Ellis Island has a great atmosphere, mainly from the famous Karaoke (celebs are found there regularly) lounge and singing Elvis (the one from Imperial Palace). HOTEL: It used to be a Motel 8. Then it was bought by Ellis Island. Fully renovated rooms and suites. Nothing fancy, just classic rooms with windows you can actually open!!!! WOW!!! and ground patio doors for the suites. A pool-small and quite. Nothing like the GO pool at the Flamingo. Pool is...ok. No Pool party. It's like a Vegas pool from the 70s. -The check in desk is very small. But you get checked in way faster than on the strip. -The rooms are clean! Haters will always hate! Beware of bad reviews! -Speaking of the strip... The Hotel is located 3 blocks from Las Vegas BLVD. I said 3 blockes, not 30 miles! You'll have to walk or take a cab. If you can hardly walk 10-15mins under the striking desert heat...maybe you should consider another hotel or a cab. There is a short cut through the Flamingo...but if you are not used to the area you may find it hard to get on the strip. We love the vegas heat...don't have a problem with it! THE FINAL WORD: I've stayed at the FLAMINGO, BELLAGIO, HARRAH'S, TREASURE ISLAND, MIRAGE. Because of the constant rise of hotel rooms, we ended up at Ellis Island, ignoring reviews. I will never ever go back to a strip Hotel ever again! I love to drink and eat good food! Ellis Island doesn't brake my bank-compared to Strip Hotels. Most tourists just book a room on the strip because they don't like to walk much and are easily scared by locals and homeless if they have to walk off strip. Insecurity is part of a tourist!(lol). They waste a lot of money for resort fees, food and drink. If you are used to Vegas, give Ellis Island a try...I did not regret it and I've stayed at the most expensive Hotels on the strip!
