Came to play 7/9/08 thru 7/11/08. Gaming is tops here. The staff are friendly. Drinks are great. Midway games are fun. Take home souvenirs are best won at the cheap games downstairs. Same toys and stuff are 2 or 3 times as high in the gift shops.
We saw the Louie Anderson show. He is funny! Got our picture with him before the show. Buy your tickets at a half-price outlet and save $. We sat dead center and only paid $70 for two tickets!
Valet park is the only way to go here. The self park is farther in the back. Eat at Dick's Last Resort.
Check-in was quick and friendly. At the front desk, I asked for a last minute upgrade to Strip-View. While none were available immediately, I was given a room and upgraded within a day at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
This place has the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on. But that's where the luxury ends. The rooms are inexpensive and clean, but there are absolutely no extras. No in-room safe, no coffee pot, no mini-bar, plastic cups instead of glasses. This was not a problem for me... just remember you're not paying Bellagio prices.
The best thing about this place is the LOCATION. You can easily get to six other casinos without needing your car. The Excalibur casino is huge and has a great selection of slots and table games at reasonable table minimums.
The poker room is excellent... not too many poker sharks, and they offer a bonus wheel that you get to spin on selected hands... a real nice extra ( I got an extra $50 ). They also have a huge race and sports book.
Drink service was quick and frequent, even if you weren't having alcohol. I was expecting this place to be overrun with children, but this was NOT the case during our stay. They do offer an arcade area downstairs and a pool.
To sum things up... this hotel is a good value for those seeking clean rooms, good service and reasonable prices. Elegance is available elsewhere, at higher prices.
I've been to vegas 5 times in the last 2 years and it's mostly because Excalibar keeps giving me three free nights every six months! Also I get free slot play and free food or drink credits. So it's best to sign up for the players club card.
Let's face it you never really use your hotel room in Vegas other than taking a shower and getting a few winks at night. So the room doesn't have to be the penthouse suite at Caesars or Bellagio.
The best part of Excalibar is the location. It's on the south end of the strip next to pretty much every major casino. All within walking distance. The staff is always been friendly they've always upgraded my room for free and as for the gaming floor there isn't a lot of kids running around that's only in the kid gaming area. Best place for your buck!!
A large and modern casino that offers great entertainment for the kids as well as the adults. A large arcade and impressive food court will keep the kids busy and fed. The Krispy Creme Donut shop is a delicious favorite.
The Tournament of Kings Dinner Show is a very entertaining attraction for the whole family. Although a little pricey and not the greatest of feasts the actual tournament and show is worth the cost. Lots of action, stunts and audience involvement will please almost any child or teen.
