This place is all about location. It's in a great spot on the strip, at affordable rates. The buffet continues to underwhelm year after year and should be avoided. The rooms have been modernized, but they are nothing special. The pool area has also been upgraded and is one of the nicer features of this property. This property continues to draw families.
Fun place but could use a major refurbishing. Tower 2 Widescreen rooms are nice, tower 1 original rooms not so much. Pretty nice casino & bars, restaurants I tried were OK but not spectacular. Poker room has great tables and decent staff, but it can be hard to get a game some days and drink service could be quicker. Still, I like playing poker here. Drop the resort fee Excalibur, it's sleazy and nobody likes it and you drive people like me to Harrahs properties because of it!
Great if you are an average Jane, like me, looking for a clean, safe, affordable place to "crash" on the high end of the Strip.
The rooms are clean, but really basic. Great if you don't spend much time in your own hotel, like me. If you are looking for comfortable beds, big rooms, and luxury services, not the place for you.
For several 3-4 day weekends a year, it is a great value on a room while being able to keep your cash for gambling, entertainment at the pricier casinos, and shows. You will not be overrun by kids and drunks, like the other end of the Strip. Overall a nice, friendly, family hotel and casino.
Just ok slots, not big payouts, but good selection of slots, and great table games at reasonable minimums ($10-$15 on up) for the pricey side of town. Neat theme hotel for families and women who like medeival charm.
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.
