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!!
As the title indicates I was very pleased with my 1 night stay. I had an efficient check in. My room was very nice it was their standard room and it seemed very clean.
My check out was fast despite a long line as they expedited the check out. The lunch buffet had some very good items others were decent quality. vp not good at .25 level.
Good location on the strip. Reasonable room rates. Buffet forgettable. A good variety of food choices. The Tournament Banquet is a must do. Some decent vp but not a lot. I happen to like the medieval decor and format. Pool area is good for the range of prices.
We recently visited the Excalibur Hotel-Casino. We walked over from the Tropicana Hotel Casino where we were staying.
It had been many years since we had last been here but we didn't notice anything different. Whenever we come to Las Vegas
I carry an old Excalibur dollar coin that I got many years ago for luck.
Excalibur is a really fun casino to play in. If you like the idea of a fun colorful medieval concept check your sword at the door, this is fun.
I agree with the other reviews that you will not be over run with tons of little kids holding candy cotton sticks against your back, but there are enough around to add a kind of fun atmosphere. There is nothing wrong with the sound of a happy laugh from a younger child. Kids and pre-teens have a sparkle that adds fun to the experience. I'm not sure the show would work so well if it was just full of us old fogies.
The bad news for me is the Buffet. I have stayed in Vegas 6 times now and tried the buffet three times over those years. It has never gotten any better. The food is not bad, but it is really just a high carb basic buffet.
Perhaps this is due to kids not liking new foods, but there has never been something for us adults to look forward to tasting. If all you want is a full stomach with no taste bud wonders for a good price, it is fine. Just don't expect much. The same goes for the show dinner, but that is what you expect from the dark ages.
