Great table action with the dancers at the tables. They also have the girls at the outside bar and the last stage of the Fremont Street Experience is right out the front doors. Poor variety of video poker and the paytables are not the best for downtown.
This is a great place to come if you are looking for a buget friendly stop. Most of the time the there are pleny of $5 tables, max $10 during peak times. The VP is ok, but I didn't see any fp at the .25 level. Very easy to earn free room mailers. The hotel itself is very one star, bur serviceable. The rooms are small - seriously they are small - and the bathrooms are dated. No pool, no room service. Valet is close and quick.
They have a resort fee coming which may hurt the budget minded. Great eye candy at the tables.
I enjoy looking at the old slot machines and pictures. Vp pretty weak, especially for downtown.
Cafe still has the old Dupar's baked goods. Nice history.
I happen to be paralyzed and in a wheelchair, but fly out several times a year I fly out to Vegas and always enjoy checking out the various resorts -- especially the Downtown properties.
I never stayed at the Golden Gates because they did not have handicapped-accessible accommodations so it will be interesting to see they make some of the rooms accessible for the disabled with their current renovation project.
On my recent visit, I went to the Golden Gate for my usual fix of shrimp cocktails and the back area was walled off.
The Golden Gate has some very attractive dealers at their table games, but my favorite part of the Golden Gate is the food.
Besides the $1.99 shrimp cocktails, I think they have the best coffee shop downtown. Their breakfast items -- including pancakes, French toast, fresh baked muffins, pies and fresh squeezed orange juice -- are some of the best anywhere. Among the entrees I enjoy are the roast turkey dinner and the chicken pot pie.
The service in the coffee shop is excellent and there are several staff who have been their many years and do their job to perfection.
Looking forward to see the completed renovations at the Golden Gate. I just hope they don't wipe away that old Las Vegas feeling and atmosphere.
This small hotel and casino goes back to the turn of the century! Lots of fun in the casino, pretty lady dealers, cheap table games, nice old slot machines. Great Deli and Shrimp Bar. Old pictures of San Francisco, hence the name Golden Gate. Players card always has an offer for new sign ups.
