Not a good location at the far north end of the Strip, even if it is the only Strip resort actually in the city of Las Vegas. There is a Strip bus stop right in front and a monorail stop down the street at Sahara Ave. They removed their 100% video poker a few years ago, but they still have some scattered full pay 8/5 bonus. The poker room has moved a few times over the years to where it is now with only a couple games going, usually 1/2 and 2/4. Not much for comps here.
We were not impressed. The show was absolutely stupid, the food was mediocre, and the room was about like a Motel 6. The casino was so boring and I played poker in the poker room and it was practically depressing. The people who played there were nothing but a bunch of drunks and morons.
I remember when the Strat first opened, it was a pretty nice place. No more.
