They're old. But.... They're trying!
The room was adequate for one but not at all fancy and for two people would be crammed. My room overlooked the neon sign and the windows actually opened but the view was over a side street. Bed was comfortable, shower and bathroom were tiny. The casino is small but the casino host was really nice and welcoming. Parking was a block away in a small, open lot that was available for anyone to use, free for guests.
Let's start with the Valet...Great bunch of guys! You walk-in and the atmosphere is inviting and there's terrific modern music playing and you always hear the noise of a great crowd every time. Bartenders make great drinks even when they are "comp." Great nostalgia of memorabilia especially of the photos of Marilyn Monroe. Miss the old slot machines that when you won coins would gush out and you needed a bucket. Right across the street is Has-a-go-go for excellent plates of food. Definitely share a plate or plan on taking leftovers.
A fun time in Vegas!! The actual pics are my view from my room at Circa, which is the latest Hotel affiliated with the Golden Gate casino. Talk about modernization, this hotel could not be any more modern. Light switchs and all. Make sure you have your hotel key. That's your access even to go in and out of hotel. Had a great time!! Definitely recommend!
Meals with Macy: you are here for the atmosphere, history and experience. The food is also good. It isn’t perfect, but it’s good. The king crab was prepared so it could be eaten with ease. The steaks are very good, the bone in rib eye being table “blue ribbon” The shrimp cocktail was good. The raw oysters were west coast and were not good- as west coast oysters are not my favorite/ take that with a grain of salt. The garlic cheese toast and table side Ceasar salad are not worth the price tag. Again, overall- it’s a taste of history, and it’s very charming.
