The Real Deal on Gold Coast:

Gold Coast is squeegeed between the Rio and Palms. It primarily caters to locals, the old Stardust crowd and budget conscious visitors who are willing to pay for clean, quality rooms in a friendly hotel and don't need a whole bunch of bells and whistles. Local joints usually have better odds, better video poker pay tables and looser slots... if slots or video poker are your game but you still want to have the option to duck into the Palms or Rio to kick up your heals, the Gold Coast is a fantastic option.


The Casino at Gold Coast

The Number One Bingo joint in Las Vegas. Plus a full featured Race & Sports Book, BlackJack, Baccarat, Craps, Roulette, PaiGow Poker, keno and a grip of slots and video poker machine. Their Keno game sometimes gets up to a million dollars.


The Rooms at Gold Coast

Gold Coast offers three types of rooms - standard, premium and deluxe. Your best bet is definitely the Premium rooms which were remodeled in 2008. All of the Gold Coast' room are pretty small - 360 square feet - but are still very well put together and pack a lot of bang for their buck. Premium rooms feature 32" flat panel TVs, free local and toll free calls, wifi and free shuttle service to the strip. Gold Coast is probably one of the best deals you're going to get in Vegas.


The Restaurants at Gold Coast

Gold Coast features seven dining options including the Cortez Room casual restaurant, a little more upscale than a cafe, but not as fancy as the high priced restaurants at all the other hotels. Chinese cafe Ping Pang Pong - which is one of the best restaurant names ever! Noodle Exchange - noodle bar. TGIFridays replaced their old 24 hour cafe. Ports O'Call Buffet - prices range from $6 breakfast to $12 dinner. They also offer a Sunday Brunch ($11) and a delicious seafood buffet on Friday night ($17). If you don't have a Club Coast card, the price is a coupla bucks higher. It pays to get a card! Other noshables include a Seattles Best Coffee, Kate's Corner for ice cream and sweets and a TGIFridays too!

Solid value proposition.

Small, but well thought-out rooms just off strip. Cheap, but good food. Friendly staff.

Heck, the artwork in the rooms is exactly the same as the artwork in standard Aria rooms.

An easy walk from thr Rio for cheap craps. A bit dated (although I hear that there are renovations in the works...?), but a very friendly place.

Great place to play BJ and Craps. Pai Gow isn't bad especially if you just want to relax and get a few free beverages.

Stayed here for three nights with two of them being comped and was given food credit and slot credits as part of the offer. I've played here several times in the past and had a either a great run or an ice block of a table. My first stay here was neither grand or crappy. The bed was comfortable, but the doors and wall to the hallway are thin. To top it off, there was no in-room safe (boooo). The food choices were alright at best. I'd rather stay at The Orleans.

I will say the cocktail waitress that serves the table games during graveyard was the best! She always had a drink for me everytime she came around. Even when she was taking orders. I forgot her name but she's from Hawaii.

Say what you will about the old Gold Coast. But it's tough to find a more fun mid-day mid-week craps game and above-average VP. In general, it's an older, more sedate crowd with an older, more sedate staff. But if you need a fun casino afternoon away from the big places, it's a good choice.

I like the Gold Coast. When I stay at the Rio and the limits get out of hand, I know I can stumble across the street and get $5 Craps and Blackjack all day long. When I want the amenities of a Strip casino, all I have to do is head back over to the Rio or Plams across the street.

Another good place to chuck dice and play cards on the high min Fri/Sat nights. If we're not at the Cal, we're here in the same state of drunkeness...and probably getting worse. At least we haven't been thrown out of this place yet. Only draw back is it can be tuff to get a cab back to Planet HO-Ho at 2am
