I have never been able to stay at The El (as my group calls it.) Cant ever get a great rate. That said, the casino is GREAT! Everytime we come downtown, we always stop here to get cheap drinks and good gambling (yes to $5,...More
This review relates to the gaming facilities only. The casino is located a couple of blocks from the Fremont Street mall. It is worth the walk. It is an older casino but very clean.The machines seem to pay and the card dealers and servers are...More
Old school Vegas charm with friendly staff and nice rooms. I have nothing but great things to say about the El Cortez...the location is walking distance from the entrance to the Fremont Experience and I walked up there Saturday night and it was a blast....More
The El Cortez in Downtown Las Vegas is a step back in time. Part of the machines in the casino still payout in coins which is hard to find. It feels like a casino and not the modern plastic feel of the Strip. Stayed in...More
We walked east on Fremont, away from the crowds to try out the slots and video poker machines at the El Cortez. The Cortez is small and caters to locals and those who are just ending their shifts at other properties. I stopped by the...More

The EL COrtez is a fun, decent place at a reasonable price. No pool. Just 1/2 block from the Fremont St. Experience which is really something when the sun goes down. Bands, individual musicians, all kinds of shops and casinos in close range. For an elegant dinner, contact the restaurant on the top floor of Binions. One of the nicest in Vegas and easy to get to. Great view from the giant glass windows. Check out the top saxaphonest in the nation in the middle of the street on Fremont. He is unbelievable and plays at the biggest jazz concerts in the world.

Well if your "play" in the casino logs enough hours, you can get the hotel bill waived, including the resort fee. Remember roulette during the day at this place is $0.25 minimums, and they offer $3 min on Craps during the week as well. Even on the weekends you can find $5 BJ and Craps. It's not how much you lose. Like any casino, comps are based on a formula that accounts for your average bet x the amount of time you stay at the tables. If you don't play much then sure you'll get charged the resort fee. Good luck!
