I stayed at the GC from Friday Nov 11th to Tuesday Nov 15th. It was a busy weekend with it being 11/11/11 so hundreds of weddings were happening, add in the Marquez vs Manny fight. I got to the GC close to 6:30pm, and check-in was quick. Small front desk but no line up. This was my 3rd time staying at the Gold Coast (Jan '09, May '11, Nov '11), and I have never been disappointed.
The rooms are big, I have only stayed in the standard room, with a flat scfreen tv, comfy beds. The bathroom is small, but I don't mind really. Room is clean and seems quiet each time I am there. The casino is laid out nicely, easy to navigate with lots of slots. The buffet I enjoy for breakfast and it is really cheap. TGIF is a decent place for even a late night eat as it is open 24 hours. I like the fact they have a free shuttle, you go to The Orleans first then to The Strip. Seems most of the people on it when you get on, are getting off at The Orleans. I believe 30 people can only fit so make sure you are there early. Coming back you may not get on as the dop off/pick up beside Bill's Gamblin Hall gets quite the line up. Sometimes I will take the bus back, or maybe walk in the day.
The Rio and Palms are right next door and across the street so if you are more for gambling, you really have no need to go to The Strip. As well with all 3 properties, lots to choose from to eat. Best thing is, the walk to and from your oom is not like the mega resorts where you need a golf cart. Easy short walk.
The staff are terrific at GC, always pleasant and helpful. I am looking forward to my next stay for the Memorial Day weekend.
Only drawback is, if you are out on The Strip past midnight, you will need to cab it back, so your best bet is get to Bally's or Bill's and grab a cab, it will be a short jaunt and less expensive.
