Here’s what users have said about the Golden Nugget:

Nice hotel

Rated 4.0 out of 5

Overall, the hotel is nice and secure, although it is a bit far from the strip, requiring an Uber ride. The resort fees charged by the hotel, although common in the area, are seen as an unnecessary expense. The spa services received were not worth the cost, with the facial feeling like a basic moisturizer application and the foot massage lacking in strength. However, the room itself was great with a comfortable bed, and despite the mentioned drawbacks, the reviewer would consider staying again, hoping for lower resort fees and choosing not to avail of the spa services.

Our Anniversary Trip

Rated 3.0 out of 5

Overall, our experience at the hotel was good, but there were a few disappointments. The hotel layout was confusing to navigate, and we couldn’t find the front entrance due to road closures. However, we found the parking garage nearby without much trouble. We specifically booked the hotel for its awesome pool, but it was closed for the season despite the warm weather. This was a letdown for our anniversary trip. The room was spacious but outdated, with drywall and stucco bits scattered about. The bathroom showed signs of lazy renovation work, but it didn’t affect the room’s overall quality.

Vegas trip

Rated 5.0 out of 5

I was disappointed that the pool was closed for the season, and it would have been nice to have a closer look at the sharks and fish. Overall, the service was excellent, although I was let down by the front desk not providing coffee in our room for the entire stay. They mentioned the spa could be used for a free massage, but that turned out to be untrue. Check-in and check-out were easy, and the restaurant that offered breakfast, lunch, and dinner was excellent. However, the Mexican restaurant didn’t leave a high impression. Despite that, I would still recommend this establishment to others as it was conveniently located near the areas we wanted to visit in Vegas. While I didn’t win any money in the casino, I still had an enjoyable experience.
