We had a wonderful Veterans Day three-night weekend stay at the Golden Nugget. We made it a Strip sandwich a less expensive way to spend a week and a weekend in Vegas. This was our first time at the GN and they exceeded my expectations, the GN was first class all the way. Corrie our bellman asked if we were just arriving in Vegas and when we told him we had spent our first few nights on the strip he told us that "they were going to spoil us" and he was right. The overall look of this older hotel was impressive. The Strip takes a lot of energy, long walks, crowded busses. It makes good "cents" if you have a weekend book downtown for less money but still a first class hotel and room. Our room was less than $100.00 and the service was great.

Unique Qualities: Our noon check in with Val was flawless just a short wait in line, bags were delivered to our oversized nicely decorated king non-smoking spotless deluxe 15th floor room in minutes. The bathroom was beautiful, nice amenities, plush towels and a large lighted make up mirror in the sitting area outside the bath. The lobby and halls were well kept and the friendly maids did a great job keeping everything clean. The Café serves reasonably priced meals and the line moves fast due to a friendly well-trained staff. You can give them your name and they will call you in turn if you do not want to stand in the line. We ate there three times for breakfast and once for lunch for under $20.00 and the food was very good. We loved Fremont Street, no one clicks cards at you every few yards and the Veterans Day events were outstanding. Walking is limited and the more relaxed low-key fun atmosphere was a nice break from the strip. We met our friends from California there for the weekend and they had a room with a beautiful view looking right up the strip. Dinner at Lillie Lang try?s was enjoyed by all the food was very good and the service was excellent, our waiter suggested that we add two house rice dishes to our order when we received the bill at $7.00 each I'd avoid this when we go back. The casino was great, full of people having a good time. The free show in the lounge had people clapping and dancing. I took advantage of the free 10:30am Pai Gow Poker lesson from Dave and had a ball playing the game.

When we took the cab from the Strip my wife noticed the Vegas Premium Outlet Mall off of 15 and it was one of the first places we went on Friday afternoon. It would be a five-dollar cab ride but our friends drove so we went over. The girls had a ball shopping but four hours of this was enough for me. Overall Fremont Street was great fun the Golden Nugget is a super hotel at a reasonable price and we plan to return on our next trip to Vegas for another Strip sandwich. Try it you will like it.
