"The only problem I had was when I called The Golden Nugget a day before our arrival date they did not have my name registered. I had to call the free hotel hot line to confirm."

"This was the 1st time we stayed at a downtown hotel and loved the convienence. Fremont street is always fun, you can listen to the bands, wonder the casinos, cruise Fremont st, eat at multiple places and then your room is right there. Also close to the racetrack, which is why we went to Vegas."
