Stayed six days at Mardi Gras Hotel and casino memorial day weekend with my family and it was awesome stay. Very convenient to the strip or freemont st. The hotel rooms itself was nice and cleaned and I liked how the rooms was arranged and a bonus was one of our rooms had a beer opener on the wall talk about a hotel perk lol. I would like to suggest they give the grounds keeper a pay raise or bonus because he made the grounds look like a top 5 star resort. Every morning he was outside cleaning t... Read more

If you need ANYTHING, I have found that they're not only courteous and friendly, but always try to help out. And this place seems to stay full, so that's not an easy task. I've stayed here several times. Rooms aren't 'modern,' but are large, clean, and have everything you need. They feel more like 'home,' than motel. Pool is very popular, especially with families. Very convenient area of town.

We were only in town for 1 night, so we just needed a place to lay our head down. The hotel is old, but that shouldn't mean that it is bad. The room (2 Queens beds) was very basic and in need of repairs. First, its a motel - the doors open up to the exterior. Our room was on the ground floor and opened up into the parking lot. The chain lock on the door was broken. The air conditioner was LOUD! So in order to sleep we had to leave it off and deal with the to warm to sleeping conditions in the ro... Read more

pleasantly surprised as it was off the strip and not the best area as I usually stay at monte carlo or excaliber. room was clean and big, more of a suite with nice refrigerator and shuttle was easy to use.

Only had one issue (electrical problem) that was resolved within the hour, other than that it was great. The food as expected was not very good and neither was my bloody marry but the stay was a good peaceful place. Will consider this place for our next visit

After a difficult time assisting my sister in finding an affordable place to stay with a shuttle I called the Mardi Gras and spoke with Eddy. Eddy was amazing! He walked me thru getting my sister taken care of with patience and fantastic customer service. Though I didn't stay here myself, I would, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Mardi Gras to anyone headed to Vegas. Thank you, Eddy!!

If you are looking for a quick place to crash for the night, look no further! The room was clean and the bed was comfy. Our flight got in at 11:30 so we just needed a cheap places to sleep for the night before heading to the Strip. Plus, there was a free shuttle that took us straight to Ballys and we could walk to the Paris from there.

Went to Las Vegas on a stag week with 12 others This is not a glittery Las Vegas hotel but a place to sleep it suited us as a base It is about a five minute taxi ride from the strip or you can get on the monorail there is a station about 800 meters away

Spent 6 nights at the Mardi Gras with my 12 year old daughter. It's about 2 miles from the strip, so close enough to get to, away from the noise. Room was clean, beds were comfortable, pool and property well maintained. I didn't try the restaurant, didn't gamble in their casino, or use the airport shuttle, so I can't speak about those. A great place to sleep and relax after waking the strip during the day. The low resort fee is what attracted me to the Mardi Gras, the excellent stay will br... Read more

This hotel is nice and clean the staff are really friendly. The shuttle bus to the strip is a bit old but does the job, Nil one of the drivers is lovely and very knowledgeable he made the trip more enjoyable. The fridges in the room are very handy just wish they had a kettle luckily we took a travel kettle. The pool has towels which means more room in the suit case.

The hotel is located in a good location and is also not very expensive. But the room was average in terms of cleanliness. They did not have enough towels in the room and the bathroom lock wasn't working either.

Absolute disgrace. On check-out we were informed we were being charged $100 for trashing the room. Not one thing was broken, just a few empty vodka bottles left in the room. Provided no photo evidence of the room to justify the charge. Claimed the room took an hour and a half to clean even though we had only checked out 45 minutes previously. Girl at desk refused to get her manager so we could make a complaint. Ended up having to call the police ourselves. Tried to extort us because we were fore... Read more

We booked this as a stopover after flying in before picking up our car the next day. The place is a bit out of the way. The map looks like it's one block from the strip, but don't let Vegas fool you. Everything is five times as big in real life. It took us about half hour or so to walk from the hotel to the strip which bought us out by the Wynn. There is a metro station about a 5 minute walk from the hotel which is much more convenient than walking. The hotel was comfortable. The air con unit w... Read more

We spent 3 nights at Mard Gras Hotel and were not happy. It was not very clean, rooms needed maintenance, staff were not very helpful and I lost my wallet in their cafe when there were no other people there only the staff. On reporting the loss, the staff showed no concern. I would not recommend it . Was told to call for airport pickup but glad to wait for over an hour for the ride. Very disappointing.

First off, I have to reiterate how lovely the staff is. We stopped here for a cheap place to stay on a long road trip back from camping in Cali. Check-in was a nightmare because the internet went down and the line was out the door already. The gentleman behind the counter was incredibly professional and nice, especially considering the situation. Housekeeping was also great and gave us a couple extra towels (camping- we were grimey). But the room, I just couldn't stomach it. For $35, I know it ... Read more

Immediate upon arrival the staff made me feel so welcome. Especially a waitress named Darlene and a bar tender named Tim, Even the owner himself (Philipee) was present and helpful.

This is an outdated, average property. Having said that, I would stay here again. The reason is the people who work there. Sal at the Front Desk, Maria in Dining, Mil and Rick the shuttle drivers, and Doug the maintenance man. All are service pros who will take great care of you. They have a free shuttle to/from the airport and the Strip. You can book a package which includes a wonderful breakfast buffet along with your room.

Stayed with a school group and felt less secure here than in other Vegas motels. Anyone could have access to rooms with no gates and little security. However, pool area was nice and large. Staff friendly. Some of our rooms on arrival had people still in them, but this was sorted quickly. Breakfast area was spacious. Rooms a little tired but spacious. All linen a little worn and grubby. Too far to comfortably walk to the Strip. However, for the price it was fine.

Situated by the Convention centre, 15 mins. walk from the monorail station. Local mini market nearby, quiet and convenient for airport and routes out of Vegas.

We always use this hotel mainly because it is small (300 rooms) and you won't end up fitting 2000 other people for space at the pool/bar/restaurant. In the past people have mentioned how "tired" the place appears but it is obvious that there is an ongoing process of updateing/improving the place. We particularly like the spacious rooms. The entire staff are friendly, courteous, helpful, this will be part of the reason that this year was probably our 8th stay at this hotel. Mention has been made ... Read more

This place is a pile. The rooms are nearly clean and old. Non smoking rooms reek of smoke.

In general I would say if you are looking for a good value, you will find it here. The facility and furnishings are quite dated, but overall it was not bad relative to the price and location to convention center/monorail. Mini-fridge, iron & ironing board, hair dryer, soap, and conditioning shampoo provided. There is what looks like a little kitchen area, but only thing in it is a mini-fridge. Oddly, just empty counter tops. No coffee. Cons: Front desk is right in casino/bar area where there ... Read more

The hotel was fine, but it's definitely a dive. I wouldn't stay here again as I'd rather pay an extra $50 per night to stay in one of the big hotels. TV had only about 20 stations. But if you want a budget place close to convention center and only 1/2 mile from some of the marquis properties, this is your place. But it is two star, definitely not 3.5 stars.

So I ended up having to stay here because my airbnb cancelled on me the day before my trip...and I wouldn't recommend the place. It was a good price point but if I had known how bad it was I wouldn't have stayed here. The building is really old, the sheets look really old and the bathtub got clogged when I was taking a shower.

We've rented a double queen bedroom for our stay in Vegas, for 3 nights. The hotel is 20 minutes away from the Strip. Service and reception was good. We got a broken hairdryer and when we mentioned it, it got fixed in ten minutes. There was an unpleasant smell in the bathroom one night, but not unbearable, probably the building just being old. Room was clean and had everything we needed. The pool is also pretty ok. Great budget stay in Vegas.

My girlfriend and I absolutely loved the Mardi Gras. We spent four nights here and it was nothing short of spectacular.

I stayed at this hotel for one night in Oct 2016. The following afternoon large blistering bites started to come up on my face, neck, arms and legs. I went to the ER and the physician identified them as bed bug bites. I must have had over 70. The hotel room must have been crawling with them. I emailed the hotel with my concern and photos of the bites and never heard back from them. Terrible hotel that can potentially ruin your vacation.
