Gold Coast Hotel in Las Vegas Review

Updated on December 3, 2010

Popular with the locals, Las Vegas on the cheap

The Gold Coast Casino is located about a mile from the Strip, making it a popular stop for locals who like Las Vegas and gaming but don't want to deal with the hassle of The Strip. Gold Coast is also very popular with the Asian popular that lives in Chinatown north of Gold Coast.

Located just a mile west of the Strip, Gold Coast is located right by The Palms and Rio. Despite the economic downturn, this area of Las Vegas is becoming so popular that it's being considered for expansion. The train line that runs through the area might be adding a stop by this intersection, and we might be seeing the development of an East/West strip in Las Vegas that will run all the way to the Strip on Las Vegas Boulevard South. If you need to get to the Strip from Gold Coast right now, you can either take the shuttle bus that stops at the Rio or you can grab a Vegas cab (it should cost under $10). I don't advise walking. 1 mile in Vegas seems like 10 miles.

Room prices and sizes, buffet, entertainment

The lowest level room at Gold Coast is called the Standard Room and it's about 350 square feet. You can get a Standard with either a King bed or two double size beds. Nightly rates start at around $30 and both smoking and non smoking are available. For a few dollars extra you can get a Premium Room, which is a little bigger and a little better appointed. A one bedroom suite will set you back a little under $200 a night, while a two bedroom suite is a little more than that. The suites include extra couches and a separate dining area. You can usually find room and buffet discounts by joining Gold Coast's B Connected program.

For entertainment, Gold Coast tends to stick to a western theme, booking low-level country acts and rodeo riders who for some reason people come to see talk about rodeo. Not really my thing, but maybe it's yours. I would prefer to take the money I saved on the room and grab a ride to the Strip and see some real entertainment or go to a decent nightclub.

The Gold Coast does offer some great buffet deals which you'll want to take advantage of. Sometimes you can get a free buffet or two as part of your hotel package. Forget about counting the calories, you're in Vegas!
