This has been my go-to hotel when I’m in Vegas, and for good reason! Its main draw for me is the size of it—it’s on the smaller side (compared to the strip hotels), which means a lot less people inside and a more intimate feel to the indoor layout. Additionally, the rooms are modern, cute, and clean with comfy beds and large mirrors. Lastly, it’s a great value! The rates are likely priced lower due to the location (off the strip), but for me the distance is worth it because of the reduced crowds and exemplary rooms. However, it’s only a short walk to Walgreens or fast food options (McDonald’s, Subway). For a cheaper option than Uber/Lyft to get to the strip, try the monorail—it has a stop at Sahara. The negatives for me include: super crowded rooftop pool (at least during the summer), not a great variety of restaurants, and the sketchiness of the area for walking (you’ll likely be safe; that’s just the Vegas streets for ya I guess). Additional notes: Some areas inside and outside the hotel have a scent of marijuana (if that sort of thing bothers you). Also, the bar in the casino with (sports playing on the TV screens and big comfy chairs) has great service from the bartenders! Very polite and attentive! Professional service overall from the staff, for the most part. If you’re looking for VALUE in Vegas, or are in any way averse to large crowds, this is the place to be!

Our room was clean—the most important thing :). Further we had no issues with hearing other guests during the night, etc. we stayed for 2 nights. However while cleanliness is the most important thing for hotels it’s also the bare minimum. With that in mind, some of the detractions of the Sahara are - under construction…they are renovating the casino and the hotel feel incomplete and disjointed. - detached from the main strip. If you’re trying to explore the Strip on foot, I’d recommend staying in a hotel geographically between Mandalay Bay and the Venetian/Palazzo/Wynn. The Sahara is much father north on the strip and you’ve got some long, less-trafficked stretches of street between this hotel and the main Vegas attractions. Close to some sketch areas. - the area around the hotel smells strongly like weed…it did NOT smell inside the room (for us) but if that’s something that bothers you, it’s def. strong. -not many dining options. And, again, since you’re far away from the main strip, it’s not like you can pop over to a different hotel for a new selection of restaurants. - both pools were horrible. Poorly filtered, again smelling strongly of weed, and way overcrowded. This might just be because we were in Vegas in the peak of summer…you might have better luck with the pools. However the adult’s pool is kind of tucked away…on a separate building…not super chill. If you were planning to lounge by the pool I would recommend looking at a different hotel. - outdated, and updated oddly. I think the Sahara has Way passes it’s heyday. It’s tried to update the rooms, but they’re on the small side and really, really, really, really tacky. Not a dealbreaker by any means. The bed was also comfortable and the shower was in working order. It’s just..,that’s the minimum. 🤦‍♂️ Overall, I think most of the complaints can be overlooked EXCEPT for the distance to the strip. I disliked having to hop the strat bus or an Uber every time I wanted to explore, and that’s not me being a snob, it’s just super inconvenient and at times unsettling (at night, particularly). The staff were very nice , but I’d personally recommend finding a hotel in that mandalay-to-wynn slice of the strip. There is nothing about the Sahara that makes the extra distance worth it.

We stayed 4 nights. The Hotel is located at the very north end of the strip and close to the freeway. If you venture a few blocks north there are some sketchy areas. If you walk south the strip it’s a good long walk. Places look closer than they are. It took us one hour of steady walking to the treasure Island hotel. The lobby is very nice and has a Starbucks in it. All the staff we encountered The were super friendly and courteous. The rooms are dated but clean as one would expect in this price range. There is a safe, iron, hairdryer and small fridge. No microwave or coffee maker. Water pressure was great. There were less than usual number of towels but more were quickly brought up on request. The illuminated mirrors and big screen TV we are a nice touch. The AC worked perfectly despite the 107° temperatures outside. The main pool is absolutely amazing with the gigantic screens, modern sun beds and even private cabanas (extra $). Felt more like a nightclub with the the music and bar. At the door you will be asked to show ID (must be 21+) and room card. Plus, no food or drinks of any kind are allowed in. There were plenty of free self parking in the covered garage. Not sure if the hotel is pet friendly but I saw a gigantic dog exiting the elevator. Overall I would return for a short stay.

I was an invited guest to this casino and decided to go for my birthday in August. The hotel was very adamant about letting you know there was no cleaning service during your stay due to the rise of covid again. On the day of the 17th I left my room and made sure my possessions were put away and my door was completely locked. I returned later that day to find my room was clean, bed made, towels refreshed, restroom cleaned. I thought this was odd since they were so adamant about there being no cleaning service. I begun to look around my room and noticed that my possessions were missing. I frantically looked around and noticed they stole my luggage, shoes, iPad, electronics, sunglasses, clothes, cash, credit cards, cologne. Their hotel employees stole over $3000 worth of stuff. Their demeanor was almost as bad as the experience of being robbed. Their customer service was condescending and rude and discriminatory. Mike the front desk manager was disgustingly rude and crass. They failed in the fundamental aspect of what a hotel should offer and that’s making their guest feel safe. When I told Mike this he said he could cancel my reservation and I could leave the hotel if I felt that way. As an invited guest, or any guest for that matter that’s inexcusable on their behalf. Run far away from this, if you read other reviews theft is a huge issue for them and they will not a thing about it, their employees must be exploiting some loophole in their security and standards because they are robbing their guests blind. Risk management and security are a joke as well.

We came to this hotel in August for 2 nights. We booked the hotel in advance. $92 was withheld from my bank account. We checked in. Since the hotel is old, shabby, unpleasant, we asked for a refund in an hour. I was given a document about the return of $ 92. Now I see on my account that I was charged $ 92 three times. And they returned it only once. That is, they are holding my$184. I can't get through to the accounting department for a week, they don't pick up the phone, they don't call back. I am constantly being transferred somewhere, but no one solves my question. Of course, I will return this money in the end. But it's not worth such nerves. I strongly DO NOT recommend this hotel!
