It's really close to convention center. Stayed for 4 nights and had no issues. Good wifi, loads of room for bags, working, clothes etc. rooms might need updating but clean. breakfast was fine. It's basic but fine.

We stayed here over spring break and loved it! The staff was very nice and accommodating, the rooms were comfortable and clean, and the free shuttle saved us so much walking! Absolutely would stay here again

This was our second visit to the Mardi Gras and we weren't disappointed ( the first being 9 years ago). It is clean and comfortable and offers pick up from the airport and a regular shuttle to and from the strip. The staff are all very friendly and always acknowledge guests when passing. The food in the bar is as...

Thank you very much for recognizing our humble charm. Yes, the Mardi Gras may be an older property, but our housekeeping staff works very hard to keep it clean and comfortable. We strive to deliver friendly personalized service to each of our valued guests. It is comments like those that you have so generously shared that make all of our...

Booked by hotwire as a 3 star, and this is a clear 2 star, maybe 1 1/2. Room is big, but dirty and smelly and clearly a 2 star standard if that. Old dated and beaten, the pics do not do it justice at all. These are old rooms with very old mattresses and not at all classy. Think of...

The Mardi Gras Hotel & Casino has operated at this location for nearly forty years. We proudly spent almost thirty-seven of those years as a member of the Best Western brand. In 2013, we chose to leave the brand and operate as an independent hotel. We have not regretted our decision. We are proud of our convenient location, the value...

I chose this hotel because it was close to the Las Vegas Convention Center. That, as it turned out, was the only good thing about it. First, we had items stolen from the room the first day we were there. I told the person at the check-in and was met with smiling indifference, "I'll mention it to the cleaning manager."...

We are genuinely sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Fortunately, the vast majority of the over 170k visitors that stay with us annually do. When they look for an affordable alternative to the much more expensive hotels around the Convention Center they find us. Most appreciate the value equation we present and the hard work of...

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Our 24 hours cancellation policy is clearly published on every channel we partner with, including Travelocity. Therefore, when you secure your reservation for same day arrival, you have booked a non-cancellable reservation. We hold a room based upon your request and often turn away other requests subsequently.

Rented this room through Hotels.com. Pictures looked fine but what a misrepresentation it was! This is not a hotel but a three story Motel.
