Review & Ratings
Review Date: Dec 2009

I recently spent one night at the Silverton, which was my second single night stay there in the past couple of years. The primary advantage to the Silverton is it's location right off Interstate 15 before you get into town, which is nice if you are driving in from California. I got there around 4PM and pulled up to Valet who was waiting for me and was over to registration in no time. A speedy valet is a nice thing about a small hotel, only 1 person working the front desk is not. Even though there was no one in line, there was a person with a problem at the desk and I ended up waiting almost 15 minutes to check-in. While I was waiting there by myself, I ackwardly kept making eye contact with the surly ""Gift Shop"" person who works at the end of the front desk selling some odds and ends and apparently couldn't help me. Once I finally got checked in, I went to my room at the end of some winding hallways and found the bed completely lacking all bedding. I called downstairs and the hotel manager met me at the elevator with a new set of keys for another room also on the second floor. This time I was much closer to the elevator with a ""prime"" view overlook the freeway and empty high rise condos on the other side.

The room itself is almost identical to the one I had 2 years ago. It is decorated in a vaguely hunting lodge motif with a lot of wood integrated into the decor. I dont know where exactly the enormous leather headboard fits into the lodge theme but whatever... There is love seat and coffee table plus a small writing desk and 2 chairs. The armoire housed a small old-school TV and a mini-bar that touted its ""friendly"" prices and were the cheapest I have ever seen, not much more than a 7-11. The bathroom is nothing special, straight out of a Motel 6 with a single-sink formica vanity and plastic shower/tub combo. While certainly short on decor, the bathroom was clean enough and sported plenty of water pressure in the shower. Everything was in decent enough shape with no major stains or damage to be found. The bed was a bit on the worn side with definite sag towards the middle. Even though I was facing the freeway, there was little road noise and barely noticed being in the landing path of McCarran Airport.

I had one meal at the Sundance Grill, which is their coffee shop and it still is open 24/7. I had a late night breakfast that was pretty good but hardly the greatest deal and it was served up by a bad waitress. The casino is recently expanded to include a small food court and more machine space and has all the latest and greatest machines. It's mix is typical of an off-strip joint minus the good video poker. The comps are certainly nothing to write home about but they sent out frequent free room offers for minimal play, one of which I used for this stay. I played a little keno not far from a bar and received adaquate drink service during the hour or two I played late at night and the next morning. The entire east side of the building is a huge Bass Pro Shop and if that is your thing, it alone may be reason enough to spend a night there.

Overall, my stay at the Silverton was exactly what I had expected. The room is bare bones but clean and if that is all you are looking for, you won't be disappointed. For a small hotel, there is a decent selection of places to eat with addition of the new food court. The casino is big enough and the place as a whole is a pretty good value. It wouldn't be my first choice of a place to stay but free or cheap rooms and the enticing freeway close location make it a good option for the first or last night of a trip.
