Guests at the Golden Gate experience a side of Las Vegas that is rarely seen … its’ past. It is one of the first hotel casinos to appear in the city and is the longest-running, fully operational hotel in the city. Erected in 1906, this property has seen many significant changes, including adding the Fremont Street Experience just outside its’ doors.

The hotel features ten guest rooms called the “Original 10.” While these rooms have been updated to include modern amenities, they have existed since the hotel first opened. They have seen everyone from tired ranchers to shady mob-men to celebrities spanning the decades. The history of the hotel and these rooms is never disputed and is a unique addition to your Vegas vacation.

Standard smoking and non-smoking guest rooms are available with one queen or two double beds. Suites are more spacious with a California King bed and a plush sectional that provides an additional queen-sized pullout if needed. All guest rooms offer in-room amenities such as an iHome clock/radio, in-room safe, and convenient computer ports. All guests are offered Bath and Body Works personal products.

For more space and much more luxury, the two-bedroom penthouse provides the option for entertaining. Three 50” TVs are located in the living area, with another on the outdoor patio. The balcony also features a built-in fireplace, gas grill, and comfortable seating.

While there is no swimming pool available to guests on-site, you are welcome to enjoy the pool at the nearby sister property, the D Hotel & Casino. Guests also receive two passes to the adults-only Stadium Swim located next door at the Circa.

The hotel is also nearby the I-15 and US-95 freeways for quick travel to the rest of the city if needed. Golden Gate is partnered with Enterprise Car Rental, available at the front desk, and a third-party shuttle service for airport transportation.

For an affordable stay in Vegas, the Golden Gate offers some of the lowest rates in town. This makes it ideal for families on a budget or those with extended stays.

Swimming Pools at the Golden Gate

  • Golden Gate guests have access to the private swimming pool at The D and receive passes to Circa’s Stadium Swim.
  Guests at the Golden Gate are welcome to the swimming pool at the nearby sister property, the D Hotel & Casino. This pool area offers plenty of loungers for those enjoying a splash and some sun, plus a separate hot tub. The D’s pool is not large but is a quiet oasis compared to many other downtown and Strip hotels with massive pool complexes and services. If you are looking for that experience, you can try out the adults-only Stadium Swim at the Circa. Golden Gate guests are provided two free passes to Stadium Swim, where you can enjoy year-round entertainment. The complex includes six temperature-controlled pools and hundreds of lounges spread over three tiers, all in front of a 143-foot HD screen that showcases the most popular sporting events of the day and all-important statistics. Those looking for an even more exciting experience at Stadium Swim can upgrade to a canopy daybed, private cabana, or water couch. Swim-up and walk-up bars are never far away, but you’ll also have a dedicated staff ensuring you have the most luxurious pool experience in Las Vegas, even from your reserved seating. While the Golden Gate does not have a swimming pool of its’ own, it rarely seems to be a problem with plenty of options for those looking for a splash.

Golden Gate is a cheap hotel

  • The Golden Gate offers a rich history and a convenient location at one end of the Fremont Street Experience with affordable room rates.

 

With a convenient location at one end of the Fremont Street Experience, you are ideally situated to enjoy downtown Las Vegas just steps away from the front door. Those planning on visiting the Strip will need to travel a few minutes by bus, rideshare, or personal transportation, but resorts located on the North Strip, like the STRAT and Sahara Las Vegas, are not too far off.

The Golden Gate also offers some of the most affordable rates in Las Vegas, especially downtown or near the Strip. Both smoking and non-smoking rooms are available, as well as the larger Golden Gate Suite and the two-bedroom penthouse. The “Original 10” guest rooms date back to the original hotel opened in 1906, steeped in history.

While there is private parking on-site, other amenities such as the swimming pool, fitness center, and concierge are located at the nearby sister property, the D Hotel & Casino. Each guest room booked at the Golden Gate will receive two tickets to visit Stadium Swim, the adults-only outdoor pool entertainment complex, at another nearby sister property, the Circa.

Because of its age, guest rooms at the hotel may feel dated, especially in comparison to other nearby accommodations. However, the much more affordable room rates make the Golden Gate a popular spot for those visiting Las Vegas.

The museums are a hit with history buffs and anyone interested in Vegas history. The Neonopolis shopping center offers restaurants, entertainment, and attractions at the opposite end of the Fremont Street Experience.

If you plan on visiting Las Vegas Boulevard, you are located just a few minutes’ drive away from the North Strip and popular resorts like the STRAT and Circus Circus. To explore much more of the Strip much more easily, head to the Las Vegas Monorail station located at the Sahara. Ride the monorail to six other convenient stops along the Strip. Multi-day passes are available for those staying in town for a while.

With easy access to the I-15 and US-95 freeways, guests can easily travel the city. However, everything you need is just a stone’s throw away in downtown Vegas or the nearby Strip.
