Guests of Palace Station will enjoy an extensive array of amenities during their stay as well as a prime location just west of the Las Vegas Strip. This laid-back resort is also conveniently situated next to the I-15. Built in 1976 on 38 acres and originally opened as "The Casino," it became Palace Station, the flagship property for the Station Casinos empire, in 1991. Although the resort has undergone various renovations, including the addition of a 21-story room tower, it's kept a down-to-earth vibe, making it ideal for travelers on a budget who are seeking a good hotel value.The rooms and suites at Palace Station are outfitted for comfort, with things like cable TVs, hair dryers and wireless internet access. An outdoor pool with a hot tub, a fully equipped fitness center, a business center, a gift shop and a courtesy airport/Strip shuttle will also enhance your vacation experience.From classic to ethnic, guests can indulge their taste buds with a wide range of restaurants. Cabo Mexican Restaurant has a fun salsa bar and serves a menu of authentic flavors from south of the border. Pasta Cucina's talented staff cook innovative Italian delights that will please every palate. And the Oyster Bar is an 18-seat, live-action kitchen preparing freshly shucked oysters, steamed clams and homemade seafood pastas.For quick meals, Palace Station boasts the cheerful Grand Café, the all-you-can-eat Feast Buffet, the Food Express Chinese Restaurant, four fast food eateries (Subway, Johnny Rockets, Bonanno's New York Pizzeria and Starbucks) and 24-hour room service.Lively evenings can be spent in Jack's, a pub and sports bar. Local bands also play here several nights a week. The Traxx Bar and Trackside Bar are two more fine spots for cocktails -- including the beloved 99-cent margarita.The casino floor is always busy at Palace Station. You'll find plenty of action in the bingo hall, keno lounge or race and sports book, which boasts 230 seats and 44 large video screens. There's a nonsmoking poker room along with numerous table games and more than 1,600 slot and video poker machines. The resort is unique in that it has an Asian table games area, where guests can try their luck at pai gow tiles and both mini and midi baccarat.Ideal for meetings and special celebrations, Palace Station also features more than 20,000 square feet of event space. It's equipped with state-of-the-art amenities including projectors, DVD players and other technological devices. Catering and other services are available as well.Palace Station is within walking distance of several other restaurants and a short drive from downtown and the Strip -- putting guests near the epicenter of all the big happenings in Las Vegas.-- By Renée LiButti

Not what we paid for
PostedOctober 25, 2013
This trip was not a vacation, it was a family emergency, and at the last minute, so when I was able to get a room on Vegas.com, I was happy to get a room anyplace. The places we typically stay when we visit Las Vegas (4-5 times a year) were all booked up. The Vegas.com write-up calls Palace Station "down to earth," but it was just plain earth. Palace Station's Courtyard rooms are old, dirty, and dusty. In five days, the laptop was covered with dust and lint. Our feet were gray after walking barefoot on the carpet. The bed was old and mushy - not great for baby boomers with bad backs. Old, small tube TV with poor reception. The bathroom had been nicely renovated, but instead of a "real" shower, it was a curtained-off corner of the bathroom. The curtain blew all around - in and out - so the nasty thing kept blowing onto us while we showered, and also flooded the bathroom every morning. We had to get extra towels from the pool to lay on the floor, just so we wouldn't slip and fall. The Grand Cafe restaurant has poor service and food quality (ate there twice). The jacuzzi worked the first 2 nights, but then was barely lukewarm. We reported it every morning and evening, but nothing ever happened. Every person we reported it to, acted as if this was news to them, heretofore unknown. They all promised to "report it to Engineering," but I guess they were all on vacation or something. The daily resort fee is supposed to include a daily newspaper (per registration paperwork, signage in the lobby, the key-card holder, AND this website), but they don't mention anywhere that supplies are limited, and if you're not at the desk at the crack of dawn to pick up your copy, you're SOL. You still get to pay the daily resort fee, though. The neighborhood was iffy; many run-down apartment buildings and extended-stay places right across the street, so it looked dangerous after dark. I know it's Vegas, but some of the "ladies" I saw walking on the street in front of the hotel raised my eyebrows. I would never stay there again, nor would I recommend this hotel/casino to anyone.
