It started out so well, like any new relationship, with fascination and infatuation. There was always great anticipation of the next visit, and each visit was too short.

But Vegas, like a male in midlife-crisis, wants someone younger, richer, with more style. I only come around, now, for gatherings with family or friends. Then I fall back into old patterns and try to rekindle the old excitement. I know my way around, now. I've learned to cut my losses and get what I can. If Vegas shows any interest in a reconciliation, I will probably jump at it. Love is stupid.

Ratings & Reviews

Main Street Station

Main Street Station

I stayed here once, but spent all my time at a convention, so I didn't get to appreciate it. I'll be staying again this week (June 2011). I think it beats the Golden Nugget for beauty. Love the buffet! Gorgeous setting, low prices, great food.

Golden Gate

Golden Gate

Not fancy but has old-time style. Maybe the best diner on Fremont Street. Live pianists singing old standards at the snack bar in the back. They are great; don't forget to tip!

Four Queens

Four Queens

The rooms are nice and updated. Hurray for in-room coffemakers! I have made some good money on the slots, not major jackpots, but good. Just don't bother with the slots in the back. FQ has a nice gold-and-well-lit ambiance and is not too big. I like being able to look out over the casino from the coffee shop, which is much nicer than most. I'm still peeved that they're charging for valet parking, though.

Flamingo

Flamingo

Nicer atmosphere than most; amazing pool. Major points for having Margaritaville adjacent. I also like the garden with the penguins, flamingos, swans, etc. And the Buffet is really pretty; it's one of the few on the Strip that I will go to, because of the waterfalls and tropical surroundings.
