Excalibur

Strip, Las Vegas

The hotel

This good value on-strip casino hotel boasts an enormous pool area and is home to the must-see Tournament of Kings dinner show, complete with knights on horseback, jousting, pyrotechnics and Merlin himself. Las Vegas’s take on old England, the Excalibur would surprise the Knights of the Round Table. But that’s where it leaves England behind and takes on the world. There’s the all-American casino (with 100,000 sq ft of gaming), games arcade, and branch of Johnny Rockets’ famous hamburger chain. There’s Italy, Mexico and Asia (and a bit more America) in its casual restaurants and food court. And there’s Australia in its ‘Thunder from Down Under’ adult show and Australian Bee Gees tribute concert.

Looks lovely from outside all lit up at night. Read less

My stay at the Excalibur was interesting to say the least. Amazing services and friendly staff, very easy to work with. Hotel room was not up to par, very expensive for a room not that clean. Fire alarm went off the 4 days in a row I stayed there and the alarm was EXTREMELY loud. Somewhat disappointing and I most likely won’t be staying there… Read more

Fire alarm went off the 4 days in a row I stayed there and the alarm was EXTREMELY loud. Somewhat disappointing and I most likely won’t be staying there again unfortunately. If I’m going to stay in a hotel in Vegas for 5 days, my experience should be amazing. Read less

I'd never stayed at the Excalibur before and never will again. It was the smokiest casino I've spent more than a half hour in and I've stayed in many places in Vegas.

I'd never stayed at the Excalibur before and never will again. It was the smokiest casino I've spent more than a half hour in and I've stayed in many places in Vegas. I used to live in SoCal, so we visited a few times a year for years and years. It was worse than the only place we stayed off the strip in smokiness. It had NO non-smoking ares of the casino and seemed to have lower ceilings and more smokers than anywhere else we went on the strip - even Fremont Street wasn't as bad. Half the tables were never open the entire time we were there - late at night, early in the morning, midday, early evening... never open. Very few table game options. Thankfully, they're connected to another casino (I don't think I'm allowed to name it, but if you've been to Vegas you know), so we were able to go over there as a sort of second home casino. I'd stayed at the other casino quite a bit before and it's still one of my favorites. (If you stay there, go for a pyramid room.) The rooms were strangely laid out. There was NO full length mirror in the room (or bathroom). The only mirror in the room itself was over a table and impossible to get close to without hitting your head on the lamp that was RIGHT in front of the mirror (see picture). Our room, in particular, had additional issues. Our smoke detector had no battery (the battery door was actually wide open, so you could see this) - that's a federal violation and serious potential risk. The A/C seemed to work almost TOO well when we first got to the room. It was set to 76 or something, but very cold. We turned the temperature up a bit and it was fine until the first night. When we woke up, the A/C no longer worked. It was very humid (and too hot) in our room the rest of the time there. We hadn't been impressed with the front desk, so we didn't think they'd be very helpful. We survived. The fan in the bathroom worked so poorly that though we had it on WHILE we were showering, HOURS later the window would still be fogged up. This made the humidity in the room unbearable at times. The staff everywhere but the front desk/concierge was very friendly and mostly competent. The front desk staff was just terrible. Check-in was a mess and check-out was even worse. The kiosks don't show a detailed receipt and you have to practically beg for one from a supervisor. We needed to talk to one anyway due to all the room issues, but clearly the problems were common, since we waited a very long time. We'll definitely be going back to Vegas, but not staying in the Excalibur again. Read less

In the three days or so that we stayed in this hotel, I see long lines of people checking in everyday. I'm not sure if there is a less busy day, but heck, it's Vegas! It's probably always busy.

In the three days or so that we stayed in this hotel, I see long lines of people checking in everyday. I'm not sure if there is a less busy day, but heck, it's Vegas! It's probably always busy. Anyways, if you want a hotel that's rather reasonable on the budget but ok, then i would recommend Excalibur. The rooms are generally comfy and clean; however, they are a bit outdated (so don't expect too much). It has great location, situated in the Tropicana-Las Vegas Boulevard intersection. The hotel itself is linked by overhead pedestrian bridge to neighboring casinos, thus making it easier for you to explore on foot other hotel casinos like New York-New York to the north, and Tropicana to the east. Likewise, there is a free tram which connects it to its sister MGM Resorts properties to the south like Luxor and Mandalay Bay. When it comes to food, there's a buffet at Excalibur which offers many varieties for whatever you crave. It;s not necessarily superb but still likely one of the cheapest ones you'll get on the strip. Likewise, there's a food court with lots of options. The casino is ok but could get really smoky. The same may prove unbearable for non-smokers and asthmatic people. Read less

I was very disappointed and embarrassed as this was my fiancé first time to vegas and it was his birthday. I booked this hotel in celebration of that. I can tell he was disappointed as well but did not want to hurt my feelings. Never Again!
