Excalibur

The 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.

5 night stay: Sunday 6/14 thru Friday 6/19/20. Book a 'free' room w/ American Airlines freq flyer miles + 39.60 per night resort fee. Because I booked w/ Amer Airlines, they didn't know my MGM no. Before doing anything, I asked armed, unformed security guard where the MGM rewards desk was. closed. whatever you need to go: wait in the (short) line as if you're checking in. Ok, so, when they are open, where are they. Answer: (In case you didn't hear me, THEY'RE CLOSED. WHAT PART OF CLOSED DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND. Ok, got it. I go to check in early. Front desk can't look up my MGM number! Really! She sets me up for a text when the room. I complain about MGM rewards closed. Front desk gal gets them on the phone. She insists they are open (she just talked to them.) They are just 140 feet away. Trust me, they are there. Guess what, they were there. I wanted to track down the security guard, but thought better. Nice guy, MGM rewards guy finds my number, and places it in my current file/folio ! Voila! Instructions: Come back to the rewards desk within 24 hours of check out and they will apply my points to my anticipated bill of 193.00 for just resort fees, nothing else. The night b4 checking out, I go to the Rewards desk, hoping to pull it off. Ok, she does it. Ok, give me a printout of what you just did. She says they don't have a printer. I remind her of a printer 8 feet away from her. Oh, well, over here, we can't print out room charges stuff. Ok, give me a confirmation number on the transaction you did in order to give me the 110.00 whacked off of my hotel bill. Ugh, err, there isn't one. So, where's the proof ? Trust me, it's in the system. You can go to the front desk and they can print it out for you. When ? Now ? Right now? RIGHT NOW. I went to the front desk and told them that Ms. ABC just whacked 110.00 off my bill. Can you print it out for me? They don't see anything. So, I go back to MGM Rewards and tell Ms ABC what happened. She offers to go to the front desk with me. We go. I get another front desk gal, but I had written down the name of the front desk gal from 10 minutes earlier who said she couldn't see anything (who was still there waiting on others.) The new front desk gal can't see it either. They get a supervisor. Supervisor says, "TRUST ME, I GOT YOU! I GOT THIS ! YOU ARE GOLDEN ! Can you print it out for me. She says yes. She proceeds to show me a very short current bill with a total of something very cheap like 44.50 and then some hand written notes adding on an extra 30.00 or thereabouts. Handwritten grand total of 73.40 which equals MORE THAN I DESERVED. They whacked 125.00 off my bill. I was only entitled to 110.00 wow, is it just me, or do you have to watch these people every second. room: super view facing due North. Facing NY NY Casino and everything else. cable was not very good: no CNN, they had fox news and MSNBC. No CNBC stock market, but they had Bloomberg Financial channel. cable was missing some of other channels. don't hold me to this but lacking in channels like: nat'l geogr, tnt, a&e. It had some of what we look for buy DEFINITELY LACKING. Nobody said anything, but no maid service whatsoever. No door knocks, offers for towels, shampoo. I didn't care. within 1 hour of checking in, I couldn't close a dresser drawer. I told a maid in the hall." I don't really care, I won't check out til friday, but you'll need to fix this." I got a DECEPTIVE / FALSE re-assurance that they are all over the problem (but didn't come out and say they were going to fix it asap, but they acted like that..) THEY NEVER FIXED IT. I didn't care. I packed out my trash every day. DON'T FORGET ! VERY GOOD VIEWS ! 4 pools; 1 was kind of, sort of requiring a secondary admission; not really but the only chairs / beds required a payment. You can go there but just don't use their beds and you'll be fine, but 100% of everybody else has some sort of wrist band because I was the only one who didn't pay for a chaise / cabana. 3 other pools were just fine, except for a lot of kids. One pool was 'closed' but you could sit around it. It was closed until 2 or 3 pm on at least 2 days. they didn't want to pay the money for that many lifeguards when the hotel was only 30% full. Gambling: roulette has a green 0, 00, AND WOULD YOU BELIEVE A 000. blackjack only paid 6 for 5 (instead of 3 for 2.) Almost all the time, the only crap tables open were crapless craps (they didn't have the no pass line--about a 49% chance of winning.) truth be told, the best bet in Las Vegas. Had to walk to NY, NY to play craps. room decor. very nice. I had 2 queens for just 1 person. everything worked. I bring my own extension cord, so I won't be complaining about outlets. Security guards watched the people, but didn't really ask anyone for room keys; remember, very laid back, just 30% occupancy. they had the covid thing covered. sticker on my room door saying that nobody has been in this room since it was disenfected. free bottle of hand sanitizer; free mask in the room. free tool used to open doors without having to touch the door handle. ALMOST NO CUSTOMERS. free parking. a longer walk to self parking, but I alway got spaces very, very close to the parking lot entrance. Read less

The casino placed a garbage container inside of a large concrete container and placed that within a handicapped-accessible parking spot. There was a faded - yellow - line on the ramp side with no indication of the ramp stripes. I parked as close to the container as possible as I was concerned someone would key the car in case that was not an ADA spot next to the space with a ramp area. I had no idea how the lot would fill up overnight and the client needed a spot right across from the Resort Tower. When I backed out of the space the next morning I heard a scrape across the front of the car. I got out and saw that the garbage bin had gouged the front side panel. I called the main line of the casino to get a report of the incident because of how stupid it was - not to mention against ADA compliance - to have a garbage bin inside that space. For all I know someone pushed it closer to the van to get it out of their space. For some reason the phone agent called the head of security over, someone in a suit acting overly important with an earpiece and who took his time to ask me what I needed help with. I said I dont know, they called you over. He clutched his wire and walked away. When I called the main line again and connected Theresa, the same person I spoke with before, I could overhear both sides of the conversation. They didnt know what to do even though I had told them both specifically I wanted to talk to the lot manager. They called more security to come over. Someone on a bike also came over to ask me if I wanted him to take pictures and I said no, I wanted a manager who is responsible for the lot to come over. I called the main line again and again connected with Theresa. She seemed panicked and called another "neon jacket" parking rep over instead. I called again to ask why people were being called over who had nothing to do with handling these issues. She finally called the parking lot manager. His name is Oscar. When he came over he also looked confused, the standard expression of this group. I explained to him that they have a large garbage bin taking up a single space handicap spot that scratched my van. He said, and I quote: "I dont handle those bins in the lot. Thats facilities. They put them there." He took - NO - responsibility. He asked me what I wanted to do and eventually got to saying we could fill out an incident report. He runs back inside to get paperwork. Mind you this is 45 minutes later by the time he showed up and we are already late for getting on the road. I have a feeling they pull this routine of all the time to get the complainant to go away by making them wait over an hour to be heard. I called the main line again to ask for an actual manager because I had my doubts about any of these people knowing the correct procedure for reporting an incident in their lot, which is crazy considering the number of people that go through here. After some time a shift manager named Toby walks out to greet the group. He asked me to explain my issue but then immediately starts talking over me: "Here is what I can do" - He then turns to head of security and like a goon talking out the side of his mouth he said to him: "Are you ready for this? Watch this" and starts filling out buffet tickets for that day. I politely tell him that we are on our way out and not returning, so if his point is to dissuade me in not filing a report by comping me buffet tickets, that would not work. He just goes silent and walks away. Oscar comes back, we fill out a sheet, he tells me they will review video and get back to me with their claims department. He takes some photos, tells me their claims department will get back to me in about a week or two at most, and they are off. Everyone then dispersed. As I get ready to pull away, a security guard comes out of nowhere to start taking pictures of my client through the rear passenger window who is severely disabled and in a powered wheelchair. He is wearing a facemask - pre-pandemic! Can you imagine how scared the client must have felt when someone who looks like a commando is peering into our vehicle to get photos of them! I get out of the van and ask him if he is head of security and not the guy in the suit I first talked to. He very lazily answers "I am just doing my job sir" and does no damage-control. Did the casino send this guy out to take photos and intimidate us? As we are exiting the end of the lot he again rolls his bike down to the van and flashes the camera into my vehicle several times, directly at my face - WHILE I AM DRIVING - again escalating something that seemed resolved with some friendly discussion into what seemed an aggressive act to dissuade us from returning. It seems this casino openly discriminates against handicapped people: earlier in our stay the client accidentally pushed a call button on one of the slot machines. They have cerebral palsy. Instead of one of the floor staff coming over a pit boss came over and immediately asked her for her ID. She could not produce one quickly enough so he threatened to ban her from the floor. This was clearly harassment to get the disabled client off the floor, so she left the slot and the casino as quickly as possible. If their concerns were valid, they would have stopped her. Such a nice friendly place they have got there. AT NO POINT IN ALL THE MONTHS SINCE THIS INCIDENT HAS ANYONE CONTACTED ME DESPITE REPEATED REQUESTS - OSCAR IS A BALD-FACED LIAR They have no direct email and the Facebook page is a joke where the messages sit unread. I had to scour the internet until I found an email that did not return a bounceback message. I called them when I let some days pass and did not receive an email reply. Again I got bounced around until I was directed to Guest "Relations" where I left a voicemail. NO RESPONSE. YOU WILL GET NO RESPONSE TO ANY ISSUES YOU HAVE This place stinks - and I mean literally! The morning we left there was a sewage smell everywhere we went inside and outside. It was like a cloud hanging over the "castle." While outside talking to these people, someone equally perturbed by the lack of service here yelled "Bye stinky Excalibur!" I think the moniker fits. Don't worry you goombas! I will never return to your sludge factory you call a casino/ hotel! EXCALIBUR or TRIPADVISOR IS PLAYING GAMES BY REPORT/DELETING PHOTOS - - FIND PHOTOS HERE: https://photos.app.goo.gl/NEHrcJiYd9pezu2g9 -- FEEL FREE TO COMMENT - HERE IS SECURITY AFTER SNEAKING UP TO MY VAN AND SCARING MY PASSENGER, JUST BEFORE THEY ROLLED DOWN TO THE EXIT BY WHERE I WAS LEAVING AND FLASHING THE CAMERA IN MY EYES AS I WAS DRIVING AWAY - If you have an issue at this place, can you deal with being ostracized by security, especially in this manner?

We visited Vegas from Jun 15 -19, 2020. We stayed at the Excalibur Hotel. The Excalibur is a nice hotel. We found it was geared more towards families than couples. It had the smallest casino of any of the ones we were in. It had a great arcade in the basement for kids. The arcade included a Dairy Queen and Orange Julius. The arcade and the entire bottom floor were not open all the days we were there. The only restaurant open was Johnny Rockets. We would walk over to New York New York to eat. This was common in all of Vegas. Hotels and casinos were open. Restaurants were hit or miss. None of the shows were open. Most of the tourist attractions were closed. Most of the stores were closed. We rented a car one day to drive to Hoover Dam. It was closed! I didn't know you could close a dam, now, I do. Do your research if you're planning a trip to Vegas. More than just on the computer. You need to actually call places you want to visit. Many places on the internet said they were open and when we got there they weren't Read less
