  Office Manager
My husband and I, my family, and friends have stayed at the Stardust and only at the Stardust for many years. Usually I visit twice a year or more. It broke my heart to find out last year the Stardust would close it's doors on October 31, 2006. The staff has always made us feel at home with great rooms, great food, casino, and their smiling faces which I will miss on November 6, 2006 when I return to Las Vegas for a visit. I regret not being able to say my fairwells in person and I did miss getting the great Stardust Book that was offered to me. I wish all good luck, health, and happeness. I love you all!!!!
GOODBYE MY STARDUST.

  Good bye Stardust
My husband and I just returned from Las vegas Sept 19th. We stayed at the Stardust for the last time. We have visited Las Vegas 6 times and have stayed at the Stardust 5 of those trips. We feel at home there with their friendly staff and and great rooms,buffet, and casino. We are going to miss it but like everything else nothing last for ever. Our hope is that the new hotel uses some the staff and is as friendly as what is sitting on that ground now.
Good Bye Stardust!

  I loved the Stardust
It was my first hotel (major one) I've stayed at. I have been going to Vegas with my parents since I was a baby and now Im 16. Stardust was a great place. I knew where everything was. The only thing I hated was the arcade but who cares lol :-). Anyway I will miss the Stardust so much. It was a very good hotel.

  Good value for money
The Stardust is a nice hotel. Rooms and amenities are good and if you are on a budget, this is a great place to stay. The bar is pretty cosy, they have live shows most of the time. However, unfortunately, the Stardust is located a little too far to the North of the Strip and those Vegas miles are really pretty far. Secondly, it seems the hotel attracts senior visitors. While we were there, I have been trying very hard to discover people in the casino that were below 50. The value for money is good, but if you are interested in staying in a hotel that has it all (bars, restaurants, clubs, gambling, young crowd etc.) I would definitely suggest the New York, New York hotel as a better option because of the people and the location.
All in all, the Stardust is a good hotel to stay in, but there are better options. But then again, the Stardust is a landmark which you should have visited some time.

  I have stayed at the Stardust twice in 2004 and once in 2005 and will be again coming Sept. 2005. The reason? Good quality for the price, friendly staff. Not to far from any other casinos, ever hear of grabbing a bus, very reasonable!!! I arrived at 7 a.m, of course, check in time is at 3. I requested a handicap room, no problem, two would be available soon, two different floors, if I had no prefence to floor, one would be available about 11 or 12. Very accomodating staff as I said. i will continue to stay there as long as it is standing!!!!

  we stayed at the "dust" last May and had a great vacation. we upgraded to a suite in the west tower. great room huge bathroom. it had a mini bar area and a safe. good hotel security at night and a very comfortable big pool area (2 pools) the slots could have been looser but maybe just my luck. ate breakfast free from the players club and had a sitdown staek and lobster for 8.99 that was quite tasty. wish i was there right now!

  My parents use to frequent the Stardust in the 1970s and 1980s as high rollers (They were always comped) so my sister and I literally grew up hanging around the Stardust and after I got married 5 years ago my wife and I started going there. The hotel and casino staff are friendly and courtesy. It is a shame that the owners of the Stardust are talking about possibly ripping it down to build a new mega resort.

  Went to Vegas in February 2004,and took a chance on one of the "older" hotels. It turned out great for the two of us. We were treated very well upon registration and accomodated in a large, clean and well appointed room. We loved the hotel... the older Vegas atmosphere ...without the tacky veneers, without the outside crowds and noise of the "new Strip". The casino was great... busy but not excessively noisy. The single deck blackjack tables were located in a quieter area towards the back which was a nice touch. If you want the artificial glitz of the the veneered 'theme' casinos, you won't get it here. Just a nicely appointed hotel and casino and a good price that made for a great experience. We'll be back!!!

  I was visitng this hoel with a friend. We had reservations for over 4 months when we received a call several weeks before our trip telling us that they overbooked and woul be moving us to another hotel for the last part of our stay. First off, I was sure that any overbooking that did occur happened after our rooms were reserved..so DON'T assume your reservation will be honored..anyway..when we arrived, we were first assigned a no smoking room even though we were smokers..after the desk clerk becoming irritated at having to move us, she did, ad to a room that was FILTHY...the sheets were ragged..even holes in them, the bathroom was filthy, the mat in the tub was nasty and curling up, and the air conditioning was awful...the only time the room got really cool was late at night, and the room had an awful musty smell. I will say that the food was adequate, the casino equal to most others on that part of the strip, and when they did move us, it was to a decent hotel even though it was inconvenient and off the strip. There are too many good hotels to choose from that charge the same or less, so my recommendation is to stay elsewhere

  Stardust had good value. My room was showing some wear, but not to the point of worn out. The staff is very friendly. The buffet reminded me of "Ponderosa" there are better options. If you are seeking a glitzy place with a trendy theme this is not for you. Stardust covers all the bases well enough and did not tie up all my gambling money in cost of staying there.

I have stayed at the Stardust hotel three or four times a year for twenty years. I enjoy the staff and the way management has upgraded the amenities although I miss Enter the Night and Aki (I think that was her name) and rest of the talented cast I do enjoy Wayne Newton. I agree with the reviewer who complained that her "loose" slots were removed the first of the year (we must have been playing the same machines)I found some very good new ones and I am not going to tell her which ones they are, but I wish her and all of the guests of the Stardust Hotel good luck, and lots of fun.

I was the Director of Sales Western States in the Stardust Hotel Sales Department with Mark Swain when Moe Dalitz owned the hotel. I had an office on property and one in Beverly Hills for sixteen or seventeen years. The Stardust Hotel was a great property then and it is a great property now. The service is great. In fact, I have known some of the bellmen and waitresses who are ther now from my days with the hotel. From the minute I arrive at the Stardust and am greeted by Pat, Valet Parking, have the bellman take care of the luggage, check in, until I leave (usually 2 or three days, three of four times a year) my party and I are extended the the same warm courtesy and concern that I have always found to be constant all of these years.

I am familiar with hotels world-over. There are hotels with finer trapings ( retired from the business at the Del Coronado Hotel in San Diego) but my heart belongs to the Stardust Hotel and Casino, in Las Vegas.

We will see you soon.

If you never been to Vegas, don't stay here. It is too far north on the

Strip, and not near anything interesting. The only reason to stay here

is that it might be a little cheaper, and it is only a short cab ride

from the premier properties.

Wayne Newton? He performs so much, he has to save his voice, so you

get a mixed bag of entertainment. Geared toward the 55+ crowd, anyone

younger might not be impressed. Give him credit for being a real worker.

Boyd properties are clean and give value for the money. But if you only

go to vegas once, stay a little farther south on the strip for the

atmosphere of it all.

My wife and I stayed there last year. We had a nice clean room with great service. One night, we just watched our Keno numbers on the TV while we enjoyed

the in Room Jacuzzi. If you want to gamble cheap, you can cross the street to Silver City or next door at Slots of Fun! The only draw back is that it is a good walk from the Southern Strip Hotels.

I can't really say anything yet about this hotel, but I will be staying there in November for 10 nights. We are an exhibitor on Comdex fall 2001 and because we are a rather small company the price for this hotel perfectly fits our budget. We did some research on the internet and overall Stardust seems to be a good value for money hotel. And because we don't gamble that much, our only interest is to have a great view on the strip and have things within walking distance if we want to go anywhere. We also have a car, so that won't be the problem. If anyone has comments or what so ever about the Stardust, please feel free to email me. Everyone's opinion would be appreciated!

My husband, friends, and I have been guests at the Stardust for many years. We have stayed in rooms all over the property and found all of them to be fine. For the information of those who read one of the earlier reviews on this page, the motel rooms have been torn down. The property has been updated with a large reception area near the entrance to the conference center. The Boyd Group, owners of Stardust, have kept if up to date even though it is an older property. Tres Lobos is an excellent Mexican restaurant. We Houstonians, who are familiar with good Mexican food, were surprised at the quality. The buffet and other restaurants are also good. The Slot Club members receive generous comps. The daily slot tournament is a fun way to play slot machines and perhaps win a few dollars. Wayne Newton is the main attraction in the showroom. His is still a great show. If you are looking for a good hotel/casino away from all the crowds, this is it. My only complaint is that on our last trip, our favorite "loose" slot machines had been removed.

My family and I had an interesting experience when we visited the Stardust, since they were remodeling and good section of the hotel, we recieved the Presidential Suite at a VERY affordable rate. Our stay was exceptional! We visited many of the hotels, buffets, and casinos while we were there and the Stardust was one of the most family orriented hotels in the area.
