Reviews of this Property
We stayed at Terribles in 2005. It was a long planned vacation and we found the hotel to be very nice for the price. When we travel, all we expect is a clean room to stay in. We got that. If I had any complaint at all, it would be the size of the bathroom. But, we don't spend a lot of time in there so it really doesn't matter. The food at Bouganvillias was wonderful and the portions were very generous. We ate at the buffet once, but I was not feeling good and didn't really get to taste a lot. My husband said it was very good.
While the casino is small and a bit smokey, we enjoyed playing there. We knew to expect the smoke and so we don't gripe about it. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Housekeeping was quick to work and did a great job.
If the opportunity comes up again, we would stay there in a heartbeat. I just wish that Terribles was on our airline vacation packages list!

I have played at Terrible's casino before and liked it. When I went to book a trip to Vegas at the last minute, I couldn't find a reasonably priced hotel on the strip. So I decided to try Terrible's since it was only $105 per night. Yuck! The hotel is the old Continental and the key word is "old". Rooms were clean but junky. Beds were not comfortable, sink and toilet areas were small, wallpaper was pealing a bit. Our door had a 3/4" gap all along the top of it so noise and light passed through quite easily. People working throughout the casino appeared to hate everyone/life/their job. One blackjack dealer looked like she was about to die of boredom. I asked if she was dealing a long time and she just nodded. I then asked if she hates her job as much as she appears to and she gave me the same nod. The only words she said were, "is the time on your watch right?". When I confirmed it, she had a look of major disappointment. We did get a comp for breakfast at the buffet and then went upstairs to enjoy it. The hostess told us the buffet closed 1 minute before we got there and she wouldn't seat us even though there were plenty of other people still eating in the restaurant. I then asked to speak with a manager and she simply said, "she's in the other restaurant if you want to talk to her". She didn't tell us her name until we asked and she didn't offer to take us over or call her to us. They have signs hung all over the place that say their slot club was voted the best by the local paper. But when you read the small print, you'll see the vote was earned years ago. A couple of women who were on the slot club staff were rude and the line for the club desk was always at least 20 minutes long. I definitely won't stay here again and would encourage you to find someplace else too.

The rooms are large and clean. The prices are right and the casino is fun. The machines pay off pretty good. I've read that some people complain that the casino is noisy. What do they expect? Its a casino with noisy machines going off all the time. That's what I find exciting. If I walked into a quiet casino, I'd leave. The buffet is OK. The food isn't "terrible". I like the place because everything is self contained.

The casino is very noisy, but the room was quiet until 5 AM when the delivery trucks came (North side) with their radios on full blast. There is one place to eat; we didn't try it. There was a separate small room for the bath and toilet, and an adjacent area for sink, coffee maker, hair dryer. The closet was large - no door. The king sized bed was too soft for my husband, but I was comfortable. There was lots of space with a table, a dresser, and a desk, and large windows. We were on the 3rd and top floor. It's really a motel, outdoor parking only, but you can park near your elevator. It's a mile and a half from the center of the strip, so if you have a car it's pretty convenient. For $25.00 a night it's hard to complain too much. The noisy delivery trucks were the only bad thing.
