Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Pool and Jacuzzi; poolside food and drink service
  • 24-hour restaurant and room service
  • 24-hour fitness center
  • Free Wi-Fi and wired Internet
  • Free 24-hour shuttle to McCarran International Airport and the Strip
  • Rooms, casino, and lobby renovated in 2012

Cons

  • More popular with locals than tourists
  • Spotty service

Bottom Line

It's not the most exciting casino-hotel in Vegas, but for what it is -- a smaller, more low-key, 327-room hotel off the Strip with a nice pool and a 24-hour restaurant that can be, at times, more affordable than swankier hotels five-minutes away on the Strip -- it's not a bad option. And with major renovations to rooms, the casino, and common area in 2012, the value has only gotten better.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Convenient access to the Strip, the Las Vegas Convention Center, the airport; but still some quality dining options in walking distance

Situated across from the Paradise Shopping Center, just down the road from the great clubs and restaurants at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, the Terrible's Hotel Casino might be off the Strip, but it's still in a very convenient location. Popular restaurants are within a five- to 15-minute walk of the hotel, such as a P.F. Chang's across the street, as well as a number of steakhouses -- Del Frisco's, Ruth's Chris, Gordon Biersch, and Morton's. But if you choose to walk, know that you're probably going to be the only person on the sidewalk.

Just outside the bright lights, bawdy shows, and grandiose structures, there's a Vegas that stretches beyond that dense, 3.5-mile-long line of hotel-casinos on Las Vegas Boulevard known as the Strip. Slightly removed from the incessant hustle are a number of hotels -- located anywhere from a five-minute walk to a five- to 10-minute taxi or shuttle ride from the center of the action -- that offer closer proximity to the Las Vegas Convention Center, a quieter night's sleep, or, at times, a bit more bang for the buck.

Many visitors like to explore all the hotels and attractions along the Strip and once you're there, it's easy to find a taxi at virtually any time of day or night. A generally less expensive option for getting around the area is also the Deuce, a double-decker bus that runs up and down the strip 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and costs $3 to ride. There's also a monorail system, which stops at MGM Grand, Bally's/Paris, Flamingo/Caesars Palace, Harrah's/Imperial Palace, the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Hilton, and the Sahara. Note, however, that the monorail stations are far from one another so it can be a long walk from the station to where you actually want to go. A single-ride ticket is $5; a one-day pass is $13. If you're traveling along the Strip with at least one other person, a cab is often the least expensive and most convenient option.

  • 10-minture, free 24-hour hotel shuttle service to McCarran International Airport (every half-hour)
  • Five-minute drive (or exhaustive 25-minute walk) to the casinos, performances, incredible restaurants, nightclubs, and designer shopping on the Strip
  • Free on-site parking
  • Five-minute drive to the Las Vegas Convention Center

 Rooms

Clean, but basic -- cheap bedding, stale design, and some rooms with outdated tube TVs

A Standard Queen Room in the New Tower
A Standard Queen Room in the New Tower

Rooms were renovated in 2012, adding a soft blue color palatte with brown accents and wood furniture. The overhaul came as part of a $7 million renovation to remodel and expand the property.

  • Standard rooms start at 300 square feet; deluxe rooms start at about 350 square feet -- about average for a hotel room anywhere in the U.S.
  • Suites (600 square feet) also include a pullout sofa, fridge, and a Jacuzzi tub.
  • All rooms have (and all deluxe rooms and suites) have 42-inch flat-screens
  • Coffeemaker in all rooms
  • Free Wi-Fi and hard-wired Internet
  • Smoking rooms available

 Bottom Line

It's not the most exciting casino-hotel in Vegas, but for what it is -- a smaller, more low-key, 327-room hotel off the Strip with a nice pool and a 24-hour restaurant that can be, at times, more affordable than swankier hotels five-minutes away on the Strip -- it's not a bad option. And with major renovations to rooms, the casino, and common area in 2012, the value has only gotten better.
