Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Party-oriented property with typically eye-catching Hooters touches
  • Modern rooms feature flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, and free bottled water 
  • Two open-late pools with loungers, pool noodles, and poolside parties 
  • Games like beer pong, corn hole, and billiards at poolside bars
  • 24-hour gym includes modern cardio equipment plus free weights
  • Near the airport and monorail -- airport bus stops in front of property
  • Hooter's Restaurant and Hooter's Saloon are both open around the clock
  • Several bars plus a nightclub, theater, and outdoor fire pits
  • Massive casino with table games, slot machines, and scantily clad waitresses
  • Wi-Fi and parking are included in resort fees

Cons

  • Not directly on The Strip -- a five-minute walk away
  • Despite being renovated in 2016, rooms can feel a little worn
  • No minibars in rooms and many lack coffeemakers
  • Mandatory resort fee charged with all stays (common in Vegas)

Bottom Line

Hooters Hotel and Casino is a three-pearl property that's a five-minute walk from The Strip. The value-minded hotel’s 652 air-conditioned rooms have monochromatic interiors with modern touches. Expect flat-screen TVs plus Wi-Fi, though they are looking a little tired and lack minibars. The 30,000-square-foot casino has table games, slot machines, a sports book, and -- of course -- scantily clad waitresses. Lounge chairs surround the hotel’s two party-oriented freshwater pools, which stay open late. Outdoor games like corn hole and a giant beer-pong pitches make sure the ruckus doesn't stop. Dining options include a 24-hour Hooters, a Pizza Hut, a cafe, and multiple bars. Travelers who'd prefer cheap rooms and sky-high thrills might opt for the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino instead, though it's farther from The Strip.

Scene

Fratty, party-centric hotel where the style screams all things Hooters

This fratty casino-hotel, located off the Strip, hosts lively parties at its two pool areas, including one with a backyard area full of games like billiards and pool

Hooters Hotel and Casino opened in 2006 and the overall vibe here might be best described as an exotic blend of a frat house and low-brow casino. Maybe it’s the Hooter's race car parked in the lobby, the 24-hour Hooters restaurant, scantily-clad Hooters’ Girl waitresses, or the loud pool parties -- but this hotel unmistakably caters to men on rowdy getaways (and partiers). The pool is open late, there’s a nightclub, and the hotel has lots of opportunities for to drink and game at the same time. There's a beer-pong pitch, corn hole, billiards, and a pool table all near the pool. The property itself isn’t fancy and most public spaces are styled like a Hooters restaurant. It’s worth noting the hotel’s off-Strip location and low price-point make it a better value than those right on The Strip. However, the casino can sometimes pull in the riffraff, some of whom we saw being ejected from the property during our 2017 visit. Hotel guests are a male-heavy clientele from California, Utah, and New Mexico and -- as you can guess -- not many families.  

Location

Off-Strip location near an indoor golf range, monorail station, and the airport

Map of Hooters Casino Hotel

Hooters Hotel and Casino is located a five- to 10-minute walk from The Strip, near the MGM Grand and Tropicana Hotels. A station for the monorail that runs along The Strip is a quick three-minute walk away (as is a liquor store). Vegas traffic can slow down in a heartbeat, so it’s worth building in some buffer time when traveling around town. Topgolf, a popular indoor driving range and event space, is a five-minute drive (or just over 10 minutes away on foot). Mandalay Bay’s Shark Reef Aquarium is also a five- to 10-minute drive away, while the Bellagio's fountains are within a 10-minute taxi ride. Fremont Street and Downtown Las Vegas’s neon- and lightbulb-studded hotels are 20 minutes from Hooters by car depending on traffic. McCarran International Airport is usually a traffic-free five-minute car ride from Hooters Casino Hotel, and the airport bus stops just outside the hotel.

Rooms

Monochromatic, air-conditioned rooms with flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi, but no minibars

Interiors of the Strip View King look simple and modern following 2016 renovations, but on further inspection, furnishings feel old and tired

At first glance, Hooter’s air-conditioned guest rooms are simple and modern. Expect black, white, and gray interiors with black crown molding, dark wood headboards, and white cafe tables plus accents like porthole mirrors and geometric art. Look a bit closer though, and the rooms feel old and tired -- despite 2016 renovations. Sometimes a coat of paint (or two) just doesn’t cut it. Rooms have either one king or two queen beds plus flat-screen TVs with cable channels and alarm clocks. Irons, ironing boards, safes, and luggage stands all come standard as well. Wi-Fi is included in the hotel's resort fee. However, don't expect minibars or mini-fridges, and coffeemakers aren't standard in most rooms. Bottled water is free. Neutral-toned bathrooms have lots of counter space, hairdryers, and shower/tub combos while vanities with beauty mirrors are found outside of the bathrooms. For a splurge, the property's three suite types offer upgraded amenities like jetted tubs or kitchenettes including coffeemakers. Connecting rooms are available.

Features

Big casino, two party-centric pools that stay open late, and a 24-hour Hooters Restaurant

The big on-site casino is a major draw, with 30,000-square-feet of table games, slot machines, and race book (though the space can attract the riffraff)

Features at this Hooters property are on par with what you'd expect for this good-times brand. For starters, the 30,000-square-foot casino has table games, slot machines, and a race book. While most dealers wear traditional dealer attire, waitresses and some dealers are decked in Hooters uniforms: orange short-shorts and low-cut tank tops. 

Aside from the casino, the hotel’s two freshwater pools are a top draw. They have a distinct party atmosphere and stay open late. Lots of lounge chairs are available, as are floating pool noodles, and there’s also a handicapped pool lift. To help keep that lively vibe going, there are -- expectedly -- lots of places to grab a drink, including poolside. Porch and Backyard -- two of the hotel's most popular bars -- are located next to the pool and have games like air hockey, billiards, foosball, and board games. Backyard adds cooling misters and a giant beer-pong pitch. Indoors, Hooters Saloon features plenty of TVs showing sports in addition to an American menu. It stays open around the clock. There's also a nightclub and a small theater hosts magic shows, concerts, and DJs. 

Hooters Restaurant is open 24 hours a day and serves up the chain's famous wings alongside other fried fare. Southside Eatery is a coffee shop selling snacks, sweets, and craft beer. The Pizza Hut inside of Southside Eatery is a recent addition, and as of our fall 2017 visit a fourth restaurant was being renovated. A gift shop in the lobby sells sundries, souvenirs, and Hooters-branded merchandise. 

The 24-hour gym overlooking the pool is a nice, if unexpected, perk for a party-oriented hotel. It’s stocked with modern machines, cardio equipment, free weights, and dumbbells. Spa services can be arranged, but there’s no dedicated spa area. Meeting space is available as is dry cleaning service (but no laundry). There's also a concierge. Wi-Fi is included in the mandatory resort fee, as is valet parking.
