    From reading the post it seems like all casinos charge a "resort" fee !
    Exactly what is this and how much is it ?
    I'm planning on staying at the Fremont as it is in the heart of downtown and
    I love their seafood buffet.
    I've heard the rooms are small but clean and after all you only sleep there
    the rest of the time your out and about.

    Many downtown casinos do not charge resort fees...the Fremont does not.
    The rest of what you say is true. Four Queens offers similar lodging without resort fee...and right in the middle of things

    You will find resort fees quite prominent on all strip casinos and they can be pretty hefty. I think that they range from $15 on the low end to $28 on the high end per night!! The Plaza, Downtown Grand, GN and the D are the only casinos downtown that charge resort fees. If I missed one, please correct me.

    blues is correct, the Cal, Fremont, MSS (boyd properties) still do not charge a resort fee (hopefully they keep it this way).

    The El Cortez and 4Q also do not charge a resort fee.

    there aren't many other hotel/casinos downtown that still offer rooms, the LVC and binions closed off their rooms, hopefully they reopen one day but I guess they weren't worth keep open. The Spike is no longer a hotel/casino.

    Yes, there have been many threads about all hotels in vegas going resort fee and it being inevitable but I hope that some hotels don't go that way, instead just raising their rates to include fees.

    I use Kayak.com because there is a checkbox so you can see daily hotel rates that includes (for the most part) resort fees. There are some hotels that do not include the fees when you do searches (Palace Station) but many of them do include the total fees when you do searches.

    I believe the Golden Gate also charges a resort fee. I was there on a comp, so was not charged.

    We stayed at the Fremont also and the rooms are comfortable and clean...all I need while I am in Vegas. The bathrooms are small, but doable.

    If you eat at the Fremont (Tony Romas..not sure what other ones) and put your tab on your room, they will deduct 40% at checkout.

    Also liked the 4Q last year...slept like a baby on those comfy beds!

    I believe that the resort fee that the Golden Nugget charges is only $5, which they call a "Fremont Street Experience" fee. I love the GN and this really doesn't bother me. :peace: :beer:

    When we stayed at the El Cortez for Halloween there was a "resort" fee so maybe they use to not but today they do..
    And as far from downtown as it is I won't stay there again.

    The El Cortez does not charge a resort fee. You should call them and ask about the charge.
