Just got back from my first Freemont stay..absolutely loved it! So much energy there! Totally enjoyed The California..such nice people and a nice crowd..Our room was on the West tower so close to most things. Did go about all of Vegas as my cousin lives there..went on the High Roller for my 60th birthday...kind of spendy...but great to do at least once..We did well with the California slots..Paid for our trip...and brought home a healthy sum!! So altogether is was a POSITIVE experience...Will definitely stay downtown in the future and most definitely at the California!!!!
