    We're heading out to Las Vegas for a family wedding and I have a question about room regulations at the Golden Nugget. My elderly aunt, who is on a fixed income, is traveling with her two nieces to the wedding. I told her that to save money they should book a room with 2 double beds and just put 2 adults on the reservation. She is worried that if they find out that a 3rd person is in the room that they'll get kicked out. I figured the hotel honestly wouldn't care if a little old lady had one 40 year old niece in her room or 2.

    Anybody have any experience with this at Golden Nugget or other hotels in Vegas?

    She'll be fine. When I do this, I just have the extra person wait somewhere else while I check in, but even that is probably not necessesary.

    They are not going to get kicked out.

    It would, however, be easier on them to put the third person on the reservation. They will get extra towels, an extra key, etc. The 40 year olds cant come up with $10 ea to help out their elderly Aunt? Just my opinion, I am sure others will think differently. If I was really really low on funds, I would do it, but then again, if I was that low on funds, I would not be staying at the Golden Nugget.....

    If she is that worried about money she can get her own room at the Plaza for $31.

    I have the same predicament about bringing two extra girls with us to our room at the Mirage. At $30/extra per person/per day, for 3 nights...that is quite an upcharge.

    At least they dont charge an extra $25 resort fee for the extra people. :) Ooops, better not give them any ideas, hahaha.

    Yeah really, that wouldn't surprise me down the road. I hate having to tell my friends to go somewhere else during check in, and essentially "sneak in" .. but Id rather take my chances before straight up paying $180 for 2 extra people to stay in a room with 2 queens. Its robbery in my opinion.

    More so than the resort fee. The true occupancy of those rooms is 4, its wrongful advertising. I guess you could argue a resort fee is too, but ..

    I really doubt they care much; yes, tech she should be paying an extra person charge, but people do this all the time. When I hear of young people trying to get 4, 5 or 6 people into the room I go nuts, but in this case no one will really care. The worst that could happen, they might ask for the extra person charge, I doubt it very seriously

    oh and to cousineddy: I would imagine the family is staying at the Nugget so of course they all want to be together, plus the Nugget is a little nicer (I am being nice) than the Plaza...

    It depends.... Personally I think that all of the rooms at the Plaza are nicer than any room in the Carson Tower at the Golden Nugget. The one and only time I stayed in the Carson Tower, the room was about the same as a room at the 4 Queens.

    Thanks everyone. I showed her this thread so she can see that I'm not the only one who thinks she'll be fine with 3 people in the room. I keep telling her it would be really crappy PR for a hotel to kick a little old lady out for having an extra relative in her room.

    I told her not to worry, that the bus station is close by so if they get booted from the Golden Nugget they'd have a place to crash. :goofy: Thankfully she has a great sense of humor.

    Is Carson Tower the one in the way back? I almost feel like thats further from the GN gaming floor than the Plaza is. Such a long walk.

    It is. If you have a room at the end of the hall, it is a full 3 block walk from Fremont St.

    Ok, I was at the Nugget back in March. NASCAR was in town. Saw one group of hillbillies that had 6 people in the room. They weren't hassled at all. I asked them about it, because I was curious why 6 adult men were doing something I stopped doing a few years after I graduated from college.

    Anyway, in similar situations in the past, a tip of a few dollars to the maid got the extra towels and "no questions asked" we were looking for.
