    Looking to stay at a different casino Super Bowl weekend and found some decent rates at Aliante. Haven't seen too many posts regarding the casino or rooms. Just wondering what others have thought of Aliante.

    Never stayed there but the casino is very nice. Seemed like an upscale locals joint.

    We've been there a few times on occasion and eaten at the buffet.

    The only problem is it's waaayyyyyy out in the toolies! Far more such than places like Sams Town, which I consider to be off of the beaten path.

    It's actually a clean and classy place. They have a good selection of the machines I like and I seem to do fairly well out there.

    It's well worth it if you are anywhere in the area, but there's nothing there that warrants a special trip. If you stay there, you will DEFINITELY need a car!

    I have been there a few times and stayed there for March Madness this year.

    First the negative. It is a long drive out there. Obviously, you should have a car.

    Now for the good parts. They have $5 table games with good rules available at all times. By this I mean $5 double deck blackjack without Downtown Boyd rules. They have a decent selection of new slots. I ate at three different restaurants, the Mexican joint, the buffet, and Bistro 57. All were very good. I also ate at their food court. I was able to get comps from the pit bosses for my buffet and Bistro 57 meals. They advertise 2 hours of $5 table play as being good for a buffet. Their buffet is very good for an off strip buffet, better by far than Red Rock, which we had via MyVegas. It was a two guys trip, so we had queen beds. The room was a little cramped for those two beds, but was very nice with new furnishings. The bathroom also seemed very new. The resort also has a 16 screen theater, if that floats your boat. Common areas of the casino are pretty immaculately taken care of. It is a 10 year old casino without heavy traffic.

    They have been purchased by Boyd, so that will probably adversely affect their ability for pit bosses to comp the way they did on my last trip. I have been in recent contact with my host about next March and she is hesitant to do anything before October, which we when the takeover is supposed to happen. Total integration of players clubs sometime in 2017.

    As you can probably tell, I am a fan.

    Thanks for the comments. Yes we will have a car, but good to know to expect long drives to downtown or the Strip.

    You should get a commission from them! It looks like a nice casino and thanks for the heads up on the room. Probably have 2 queens also and meet up with my bro for Super Bowl. Hoping to get some future offers with moderate play on this next trip.
