    Anyone stayed here, and, if so, what do you think?
    Thanks!

    I stayed there quite a while back and had no complaints. It was getting a little worn, but clean. I'm sure some would look down on it as there would be no comparison to the Wynn or the Cosmo. I had no problems with it though. The living area had a full sofa and chair along with a dinette table and four chairs. The bedroom was tight, but livable. The bahroom was also small. I enjoyed watching a football game in the living room with my locals buddy and a couple of cocktails. I was on the lower level on the Boulder side, so casino access was good (all outdoor entrances) my car was 5 seconds from the door.
    The casino was nothing to shout about. Average VP and BJ. I play craps and they can't mess much with it, so that was good. Can't tell you anything about slots. The main bar in the casino has live music and that was nice.
    I ate in the cafe which was ok. The LVA used to have a 241 for the Yukon Grille which I used a few times. The food was good and reasonably priced, but it was very empty each visit. Good for me, bad for them.
    Sam's Town, Eastside Cannery and Boulder Station are all within five minutes, so that gives you gaming options.
    All in all, I can think of worse options.

    Good Luck!

    Have stayed at Arizona Charlies twice on recent trips. As a single male I am not too particular. When you turn the lights off at night all hotel rooms are the same. The casino is OK plenty of machines limited table games. The steak house is pretty good not the buffet. The coffee shop offers a decent Reuben Sandwich. Enjoy.

    Just FYI, the hotel rooms are outside of the casino and not connected to the same building if that is of any concern to you. They provided me with this map of how to get to my room. I paid $35 a night without a resort fee at the time. I think they now charge a resort fee. They had a swimming pool if that matters. Here is the map they provided me.

    I'm not particular - I've stayed in all kinds of places including the Las Vegas Club. This was our worst LV hotel ever, and if we had stayed more than one night, I would have left anyway. Very worn furniture, very strong smell of cleaning solution, and something with several legs walking on the wall. I killed it before my wife saw it, or we wouldn't have lasted one night. The above map is pretty good, and you might not want to walk too far after dark, though we had no issues in that regard.

    Wow, Arizona Charlie's would have a hard time justifying a resort fee...

    Pretty much agree. My home base is the Four Queens, so I'm not snooty by any measure. I stayed at Arizona Charlies Boulder for a week a year or two ago, and it grossed me out.

    Thanks everyone. I think I'm steering clear because of the outside walking between rooms and casino.
