I have been an avid Fremont fan since 2012 when I booked my first 'comeback' trip to Vegas in 2012. I live in Minnesota where we have a variety of Native American casinos. After a few years away from regular trips to Vegas, I booked myself at the Plaza. My gut told me that this was not a good choice, so I re-booked at the Fremont instead. I have never regretted this, and have happily stayed at the Fremont as a comped player at least 15 times in the last 4 years. Originally I was a penny slot player, but after some education, I graduated to video poker. I started at the .25 level and then graduated to dollars. At the Fremont, the majority of their dollar VP is located just across from the casino elevators. These are all older coin "players edge" upright machines. In this area are also 2 TITO ticket redemption machines. This area seems to be a magnet for people to collect, chat, bump into the back of your chair and just generally be annoying. In addition, from around 5:30 pm to around 11:00 pm they constantly utilize the overhead paging system to loudly announce "Ticket number 23, 24, 25" your table is ready at Tony Roma's" Blah, Blah Blah. I find myself getting so annoyed that I run down the El Cortez just to get some peace and quiet. The quality of the rooms at Fremont has also slipped. The plumbing runs slow. The AC/Heaters make a ton of noise and at this point I am pretty much over it. Can anyone tell me about what the comped rooms at El Cortez are like? I am thinking about a change, but a bit apprehensive on making a move.
