Local Hotel Favorite Vegas Visitors Will Love

There is not just one local resident favorite hotel. There are a few that residents from the local area of Las Vegas and nearby towns like to frequent. We will single out one of these hotels today to review and to encourage you to visit when you are in Las Vegas. Remember that locals know where the deals are, the best gambling and food are located. So, why not follow their lead.

The hotel in our spotlight is Samstown located on Boulder Highway. Samstown will be 38 years old on April 1st. It’s fairly old in Vegas years, but still has a strong following. In fact, I have stayed there at least ten times over the years and will return again next chance I get.

What does Samstown have to offer? First, a lot of variety in one place. There is really no reason to leave. There is a spacious 25,000 square foot atrium with trees, a creek, and some wild birds, all surrounded by eateries and stores.

There is a movie theater with 18 screens. There is a pub with a dance floor, a TGI Fridays, some fast food outlets, Gatsby’s Salon, and a bowling alley. Oh, and, of course, a spacious, two-floor casino. As we have often reported the slot machine odds are best on Boulder Highway. Samstown has some of the best slot payouts in the Valley. The blackjack is excellent too.

There is a wonderful free attraction called Mystic Falls. It is a laser-water fall show with music and animatronic animals. The theme will change at times and is a real spectacular during the Christmas season. This seasonal display is offered from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day. This show is free and suitable for all ages. The kids will love the animals.

The local folks love Samstown. We are confident you will make it one of your favorites. We should mention that the room rates are very fair and the resort fees lower than the Strip properties.
