We've been to Main Street Station before for the gambling. 20 times odds with $5 minimums may be the perfect game for the cost conscious craps player. Comp'd 777 micro brews and full pay video poker at the bar make the beer drinking gambler happy. This was our first time, however, checking out the hotel.
If you just walk into the casino to gamble, you may not notice the train station motif evident by the name. You'll see how obvious it is when you walk towards the lobby. The rooms, though, aren't treated with that same motif. The decor seems to be a more modern take on 80s design as you can see in the video below. Meaning the style looks old, but the furniture looks new. Overall, the rooms at Main Street Station aren't very flashy, but they are clean (except the windows) and among the most comfortable rooms in downtown Vegas.
There is in-room WiFi that will run $9.99 per day, but there's also complimentary WiFii around the players club in the area they refer to as a cafe, even though there's no food or drink. There are a handful of bistro tables to sidle up to and snag WiFi for a few minutes. (Tip: There's no password so anyone can use the WiFi. Shhhhhhhh... don't tell anyone.)
Fairly or not, we don't judge rooms downtown the same way we judge rooms on The Strip. Why? The room costs almost the same as the resort fees at some hotels. This recent stay cost $33 with no resort fee and we'll gladly crash here again even if the only place to get coffee in the morning is at the bar.
