This inactive-but-not-quite-abandoned hotel is a fun explore. The hotel tower was shut down and basically abandoned about ten years ago; however, it is attached to an active casino. So it is kind of a blend of both active site and inactive site explorations.
Mostly, you'll just see identical hallways in varying degrees of decay...
3. Black & white just to spruce things up
However, there is an area full of old slot machines and random odds and ends-
But the best thing this place has to offer is the view from the top floor-
(Not that there's a hole lot to see other than desert, but I like it.)
The hotel does still have electricity, but it is spotty. Most of the lights are either burned out of flickering. The elevators still work though. The west side elevator worked great and ran as smooth as a whistle. The one at the eastern front, however, was another story. Rickety and jerky, I regretted getting in it as soon as the doors closed. It got me back down without incident but next time I'll just take the stairs.
I talked to one of the current employees who told me the casino security guards say the building is rather haunted. They have to do a walk through of the abandoned hotel during their shifts. During the nighttime shifts, some of the security have heard their names whispered in the hallways and various weird sounds. At least a few guests did die in their when it was open, so who knows?
