Staff friendly. Room layout large and nice. Bathroom large. Easy parking. Right off interstate. Pawn shops and check cashing places all around. Casino located inside and hallways/lobby reeked of cigarette smoke. Air conditioning required room key and didn’t get really cold. Breakfast was not continental but in the restaurant having to walk through the smoky casino. Toilet was dirty around the base and the outside of the bowl. They shocked the pool early and we couldn’t use it. Overall okay but would not go back there.

The room was very nice and clean. I loved the bathroom - updated and well stocked with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap & lotion. I was very impressed with the staff cleaning the lounge area. she moved every piece of furniture to sweep under.

The only thing I didn't like was that the stale smell of cigarette smoke from the adjoining casino permeated the halls of the hotel.

Food was great, casino was not very busy or smokey, queen suite was spacious at a great price. Only complaint us they put full size flat sheets on bottom which easily came off while sleeping and made sleeping uncomfortable

Pleasant surprise.

We needed a place to stay for a night while traveling through the area and needed something reasonably priced. Staying in the Lake Tahoe area was very spendy so we looked for something away from that area. We took a chance on the Gold Dust and thankfully we were not disappointed. Every hotel in this area is also a casino, which means smoking is allowed. We asked for a room as far away from the smoking area as possible and they not only accommodated our request but gave us a suite. It was very nice for our family (large room with two king beds and a sofa sleeper). It was very clean and comfortable. We did still have a slight smoke smell but I'm sure that cannot be helped. The rate also included breakfast (choice of four hot breakfast options) which was very nice for us. Nice stay.

Great place to stay!

Pros: The Bowling Alley/Arcade. Getting away from Minnesota and my co-workers :)
Cons: Weather, and indoor pool. Still a great hotel.
Location: South Lake Tahoe is nearby, the Mountains are a great view. A very easy drive to Reno (Depending on winter weather)
Gold Dust West has everything! Bowling, Casino, two different restaurants. Good parking, and very easy access to I580/US395. Great view. You could spend a week just at the hotel. Easy access to shopping and other site seeing locations.

Close to freeway, close to family.

This hotel location was convenient for a family visit. Nice, clean accommodations. On site was the Gold Dust West Casino where we had some fun. We had 4 options for free breakfast in the on site restaurant .

Excellent Customer Service from bygone years!

Pros: The Customer Service! An then the full breakfast at our convenience at reasonable times where you have to set your alarm to go get food.
Cons: Make sure casino staff reliezes that not all people gamble &for some older people it could be there 1st time & we really dont know what we were doing.
Location: We were at the Gold Dust West in Carson City, NV. We went to Virginia City, Lake Tahoe, saw the CC mint, V&T railroad, CC museum, a old mine.
From the moment of us (my daughter, my aunt, & myself (a reunion)) checking in the ladies at the desk WOWed us with the best customer service I have seen in over 20 years. The were happy, helpful, friendly and just made you feel like you were the most important guest they had. When we got to our room it didn't have a refrigerator in it that I needed for medication as we were there for 4 nights, when I booked online that is what I read in the description as being in the rooms. We went back to the front desk and asked her about it, she paused for a moment, said something to her manager, who replied before she was even finished with her sentence and had her upgrade us to a room with a refrigerator and microwave. They always greeted us when we walked by asking us how our visit was going and if we needed anything. The customer service at the Grille restaurant was just as fantastic as the hotel had been, even when we were just having coffee and catching up on the past years was just as awesome and right there when we needed anything. When people ask me how my reunion went the first thing that pops out of our mouths is how awesome the staff was and that you rarely get the old time customer service anywhere anymore. Then I tell them about our visit. We are talking of making this a yearly trip and you can bet this is the only place we will stay at. Thank the staff at the Gold Dust West for an unforgettable reunion.
