Vegas Uncovered a guide to the Las Vegas Strip

Excalibur, Las Vegas 24 hour bargain buffet pass $25

As well as offering some of the best value rooms in Las Vegas form as low as $24 per night, Excalibur have a new for a mere $25 only $7 more than a standard dinner buffet at Excalibur and less than the cost of a dinner buffet at say Mandalay Bay or Bellagio. This deal is open tyo everyone you do not have to be a guest at the Excalibur. If you play it cleverly you can get 4 meals out of your pass, if you have a late Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner when you purchase the pass and then have the same meal but at an earlier time the next day, for example on day one have breakfast at 10am, then lunch at say 3pm and dinner at 8pm and then breakfast the following day at 9am this will work out at $6.25 per meal on top of this you can of course pop in when you feel like it for a snack of soda !!!

Not only do you get up to 4 meals for $25 you also get a VIP line pass meaning that you will not be standing in line but eating. The all you can eat buffet pass can be purchased from the roundtable cashier.

The Excalibur Buffet does have a slightly bad press but in my experience this is unfair I have eaten there several times and whilst you are not getting the same level of food or service as you do at say Mandalay Bay or Mirage but the food is edible, there is a good choice and it’s always hot. Some people complain that you have to get your own drinks but this for me is actually better as you don’t have to wait for refills, the choice of drinks is very good and by serving myself I can make some interesting combinations. The buffet sometimes includes Tom Turkey and Prime Rib, the breakfast buffet at the roundtable is my favourite sitting as well as the normal American favourites it includes a good choice of Mexican breakfasts and has my wife’s all time favourite eggs Benedict.

All in all this is a very good deal and is the first step in being able to compile an accurate rate of costs before you go to Las Vegas well done Excalibur let us wait and see who follows. This is a true Las Vegas bargain and will I am sure in time be up there with the legendary Ellis Island Steak Special.

For the best night out in Las Vegas chose Nitetours

Darin Feth’s of Nitetours – Tips on Vegas nightlife

Studio 54Getting around
Cab lines ups are long and takes forever, you are better off paying a limo outside the front doors of the hotel. Most of these limo’s are looking for short trips and you can negotiate a classy ride for as low as $25 for a regular SUV or sedan that fits 4 people or a 10 passenger for only $45 total price.

If you prefer to drive, ALWAYS PARK IN VALET, unless it is a Saturday night or a Fight night in Vegas, then you are best to park in the parkade as valet will take you forever to get your car out.

How to save money and go drinking
So you want to go out and enjoy the nightlife, but first you want to “Pre-Sip”
before you hit the clubs. We all know the clubs and ultra lounges charge $12 to $18 per drink (the average person cannot afford that each night), so our Nite Tours secret is to go to the Island Bars in the Casino where they have the video poker. Put $20 into the machine and Tip $5 to the bartender as you receive your first drink. Tip him $5 every third drink and play max on the video poker, but take your time there is NO TIME LIMIT as to how long each hand on the video poker must be played and you can order drinks all night long. If you hit a few good hands you maybe up $$$ so when you cash out you get your $20 back and you tipped $20 for 10 “very Strong Drinks”…There you go, how to get drunk on $20…

Club Line Ups
If you ever see a well dressed guy on the other side of the ropes walk up to youLAX
while you are in line, and asks “Can I help you”? that is your opportunity to tiphim (palm the money) to get into a club. This is an excellent way to by pass long line ups, however you will tip $20 to $30 per person and you will still have to pay the $40 cover, but that sure beats a 2 hour wait to get into the clubs.

Most clubs are dead inside, but they start a line up outside the club. There is nothing you can do about it. A good trick is to get to the clubs early if you are all girls or a mixed couples you will get in. If you are all guys, you might as well pack a lunch, you will be in the line up all night long. Again get to the club early, they always let all the ladies in first. Nite Tours gets into the clubs first before anyone else, and all I see in the club is WOMEN, so if you are a single guy this is PERFECT for you. it is like shooting fish in a barrel, but later on in the evening the clubs change from 80% to 30% women so work your magic early

Excalibur, Las Vegas, NV – My Review

ExcaliburExcalibur

3850 Las Vegas Boulevard Sth,
at W Tropicana Ave,NV 89109
+1 (702) 597 7777
+1 (702) 731 7110
Excalibur Las Vegas

Location favored South End of the Strip sharing the busiest Intersection in the US with bridges to Tropicana and NY NY and an indoor walkway to the Luxor its good. This is a great location not only for the rest of the Strip but also for the Airport, I15 and Las Vegas factory shops.

Theme King Arthur and the Knights of the round table – a medieval castle affair. This is the biggest castle I have ever seen, supposedly based on one of German fairytale fame. You enter over one of many drawbridges guarded by statues of knights, some on horseback; a fanfare announces your arrival at the actual casino entrance (several hundred feet from the Strip) on the medieval travelator. As you enter the casino you will see court jesters and supposedly a fire breathing dragon, and although we have searched for it on many occasions we have never actually had the luck to see it.

Rooms The rooms are fair sized and clean and the basic rooms are dressed with “medieval” tapestries, there are showers and no tubs and they can seem a little dark. There are nicer remodeled room with 42″ plasma TV’s these are called widescreen rooms and reports say that they are very nice.

Attractions The magic motion machine is a 48 seat simulator showing various “simulations”. There is a large arcade, in the basement I like to think of it as the dungeon where all the Children are sent 😉 There is the court jester’s stage upstairs giving a variety of free acts throughout the day.

Pool The pool was always small and horrible and full of kids, its been updated I have not seen it since but the area is not that large so I am guessing that its still small and still full of kids. If you are looking for a good pool scene its not here.

Shows and Entertainment Excalibur does surprisingly well here they have the tournament of kings which is Medieval knights jousting for your pleasure whilst you eat your dinner with only your hands. Thunder from Downunder an Australian Chippendale type revue for the ladies, Louie Anderson a “larger than life” comedian as well as guest headliners.

Dining A cheap and very busy buffet there are reports of it being very poor, I have only eaten breakfast hereExcalibur Buffet and I thought it was good. It’s cheap, so you aren’t going to get lobster but on the other hand it always has massive queues so it can’t be that bad. (B $10.99, L $12.99 D $15.99 and Champagne Sunday lunch $14.99). There is the obligatory 24-hr coffee shop, a very good ice cream parlor and few snack bars as well as more expensive restaurants that I have not eaten in. They also have the WWF Nitro grill for wrestling fans and Wild Bills Saloon and Steakhouse, which has had good reviews. There is also now a Dicks Last Resort which is not for me but perfect for hen or stag nights.

Gaming A huge 123,944 sq ft of medieval fun including nearly 2,500 slots, 60 plus card tables and 7 roulette wheels. Many of the slots here seem to be of a medieval theme involving knights, dragons, fair maidens and the like. There is a very large selection of nickel slots here; well suitable for low rollers like me. Blackjack at $5 per hand, which is low for the strip and, a wonderful electronic roulette machine at 25c a go. The casino is a little dark keeping in with the old school casino but not too cramped although at weekends, probably because of the very low room rates, it did seem to get very crowded.

Drinks service, The drink service here was not bad but not good; we got served a lot quicker once we switched from nickels to quarters. I did get served very quickly when I was playing craps but seemed to be ignored whilst on video roulette.

Overall Excalibur is good value, has a good location and most of all is great fun. If you chose to stay here, and you could do much worse for your dollar, pay the extra $10 a night for a room view. The cheapest rooms face inwards giving you only a view of other rooms which some may like but most will hate.

Good points Great value for money, lots of low limit tables and fun atmosphere

Bad points You do get far more families here than other resorts, there are too many timeshare hawks!

Top Tip Make sure that you pay the extra (or bribe the check in clerk) to get a “view” room standard rooms look at other Excalibur towers.
