Main Street Station is a reliable, inexpensive option when you view your Las Vegas room as just a place to crash after a long night at the tables. It is located downtown, just a short walk from the Fremont Street Experience. The rooms are aging, but perfectly fine. The casino has a wide variety of low limit table and slot options.
Rates run about $40-$50 during the week and I’m seeing many dates available for $33 during the summer. Weekend rates are typically double the weekday rates, going as high as $150 on a few weekends. They are typically in the $80-$100 range, though. If you need more space, suites are available. Suites cannot be booked online, though. You need to call 800-465-0711 to reserve a suite. Main Street Station does not currently charge a resort fee. When you check in, they will put a credit card hold for the remaining balance of the room and tax plus a $100.00 deposit for incidental charges per visit.
Main Street Station is part of Boyd Gaming’s B Connected players club. The B Connected site has a slot search page which allows you to search for your favorite slot machine, video keno or video poker machine. Main Street Station has a wide variety of video poker games with good paytables. NSUDeuces (99.73% return), 9/6 Jacks or Better (99.54% return) and 10/7 Double Bonus (100.17% return) are all available starting at the 25-cent level.
There are only a few dining options at Main Street Station. They have the large Garden Court Buffet and the Triple 7 Restaurant and Brewery. For 24 hour dining, visit the Market Street Cafe at the California.
Main Street Station is connected to the California Hotel by an elevated walkway. They are both Boyd B Connected hotels and share a number of amenities. Main Street Station doesn’t have it’s own pool, but you can wander over to the California and use their rooftop pool. That pool is available for use by California, Main Street Station and Fremont Hotel guests. Similarly, if you are staying at the California and want a buffet, they will send you to Main Street Station. If you want to catch the free shuttle to Sam’s Town (another Boyd property), you catch that at the California. There is no taxi stand at Main Street Station. If you need a cab, you can call for one, but it is faster to walk over the the California where cabs line up on the N. 1st Street side.
