The Hotel itself is older and dated, but you’re going there for a good time, and a good time you shall have. Be sure to bring a good amount of small bills for tipping the staff, a little generosity can go along way.

Poor 2.0
Stay away-the plain horrible
Dingy hotel. Rooms were old. The wall mounted air-conditioner could barely cool the room. The WIFI in the room did not work and you had to be in the hallway to get any kind of internet. The bathrooms were old and leaky. Old fixtures. Hot water didn't work and all you got was lukewarm water. On top of this, the customer service was the worst. After bringing these problems to the front desk, all you get is a shrug. They claim all the rooms are booked out and can't move you, when you know for a fact that its not true. 4 people from our party paid for rooms but couldn't make it, but the front desk still claimed there was no available room. Just a bunch of sleazy guys out to get your money. Absolute worst!

Fair 4.0
Little less than average
Stayed here years ago and it was a decent place. There have been zero improvements or upgrades since then. The hotel staff failed to perform a wake up call i requested one day, and I am sure housing staff went through my shaving bag. For the price you can get a better place.... The casino can be heard on the 4th floor. Hotel does nothing to curb the panhandling just outside the lobby.

January 2020 stay
I have stayed at Hotel Del Rey several times. It requires about a 40 minute cab ride (time of day dependent, will be longer if rush hour) into downtown from the International Airport. There is a casino on site and the restaurant across the street is very good. A free breakfast included with your stay. If you need transportation I suggest making arrangements in advance while you have internet connectivity and confirm all details. You can get a taxi at airport too.
