Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

-- Sam "Ace" Rothstein, Casino, 1995

More Messes at the Mirage...

Check out this mess at the Mirage.  It looks like someone just dumped out their ice cooler on the way out of the hotel.  This mess was located at the top of the 4th floor escalator that leads to the access bridge to the parking garage.  It just seems like way too much ice for a spilled drink.

And this place is supposed to be some high end rug joint?  Really?  Once again, tip of the cap to MGM Resorts for running the joint like it's Circus Circus.

Guess the Las Vegas Casino #8

Another disgusting mess of cigs in an ashtray.  I can't recall seeing anything this bad.  I don't even think the El Cortez or Gold Spike would tolerate a mess like this.

Hint:  This a locals hotel that supposedly prides itself on cleanliness and customer service.

Really? The Mirage hits a new low...

How far the mighty have fallen.... 

Check out this kid skateboarding through The Mirage.  This is the corridor with all the fancy stores on the way to the pool.  My video clip shows only a small portion of this kid's activity.  He skateboarded up and down the corridor for at least 5 minutes while I was there, including losing control of his board and almost hitting a patron.  Not once did I see security or anyone from the Mirage tell this kid to stop.  The Mirage was his own personal skate park.

To think the once mighty and proud Mirage has now sunk to this level -- that a kid can skateboard through the joint without as much as even a warning.  Really?  Steve Wynn would be mortified...


Nice job MGM Resorts International...
