Property Overview: Main Street Station

We may earn money from the companies and products mentioned in this post.

A Victorian era themed property located in Downtown Las Vegas, Main Street offers more than just gaming and a place to lay your head. Artifacts of historic significance are on display, to include a section of the Berlin Wall, a chandelier from the Coca Cola building and a Bronzed Wild Boar statue. There is also a brewery on site and we are always appreciative of beer options at a good price that are differentiated from traditional domestic options.

Our take on the Main Street Station Hotel and Casino property:

Main Street Station has all the character that newer mega resorts on the Strip lack. The Victorian themed interior of the property offers so much to see from the antique collection to the woodwork and decor of the casino floor. Best yet, Main Street is in a great location just blocks away from the array of entertainment options waiting for you in Downtown Las Vegas.

The accommodations at Main Street Station are clean, comfortable and will make budget minded visitors feel right at home. Hotel guests and gamblers visiting the property are able to find value in the Garden Court Buffet and follow the meal up with a competitively priced beer at Triple 7.

Main Street Station is a property that’s worth a visit even if you wont be staying at the hotel.

  1. We are Boyd Property lovers; so much selection and good hotel comps (although other comps do leave a lot to be desired). Especially love the lack of resort fee on comped rooms. MSS is great for gaming & love the buffet’s value. 777 is also an inexpensive place to enjoy decent craft beers.
    BIG THANKS for the link to the shuttle! That’ll be a huge timesaver next week when we visit Fremont.
    Isn’t there some sort of “secret” historical attraction, having a connection to the old train station? And something special about the men’s room?

  2. The staff here is an added bonus. Bartenders, wait staff, casino floor staff, slot hosts, and the main desk personnel they are all great. Throw in great micro brewed beer and you will have a great stay.
