A few years ago a couple of friends were talking to some girls and asked them where they were staying on their Vegas vacation. The girls answered “Terribles”. Never hearing of Terribles Casino my friends asked the girls if they were staying in a gas station. Until that point the only Terribles my friends and I had ever seen or heard of were gas stations.
Well, those girls can no longer stay at Terribles Hotel and Casino. After undergoing a $7 million facelift the property is now called Silver Sevens.
Affinity’s decision to change the name comes after a $7 million, 18-month renovation that included an expanded bar, new sports book and upgraded rooms…
…“We went with Silver Sevens because it has that vintage feel,” said David Nolan, the property’s general manager.
Not that names matter but I dig Silver Sevens. I’ve stayed at a hotel called The D last week. That name is pretty awful but who cares? The D hotel and casino are both great. Silver Sevens reminds me of slot machines. I like slot machines.
Terribles Silver Sevens is still an inexpensive hotel option just off the Vegas strip on Paradise. The renovations make Silver Sevens one of the better deals for a near strip hotel. Would you rather stay at The Orleans for $50 a night or a newly renovated Silver Sevens? I’d probably opt for the newer hotel rooms. For $10-$20 more you can get a recently renovated room at the Hard Rock. That’s probably the route I’d go.
