The Cannery Casino and Hotel is quite a ways from the Strip, but centrally located near several of the city's most popular attractions. It's only five minutes from the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and about 15 minutes from the Springs Preserve and the Las Vegas Premium Outlets - North.
Accommodations are both comfortable and extremely affordable here. Recently remodeled, a standard room boasts a 37-inch wide-screen plasma TV. Amenities include a hairdryer, an iron and ironing board, Pay-Per-View movies and free wireless internet access. Plus, guests have access to a sparkling pool and Jacuzzi (from spring to early fall), 24-hour room service, a fitness room and a coin-operated laundry facility.
The restaurants at the Cannery showcase exceptional fare along with top-notch service. Waverly's Steakhouse has elegant décor elements -- like dark wood and stunning artwork. It also delivers stellar steaks, chops and seafood with traditional sides. Awaken your taste buds with chile verde, mole poblano and other delicious Mexican dishes in Casa Cocina. Featuring authentic flavors from Italy, Vino's Ristarante cooks up amazing pasta -- and you can get a slice of mouthwatering pizza from Vino's Pizzeria. Classic American favorites are served 24 hours a day at Victory's Café, and the Cannery Row Buffet prepares an array of flavorful foods from all over the world.
Start or end your evening with a drink in one of the Cannery's bars. Pin-Ups Bar has cheap deals on drinks, live entertainment six days a week and posters that pay tribute to the pin-up girls of World War II. For sports viewing on 12 big screens complemented by beer and other spirits, head to Booze & Bets.
Looking for some entertainment? The Club hosts numerous concerts and festivals. Movie fans will adore the high-tech, 16-screen Galaxy Cannery Luxury+ Theatre. And the action never stops in the casino. You'll find countless slots and video poker machines -- ranging in cost from a penny to high limits. In addition to blackjack, craps and roulette, enjoy playing poker in a contemporary, smoke-free room. The Cannery also has a race and sports book, where large TVs broadcast all the day's big games, and a bingo hall, where six sessions are held daily.
Even in the outskirts of Las Vegas, a stay at the Cannery keeps you in the heart of this vibrant city.
