Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is a Boyd Gaming property just West of the Strip next door to Rio and opposite Palms. It is the oldest of these three casinos, and usually has the lowest rates.

The hotel provides a shuttle bus service to guests to take them to both the Strip and the Gold Coast’s sister property The Orleans. It isn’t a very big place, and dining options are limited. It’s more of a place to lay your head than to base yourself for an extended period of time.
