Just off the Las Vegas Strip, you will find a handful of hotel and casino properties that were built with locals in mind, but still have an allure to those traveling to Sin City. Silver Sevens is one of those hotels. Only a few blocks from the action, which is easily walkable if you have the energy and the desire, Silver Sevens is smaller than most but still has a lot to offer.
A brief history of Silver Sevens
When it was built in 1981, this casino was meant to be a place where locals could do a little gambling and have a bite to eat. Unfortunately, the Continental Hotel and Casino wasn’t met with open arms and fell into financial despair. The family of Terrible Herbst, the gas station company based in Nevada, saw their chance to get into the casino business and took it in 1999, changing the name to the familiar Terrible’s name that could be seen across Las Vegas. It stayed that way for a dozen years when the company decided to change the branding as part of a major renovation, renaming the property Silver Sevens. While it is not the largest hotel in Las Vegas by a long margin, that doesn’t stop loads of visitors from staying there especially given the modest room rates that are available only a short distance from most of the top tourist destinations.
Gaming at Silver Sevens
The gaming floor at Silver Sevens matches the overall size of the property. At only 35,000 square feet, this casino floor feels almost intimate compared to some of the ones found on Las Vegas Boulevard. However, those thinking that this means it is a less desirable place to gamble are quite incorrect. There are over 1,000 slot machines on the premises, which is more than enough to satisfy any gaming enthusiast. There are also 35 gaming tables where players can throw dice, double down, or watch the spin of the roulette wheel with the same excitement as any other casino in town.
Top 3 Suites at Silver Sevens
With only 305 rooms, this hotel is not going to wow you with its architecture as you approach it like some of the behemoths on the Strip. However, this intimate environment also means waiting less for the elevator and not having to walk half a mile to get everywhere. Here are the top rooms available at Silver Sevens.
While not nearly as lavish as some of the suites you will read about in Las Vegas, the honest truth is that with so much going on in Las Vegas, the last place you are going to want to find yourself is in your room. These suites are a great size at 675 square feet, with a full arrangement of modern amenities. They are the perfect size to lounge about while you are resting without feeling cramped. There is a lot to check out in Las Vegas both at the tables and away from them – you should take the time to enjoy these rooms if you get the chance to unwind.
The weather in Las Vegas is typically great, which means you want to take advantage of being outside when you can. These rooms allow you to do so by having a patio that you can access from inside the room. The rooms open up to the pool area, so you can have your morning coffee poolside to get your day started right!
These aren’t suites, but they are worth mentioning because the value of these rooms compared to some of the ones on the Strip is so good that you will have lots of cash left over to take in all that Las Vegas has to offer. Flat-screen televisions, upgraded showers, and high thread count sheets are all the norm at this hotel.

The One Thing You Can’t Miss at Silver Sevens
To be honest, the majority of your time spent in Las Vegas may be away from this hotel and casino. However, if you decide to keep it local one of the days on your trip, then you will want to check out the oasis that is the Silver Sevens pool area. With fresh towel service, drinks delivered to your chair, and private cabanas for rent, you can slip away into dreamland while you recharge for another exciting night in the city!
