Suncoast Hotel & Casino is a Boyd Gaming-owned locals casino and part of the B Connected slot club. Situated in northwest Las Vegas, the property features a hotel offering scenic views of the nearby mountains, plus great gambling and dining values for both locals and tourists.
Suncoast has 388 deluxe guest rooms and 39 suites that range in size from 1,100 to 2,300 square feet. Rooms range as low as $60 and each features a hair dryer, coffee maker, refrigerator, and safe.

A free shuttle service to and from the airport is available every day at six different times.
The casino offers 95,000 square feet of gaming and features over 2,000 video poker and slot machines, as well as 34 table games. The table games offered include blackjack, roulette, craps, baccarat and pai gow poker. They also have a poker room, a race and sportsbook, plus live bingo.
Suncoast offers guests a variety of restaurant options. For fine dining, try SC Prime Steakhouse & Bar or Salvatore’s. It is a classic-style steakhouse that, in addition to beef entrees, offers seafood, lamb, pork and poultry as well as an extensive wine list. Salvatore’s is an Italian restaurant that serves an assortment of Italian entrees, including veal, chicken, seafood and pasta specialties.
For something more casual, there is a Du-Par’s restaurant, seafood at the Oyster Bar, and typical American fare at the Fans Sports Bar. There is also a little bit of everything at the St. Tropez Buffet, which features seven unique serving stations – Italian, Mexican, Mongolian, Seafood, BBQ, Chinese and Dessert. Patrons dine in separated areas to ensure more privacy and a home-like, intimate dining experience.
Entertainment choices include a 16-screen movie theater, a 64-lane bowling alley, a video arcade, a 500-seat showroom plus a full-service salon and spa.
