A Las Vegas landmark since 1954, the Castaways (formerly the Showboat) opened as a 100-room motel and casino. After millions of dollars were invested in expansions, the hotel now has 445 modern guest rooms, a 106-lane bowling center, an 80,000 square-foot casino, three restaurants, a showroom and Las Vegas' largest bingo parlor.

Both tower rooms and garden rooms are available. The rooms in the 19-story tower feature dark wood furniture and plush carpet, color coordinated in pleasing earth tones while the garden rooms, by the pool, are less luxurious but newly remodeled, clean and comfortable. Room rates run from $39 to $89 and packages are available for Golf, Bowling and Bingo. There is also an 84-space RV Park complete with full hook-up accommodations, guest house and laundry facilities. RV Space rent is $18.00.
