The El Capitan in Hawthorne is THE hot spot between Reno and Las Vegas! Pink and blue neon atop the circle bar are reminiscent of an old style Vegas gamblin’ joint. Don’t be deceived because the nostalgia stops there! The latest slots, video poker, great dining, and large, clean rooms make this place an oasis for the weary traveler!
The El Cap gets its name from the famous mountain range located in Yosemite National Park.
