The Boardwalk Hotel and Casino was a Coney Island style hotel located on the Las Vegas Strip. It was owned and operated by MGM Mirage. It was part of the Holiday Inn hotel chain until it was acquired by MGM in 2000. It was built before the era of the mega-casinos, and with 654 rooms was relatively small compared to many properties in its vicinity.

The hotel's Coney Island theme could be seen in its facade with an original 1906 parachute jump ride and a faux wooden roller coaster. The hotel was composed of three distinct buildings all built at different times. The newest building was the 16-story tower built in 1996. The Steeplechase building was 6 stories and the Luna Park building was the original four-story structure when the hotel first opened.

The hotel began as the 200-room Holiday Queen, an independent property that opened on this site in 1965 and subsequently became part of the Holiday Inn hotel chain. Norbert Jansen, former owner of Pioneer Club, opened Holiday Gifts adjacent to the hotel, and later Slot Joynt casino. The hotel section was briefly named Viscount Hotel in the 1980s. By 1989, under the management of Jansen, the hotel and casino were branded Boardwalk Hotel & Casino (alternately, Holiday Inn Casino Boardwalk, or Boardwalk Holiday Inn).

Boardwalk became a public corporation (Boardwalk Casino, Inc.) in 1994. The carnival facade was built the following year and a 15-floor, 451-room tower was finished in 1996. It was later acquired by Mirage Resorts in 1997. When MGM took ownership in 2000, the Holiday Inn name was dropped.
