Three stars with nothing to detract from the experience. Gold Coast knows what it is and who they serve, and does a knockout job. Great Asian restaurants, friendly dealers, clean spaces and cheap, great rooms. In fact, I would say their rooms are better than the ones I stayed in at NYNY and Luxor. Of course, the trade off is that you are at least a $10 taxi ride from the strip (and buffet quality reflects the under $10 price). It is also easy to rack up tangible, valuable comps from Boyd, so all in all it is one of the great value places in LV.
