This is my 3rd or 4th time staying at the MGM. I've always found it to be clean and comfortable. The rooms are very nicely decorated and the bathroom/shower are awesome. They have very good security as you have to show your room key to make your way to the elevators. I'm not much of a gambler so I can't comment on the casino but I do know that it's big. Smoking is permitted and there is an obvious cigarette smell present. The bars and restaurants around the casino are very good....generous drinks and quality food.
