“Quiet but very near the Strip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a week at this apart-hotel, perfect for being close but not too close to the heart of LV, and much better value too. Our one bed apartment was much more spacious than a hotel room packing in a dining area, living room and balcony. Kitchen is well equipped for cooking your own breakfast and most probably much more, though we did not try. Swimming pools are located in the middle of each cluster of buildings and looked well maintained but it was winter so we did not venture in.

No lifts, although your room would be max 3 or 4 floors up.

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed our quiet and convenient location just two blocks away from the Strip. It is the best of both worlds, as you can enjoy the benefits of the Strip location, yet be able to enjoy the peace and quiet of the resort.
We look forward to your return stay.

Sincerely,
A

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

I was in town (in December) for a 5 day business meeting. I don't like eating out all the time, so a room with a kitchen was perfect. The room was large and included a living room area, a kitchen with eating area and a bedroom with walk in closet. The bathroom and bathtub were huge and the kitchen was very nice with stone countertops and a gas stove. Everything was clean and in good shape. The living room also had a fireplace, which made everything nice and cozy in the cold weather. I took the shuttle a few times to the strip, it was very punctual. The lobby has a store where you can buy the basic groceries. I was suprised (and happy) that they even carried things like soymilk! I used the fitness center and found it to be of a good size and with a good variety of well-maintained equipment.

The only negative of the room was that there was no desk... which would have been handy.

If I were to stay here again, I would make sure to get a rental car. There is not a lot of traffic on some of the surrounding streets which made me hesistant to walk alone late at night. There was also some grocery stores and a target within a short drive, which would have been useful. There is lots of parking, so that would not have been a problem.

OK, this property was great, great location, friendly staff, fast check in/out. Brought me a crib lickety-split for our baby that was clean & sheets freshly laundered. Room was nice, beds comfortable, awesome TV's in room, great big tub(except filling it you ran out of hot water). Just a nice place, oh & great location

The one downfall: the time share presentation. We agreed to stay here for 99$ for 3 nights in exchange for a 2 HOUR timeshare presentation on their property then they would give us back 199$ in cash. Our presenter was great, friendly, etc but wouldn't take NO for an answer. This 'deal' actually sounds like a really good deal but it's high pressure. The cheapest package they could offer us was 11,000$ and 1200$ down, 15.5% interest rate(and we have great credit) for 5 years, plus maintenance fees monthly, yearling 104$ fee for participating, 45$ a year for rolling any points you don't use, so besides your monthly payment(ours was to be 192$ a month)your looking at an extra 150 to 200 in fees a month. After multiple times of us telling them no thanks they kept sending other people over to try to convince us. 3 1/2 HOURS into this, we finally was adamant about needing to leave & it was clear they were not happy.

The last guy they sent over, we told that it was well past the 2 hours they said this was going to take & we needed to leave, he says: oh don't ever believe them when they tell you 2 hours, you'll always be at these for much longer. Um....OK.

Bottom line, great place, great staff, great food, great rooms, terrible high pressure sales pitch.

My boyfriend and I was in Vegas for a conference at the Sands Center. This resort is just about a 10 minute walk from the center and is situated at a quiet location off the strip. The apartment was a 1-bedroom apartment with its own small kitchen, sitting room and dinning room. Overall, a very spacious apartment even though not as luxurious as some of the other hotels in Vegas. It was clean and the area was quite safe. The only con is that it is about 20 min walk to where all the action is, but you could always take a cab or the free shuttle from the hotel.

I wished they had more shuttles to more areas on the strip. Vons was a great place to order and deliver groceries. Did not like having a room facing the main pool because they played music all day until late evening.

Our fist stay here through the Club Vacations, was a 12 day stay in November. The accommodation was great, we were in building 9, in the middle of the resort. Spacious well equipped one bed condo, with a huge bath. Washer & dryer are on the patio, in a cupboard, otherwise everything is logical.
The staff at Desert Club were all happy people, very helpful, and the complimentary shuttle to the strip is necessary, we used it every day.
On site Gold Mine cafe was okay, but there are so many good food choices on the strip, the Gold Mine was only used once...
The DCR is right next to the brand new High Roller, Las Vegas's answer to the London Eye, but bigger! What else could it be in Vegas?..
The only criticism I have is that we could hear every movement in the flat above us. No worse than the floorboards in most houses, just didn't expect it in a condo! Def didn't spoil the holiday, just be aware, no lifts on resort.
Great features in Deluxe villa, incl iPod docking station, 2 large LCD TV's. massive fridge.
Huge bed!
Will deaf return again?
Hope this is of use to you?

Room Tip: Stay away from Koval Lane at front, very busy!,
