“I gave it a shot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

I finally gave Bally's a shot.......I go to Vegas quite a bit but just could not make myself stay here...I thought I would try my comps for three nights. When I arrived I asked to be given a north tower room and that was not a problem.
I came with low expectations but when I entered my room I was not that upset. The room was actually fine.......yes the ottoman and chair were blue velvet but it appeared some other furniture might have been updated..........I had a king bed which was not bad other than the mattress felt rather well used !! :) Nothing wrong with the bathroom. The room was huge to say the least and was cleaned daily!
Definitely can't complain for 3 free nights..........I have no idea what the south tower rooms are like but Bally's is situated perfectly at center strip and for the budget minded traveler I don't see any issues with this place at all.
Check in and out was fairly quick also with friendly staff.

Room Tip: Ask for North Tower and provide a $20 tip for the same

We stayed at Bally's in March/April great location for the price. We were a bit upset that if we checked in before 3pm we were going to be charged an extra $28.00 but if we spent the extra $20.00 per night to upgrade to the north tower they would waiver the $28.00. Rooms were ok for the price we paid. Disappointed that we had to pay $10 per day for Internet. If you want to stick to a budget and are travelling around America this is the hotel to save on and spend your money on upgrades in New York ect

Room Tip: Stick to the north tower

Stayed at Ballys for the first time in many years last weekend (Fri/Sat night). Got a a very good rate, considering the mid-Strip location (LV Blvd & Flamingo), which is an easy to walk to many Strip casinos. While this hotel/casino is nice, it's less "glitzy" than its immediate neighbors, like Bellagio, Paris, Caesars, Planet Holloywood.

The room on 16th flr of the north tower overlooked Flamingo Blvd. Room was good-sized, nicely furnished, and comfortable. No problems with the AC, bathroom, and lighting.

The only quibble I would have is the $15 "resort" fee. I realize other hotels also impose it, so why not just include it in the base room rate. While the fee included in-room wifi, it was limited to one wireless device and it did not work that well (hard to boot and slow). Also, the small safe in the closet was too small for a normal-sized laptop (small tablet and wads of cash would fit OK). But the safe had a separate nominal fee (could've been included in the resort fee).

While checking in ate Friday night was easy and quick, check-out on Sunday (at 11am) was a madhouse in the lobby. Waited almost 30 min. in a long line. If you want an express checkout, you need to complete a form during checkin. Hotel should've had a way to checkout via the TV.

Bottom line...if the price is right, this is a decent place to stay because of the location. If you want the Vegas glitz in your hotel, then there are other places for that experience.

We stayed for a week. Upon arriving we were offered and accepted an upgrade to the north tower for $20 a night. As it was our anniversary, we asked for a room that had a view of the fountains. What we got was a room on the 17th floor, right above the ventilation system with a window that didn't seal so there was always a droning noise.

The room itself wasn't bad. It was very clean, roomy and the bed was very comfortable. There was a selection of pillows ranging from chopped foam to feather, a nice touch. Hallways had duct tape over tears in the carpet and the elevator call lights didn't work.

Here's were it all goes bad. Bally's entrance is NOT on the strip, regardless of what anyone tells you. There are conveyers and escalators that take you from the strip to the front entrance. For the first four days none of them were working. This meant hiking up stairs and walking about half a block just to get to the strip. For the remainder of the trip, one escalator and one of the two conveyers leading out were fixed. Yay. Nothing like walking a few extra blocks per day in 100 degree heat.

The Tequila Bar was a complete joke. Our first time there we waited 20 minutes with absolutely no service before walking out. The second time, service was glacially slow. The third time, which wasn't busy, had staff wondering around like zombies, straightening menus and completely ignoring customers. Again we walked out for the last time. As the other restaurants on-site are either closed for renovations or closed early, we had to leave the hotel and walk down the strip in search of food. (back to that broken conveyer thing)

After finding out that the $20 upgrade was only $10 on the Bally's website, we talked to the manager and had that resolved. New visitors need to watch out for that scam being pulled by the front desk. They will also try to charge you for local calls, even though they are included in the resort fee. No offers of a different room due to the noise. We mentioned the broken conveyers, the waterfall that runs down each side of them that hadn't been cleaned in years, and half the lights being burnt out along the conveyers.

What we were told stops us from ever coming back. The manager said "the escalators were old and they had to order parts." (fair enough) They also "break down often". (wouldn't you keep parts on hand then?) "The waterfalls are not going to be cleaned and the bulbs won't be replaced anytime soon." "All efforts are going into renovating the south tower."

Excuse me? Fixing up rooms is their only priority while guests can't get in or out of the building? How about upgrading the conveyers? Remember, you need to get out to eat as you can't get any food other than the fancy Steakhouse! Las Vegas has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country, but they still can't get anyone to repair an escalator.

Too many good hotels in Vegas to bother with this one. If you like long walks, try Hooters.

I stayed at Bally's a few years ago and loved it. I went last week and it was horrible. The furniture was from the 1070's and the staff was rude and pushy. Even though I love the location I will never stay there again!

Our stay here didnt start out well but has ended nicely. We booked a room in the North Tower with a $10 upgrade and when we checked in we upgraded again to a suite. The suite was a total disaster. The jacuzzi didnt work and it just wasnt very clean.
The next morning we asked to go back to a regular room in the North Tower and this was a nice experience. The front desk staff was very helpful.
The new room was marvelous and very clean. The king size bed was awesome.
The pool area is very large and nice. Would recommend it.
The casino is a little smoky but worked fine for us.
The location is the best part of Bally's. Right in the middle of the strip
Bally's is a little dated but its a great value.

We stayed here again with 2 of our girls celebrating a 21 st birthday. Great hotel for a first visit to Las Vegas. Perfect location, good size rooms and friendly staff. Stayed in North tower first night and South tower the next 3 nights. 1st time in North tower and yes rooms have been renovated but not much differnce than South tower room. South tower rooms have better views. Will stay here again.
