Check In: We were a group of 6 & we arrived around noon. I had a TR card so could have checked in at the TR desk but we went through the regular line because we wanted 3 rooms together. There were only a few people ahead of us in line. Only one couple in our group wanted a smoking room so the guy at the desk was able to find them a room on Floor 14 and put the other two rooms on Floor 13 of Tower 3. I had free early check in because I was a TR member but it would have been a $25 charge for the other 2 rooms. The guy held the room #s for the other people in our party and we stored their luggage in our room until after 4pm and then all they had to do was go through the fast key/mail pick up line. I know it sounds cheap but it saved $50 to spend later! The other option was going to the TR desk and applying for a card before check in. Check in was swamped later that afternoon and often over the weekend.
The room (1338): Not terrible! After reading some reviews, I brought flip flops to wear on the carpets and in the shower and they weren’t needed. The carpets are old and worn but the room was a good size and clean with comfortable beds. Our bathroom was spotless. The hallways are in way worse shape than the rooms. We were all laughing as we walked through the hallways because they are so rough but that made us pleasantly surprised when we got to our room. We had an ice machine and drink vending machines around the corner which came in handy. The balcony was small and overlooked Harrah’s pool. The air conditioning was too cold – I kept turning it down. We could faintly hear the music from Carnival Court in our room but the others could not.
Food/Drinks: Go to Mexican place on the 5th floor! All the food we got was great and they serve $1 frozen margaritas. We went to Hash House too and the food was excellent but the portions are way too big and since there are no in room fridges (or room safes!), it goes to waste. Share if you can. I signed up for the text deals sent to my phone and I got 2-4-1 coupons for meals at both restaurants. Drink service at the tables and slots was fast. The liquor store is great! We took advantage of that a lot – we were always grabbing beers, pre-mixed drinks and little wines on our way out. A Coors light at the liquor store was $4 and just outside the door at Carnival Court was $7.50. There is a convenience store past the Tower 1 & 2 elevators that had reasonably priced snacks and drinks and a little cafeteria style deli that was good for coffee in the morning. The elevators do get really busy. Sometimes it is worth it to go up and then go down because you’d often find that the elevator would be full when it made its way back down again.
Misc: Be careful if you take the stairs! I thought I would walk up to Floor 14 instead of taking the elevator and got locked in the stairwell. There was no sign on either 13 or 14 that said the doors would be locked. NO outside drinks at the pool. They don’t tell you that when you order your giant frozen drink at Fat Tuesdays but we saw tons of people standing outside the doors to the pool trying to finish them before going in. The casino was redone. It is nothing fancy and kind of small but adequate. The dealers were funny. My parents really enjoyed watching them perform and they were so nice & relaxed at the table – it made them feel comfortable.
Overall, we had a great trip on a budget and would stay there again. The service was great, the location was excellent and the rooms were okay. Really – it’s not that bad! Relax and have fun.
