“Stay on the Strip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2006

Just returned on Saturday, 10-14-06, after staying in a one bedroom deluxe in tower 2 for the week. The facility was nice. Request tower#2. The room was spacious and clean. No problems with staff or with the facility. The major problem with the resort is that is too far from the strip. When you go to Vegas, staying on the strip is the best.. I've been to Vegas x3 in the last 6 years. This was my first off strip experience and I would never do it again. We did not rent a car. Thus we had to rely on the shuttle and taxi. This was a big waste a time.

I can't say anything bad about the resort. However, if you like to gamble, drink liquor and fine dining, this is certainly not the place for you.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2006

We stayed at Fairfield (booked through RCI points) from 02 Sept - 9th Sept. Resort OK. Room was very disappointing - upholstery in living area looked like it could do with a good clean. Amenities good, washer, dryer etc. Room was not "cleaned" during week and we had to complain before it was - we even had to wash our own towels. Check-in manager said someone had put wrong code on room that it why it was only cleaned once during our stay. NOT the standard we are used to from RCI. In the adjoining room to us there were two children - who screamed and made lots of noise from about 6am each day. Not the children's fault! Of-course we were out most of the day, but no matter what time we came in - they were there screaming. As I've said not the childrens fault - why did the parents not have them outdoors playing?? AND Management should not have put us in a room with a connecting door to a family room. When we made our concerns known to Fairfield Management, we were told to put it all in writing. My husband handed the letter in to Desk Manager personally and was told it would be throughly investigated. No apology at the time and certainly ,as yet, no reply from them. I felt that we were treat like "second class citizens" by Fairfield staff.

  • Disliked — Dowdy, stained upholstery that looked like it could do with a good clean. Unfriendly staff
  • Tips/Secrets — Look elsewhere first

I stayed at this resort from Sept 8 - 15. When I checked in it smelled so bad with cigarette smoke. Also, the carpet was all stained and the mattress was so low. The service is getting to be not all that. I visited someone over to the imperial Palace and the mattress was great. It's time for Fairfield to upgrade their Tower I, because everyone is complaining about it. Now it cost you $12.00 for a trip down to Freemont Street. I pnly paid $10.00 to go on a trip to Laughlin which is almost 2 hour away.

We stayed at the Fairfield Grand Desert Resort two years ago in April. We had a two bedroom condo. It was the best place we have ever stayed. The rooms were extremely clean, the activities were awesome, it was absolutely beautiful, there was no casino so you can get away from that environment when you want to. I would recommend it to anybody. We are going to stay there next year in September.

  • Liked — We liked the setup of the condos
  • Disliked — there was nothing that we didn't like
  • Tips/Secrets — have fun

My dad came into a great deal with this hotel, over ebay actually. He won our stay, in the Presidential Suite. Nicest...place...ever. We were four people, in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom suite and we had plenty of room for more people. In fact, we had about 20 people in our room one night, following a relative's wedding. We could have easily lived there. It's not a hotel per-se, but a timeshare, so it's more like a temporary appartment, with all the amenities you would want in a (luxury!) apartment. It was nicer than our house.

  • Liked — The room was amazing. The view as well.
  • Disliked — Nothing at all.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom deluxe suite in Tower 1 at the Grand Desert. The suite was huge and even came with a stacked washer/dryer, full kitchen, and large jacuzzi and separate glass shower in the master bedroom. All of the people we encountered were very nice and pleasant. The pool area was nice with multiple pools and hottubs. Parking was easy: either in the underground parking garage or right outside the doors in spaces. Our only problem was that the suite in tower 1 was a little run down and need of a remodel. The carpet was starting to need replaced, wallpaper was peeling, furniture was worn out - don't get me wrong the suite was clean, tower one is just in need of a remodel. We saw suites in tower 2 and 3 and they were absolutely beautiful. We were told that tower 1 will be remodeled soon, but I would ask to stay in tower 2 or 3 until then for the best suite.

Grand Desert is less than a mile from the strip on Harmon. It is an easy walk to the strip and even closer to the Hard Rock. We had a car though so we drove most of the time. There is no onsite casino or entertainment, so you will need to travel to get to these places. Overall a pretty nice place to stay.
