We had not planed to stay here, but ended up spending 5 nights here after checking out of The Carriage House due to construction work
We booked through Expedia because it was actually cheaper than booking direct through the hotel (wierd I know)
We asked for a quiet room and ended up on the 7th floor of a block near reception (Iris possibly - They all have names but the lady said it was a quieter block with older couples)
It had its own saltwater pool, we had a view of South Point Casino from our room, which is a big spectacular hotel and casino and can be seen for miles
The entrance to the room had two doors, one to get into the annex which was the entrance to rooms A & B and one to get in your room (depending if you were A or B)
I think we were 7005B
The room was extremely modern, big kitchen, washer dryer, Tv in bedroom and lounge, big jacuzzi bath.
The kitchen was well stocked, only misisng our favourite deepsided oven tray
The bed was comfy but I think the walls were a bit thin, I could here some bloke talking next to my head in the middle of the night so had to bang on the wall (I think they checked out after 2 nights so no further problems after that)
The pool was lovely and quiet, no towels at dawn required. The only downside is I went off to play golf in the hills and when I got back found my girlfriend had experienced a storm with thunder and lightning. The forecast was for isolated ,lightning & thunder all wekk. The next day they closed the pool around 12 citing the risk of an incoming storm which never arrived. I realise they worry about the wellbeing of their clientel, but I would prefer to make an informed decision myself. We were forced to hit the malls again as swimming was cancelled for the day
I experenced some scary thunder and lightning that week (I had never seen rain in Vegas during the previous two visits) - I was out on the driving range prior to my round of golf at Legacy CC when a storm rolled in. Most of us headed for shelter - Not too mad fools who were still out there with fork lightning and thunder all around still happily swinging away
So I suppose it is better to play safe
There are some good coupons they give you for free drinks and a free $20 bet per adult at the South Point Casino
The bet comes in the form of credit when you open an account, but we managed to play the slots and end up with a profit of $30 + the two free drinks
Also there is a cinema and bowling complex
The bowling is $1 per person after midnight + tax and shoe hire
I think we got 2 games for 3 people for $15
But it is very busy, a queue formed about 11:45, but the place did not fill until around 12:45
Good fun and good value
The hotel has 5 or 6 pools, we stayed in out complex pool, but our daughter tried out the Fun pool
We did not eat in the hotel or South Point
We self catered our headed to Town Square down the road where there are some good pubs
We ate two times at Millers Ale house there. They do daily specials. We all had the Rib Eye special the 2nd time which was on a Tuesday
Overall a very good hotel, friendly efficient staff would have no problems staying here again
Off strip but if you have a car it is a great place to stay
