“Bigger Than You'd Ever Imagined...and the HIGHEST "Resort Fee" around!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This place is BIG. You'll have to take all your preconceived notions about what "big" entails and throw them out the window (if the South Point had windows that open, which they do not).

This should give you an idea of how big this place is: For many years, back in the days when the Jerry Lewis Telethon actually had Jerry Lewis, this was the place that hosted it.

You'd think that a live television event that was so iconic, it could overwhelm any property. Not here. You actually had to go looking for it in one of their massive meeting rooms. Other than some little directional signs, the satellite trucks parked at the side of the hotel and a few more wheelchairs than usual, you'd have no idea that the center of the show business universe was being held there.

The property itself is also massive -- in addition to the meeting rooms, they have a bowling alley, movie theaters, and a huge horse riding stadium.(aka equestrian center), with stables nearby.

When you check in, the counter is fairly close to the valet. DO take advantage of this as you check in. If you decide to self-park for example, you will have to walk a MILE from the garage to your room. Maybe, if you don't have luggage it only seems like a mile; if you have luggage it seems longer.

This hotel has no pretensions of being "hip" and that's kind of welcome. With the bowling alley, etc., and their dining choices, they're after mainstream America, and make no apologies for it. This is the Bellagio for the Branson crowd.

They do have an excellent gym -- but they tack on a $14 a day "resort fee" because of that, whether you use it or not. (BOOOO!) Bad, bad South Point-- you lost a star because of that. Maybe I should make it TWO.

This whole "resort fee" thing is a deliberate way to manipulate the internet search engines, so they can quote a lower price for the room, then jack it up once you get there. Is it dishonest? Yes. Is it illegal? Maybe, but don't expect the Nevada Attorney General to take action anytime soon.

The rooms are clean and quiet -- for some reason, I always get a room overlooking the pool, so I can't comment on what the rooms on the other side are like.

If you've done enough driving on your way to Vegas, keep in mind that this property is not within reasonable walking distance of any of the "strip" casinos. They do have a free shuttle that takes you to Mandalay Bay and back, and from there you can take the tram to the center of the action (MGM Grand, New York, New York, Luxor and Excalibur). PLEASE NOTE that if you have, say, a party of four and they only have three seats on the bus, they ain't adding an extra bus for your convenience. Yes, that means you may have to spring for a taxi to keep your group together.

Restaurants/buffets are decent -- you get a "fun Book" when you check in, so there's usually a buy one, get one coupon for the buffet which makes it a good deal. There's an above average Mexican restaurant on the second floor, and adjacent to that is a bar that specializes in 100 or so different kinds of tequila. Don't worry about over indulging -- by the time you walk back to your room, you'll be sober again.

Room Tip: If you slip the reservation clerk a $20 (fold it under your credit card as you hand it to her) and a...

Thank you for being a valued guest. We appreciate the feedback and will forward your comments to our management team. We want you to know that we had a free shuttle to the strip which ended in December 2008 and there is now a small fee of $8.00 to take the strip shuttle. We have all information posted on our website. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your overall stay. We are sorry for any inconvenience you experienced due to the resort fee and hope this will not be a deciding factor for a future visit.

Sincerely,
Hotel Operations

Yes, the South Point is on the southernmost part of Las Vegas Blvd, but it's not "on the strip." Depending on what type of visit you are planning in Las Vegas, this may be a plus rather than a minus. First of all, you get larger rooms than at most strip or downtown casinos. In addition, the amenities at South Point are equal to those at most of the fancy guys further north on the Blvd. So, really, if location is the only thing standing in your way, I suggest you forget about being "on the strip." South Point has a strip shuttle that will take you up to the craziness. You can also take a city bus further north to downtown.

The pool here is really nice. The hot tub is huge, yet intimate, with a donut shape and little private niches. Adults can unwind in peace and quiet, because not only is there a sign posting an age requirement, the lifeguard actually comes over periodically to make sure it is enforced. No children in the hot tub! They have free reign of the main pool AND a darling kiddie pool. The casino also has a movie theater and bowling alley as well as a food court with Seattle's Best, and ice cream parlor and Steak N' Shake!!! Families will love this place, but so will couples and groups of friends. Sign up for a Club Card for Buffet and drink specials during your visit.

South Point is a locals' favorite, and we should know, after all.

Room Tip: They have smoking and non-smoking rooms!

Thank you for being a valued guest and for considering us to be a family Oasis. We want you to know that your feedback is very important to us and we are happy to hear you enjoyed your experience. Our Jacuzzi area was designed to be a relaxing place for the adults since we didn’t have an area at our pool that adults could go to and just take it easy and unwind. We are glad you enjoyed the Jacuzzi and we appreciate the comments. It is our pleasure to have you stay with us and we look forward to serving you again.

We had a one night stop over in Las Vegas and booked South Point for a very reasonable $50 through Priceline. The room was so spacious, I've never seen a hotel room that big before in my life! We had a room with 2 queen sized beds and there was easily 5 feet between the beds and another 10 feet between the bed and the window. The room was impeccably clean (and I'm fussy!) The bathroom setup was convenient with the toilet and bathtub separate from a long, mirrored makeup and hair area just outside with 2 electrical outlets.

The cafe in the casino was quick and reasonable for breakfast before our flight in the morning.

Valet and front desk check in were both very fast and friendly. There was a business office open 24 hours to print our boarding passes.

I wish we had longer to explore the rest of the hotel because it looks like there were lots of amenities that we would have loved.

The location is convenient for those traveling by air, but it's also only minutes from the strip. We drove and parked in the valet parking at Cesar's Palace while we explored the strip.

Room Tip: Near an elevator so you don't have to walk a long way.

Passed by this hotel for last few years along the 15 fwy heading to the strip and often wondered what it's like. Finally stayed there in August this year and have to say it was worth it. For comparison, we typically stay at hotels such as MGM and Mandalay Bay.

The hotel has an upscale feel to it, similar to its exterior, especially the 600 sq ft rooms (standard). The bathroom is well separated from the sleeping area so someone taking a shower does not wake up others sleeping. Room decor and furnishings was more than I expected.

We ate at the primarily prime rib restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed the dinner. Prime rib was one of the best I've had compared to other vegas hotel restaurants, and also very reasonably priced. The restaurant is styled like a steakhouse, big booths and low lighting for ambience. Coupon book given at check-in had two free dessert coupons which we used. Dessert was better than your typical one as was the hand tossed salad done in front of the table.

We also tried the oyster bar in the casino and found the seafood to be fresh and tasty and very reasonably priced. (The bar advertised half price entrees during the afternoon.)

Big difference between this hotel and a typical strip hotel was the crowds. The casino was not congested like most strip casinos are (good and bad), so if you crave the excitement of a strip hotel, you might find this hotel lacking. The pool on a monday and tuesday was surprisingly quiet.

Wife and i didn't use the bowling alley or movie theater, but at least it's an option.

If you want to get away from the hotel, Maryland parkway is a short 5 minute drive where shopping and restaurants are plentiful.

Would stay here again without a second thought. Now I'm wondering why it took so long to try it out. This is more than just a value hotel. Excellent accommodations, wide availability of restaurants in the hotel, without the crowds.

Stayed here on a Saturday night. Made the reservation on the Internet and was happy to get a room for a night on Labor Day weekend. Price was what I thought it would be.
Our room was nice. Starting to show slight wear on carpet
Check-in was good for the line that was in front of me.
Have stayed here before and will again.

We stayed here for four nights. We were in town visiting family and aren't big gamblers. It's a large hotel with many decent food choices (breakfast, lunch and dinner). Being from the east coast, we (and our girls) enjoyed the bowling alley each morning. We found it fun to be bowling at 7:00 AM (10 AM eastern time) each day. The rooms are nice and ours had a great view of the strip. Would definitely recommend this hotel to families. It was a good value.

We heard about the Hotel/Casino and thought we would check it out and we were pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean and a nice size room. The help was great and accommodating. The casino is nice and layed out nicely. There is a lot of food places to choose from. We at at the Buffet which was good and the Mexican restaurant is excellent.
We didn't need to leave the casino and go elsewhere as there was plenty to do here. Movies, bowling and lots of slots. We would go here again.
