Well, we went here today for an Octoberfest. $20.00 person for food and one beer. Music/food was to be 12-4pm.
Going up to the hotel there is a small pond with some white ducks. The water was so disguisting the bill on was duck was green from algae/mold. Here's a clue "resort"...clean up your duck pond or move your innocent ducks elseware. The inside of the place was kinda creepy. The windows were FILTHY. We could never eat there. I can only imagine what the rooms look like.
Octoberfest was outside. Lovely view, beautiful blue sky, etc.
ALL the food was really bad and cold. I heard one comment on how it was food like mother used to make. May I ask...where was your mother from? Certainly, not Germany. This food was all pre-made and then just "warmed" up. But, not even warmed up...sausages, sauerkraut, pork, red cabbage, pretzels, spatzle was all gross and cold. Then, there was the german potato salad. It looked like a piece of lard with a few potatoes stuck in. German potato salad is with liquid and a smell of vinegar...not one big lard mass. Desserts(2) had flies buzzing around them. Yeah, it was delicious.
You got one beer included in the price. Well, either these folks had never poured a beer from a tap or they were just idiots. Half of the plastic glass was foam. $5.00 for each extra beer.
Then, there was the "Oompah Band". Some lady had horns on...as in Norway(?). They took a few long breaks and QUIT at 3:15pm. Only played about 5 German songs. The rest was Dixieland Jazz, Country, Pop, etc. Not even a freakin tuba player. Yeah, they were good.
It was a delightful, sunny day in Las Vegas and that was nothing the "resort" could accept gratitude for.
We will never dine, drink or go back to an "Octoberfest" here.

Thank you for stopping by The Resort on Mount Charleston for our Oktoberfest celebration.
I am so very sorry that there was nothing here to your satisfaction.
1) Our pond and ducks. The natural color of the bottom of our pond itself is brown, thus it reflects that color throughout. The algae you refer to on our female ducks bill "Michele" is the natural pigment she was born with. This was not caused by anything in our pond. Our ducks have been with us for over two years now and quite enjoy themselves as do our guests who stay with us. 2) You found our windows to be filthy. Our windows are cleaned weekly, (inside and out) however, there is moisture that has made its way between the panes of glass, making them appear dirty. I assure you that our windows are not dirty. Ownership is currently looking into replacing the windows. 3) You were not happy with the quality of the food made by hand in our kitchen for Oktoberfest. Our staff worked very hard to come up with and serve an incredible menu for this celebration. We have been receiving rave reviews on the entire day, especially our food. I am sorry you did not find it to your liking. 4) Our musical entertainment was the world famous "Dummkopfs" They have been performing here in Las Vegas, for well over 40 years and continue to entertain with rave reviews. They have been the house band for Hofbräuhaus, here in Las Vegas, providing German and Bavarian musical entertainment. They may have taken some musical liberties; the crowd seemed to enjoy it.
I am very sorry that you did not enjoy our Oktoberfest celebration as much as everyone else who was here. I have been to several Oktoberfests around the United States, and have found ours to be fun, full of great food and drinks, in a great location, with exceptional service. You did not. I apologize.
