Great TR! I love a nice, relaxing trip, which is what I get when I go solo.

Flame is one of our favourite places to eat in Vegas, we make a point of having dinner there at least once every trip.

I will disagree with one thing about the Gordie Brown show - don't avoid it if you have younger people with you. I took a 23 year old co-worker to see it last summer and she loved his show.

Thanks for taking the time to post! I have stayed at Terribles many times and really loved the property and pool, as you do. It's so nice to be steps from your room, the casino, the pool, and the convenience store. I stayed in the new tower rooms, first floor, the ones with the patios near the pool and they were great. Always very clean, and such friendly employees.

I enjoyed their breakfast buffet and the cafe is aboslutely outstanding! More food than you can eat for such low prices.

Terribles gets dissed alot, but for a low budget porperty, it brings alot of value and can be alot of fun. Some forget you can have a great vacation and not stay at a mega resort. I spend most of my time at the Flamingo or Caesars now, but have a fond place in my heart for Terribles.

Glad you had a great trip!

Enjoyed your trip report. We're planning on stopping in at Ellis Island for the first time when we go to LV in a couple of weeks, based on all the great comments about the it, and the steak special, on this forum.

That was an excellent trip report IMO. When I get to LV in the near future, I plan to stop at the Palms and check it out. I often stop at Terribles and Ellis Island and like their restaurants for good value--also the root beer.
