Basically great location. It's like taking a budget airline vs a standard carrier, giving you the basics and nothing more (really). I can see why the reviews differ. Good and bad, depending on which of the following are important to you.
1) Location is perfect and centralized
2) Room is spacious and the beds are big too (for small sized Asians like myself)
3) Free shuttle to Rio (off the strip)
4) Short walk to bus stops (Deuce/SDX)
5) Walgreens 24/7 at the Palazzo nearby
6) McD next doors with free wifi
7) Hair dryer, iron, ironing board, safe and tv provided
1) Poor lighting and cleanliness. You can all it ambience though. And the glasses in the bathroom had residue in and on them
2) See point #7 above? That's pretty much all that was provided. No slippers, no electric water kettle/coffee maker. There were 2 small pcs of soap, one shampoo, one lotion. That's it.
3) Shower head is not removable, and there is no shower cap. Maybe a small thing for some people. But the water flow is strong and good.
4) They seem to want to charge for everything in the room. There was a pack of toothbrush+toothpaste beside the fridge, and it said "for sale". BTW, it wasn't really a fridge. There was a warning on the door that said it was a mini-bar and we're not allowed to place anything inside. And the drinks inside were "booby-trapped" so once you take something out to see, $$$...
5) I can't really say much about the housekeeping. My toilet roll was finishing, but it wasn't replaced nor was an extra roll supplied. FYI, yes I did tip them.
6) Poor sound insulation. We could hear all the conversations in the hall, which were unfortunately not interesting material.
7) Poor air. Everytime we pass the casino to go out to the strip, my eyes sting just from the residual cigarette smoke. Though smoking isn't allowed in the lobby and on some floors, they still smell of smoke. Non-existent air filtering
8) Old and overused bed. The bed was too soft only in the center. And it's so overused that even if I lie on the side, I will roll and sink into the center
1) Go get your water from Walgreens, and bring a water kettle along if you want your own coffee or just some hot drinks. Nothing is provided, though room service will bring you a flask of hot water for more than 8 bucks.
2) Bring your own toiletries. There is close to nothing there. The shampoo and lotion is very little and again, they aren't replaced till you finish them completely.
3) If you don't need housekeeping, save it. There's not much difference and you save on tipping too. Just bring out your own trash. Towels and bedsheets aren't changed unless you explicitly request.
4) If you don't need the LAN connection, don't use the hotel's. It's freakin expensive. Go buy a coffee at McD next doors and enjoy the coffee and the free wifi.
5) Skip the restaurants and eateries at the hotel itself if not necessary. Bad air, long queue, mediocre food. If you're starving, there's a Big Hurt's Snack Shack kiosk right outside the hotel (not the McD exit) which is not bad and much cheaper.
6) For overseas travelers without a local number, note that even local outgoing calls from your room are $$. If you need to arrange airport shuttle pick-up, ask the concierge instead!
