“Fantastic Holiday to Las Vegas”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

The people at Desert Rose go out of their way to ensure you have a happy stay with them. Everybody is friendly and knowledgeable about their hotel/resort.
The manager's reception with food and beverage is a great way to meet new friends. We met Lizi and David et al at such a reception and we're planning to meet again in December of 2013 for Christmas and New Years.
We had a full kitchen and enjoyed home cooked meals within our unit as well as a few good grills outside on the BBQs.................
The service staff in the dining room provided service and attention above and beyond the call of duty. Kept up with the world news with a complimentary copy of USA Today every day
Thank you for a wonderful holiday at Desert Rose.

Room Tip: Our room was very nice and faced a gorgeously designed court yard. Next time we'll request a ro...

My friends and I have stayed here for three consecutive years while in Vegas for the rugby sevens. Each visit we have loved our stay, the staff, atmosphere , complimentary breakfast.. Makes us feel at home. I would highly reccomend this resort to anybody who is looking for a nice place to call home while in Las Vegas.After a bustling craziness of the Vegas strip, you can just go around a few blocks to this hidden gem to re-charge..

We stayed here because of previous positive Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The hotel was a perfect place for our family of 5 in Vegas for 2 nights - off the strip, non-gaming, 2BR, 2Bathrooms, pullout sofa, very clean, full kitchen and breakfast! Convenient two blocks from the strip behind MGM Grand. We were in room 4217 which even had a narrow view of the strip from one of the bedrooms :-) Negatives were that there was some noise from above rooms and the breakfast was very crowded. But overall we were very satisfied with the value of this hotel.

Recently my partner and I had relocated to Vegas for work. We were placed at the Desert Rose Resort behind the MGM. I just had to give my feedback. It feels like home. The rooms are clean, quiet and cozy. It far enough away from the chaos of the strip but close enough if you want to feel the action. There is a great heated pool and jacuzzi. The staff is considerate and extremely helpful.

Perks: Breakfast served in common area daily, welcome wine and cheese 4 nights a week, wifi access, pool, bbq area, jacuzzi, fitness center apt style large rooms with balcony, televisions with HBO, laundry, parking and full kitchen with all amenites. Efficient and green housekeeping service and extremely friendly staff and conceirge!!

Cons: Water temprature adjustment in shower takes a minute to get acquainted with. But that's all I can think of!! Isn't that great!?!

Don't have kids but can see how it can totally be kid friendly.

P.S. Engineering accidently broke a cable during routine maintenance of a television but was quick to replace without hassle.

Just got back from a 7 night stay at the Desert Rose with my wife and two friends.

This hotel/resort does everything it claims to do. We had a full kitchen including a full size stove with 4 burners and a 'keep warm' area, oven, microwave, full size fridge freezer, sink, kettle, dish washer, food processor and coffee maker. The kitchen also has everything you need such as kitchen towel, full crockery and silverware, glasses (three types), detergent for hand washing and the dishwasher, coffee etc. Heck, the maids even do your dishes if you are too lazy to wash them yourself.

The decor is decidedly brown but this seems common for this type of establishment. The living area is comfy with a 37 inch flat TV, couch, chaise longue, coffee table etc. There is a dining area with a nice table and four chairs and then two bedrooms. One is en-suite with a large bathroom, the second bedroom is slightly smaller and the bathroom is not en-suite (in case someone uses the sofabed in the living area). But the 2nd bathroom had an oversized tub which was a nice feature. Both bedrooms also featured 37 inch flat TV's, nearly new LG models of pretty good quality.

Other facilities include a swimming pool, hot tub, BBQ area, expanded continental breakfast, coffee + fountain drinks in reception, shop in reception area and coin operated laundry - EXTREMELY cheap at $1.25 for a wash and $1 for an hour drying. That will dry a full load even on the setting for colours. They also offer a dry cleaning service.

The rooms are cleaned every day by a team of maids who will even wash your dishes. If there was even a minor fault it was that the lobby coffee was cold at midnight (really, no big deal) and they could do with extending breakfast to 10am on weekdays - presently it finishes at 9am and gets busy towards the end.

Otherwise none of us had any complaints and between us we have stayed at many hotels - some pretty swanky. OK, so swanky this hotel is not...but it is very comfy and has everything you need for a "just off strip" Vegas vacation. Hooters casino (much more civilised than you'd expect) is right next door, and you are a short walk from the MGM Grand.

Free wi-fi worked well though we did have to reconnect our devices every morning. The speed was good enough to upload 50Mb of photos to social networking sites in a couple of minutes. The air conditioning worked really well and is piped to both bedrooms and the living area. There's a nice terrace for warm days where you can sit out - smoking is allowed on the terrace for those who do.

Some reviewers mention thin walls. We didn't find this problem but we could hear people in the room above us apparently stomping around in the mornings.

As I said at the top, the Desert Rose does exactly what it says on the tin, for a fine price.

We stayed here for a large volleyball tournament. It wasn't my first choice (I oringally booked one of the casino/hotels), but when I heard my DD's team was staying here I was persuaded to change my reservation.

It's a timeshare hotel, so we knew what we were getting in to. We own Marriott, this is not in the same league as Marriott timeshares. If you're looking for a little more space, away from all the hustle and bustle of the casino area then this could be a nice option. The rooms have been described. They are sufficient. If anyone looks close enough, you'll find problems, but we had a good three night stay. WiFi worked great. Our bed was very comfortable. The placed seemed very secure, as I had to use my room card to get anywhere (so it seemed) within the complex. It was only a few minute walk to the MGM too (less to Hooter's) if you wanted casino action (or a bite to eat).

The walls were a little thin. Unfortunately we were on the first floor. The noise from up above was real loud, as was outside noise (people walking by our room and talking). If you want to stock up on grocery's, there are several options nearby (including a Vons, Albertson's and a couple Super Walmarts).

Would I stay here again? Probably not. Was it horrible? No. It was a nice option away from it all. That's how I'd categorize this place. I drove by some of the other non-gaming hotels. I'd pick this over those any day.
