The wife and I try to stay on the strip as much as possible. However sometimes if there’s a UFC fight or convention of some sort, there’s just no way we could afford it. This was one of those times where we couldn’t quite go all out like we usually do, so we ventured off the main strip and headed further south.
The South Point Hotel has some of the largest standard rooms I’ve seen in Las Vegas. There's plenty of space if you have kids who don’t mind sharing a bed. My favorite things about South Point were the pool area which was enormous; and the café on the main floor. The pool was enormous! There were only a handful of people there when we stayed since it was a Tuesday. But if you like to sunbathe or swim, you’ll be pleased. The café downstairs was where we ate almost every meal. It was quite an intricate little deli style café. They served sandwiches, burgers and fries, and a lot of great looking desserts. Don’t expect the best meal you’ve ever eaten from there, but they are open late, and it serves its purpose as a place to feed the family on a budget or grab a quick snack.
All in all, The South Point Hotel is really an “Old Las Vegas” style of hotel. There’s not a whole lot for frills. There’s no grandiose theme to admire as with the Bellagio or Caesar’s Palace, it’s very simple. Here’s where you gamble, here’s the bar, here’s some restaurants, here’s the spa. If you’ve ever spent a weekend in one of the super hotels on the Las Vegas strip and gotten lost, you’ll find this place remarkably easy to navigate.
It’s a low budget wonder. Whatever the South Point is charging, rest assured you could probably find the same rate at a hotel on the strip, but you’ll probably end up in a room you don’t want to be in. If you plan on spending most of your time on the strip, you’ll definitely need some wheels. All the hotels have free parking, so pick where you want to sightsee, park the car and drive on back when you’re ready. If you’re renting a car, it might add a few more bucks to you trip, but it’s worth it to not have to walk back after being out late.
