I had never stayed at the S.P. , but was familiar with it as on a prior trip stayed at the timeshare resort next door – Grandview. I knew it was virtually smoke free, clean and bright, but had never seen the rooms. My niece was going to attend volleyball camp at ULV and sister in law was staying nearby at the HRC. I decided to join her for the week. Since I had a car, driving was no longer an issue and we decided to give the S.P a try.
The hotel is large, nice pool area with snack bar and friendly wait staff. The pool is a unique shape and adds to the ambiance. The casino has a large bingo room, bowling alley and 16 theater movie complex upstairs. Downstairs there is a large casino, sports book, lounge and multiple restaurants. The S.P. is very clean, bright and the smell of smoke is very light compared to the other large casinos. I can’t stand the stench of fresh or old cigarettes. That was a plus in itself. When you add the low price, wow great value too. They have all the amenities of the strip hotels, convenience / gift store, salon and spa as well as a horse arena. The place is large, our room was on the 20th floor.
As mentioned there are numerous dining options - deli, coffee pastry place, oyster bar (always busy), Steak N Shake, Mexican, Steakhouse, Italian, Prime Rib, Café, buffet and a top 4 diamond restaurant Michaels. We ate at the Coronado Café, Baja Mexican, Buffet once and Michaels. Michaels was a dining experience, service was impeccable and food absolutely wonderful. This is definitely a place to impress or conduct business. We popped in wearing jeans and casual tops and we were openly welcomed. So do not feel you are underdressed. This is the finest restaurant I have ever had the pleasure of dining. Much nicer experience then a Ruth Chris or Ocean Prime, which are both great. At the end of our meal they presented us a plate full of chocolate dipped fruit, it was absolutely wonderful. So save money at eat at the less expensive places and splurge for one meal at Michaels. We figured what we saved staying at the S.P. allowed us to go to Celine Dion, Concert at the HRC – Joint and Blueman, as well as dining at Michaels.
As for the rooms, as others have commented on the rooms are huge with plenty of room, tastefully decorated, great lighting options and a very large LED flat screen TV. The bathroom is nicely equipped with bath/shower and toilet in its own room and a separate very large vanity area. The closet is large with an elevated safe; that makes it much easier to access. We never heard any noise from the hallway or neighbors. Housekeeping was wonderful and very honest. We did leave a tip for the week on day 2; wanted to be sure I did not spend it in the machines. As luck would have it, after a 7 day stay I ended up leaving an expensive item behind. It was after 2 weeks of not locating the item at home that, I called S.P. just to be satisfy my own curiosity; as I always check the room and was positive I hadn’t left it. To my surprise, when I provided my room number & departure date, I was told there were item(s) turned in by housekeeping. When the package arrived I was shocked to find that not only had I left the one item, but also a brand new camera that never found its way out of the box. (never missed that one). It was then that I recalled the plan was to check out then go back to the room to pick up 1 remaining bag. I of course had been distracted by my favorite slot machine and left without my items. SP housekeeping not only provided us with excellent service during our stay, they were very honest and turned in the left behind items which were approx. $400.
We found the location convenient with easy access to the Hwy and were able to drive to ULV daily and the other casinos. However, after trying our luck at multiple casinos new and vantage, we agreed we played the longest with our money at the S.P. Neither were big winners, but we didn’t expect to be. We just wanted to have some fun, visit and enjoy ourselves and that is exactly what happened. Based on our 1 week experience, I would definitely recommend S.P. and plan to return on my next trip.
