Great option off Strip

Posted 30-Mar-2015
The Rio has painted itself out to be both a family hotel (suites are handy when you're travelling 5 deep) as well as a Bachelorette's party destination (Male revue show on site, and bartenders ok w pouring liquor straight down the brides to be's throats). Interesting clientele comes with these two opposing dynamics. None the less the rooms are large, comfortable and the dining options, esp the seafood buffet, are Excellent!

Getting to be one of the older hotels in the area.

Definitely run down however priced accordingly. Would recommend the extra money for the strip as you spend taxi fare getting to and from anyway...

Pros: big rooms, 2 sinks
Location: Nothing to do nearby
Lineups at starbucks were long, prices high. There was no where to grab a quick coffee to go. i knew that the prices of the coffee in the room was expensive, so brought my own - but it was filter packs, not Keurig. Meeting rooms were very far from hotel rooms. The hotel is dated. Bathroom fixtures are new, but not well conncected. Shower curtain was disgusting. Rooms are spacisous, with 2 sinks. Check inlines were dreadfully long - about an hour. It was nice to have a shuttle, but if you did not take it to the strip, you could not find it to come back.

The mattresses were lumpy with springs popping out in certain areas. The shower/bathtub did not drain as the shower was running so by the end of a 5 minute shower I had water half way up my calfs.

Not a good value

Posted 28-Mar-2015
Cons: Don't use the fact that you've got a captive group in an isolated location to stick it to your guests with such high prices.
Location: Total isolation. You needed to take a shuttle to the strip.
The rate seemed reasonable so we booked. Upon arrival we were told the room we booked was not available and the front desk clerk was unsympathetic to the fact we "reserved" it. She told us, in a less than pleasant tone, that our bed configuration was a "request," not guaranteed, and that was the end of the discussion. The entrance area of the room smelled like an unflushed toilet, and the shower provided slightly more than warm water. Housekeeping was marginal and coffee for the coffee machine was not in the room for the first morning. Everything is so over priced it mitigated any value we thought we were receiving for the room. Resort fees, a $5.00+ ATM charge (to get money to simply give back to them for the gambling, which admittedly is our choice) and ridiculously expensive food and drink. Went to get a 6-pack of Corona from the gift shop to take up to the room and it was $32.00! We declined. The casino staff made us feel as welcome as a herpes flare-up and the staff at the various restaurants and bars weren't much better. Don't do the seafood buffet! It's a complete rip-off. All in all, there have got to be much better values and overall experiences to be found at the hotels on the strip. I'm sorry we didn't do a better job of researching prior to booking the Rio.

Close to the strip, great spa to relax in

Posted 28-Mar-2015
Pros: The proximity to the strip, the helpfulness of the staff, the great coffee facilities in the room, the great and varied restaurants located within.
Cons: A few minor things such as the curtain track in the room not being attached to a corner of the room.
Location: I liked that you could walk to the strip or catch the free shuttle, that taxis were easily picked up from the front
Friendly efficient service, great views from the hotel and great gym and spa facilities.

Rio Hotel Las Vegas

Posted 27-Mar-2015
Pros: The restaurants located in the hotels were excellent! Great food, decent prices, great variety. The pool area was quite nice too.
Cons: There are a lot of improvements that could be made. Too many to list.
Location: Located right on flamingo and i15. A stones throw from Vegas blvd. There's lots of trouble that can find you. Can't talk about what happened in Vegas.
Classic Vegas strip hotel/casino experience. If you choose valet parking, you get front door service. If you choose self parking, you get back door service. If you are a full price payer, you get top notch accommodations. If you are a frugal Expedia shopper, you get the worst room on the list. We came in the back door, walked to hotel registration which is on other side of the casino. We got our keycards, and had to walk all the way back to the back door as this was where elevators to our tower were located. I guess it's not possible to have a guest registration desk at two locations in a hotel. Asked for a non smoking room, and didn't get one. It was like they pumped the casino air directly into the air circulation for the masquerade tower. It was eyes burning, cough inducing, nasty stank. The in room safe was locked, asked the hotel services to send up someone to open it for our use, they never did. The room was well appointed, bed was comfortable, bathroom in decent shape, but did not have a ventilation fan. I woulda had that thing running 24/7 to help with the smoke smell. Unfortunately, the Rio is part of the Caesars hotel group, which is bankrupt. This hotel is hurting, big time. Most of their promenade shops are boarded up, closed, or empty. The casino has nothing in the way of free entertainment or sideshows or displays. There were a lot of podiums that just sat empty. The slots were the tightest I've ever seen, and we heard similar stories from other people.

Pros: I guess I will say the food,night life, game is more relaxed and the free shuttles to and from the strip...

Location: The Palms, Pole Position Raceway we went like 5 times this week with our group in for trade show great time. Shelby Auto Museum also a great stop
This is about my 15 or 18 stay at the Rio ... I thank that says a lot..!

The check-in and out service is just terrible, is the only bad thing about the hotel
