Anyways, if you're not married to the idea of downtown, the Wizard thinks South Point is currently the best deal in town in terms of gaming and amenities.



I visited SP last time I was in Vegas, and dropped a couple K there in an afternoon and was hoping to get some free room offers for future trips. I've gotten absolutely nothing from them. Very surprised.

There's been a few recommendations on my thread for the Downtown Grand. I've checked it out a few times on YouTube and it always seems deserted. Is that just a few videos or is the place really that empty? Any thoughts from people who have been there would also be appreciated. Thanks.



I just stayed at the Downtown Grand and can confirm it seems much cleaner than other downtown spots. The casino floor was surprisingly quiet. Machines are spread out and it feels more wide open than other joints. Maybe this gives the feel of being dead. It felt dead, which I didnít particularly mind, but understand some might. I liked coming back to the quiet and cleanliness.

My room was loud at night ó lots of noise from the Fremont stages, although that could be the case for any place. Iím not sure; it could be where I was placed. My only real complaint is that I never was able to access WiFi. I couldnít even access a log in page. It was less painful to just use a personal hotspot from my phone. They do have a free shuttle to the strip that runs frequently.

Well well well. They must have heard us... because I got a mailer today for the fourth quarter. These benefits are good for each month of the quarter.

1. 2 free room nights with an upgrade to a newly remodeled room each month
2. $20 in slot credit (I didn't gamble that much, so not surprised that it's low) each month
3. $20 in resort credits each month
4. 2 free "Nitelife" showroom entries each month (worth approximately $0 for me)
5. 25% off Spa and Salon services
6. Free entry to Fitness Center
7. Free Funbook (whatever that is)

That's very surprising My intro to SP was when I stayed at the time share next door. Did 300 points for the free buffet promo and got offers , some I couldn't refuse.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

I concur with the above for DG, I have stayed there a couple of times and gambled there probably 10+ times. Always a dead floor, I can't believe they are expanding as when I am there, it is always slow.

You just have to decide what you want: A loud, energy filled floor with dancing dealers & a stickman you can't hear or a quiet place to come back to when the evening is done and you have had enough?

The elevators are a bit strange, but you get used to them.

I think they pulled furniture out of storage and dusted it off. Actually cleaned the rooms(for now) and maybe some paint touchups. They're trying to pass it off as a retro experience. Heard that it is awful. Have not personally experienced or even seen though. This is 3rd party info.
