This thread is to be used to discuss hotel accommodations at Suncoast.

I am thinking of staying at the Suncost for a week on business. (It is the best rate I can find and happens to be really close to the office I'll be visiting for 5 days strait.)

Whats the good/bad? The hotel website says "High Speed Internet Available". Does that mean a fee is involved?

Thanks!

My advice would be to check theTripadvisor Site.

If the Suncoast charges a resort fee, the internet may be included in this fee, as may local phone calls. Best Bet is to check with the hotel before you go.

High speed internet is probably NOT included in the resort fee. It almost never (99% of the time) is.

Don't know the Suncoast hotel but it has pretty easy in/out access and is convenient to Summerlin Parkway.

A fee is charged for Internet, except for the coffee (Seattles Best?) area, though I couldn't get a connection there.
The rooms are nice. Golf courses are adjacent and nearby. The cocktail waitresses, for the most part are attractive. It is a fully self contained complex, with no need to leave the premises. They do provide shuttle buses to the strip and downtown. Also, there was free shuttle service from the airport.
Definately, there are worse places than the Suncoast!

Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware of the shuttle...that will come in handy.

Good shopping across the street. Suncoast has a movie theater in the casino which has recent hits but is usually the best place for art films. TGIF runs cheap food until about 1PM. No food available in the middle of the night. There is $5 minimum in craps all the time, and sometimes its $3. The oyster bar is upper side of mediocre.

Rampart Casino next door has an Irish Pub, but there is Gordon Biersch brew pub across the street. A lot of fine dining in the area since it is pretty upscale. Try Nora's for good wine.

I never did post how my five day stay went back in February...so here it goes:

Wireless...it'll cost ya: The internet is definitely not free. It was 10-12 bucks if I remember right. Seems to be standard fare in LV....

Clean Room With a View of The Lights: The room was very clean and spacious with a large flat screen TV and all the other usual amenities. I could find nothing to complain about. I was very comfortable the entire week and really enjoyed my stay. However, I would advise people to avoid the lower level floors. Flood lights cover the building and are very bright on the lower floors. (At night, my view consisted of a floodlight. The blackout curtains were great though.)

Vegas Deals: We found a good 1.99 early bird breakfast deal at the deli each morning. However, if you happened to want anything else other than the special, your breakfast went from 2$ to 8 or 9$ real quick. The 2$ was a great deal...the 9$ was not. (The food was ok...but if all you want is coffee, defiantly go to the Seattle's Best stand near the registration desk.)

Chain Restaurants Generally Suck...Even In Vegas: We ate at the TGI Fridays once. The service was so bad it was comical. 1/4 of the restaurant was full, after waiting 15 minutes to order it took us about 45 minutes to get our food, and when I informed the waiter that he had forgotten my salad (I only mentioned it 1/2 way through eating my dinner) he actually acted like I was being rude for asking about it. Between that and watching the wait staff argue with one another while leaving table after table un-bussed, we could do nothing but laugh...

Casino: The casino was nice. Tons of decent VP as long as you know how to play something other than JOB. I played $.25 DDB and won 400$ in one night while drinking some above average beer at the bar. (They had Sierra Nevada Anniversary Ale on tap. YUM!) This is definitely a locals casino...and if I lived in Las Vegas, I would probably play there too. Over the five nights I played approximately 4 hours of VP. 3.5 at the 25 cent level and 1/2 an hour playing dollars. In the end, I now get offers for 40$ rooms Sun-Thurs and 10$ in food each day. I think that is a pretty decent deal considering I only played low stakes VP for a few hours over five days. (I earned 2513 points during my stay.)

Shuttle: I took the shuttle form the strip back to the hotel on Sunday. It arrived at the Trop on time and after a quick stop at the airport, we were on our way to the property which was a 30 minute ride. I think this is a great perk considering just getting to the strip from the airport will cost you at least 6$ on a regular shuttle.

I live 5 minutes from the Suncoast. When they still had good video poker I played there a LOT. Even without that, for a recreational gambler it is a fun place and a good value. The cocktail waitresses are among the best in Vegas. Besides all the casino games, they have a big movie theatre, bingo, and a huge bowling alley. There is a nice golf course across the street (Angel Park). I know a guy who lived there for about six months. Once a month they made him leave for a day.
