I hands down prefer the M over RR. The minuses at the M to me are as follows, The buffet, contrary to what others have said, the buffet sucks to me. 3 hour wait to get average food at best. The Sports book. rude ticket writers, like I am beneath them rude. Also the room doors are very heavy so you hear when anyone around you comes in and out of the room.

With all of that said, I still prefer the M over the RR. One reason is a pit boss, maybe pit manager named Lou. I was treated like a VIP in the pit with a nice comp to the steakhouse, which BTW is excellent. The italian resturaunt is very good also, I recommend the chicken parm. Hash a gogo , not so hot. Beds are very nice, room is very nice, tables are nice and friendly.

Even with my critiques, I really like the M resort and spa.

Thanks guys! Seems pretty split but wife likes vp, so rr may win out.



You know RR has some 100%+ percent VP machines. We play the Dueces Wild.

I hit 4 dueces 3 times one afternoon at the sister Green Valley Rance property
last month.

For fine dining, I would say the M. For casual, the Red Rock. For stuff to do besides gambling, definitely the Red Rock. I live very close to the Red Rock, and go there a lot, out of convenience, mainly for movies and food. However, I've had some negative experiences there. If I lived equally far from both, and the games were exactly the same, I think I would probably play at the M. Also, the Red Rock has the highest resort fees in Vegas.

You must have missed the cocktail waitress trivia debacle of 2011.

I'm primarily angry over how I was treated regarding some $1,000 chips I was trying to cash. They questioned, in a rude way, if I was the legitimate owner, and then refused to cash them. I easily passed them off in the sports book after the cage refused me.

How would you rate the GVR compared to these two properties? More sophisticated? Older crowd? Better gambling experience (not too crowded)?
