So MGM will be the 1st strip property to reintroduce parking fees at their properties in Vegas. Others soon to follow but at least us Nevada residents can still park for free, just screwing the visitors every which way they can.

Even state parks charge for parking these days. I think it's wrong, but it's the cost for saying and doing nothing.

State and Natl parks usually have an entrance fee, not to park. Imagine if the casinos start charging people to enter their property? Really not far fetched considering someone came up with the idea of ripping guests with the resort fees.

In 1981 I paid to get into the casino in Monte Carlo. I did play BJ there. Whatever the minimum was. Probably in Francs.

You caught me. I'm not under oath, so I thought maybe I would make something up. When I'm not lying about being charged to park, or at a casino, I work as a crisis actor and I just needed practice. If you pay to park at MGM, the gang of drug dealers there give you your money back when you buy heroin or cocaine from them.

That's a very weird response.

For my first time back this summer, we were going to stay at Sam's Town but they wanted a $58 dollar a night resort fee. $58? Really? Does Boyd realize it's Sam's Town and not the Bellagio?

Well, at least the parking is still free there, but I'll be staying at the Four Queens.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

It's probably $58 for the 2 day stay, not per day. Their resort fee is $23/day (plus tax).

The resort fee isn't really for paying for a resort anyway (Golden Gate isn't a resort lol). It's just a way to obscure the true nightly rate so consumers can't price shop accurately. The state realized this early and tax it as room rate.

I thought they both waived the parking fee if you have a high enough status, or if you get their credit card. And I believe the credit cards have no annual fee.

I believe there are additional perks as well.
