Fortunately, I wasn't there to experience this first-hand. But Mrs Q was, having taken a Labor Day weekend trip out to LV with her sister. ( I went zip-lining back home instead ).

Anyway, she got in line at 3:10 pm on Saturday and got checked-in at 5:10 pm.

UNBELIEVABLY inefficient ! How could Westgate be so understaffed/underprepared ?

I would think for a property out of the way and off strip, they would do everything they could to give their guests a nice experience so there is a chance they would come back again.

The only good thing is that Westgate comp'd the daily resort fee and gave her and her sister a buffet for their trouble.

Yeouch! It's not like they're a little hole in the wall. I wonder what the average wait was at comparably sized Strip properties?

It can really vary at CET properties based on your tier level, gold or non-card could wait 2 hours.

I waited about 90 minutes at Imperial Palace a few years ago. Three days later I moved to Golden Nugget where it was about 5 minutes.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

Yeah the old IP had some horrible lines. Fortunately I've never been stuck in one. I haven't seen it get that bad at the Linq yet. Flamingo always seems bad at CET.

Yeah we were there in July. 4 Agents checking in 150+ in the regular line. I was lucky enough to be a Diamond Member so I walked into the Diamond check in, 8 agents checking in about a dozen of us with fruit infused water for your pleasure.

When I go to Vegas, I am typically mindful of how many rooms there are in these hotels, and to schedule my flights to where I will not be arriving to the hotel at peak check-in times, particularly on a three day weekend like Labor Day.

I bypass the normal check in line at MGM as I stay on a comp.

One would think all casinos would have some form of express check in for folks who are comped, but I can't say for sure.

Yep. That's how CET says F... Y... to the rest of us.

The line we saw at Bellagio a few times was just as bad.
