There was a long line for check in/check out at 11.45am, but it moved quickly and we were seen within 15 mins. Had booked a South Tower room, but were offered a deluxe room in the North Tower for an extra $20/night and it was ready so we took it, Room 2579 on the 25th floor.
We were in the room within 40 mins of leaving the room at the Encore as we were staying at 5 different hotels in our 2 weeks in Vegas.
Walking into the room at Bally\'s was a bit disappointing after the gorgeous room at the Encore. We know the golden rule about leaving the best hotel for last, but we have been in all the hotels before and knew what we were letting ourselves in for.
I felt that the furnishing were a bit worn ...
for a refurbished room, but the room was really large, even larger than other Vegas rooms. It had a king bed (6ft wide), 2 seater sofa, easy chair, coffee table, 2 desks, another small table. View was of the Westin Casuarina to the right and Flamingo, Mirage, IP, Harrah\'s, Trump, Venetian, Palazzo and Wynn/Encore to the left.Read More
The disappointment was short lived and we soon got used to the room.
Bally\'s is an older hotel, but their rooms are large and it\'s in a great central location, opposite the Bellagio and close to Caesars Palace.
Rooms are not as nice as MGM and the higher end hotels, but the price reflects this. It is better than the Imperial Palace.
It has quite a large casino, a food court with reasonably priced outlets and some good restaurants such as the Steakhouse and Al Dente.
It is also home to Jubilee! which is a traditional Vegas revue show with topless dancers with massive head-dresses. We have seen the show previously and really enjoyed it.
The Stage Door Casino is opposite the hotel on Flamingo where you can pick up beerr, Coke and snacks.
Bally\'s has a monorail station so it is easy to get both south and north on the strip quickly.
The pool area is OK. Just a basic rectangle, but there are plenty sunbeds.
It is a very reasonably priced hotel and we would certainly stay here again.
