Residence Inn Las Vegas South
Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
Final day in Vegas today :( We decided we needed a well earned rest and so we started by relaxing by the pool and having a quick dip. It was lush. Good music, drinks and lots of sunshine. Then we decided to explore the last hotel we hadn't seen, Paris in Vegas. It has beautiful chandeliers and ornate furniture as well as a massive Eiffel Tower! We decided to go up and check out the view from the top. Dad even got in free because it was his birthday. It was lovely looking down ...
... and experienced already!
Very proud of myself, I managed to transfer the pics off my camera and downloaded them onto the computer.
What I've got here doesn't really do the place justice but gives those who haven't been here a snippet of what's here!
Moving on tomorrow to another place to break the journey en rote to the Grand Canyon! Very exciting
... and a half yard of fabric this time round. Our last stop was Quiltique in Henderson where we went last year.....they have a huge range of fresh modern fabrics which are just beautiful. With bags full and wallets empty we headed back to the hotel for a rest before spending our last night in Vegas sightseeing. Ten of us walked to the Venetian Hotel for a look.....was well worth the walk....was just amazing. Looked like we ...
... to grab a cab in the end which was a good decision as the highways have express lanes which allowed us to fly past all the traffic.
We were still running late and when we arrived at the airport much to our displeasure there was a huge line to check our bags in. There was no way to skip the line so we just had to wait it out. Luckily we saw that our flight was delayed by 20 minutes so we made it through all the security checks in time.
... and an awesome view of Fremont Street. If you ever find yourself in need do some pics of yourself and Dr. Spock, Assless Chaps KISS, Zack Galafanakis with the little baby, or plenty of Elvii, then Fremont is the place to be. It's like Times Square in a tunnel.
We'll wrap this up when we get into our new home parking space.
Thanks for all of you who have been following us on our journey across the country.

Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Inn Las Vegas South
Staying at the property as I write this review, half way thorugh my stay of 10 night, traveling with a group of five, all staying in separate rooms. When traveling we used to stay at the big casino's but have tired of their size and lack of "personality". Found non-casino hotels to be much more accomodating. Still visit the casino's but nice to relax and unwind without all of the bells & whistles.
Nice little resort
We were greeted by such a pleasant lady! We were able to get a non - smoking room and it was great! We had the two bedroom suite and my parents had the studio room.
It was the 4th of July weekend and they were short staffed but this was not a problem.
It was close to the strip and they had a shuttle but it needs to run longer.
This is great for families and people who don't need to be on the strip.
You will rest well in this nice hotel.
We are a family of 5 from South Australia travelling in late April 2006. We chose to stay off the strip mainly because my mother-in-law is not fond of crowds and has never travelled before. I looked at reviews and was put off by a lot because of the wait in checking in or out as well as not getting the room you asked for or perhaps a smoking room. Anyway we had our own vehicle and this place is about a mile from the south end of the strip. We had 3 nights here. The bonus with this place was the 2 bedroom suite with kitchen, 3 TVs, laundry on our floor, free hot breakfast, free internet in the breakfast room, pool and spa, manager's welcome on weekday evenings which meant we could have hot dogs, nachos or salad with a drink and that saved us a lot on meals! I would definitely recommend this place to families. I would also stay here again.
We stayed for 2 nights and you name it and it went wrong. Tried to check in late on Dec. 23rd and had to wait more than 30mins. for a Holiday Inn express employee to come over and check me in. The employee had no idea how to take my credit card and insisted that I leave it in the card the room was held with. After about 15mins the employee figured out that I wasnt about to use the card the room was held with and called someone to figure out how to use a credit card.
I stayed here 02/06. I chose this place because I know that it is fairly new. The place is nice. No casino but also no smoke either. I checked in at 9 A.M. and they actually had our rooms ready. I think it was a slower time of the year for Vegas. The included breakfast is better than average. All the rooms are studios with a kitchen which is nice if you want to buy water and snacks.
Well worth checking out
family of five stayed here for 3 days beginning 4th july. thought it was really good value less than $130 per night. the room was spacious and very clea, kitchenette good and staff most helpful. only took breakfast one morning and it was fine and didn't do the socials so cant comment. shuttle bus to the strip ran every half hour but we had a car and just drove over to the strip and parked in one of the casinos and took the trolley bus. don't know if i would rush back to las vegas but if i did go back would definitely stay here again.
We stayed for 3 nights in July. The weather was 125 during the day and 117 at night. The room stayed nice and cool though. A few people used the pool area but it was too hot to even do that. It looked like a nice small pool with a waterfall and BBQ area right outside the gate. The hotel also has an outdoor basketball/tennis court which looks new. The rooms were very nice with a full kitchen. They also have free internet service. The hotel is located next door to a Courtyard & Fairfield Inn. We used the happy hour service at the Courtyard every night. The front desk was very helpful. The computer in the public area was being used so the desk clerk went to his computer to issue our boarding passes for our flight home. The shuttle service to the airport was very important and right on time. We also used the shuttle to the Mandalay Bay and it was right on time also. The location is right next to the freeway and was a little noisy at night. I would ask for a room in the other building. The major problem we had was with the morning breakfast. They do not have enough help to keep the food replenished. It was almost a joke. The food was very good and the assortment was great. BUT getting any of it was a major chore. When they finally would come out with food it was a major mob fight to get any before it was all gone again. People were getting very frustrated and the help was very uncaring. I would stay there again but not count on getting breakfast.
Newer hotel worth the money...breakfasts were okay..our only complaint was the slow shuttle service to the strip..the room was nice and very clean..we would definitely stay here again.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel Sept. 18, 2004. It was our last night in Las Vegas and when I booked this room on line, I was relieved because I wasn't finding any vacancies for that Saturday night (there was a boxing match in town, I knew nothing about). This hotel has only been open since April 2004, and it's not on any of the Las Vegas maps yet. It's a well kept secret! We were so impressed with our room. It was a queen suite. A seperate bedroom with a t.v., and a room with a sofa, chair, coffee table, large desk, t.v., kitchenette, with table, 2 chairs, microwave, cooktop, fridge, coffee maker, silverware, utensils, etc. Somebody could truly live there. It was like a small efficiency apartment! And the bed and pillows were so comfortable! Felt like feather pillows, though I'm sure they weren't. Of course, everything there is still relatively new, so it's all nice. Had a nice pool area, with gas grills, so you could even cook out if you wanted too. They also had a really nice complimentary breakfast. Usually, those aren't too good. But this one was great. They had pastries, cereal, yogurt, waffles, toast, bagels, scrambled eggs, and sausage, and juice, milk, tea, coffee. It was very good. The desk clerks were great. Very helpful, especially when we had some trouble with our reservation we booked on line. We would most definitely stay there again. There is no casino on this property, but gambling wasn't the purpose of our trip. I guess if there was any downside to this hotel, it would be that the air conditioner units are a bit noisy, and it's very close to the airport, so, you have that noise as well, but it didn't bother us at all. I highly recommend this hotel. Clean, comfortable, reasonably priced, and super nice, helpful clerks. What more could you ask for?
Great room-terrible breakfasts and socials!
We stayed here mid June and had a lovely time in Vegas. We had a 2 bed suite and everything was brand new. Front desk staff were helpful. However, the 'free' breakfast and 'social' foods are a joke. The queues were massive with very little left even first thing in a morning or early evening and there were not enough
tables to seat people(total 10). If you want quiet off the strip, this is for you but i would advise against if you do not have a car. The hotel operate a shuttle hourly to the Bellagio and Mandalay Bay. However, this runs only until 11pm which is not great for '24 hour' Las Vegas and although the hotel looks close to the strip, you have to walk over the freeway to get there. Hence, if you do not use the shuttle, you will need to get a cab.
