nix besonderes, ca 15 Jahre alt, keine spezielle Aussicht. Gebuchte Suite war geräumig aber nix besonderes. Bett bequem. Vorteil: Von Rental Car Center leicht zu erreichen. Nachteil: Nicht am Strip (ca. 5 Meilen); obwohl nachgefragt bei Check-in, ob Aussicht vorhanden und bejaht, sahen wir hauptsächlich das Parkhaus (8. Stock).

Huge hotel, cheap food in the casino. Couldn't fault it. Great pool area. Far from strip.

Historical Traveler Reviews South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa Las Vegas
Fabulous place - a winner A++++++++
We had the pleasure of staying at this brand new hotel on Jan. 13, 2006. First of all, we arrived at noon and they let us check in early. Asked for a room near the elevator and got it. Asked for a late checkout and got it. Every single employee we came into contact with in the 25 hours we were there was very nice, helpful and seemed happy to help us. Our standard room was awesome to say the least. 42" plasma tv on the wall. Beautiful color scheme and very roomy. The bathroom was gorgeous and the soaps and shampoos were top notch. The buffet was good. The location was south of the airport so right now it is alone with loads of contruction going on in the area. It would take approximately 10-15 minutes to get to the main section of the strip by car. Overall we were very impressed by the Southcoast and its employees.
Don't go yet
I stayed January 4-6. The hotel had just opened and all of the problems one would expect with a new hotel plus some are evident.
The rooms was excellent. Very roomy, nice LCD TV, comfortable bed. However, I had a huge complaint. They are still working on building the pool and fitness center and they are working through the night. I had to put up with the beep-beeping of construction vehicles throughout the night.
The staff tried to be helpful but for the most part, they were not very well informed. Wait staff generally did not know which beers were available.
Though the hotel is located on the strip, it is very far away from everything else. You will not be able to walk to anything else.
We travel to Las Vegas several times a year. We stayed at South Coast a week after it opened. The rooms were nice and new. My husband and teenage son were in awe of the 42" Plasma TV in our room. Walls were a little thin. Doors did not shut by themselves, we had to make sure we closed it tight before we left. The rooms are huge and our rate was great.
The food was horrible. We ate at the Cafe, the buffet and the Mexican restaurant. The Mexican restaurant was the best of the three, but still not up to par. Service was slow, but I just figured that was due to the fact that it was a new hotel.
I would not recommend this hotel. Traffic getting to it will is horrible. It will be much better after they widen the road. I was very disappointed. There are other nicer places to stay in the area.
Nice huge room with big bathroom. Get a room with odd numbers to see the east side. The closest parking spot is out in the front of the hotel. You need a car if you stay here since taxi wait can be long.
Great rooms, good food, excellent customer service, ghosts?
Vegas' new South Coast Hotel Casino, Jan 4-6, 2006
We stayed at the new South Coast Hotel in Las Vegas on the far south end of the Las Vegas Strip. As locals, we stay several days in each of the different hotels in Vegas throughout the year so we can make recommendations to friends and visitors, and to enjoy a close to home vacation with gaming and slots that we enjoy. Our stay was January 5-6, 2006, and the price was only $59.00 a night despite the convention being in town. We stayed in a king bed room, and we have to say the king bed rooms are very large, the decor is fabulous, each room has a 42" plasma television, couch, coffee table, table and chairs, black out curtains that actually work and stay shut, dresser, large vanity sink room with another separate room for the toilet and bath, wireless internet access, MP3 player plug in beside the bed, desk and chair, and even with all that the room was very open and spacey. The linens on the bed were crisp and luxurious, the mattress was very comfortable and the pillows were big but soft enough to scrunch. The vanity offered coffee and tea, a small individal cup pot and cups.
In addition to the room being very nice, the help through out the hotel were extremely happy, polite, helpful and very gracious. The hotel employees actually amde the stay more delightful than it already was. Also, the food at the cafe was good, and the Oyster Bar had excellent shrimp scampy, clam chowder, and crab cakes. We didn't get a chance to try the buffet because the line was always long when we wanted to eat.
They also have a huge bowling alley, and we bowled three times while we were there. Plus they have in-house movie theaters as well as in-room movies that are still at the theaters. We saw King Kong at the theater and the sound, seating, everything was top of the line.
The only negative comments we could make would be the lack of nickel slots and our favorite slot machines, and it is located at the very end of the strip with no monorail or tram access - but it's only a short drive to the Mandalay Bay where both can be accessed. It seemed like the casino took left over slot machines, or out dated machines from their other casinos to fill the floor. Most of the slots were penny slots set for one or two cent options. There were no Millionisers or regular bonus slot nickel machines.
I'd highly recommend staying at this casino. It was roomy, luxurious, and the employees were exceptionally friendly, happy and polite.
Now, on a more personal note - something weird happened while we there. And I have to caution you, I just don't believe in the supernatural or weird stuff, so I'm just going to state the facts. The first night in our room, #1207, I felt like someone tapped me hard twice on the back, but when I turned around no one was there. A little later, I felt the same thing again, the same heavy tap, like someone tapping me twice to get my attention, but this time on my shoulder. No I wa snot drinking, really sleepy or anything. I was wide awake just sitting on the bed. I told my husband about it but we just laughed and brushed it off. The second day, it happened a third time. I was standing in front of the dresser putting things away, and felt two very distinct taps in the middle of my back. I thought my husband was teasing me and turned around to tell him it wasn't funny, then saw he was on the other side of the room. It wasn't scary or anything, just weird. Then my husband walked over where I was and the spot in front of the dresser, where I had been touched, was icy cold. You could feel a distinct area of cold, and neither the ac or heater were on in the room. It was just a weird happening, but I thought I'd mention it and see if anyone else who stays in that room (#1207) experiences the same thing.
It was OK but wouldn't stay here again unless it's free
Excited about a new hotel but dissapointed once we got there. Sheets are rough-if you are used to soft, egyptian cotton, you'll hate their rough hotel sheets. The pillows are huge and uncomfortable. Walls are VERY thin-you can hear everything going on around you...YES, everything! Even the AC/Heater is loud. They give you a 2 for 1 coupon for the buffet at check in but don't even waste your time or money...food is VERY dry and over-cooked. Not a very good selection and the desserts are even worse. They didn't even have real ice cream...only non-fat yogurt. Plasma tv's are nice. Slot machines are VERY tight. I didn't see anyone winning anything. They are charging full price right now but many of the amenities aren't even open yet. It's far from the strip (8 miles from Barbary Coast to be exact) so don't think about walking. I usually stay at a strip hotel and only gave this one a chance because of a last minute booking for New Years Eve. I wouldn't stay here again.
A brand new, beautiful desert gem!!
I'm impressed! We loved and enjoyed our stay at the South Coast!! The hotel lies far south and away from the main strip and it's close to the Outlet Center (formerly Belz). We stayed for 2 wonderful nights starting Christmas day and I didn't have any problem getting a room at all thru the toll-free number. Clean, spacious rooms, great plasma TVs, nicely decorated bathrooms, great linen sheets and the hotel has a wonderful steakhouse restaurant and buffet. Upon check-in, we found the staff to be very helpful and accommodating! We didn't see the pool for we were told it was completely done yet but we look forward to it the next time we check in. South Coast, you've done a great job! Thank you!
Opened too early
I uderstand the problems that come with opening a new hotel. BUT this one opened way too early.
# 1 First and worst, my husband, my 2 friends and I all got food poisoning from the Oyster Bar. We all had the jumbo shrimp and we all got violently sick (as I write this I am on antibiotics for it). We reported it to the hotel, but they didn't seem to care.
#2 Maybe they should wash the sheets before putting them on the beds... very scratchy and uncomfortable. Even my son who could sleep anywhere complained.
#3 NO HOT WATER in our shower!!! I mean come on!
# 4 No amenities in our room such as shampoo, soap, COFFEE!!!! We had to ask the house keeping staff.
#5 The keys to our room didn't work and we had to sit outside for 30 minutes waiting for a bell man to come and let us in. The people next to us had been waiting all day. A computer glitch. Nice.
#6 As if scratchy sheets were not enough, the air conditioning units in the rooms sounded like frieght trains when they turned on.
I have stayed in $30 a night hotels in Europe (where I expected to be uncomfortable) and got more sleep and left healthy.
I wouldn't stay here again if they gave me a lifetime of free stays. I have worked in the restaurant and hotel business for years and it's obvious that they were in a rush to be open for New Years. At the cost of unhappy and sick guests, that my friends is never worth it!
Oh they have great TV's... and thats about all we liked, except the movies were $10.99... it's cheaper in my movie theatre here in LA!
Guess it was ok
We just got back last night from the South Coast. I agree with the previous review. Nice big rooms, clean not so smoky YET!!! The bathrooms are huge and the beds are nice. Nice big t.v. as well. There really is no theme like stated above. The serivce was ok. It took forever to get coffee in the a.m. and drinks at lunch.. The buffet lines are long as well. We were surprised at how crowded it was-- the place was packed. One had to wait for slot machines -- that is how crowded they were. We took our kids, ages 11 and 15 . They had fun the in arcade but seem to like the Orleans hotel better. This hotel is far, far away from anything-- the shuttle is a long ride-- almost an hour in traffic.. We waited 45 minutes for a taxi to the airport.. The valet guy said that none of the taxi drivers want to come that far south-- not worth it for them.. The hotel has some issues to work out-- it was ok but will probably never stay there again. Need to be closer and have better service. Our taxi driver said the Orleans and a few others like the JW Marriott are the best places to stay. Take alot of money for a taxi ride( if you can catch one) and take a ton of money for the slot machines, as we saw no one win a dime there!! We did play at Barbary coast and won over 75.00 dollars in a penny machine for a few minutes of play.. that was fun.. Threw away a ton at South Coast-- Good luck!! and have fun!!
Nice, New, & Very South
South Coast Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada. We just returned from a two night stay, just after the opening night. Very hospitable staff, bright and new Casino. This Casino is "unthemed," which in itself if somewhat of a pleasure. The design and styling are very much in line with the "Coast casinos" image. As a matter of fact, it's very similar to the Sun Coast Casino. The bathrooms have a brown granite sink tops, commode and tub/shower combination are secluded behind a privacy door within the bathroom. Rooms are big and very nicely appointed. Upscale bedlinens, huge flat screen tv. Nice buffet, and great Italian Restaurant. The restaurants follow the usual cookie cutter Coast formula - Buffet - Mexican - Italian - Oyster Bar, Steak House. Don't look for anything new and innovative- only the "tried and true" here. Great place to spend a nice vacation. Shuttle service to the Barbary Coast Casino on the Strip.
The location is a few miles south of Mandalay Bay- so don't entertain a thought to walk back from the Strip, as it's way too far south. Equestrian Center is scheduled to open soon, as well as an event center. Nice Bowling Alley, 16 Screen Theatre, and huge Bingo room. Great cocktail service, and plenty of bars and lounges.

... rahat sitten uhkapeleissä... Eli Vegas biksi check, ja eikun unten maille..
Aamulla heräilyjen jälkeen jälleen "aamu-palalle" syömään pullaa ja juomaan kahvia. Sitten kamat kasaan ja baanalle. Hieman sateisen oloisessa kelissä nyt näin päiväsaikaan Hurricane näytti vielä enemmän tuppukylältä kuin ilta pimeällä. Nää on kyllä mielenkiintoisia seikkoja, paikan pääkatu n. kilometrin mittainen, jonka varrella kaikki mahdolliset fast food paikat, lukemattomia motelleja ...
