BDAY GETAWAY TO VEGAS : )

THERE'S A COOL BAR WHERE YOU CAN HANG OUT, AFFORDABLE SHOPPING, THE GIFT SHOP IS OPEN 24 HRS. WE STOPPED BY AND PICKED UP SOME SNACKS AT 4AM HAHA! GOOD FOOD, SUPER FRIENDLY STAFF. YOU CAN WALK TO THE STRIP OR TAKE THE BUS, IT'S KINDA FAR AWAY FROM ALL THE ACTION. WE WALKED FOR 30 MINS AND GOT AS FAR AS TREASURE ISLAND, THE ENCORE IS RIGHT NEXT DOOR AND IT'S A REALLY COOL PLACE FOR NITECLUBING. IT IS N O T A GOOD IDEA TO TAKE YOUR KIDS OUT IN THE NITE TIME, TABLE GAMES INCLUDE EXOTIC POLE DANCERS. I WASN'T TOO IMPRESSED WITH THE ROOMS THE CARPETS COULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE CLEANER LOOKIN OR REDONE, WE'RE NOT SMOKERS AND ALL THEY HAD AVAILABLE WHEN WE CHECKED IN WERE SMOKING ROOMS, WHEN WE SPECIFICALLY ASKED TO HAVE NON SMOKING. OTHER THAN THAT WE WERE PRETTY PLEASED WITH THE SERVICE AND HAD A GREAT TIME.

Not What It Used To Be...

While the staff is friendly, the hotel has cut back so many services that you can't even get coffee in your room...no room service, no coffee pot to make your own, no daily sheet-changing. There is no more Keno in the coffee shop (they run news on the screens now), touch-screen machines check you in at the front desk, the pool is closed, the snack bar in the race book is only open from 1 a.m. til 6 a.m...you cannot get a sandwich while you watch the races or games. While the rooms are cheap, remember, you get what you pay for. I am shocked that this hotel has not been imploded like the Dunes, Stardust, and others. It makes me so sad cause it used to be such a toney place. It's depressing to go to dinner at another hotel up the street and come back to your "less than Super-8" hotel. Bare bones, baby.

Eh.

I just isn't that good for the money. My room was clean, but definitely showing wear. TV with a very limited selection of channels, bed, bathroom. The basics. A huge, heavy comforter was the only option besides a paper-thin sheet. It's Las Vegas - it gets hot, and some of us would rather not run the A/C all night. But that window that opened a quarter of an inch helped.The pool was closed for the season when I was there, something I didn't see [...] mentioned. Hotel management tried to tell me how about how cold it was getting, but several days in a row of my stay had temps in the 80s.Dining options are very limited. Chains in the Riviera food court, or hit The Strip. I wouldn't go north of the hotel - the neighborhood is a little sketchy.Also: They'll extract money from you in any way possible, from overall layout to fees. They charge a $7 per day Resort Fee, never mind that I never came anywhere near any of the alleged 'resort' features. Internet was $10 per day. My friends surmised it was to get you into the casino as much as possible. Which happened, because getting from the street to the room is the very definition of maze and labyrinth. People who could do a 10 day backpacking trip in the wilderness were getting lost. And so many of the staff just looked beaten down by the world, just not very happy - and that carried into not terribly helpful.

Riviera Hotel

The Hotel is at the end of the Las Vegas Strip, good restaurants close to it. But if like to walk to the most exiting hotels like the Mirage, The venetian, The MGM need to walk. Is a nice walk, but need to wear nice walking shoes. If You are in las Vegas, there is a lot of places to go Outside of the strip. The Spring Preserve (A short drive) If stay in the RIVIERA, Bring your own pillows. And ABC store open 24 hours is a great deal Cheap beers, any brand in the store, and can take to the street to drink. Front of the RIVIERA, you will found CIRCUS, CIRCUS Hotel, and a place to buy half price tikects for any Las Vegas Show. So wait until you are in Vegas to buy tickects The Grang Canyon Tour (Need to use a private company, is a long day trip to the south rim, and the price range from $80.00 to $90.00

Hotel a Casino was nice. Enjoyed staying there. Very friendly people. One minor problem. I left the room to get ice. When I got back, the lock on the door stopped working. It took an hour and a half to get the problem resolved. They had to get a locksmith to come break into the room. Would have been nice to be compensated.
