The Skinny

Sure, Bally's Vegas looks sort of classy, with the Sterling Brunch and shiny casino ceiling. This is your father's casino, a middle-of-the-road joint on the Las Vegas Strip. The location is great, though, the rooms are spacious and rates are good compared to its high-falutin' neighbors.

Took a nice three day trip and stayed a Bally's for the first time.

Great location right in the heart of the strip...easy to walk to most of the other casinos, plus the tram is on the East side which connects you to those a little farther...

Room Quality:

Big, clean, sedate rooms; the joint does not scream or holler. Bally's Vegas Hotel just goes quietly about its business of having very clean, large and better-than-average rooms. The Deluxe rooms are the updated rooms.  The king-bed rooms have little sofas to pass out on. The rooms have big windows and built-in safes. If you like Hilton hotels, you'll love Bally's Las Vegas. Two-bed rooms have queens. The South Tower may give a better view of the Bellagio fountains if you can get one facing that direction. The North Tower rooms are bit nicer, though, and easier to get in and out of. The bathrooms have all you would expect, including hair dryers, and are a bit nicer than average. Also, this hotel's location at a prime intersection is hard to beat.

Service Quality:

Good. In general, the workers at Bally's Vegas Hotel and Casino seem to think Bally's is something special, which encourages everyone else to believe it too.

What You Get Bottles of in the Bathroom:

Shampoo, conditioner and lotion, and it's not generic crap. This is honest to goodness brand name stuff with pretty smells.

Clientele:

Bally's Vegas Hotel attracts people who aren't going for flash, just someplace plain but better than average. The crowd is mostly late-30s on up to about 110. There's no age segregation here. The young adults tend to go heavy on the face paint and courtin' duds, while the older folks go for casual sportswear.

How's the Pool?

It's a ginormous sort-of rectangle and is fine for swimming and sunbathing, but not for swinging vine to vine, although the landscaping is pretty nice. The pool doesn't get too crowded, and there is a nice snack bar there. One other big advantage of staying at Bally's Vegas Hotel is that the pool is deeper than 3 feet; it actually has a 12' deep end, and that is rare in Vegas. This place also has tennis courts and another really shallow pool for kids. 

Resort Fee:

At Bally's Hotel and Casino Las Vegas, there is now a resort fee of $18... say what? Includes internet for one device, fitness center access for two and local phone calls.

Is it Worth It?

It's a pretty standard hotel on the Strip, not too heavy on your wallet, unless you spring for all the extras.

Table Games:

Blackjack, craps, roulette, Let It Ride, Pai Gow, and others. There's nothing that will surprise you, but they do have a large Asian customer base, and a wider selection of Asian table games.

Bet Minimums:

$5 at the slow times, moving up on weekends and during holidays. Craps can be as low as $5 with that 3x4x5x brand of odds that rolls off your tongue and makes a dent in your wallet.

Machines:

From a nickel on up to the "Champagne" slots at $100. Heck, if we had $100 we would be hustling three-card monte on the bridge in front of the Bellagio.

Cocktails?

Fair cocktail service. They might not bring them around often, but when they do they sure are strong.

Who Gets Comps?

$25 a hand bettors might see some buffets. You may get lucky and get comped a rooms or something along those lines if you bet more than that pretty consistently. The slot club for owner Harrah's links a lot of properties. It is nice to be able to gamble several places with a single card.

Number of TVs:

They have five big projection screens, about six large HD TVs on the wall and a handful of smaller TVs at the bar. The wall-mounts are for the horses and the others are generally for the sports.

Number of Seats:

Around 250. All seats in the front are at long desks with individual TVs.

Number of Betting Windows:

12 or 13, backed up by big electronic signboards, even for the ponies.

Free Drinks?

High-limit sports bettors and every chump with a race ticket get drinks. They seem to be strict about this, or at least they were with us.

Snack Bar?

No snack bar here.  Look for some Bally's Las Vegas Coupons and buy a few extra hot dogs or sandwiches to stuff down your pants from the nearby Nathan's Deli.

Other Notes:

For you high-rollers, there is a super swank VIP room with sofas and real nice TVs. It's cavernous and a bit noisy because of the floors and high ceilings.  And, obviously, you want your sports book quiet as a church.  Still, it's one of the best in town.  It's not near the casino, but at the back of the property behind the Avenue Shoppes, on the way to the monorail.

Number of Tables:

They have about ten tables in a fairly roomy room near registration. On weekends, you may see almost all the tables going. It's non-smoking, but it's a big deal when the casino around you is lighting up.

Comfort of Chairs:

Not too bad, actually. Our bums complained less than usual while resting on them while losing all our money at Bally's Hotel and Casino Las Vegas.

Closed Room or Open to Casino?

It's not closed, it's just an area off the floor.  It's near a bar and some table games, so it can get noisy at night.

Game Spreads and Limits:

Mostly Hold 'Em at $3-$6, and no-limit at $1-$2 (occasionally $2-$5). You better know what the heck you're doing at the no-limit or the sharks will eat your shorts and shoes. Maybe your socks too. We once saw one guy eat another guy's sweatshirt.

Beginner Games or Classes:

Not here, but weekdays are quiet enough for a beginner to get some help, just be careful who you ask.

How Crowded is the Room?

This is a successful room with enough players to keep it busy 24/7. Expect waits on weekends and the occasional weeknight.

Comps?

A buck an hour plus a few Harrah's tier points, standard for the Harrah's joints.

How Good Are the Players?

Some decent players at all levels, but definitely beatable tourists at the $3-$6 and sometimes the No-limit. The good news is, the bad players keep playing until all their dough is gone.

What Else Do I Need to Know?

A rather plain room, but the action is good.  This room reopened in a casino that gave up poker once already. When poker stops being popular on TV, expect this room to go away again.

Bally's Las Vegas Guest Rooms

Classic Room

Classic Room

One king or two queen beds in rooms with more than 450 square feet. These rooms are trying to be elegantly decorated with their lavish furnishings.

The in-room safe will house all your precious gems while you're out, but of course there's a surcharge for that as well.

Best value in Las Vegas

If you are looking for true value in a strip hotel, this is the best deal in Las Vegas. The absolute best location in town, a fine hotel, with good check in times, reliable elevators. ( You would be surprised how many Las Vegas hotels have bad, slow elevators.) easy plentiful parking and best of all NO RESORT FEES. The pool is a pleasant surprise. Not the greatest in Vegas, but it has a deep end, where you can actually swim, rather than the wading around in most Vegas pools. This place has zero downside, and its, by a huge margin, the best mid level strip hotel in town. And as a cherry on the cake, there are NO resort fees. So you get a rate quoted, that is what you are going to pay.

Back to Ballys

Service was great all around. I tried the $20. trick at check in and we got a very nice room with a fantastic view and the clerk did not even want to accept the tip. I had to insist. Drink service is 5-star if you tip a buck a drink. I was near the Keno and my glass would only get down to 1/3 full and the waitress would be right there with another. We go to Vegas a couple times a year and the last time we decided to "upgrade" to Caesars Palace. What a mistake. The room we were given in the Roman tower was a dump. Our room at Ballys was nicer for half the money. We've stayed at the Mirage, (very nice), Venetian and Palazzo,(fantastic rooms, but too far to stumble back), lately, but for what we are looking for, Ballys can't be beat. This time we booked our flight from Toronto and 4 nights at Ballys for $504.00 each including all taxes and fees. Can't wait to get there again.

Re: Bally's Vegas

We've stayed at Ballys 4 or 5 times now since staying at MGM once (too big), and we feel comfortable there. Don't come to Ballys if you're expecting a young, hip crowd; go to Planet Hollywood or Rio or Palms to hang out with the beauiful people because you won't get it at Ballys. Ballys is pretty much middle America.

We stay at Ballys because with our Total Rewards we get a couple of nights free and we pay a discounted price for the other two nights. We've considered paying more to stay at Paris or one of the other Harrah's hotels, but our Total Rewards points don't go as far with those places and we don't come to Vegas to blow our money on a fancy hotel. The rooms at Ballys are large and comfortable; they work for us. Besides, how much time do you spend in your room?

The location can't be beat and because it's under the same roof as Paris you get the benefits as staying at Paris.

My only complaint is the sports book is too far from the rest of the casino. I mainly wager on sports so it's quite a haul downstairs to the sports book.

Other reasons I like Ballys:

*Le Burger Brasserie in Paris (it's actually close to Ballys in the walkway to Paris) has the best burgers I've ever eaten. And the waitresses are pretty hot!

*For cheap food, the Mexican restaurant sells for tacos and Modelo draft beers for $2 each. I would rather pay $2 for a beer than to go thirsty waiting on a freebie from a waitress.

*Nosh (next to the South tower elevators) has delicious deli sandwiches.

*I like slumming it at Bill's Gamblin Saloon next door every now and then. Oldtimers would call Bill's a "sawdust joint."

*There is an Italian/pizza restaurant in the Paris/Ballys walkway that has great pizza and sandwiches.

Spring Break Getaway

Took a nice three day trip and stayed a Bally's for the first time.

Great location right in the heart of the strip...easy to walk to most of the other casinos, plus the tram is on the East side which connects you to those a little farther away.

Friendly and quick check-in and got a comp upgrade to the North Tower. Nice room, solid but by no means lavish (I'm still amazed at how many places still have traditional and not fltat screen HDTV), and no mini fridge - a slight dissapointment as I like to keep bottled water chilled.

One bummer was the moving sidewalk out front was not working. It wasn't closed off, just inoperable.

The gaming floor is set up well. Good selection of tables too and you can still find $5 minimums. It also has a common corridor by the roulette tables that links you to Paris.

We did find the $2 tacos and beer located over by the sportsbook and elevators to the North tower. Worth every penny (no pun intended, it's actually pretty good). There also a lower level area with more eats and shops down below.

Didn't get to check out the pool (it was closed and also pretty cold when we were there).

Overall we had a very nice visit, and Bally's was certainley part of it.

Bally's Hotel

Overall, Ballys Hotel in Las Vegas is good, in the middle of the Strip. Not bad odds on the slots either! We checked in late as a group of 4 and had requested 2 non-smoking rooms that were next to each other. Instead, we were placed in smoking rooms on different floors. The next day we were promised rooms next to each other that were non-smoking and when we went to the front desk, they had no knowledge of this request. UGH! After speaking with the front desk manager, we were upgraded to the North Tower for free and were given great rooms across the hall from each other.Tips: South Tower has big rooms with small refrigerators in them. The sleeping rooms and bathrooms are rather spacious but a bit dingy. North Tower has rooms that are much nicer but a bit smaller and did not have refrigerators or coffee pots in the rooms.

Perfect location

I was upgraded to the North Tower because I have a Harrah's Total Rewards Card. I'm fairly loyal to their casinos because they have the best comps. Have stayed in several hotels on the strip over time. For the mid-price range, I was very happy with this one. Very convenient to get to other places in Vegas. Easy walk over to Caesars Palace and the Forum Shops and you can even go in the Paris Hotel without even having to go outdoors. Service was friendly. Valet parking was quick and painless. The hotel restaurants are basic but there are unlimited restaurants to chose from in the area.

Bally's is a great place for the price

We paid an average of $78 a night for a 4 night stay...smoking deal! The room had 2 queen size beds and a satisfactory work station. The location is right in the center of town, on the strip, and could not be better.NO, its one of the nicest hotels on the strip, but, who cares, I didn't come to vegas to stay in our room!A few great perks to staying at Bally's:~Next to Bellagio with the free water show-beautiful at sunset.~Next to Treasure Island with the free pirate show-pretty cool.~Connected walkway to Paris hotel-lots of shopping.~Connected to the Monorail that takes you all around the main strip in vegas.
