Have you stayed at WorldMark's Las Vegas resort? Here's your chance to tell other owners what it's really like. How big is the pool? How hot is the hot tub? What do you wish you had known before you left home?

This was probably our most enjoyable stay. We were just there last week for our school's Fall Break so we were there in the middle of the week where there are not as many visitors. This is our...6th or 7th time staying here--We don't want to stay anywhere else when we come to Vegas.

The check in was breezy and there was no, I repeat, NO invitation for a meeting or a free breakfast or a sales pitch. I was sent to Bianca to get my parking pass, and that is what she gave me, along with her number if I needed to reach her for anything. It was an actual enjoyable check in.

We stayed at this resort for 4 days. When we were here last, two of the pools were being worked on. Everything was in full working order while we were here. At nights, the pools were almost empty and we were able to enjoy and chill in the hot tubs while our kids swam.

The room was the typical room--and we enjoy the two bedroom/two bathroom units. Perfect for our family. We did notice that the BBQ grill was taken off the balcony from the room. Is this for maintenance or is this forever? Does anyone know? Also, are they taking them out of ALL the resorts or just this one?

The resort looked lovely. There were some workers who were touching up the paint on the ground. I like the changes that were made to the grounds in this resort. There were also renovations in the front office area, but it wasn't a big deal and nothing was in the way.

The shuttles to the strip are nice and they run every hour from the Resort. (Except at 2:00). There is also a shuttle in the mornings at 10:00 that take you to the grocery store if you need to go. Yes it only drops off at the Monte Carlo. But at the Monte Carlo, there is a free tram that takes you all the way down to the Bellagio; OR, just across the street, there is a free tram in the Excalibur that takes you down to the Luxor and Mandalay Bay. From the Bellagio, it is easy walking to Caesar's Palace, the Flamingo, etc.

We had one thing not working well in our unit--we left a request with the front office in the morning and by the time we got back in the afternoon it was fixed.

For those of you who have never been to this resort, we love it and that is why we keep coming back. We have been here in the months of October, March, May, June: October has been our favorite month staying here and being here midweek helps. We have had some poor stays and we have had some great stays here. The good always outweighs the bad and that is why we keep coming back to this place.

For the first time ever, we were disappointed in the maintenance at the Las Vegas Blvd. resort. The lazy river was dirty from a wind storm two nights before. The big pool was too cold to use. We arrived on a Monday, March 7, 2016. Tuesday, I used the lazy river to swim for fitness, it was still dirty, but did not impact my swimming. We were busy with basketball the next 3 days, so Saturday we went down to use the pools. The river was chilly and STILL full of leaves, etc. The big pool was too cold to even swim laps. I am from Eastern Washington, so I am used to cold water lakes, but it hurt my ears, so I got out. The maintenance crew was just starting to vacuum that pool. By late afternoon, they finally got to the lazy river. The gate into the river nearest building 4 was closed the entire week we were there, due to a broken latch. For the amount of money we pay in maintenance fees, I think this is inexcusable. As I mentioned, this is my first negative post of any type regarding a WM resort. frown wink

I have stayed at the Las Vegas resort several times. It used to be a very nice place to stay. After being battered by the "welcome" staff to attend an update meeting we went to our room. I might add that the girl trying to "welcome us" to an update breakfast assured us that they no longer apply high pressure; and of course, she was pressuring us and even told us we were taking food from her children's mouth by not agreeing to attend the update meeting. Once in our room, we experienced some maintenance issues with our unit. We had been hiking all day and were very tired when we found that our sliding glass door would not close or lock. We contacted the desk and they told us they would send maintenance right away. We waited for a few hours and ate car snacks for dinner as we didn't want to leave for fear they would find us not in the room and not do the repair. We called again and were told that it was to late in the day for them to send someone so we would have to wait until the next day. We told them that we would need another room then because I could not sleep in a unit that did not lock. They didn't have any other units available so we told them that we wanted a full refund and we would have to find a hotel - then they said that they thought one maintenance guy might still be able to come. Maintenance showed up at almost 9 pm and did not have the tools or parts to fix the door. He did manage to get the door locked and just told us we would not be able to use the door. We will go back to the resort but I will not tolerate the harassment by the welcome staff and we expect the unit to be well maintained.

I would avoid this resort unless you are okay with drug use, cigarette smoking, profane language, and drunks, which apparently the management seems to be. I have not had cause, in 15 years of ownership, to complain about any of the resorts we have stayed at, until now. Maybe it's just the Las Vegas (however, we have stayed there at least once a year for the past 7 years) property, or just Las Vegas, but between the evening lifeguard who apparently had been drinking (intoxicated) and the visitors below us smoking Marijuana for four days causing us (my children) to smell it in our rooms and balconies, and the cigarette smokers using profane language in the pool, then the lack of response by the resort staff to address these issues caused us much concern. This resort use to be a great place to visit, but we will have to reconsider future trips to this resort and perhaps Las Vegas in general. Not the place to take our children, family and friends. I could not explain to my children why the resort did not address the problems. Perhaps they did not want to offend the offending parties, which means they chose to offend us and others who want a good place to take the children and enjoy a safe, fun environment. It's beyond me why the resort would allow this to take place. I can't believe I purchased additional credits my first day there. As an owner, I really have no words for this and am appalled that the resort would even allow this to occur on our property. Apparently, the right of individuals to smoke dope, smoke cigarettes in the pool, and use of profane language around my children is more important than my families experience at the resort.

Well, here goes: We checked into the Worldmark Las Vegas Blvd location on Nov. 9, 2015. I do believe that customer service has been on a decline since Wyndham took over. The check-in guy gave us the keys and paperwork to our condo and drew a line on the compound's map showing us how to get to our building. He never told us that there was an elevator in our bldg so we found the door that read stairs, opened it and climbed 6 flights of stairs to the 3rd floor. Looking for our room, we discovered that our room was on the second floor. Ahh, and we found the elevator at the other end of the building. Now back at the check-in area, before we headed to our room, we were sent to the customer service desk to get our shuttle pass and book any shows we would be interested in seeing while in Vegas. Race, who tended to us, said that he could get us a discount on any show. So, we booked 2 different shows. Then he pushed the "When would you like to attend an owner update class"? We told him we just wanted to get on with our vacation and get to the Strip. He then told us that if we didn't attend the owner update he could not give us the discount price for the 2 shows we booked. Frustrated, I told him okay and paid him for the tickets. The next morning after attending the owner update we found out that the time we chose to see one of the shows was not available at the time frame. It was not a change in showtime it has just not been available for that time at all. Then to boot, we were told that we still had to go to the particular show site to obtain the tickets and at that time we let the Box Office know what time and date we want to see the show. What a CIRCUS!!!

Now, at the owner update, the Salesperson, Nicole, was very nice and was explaining several things to us about how to use our Diamond Elite status to its fullest advantage. We told her several times that we were not interested in purchasing more credits. We told her that we were there just for the update and that's all. After some time, she left and came back with her manager, a tall, stocky, female who sat down and started to admonish us about Nicole's role in just showing us how to use our membership to its fullest. Then she told us that since we signed and agreement to purchase 14,000 credits last year in San Diego and then cancelling that transaction the next day, we had given up our OVP (whatever that is) and can only buy more credits from now on at retail price ($3.29 p/credit). At that point everyone there stop treating us politely and nicely. We said we were done and were leaving. And we left to start our vacation having to find our own way out. Folks, this seems to be the new Wyndham customer service treatment. As I said before, things have been going downhill since Wyndham took over.

Remember I mention earlier that Race at Customer Service said he gave us a great discount on show tickets since we agreed to attend that owner update. Well, when we got to the Box Office at the two locations where the shows were held, we picked up our actual tickets and discovered that the price of the tickets that they rent there are the same for anyone who walked up and bought tickets to a show. So, we attended that owner's update thinking we got a great discount on show tickets when all we got was insulted. Check around before you are tricked into attending something at the resort you don't have to attend if you don't want to. These folks are trained to misrepresent facts just to get you to attend their functions.

Alright, this is my 3rd time to review this property this year. We visit this property about 3-4 times per year so I think that we have a good take if things are on the mark or not. In May, there were some things that should have taken care of...We visited a couple of weeks ago and things were much better.

My husband and I took our siblings to the resort to show off Worldmark. We have been members for 2 years and decided that it was about time we did so. We bought tickets for the Junefest concert at Sunset Station and we stayed at the Worldmark for 2 nights. We were not disappointed with the pool situation this time. There seemed to be more lifeguards watching for behaviors that could contaminate the water and all of the pools and hot tubs were open so there was a lot more room for people to spread out. The only thing that went wrong with the pools this time is that the lazy river area had to be closed down because a kid pooped in it. (Sigh...)

Check in was easy; it was very busy when we checked in; but the elite line got me through faster. Our unit wasn't ready yet; that was ok, since we were right on our way to Sunset Station. They just gave us our keys and texted us at the concert where our room was--no big deal. They were also very kind to our family who were staying with us. It was Reuben again at the desk and he was wonderful...Again. There was no pleading for a meeting--That was nice.

All in all, things were better at the resort this time. I am excited to return once again!

I hope that the triplets visiting had/have a great time! Las Vegas is awesome and there are so many cool things to do. Happy Birthday!

Thank you for the great suggestions, AND the happy birthday wishes!
Feeling lucky that I can cordinate three college and internship schedules to get a few days away to celebrate. We were considering going to a show as they love Cirque du Soleil, so we may consider the Michael Jackson show. And the tour sounds like fun too, as I know that once they've been to see the nightlife once, thay probably won't need to go again. smile

Happy Birthday to your triplets, I'm sure they will have a great time in Vegas.There are two things we did the last time we were there at this resort(I've been there twice) We went to see the Micheal Jackson tribute show at the Rio,if it's still going.I thought it would be very bad,it was very very good.It was like a real Michael show. A live band and,the guy play Michael could sing just like the real thing(RIP Michael).Well worth the money we paid,and as show go in Vegas.The guy playing Michael also comes out and takes pictures with you.(for a fee but he is very nice).

If you never been to the Grand Canyon,make it a day trip as we did the last time we were there.It was the best bus tour I'VE ever been on.The tour guide(Tommy) was FUNNY!! It was a fun family time trip.

As for the pool and what not at the resort. I have never had any problems with guest or staff around the pool.NO dout some reviewers have had issues and I do believe them.I hope the management and staff saw these reviews and took action.

Happy Birthday Triplets!!! And I hope you all have a great time in Vegas

I'm bringing my triplets next month for their 21st birthday. Since they aren't big "party" types, and I imagine that their birthday night on the town will probably be enough, I'm looking for suggestions for other activities.

Also concerned about what I'm reading about pools being closed and disgusting/disrespectful behaviors being allowed at the resort. What's the current status of construction/renovation and management enforcement of the resort rules?

Thanks!

We come to this resort 2-3 times a year and I have never been as disgusted with the lack of respect for the rules of the property, particularly the pool. I would like to continue thinking that this is a high class resort that I can relax at. That was not the case over Mother's Day weekend.

First of all and most of all: the pool and hot tubs. There were 2 pools and 2 hot tubs closed, which put ALL guests in close proximity. But, there is no excuse for the lack of class and respect. Can we get any more disgusting? Kids, under-aged mostly, inside the hot tubs with bags of chips. Eating, dropping chips, rinsing their hands, spitting at each other, splashing around and driving everyone else out of the space. One little girl was crying and screaming for her mother to come and get her, but she was no where to be found until she damn well felt like surfacing. But then it was to leave her screaming kid in the hot tub and just tell her "shhhhhh". Please! Then there were the parents of the children eating chips in the hot tub. Watch and take care of your children people!

Let's not even get into all of the regularly diapered (non swimming diapers) kids in the hot tubs. Oh and the adults drinking beer in the hot tubs and pouring beer into the water, coughing it up and spitting in the tub. Can people NOT read, or just choose NOT to read the rules.

The most disappointing thing is that there were lots and lots lifeguards on duty that weren't worth a hang. There was one lifeguard that was really good, scrambling around trying to keep all of the disgusting and unruly people on track, but one wasn't enough.

Check in was a little slow, but then again, it was busy. Ruebon at the concierge's desk was awesome, so shout out to him.

We were there the same time last year, and didn't see anything that disgusting. I hope that this isn't going to be the case when I am there in June.

I am currently checked in. I traveled from Wa by car. 21 hours to this resort. I called in 2 hours before I arrived. Anthony told me that there was a chance of getting a better room. i told him I had a 1 and a 3 year old and wanted to get as close to the pool as possible. I arrived and talked to Hector. He went in the back room for about 10 minutes. He came out and told me there was no available rooms. I took my reservation and left. I called back and talked to Anthony, He told me that when I was checking in 5 minutes earlier the room he was going to give me was under going maintenance and that it looked like it would be cleared up. He then transferred me to another lady at the resort. She told me that there was water damage in several of the rooms and that we were not able to move. She then transferred me to another resort assistant manager who told me that our reservations were just made and so the people who booked 13 months out received priority. He admitted that there were emtpy rooms. Does anyone come to the Las Vegas strip for 7 days. I believe that is what you have to book when you are 13 months out. I received 4 different answers from 4 different people. I could have just been told 2 hours earlier that there were no available changes. I came back to my room and there was a message on my phone that said the resort would be undergoing maintenance on the 2 end pools(where i am) and that there would be extreme noise and dust from the jack hammers.There was not and still is not any notification on my reservation or on the site that this would be happening. Tomorrow I am going to go take my kids to the pool and have a great time. I just thought I would post what is currently going on and the way they take care of people who aren't in the elite status.

I was in Las Vegas Blvd. for a week at Spring Break, with my two small boys and my Mom. We all had a great time! We stayed two nights at the Tropicana before we came here as we couldn't get a full week at Blvd. I won't do that again, especially with small kids. Too much packing/unpacking. Catching cabs as I didn't think we needed a car, which you don't if you just stay at Blvd. 15 minutes from the airport.
The resort is nice and big with a big swimming pool, lazy river and two hot tubs. The pool is only 3 1/2 feet deep, 4' in some places, so it's not a worry for small children. The waterfall in the hot tub is wonderful. It was a bit on the cold side a few days, not sure why. There is a small children's pool at the far end which no one uses as the main pool has a "kiddie area" which is great. I would suggest turning the children's pool into another hot tub! The playground is another fun feature if you have small children. The other suggestion to Worldmark is have the shuttle for the grocery store take you to Smith's instead of Von's. Smith's is just down the street and I actually walked there but it's hard to walk back if you have a lot of groceries. The daily shuttle to the Monte Carlo on the strip is fantastic! It takes you there on the hour and bring you home every hour on the half hour. Very handy and a nice day trip to the strip to do some gambling and see a show!
Yes, the sales people are VERY pushy! I do go to the updates as I enjoy them but stick to my guns when I talk to a Sales person. No money and I have enough credits to do all the travelling I want! Thank you now I have to go so I'll get my gift card and go now. I will return here with my husband and bring along Grandma again so hubby and I can go to the strip for some grown up time!

Hey i have to agree with you. Not only that but they called us at home and went through a 1 hour speech and then got all mad we we said no. No way to run a business. Very disappointed
with that part of the resort. Otherwise we have truly enjoyed our stays here....

Amen! !!
And to the point, this had better stop at this resort. I went through the same hell the last time I stayed there. I had my brother-inlaw and his wife with me a they could not believe this hard sales pitch.

I just got back from a 8 day stay on Las Vegas Blvd. I have been here many times over the years. Very nice resort and well maintained facility. I have three WM accounts with all the points I need for my traveling. I am not interested in purchasing more points thus, avoid “owner updates” like the plague. My one complaint about Worldmark is aggressive staff pushing for an owner to go to an update and promise “No hard selling” at the update. This time the aggressive staff was at Worldmark Las Vegas Blvd. We checked in and went over to the welcome desk to get a parking permit. I was asked when I wanted to go to my owner update. I replied that I own a bunch of points and don’t desire to purchase more points. She said “Oh, no one will try to sell you anymore points. This is just an owner update”. I replied “No thank you, I am here with another couple and we have a busy schedule while here”. She said, I can just put you in for an 8am meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday etc…” I replied “No thank you. Again, I don’t want or need to go to an owner update and I really do not want to purchase anymore points”. She said “We also have a Saturday meetings open”. I replied “Your not listening to me and I am becoming very frustrated that you are not listening to me. I just want my parking pass and I would like to go to my room”. At that point, it definitely appeared that I was no longer welcome and she quickly gave me my parking pass.
The next day, I was called at 9am from the welcome desk and again assaulted with pleas to go to the owner update because I “needed it”. Again, I was polite but to the point and said “I have no intention of going to an owner meeting and please stop calling me”. She replied that I am really missing something and if I change my mind just call………
The following day, there was a message light blinking on my room phone. Thinking it was another couple at the resort trying to locate us, I called the front desk and asked what the message was. Guess what? It was the “Welcome desk” again asking me to go to an owner update! I must have been talking to the same lady as I did the first day because she would just not give up and kept pressuring me to go to a meeting. The conversation finally ended when I said, “I am going to hang up on you now” and I did. Can you believe I got called two more times that same day from the Welcome desk! The last time, I just hung up on the lady and unplugged all my phones in the room.
The couple that came with us and stayed in our unit with us was really interested in Worldmark and becoming a member until they witnessed the harassment I went through. This is not the first time I have encountered aggressive sales staff with Worldmark. I love being a member of Worldmark but, this type of harassment of their own members just has to stop. This type of aggressive sales technique is no different to being on a city street and have a pan handler be aggressive with you to get money from you and follows you down the street. It is not my nature to be rude but the next time I am aggressively pushed like this I may have to become rude. I am sorry that I even have to say that.

Just returned from a week in Las Vegas (Las Vegas Blvd) and will give both good and bad reviews:
Beautiful property and extremely stylish decor. Friendly staff and entire property is kept clean, neat and well maintained. Staff were helpful and even enjoyed owner update i attended to get the Jersey Boys/Buffet discount. I would return without hesitation and would recommend. Several pools to choose from with hoyer lifts in each one. This was something that truly impressed me for those who need help getting into the pools.
There is underground parking and on hot days it was nice to get into a unheated car. Grocery stores close and shopping abounds for those who like that. An 18 screen theatre at Town Square and drive to strip not to far.
MY only complaints in the 3 bedroom we stayed in was that the LR furniture was awkward to seat everyone in with too many chairs for the size of the room. Also, each of the 2 bathrooms did not have have enough towel racks for the amount of people allowed to stay in the 3 bedroom. But that is my own OCD talking!

I don't think so to be honest, it might be pretty boring for teenagers smirk


If you like shows, I'd say the answer is yes. There are lots of shows teens would like. The Mob Museum would be interesting. For nature sorts of things, there are a lot of opportunities; for shopping, there's a great outlet mall, and of course, there's just being in the pool and lazing about.

We just returned from 3 nights at this resort. It was TERRIFIC! The condo was more than adequate, parking was underground (perfect in the desert heat), security was good, staff was friendly, pool area very nice. What more could you want???!!!

We recently stayed at Las Vegas Blvd and had a couple of 3 bedrooms for a family reunion. Most of my family was there, and since this was our second time here, and my family's first time in Las Vegas, we were just hoping for the best of everything. The resort was fantastic, as usual. And the strip and the sights were no letdown. We went to a couple of shows again, "O" by Cirque du Soleil/ Chris Angel and even went to see David Spade. No letdown on the entertainment either. All in all, we were all very happy with the resort and Vegas. The lazy river ride, which we spent a lot of time in, was a very relaxing way to spend some time during the day while out in the sun. There is nothing that we can think of that is a disappointment with this resort. The only bad experience we had while here was the occupants that were staying in the condo above us. They were constantly dumping their cigarette butts and empty soda bottles on our deck below them. Even after approaching the front desk and complaining about this, it still happened. We have been members of Worldmark for some time now, and this is the second resort that we are actually thinking of never going back to. The other resort used to be our favorite, but after seeing what was happening there, and nothing being done about it either, we have decided to never go back to that one. I always thought that these resorts were really nice, but the caliber of some of the guests and resort staff are turning this into a bunch of cheap motels. We are not ready to give up on this yet, as we still have some good experiences throughout Worldmark, but if other resorts are turning into what these two are turning into, we shall have to think twice about this membership.

But not to take anything away from these resorts, they are a wonderful resort all in all to stay at. It is just a select few guests that are ruining it for me. If you plan to visit the Las Vegas Blvd, you will have fun at the resort and Las Vegas. And we shall more than likely be going back there again, as we both love Vegas.

Haha, we did the same thing with the chinese food - we liked it very much as well!

This was our first stay at WM in Las Vegas Blvd. It was about 7 miles from the strip. They provide a free shuttle, always on time
and Drivers were friendly and courteous. Upon checking in, we had to wait for awhile which was kind of weird since there was no one else
but us next in line. But as soon as we finally got our turn to check in . . . it was all good. We were then asked to go to another desk to get our
parking permit and shuttle, then a young very friendly lady informed us about the resort and what’s new in Vegas. She then invited us to
attend the „update“ presentation but had to politely decline since we were there for a tradeshow/conference
and will not have time to do anything else. She kindly understood. One of our couple friends were staying at the resort too, so I decide to join them
to the presentation as their guest while my husband was in the conference. I really did not get a chance to see/hear all, because I had to leave but our
friends said that it was not so much of update but a scheme to get you to upgrade/buy, they were a bit disappointed.

We had a 2 br/2bth unit. The 1br unit was all booked out for the time we were there. I must say that the resort is new and one of the best yet.
Our unit smelled and looked very new . .. spacious with elegant color and decor. Kitchen and dining area is very inviting and well equipped.
Our balcony overlook the pool area, very nice indeed. There were not so much people so it was pretty calm and quiet. There is a market and starbucks on site.

Hi I dont know if that would be possible but not hurt to try...
I'm trying to book 3 bedrooms in Las Vegas (on Las Vegas Blvd) this coming Thursday 6/5/14 and Friday 6/6/14 as I already have 3 bedrooms on Saturday and Sunday 6/7/14 and 6/8/14. I'm hoping someone will be willing to switch the rooms with me to 3 bedrooms from 2 bedrooms Twin. I dont want to stay at 2 bedrooms for first 2 nights then move to 3 bedrooms for the last 2 nights. Possible?

We are just wrapping up our stay at the Las Vegas Blvd. Worldmark. This is our third stay here at this resort. It is far enough away from home, yet so very close. The only thing that I wanted for Mother's Day was to get away from my hometown; my husband came through with flying colors, taking me and my children to this wonderful resort.

First of all, check in was very quick. They had a few rooms available and let me choose which one my family would like to stay in. I was able to obtain the parking pass fairly quickly. My husband and I went to every meeting for a whole year. This time, we refrained from going. Las Vegas Blvd. is now a huge give away site, but we didn't want to spend any time in an owners update. I simply had the person the desk write their name and number on the "welcome package" and told them I would get ahold of them if I wanted to go to an update. We found a great parking spot in the building very close to the elevator.

As always, everyone was very friendly and cheerful around the resort. Any employee that we ran across fussed over my youngest daughter and was very kind to my older children. The front desk especially was kind to my teenage son as he cashed in on free movie rental after free movie rental for the four days that we were here. It is also impressing how when rules are set, they are obeyed. We appreciate that there aren't people walking their dogs around the resort, letting them poop and pee everywhere. Thumbs up for cleanliness!

The room that we stayed in was very clean. It seemed to be a bit smaller than others that we have stayed in, but it did the trick. I love how the kitchens are equipped with most everything that one would need to make a meal. It was nice to eat in. We ate out once while we were here on the strip and it was about 100 dollars. We spent that much on all of our groceries at Vons, so it was nice to eat in.

The pools were warm and the lazy river was most welcome in the heat on our first and second days. The weather cooled down while we were here and the wind blew, but we don't let things like that bother us...That can't be controlled.

The free shuttle to the strip is nice. We were able to do our usual standard things that we love to do as a family, and then catch the shuttle back to the resort early enough to go back and make dinner.

There is really something for everyone at this resort. My children were able to get putter clubs and golf balls and hit them around on the putting green for a while. There are also horseshoes, basketball, etc. available on site. We are thinking about getting rooms for our family members and doing a reunion here at the resort in Vegas.

All in all VERY NICE, RELAXING, trip.

We have been members for 1 year and two months. So far we have stayed in: Las Vegas Blvd (3), Anaheim, Oceanside, and Gleneden. We are going to New Orleans in two weeks and to Bear Lake one week after that. We LOVE our ownership!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We just returned from a 7 night (4/19 - 4/26) stay at Worldmark Las Vegas-Boulevard. This was our first stay at the Worldmark Las Vegas-Boulevard, although we've been to Las Vegas many time previously. We stayed in a 2 bedroom queen, in building 14, 4th floor.

The Worldmark Las Vegas is very easy to find. My wife went to check-in, which went flawless until she had to go and pickup the parking pass. She was hounded to see a presentation, and they didn't seem to want to take no for an answer. They offered her $100, then free tickets to a show. She can be pretty stubborn, and the lady finally handed over the parking pass.

This may have been the cleanest, best kept property we've stayed out. The grounds were awesome. Three pools, a lazy river, and not very many people. The weekend was by far the busiest, and even then there was plenty of room at all the pools. The pool area was clean, with music playing, which I liked, but some may not. Plenty of towels, but they are only available at the lazy river area.

There is a security station at the entrance, very friendly. Our room was nice. We were on the 4th floor and overlooked the farthest south pool. The rooms in our building were being renovated, new tile, dishwasher, fridges, furniture, beds, paint, cabinets, etc. They were working on floors 1 and 2 during our stay. The noise wasn't an issue.

Our room although nice, had definitely seen better days, but by no means was it in bad shape. I can't wait to go back and see the renovations. We did have one problem with the air conditioner. We called, and maintenance came up right away. He checked, and said we'd frozen it up, as we had turned it down to 65. He said they shouldn't be turned lower than 70, which probably explains why we've had the same problem at other locations. It was the first time we'd been told that, but it does make sense. He thawed it out, and it worked fine the rest of the stay, but we didn't set it lower than 70.

We did the typical Las Vegas things. Saw Michael Jackson One, rode the NY NY roller coaster, went to Counts, Kustoms, Pawn Stars and Ricks Restoration, all shows on the History Channel. Ricks Restoration was by far the best. During the tour we saw most of the workers who are on the show, they have a short guided tour. Counts Kustoms was also pretty cool.

Also drove to Grand Canyon West. It was about a 2 hr 45 minute drive. The only bad part of the drive was about 9 miles of it was on a dirt road. They are working to pave the 9 mile stretch, so it's possible that they paving will be completed soon. We purchased our tickets, which included a meal, and a walk on the Skywalk. We boarded the bus, and got off at each of the three stops. The views at stops 2 and 3 are amazing.

Just north of the Worldmark is a fast food restaurant called Raising Canes. It's a chicken finger fast food restaurant, that is really good. The drive through line was long, 10+ cars, so we went inside. It was packed to! May be the best chicken fingers I've ate.

Overall, I couldn't be happier with this resort. It met all of my expectations, and might have been our best Worldmark stay, if it hadn't been for the parking pass issue!

Glad the check in didn't ruin your stay .I stayed there in Sept 2013 and had the worst check in ever.Still it was our best stay ever and we can't wait to come back. I think you did the right thing by walking away. I just stay at Depo Bay in Oregon it was great, and they understand no.

Happy Travels
