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 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.
We really enjoyed our stay and the unit was very comfortable and relaxing. We ordered chinese food and had them deliver to our unit -- worked out well and it was very tasty dinner. The shuttle to and from the strip was always on time. Shuttle will drop you off at Monte Carlo, then from there you can either walk along the strip or take the lightrail from Monte Carlo to Bellagio. We walked most of the time . . . a lot of new things in LV since the last time we were there. We had a great time. Will definitely come back to this resort . . . it was nice.

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?

Happy late Mother Day to you. Glad you and your family had a great time.Thanks for posting here because it helps other members, old and new get a feel for this and other resorts.Your review is and update for me because the Lazy River was closed when we were there.(boy did we miss it in that heat) Hope you have fun on your next two trips.

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

Just got back from a 5 night stay in a 3 bdrm unit. I was pleasantly surprised because the unit was completely remodeled since my last visit in March 2013. New carpet, paint, floor tile, furniture, cabinets, lamps, tables, chairs, couch ...everything is new. They basically gutted the unit and changed everything to a more contemporary and chic decor.

I previously reviewed this resort in February 2013, I believe. Once again I had a very enjoyable stay and after dealing with the smoky interiors of the Strip casinos it is always a treat to return to the clean, peaceful, smoke free WM accomodations.

Again my only complaint is the so-called "owner education" sign-up staff when you go to get your parking pass. I told the gent that I had no interest in a presentation. They are well versed in disregarding the word "No" and he immediately replied, "it's not a presentation, but an owner-education". Right, an education on how to endure a hard sell! Once I got my pass I just walked away as I was not up for a debate after driving for the past 5 hours.

Well, I guess the 10 minute hassle of obtaining the parking pass is a small price to pay for all of the other upgrades and added benefits that come with the Wyndham affiliation.

We just spent four days at the Las Vegas Blvd. resort. It is a beautiful resort with ample security ...you definitely feel safe there. The grounds are beautifully kept and the pools are delightful if you are there when the temperatures are warm enough to swim ...which is most of the time! It was just a little bit cool for our early February stay. There are plenty of places to eat nearby if you prefer not venturing onto the busy part of the strip. A Vons grocery store is within a couple blocks so that is convenient as well. The resort is near the airport but we were not bothered with the sound of planes. My only complaint about the resort would be that the units are pretty small for such an elaborate resort. Our three bedroom unit was comparable to a one bedroom unit in other locations we have stayed. The master bedrooms are small and the bathrooms for the master are very small!....only a sink countertop a few inches wider than the sink itself. No place to put any toiletries! The shower in the master is a minimal stall with two mans wallet size shelves to put items on.
If you've been to Las Vegas but never visited the Valley of fire State Park... one hour north of Vegas… You really should check it out. A beautiful place of red rock formations and lots of hiking trails and beautiful vistas. Red rock canyon is another great place to visit while in the Vegas area! After all Vegas is not all about the strip! 😃

We stayed at the Las Vegas Blvd resort in NOvember. Little late getting it on here. This has to be the best Resort. Pools were going and nothing down for repairs. Had a great room. Got a little cold going into the end of the week. Terribles is no longer there a new casino there now. The check in was great no problems. Bought tickets for a show called the DREAM. If you haven't seen this show don't miss it next time your there. It was just fantastic and you can not get a bad seat.The gal at the desk was very helpful. A good one to keep around. Rented a car from the resort with no problems. We will be back.Always a good time. If you haven't been out to Sam's Town you should go. Nice casino and the have a water show that's inside. Always have to go watch it.A little park inside all around the water show. All in all no problems at this resort again and will be returning later this year........bob

I just stayed at the resort from Sept 23-27 2013 and the lazy river pool is still down.I would say you will still have a great time other pools that are open. The kids seemed to be having big big fun. I would say keep your plans to come.If it's open by the time of your stay then that will add to you and your kids fun.The construction had zero impact on my stay this time,we had a great time. Hope you and your family have a good time too.

Stayed at the resort the first week of June with 2 other couples that were not owners. This was the second time we stayed there and the first time was much better. The best thing this time was the lazy river. You have to go to 2 different desks just to get checked in. When we got there the last thing I wanted to do was sign up for some owner education...all I wanted to do was get to the room. When we got to the room the beds in the 3rd bedroom were not put together as requested, had to have housekeeping put them together. We went to unload the coolers and put things in the freezer and the ice maker was "hanging" off the side of the fridge, which by the way was the smallest fridge I have seen in any of the resorts. The opening for it was a lot larger than the fridge and the cupboards looked like they should be in a mobile home. We called the front desk about the ice maker and they sent maintenance up to check it...said it had to be replaced. It never happened while we were there. They said we could get ice brought to us when we needed it...we called for ice the second time and they sent another maintenance person up again and he looked at it. He moved the fridge out and shut off the water to it. While he was there we started fixing dinner and the big burner on the stove was not working so he had to fix that as well. The last time I called for ice they said they did not have anyone that could bring it to the room but would send maintenance up again...seriously? There was no communication at all. I went to the gift shop to get the ice myself. They were to call the gift shop and let them know, but by the time I got there they hadn't.
The handle on the sliding door in the living room was put on backwards so there was not much room to grab it with and several broken and bent back fingernails. It was definitely not the vacation I was hoping for. I do not think our friends were impressed with the room at all which is to bad since they have gone with us on vacation to several other resorts and were thinking of buying.
The worst of all my husband and I were in the lazy river one night and stepped on a chicken leg bone. We looked around and found another one. We gave them to the lifeguard and needless to say we got out of the river.

I'm now staying at the resort, my check-in is not welcoming at all, clerk was a little rude and not very welcoming. he go an attitude problem and kinda rude, but the rest of employee is very helpful and informative. My only complain is that the carpet is dirty, I have babies crawling and their leg got so dirty. I have a 3 bedroom penthouse and its so bare, the decor is not like the other places I've been. the living furniture is not appropriate with the space. i thought I'm suppose to have a murphy bed but its not. I would like to know also when was the carpet shampooed last. This is a family reunion and wedding anniversary celebration, so I'm hoping that it'll get better.

We went to the Blvd for Spring break with our 6 year old, our 3 year old twins, and my 75 year old grandmother. I had done A LOT of research before going. Here's what I can offer. The resort is nice, and clean, the room was in working order except the safe which just needed new batteries. The 3 bedroom was very large, and the kids had room to run around and play tag. We used the heck out of the kitchen and the washer/dryer. The walls were thin, but not so much inside the actual unit, but more like we could hear the people at the pool having a good time. The weather was cold, windy and wet, the first couple of days so we made use of the rec room with the ping pong table, pool table, and video games, and again just more space to run around. When the weather improved, we really liked the playground, and used all three pools. We did not have to rent the inner tubes, and the pool towels just needed to be check out and in, in the same day (although I think it'd have been ok if we turned them in the next day.) My poor northwesterner son couldn't handle the dry weather, and got countless bloody noses. We were very grateful for the linen exchange that was open every day. I used the gym, once and found it appropriate for my needs. They sell Starbucks drinks in the market, and they are ok (Hey I'm from Seattle, and am particular). I also visited the spa for a massage package, and although the service was great, and I felt better afterwards, it was a little akward. I had a sugar scrub, and needed to shower before the massage. The shower was in the same room as the massage tables, so I'm there showering as my male massage provider is there setting up the table. He respected my privacy, but still! The shuttle service changed right as we got there, so hopefully it will be an improved system, but it was a little iffy for a while as they worked out the "bugs". It now runs continually which means about every 40min or so, and makes a stop at the outlet mall before getting to the Monte Carlo. We had rented a scooter from Yellowscooters.com for my grandmother, and only one of the shuttles is wheelchair accessible. That meant that we could have been waiting 80-90 minutes if we didn't time it right. The front desk had a good handle on which shuttle was due next, and that helped. By the end of the week, we were all riding the RTC city bus. The drivers were mostly helpful, and for $5.00 for able bodied adults you could ride for 24 hours. That pass includes all the RTC, and Deuce buses on the strip too. We wasted money buying a monorail pass, and I do not recommend that. The monorail is at the back of the casinos it serves, and that is a long walk for anyone. The RTC was a straight shot to Southpoint Casino. The Silverton was two buses with a transfer at the transfer center (indoors with A/C, restrooms, and snacks). Taking the bus to the strip would have required a transfer too, and there is an automated voice on the bus telling you when to get off to get to the strip the fastest. We ate at GeeBees a few times. We were told that kids were not allowed, so we mostly did carry out, until we learned that kids were allowed. We went there for one last breakfast, and Cristobal provided the best service to my kids that they've ever gotten. The food was really good, and one plate of food fed all three of my boys. We had family join us and they stayed in a studio. That too was very large, and my guests only had good things to say about their room. I saved on a HK token, by changing the linens myself and was able to have my step mom stay in the room the first part of the week, and my cousin for the latter part of the week. All in all the trip was great and my only complaint is the transportation all around Vegas. There is only one shuttle company that serves Worldmark from the airport, so that was a little hassle. The total time to get anywhere in Vegas is just daunting. I'd rent a car next time if able, but would still have long walks from the parking garages at the casinos. One last note, I did discover that there are quite a few urgent cares around Worldmark, that were it not for a doctor friend we would have had to use.

Hi everyone.

We have never stayed at any of the Las Vegas resorts, but we're planning to go to Vegas next summer (2014). Can anyone tell me which of the three resorts is the nicest or what the pros and cons of each is? I really appreciate any insight.

Nice post UK1981. I too have been going to this resort since before they finished construction on the 2 end bldgs with their accompanying pools. I agree with your comments about the wear & tear and I personally have always been satisfied with the quality and cleanliness of my unit. They have really stepped up parking security in the past several years. For many years the entry guard house was completely unmanned, but as you said, with the downturn in the Vegas economy more vigilance is necessary, sadly. I'm going back to this resort next month for March Madness!

I have stayed at this resort at least 6 times over the past 5 yrs and have also booked rooms for use by other family members. I have stayed in various size units: 1 bdrm, 2 bdrm penthouse and 3 bdrm standard size. The Staff has always been friendly and helpful and my experiences have always been positive.

My most recent stay was last Sunday, Feb 10, in a 1 bdrm unit on bonus time. The unit was immaculately clean and quite large for 1 bdrm: pull out murphy bed and a kitchen larger than many small apartments. Another person could have easily slept on the couch quite comfortably. The room had been upgraded with a new 32" flat screen above the fireplace. I appreciate the easy access from underground parking with a very short walk to the elevator and directly to our room. Total cost around $75. Plus they allowed me to check in at 2:00 - fully 2 hrs earlier than the stated 4 pm check in!

I was in Vegas to attend a rock concert at the Hard Rock Hotel. The cheapest room at the Hardrock that Sunday night was $100 plus resort fees and bed tax: total about $140. No refrigerator or food prep in hotel room. Probably 1/2 the size of a WM 1 bdrm. Plus you have to walk about 200 yds through the hotel to get to your room and put up with the horrendous smoky casino/lobby area. Totally inconvenient compared to the Worldmark.

Yes this resort is 15 minutes from the "action" of the Strip proper. However, it is only about 5 minutes east of Southpointe Casino and 10 minutes east of the M Casino, which has has one of the best buffets in Vegas. I highly recommend this resort for those who prefer to enjoy a little peace and quiet with their Vegas experience. I personally can only take so much of the Strip madness!

I was at the resort Jan 19-21 and I was pleased. The staff was nice and cheerful. The room was comfortable and met my expectations as I was just there to spend time with my niece for a quick getaway. The resort is about 4.5 miles from the strip and I would suggest staying here if you have children and not interested in being involved with the Vegas nightlife.
The shuttle was a nice addition because we didn't have a car and besides paying for a cab it was the only way to get to the strip. However, on the weekends the shuttle should run a couple of hours later. The weekend was relaxing with the exception of the pressure to upgrade. I have only been to one of these sales pitches before and didn't realize that this is what they asked me to attend when I was told "we have a buffet breakfast at 10:30am tomorrow, would you like to come and bring all your guest". Overall, I was happy with everything about the resort.

We stayed here one night. As far as location, I thought it was too far from the action. I like peace and quiet, but if you are looking for a Vegas experience you won't find it here. There are no views. I am not sure where the other WM resorts are in Vegas, but look into those if you want to be closer to "The Strip". It is not walking distance to anything worth walking to. This resort is huge for WM standards, I think only Indio is bigger. The rooms were typical WM quality, thin walls. The lazy river was heated to a very warm 90 degrees in November. Kudos to this resort for warming it to a decent temperature for people to truly enjoy, unlike other WM resorts.

I am a bit confused on which resort in Las Vegas is best Tropicana or Las Vegas Boulevard -

Which one did people feel the beds were to hard?

Which one was the upkeep quite poor.

Any other tiops for travleing there over New years week would be appreciated.

Came in at 9:30pm, which meant that the welcome desk was closed. The front desk told me I didn't need the parking tag that evening. That I could wait until the next day. Because we read on the blog the high pressure techiniques we decided to avoid it. We unplugged our phones and never got a parking tag. We loved the lazy river, it was very relaxing after a long day of aching feet from walking the strip.
I want to give kudos to the lifeguards. There was a group of "rowdy" owners in the pool. They were hiding their beer cans inside their inner tubes. One man was told by the lifeguard to place his beer on the side of the pool. He complained and gave the lifeguard a hard time. The lifeguard was 30 years younger than the man he was asking to remove his beer. These lifeguards should not have to deal with this.

We were there last week 8/24-26. We had a great time in vegas, the resort was clean, quiet and friendly. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was a nice size and lazy river was relaxing. Some issues: The rooms show wear and tear. The main TV did not work, the bathroom/bedroom doors did not shut. They needed to sanded down by housekeeping. The lazy river was relaxing, but not as big as the Indio lazy river. There was no energy at the resort. The pool was practically empty and it closed down at 10pm. When we got back from the strip it would have been nice to take quick dip after spending the day walking in the over 110 degree temperatures. The shuttle bus was convienant, however there were several complaints about the lack of space in the buses. We were lucky and caught the last shuttle bus at 12:30am. Some owners that did not make it had been waiting prior to the 11:30pm shuttle. The shuttle driver had to make a special trip to pick up the remaining group. A couple of suggestions for the resort: 1) Free Internet access (we already pay enough in dues, we should not have to pay high access cost; 2) Expanded shuttle service on the weekends. Last pick ups should run until at least 1:30 or 2am. 3) Live band and/or organized pool events during the day.
