Hello!
We have stayed at both the Las Vegas Blvd and Tropicana resorts. We like both depends on what kind of trip we are wanting. If we are looking for a very quiet, laid back, relaxing trip then we stay at the Tropicana resort. If we are wanting a more active trip than we prefer the Blvd resort. Something that may help, the Tropicana Resort was originally a condo complex that was converted to a timeshare. The Blvd property was built as a timeshare resort from the ground up. We do really love both properties. We have never stayed at or driven by the Spencer Street resort.

Hope this helps

Gene

Hands down it's the Blvd location. The staff is great from the bus drivers to the people working the pools. The room are among the best in the system. I like that it's away from the strip but just a short drive away by car,Uber or bus.

Went to Las Vegas Boulevard for a few days. To answer the post below, the lazy river is heated but I am not sure about the pools, may be worth a call. All pools, hot tubs and lazy river were open. Property currently has construction in the lobby; follow the signs to the check in. This was our first time here and we stayed in a 1 bedroom, building #5. The property has much to offer and is located about 5-6 miles south of the strip – there is a shuttle to the strip.

We were familiar with the strip so our intent was to venture elsewhere on this trip. South Point is easy to get to and the closest casino - dropped off my wife and picked her up later. Silverton Casino was an easy stop just over the freeway and has an attached Bass Pro Shop. Red Rock Casino is about a 15 min drive on I-215 west and offers several dining options, a movie theater, bowling alley, a kids’ zone (arcade) and is located next to a mall. There are outlet stores about a mile to the north with many shopping and restaurant options. Smith’s grocery store is just to the north, recommend for food items.

The room was nice overall; however, you could hear significant noise from the hallway – conversations, children running, maintenance/housekeeping. The common BBQ area has no lighting – some of the grills had an attached light on the handle – some were missing? The first BBQ area I went to had 3 grills – one grill did not have briquettes, one grill did not light, and the fire of one came outside the grill and started burning the controls. The BBQ concerns were reported to management. With darkness coming around 5:00 pm the walkways seemed dark without lighting, a bit of a safety hazard with uneven pavement. Also, during the hours of darkness be careful driving around the property as maintenance personnel are on golf carts without lights and sometimes hard to see.

Overall the trip was relaxing, there are many amenities at the resort, and the location is a good jump off point to visit the strip or exploring the area.

We got back from our trip out to Las vegas resort. Great check-in. Thanks to Grace for getting us show tickets and a car.
Room was super no problems. Some construction going on at the check in but worked out just great. Want a good buffet and reasonable price
go to SOUTH POINT casino. Out the front lot of the casino and make a right. Down about a mile or so. Rodeo time and lots of
cowboys. Don't take the taxis. Use the shuttle. Firsts time i ever got ripped off from a cab. Weather was great and so was
the magic show. Go see Max. He won America GOT TALENT. Well worth the money.

Yes, there is dishwasher powder under the sink as well as liquid dish soap. If you run out, get more from the front desk.

Have been at Boulevard for almost a week now with my best friend and our 5 teenagers (ages 13 to 17). I booked a 3 bedroom a year out and checked in at 4:30 pm and still got a room with very limited view of the pool...but that's okay. We are in building 6 (next to the lobby) and the room is great with a very large deck (table with 4 chairs and small table with 2 chairs). There is a large lazy river, large activity pool and 2 smaller pools (I would not call them small). We went to the pools by 10 am each day and never had a problem getting chairs or cabanas. There is a market in between the lazy river and activity pool that has everything you might need - we went daily for Starbucks and Hawaiian shave ice! The shuttle leaves every hour to the strip (only to Monte Carlo but there is a tram that will take you all the way down to the Bellagio)...our favorite driver was Jack! They have free bottles of water and give great tips (like download the app Travel Zoo for discounts on shows/food). When we didn't use the shuttle we used Uber and it was perfect. I ordered groceries from the Von's website and they were delivered to our room for free - very convenient and will definitely do this again. Check in was very slick - I was the only person in the lobby at 4:30 pm - and didn't even get asked about a presentation (probably because my husband wasn't here). Lobby staff was great to deal with. We will absolutely be back!!

Random question regarding dishwashers at this location - is dishwashing powder (or tablets) provided? Always see laundry powder referenced but no mention of dishwashing supplies. TIA!

Been here for 18 hours and I'm pretty sure Worldmark has wasted at least 3 hours of our time. Ridiculously understaffed and most don't seem to be interested in being accommodating. Cancelled our "owner update". This place seems to all about sales and very little service for existing customers. Gorgio was nice though.

Well we were out there in May and had a great time. Had a 3bdrm Bldg 4 and was plenty of room for the six of us. Grace down at the desk was just a great help with all our stuff. Booked 2 shows in advanced and she had everything waiting for us. Easy check in and very friendly and helpful Stayed out here many times and never had a problem. The volcano at the mirage was very good as usual. Went to see the tigers and garden but not much of a garden. 2 lions sleeping 2 white tigers walking around and 1 black leopard. Really not worth the money. Roller coster above New York was fun. Went to see KA. Was a very good show. If you haven't been down to Freemont street downtown you have to go. We had a blast. Very interesting with all the different entertainment going on and people using the zip lines above you. And the light show was great as always. Saw the aquarium and the porpoises. Very enjoyable. BBq outside on the patio overlooking the pool area. Nice breeze and great weather. Rented a van thru the resort and was fast and easy. The resort is a ways down from the strip but nice and quiet and really didn't mind the drive.The BEST resort on the strip. Will be going back in November

Well I stayed in a 2bedroom penthouse and a reg 2bedroom. The penthouse had nicer bathrooms with the master having a jetted tub and it was bigger. The 2nd had a bigger bathroom the the reg had as well. I would give the resort a call because they are one of the best in the Worldmark system.

Well I think you can't beat the blvd location as far as class and style. As a owner I would almost never considered any where else. Other than the very very very bad checkin experience,it's the best. For someone who wants to be on the strip, it my not be for you. The resort has a shuttle every 30 of 40 minutes I think? I came without a car and spent a lot of time on the strip. We used the shuttle for shopping and for fun trips to the strip.

The resort is one of the best Worldmark you're gonna stay at hands down. The rooms, the pools and the overall staff is among the top 5. You can shop for food and more with a short walk to a shopping center. There's also some nice restaurant nearby if you don't want to cook or hit the strip.

That my take for what it's worth.
Hope they have a great stay.

My son and daughter are planning a trip down to Vegas in the spring, this will be the first trip for both of them, and they would like to either stay at the Worldmark on the Blvd or on Spencer, I haven't stayed in either so I'm hoping to get some advice about which would be a better fit for their trip.
They want access to the strip, would appreciate a shuttle and/or access to public transportation, but don't mind taking a taxi when they have to. They have a few activities/restaurants/shows they want to do/see, but other than that, they're pretty flexible, so no ridge schedule or events they need to be at. They aren't too concerned with noise or little kids or anything like that. Having access to a hot tub, to rest weary feet, would be great, especially if the resort has more than one, even better.
Mainly they're looking for an easy place to rest, relax, and it won't cost them tons of $$ when they have to take a taxi to and from.
Any help/advice/suggestions are greatly appreciated! I've only been once, but it was years ago, and we stayed at the Luxor, so I'm not much help to them, unfortunately!

My daughter is there now and went to a sales presentation. She was told that if she didn't buy now she would never be able to buy an ownership like mine. No Travelshare, no RCI etc. That all she could get was a 40 year lease. I called Worldmark and was told that is not the case. Worldmark is the same and our children will be able to buy just as we have.

The product they were apparently selling is a Wyndham Vacation Ownership.

My problem is it was represented to her as WorldMark and this was all that was available to her now. Has anyone else had an experience like this?

You definitely want to stay at the Las Vegas Blvd resort if you are bringing children. They have 3 large pools plus a lazy river pool, basketball court and a huge game room.

The Red Rock Resort/Casino is quite far from the resort; however, if there is no traffic it is an easy drive once you're on the freeway. Maybe 20 minutes tops. I find the drive to Red Rock much less stressful than driving to the Strip casinos, even though the Strip is much closer.

The Tropicana Resort has smaller rooms and not much for kids to do. Although it is closer mileage-wise than Las Vegas Blvd, you will be driving through dozens of streetlights & intersections the whole length of Charleston to get to Red Rock.

Call the resort directly. They can tell you if they'll accept deliveries for guests and what address to use.

The resort provides a shuttle to/from the resort. Is there a charge for that shuttle?

Any ideas on how much a taxi costs to the strip? How about to Southtown Casino just a few miles from the resort?

From the airport, are we better taking a shuttle or a taxi? There are two of us.

Trying to decide if staying at this resort, or if the cost of transportation doesn't make it worth it.
