There was no line at check in. I found this surprising because I arrived during CES, one of the busiest times of the year. Staff were friendly and quick, although they neglected to mention the $9.99 resort fee as my credit card was swiped. While I knew about the charge in advance, I could see disputes arising with uninformed guests if this is standard procedure. I made my way across the casino floor towards the elevators. Table minimums were low; I spotted $5 blackjack and 25-cent roulette.
The sixth floor hallway appeared in order, nothing dirty or damaged. I entered my room and was immediately surprised with the size of the double vanity bathroom. The marble counters and gold fixtures were tasteful, but felt a bit dated. The toilet and shower were separated in their own room, along with a phone that I didnít dare touch. I found the shower appointed with a spacious tub, curved shower bar, and attractive tile. If Suncoast had gone the extra mile and installed a better showerhead, this would have been one of the nicest standard bathrooms in Vegas.
I found the remainder of the room equally impressive. Floor-to-ceiling windows that spanned the width of the room grabbed my attention as they revealed a beautiful view of the pool, golf course, and mountains beyond. The pool was closed for the season, yet the view alone was enough to make me want to return this summer.
While the roomís furnishings didnít stand out in any manner, all appeared clean and were in fine condition. The queen beds were comfortable and were positioned alongside a reclined chair and lamp, all across from a flat screen TV. The red and brown colors throughout the room reminded me of Harrahís, although this room was maintained better than any room I have seen in a Caesars property.
Lamps in the room didnít contain the built-in power outlets many newer hotels offer. Instead, both the desk and table beside the window were positioned near wall outlets. Suncoastís fast WiFi service was included in the resort fee.
At 550 square feet, Suncoastís basic rooms are some of the most spacious in the city. With reasonable rates and low table minimums, Suncoast is a great option for those willing to stay off Strip.
