Just a hop, skip and a jump from the striking rock formations and solitude of Red Rock Canyon and 10 miles from the chaos of the Las Vegas Strip, the Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa is the perfect getaway for those who like their sin served au naturel. You can test your luck at the slots and your bluff at the poker table in the megalarge casino, get an exquisite massage in treatment suites that appear to float on water and dine at restaurants comparable to the hot downtown names. But should you also crave a real outdoor adventure, you’ll find an authentic (not manmade) back-to-nature experience here that other Vegas hotels can’t match. And then there are the rooms and suites themselves. All are glossy, modern affairs with dark chocolatey walls set against crisp white bedding and marble bathrooms with deep-soak tubs, lighted makeup mirrors and 15-inch flatscreen TVs.
In the Area
Arrange through the resort’s Adventure Spa to saddle up before dawn one morning for a ride through the Red Rock Canyon. You’ll be on your horse in time for the rising sun to set the surrounding cliffs ablaze. Afternoon rides are equally gorgeous, and include a cowboy dinner served fireside at the end. The rapids are mild, but the scenery is beyond wild when you kayak the Colorado River through the Black Canyon. The guided daytrip starts at the base of the Hoover Dam and ends at Willow Beach, a few miles downstream. Along the way you’ll get to stop and soak in natural hot springs. Take the kids along on a half-day trip to a local mine that is rumored to be haunted. You’ll visit three shafts and learn the story behind gold mining here. After the mine you’ll hit the water, for an easy paddle downstream. Red Rock Canyon is the USA’s fifth-most-popular rock climbing destination, and offers routes suitable to all levels. If you’ve never climbed before, this is a great place to try it out; if you’re an expert, there are a number of technical multi-pitch routes. Check with the Adventure Spa for info and guided trips. They even have an indoor climbing gym.
How to Get There
We needed to attend a 100th birthday & their hotel was full. We tried the Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa and were pleasantly surprised. We got an upgraded room. It was large, clean and well-equipped. The facility was clear and spacious. Very little "smoke" in the casino (good ventilation system). LOTS of pools/whirlpools (17). Beautiful. Would stay there again! The only negative was that before 8am there is only 1 cafe serving food & the line was long. We fixed that by going back to our lovely room & ordering room service and the food arrived in less than 30 minutes!!! Great service!!
This place is beautiful from the moment you walk in and the customer service is excellent. We arrived around noon and Steven checked us in, and we were able to get into both of our rooms. Plus he found adjoining rooms for us overlooking the pool and canyon which is just what we wanted. He gave us all the info we needed since we were first time guests. Our rooms were spacious and the bathroom was beautiful. It had a tv too. No problem fitting our family of four in a two queen bed room. There a small couch by the window which technically is big enough for a kid to sleep on if need be. My in laws had a king room next to us which was equally amazing.
The hotel, grounds, pool area and casino are clean with beautiful features and the casino does not wreak of smoke. There were plenty of penny slots for me and $5 and $10 min tables for my husband. There is a food court for a quick bite or for the kids when they are visiting the arcade, bowling or movies. The movie broke when my kids went to see Ant Man and the Wasp, but they were invited to the next showing plus they were given movie passes for another time that can be used at any Regal.
We enjoyed the cafe and Lucille’s. Yard House was really crowded but it was a Friday night. We ate at the pool one day, and I had an amazing jerk chicken sandwich. The cocktails were good too. We rented a cabana which was the best cabana experience we have ever had! It included some non alcoholic beverages, snacks and a fresh fruit platter. The service was wonderful! Michelle took care of us and I regret that I don’t remember the name of the other server that took over for her. But they were both so attentive, helpful and friendly. The cabana had a tv, a safe, couch, lounge chairs, table with chairs and more. Plus there was a small pool right in front, but we could walk over to the big pool which was close by if we wanted to. Restrooms were close too. And I brought a small float for the pool without issue. No outside food or drinks at the pool - FYI.
My only disappointment (minor) was that there were no souvenirs or gifts for children in any of the gift shops. My niece brought her 2 yr old son for a visit and we ended up walking to the mall to buy him something since it was his birthday. They did have arm floated for purchase at the pool but he was too little for those and we were looking for something clothing or toy related.
As a person who lives near Vegas and gets to visit a lot, this place "looks" pretty. The pool is beautiful and there is enough expensive amenities to keep you busy, but some of the service we received was meh. When we opted to have our room serviced, the maid only left 2 towels, tons of shampoo yet only one conditioner (odd ratio), way too much soap (6 bars), and too much lotion. It was confusing because the maid seemed not to not see ALL of the luggage in our room when making a choice to leave so few towels. We could get over that. We gamble every time we go to Vegas. Red Rock seemed extra unwilling to pay out on machines. We were there for 3 days, and not once did I see someone win, unlike many of the other casinos that I've been to. Oh well, I guess. You take a chance when gambling of course, but not seeing anyone win was off putting. It was weird not hearing people yelling with excitement. The worst thing that we experienced was service at their Grand Cafe. There was ZERO sense of urgency. Took the hostess forever to help bus a table. The server was slow. I'm certain that she forgot to place our order since the party next to us got their food before us. She never verbalized to us that our food would be out. We actually left after a half hour because the service was so slow (we needed to check out) and no one bothered to come apologize for the long wait for food. The restaurant was not full. Anyway, I'm a big fan of giving good reviews, but this place is too expensive to be giving crappy service, too tight on the machines, and mediocre maid service. To be honest, I've stayed here before and had a great time. It's too bad that things have gone down hill...somewhat. All I'm saying is that if you're expecting high end service, you may not get it. Bummer.
we stayed here 2 nights mile at Vegas. It's right across the street from the Vegas practice Arena which we were able to go ice skating at. This hotel is so pretty the view from our room of the canyon was just lovely the pool was so nice it's really pretty and there's so many of them so it's not just full of a ton of kids. The casino looks so much nicer than the casinos down on the Strip though they did smell a little bit smokier than some of those. Don't we ate at the buffet there which was really good. The only downside was the wife I was terrible even when we got the upgraded Wi-Fi. That really was a big downside for us as my husband is a vlogger.
We went to Red Rock and it’s so nice and QUIET compared to the hotels on the strip. Very clean and we had amazing view! They offer pool, spa, casino, movies and bowling. We will definitely be back! We loved the pool!!
