"At the last minute I decided to get away for a few days. Las Vegas is not too far, so it was the destination of choice. I contacted Kim and she responded quickly to my inquiry. She answered the few questions I had quickly as well. Check in was smooth. Upon entering the room a very foul odor assaulted me. It was clear somebody prior had smoked, the housekeeping service left two air fresheners behind to mask it, but it was certainly there. I notified Kim immediately via email. A week later she has not responded to that concern. The room smelled horrible the 3 nights I was there, the apple cinnamon air fresheners placed there did not help. The furnishings look as though it's time to start thinking of replacement, the tv in the bathroom was removed prior to my arrival, so don't plan on utilizing that.
The hotel does take your credit card and places a hold of $300 on it, or they will take a debit card and charge $300 and refund it back in a few days, I hate when people leave this information out, it has made a difference in the past on my choice of where to stay. Kim did provide this information after I had booked. Because of this I thought room charging would be okay. The first day when attempting to charge something back to my room (so that I can get Mlife credit....more on that in a minute) I was told there was a "red flag" on my account and I could not post charges to the room. That did get cleared up the next day. I am still trying to get credit from Mlife for the items charged to the room though. So, if you are an Mlife member expecting to use your stay to maintain your status, know that it may take some work. I still don't have that sorted out.
All that being said, I enjoyed the 3 nights in this condo. It suited exactly why I wanted to get away. Having a kitchen was nice, the full size fridge was great. There is a Walgreens within walking distance for light food options as well as an ABC store. I do wish there were some dish towels in the kitchen, but paper towels are provided. I used the Tower 3 pool each day, including a cabana rental those days. That pool seemed to be the least active, which was perfect for me, I wasn't there to party.
I've seen complaints about the distance to the MGM. It is a very short walk with moving sidewalks. If this distance is an issue, Vegas isn't a destination to consider.
I would return to this condo knowing what to expect."
