Good overall stay

We did not know what to expect when we arrived at desert rose but I must say we were very pleased. The staff were very helpful, the room was clean and the bed the most comfortable i've ever slept in. If we come back to Vegas its room 1314 for us. Thank you all. Mike and Tracy.

Perfect Vegas Stay for families

I was a little nervous about staying here after looking at the reviews. I thought it was going to be run down and a dump. This place was NOT that. This place was a perfectly comfortable and pleasant place to stay. Basically on the strip, the room was spacious and clean. The front desk staff were clearly tired and not super friendly, but I didn't need that, just wanted a clean and comfortable room for a conference and then out in the evening. I would recommend this place to friends for sure. My room was overlooking the trash, but I kept the blinds closed the whole time, and had a comfortable and quiet night's sleep. If you were overlooking the pool, this place would be top class!

Best stay in Vegas EVER!!!!

I have been going to Vegas for the past 16 years for a trade show and always stayed in Casino Hotels, I had a sales meeting last year in one of the rooms at the Dessert Rose and liked what I had seen. So when booking my trip this year I decided to stay there. All I can say is that I will be returning for the next few years. Clean comfortable rooms Great free WiFi provided by AT&T Great pool area and fitness room Kitchen with full size fridge and all the pots,pans and dishes you need to feel like your at home. We checked in and headed over to a supermarket and avoided all the little expenses like coffee, breakfast and cold bottled by having everything in our room. The pool area was a quiet family friendly area and the entire stay was great we were there for 5 nights and looking to stay a little long next year. The money we saved by being able to dine in a couple of nights will off set the cost of the stay. I can't say enough about how pleased we were with our stay.

Adequate hotel very close to MGM and NY-NY

The hotel was adequate, they don't clean your room or change your sheets even though we were there 8 nights. We're not messy so it was ok I wonder if we stayed 2 weeks if we would have had to sleep on the same sheets. They only take care of their members rooms. They do change towells and give you toiletries if you need them. Daily breakfast was a plus and pretty good. The pool was nice.

Very Family Friendly for Vegas

This was a family vacation for me, this location is south of the strip with very little traffic! The 1 bedroom studio sleeps 4 people very comfortably, the rooms where very very very clean. The breakfast was fair not the best but will do. Cons: nothing really in walking distance so food you will have to drive or go on the strip.

GREAT VALUE

OUR STAY AT THE DESERT ROSE WAS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. THE BREAKFAST BUFFET WAS GREAT A DIFFERENT VARIETY EVERY DAY, HOWEVER IF YOU DID NOT GET THERE EARLY SEATING WAS A BIT MORE DIFFICULT IN FINDING. THE STAFF WAS VERY PLEASANT AND HELPFUL. THE CLEANLINESS WAS AMAZING. THE LOCATION WAS VERY QUIET WHICH WAS A WONDERFUL BREAK FROM THE DOWNTOWN STRIP NOISE. WE WOULD STAY AGAIN AT THE DESERT ROSE.

Perfect for Families

Loved the extra space for the kids. It was safe enough for my 9 and 12 year old to go to the lobby on their own for breakfast. The staff were super friendly and helpful. A walk to the strip so come with comfortable shoes. Free Starbucks coffee and tea in lobby whenever we passed thru. That was really nice!

Could be great if...

Staff was very courteous and even afforded us one of the newly "renovated" rooms. The location is fantastic as it's only a couple of blocks from the strip. This place could be a location where travelers want to come back to with every visit to Las Vegas if the hotel upgraded a couple of things without cutting costs and just making it look good, and made sure that the rooms were totally cleaned once in a while. Cleanliness - We were told our residence had new carpet installed and it looked as if it was new (very nice) - however, our socks turned black from walking on it. I am assuming the carpet was never really cleaned after it was installed. The shower heads need to be cleaned - calcium formation on heads and looked old and dirty but still had great pressure (tons of water coming out). Seems like they don't clean this type of stuff very often at all. We had a "new" flat screen TV in our living room but a tube TV in the bedroom - most others still had the old tube TV in the living room as well. The "new" flat screen already had an entire column of pixels out so it was a little distracting. Channel selection was very poor. They say they will be upgrading to cox in the future. The couch was new and was very nice. Beds - oh the beds - One thing that hotels, resorts, etc. need to have is nice comfortable beds with comfortable pillows. If you think about it, most of the time spent in a hotel room is in the bed sleeping. If you cannot get comfortable in the beds to get a good night sleep chances are you will not stay there again. The bottom line - they have the advantage of being a residence vs. being just a room as well as being in a much better location over other residences in the area (right off of the strip). The staff is great (very understanding and helpful). IF they made sure the rooms were actually clean and if they upgraded certain amenities (especially the beds and TVs), this place would have no trouble filling the rooms (residences). For the current prices I guess its worth staying at the Desert Rose but I would pay more if they upgraded these amenities.
