    My friend is looking to stay at either of these two properties but ask me which rooms are nicer? (The difference in price is only $10) Anyone stay at both places and has an opinion? I have not stayed at either so I don't know other then their respective locations.
    Thanks for any feedback.

    The difference might be more than $10. The Quad has a nightly resort fee and the Casino Royale does not. I stayed at Casino Royale once. Good location, basic clean accomodations. Used to be a Travellodge, I believe.

    I stayed there back in 99 and it was fine for me. Standard room, great location. I had no problems.

    Casino Royale rooms are quite small. However they have been re-modeled to include safes, coffee makers and mini fridges in them. All their rooms are non-smoking if that's a concern.
    Quad rooms are in desperate need of updating and with the current construction, they are hard to get in and out of. Narrow hallways from ck. in to the elevators.
    If you're a member of Casino Royale's reward program you make get a couple of free nights. I give them minimal play and get a 2-3 free night offer quarterly.

    I have stayed at Casino Royale 4 times and The Quad twice (both when it was still IP). I never really had a problem with my room at the IP. Just avoid the rooms that face the parking garage. I think they used to be called garden rooms or something and are now called classic rooms. They're smaller and not as nice(I don't know if IP ever got around to remodeling them).

    Casino Royale isn't bad for the price. The biggest issue I had was that they have one of those older air conditioning systems where you can get heat or cool, but not both. So in the winter it will be set to heat and you can control how warm you want it, but you are not able to switch it to cool. Both times I stayed there in the winter I slept with the windows open since it got too stuffy. Due to the proximity to the strip, it can be a bit loud with the windows open, especially if you're on the first or second level. If you're on the first level you can also count on people walking right by your window. The north facing rooms are a bit more quiet since it faces their parking lot.

    I stayed in a remodeled Casino Royale room and thought it was very good. I'd peg it 3 or 3 1/2 star range.

    I'd peg The Quad standard room as one of the worst rooms I've stayed in Vegas (Hooters and Excalibur being the exceptions). The room had no thermostat, whereas I was able to set my room temp in the remodeled Casino Royale rooms with the wall thermostat.

    Your friend will also be able to check into Casino Royale quickly, vs. the pathetic at times 1-2 hour Quad check in rate.

    If the rates (including IP resort fee) are close to comparable, I would pick Casino Royale without hesitation. Your friend should ask for a room away from the strip to avoid noise.

    we also stayed at casino royale although it was 3 years or so ago and we were very surprised how nice the room was?

    If I am not mistaken don`t they even have a small pool at the back?

    Right now, because of the construction at Quad, i'd pick Royale, especially with the new property upgrades. The Quad is pathetic because of the rooms. However, i just don't see the reason to stay there for $70-$80 per night even with no resort fees. I'm a low roller, i have Caesars booked next month for free, and even with the highest resort fee is comes to $125 for the week. I am permanently comped Sun-Fri at Flamingo, Harrah's, Rio, Quad, and Bally's. You can book the cheapest room on the TR site and then use the $20 tip to upgrade.
    CR is not cheap, you can stay right next door at Harrah's for much cheaper. Even if you don't have a TR card i'm showing $35 per night plus resort fees, so it's still cheaper.

    I stay at casino royale every time I book on the strip. With minimal play you can get 2 free nights every month. They comp good which you can use at Dennys, outback or any of the food court places. $1 bottles of michalob. They also have a pool, exersize room and computer room. It also is not far from the rooms to the casino.
