    So, the journey has begun prematurely but details on this to come. In the meantime, I have some new old news.

    Everyone here who has read my stuff knows I was a big IP fan. I would readily choose staying at IP over Wynn because I kind of like the kitschy (sp) 80s and 70s decor. But this stay has made me extraordinarily disenchanted....in fact, there are no words for this disgrace :vomit:

    I do not know if it's because of the construction but I certainly deserve a long break from this place.

    I have been staying at Imperial Palace for 2 years for at least 6 times, and I have never had a problem with cleanliness. But on this visit, I found hairs in the tub, under the sink, and a mildewy shower curtain that was crusty on the bottom--read: not changed! yikes! Please see exhibit A and B.

    [​IMG]
    Exhibit A: dirty crusty shower curtain

    [​IMG]
    Exhibit B: hairs all over the floor (this is only 1/100th of the disgrace)

    I had to lug all of my stuff back to the front desk, taking major time from my visit. I spoke to Cody Thull at the Quad and he comped one out of two nights but I asked him to provide a comp for a future stay or comped food at other properties, but he told me that he is not paying for me to stay at the resort. He was fairly rude to me. Was I being greedy?

    When I went to a SECOND room, I found some of the same issues including hairs under the sink, unmopped floor, etc, except I found hairs on the ceiling! Exhibit C!!! This just about did it.

    [​IMG]
    Exhibit C: hair near the ceiling around the tub (how the heck did it get up there? GROSSS!)


    I called front desk to voice my concerns and waited for 30 minutes with no one coming to the phone, so I went back downstairs again with all of my stuff. And the manager refused to see me.

    I ended up opting for a thorough cleanse of the bathroom which I will wait to see, and I know most would not accept further stay, truly shame on me.

    I would like the world to know that I have joined the dark side: Quad sucks.

    I always assumed the pubes at IP were structural.

    Me too. I stayed once and never will again. Unless, they magically turn that place into an actual Imperial Palace. But since they are no longer calling it that, I am not getting my hopes up.

    Why doesn't Harrah's just demolish it and build a brand new casino there? It has a great location -- one of the best on the strip! Why try to polish a turd??

    Why are you surprised? 99 out of 100 reviews and comments will tell you that the IP is a shithole. The other 1 out of 100 will give it glowing reviews because they're from East Bumblefk and they got the "room" for free and the beers are cheap. Plain and simple, the place is a dump. They can change the name but the place is still GROSS and NASTY. You ever hear the term "You can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig"? That's the IP. Thay can change the name and build a new front entrance but it is still a dump ghetto motel. The place should be picked up and moved to North Las Vegas where it belongs.

    Wait until you find the bed bugs and used condoms under the bed.

    When you pay a Motel 6 type rate, you'll get a Motel 6 type room

    I was going to add, this is how it was when I stayed at IP... 10+ years ago. I can't imagine it's gotten any better in time :)

    Meh, the place is a dump. Everyone knows that. A few hairs and some dirt on a shower curtain at the IP is par for the course. Getting a free night for your 'trouble' is more than generous.

    Yes. And pushy.

    Sorry, as a business owner, I hate when a customer demands a specific remedy. The way it has always worked is that the shop keeper proposes the solution. If you deem it not enough, you hem and haw, conveying the fact that this won't make you happy. Then the shop keeper either ups the proposal or apologizes that "this is all we will be able to do for you."

    I usually quickly discount the people that say, "This was the problem we had and now you are going to do THIS for us." Oops, sorry, I will not. See ya.

    Too bad they failed you though.

    They are spending tons of money on the place, except for the most important part - the guest rooms. As a visitor and guest, 1/3 of my time would be spent in the room. Not the exterior walls, not the ferris wheel, not their newest shopping concept. Another major portion of my time would be in the casino and showroom, neither of which is being touched. But they will be renovating the rooms and casino of Bill's, both of which are perfectly fine. :nono:
    Am I missing something here?

    Yep those pics are gross but I've seen worse. We stayed at Flamingo in November of 2011 and found a used sanitary pad under the bed. :vomit:

    Stayed there once and the room was poor, with a view of a wall. The pool was not even worth going to but the casino was actually kind of fun. Hope the remodel goes well but I am skeptical.

    Yeah I think it's time for you to move on. Who knows you may find another property that you fall in love with.
    I used to love Luxor. Stayed there 5 times in a row between 2006 & 2007. I didn't have any cleanliness issues
    but after the renovations the charm and my lucky streak ran out. Now days I hold no allegiance to anyone.
    I'm stuck wandering up and down the Strip from trip to trip. But if I had to chose a place I think it would be Wynn.
    The nastiest room I ever stayed in was in Atl City in Bally's Claridge Tower. After that I said no comped room is worth this!

    Sorry for your troubles.
