    Hi I received a mailer from GVR for 3 nights free the 2nd week of September.My buddy and I are out there for opening weekend of the NFL and 4 nights are comped at the Rio already (No resort fees but I pay for the wifi anyway every day) Just thinking about the last 4 days of the trip and maybe trying a new place..(11 years with a Rio stay) but we know the Rio will be comped the rest of the time except Saturday night if we decide to just stay there...

    So curious about how the rooms compare to the lowest at the Rio we usually get?How are the lowest tier rooms at GVR? We really just need a room big enough to not trip over luggage with a couch and table and a table and couple chairs for a laptop..

    The offer code I received only shows a King room,will it be a problem to get 2 queens and maybe with a non-comped Saturday night for $69?Is this the same gimmick that Harrah's AC does where 2 queens cost more? Will the $20 trick get the extra bed instead?

    And what is early check-in like on Sunday if we do that date? Games start at 10am any chance of getting a room prior to that or just wait until afternoon?

    I do not see a mini-fridge listed in the room amenities,do they charge a daily fee for one like the Gold Coast ?

    What does the resort fee include and how much is it?

    Any preferred tower/section to try for having never stayed there before?

    Thanks for any insight!! James

    I can answer some of this, though I can't say how it compares to the Rio as I've never stayed at the Rio.

    The GVR rooms in my experience are pretty spacious. My rooms have had a desk and chair plus wingback chair and ottoman. I usually stay in a deluxe king and the photos on their website are accurate to what I've had. From the website for a deluxe double queen: "Approximately 500 sq ft, rooms are done in a European-style d├ęcor. Features an over-stuffed chair and ottoman, an executive writing desk with a high back chair, a fully stocked minibar inside the television armoire, and a Bose sound system." Not sure if there is an extra charge to go from king to queen as I've never stayed in nor needed 2 queens.

    I've never been anywhere near the checkin desk on a Sunday but I've usually been able to check in to my room around noon. Their bell desk is decent and I've never minded leaving my things there and going to enjoy the grounds, or the casino. They do have a decent sportsbook and bar overlooking the sportsbook that has food and drink specials on gameday. One year it was $1 hotdogs from the hotdog cart set up there.

    I've never had nor tried for a mini fridge. I would imagine it's an extra charge.

    According to their website the resort fee is $28.24 (including tax). From Vegas.com: "Green Valley Ranch Resort and Spa has a $24.99 per room, per night resort fee. This fee is not included in your reservation and will be collected by the hotel. The resort fee includes: Wired and wireless high-speed in-room internet. Unlimited local and 800 calls. Fitness center access. Daily local newspaper. Shoe shine service. Airport shuttle service. (and strip to mandalay too) Resort fee listed does not include tax."

    I'm partial to the West tower as I think the rooms there are nicer.

    GVR is our home casino and we love it. Comped rooms are usually not charged a resort fee but as you know could change day by day. Spacious rooms and would imagine the charge for 2 queens would be nominal. No refrigerator but free safe. A beautiful
    property although a locals casino and tends to cater to a somewhat older crowd. The sportsbook is lively during game times and usually they have good promotions, Good food options plus has a shopping complex on the property with lots of
    restaurant choices. look at the rate calendar for your dates and it will give you an idea as to how booked they are. Our first stop is always the sportsbook bar to play $ vp. Call the marketing # on your offer and they will answer your questions. We
    also prefer west tower as is it closer to the casino.
