    Sunset Station has entered into the fray for our next trip.
    Your thoughts.

    Up against Suncoast, South Point and the Orleans.

    I have stayed at all the above properties with the exception of the Suncoast. I have comped rooms there, but have never pulled the trigger on a stay.

    IMHO all the places are good options, and I would gladly stay at any of them. The all have their pros and cons.

    Out of your group I would probably rank it third or fourth, but they all are a photo finish.

    Sunset Station
    pros- nice big pool, good video poker, pretty casino, decent rooms, some cheapfood specials and a good/inexpensive buffet, food court, right next to the Galleria Mall, Walmart, and some decent restaurants.
    cons- location is far from other "destination" locations, no hot tub at the pool, none of their restaurants are great, Boarding Pass players club is weak iMhO, expensive resort fee, looooooong walk to rooms

    Suncoast
    pros- Big rooms, location is far from strip but there is a lot close by (restaurants/other casinos), great golf in every direction, B_Connected has liberal future offers, good ACG coupons, simple but nice pool, a reasonable resort fee
    cons- far from the strip if that matters, restaurants could be better but are adequate

    South Point
    pros- Nice pool (very similar to the Orleans), good cash back at slot club, big nice rooms, good restaurants, horse arena, coupons at check in, good separate race and sports books
    cons- new resort fee is pricey, on Las Vegas Blvd but a long way to Mandalay Bay, service is hit and miss, future offers are slim to none for low rollers

    Orleans
    pros- great location with shuttle to strip, good pool, nice views from many rooms, decent food, good future offers from B-Connected, lots of extras including an arena with it's own hockey team
    cons- some rooms are dated

    I stayed at both Suncoast and Sunset on our last trip. I would say I preferred Sunset as the better place to stay in terms of food choices and casino. The rooms were better at Suncoast and the resort fee at Sunset is almost 33% of the room cost. I know Suncoast was offering room rates starting at $34 with free wi-fi, no resort fee, and comped breakfast buffet. If that is still available it is an awesome deal. Both resorts are equally far away from the strip.

    I put the same amount of play in at both casinos. Both comped my rooms on checkout but only B-Connected has given me any offers for future visits. I did about 5k of coin in on a mix of video poker and slots per day which got me 3 nights, 50 F&B, and 30 Free Play from Boyd.

    Will be trying out the Orleans on my next trip as the comp offer I got from Suncoast allowed me to stay at any of their properties outside the downtown area.
