    I haven't stayed there in years but used to enjoy it. I thought their rooms were good and they had friendly dealers. Anyone have any recent experience with this resort? I'm heading to Vegas tomorrow night (last minute for sure) and am struggling to decide where to stay.

    5 of my last 6 trips have been to TI. The most recent was in April of this year. It's definitely not the Taj Mahal, but it's a great "middle of the road" hotel. The dining selections are nothing to write home about, but the easy access to several adjoining properties pretty much negates that. I like the small footprint and the very easily accessed parking garage too. Oh yeah, they opened a CVS there as well. You don't even have to go outside, the entrance is inside the casino, very handy.

    We're not big gamblers or drinkers, so don't have much advice along those lines. We always rent a suite, so can't comment on the standard rooms, never been in one.

    It's sort of become my "go to". There's nothing that great about it that makes it stand out above the other hotels in the area. But the price works for me, the gambling is not the worst and I have enough food options that I won't starve if I choose not to leave the property. :)

    I would compare it to Monte Carlo. That used to be the place I stayed the most, but I prefer the casino, food and rooms at TI now.

    Good to hear this! My friend and I are booked in for April next year for the first time. Have stayed at the Mirage a number of times but got TI for a steal and have been looking for affirmation!

    First time poster here.

    Ti has been my home base for the last couple of years. For a middle priced property they are hard to beat for location and room quality. Except for the breakfast buffet (which is decent) I can't comment on the restaurants. If you are a VP player, they have good paytables (for the strip) by the players desk for .50 and up.

    Ti has always been good with the room offers, usually with some decent free-play - considering my smallish bankroll and playing habits. Resort fees optional! One drawback is their players card is only good at Ti. So, if you like to casnio hop keep that in mind.

    Thanks for the input. I'm giving TI a try and I'm looking forward to it. I'll port back after the trip.

    I like TI as they have a good selection of games and food.
    The location isn't too bad.
    My only concern is that we like to walk and play (and possibly stay) at other locations.
    With MGM or CET you can do this to get some comps.
    Unless things have changed, I thought TI was by itself which would sort of lock us into that one place.
    If that works for you then TI is defnitely good to go.

    In my mind, MC is the most comparable property.

    Like somebody upthread, I've only stayed in suites, so can't speak to regular rooms. The beds are very comfortable in spite of not having high-end sheets/bedding. The awesome thing about the suites are the two bathrooms. If you're traveling with your spouse, it helps you keep some of the mystery.

    I also found the suites to be less worn than the ones at MC.

    I've found the gambling (primarily VP) to be better at TI than most of the strip, though I have only played at a few of the strip properties.

    For on-site food, breakfast at the buffet is decent, the steakhouse is decent and the seafood place is excellent in spite of the horrible, garish branding from outside the restaurant and entering through the stern of the SS Minnow.

    Staff are alright. While I've found staff at a couple other properties to more friendly overall, I haven't had any real negatives in that arena at TI. Probably the most negative was the person that emailed me from TI that totally ignored my reply.

    Anyway, I'll be there for a week starting in a couple of days.

    Had a good laugh over your SS Minnow assessment. May have to give the food a try though per your experience, in the past I could never get past walking the plank to enter.

    They actually have some of the best low minimum blackjack games on the strip. You can find decent games on the floor for $10 minimum that pay 3:2. Their high limit room has great rules for $25 minimum a lot of the time.

    Be sure and give your compliments to chef Phil Morris. He's a really nice guy and loves to meet his guests. We look forward to visiting with him each trip. And no, he didn't have anything to do with the branding of the place. That was TI management.

    We stayed at TI for our first trip about 3 years ago. I'm not sure if it's because we were just new to Vegas but we really enjoyed TI's proximity to other properties as well as that shopping mall on the north side. Very convenient.

    Still getting offers from them though we haven't stayed, or played, there since our first visit but nothing that immediately makes me want to skip our new go-to in favour of TI.

    I enjoyed my stay at TI. It's been a couple years (before the CVS) but I would stay again. I try to stay at other properties on the strip now, but TI is still one of my favorites. It's close the the mall and some of the bigger properties. I'm always getting great deals through email, so I might take the up on an offer soon.

    I stayed there a few years ago and thought the property was pretty decent. It offers an amazing view of the strip if you're able to score a room on a high floor facing the south strip. The property has some nice dining choices and the casino is easy to navigate thru. There pool area is a bit on the small size but it worked for me. If TI were linked to other properties like CET, I would without a doubt, stay there on a regular basis.
