    Played a poker tournament there on Monday (Sept 14) and while waiting for it to start we played some blackjack. Talked to a floor supervisor, all blackjack shoe games pay 3:2, and we easily found $10 tables (we really didn't look for a $5 table, but it was on a Monday and the place was unexpectedly slow). I was very happy with $10 strip blackjack paying 3:2.

    We always book a few nights here every fall. Best beds and nice staff. Never had a bad experience here and they give good comps too.

    I always liked TI. Location is good with Mirage/Casino Royale/Wynn. Covers low roller to high roller. Always loved their cafe for breakfast and lunch. Rooms/bed I was always been pleasantly surprised with rates usually pretty good...

    TI has been getting some good reviews on the board recently. I have not stayed there so I cannot speak directly about the rooms. A co-worker stayed there last year and said the rooms were decent for the price.

    I will say this... we visited the casino while in Vegas over the Labor Day weekend. It had a very funky odor, like stale cigar smell. Easily the worst smelling casino we visited on the strip.

    I have stayed there a couple of times and I thought it was a nice place to stay.The hotel and casino are good and it's a good location on the Strip as well, would look at it again for next year.

    The only thing I don't like is the too small pool, other than that I like it just fine.

    nothing changed over the past several years except a CVS store opened near the sportsbook and they lighted up the pirate ships outside.

    Never stayed there, always wanted to. Wife loves the gambling there, and she's not much of a gambler, so that is saying something.

    Definitely thinking that part of our next trip will involve a few nights there. I see a lot of people comment on their beds and oddly that has me intrigued.

    Stayed last Oct in a tower suite and have a reservation for next month. The room was dated (like most every property on the strip) but the bed was great and the two bathrooms were awesome. Casino was alright. Drink service was ok. Wasn't the best I've experienced but was far from the worst (I was playing VP). Ate at the bar in Phil's and it was good.

    Ate at Seafood Shack and the food was very good in spite of the horrid name and entrance to the restaurant. Had breakfast at the buffet and it was ok. Was not impressed with any of the other food venues. It does have easy access to so much food nearby in the FSM or other properties that I don't think of food as an issue there.

    My biggest gripe is no options for early check-in if you book a suite. I tried to pay for early check-in and got an email back from somebody there that there was no early check-in for me. I replied to the email asking what my options were and evidently they don't care enough to answer my email (no it wasn't from an automailer). I'm looking at other properties nearby and seriously thinking about going somewhere else.

    I always do a lot of my gambling here.

    South facing, high floors have one the best views on The Strip.

    Buffet is decent for breakfast. Never really warmed up to the café.

    Pool is tiny.

    It seems I always turn a profit at blackjack there. Lots of noobs that don't know how to play can be annoying. In August, the craps tables were a little "bouncy".

    Cocktail service is good. They named the central bar after me.

    I agree that check-in has always been poor in my experience. If you're early, leave your bags and get your party on. They will not check you in.

    Poker Room and Sports Book are a bit small, but very serviceable.

    Good location to other properties. Tram to Mirage a plus.

    Unaffiliated player's card.
