I was suppose to check in at Bally's for their blackjack tournament offer. It was 9 am. The desk guy says, "and by the way, there is a $30 early check in fee." This was the first I had heard of an early check in fee. It must have been discussed here but I haven't seen it. This, to me, is even more outrageous than a resort fee. And I am pretty outraged by how stupid and deceptive resort fees are. I can understand LATE check out fees. That makes sense as you staying denies somehow else getting in. Or maybe making the maids work harder or out of order or something. But when a room has been cleaned in the morning and is just sitting there it costs the hotel NOTHING to let you in earlier. It's probably even beneficial to them for a couple of reasons. You get to their casino sooner and you don't cause a huge line at check in at 4 pm. It's just dumb. It's a amazing that I can constantly be disgusted about a new change to the worse every time I go to Las Vegas. And I've been going five to six times a year for a few years. Simply amazing. When did this practice start? After resort fees started? Did the suits say, "they're not balking at resort fees. What else can we come up with?"
