    Staying in Vegas 16 nights. already booked Cal, Bally, and Orleans(all comped except RF at Bally). Looking for June 10-13 3 nights.
    Never stayed at Tuscany before and price seems good at $30 + 24RF + taxes = around $62 a night. King suite 650 SF. Searched for reviews on here but found little. Yes I also look on tripadvisor and seems like nice property. Looks real close to Ellis Island also. Any feedback? Since we smoke we don't do Mlife properties. Could go downtown Boyds or CET(RF) for about half, but looking for nicer room.

    Haven't been to Tuscany yet, but would like to. I like the amenities they offer and they get good reviews on Tripadvisor.

    I have stayed at Tuscany numerous times and I have always found it to be a great place to stay. The rooms are really nice and spacious and the casino is not that big but I always find it good to play in. Also a nice 24 hour café there as well. Ellis Island is about a 5 minute walk away. I would recommend Tuscany without a doubt.

    I have never stayed there, but my local friends go there
    to eat sometimes and they seem to love the place. I thought
    it was nice when I met them there. Seems like a good location too.

    I stayed there on my first trip, almost 10 years ago now. I'm pretty sure they've upgraded the rooms.

    At the time, the pluses were price, big rooms ~600SF, full refrig.

    The cons were the decor (which I think they've fixed), the check in area was tiny and was a zoo (don't know current status), the pool area was tiny (not a pool person, just an observation). The peephole in my door was missing the lens, so I had to stuff a napkin in it, lol.

    One thing that might concern some people is the layout - it's basically a cluster of freestanding apartment buildings. They must have some security patrolling the parking lots but I don't remember ever seeing any.

    If it's getting good reviews these days, they probably have spiffed the place up; it wouldn't have been getting great reviews when I stayed there.

    I've not stayed there but I think we're going to give it a shot next month. It's not really a "Vegas trip". We're flying in and out of Vegas and doing all 5 Utah national parks in between. This will give us a quick taste to use for future reference.

    Found a $30 special on southwest and booked for next week. Love the casino and Pub 365 is a killer place if you're into craft beers.. sportsbook is puny and no poker tables so that sucks.

    I really like the Tuscany. If you have a car, you can park closer to your room than in just about any other hotel, which I really appreciate. Also the lounge has live music several days a week.

    Smaller casino, very puny sports book with no racing book. Nice location close to strip and easy walk to Ellis or Silver 7.
    I think Tuscany is a "hidden" value. Go for it!

    Booked it for 3 nights M-W. I usually always book directly with hotel, but this time I used a Groupon. I know no chance of getting comped, but this is our last 3 days of a 16 day trip and will probably be gambled out of funds. Or if not then don't care. $31 a night + $24 RF plus taxes. But went through ebates for 6% rebate off and get 5% rebate from Groupon upon arrival. Can cancel up to 4 days before. Came with $10 food and $10 drink credit. But those rebates and credits bring the net cost down below $60 a night. Saving my EIlis Island LVA 's for those days. And looking forward to 365 Pub

    I stayed in building D last month for $24 + resort fee. The casino and restaurants are good. The Electrical in our building sucked. The door locks were iffy taking multiple tries to get in (up to 20 tries). The air conditioning we set it as low as it would go 60f. It was loud and kept on shutting off even though it never got even close to feeling cold in there. Also the plugs in dining area didn't work. I would visit the casino again but will spend the extra dollars for a Bally's room next time.

    It should go good if my previous stays are anything to go by, when I looked around I couldn't get in there for my dates but checked today and was able to book and at a good price as well.

    I can't answer that one as I have never eaten in there, although it always seems to look busy when I walk past.

    A mate of mine (who's a Vegas junkie) is currently in Vegas and he text me yesterday. I have always said he should take a look at the Tuscany and he has asked me a few questions about it as he knows I have stopped their a few times. Anyway he went to have a look around yesterday and he was well impressed. He said he will consider stopping there next year.

    My three night stay was enjoyable and the suite was huge with more than adequate a/c. It was 120 outside and the room was always comfortable. Will definitely stay again.

    Marilyns Cafe --I had pot roast and lasagna on separate occasions and sadly must say they were the two worst sit down meals I've ever had in vegas...putrid comes to mind.

    The Cafe had a outstanding panini

    Didn't try Tuscany Gardens but the reviews are very good

    Pub 365--Ahi was very good and reasonably priced at $19.. carnitas were $2 during happy hour and I prob ate 12 during my stay:feedme:

    Casino seemed to give everyone a lot of play for the money however I'm a poker and sports bettor so hung out another casino most of the time

    I actually have stayed at the Tuscany and the rooms are amazing!!! They are huge. All rooms are suites. The come with a king/ or 2 queen beds, which are very comfortable by the way.

    Rooms also feature a sofa, recliner, a dining table, and refridgerator. Not to mention a microwave and a sink.

    Bathroom is large, with a stand alone shower and a tub.

    Pool is fine and they have a casino on property which is nice, and several places to eat. I highly recommend Marilynn's cafe. They offer great specials and there is a coupon in the ACG for the Pub there.

    You won't be disappointed by this property. And parking is free as well.:rolleyes:
