    I just booked the Tuscany for $22+ on Agoda. I've always wanted to stay and the rate is great or so it seems to me. Imput welcome.

    I have stayed there and their rooms are really nice. Quite large and they come with a mini fridge, coffee pot, and I think a microwave. Can't remember about the microwave though.

    They also have a nice sofa, recliner, large flat screen T.V. and very comfortable beds and pillows.

    Bathroom is really nice as well.

    Their room rates are good, I found them as low as $20.00 per night plus resort fee, mid week Sun.-Thurs.

    I have always booked directly with the hotel, because then it is totally refundable, should you need to change dates or cancel.

    There's a thread on Tuscany Suites which began on November 26 which has good information. I've stayed there many times.

    @pebbles has posted a number of trip reports while staying at Tuscany as a ‘home base’, some for many nights at a time. You may want to reach out to @pebbles if you have any specific questions.

    When I stayed there, the microwave was by-request, although there was no additional charge.

    The rooms have safes, also.

    It's a great off strip property. Nice big rooms. The casino is small but will have everything you need. Enjoy.

    Yes, the microwave needs to be requested, but is supplied free of charge upon request. Kitchenware (e.g. plates and bowls and cutlery) is completely absent and not available, but plastic and paper cups are supplied, as are free drip filter coffee packs and tea-bags (both replenished daily by housekeeping). Depending how fast you walk it's only about 7-10 mins from the Tuscany exit next to Platinum to Bally's / the strip. The Flatscreen TV in my room was pretty small, but the room was so spacious and reasonably priced that it was easy to overlook. The corridors in some buildings are long and some buildings are placed a fair way back in the complex, so that is also something to consider at check in when asking if there is any flexibility on room assignment. 3rd floor rooms (top floor) are also recommended as 1st and 2nd floor rooms can be noisy from people walking around directly upstairs. I asked at check in whether there was any possible flexibility doable for room allocation since I was staying 7 nights, and the young lady kindly offered me 3 rooms on a map so that I could choose my favourite. From memory I tipped her $10 at the end of the check in process for her help/kindness. The pool is pretty small and can get very cloudy (due to heavy chlorination) in summer, because a lot of families with kids stay there, and as any parent knows, kids do tend to pee in the pool. I found the casino to be fine for a night of gambling before trying other venues. Quite a bit bigger than Ellis Island in terms of the number of slots, but Ellis Island was more crowded and had more vibe/atmosphere due to it being a bit closer to the strip. Food there was even better and still very cheap. Food at Tuscany was fine and very reasonably priced, and when I stayed (July 2019) they give you a book of discount coupons when you check in, and another different one when you join their player's card program. Once you have stayed once and gambled and eaten a bit there, they start to email discount or comp offers (depending on how much you spent) to player's card program members, and these come every 3 months. They were non-existent (in my experience) at replying to any emails though (e.g. when requesting info about rooms etc.), so I just gave up and booked my next trip via Agoda, which worked out cheaper than their 30% off emailed deal. (I didn't gamble enough there to get a comp, just a discount). I'd like to book direct with them, but that depends on their responsiveness. Anyway, I personally think Tuscany is great for the price/location, so hopefully it works out well for you / others too.

    I always use Hotels.com versus booking direct with Tuscany- the prices have always been much lower that way.

    So, might Agoda and / or Hotels.com be that much cheaper ? Has anyone ever used the hotel cashback and how did that work ?

    I have never used Agoda, but doing price comparisons between Tuscany's website and Hotels.com shows a significant difference in price.

    For my dates, direct from Tuscany is cheapest.

    I haven't found Tuscany to have better prices that Agoda / Hotels.com. Maybe, my dates aren't price friendly.

    I just checked the rate for May 20-22 through the Tuscany website and it shows the Best Available rate as $83.95 per night. Same room on Hotels.com is less than $35 per night for the same dates.

    That $29 is non refundable. Apples to oranges. cheaptickets has it for $1 more total if you use their promo code, and it is refundable in case the price goes down. $1 is pretty cheap insurance in case your plans change.
