Wellness checks at CET, recent experience?

    I was considering throwing on a two night stay at CET to piggy pack my mlife offer. I'd only stay one night, and leave late on the second day....sleeping in before moving to mlife.

    The wellness checks make me nervous though. My whole point of adding CET is so I can arrive a day early and sleep in before moving to mlife.

    How intrusive have the wellness checks been recently? If we're only staying one night and leaving late the next day, what are our odds of getting a wellness check?

    If they're still going crazy on these, I'll save a nights gambling money and just go 4 nights at Mlife versus tacking on a CET night for 5 nights...

    One night, you should be ok. Earliest I've had them come at Cromwell is about 36ish hours. Supposedly it's a 48 hr rule as security told me last time but it's apparently more of a 2 night stay kinda deal. We checked in about midnight one night and they were checking on us around noon 36 hours later. I was not amused.

    Thanks SOOO much Sub! 48 hours I'm safe, even 36. But I have read so much on VMB about the CET Gestapo-style door banging/forced entry, I would be PISSED if I went a day early to sleep in, then got that.

    I am a big stressball and go to Vegas to relax. Having someone barge in aggressively while I am sleeping does NOT relax me. :)

    Thanks bunches. 36 hours would be fine. I literally would just need one day and a late checkout. (Would be booking second night just so I have no timeline.)

    No prob, you sound like me. I'm out there to drink, gamble, relax, and catch up on the sleep I miss in my regular life. I'm a pretty mellow guy and am always the first to understand that everyone has a job to do. However, after a long losing night with heaving drinking, my fist wanted to do a wellness check on they guys face, lol.

    Please rewind for the rookie... CET does what??? Come to your room and gives you a forced physical or a mandatory morning wakeup call? I've never stayed at a CET property, so I am a little confused.

    Since the Mandalay incident, several hotels now do some kind of inspection of each room every so many days. Usually it's housekeeping on their daily rounds. For those who decline housekeeping, security does the checks, and have been known to be quite assertive when the guest appears reluctant to submit to said inspection.

    I've stayed at only CET hotels (Ballys and PH) my last few trips since the "incident" and haven't had a wellness check once. I know they do them, so I suppose I was lucky, but based on my experience they must (generally) check during hours that someone wouldn't be sleeping. At least anecdotally, not one wellness check happened to me my last four CET trips after October, 2017, between the hours of 1am-8am. Now, I don't sleep much so they may occur during later morning hours for more normal people who actually sleep lol, but I haven't, knock on wood, had a run in with any staff members yet conducting one of these checks.

    I've declined housekeeping more of the times and I still didn't encounter one of these wellness checks.

    I think that these checks would affect folks who are more inclined to spend more time in the room, whereas I am generally out and about in Vegas. Again, it depends on many factors I'm sure so this is just my experience.

    For the first time, I was well-checked at the Orleans last month. I never take housekeeping and keep the DND tag on the door. It was a 3 day stay and at the end of the 2nd day, there was a knock on the door and announcement of "housekeeping". I looked through the peephole, opened the door in my bed clothes, had my readers on and a pen in my hand and there was housekeeping with a security guy (didn't see him and that's saying something because Orlean's peepholes are large). He talked, she didn't: "maam, we are doing a check, you had your sign on the door for 2 days now". I backed up and said, "sure, no problem". He came through, she held the door, I sat back at the desk continuing to do some work for my job. 5 seconds later, he walked back through, thanked me and shut the door. He was stern, but nothing over the top.

    It stuck with me for about an hour mainly because I was thinking, dang, I'm not that type person. But I guess they have to make the check.

    I've stayed in CET resorts 5x this year so far and never had one bother me (as in I've never experienced one in person at all and all my stays have been 3+ nights), but on my trip last week, I did see a security guard in uniform knocking door to door on my floor, still a couple doors down from my room as I was heading out for the day. That's the first time I've even seen that, and the only times the checkin desk has mentioned it is when I waived service for the $10 credit.

    When I did see that last time, it was around lunch time when it would probably bother the fewest people.

    Just did a three night CP and never encountered them. We were in room on and off during the day. No idea if they stopped in or not while we were gone. Did not do housekeeping and DND sign on the door the entire trip.

    It would make sense that if you were OUT of your room, you had less chance of encountering the wellness check than if you in the room most of the time.

    6 nights at Flamingo last week. I didn't even know this was a thing. We put the DND on the door until we get up (we like to sleep in). Once we leave for the day I take it off. Some days that is 1:00pm. My room was cleaned when I get back every day but one. Why decline housekeeping? I like my trash can emptied, fresh towels and toilet paper :cheers:

    Decline housekeeping? Easy for us.
    If we have enough stuff to fill the trashcan, that means we also have some bags to put the stuff in. Never been an overflowing trash issue.
    They usually have at least two sets of towels in our rooms. Like at home, we sometimes use a towel more than once anyways.
    Never ran out of TP as they usually have one backup roll.
    As to normal pickup and making the bed - we just do that normally while we are in the room.
    Leaving crap laying around while WAITING for someone to clean up is not our thing.

    Not saying what others do is better or worse - just different.

    I decline housekeeping because it's just me in the room for no more than 3 days at each property. There are plenty of towels and toilet paper to last me. I am up early having breakfast and on the casino floor at around 5:00a and am usually back in the room when housekeeping is making its rounds - and that sometimes coincides with me doing some work from my job so I like being undisturbed.

    Curious if this is still happening as I have a stay at CP starting Sunday.

    I encountered this staying at MGM Signature May 2018 - I was there with two friends for EDC so we were up from 5pm to 7am and sleeping outside of that. As always, I left the dnd sign up as my sleep is all over the place when travelling. I was furious when they were banging on the door and told me that housekeeping needed to clean the room with no explanation.

    I understand what they are doing, but if you are going to check on people they need to realize not everyone operates on "typical hours" on vacation, especially in vegas.

    To each their own I guess. Don't get me wrong....I straighten up. I'm a bit of a clean freak. But I'm on vacation and rather enjoy coming back to a nice clean room.

    I don't like the idea of someone just bursting into the room unannounced while I am in the shower or fast asleep (I use all the latches but I understand they have tools to open the door anyway).
    So, I have purchased this little bad boy for my future trips. If anyone tries to enter my room, THEY will be the ones needing a wellness check!!!
