“What a disappointment”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

We usually stay at the Rio and were hoping we hadn't made a mistake in not doing so this trip. Boy were we relieved when we visited there. The Rio is undergoing renovations and there were large areas on the casino floor with no slot machines or slot machines that were not in working order.
They also have a new system for bringing drinks while you play. A server will come up to you with a ipad and take your drink order then tell you you must wait at the slot machine you are playing at for 5 minutes for your drink to arrive. Your slot machine has a number and that number is assigned to your drink order so the person delivering the drink can find you. What I saw this creates is people who tire of their game just sitting at the machine not playing while waiting for their drink to arrive so they can move on. Good idea on paper Rio but in actuality it didn't appear to be such a good thing.
I will give the Rio some time to complete it's renovations and will be sure I just visit there rather than stay again until they have it up and running at 100%.

“Mardi Gras overhead”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

This is an interesting casino to experience. There is a Mardi Gras parade around the casino OVERHEAD. Tracks in the ceiling take the floats around the entire casino several times each night. You have to experience it.

“They got rude”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

Stayed there several times years ago, and then returned in 2009 and it is NOT what it was. The only thing the same was the rooms are large and very nice. Bartender and another employee was rude, prices were high, and unless you drive or want to take a cab, you are pretty much stuck. You could walk to the Palms or Gold Coast though. I know you can't base an entire casino on just one or two who work there, but as locals, we are DONE.
