Just booked; but...

So excited to finally book our March trip to Vegas!! Got what I thought was a great deal: $296 for air and 4 nights at the Rio. We have stayed at the Rio about 8 years ago and was excited to go back. Now I'm reading the place has turned into a dump. Please tell me it isn't so!!! I love the Rio!

My only complaint was that it was so cold in the casino but the Cocktail Waiters are very friendly - as are the slots! I also love the shuttle going to the side of Paris, much easier than the one at the back of Harrah's which is still running.

$296 for air and 4 nights sounds like a great deal for me. If you liked the Rio 8 years ago, I'm sure you will still like it.

Time and economy will do changes to any hotel...if you like Rio in 2001, surely you'll like it in 2010. Casino still friendly, buffet's still good and huge, shuttles still run :)

I stayed at the Rio last year and loved it! I love comming back to that casino. Dealers were friendly and GREAT customer service there. I absolutely hated waiting for the shuttle though. I ended up just taking taxis half the time because it was at the end of May and HOT! So I spent quite a bot of money there ....each time to the strip was a 10 dollar cab ride so keep that in mind. The room was spacious and I loved the vanity for getting ready! Have fun and an awesome trip!

Just booked my trip for March also, but staying at the 4 Queens for 5 nights. I hope you have a great time at the Rio. When will you be there? My trip is from March 7-12. I hope things are up to your expectations.

I was just at the Rio. There are areas that are a little worn but it's far from a dump. Just request as Ipenema Tower room as high up as you can get.

That is a GREAT deal - I was at the Rio a couple of years ago, and it still wasn't a dump back then. You won't be disappointed...
