Imperial Palace - Worth 2 nights stay comped?

IP is not one of the hotels I have visited in LV. DH and I have planned another week-long trip in June and have 5 nights comped at MGM and GN. That leaves 2 nights, which includes a Saturday. We are not picky on hotels, other than they provide a CLEAN room and a comfy place to sleep. If we don't stay free at IP (the only comp available to us for Saturday night), we will be paying $65.00 for Saturday night and $35.00 for Sunday night at South Point (love that place!). What do you think-take the free room, or spend the $100+ for South Point?

I stayed at IP for similar reasons last trip. I have mixed feelings about it. One one hand, it was a clean and comfortable room. On the other, the hotel and casino still seem old and dingy even after its remodel and when service was bad, it was reaally bad. Since I can think of better ways to spend $100, in your shoes I would probably do IP again but I would be trying to find better options til the second I left.

While IP is not the brightest bulb on the Strip it does have a dead on mid strip location whereas Southpoint is way too far away from anything and Did Not impress me at all.

Im not a big fan of many of the off strip hotels because they have a tendency to have more locals then the strip hotels, that said, I have stayed at a few off strip Hotels in my day but I always have a rental car at my disposal.

keep the Imperial Palace and stay there for Saturday night. If you feel that you can't tolerate it, then buy the South Point for Sunday. When we get a hotel that we're not very sure about, we always schedule a day trip away from Vegas so as to minimize the time spent in the hotel. Maybe it would be a good time to take a trip to Zion, or the North Rim or Death Valley.

IP beats the defunct Laughing Jackolope!

It's old, dingy, dark, smelly but when I stayed there, some years ago, I found the room clean.

It's free and in a great location so I'd take it. I had a comp offer there and was worried but all was fine. No funky smells and the room was clean. Didn't have an problems with service from the staff either.

I have always found it to be clean. The last time the bar area was a bit grungy but the rooms were clean.

Made the mistake of taking a comp the day we were taking the red eye. Would we do it again - no way!

Just not for us!
