M Resort or Green Valley Ranch

I want to try to stay off the strip for a couple nights since it is cheaper before moving to a strip hotel for a few days- I have come to debate between the M Resort or Green Valley Ranch...anyone stayed in both and have a preferance over one or another?

I have stayed at both and enjoyed both. If you are looking for more to do at or near the casino choose Green Valley Ranch. They have a movie theater and also a outdoor shopping mall that also has additional restaurant choices. The property is very nice. I prefer the rooms at the M Casino a little more, they are more modern and a little newer. The M Casino is fabulous and I prefer their pool a little more. They just don't have as much to offer if you get bored from gaming easily.

Yes, have stayed at both. Both are very nice properties, but if I had to choose between them Green Valley Ranch would be the winner. I like having the District shopping center right there with its shops, and dining, and love Whole Foods. Also like the cinema at GVR.

Both are very nice. M may be a little nicer and has the best seafood buffet in town on the weekends. Green Valley has a multiplex movie theater in the hotel and lots of shopping next door. You will get comp offers from both if your play is decent. However, Green Valley is part of a larger network of hotels (Station Casinos) - so if you want to maybe get offers that are good for those hotels as well that may be a consideration.

Ive stayed at both more times than I can count, really nothing to add to what has already been written. If you dont have a car and will not be leaving the property If its just one night Id say M but with multiple nights as stated more to do other than just the casino at GVR. If you have a car and plan on being out and about like we do and will only be at the resort for pool time and evening activities then Id choose M.

I agree that M is nicer, but that GVR has more to offer. I prefer the casino at M. And the pool at M is great.

Have you considered Red Rock, a sister property to GVR? Red Rock is nicer than GVR, but again, GVR has more to do ("The District").

Thank you for your replies! Red Rock seems great too...as a female going solo- which do you think would be the best choice? would I feel too closed in at the M since there is nothing else around?

I've only stayed at GVR and actually have been looking to book there again at the end of Aug/beg of Sept.

I stayed there solo a few years ago and loved it. I wanted something that was nice and where I could relax when I wanted to as well as gamble, shop, etc and I was very pleased with GVR. Hope that helps your decision !

I wouldn't stay at either without renting a car, honestly. I've stayed at GVR countless times. Haven't stayed at M yet, but I visit every trip. I travel solo 90% of the time and split my trips between on and off Strip. I won't stay off Strip without a car. I prefer Silverton on Blue Diamond Road, but have stayed all over.

It is a quick trip between M and GVR with a car. Not even 10 minutes.

Just another bit of info about M: while I agree having a car would be the best bet, M does offer free shuttle service to/from the airport as well as to/from the strip. The airport service is very regular, but the times for the strip shuttle are only every couple of hours and I believe midnight is their last trip back to the hotel. I believe their drop off/pick up point is at the Fashion Fair mall.
