This hotel is all about location! I found a really awesome rate on this hotel, so for the price we paid it was an excellent deal. The hotel is adjoined to it's sister property, Paris Hotel and is located across the street from the Bellagio, Ceasers Palace, etc.
The room we had was in need of some refurbishing, but it was spacious and clean. Besides, who spends much time in their room in Las Vegas? It could have used a new coat of paint and the windows cleaned, but it was a good deal.
The rest of the hotel and casino were very nice. The lower level shopping promenade was under minor construction while we were there, but it looks like it will be a really nice area once completed.
Unique Quality: We could see most of the strip from our hotel room, and we got to watch the Bellagio water fountain show right below us every night. The view was amazing (except for those nasty dirty windows!)
Getting to other hotels from Bally's was pretty easy. There is a tunnel/hallway that leads right into the Paris Hotel and Casino. Also, if you go to the floor above the casino, there is a direct way to get to the walkways over the strip, to get to the other side of the street.
I stayed at Bally's for 3 nights from Thursday, Sept 2nd - Sunday morning, Sept 5th, 2004 This was my very first trip to Las Vegas First, I made my reservation online on August 6th, 2004, and requested my preference for a non-smoking room with king size bed. Of course in order to book your room, you have to pay for your first night in advance. In my case, it was $70.85 including taxes. My next 2 nights costs about $195.00 each, for a grand total of $495.00 . My room was located in the South tower. The room was a nice size.I walked over to my window to look out and.....from the window , you could see the Paris Hotel,(Bally's sister Hotel) the 1/2 scale replica of the Effiel tower, the large circular pool for Paris Hotel guests, a decent but not complete view of the Bellagio hotel across the street, with a partial view of the Bellagio fountain show. (awesome!) You can also have a very nice view of the strip. The Big Kitchen Buffet (in Bally's) was nice and the staff was friendly and very attentive and provided very good service. Take the elevators down to the lower level where the shops are set up like that of a strip mall. I also recommend visiting the Indigo Lounge while staying at Ballys. They offer some nice live entertainment . "Cat Daddy's" was good entertainment and great music! Bally's and it's sister Hotel, Paris is connected. Bally's is a nice Hotel, it just doesn't have a theme like the other hotels. I would recommend Ballys to anyone. In fact, I will stay at Ballys again Any of the odd number rooms on that floor will assure you of a nice view of the strip on the Las Vegas Blvd side. I would recommend signing up for a Bally's Connection Card, so you can get discounts at certain places affiliated with Bally's and earn comps for gambling and get a 3 percent rebate on your room, when you pay cash. I would recommend Bally's to other's, because my overall experience was great!
Bally's is Great!!!
Enjoy your stay!
Unique Quality: Nice views of the strip and other hotels from the South Tower, if you're up on a high enough floor. The Big Kitchen Buffet (in Bally's) was nice and the staff was friendly and very attentive and provided very good service. The food was fresh, the restaurant was very clean, and they have a nice selection of different food so I do recommend eating at the Big Kitchen Buffet. Bally's staff was friendly and was helpful in answering any questions I had. Bally's pool is a nice size.
You have the option of having drinks brought to you.
Directions: Bally's sits directly across the street from the Bellagio Hotel and sits next door to the Paris Hotel, since Paris is connected to Bally's. Bally's sit's in the middle of the strip.
Got shipped over here because the Paris was overbooked. The check-in staff is quite friendly, and the rooms are clean and spacious. Tried the buffet for breakfast, and found it to be just OK. Lots of shopping underneath the casino complex. The gambling is poor - tables are not less than $10. Drink service lags as well. Go next door (connected by a shopping/dining area) to Paris for the gaming.
Update - 2013:
We stayed here again in 2013. My brother got there a night before I did, and had major issues with the door, so they upgraded us to a junior suite. This made me look at Ballys in a whole new light. Give them props for the service (although he did have to request the upgrade.) The room itself was also very nice - lots of space, and it always helps to have a sink outside the bathroom. It also is tough to complain based on the location - Ballys is on the best corner of the strip - great access to anywhere you want to go.
Unique Quality: The pool actually has a deep end! Somewhat of a rarity in traveling these days.
Depending on where your room is, you may have a great view of the Bellagio fountains across the street.
Directions: Mid-strip. Great location to some of the more popular casinos.
We had a great time here. Ballys looks rubbish on the outside but the location is class and the rooms are spot on.
Unique Quality: Location location location!!
Bally's is one of the best deals on the strip for hotels. You have to keep in mind that you won't necessarily be gambling at only one casino. The casino is okay, nothing special. The room is the key here. They're bigger than rooms at a lot of the other resorts and you can usually get them much cheaper. I like Bally's because of the location. It is across the street from Bellagio and a few minutes walk from The Venetian. It connects to Paris and Caesar's is on the opposite street corner. I
t's a perfect location on the strip for the money. Many of the standard rooms also have small balconies (I do mean small) that are perfect for viewing the Fountains of Bellagio. The new Las Vegas monorail also connects to the hotel, though I hear that Clark County has been having a hard time keeping the monorail in operation.
If you don't plan on doing all of your gambling in your own hotel/casino, then I highly recommend Bally's. The rooms are much more comfortable.
For our first time in Las Vegas I researched extensively to find a hotel with the two things my husband and I were looking for 1- a sportsbook with a bar, and 2-karaoke nearby. We both found what we were looking for at Bally's. Bally's is right in the middle of the strip nestled among such giants as Ceasar's, the Bellagio, Paris and the Flamingo. But its not so big that you get overwhelmed. The casino is relatively small, so you can get from one end to the other without losing your mind or your wallet. The room we had was very large and comfortable. The sportsbook is down a long hallway but it was so nice to sit and drink and watch sports that we hated to even move. There was an excellent litte Japanese restaruant down there too. The karaoke place is called 'Ellis Island' and you get there by going out the back door and going down the side street. It could be kind of a scary walk if you are afraid of wondering off the strip, but I loved it. The only negative was that the front desk had some trouble figuring out the Expedia reservation we had made, and they actually gave a key to our room to someone else. Luckily we had bolted the door and it all got straightened out. I recommend Bally's if you are looking for comfort without the sensory overload that Vegas is famous for.
Unique Quality: The sportsbook was very comfortable. They also had something rare in Vegas, at the bar at the Mexican restaurant, you could actually just sit at the bar, which was simply...a bar...and not a bank of video poker machines.
Directions: In the middle of the strip accross from the Bellagio.
We arrived at the Las Vegas airport after our flight from the netherlands. At the airport we walked passed a lobby for a few hotels including Ballys.
We decided to check in here because it wasn't crowded here and we didn't know how busy our hotel lobby would be.
Because it was a national holiday they didn't have our reserved king room anymore. We accepted it just because we where tired and got our luggage.
Once in the room the view was great, the room was good but not what we expected...went to the lobby and the moved us to the room we booked the next day.
That room was great, the view wasn't as good but all was just a bit more luxurious as the previous room...
We filled a complaint when checking out about this mishap, we would hear about that...but it's now a month later and nothing yet.....but all in all the stay was great....
Unique Quality: The hotel has some great views over the strip, depending in which tower you are staying. The rooms are very good and the service of the staff is good. If you book a room be sure to find a package which has coupons to the shows in the hotel. We visited Jubilee and it was really great...
Pictures taken June 2004
Directions: Right at the strip near the Eifel tower.
Bally's entrance contains a large escalator surroinded by waterfalls and Palm trees. Its known for its high stakes Baccarat Room and the show Jubilee, which is performed here.
Very Pleasant. I would recommend this hotel simply because it's location is great. It's situated about the middle of the strip and has lots of beautiful hotels around it. Not as pricey as some of the nearby hotels and yet you can still enjoy most of the things those hotels have to offer.
Unique Quality: The pool is okay, but probably poor by Vegas standards. Most hotels have very lush tropical type pools. One perk is that the Paris Hotel is connected to Bally's so you can easily enjoy the shops and restaurants without evening leaving the building!
Directions: Las Vegas Strip
Location and price were important in choosing where to stay while in Las Vegas - especially since this was my first visit in July of 2000.
Bally's is in a great location. It's practically in the center of the strip and close to some cool attractions (Bellagio Water Fountain Show, Eiffel Tower, the mall in Caesars Palace).
It's a bit older then the other hotels, therefore it's not as expensive as the newer hotels such as Bellagio, Paris Paris, or Venetian.
There's also a free monorail connected to the hotel.
We have often stayed at Bally's (since 1990). They have changed rooms for us because we weren't fond of the view, and have often upgraded us in the process. This was not done because we're great gamblers, or because they know us personally, no, they did it to keep the customer coming back. The rooms are spacious, border on the luxurious, and the restaurants and shops within the complex are good. Plus, you don't have to fight your way past all the machines to get to the front desk. Clear sailing from the door to the clerk.
Unfortunately, our last visit (Feb 2011) found ourselves stuck in a room level with a roof joining two of the front towers. The room was supposedly a Deluxe room. but was tired looking, a bit shabby, with a toilet that ran for hours attempting to fill the reservoir. The window was filthy, but it didn't matter, because our view consisted of heating/air conditioning vents. There is more to this story, but I get angry discussing it. Perhaps more at a later date.
Alas, they no longer have the Big Kitchen which was a favourite buffet of ours, with unlimited orange juice to wet the whistle. However, they do have a very small morning buffet in the Sidewalk Cafe. It has the basics, at a reasonable price. Service is spotty however, certainly not the snap-to-it attention that Ballys was proud to offer a few years ago. The cafe closes at 2PM, so basic food items are not available mid afternoon.
For years Ballys has been our favourite hotel, much like an old pairof slippers, recommending it to anyone who asked. Sadly, it has disappointed us two years running, so this coming summer we will be switching to Bellagio or Caesars. I say sadly, simply because we feel like we have lost an old friend. Too many small details are being over looked, and customer satisfaction is at a new all time low. Staff are bitter, unhappy, and it shows.
I get the feeling that this property will be re-inventing itself in the very near future.
Unique Quality: The casino floor is large, lots of penny and nickel machines, and a wonderful selection of dollar and quarter slots to keep you happy, however the floor is so easy to navigate. I highly recommend the Blazing 7's. Nothing like the excitement you feel when you see the red Blazing 7's drop down, one by one, side by side, on the center line.
If you are looking for a member in your party, you can overlook the floor from the elevated section which consists of desk clerks and shops, and the additional height gives you a greater advantage over other casino. Finding friends or family members is a snap.
You also are centrally located on the Strip, and have direct access to The Paris Casino, with most major casinos just minutes away.
Bally's rates are always at least $20 a night cheaper than those of its sister hotel. Paris, which is attached.
Having stayed in them both, I have to say I prefer Bally's, even without the price difference! The staff were far more helpful (I think at the Paris they feel snooty staff = authentic Parisian atmosphere :) the rooms are every bit as nice, and the elevators are MUCH closer to the parking garage than the Paris' . After a few days of all the walking in Vegas, you will be so grateful for this, trust me.
If you join the Park Place player's club (Flamingo, Caesar's, Bally's, Paris & the Hilton) you'll regularly get really good discount offers from Bally's for $49-$69 a night.
Directions: Central strip (across the street from Bellagio)
Large guest rooms. We had three women sharing one room and there was more than enough room to spread out our stuff and not get in each others way. The view was great from our room. And the hotel has been recently renovated so it was up to date and very clean. The housekeeping staff was very accommidating to odd schedules and returning later in the day to clean the room. Everyone who worked there was super friendly and always had a smile and pleasant greeting.
Check-in at airport was quick and they allowed me to check in at 11am.
Pool is relaxing with a slight party atmosphere with a bar and music. Pool is large with a deep end with minimal children.
Casino was okay, but I never saw anything lower than $10 to $15 minimum tables. However, Barbary Coast is next door and they always had low minimum tables. Plus, Paris (which is attached to Bally's) has 5cent video poker which is a personal favorite...hours of fun without losing too much.
Location can't be beat. Bellagio and Ceaser's are across the street. Venetian is about a 15 minute walk. Along the way, stop at Casino Royal for a $1 margarita (strawberry or regular).
Unique Quality: Check out www.quikbook.com for cheaper rates. I was able to get about $85 a night for a Thursday to Monday stay. However, I prepaid and made reservations about 3 months in advance.
We didn't spend much time in the casino area here, but our room was very spacious and clean. Huge bathroom.... nice beds... nice view. Staff was friendly. Check-in and check-out was fast and easy. Moving walkway takes you out to the strip... right across from the Bellagio and their lovely dancing fountains. There is an inside walkway to Paris next door.
Unique Quality: Room Size... 600 sq ft
Convenient location... close to Bellagio, Caesar's, Rio (via shuttle), Flamingo, Paris, Aladdin!
Frequently has Internet Specials for very reasonable room prices.
Although separate hotels from the outside, these two hotels are linked internally, (making it so much easier to get lost!) We stayed in Bally's which was fine (we only stayed for 1 night).
Unique Quality: The 'Frenchness' is quite authentic; french bread and cooking are great

CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT THE DEPOSIT IS AT BALLY'S? WE ARE STAYING 5 NIGHTS. HAVE YOU SEEN THE PRICE IS RIGHT SHOW? IS IT ANY GOOD? IF WE TIP THE CHECK IN CLERK, CAN WE GET A ROOM IN NORTH TOWER?
No deposit required if you give them a major credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Discover) to book the room. You can request the north tower at the time of booking. They will check to see if it's available during your stay - no need to tip them. But don't expect them to grant the request the day you arrive. That may not be possible. Also, don't expect a room to be availabe without a reservation in advance. Depending on what is going on in Vegas at the time - every hotel can be booked up! During the month of March - is March Madness (having to do with betting on college basketball). If there's a boxing match scheduled - it's amazing how many people attend these events! And, let's not forget the many, many conventions being held in Vegas at any given time.
Most Vegas Hotels now require a one night deposit on credit card, refundable if cancelled at least by 3pm one to 3 days before arrival.
