More about Jockey Club
Smoker's paradise, non-smokers nightmare!
Pre-booked the Jockey Club on the Strip in Las Vegas for a non-smoking room. Arrived only to find out that there really is no such thing in this hotel! This seems to be an older time-share complex and we were offered 3 different rooms, all 'non-smoking' complete with ASHTRAYS!!! Decor was tatterred and the kitche appliances were naff 1970's brown!!! UGH!!! We bailed out and went to the Straosphere.....
Staff at Jockey Club were VERY nice and tried to help as best they could. If you are a NON-SMOKER, stay away!!!! If you're a smoker, I'd still suggest better accomodations can be found for the money.....
Affordable, Inexpensive Center Strip Stay
Located in the center of the strip, the Jockey Club was a find.
My young twenty-something girlfriends and I were looking for a place that was safe, inexpensive and at an ideal location for a weekend getaway.
For less than $325 for two nights (Fri/Sat), we got the two bedroom (1 king size, 1 queen size bed, 1 double bed), two bathroom suite, complete with a kitchen that had all the amenities i.e. flatware, refrigerator, glasses, plates, etc.
We weren't in our room too often, but when we were we were very comfortable, and it felt more homey than other hotels.
Obviously, the nearby hotels like the Bellagio and Paris are much ritzier, but for the price we paid, the Jockey Club more than met our basic needs and we still got to enjoy the ambience of the other hotels. I plan on staying at the Jockey Club again, especially if I go with another large group.
Some issues were that we couldn't get a later check-out than the standard 11 a.m. one and they couldn't fulfill our request for more pillows and blankets (2 pillows instead of 4). But we survived.
You won't need a nightlight, the window provides one itself...
Las Vegas was fab, I got to the hotel and pondered on which desk to check in at, there was a shop, 2 desks at the end and one at the front, I persumed the first one, I guessed jolly right!
Remember that it's that folks ;)
I checked in and boarded the lift, you'll notice that if you wave your arms about, it actually looks like there's loads of clones of you!
It's extremely amusing, but just don't go doing when someone is in the lift with you.
Got my hotel, and the first thing I noticed was the ugly brown fridge, my granma's is more modern that that.
Slowly I approached the bedroom (because I had a suite!).
Lights were twinkling, and I had a great view of this beautiful fountain, which i watched all the time.
As I said, you don't need a night light, this is Las Vegas darling, and boy my view was fantastic, the large window provided a good view of the strip, where the hotel layed in the middle of it.
Kitchens great if you want to eat-in!
Good choice of television, the bathroom was okay, and I was quite happy with my room!
Great pool on the 2nd floor with a gym and and one of those little spa things, and a sauna!
Very happy with my room, until at the end of my holiday I peeked at the one next door, which had a better kitchen and nicer table, my room looked pretty poor against, but I tried to think positive and not cry, and set of home.
Very nice though, very nice :D
It's like home
I have owned a timeshare at Jockey Club for 9 yrs.( it was a birthday present to my husband.) And we have have gone almost every year since, and sometimes twice a year. We enjoy Las Vegas and all the glitz and glamour of the strip (which is within walking distance of the Jockey, no need of a car.) But when we come home at night, it feels like home, warm and fuzzy. The staff are fantastic, always very accomodating the furnishings comfy and clean. If you're thinking about buying one, do it, you'll feel like you are going home each year. If you are renting you won't find a condo with better location on the strip! My kids look forward to our get togethers in Vegas every other year, and my grandkids say they are going to gramma's house. It feels that comfortable. ( we have to rent two or three units to accomodate everyone) I love my Jockey Club, it's my home away from home.
Went for a week (for free) thanks to a dear Aunt of mine who owns a timeshare there.
It's no Ritz or Four Seasons, but it's not that bad either. The view is pretty good. The location as well.
Room was clean and housekeeping was good. And the bed was quite comfy and the closets were huggee. Good size room.
The only downfall is the usual hotel amenities, valet, room service, etc. The location can't be beat...but the huge parking lot looks creepy at night.
It's okkayy...wouldn't stay there again. Vegas has great rates at great hotels. I live in a city where a Holiday Inn in a remote location costs $129 a night...that's what you pay to stay at the Paris, MGM, Mandalay Bay. Vegas rooms are CHEAP!!
But hey the Jockey Club was free! Can't say no to a free week in Vegas!
If you are booked into a north-side room in either tower, there is a manditory 4am wake-up call from contruction next door at the Bellagio, Sunday an included! They seem all too happy to book you on this side of the time share (not hotel...you may be approached by sales staff in the somewhat dreary parking lot, as we were) and then they blame the Bellagio for your insomnia and resulting discomfort after you complain.
Housekeeping and other services were top drawer, as are the recent renovations. Rooms are very nicely done...but indded with ashtrays! (sorry management)
A bargain but not worth it
Booked Thanksgiving week because of price and location. Good news is that room was large and ammenties plentiful. Bad News was that beds were ancient and very uncomfortable. Blinds didn't work. Tub had no stopper. In general, maintenance was poor. Staff was totally insensitive to issues. We will not stay there again and would not recommend it even at the price.
Great View if you're lucky
We intended staying at the Hilton but when we got there we realised we had booked the wrong nights so ended up having to ring tourist info to find somewhere to stay.
We ended up with a suite at the Jockey Club which is right next to The Bellagio. It was $350 a night for 2 large rooms, kitchenette, living area and 2 bathrooms which between 4 of us was fine and it did sleep 6. When we arrived we all thought it looked a bit dated, but the room itself was absolutely fine and we had THE most amazing view of Vegas. If you are going to stay here I would strongly recommend you ask for a room facing The Bellagio. Every 15 minutes or so there is a colourful water display at the front of the Bellagio which you can watch if your room is facing the right way. Amazing.
Kitchenette had microwave, dishwasher, oven, coffee making etc and although it was all a little bit dated it was absolutely fine for our purposes.
Can anyone tell me a phone number or web site for the hotel...

I can find reviews for it but no contact details. It sounds like just what we are looking for. Anyone stayed there recently?
