Everything was good. The room, food, slot machines and the staff was very helpful. We had a great time. Also there a shuttles to other casinos so getting around was easy. The room prices were very reasonable
Loved staying at the Rio. The Self check in was so convenient. We really enjoyed the pools and the zip-line ride. Family and pet friendly. Nice clean and spacious room with a great view of the strip. Plenty of great places to eat.
"Long Check-in Process"
6 hrs in car, great valet service, short walk to reservation desk- great, right'' Wrong- 1 hr in line to check in. 6 kiosks to supposedly help but couldn't get past 1st step. After 30 mins, thank God my wife had her sit-upon cane, a helper'' tried to get the machines to work. Lots of complaints even after machine ok- Room not ready!! 5 or 6 stations at counter but never more than 3 manned. Why the mess'' Supposedly you cant begin to sign in until after 4PM- wow!! Pretty beat up after this Welcome to Rio fiasco. Rooms were a blessing, roomy and clean- but a smell! Nice casino, spacious. I would suggest eating elsewhere- costs are excessive, breakfast $46 for 2- simple bacon & eggs, juice, coffee. Dinner even more. Shuttle service disappointing- only 1 stop- Harrahs. Attraction for me was Free Parking.
The Rio is a beautiful hotel casino. There were many restaurant options. The Rio has a beautiful pool. The Rio is somewhat far from the strip. It is recommended to Uber or take Shuttle to strip because it was a very far walk.
"Escape to warm sunny weather and pool"
The hotel and room were very nice. The pools were very nice except only one was heated. I liked that they had an over 21 pool but the water was too cold so we didn't use it. It is hard to get a chair by the pool unless you want to pay for the "reserved" chairs which means you have to spend so much in food and beverage (which isn't hard to do) and they are covered. We got there around 9 am and were able to get an early check in for $20. It was worth it to us. We also opted for no maid service (we were able to get extra towels etc.) for a $20 room credit. It would be nice if they had a bigger shuttle to get to the strip as there is always a line and sometimes you have to wait a half hour for it to come back. I did walk to the strip one morning and it only took about 25 minutes. The walk is along a very busy street and over the highway but there are sidewalks. The food in the restaurants was very good but pricy.
