Rio Las Vegas Hotel Review & Casino Tour
Las Vegas has slowly re-opened since June, but even today many casinos still sit shuttered. One of the long closed casinos was Rio, but it recently re-opened before the holidays. I was there on opening night to review the hotel and see what this property looks like after being closed for so long. Hint: It’s not great.
Unfortunately my Rio Las Vegas review isn’t a positive one, but that probably isn’t a surprise if you watched/listened to MtM Vegas where I talked about why I almost walked out. From serious issues with the front desk to no open restaurants my stay wasn’t a positive one, although I did manage to find some positive aspects to share with you.
Overall I can’t recommend this property and I just don’t see where it fits within the Caesars Entertainment lineup nor the Las Vegas casino lineup as a whole. With a location off Strip, a building in desperate need of TLC and employees who could use A LOT more training, this place has great history and quirks, but it isn’t somewhere you should stay.

Rio Las Vegas Hotel Review & Casino Tour – Bottom Line
It truly is sad to see how far Rio has fallen from its heyday, but alas that is exactly what happened. The property is dated on every level and some of the staff doesn’t seem to care. I simply can’t recommend staying at Rio Las Vegas although I suppose the good news for Caesars Entertainment fans is they have tons of other (and better) options on the Strip.
