During my visit to Las Vegas, we choose to stay in South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa.
If you have a car to drive around in Las Vegas, then the more you may want to consider staying at here. It is about 15 mins away from the Strip Las Vegas but it is as good as any hotel in the Strip and best of all, it is so much cheaper. Even if you don’t drive, there are free shuttle buses to bring you to the core of The Strips.
South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa is also great for family with kids as it has many entertainment such as bowling centre and movie theatre for your children.
Upon checking, we were given coupon to used in South Point Hotel. There are really nice offer and deals, up to 50% such as the Garden Buffet for breakfast and Lunch.
Restaurants in South Point Hotel
- Garden Buffet Restaurant
- Steak ‘n Shake
Want some steak and fries? Then dine at Steak ‘n Shake.
- Michael’s Gourmet Room
If you don’t like buffet and like something classy, then dine at Michael’s Gourmet Room. Pricey but it is an elegance experience.
There are up to 16 theaters and stadium seats at Century Theatre South Point Hotel. It also offer variety of food and choice of candy. Every Tuesday there are good bargain movie ticket at $5.25. You will notice the cinema is well-kept, clean and comfortable.
South Point Bowling Center
Plenty of quality lanes, nice bowling vibe for family with children. Snack bar at the bowling center has variety of comfort food, such as nachos, chicken fingers and almost everything. Overall it is very spacious and clean bowling alley.
VSiN – Broadcasting Studio
There is a also a broadcasting studio in South Point Hotel, you get to see how broadcasting is done.
If your shoes are dirty from the Grand Canyon desert walk, you can have your shoe shine at South Point Hotel, there are charges.
Hotel Room Review
Our Room are meant for 4 pax. There are 2 king size bed. The room is super spacious, you can dance inside the room if you need some zumba exercise.
2 layer of curtain, one thin and one thick layer.
- Flat screen TV at the wall
- wardrobe and cabinet
- Work station and phone
- Table & chair for tea & coffee
Room is bright if you turn on all the lighting.
- Clean towels
- Coffee & Tea maker
- Safe Box – free of charge
- Iron & Iron board
- Hangers for clothing
The space between the opposite rooms are very large, therefore you can hardly hear any noise from the neighboring room. Sound proof is very good.
Vending Machine are at each level, selling soft drinks. If you need ice, there is an ice machine too, ice are free of charge.
There are chairs for you to sit down while waiting for the lift to come up.
South Point Hotel is so big so it is no surprise to see travelator that bring you from one point to another.
It has one of the biggest gym and most complete equipment for both cardio and resistance training. Any fitfam would love this place to the max.
Plenty of Treadmills so there is no need to worry you can’t get one.
Many other machines for resistance training.
Yoga and other Boot camp at very cheap price.
There is outdoor pool but was closed as I was too early.
South Point Casino is very big. Guests of the hotel, including children has to pass through the casino before going up the hotel. Therefore you will expose to children to gambling activities. But that is how most hotel in Las Vegas are like. However, there are many security officers to ask you to stay away from the gambling table if you are with young children. Security officer will not allow you to stay near the casino table. Not even one minutes.
You will also see the half dress waitresses walking around with little clothes, showing half of their butt and boobs, probably is LV casino culture, I am not sure.
- Horse Racing
Casino hall for black jack, roulette, slots machines is still empty as it was very early in the morning when I took these pictures.
We don’t have Bingo in Singapore so I have a peep at the Bingo room, full of gamblers but majority of them are senior citizen.
Final thoughts :
South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa is about 10 mins drive from the core of Strip. If you are driving, the more you have to stay in South Point, not only the price is so much cheaper than any hotel in the Strip but the parking lots are so spacious too. Even if you are not driving, there are shuttle bus to bring you to the Strip.
South Point Hotel is cater for family with children as there are many activities that you can do with your family such as movie and bowling. I like this hotel mainly it is away from the noisy street from the Strip.

Dear Zoran, thanks for your kind comment here. It is really a hidden gem in Las Vegas. It has almost everything under one roof. Great for family with children.
This looks like a really ideal place to stay in LV. Close to the strip but not so close you have all the noise. I like that its family friendly.
Thank you taking your time to comment. It is really an ideal place for family and I too love how it is away from the busy street of the Strip. Very family friendly indeed. Lots of free parking too!
Looks like a brilliant hotel and a wonderful place to stay on a future visit to Vegas!
Do check this hotel out as it really giving a good offer as compare to any hotel in the Strip. Worth to try it out!
I’ve been to Vegas a thousand times and never considered to visit this hotel and casino. There’s so much outside the strip that people don’t realize. I’m planing on going in July so I’ll definitely check South Point this time.
You only see locals American using South Point Las Vegas Casino Hotel. It is popular among the locals and I hardly see any foreigners using this hotel. I am glad to have found this hidden gem. A lot cheaper than hotel in the Strip but has everything for family with children. You would never get bored.
the whole hotel has such a simple yet classy vibe! the gym was packed although it wasnt a big space so that’s pretty cool!
The gym is pack with all gym equipment, be it dumbell, barbells or treadmills. But it is not yet packed with people when I was there as it is still very early in the morning when I shoot the picture.
This is exactly the kind of Hotel I love to go with my family! it is not so close to all the noise, but still accessible and offering all kinds of entertainment options!
Thanks for your comment, I am sure your children would love the bowling center and the movie cinemas!
Lovely. The place is packing with everything. While the entertainment sections are a given satisfaction, I really like the room you had and the private recreation areas. I’d be glad to stay here on my next visit to Vegas, I may almost never come out though, haha!
Thank you for your comment. I do hope you do enjoy this hotel if you ever book here. One drawback is the hotel may look a bit old fashion but everything is still pretty new and well maintained.
Sounds like you found some fun places to visit. I enjoy trying new restaurants because the food in Vegas is so good!
Usually food in casino offer good price and not bad too. One thing everyone should do in Las Vegas is to try out their “buffet”!
Important thing, how is the WiFi in that hotel? haha, I heard that data is really expensive, hence this is pretty important for us travelers!
You can access free wifi in South Point Hotel Las Vegas. I have subsribde the mobile data for 30 days only cost about SGD $35-40.
This hotel got everything you need! I would loooove to go to Vegas one day. It looks amazing!
Las Vegas is really a great place to visit. You have the casino and nearby attractions such as Grand Canyon West Rim. Really interesting desert place to visit. Beware it is very dry when you are in LV.
Beautiful review. Lovely pictures and it seems like you must have had lots of fun on this trip. It’s good to know that the hotel is away from the noisy streets. Families with kids always appreciate that. Great post, thanks for sharing x
Thanks for your comment. Love how it is away from the city as the traffic is better compare to the Strip. We are still very nervous to drive in the busy street in the Strip Las Vegas because the driver seats is at the different side.
wow, that’s a huge hotel with the travelator!
It is a very huge hotel so travelator is there to help guests or people who is less mobile.
Casino hotels in Vegas are always fully loaded! Super cool they gave you coupons for your stay. I’ve actually never heard of South Point because we always stayed in The Strip. But, for future reference… this makes a great place to stay!
People usually stay at the Strips and not many people know about South Point. It is more popular mong the local American. These day not many hotel giving away coupons to use in the hotel and I am glad South Point still do. It has some free drinks and good deals for the buffet and other entertainment too. Sure it helps you save a lot if you use these coupon vouchers.
I like the fact this hotel is off the strip, inexpensive and family friendly. Everything including movie theatres is right at your fingertips!
Thanks for your comment. This hotel really offer cheaper price but facilities as good as the one in the Strip. Not many people know about this actually!
When I come upon a hotel like this, I think, “score!“ It is wonderful when you can get all the amenities of the hotel on the strip, less the crowds and the traffic, and the price. What an excellent value!
Thanks for your comment. South Point Las Vegas is really the hotel for family with children as it has almost everything in it and the price is so much cheaper than the one in the Strip.
I’m always amazed by how enormous hotels in Vegas are – where else would you find a movie theater and bowling alley within the hotel? Looks like a great place for families looking for an option off the strip.
Thanks for your kind comment. It is my first time to stay in such enormous hotel. After all, we are in Las Vegas and I guess it is only happen in Vegas.
What an amazing hotel. I have never heard let alone see, a theater in a hotel. Great place to stay
Thanks for your kind comment. The theater is really big which has up to 16 movies theaters.
This hotel looks amazing. Las Vegas is somewhere I really want to visit
Yes, you sure will love Las Vegas, quite an eye opening desert city!
Wow so much to do in one hotel! I really love the bowling and poker area! Can’t wait to visit sometime
You are right, the bowling center is huge with many lanes and good snacks. It is a nice place for family. Adults can go for poker machines 🙂
