The location of the hotel was wonderful, had very easy access to the Paris Hotel (its sister property), and was right across the street from the Bellagio, Ceasars Palace, etc. For the location and ease of getting around alone, I would recommend this hotel.
The room itself wasn't spectacular, but how much time do you really spend in it anyway? It was nice but could have used some refurbishing (as in cleaning the windows and some paint). It was a big room with two queen-size beds and a large bathroom. The view was spectacular (even through the dirty glass)! We could see the Bellagio water fountain and light show and had a great view down the Strip.
The rest of the hotel was quite nice. They had some construction going on down in their shopping promenade, but the stores that were open were nice (expensive, but what isn't?). They had a great margarita bar in the back of the casino and a fun "sidewalk" cafe.

What is interesting to note is that Bally''s probably has the safest features in as much as fires go, as it used to be the MGM Grand, which had a devastating fire some years ago.
They have a couple of eateries on site, and the one we used was the Sidewalk Café which served a la carte, for breakfast anyway. Service is prompt and friendly, but don''t look for any bargains. One morning, we went across the street to have breakfast, and it was easily 50% less than it would have been at Bally''s for identical menus.
We took advantage of the pool facilities one morning, and the heat was deadly. There were masses of near naked bodies all over flirting with the rays, and I wondered how they could withstand it. What I found refreshing were the little
step-down alcoves at the pool, where you can put your legs in the water, and keep somewhat cool. I did that while Chuck was braver and took to the water. They do serve beverages and they will be served to you by sweet looking young things. If you want heavier fare, you need to get up and go across the area to the other side where they have an indoor-outdoor café with a limited, fast food menu. The tuna salad was OK. Actually, the pool area at the Flamingo hotel is so much more attractive and interestingly laid out.
Since we were there during the Memorial Day Weekend, the place was sold out.
One of the advantages of being at Bally''s is that it has a monorail stop, and that''s a great feature, especially if you don''t relish 107 degree weather. Not being compulsive gamblers, Chuck and I played some slots and lost. Also, the Paris Hotel and Casino is easily accessed through a corridor on the casino floor.

I really enjoyed the casino at Bally's. It was not very big compared to the others, but I liked the intimate feel of it. It was never crowded during my stay, but always had enough people to keep it lively. Because of this, it was very easy to jump into any table game you wanted.

Bally's is a sister resort to Paris, Caesars, and the Flamingo so you could charge in those locations also. This made it very convenient. There are also walkways at the corner by Ballys that made crossing to other locations safe and easy. You could enter the Paris shops through an indoor access that gave you all the access to the Paris facilities without paying the higher cost of the room there. Our room was very spacious and had a wonderful view of the Eiffel Tower and we could also see a portion of the Ballagio fountains.
