We didn't choose Bally's per se, the accommodations were part of a package deal that we arranged. We chose the package based soley on price and the central location of Bally's on the Strip. We had a spacious room with two queen sized beds, a couch, TV, dresser, end tables - the usual hotel amenities. The room was clean and well decorated, if not somewhat dated. Bally's is one of the older hotels on the strip and with new hotels going up and renovations happening everywhere, the rooms weren't the latest and greatest that Vegas had to offer at the time of our trip.Like most hotels in Vegas, Bally's is a large property. Pay close attention to your surroundings because if you're inclined to have a drink or two you might find it a bit confusing finding your way back to your room at the end of the night.The slot machines at this hotel weren't the "loosest" machines in town, but paid out at a reasonable rate. And while the waitresses would always bring a free drink upon request, unless you're a big tipper they didn't come back too frequently. The hotel staff were all friendly, accommodating and helpful.The show Jubilee is the main attraction at Bally's and has been for several years. Although it didn't appeal to us, so we didn't bother going to see it. Judging from the advertisements throughout the hotel, it looked like the quintessential "show-girl" review. If you're looking for comfortable, reasonably priced accommodations, and are more interested in venturing out than sticking around the hotel then Bally's is a decent choice. Especially for it's central location on the Strip.
