We have been coming to Las Vegas for 25+ years for vacations and we usually stay off the Strip where it is a bit more quiet. This time we elected to use my IHG points and stay closer to the Strip...
points well spent !
The facilities are clean, the 1 bedroom suite we stayed in was much larger than similarly-priced rooms you will find on the Strip, and the full kitchen is ideal for anyone who wants to save some money by preparing their own meals. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook/serve simple meals. Although we don't cook while on vacation, the fridge was used for snacks, water and other 'essential' beverages... no need to fill up a cooler with ice every day :D
We didn't try the on site restaurant (Gold Mine Bar and Grill), but the prices seemed reasonable - from the menu we had in our room.
The Linq and High Roller are approximately a 6 minute walk from the security gate just off of Koval; we stayed in building 19 which is farther from the main entrance, so add another 5 minutes to your walk.
The pools are open until midnight (we stayed in May), and we enjoyed having a couple of cold ones next to the pool after the sun went down.
The only complaint we had during our stay was the first night we got to the hotel. We arrived just after 10:30PM and when we came to our room we heard kids at the pool screaming at the top of their lungs. Our room overlooked one of the pools and we saw 3 or 4 pre-teens playing loudly in the water. We realized that this had nothing to do with the Holiday Inn, but had everything to do with the 2 sets of parents who were at the pool supervising their unreasonably loud children... It doesn't matter where you go, there is always someone who thinks this behavior is 'cute'.
Overall, our stay was quiet. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and well kept. It is walking distance to the Strip but far enough away to escape from the crowds and noise. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will definitely be staying at this location again.
