Bottom Line

South Point Casino is a great place to stay if you’re looking for affordable rooms and plenty of activities on-site. The casino has a variety of restaurants, a movie theater, and other amenities. The only downside is that it’s a bit far from The Strip and Downtown.

For optimum, on-site entertainment, visitors to Las Vegas love staying at the South Point Casino. The hotel itself is very close to Silverado Ranch Park so guests who enjoy the outdoors can get their body moving in the park’s recreational area. For those driving into Vegas, there are plenty of gas stations, convenience stores, and food stops to assist you in your travels.  

South Point Las Vegas Hotel Rooms & Suites

The South Point Hotel has over 2,100 premium rooms while the top floor of the hotel features suites only. Guests can choose a room with stunning views of the shimmering Las Vegas strip or relaxing views of the nearby mountain ranges. Premium rooms are oversized and feature 50 inch, 4K televisions and plush bedding. Suites on the top floor range from 800 to 2,500 square feet, offering more space for more people to enjoy a comfortable stay or for you to entertain guests.

The Costa del Sur Spa at South Point Las Vegas is quite impressive, stretching to 40,000 square feet.

Take advantage of the sauna and whirlpool after you receive a customized, unique treatment like the Just for You Facial or Pure Fiji Goddess of the Sun Ritual. Depending on the season, the spa will offer seasonally inspired treatments. For example, in the winter the spa offers treatments with spiced, holiday scents and oils incorporated into the treatment.
