Unfortunately, most Las Vegas hotels now charge resorts fees. They are not part of the final total listed on your reservation and collected directly by the hotel at check-out. Resort fees often cover features you will want to have, such as wireless internet access, 800 number calls, fitness center access, newspapers, bottled water, hotel pool access, etc. The fees are charged nightly per room and are not dependent on the number of guests staying.

You cannot opt-out of paying them, even if you don’t want any of the added perks they provide. The amount of a resort fee is the same if you book directly with the hotel, or through a discount travel site. Below is a list of hotel resort fees and what it includes. In addition, there is a 12 percent tax on the fees. For your convenience, we also include a list of hotels that do not charge resort fees. We try our best to keep things updated, but please be aware that fees can change without notice. Please contact us or comment below if you find any mistakes.

This list of hotels and what they charge when it comes to unavoidable resort fees was put together by the editors of Las Vegas Direct, your source for getting the absolute lowest hotel rates in Vegas.

    I’m wondering how they get away with this. Do any other towns in the US charge a resort fee?

  • Roger

    I don’t see the Casino Royale listed. Last I checked it had no resort fee.

  • Darrel

    We quit going to Vegas because of this added fee. Other friends are doing the same as us and going to casinos in Alberta. No hidden fees and no big money exchange

  • Andy Beal

    We were looking at going to Vegas next year for 14 days, six of us and nearly booked, but then we saw something about a resort fee and would have cost us and extra $2,400!!!. So we didn’t bother, and am now looking at going somewhere else.

  • Seth Balaban

    Primm Valley, Buffalo Bill’s, and Whiskey Pete’s now charge $12.00 per day, (which includes tax).

    • MeWynne

      And Whiskey Pete’s is filthy and stinks of cigarettes everywhere!

  • Jennifer

    I work in Orlando, FL and alot of our hotels charge this idiotic fee. I’m sorry but, if I don’t use said services, I shouldn’t pay this. I work in a hotel that charges this fee and I hate the arguments I get from guests. I wish I didn’t have to charge you but, you are in a “resort area”. 😈

  • James

    Ever stayed near Disneyland?…. Those places charge a resort fee, just cause you are close enough to see the fireworks… Vegas isn’t a comp town anymore, because the money is coming from entertainment now, not gaming

  • ilene

    My son and daughter-in-law just returned from Vegas and said they had to pay a resort fee when the pool was closed and the weather freezing. I had planned on going to Vegas in Feb. but because of the resort fee will forget this trip. I’ll go to a place where there are no such fees.

  • Jeffrey

    Resort Fees–JUST SAY NO PEOPLE!!

    The STUPID public just keep paying this RIPOFF fee!
    Vote with your wallet and stay at a resort with no resort fee.

    Do I make myself clear?

  • Debra Decker

    Buffalo Bills charges…

    “This hotel charges a $12.00 nightly resort fee per room collected by the hotel at arrival.”

    Just tried to book it until I saw the fees.

  • DaninMCI

    To make matters worse. Most hotels are also now charging for parking. So say you book a room for $200. They add a $30 resort fee then a $20 parking fee per day. Plus LV has super high taxes which you know they tax you on this stuff also. No reason to go there anymore. It’s not comp food or rooms much anymore. I go there on business on a regular basis and I don’t think I’d take a vacation there. It’s mostly red necks or low class city dwellers that come into town to party and drink. They walk up and down the strip like tourist that have no place to go. I hate to be negative but when you add junk fees like these I’m out.

  • willie

    yes the resort fees are bs. they advertise a low low rate and you book it then when you get there the rate has almost doubled. It used to be the off strip hotels didn’t charge this but they have jumped on this rip off band wagon. even places like Arizona charlies are now charging this fee. What perks do they have? free local calls? who dosent have a cell phone these days.

  • LD

    I was told that this system of charging “resort fees” allows hotels to advertise more competitive (lower) rates, but it’s really BS because we wind up paying a higher rate just the same. The kicker is when the pool or the gym are closed for whatever reason, they still stick you with full fees! These days nobody really needs to use a hotel phone or read a newspaper, so those things are pretty useless. As far as a pool, a gym, a business center and wi-fi service, it’s my opinion that a guest who pays for a room should be entitled to use ALL of the available amenities, including hotel parking, without having to pay anything extra. That’s how it used to be and how it should continue to be! And some of these places are nowhere near being anything close to a “resort”, and yet they charge “resort fees”. The hotels are biting off their noses to spite their faces with these charges, and it is already affecting visitor attendance to LV.

  • John

    When we started coming to Vegas we stayed at the Golden Nugget. Resort fee was $5.95. We stopped staying there when it reached $15. The fee didn’t include the in room coffee maker. If you broke the seal on the Kuerig box you got charged $10. I laugh at the free local phone calls, etc included with most resort fees. Everyone has their own phone. The only reason I would use the in room phone is to call down to the front desk.

  • Linda

    This is just another cash grab, this is why I am not going back to Vegas, put all the fees up front. We didn’t find out about this fee until we checked into our hotel.

  • Cosmo

    It should be called a screw you over fee because that’s exactly what they are doing. I wouldn’t care as much if it was included in the price of the room. Here is your total price, but to call it a resort fee is a joke, especially if you don’t use the items listed. I never once used anything on that list and refuse to pay an extra $30/night! So, they DON’T get my business and I let them know why. I used to go every other month but now go rarely and to places that don’t charge the fees. Until you get them in the pocket book they have no incentive to do the right thing.

  • Ron steele

    Next thing they’ll charge for room toilet usage. Vegas greed is out of hand.

  • Laurie Dee

    I just stayed at the Fairfield Inn by Marriott at Disneyland-there were NO resort fees. I was a 7 minute stroll through to the bag check at the park. I was in a resort area. But there were no resort fees tacked on to the check out statment. I went to Vegas twice in 2016, but will now travel elsewhere. I am saying no to resort fees.

  • Cindy

    The resort fee at the Golden Nugget is now $27.50 plus tax a night

    • lvd

      We have updated it. Thanks!

  • Steven Park

    I have just checked out of Flamingo Hotel after 2 nights stay and got charged for $63.00 extra resort fee. It was freezing cold in LV during my stay and I didn’t use anything there except the front exit door. This is so outrageous and I refused to go to LV any more. I heard they will be charging for parking as well. What a riff off!!!!! No thank you!

  • Bill Turner

    I was in Las Vegas in August. At the resort I stayed in they charged a fee of $39.00 they had a clerk that b early spoke english. They are a large casino that had very few players, the minimum was $10. No playing. Fee not justified. Charges for anything you do. I’m not going back to vegas.

  • James Nasium

    It will get worse before it ever gets better. Very difficult to rescind a fee once they get used to collecting it. Once people start going to other destinations with no stupid add on fees will they learn. I just read something about a major US airline that is considering charging for a carry on bag, and extra charge for better placement in preferred overhead storage area. I’d walk before taking that trip.

  • Dee

    Thanks to everyone for posting. It was helpful. Never been to vegas. I was planning to travel there with family but now have to re plan things.

    • Mikey Di

      Ah no, Vegas is worth it. I wouldn’t avoid going there because of these annoying (and expensive) resort fees. The experience of the Strip almost makes the resort fees worth it. Stay in any other city and the “resort fees” are included in the hotel price, which is why the rooms are always over $100+ dollars. You can still get a cheap room in Vegas.

  • Mi Ge

    This all started many years ago with the California energy crisis, the hotels started charging just a few dollars for an energy surcharge. That’s the same time when they turned off all the lights on the Marquis during the daytime that used to be lit 24 hours a day. At that time there was an additional charge for internet of $10 per day or more, but that was it. This Resort fee started when they decided to package the energy charge and give you “free” internet, and next they “included” things like the pool and the gym that were included in the hotel rate as the Resort Fee went up. The additional charge has really gotten out of hand and now some hotels are charging for parking too! It used to be things like the cheap Buffet was to get you in the door, you have to walk past all the slot machines to get there, now everything in Vegas is a profit center. Someone wrote about them eventually charging to use the toilet, I could really see them putting a meter on it and giving you so many flushes per stay as part of the resort fee next. This really is false advertising to advertise a cheap room rate when the Resort fee is sometimes more than the room rate itself. I’m glad that they are web sites like this to at least try and give travelers fair warning. Thank you

  • GeekGurl

    FYI, The Platinum Resort & Spa now charges $23 per day.

  • KN

    I just read every single one of these posts because I just returned from Vegas! Very therapeutic! I stay in Vegas several times a year because we fly from that airport and live far away. We generally have to stay the night before we leave and the night we get back. Due to my flights being delayed on my return trip I literally was in the room to sleep for 5 hours. When I checked in I asked for the fees to be waived and she said I would have to talk to a supervisor in the morning. So I did. I explained that I was there for 5 hours and literally only slept. I did not print out boarding passes, I did not use the shuttle, (which by the way has LIMITED hours of FREE service), I did not use the wi-fi, I did not use the fitness center (between 1:00 AM and 6:00 when I checked in and out) , I did not use the outdoor pool in the middle of the night with 45 degree weather, the parking is FREE if you self-park and I do not drink coffee. It’s like paying for a meal you never ate! Yes, I agree with an earlier post, stay someplace there are no “resort” fees.

    Since retirement Vegas has been part of our “Bucket List” in addition to traveling. We visit the Strip & Downtown about 6-7 times a year. On the Strip the Caesars properties; Harrahs, Flamingo, Ballys, Planet Hollywood, Paris etc. They do have resort fees but waived for “Diamond and Seven Stars” card members. If not for this there would be no reason for our continued “Caesars brand” loyalty. I agree with others it’s a short sighted “money grab”.
    Tied in with our Strip visits are our “DownTown” visits. California, Main Street and Fremont Casinos our “go to” places. NO Resort fees! Support Resort Fee FREE Casinos!

    I stay at the La Quinta airport south and it is very nice highly rated. They will shuttle you down to the strip, no resort fees free very fast wifi and a decent breakfast.

    Whiskey Pete’s also has a $15.00/night resort fee now.

    This also happens at Disneyworld. In the Downtown Disney/Disney Springs hotel area these hotels charge a resort fee also. We stay just outside the gate into Disney Springs and get a cheaper hotel rate and no resort fee for a room we are only going to be sleeping in anyway. It also has free wi-fi. Of course we drive everywhere and do not use the Disney transportation system. I am thinking of returning to Vegas and I am a Harrah’s member so was thinking of staying at one of their properties. That will only happen if I get a free room and only pay for a cheap resort fee if that.
