I had played blackjack here several times during the past few years, but this was our first stay. My wife and I were very impressed with the clean, spacious rooms, the chic decor, and the excellent selection of dining options on-site. We ate twice at Hash House, once at Marinelli's and once at the buffet. All three more than met our expectations. For $10.99, the breakfast buffet was a true bargain. The wait staff at Marinelli's was very attentive, and the food well above average. Hash House delivered as expected. We ordered from the "seniors" menu because we are not massive eaters and found these portion sizes to be more realistic. We always rent a car for our Vegas trips, so the distance to the heart of the strip was only a mild inconvenience. I couldn't find an employee who wasn't proud of the M Resort, from blackjack dealers to front desk staff to restaurant employees. They have every reason to be proud. M is a standout in a very competitive hotel casino market. We will definitely be back.
