09-22-2014 Room 11009 - checked in at 9:00 pm, went to bed after midnight and thankfully woke up at 2:00 am. Turned on light to get something and found a bug near my pillow. Checked my luggage for bugs, packed and checked out. Of course i killed the uninvited guest first and delivered him to security. Filed out a report; they were quite apologetic, but did not seem very surprised at my report. They called in the manager who refunded all charges.

I was there for my Birthday Aug 22nd Weekend. I came back with a nice little gift from the Rio. Bed Bugs! I found them in my luggage which I put by my bed. Now I brought it home and the biting continued. I am so upset. Wont report - nothing will be done just hope I can work deal with this because I just killed an adult bug. God I am pissed!!!

Stayed at the Rio 4/14/2014 - 4/16/2014. The room we stayed in on the 12th floor was muggy even with the air on. We woke up with small bites but weren't sure if it was from walking around at night. Woke up again with more bites that were itchy and scabby. Called hotel to file a report and they didn't care. I was transferred around and never got a follow up.

I just stayed at the Rio this past Sunday 12/15/13 for one night and this morning my arm was very itchy and it was burning. I went to take a look when I see about 15 bites on me! I bagged everything and now I'm super paranoid? What if I brought them home????!

The hotel is filthy and moldy. Bed bugs thrive in this climate. They started letting dogs stay in the rooms now so you can expect flees as well. The front desk doesn't care and threatens to remove you from the property if you start to raise your voice if you want another room.
This happened in July during a poker tournament.
I can imagine the kitchens in the hotel would be like as well.

I was in Las Vegas for a class reunion from July 12-14, 2013. I came home and had more than 50 bedbugs cluster bites. I had to go to my dermatologist who prescribed a hydrocortisone cream and an antibiotic cream since some of the bites got infected from too much scratching on my part. I stayed in room 343.
I called the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino customer service to report the issue that room 343 was infested with bed bugs. I spoke to an Officer Bramlit who then transferred me to another
person named Officer Christina Smart. Ms Smart took down my info and report and informed me that she will file the report. I asked her what happens next and she said she'll make sure they check the room and I wanted to know how to follow up to make sure that the room was indeed checked and treated so that the next guest doesn't suffer like me. She gave me a phone # to call 702-777-2350 and that was it.

I stayed for a conference February 26-28. The hotel looks fine from the outside, but they don't take care of it and it shows in the rooms. Mold in the bathroom, grey sheets that should be white and general dirtiness. I didn't see a bedbug in my room, but all the signs are there. Blood on a pillow case and low on the walls.
They have a problem.
When I told the desk, they were totally uninterested.

I stayed at the Rio Nov 17th till Nov 22nd 2012 in the Masquerade tower and found a bug in my bed. I didn't know it was a bed bug till I got home and looked up what they look like . I saved the bug to show to staff and they took the bloody pillow. I killed the bug . They didn't even let me know that it was a bed bug and that they had an infestation in there hotel . The Rio should be held accountable for putting people at risk . I have bites on my back and arms and have suffered with the itchines
s and discomfort still think about this every day its been over 2 weeks I can still see the marks on my body where I was bitten . I've had bad dreams of bugs and keep checking my bed when I feel a hair on my body move I'm so paranoid now and totally bugged out. I'm seeking compensation for this .The Rio knew of there infestation problem and has failed to keep there guests safe .

Brought home a nice infestation of bed bugs. If the room wasn't so fundamentally dirty - there is more to cleaning a room than vacuuming - the bolsters, bedspread and couch were filthy. I wish I had stayed away from the couch and kept my luggage off the floor.
The Rio was unimpressed with my dilemma and completely ignored my report.
Will not stay at a Harrah's hotel again.

Novartis is coming to the Rio on Monday. If I get bed bugs I will look to take legal action on both the rio and novartis since this was known prior to the trip. The last thing my family and I need is this. It could be traumatic.

Stayed Dec. 27-29, 2010 in the Masquerade Tower Room 17007.
Took pictures of the bed bugs because they were clearly crawling across the bed. Called front desk and they said they couldn't do anything about it and just transferred us to another room. Management didn't seem to care that I was extremely paranoid after seeing the bugs and did nothing to reassure me that they would take care of the problem. They said I can file a claim if I want with their security department and that was it.
Traverlers, please make sure you check your mattresses! In the future, I will not be coming back to this hotel again. I'm disappointed in their service or lack of. I was a loyal Rio Customer for 12 years.

We stayed at the Rio 11/09 - 11/14 and did not have any bed bug issues.
We were in the Ipanema Tower room 1513.
Thanks to this website we went prepared. We left our luggage on the tile entry way then took out our flash lights, stripped the bed checked the mattress, sheets, pillows, head boards, drawers and carpet perimeter around the room and found nothing.
It took some time to check out the whole room but the piece of mind was worth it. We still took precautions, we did not unpack and put
anything in the drawers, we hung up all our clothes and put our suitcases on the racks, just in case.

My family and I stayed there from the Oct 12th-14th, 2010 and I got a couple bites, but didn't think anything of it. Til we got back home I was still getting bit. I hope the bugs didn't come home with us. ...I will just have to do some inspection at home.
We should have kept our luggage off the floor and kept it on the luggage holder/table.
