Blue Moon Resort for Gay Men Rating: 2.5 Pearls
Las Vegas, Nevada, United States

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • A clothing-optional gay-owned and operated hotel for gay men
  • Standard rooms are spcaicous
  • Steam room, showers, and locker room available for guests' use
  • Outdoor pool with hot tub and waterfall grotto has a peaceful scene
  • Free Wi-Fi and parking
  • Other freebies include breakfast, Sunday barbecues, and coffee, tea, and fruit all day
  • Movie room for screenings

Cons

  • Hotel sits next to I-15 on a somewhat gritty block; nothing is within walking distance
  • Some traffic noise reaches certain rooms
  • Rooms have dated tube-style TVs and tired tile bathrooms
  • Few on-site amenities; no fitness center or bar

Bottom Line

The Blue Moon Resort for Gay Men is just that: a clothing-optional hotel for gay men, and there doesn't seem to be another hotel in Las Vegas quite like it. A budget property, it doesn't quite measure up to other hotels in the area that offer more modern rooms, but most guests agree it's still a good value for the money. Amenities include a steam room with lockers and a movie room, free continental breakfast, and a free weekly barbecue. Patrons range in age from young to old, and the atmosphere is casual -- expect to see nude men by the pool. Rooms are clean and comfortable with large beds, but they have dated bathrooms and tiny tube TVs. Gay men who want to be among other gay men will find this hotel very welcoming/

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Secluded location with an active pool and Sunday barbecue scene that draws guests and locals

Blue Moon Resort for Gay Men is housed in an unassuming plain white building, but the interior is sleek and modern. Framed photographs and colorful furnishings liven it up. There's a great pool scene, and a mix of young and old hang out and mingle at all hours of the day and night. The pool has floating devices for lounging and play. Guests seem to enjoy the hot tub with its waterfall grotto. A Sunday barbecue offers a great atmosphere and is free for guests while locals can purchase a day pass to join the party. It's become one of the most popular weekly gay gatherings in town. Both the pool and hot tub are open 24 hours a day, which can be a nice plus after a night out on the town.

 Location

Less than three miles from the Vegas Strip on a secluded street in a somewhat gritty neighborhood

Located less than three miles from the Las Vegas Strip, the hotel sits next to the I-15 in a somewhat gritty are on a secluded block. It sits alongside another hotel and a public transportation vehicle yard. The area is quiet, aside from the I-15 traffic, and there's really nothing within walking distance. The Las Vegas Strip is a 30-minute hike through a gritty area but is an easy cab ride.

 Rooms

Rooms are clean and comfortable with large beds, but they're dated with minimal decor

Rooms are larger than average and clean with basic and comfortable furnishings, but they could use an update, especially the tube-style TVs. Beds are spacious, and showers and tubs are also large. Lighting is somewhat dim in the rooms, but the Wi-Fi connection is strong. Rooms feature Keurig coffeemakers with 10 flavors of coffee. Some traffic noise from the I-15 can be heard in some of the rooms, but it's not a major distraction. Guests can request rooms that open directly onto the pool, but those go quickly and require advance booking, and bear in mind that the 24-hour pool scene can make those rooms noisy too.

 Features

Free continental breakfast, steam room with lockers, pool, and grotto, Sunday barbecue

A continental breakfast with cereals, muffins, bagels, oatmeal, juices, yogurt, and coffee is free here, and there's also a steam room and movie room. The hotel hosts a popular free barbecue for guests on Sundays at the pool, which also draws many locals. The 24-hour pool scene means the party can go on all night.

 Bottom Line

The Blue Moon Resort for Gay Men is just that: a clothing-optional hotel for gay men, and there doesn't seem to be another hotel in Las Vegas quite like it.
