Overnight RV Parking is OK, at least unofficially. Read reports.
RV Parking and Camping Information
We've seen security drive by multiple times, but so far I have seen no one issued one of the stock notices that they have been putting on RVs for years. My reading of the "No overnight parking" status listed on the main Casino Camper web site is that it was an over-reaction by one individual to such a notice. As always, they want you to look parked, not camped. That means no slides extended or jacks down, and it should go without saying that chairs, BBQs and the like should remain stowed.
Please remember that all these hotels must retain some semblance of compliance with local health codes and ordinances, and thus must avoid even the appearance of condoning living in the parking lot. Bottom line: parking is legal, camping is not. Don't make the hotel or casino have to explain this to you -- help them out by appearing parked, not camped. And if you press them to give you "permission" ahead of time, understand that you may force their hand into saying "no" -- for all they know, you're a county official testing their response."

I don't know how strictly they enforce this, but that seems to be their policy. They never did knock on the door, and didn't leave a paper until after 9AM following my overnight stay.
Some quotes from the letter:
"If you are not registered in the hotel or fail to answer a page in the casino regarding your vehicle, or fail to register the vehicle with Orleans Security Management it may be Towed and impounded immediately without further notice at your cost."
"All Oversize Vehicles must check in with The Orleans Security Department on arrival".
Stayed at The Orleans, Las Vegas for 3 nights Oct 1-3. The guards were very friendly and accommodating. There were, at least, 3-6 other RVs plus myriad OTR trucks parked there each night.
A few things to add to the Pat's report. The lot is very big, well marked and right across from the arena. There were 50 - 60 trucks and RVs parked each of the nights we stayed there. None of the trucks had their engines running. Whether this is a casino policy or if it was just because the weather was perfect, I don't know but it was great for sleeping. All of the RVs with slide out extended or levelers down had notes in the morning but we were not tagged.
This casino is huge. You can get to the casino by going in the door marked ticket sales. Remember your path - we got lost every time! There are nine restaurants. We ate at both buffet and the Mexican restaurant. Both were good.
