Hey guys, can you give me some help here? I'm headed to Las Vegas in early November and am trying to decide on a hotel. Since I'm on a limited budget, I'd appreciate the names of some moderately priced hotels located within walking distance of the Strip. No Bellagio required, just a fairly spacious clean room in a well-kept welcoming hotel. Maybe I'm asking for an impossible combination, so please give me some suggestions. Giving pros and cons would be helpful, too. Thanks in advance, all you Baedekers and Michelin Guides!

The following site http://www.cheapovegas.com helped me a ton on my first few trips to Vegas visiting a super duper good friend of mine. You might want to check out Terriables (sp) or Imperial Palace. I'd avoid Circus Circus if you don't care for kids. But the cheapest rooms and probably the best gaming odds are found in downtown Vegas. I prefer this area over the strip because of the better odds, loose slots and usually no kids oh and of course the cheaper rooms. Plus people in dt Vegas I've found to be a little nicer and not so much into putting on an act on what they really aren't. Also BEFORE you book any hotel please check out its reviews on http://www.tripadvisor.com Just like hiring escorts you want to know what you are getting into first. I have to warn you though take some of those reviews with a grain of salt.

I stayed off the strip for the first time last year and found it no big deal. I stayed at The Orleans about 5 blocks off strip. They have a free shuttle to the strip every 30 minutes. Very reasonable. My king room was clean, spacious with a sitting area and sofa. I enjoyed it for 1/3 what a strip hotel would have cost.

You need to consider:

1. Weekend vs. weekday. Friday and Saturday nights are always substantially more expensive than the rest of the days, irrespective of the hotel.

2. Conventions or other events. If there's something big going on in town during your stay, you'll have a hard time getting a good price at any hotel on any day.

 

That said, if you can stay off strip, consider the South Point (formerly South Coast.) Quite a ways south of the south end of the strip, but a farily new property with lots of amenities.

Boy is that true! Vegas is more seasonal than NYC.

 

If the town is dead, you can get suites at Luxor for $50. If the rodeo is in town (or CES or any other big convention), you'll play hell to get HoJo downtown for less than $200. And they're scheduling more and more conventions all the time.

I agree with all the off-strip advice, but note that there's "just off strip" and there's "way off strip".

 

If you end up at one of the properties (and they're very nice!) in Henderson or Summerlin, you've gone way off strip and getting to the strip will be a PITA and expensive.

And they might be sched. more conventions down in Vegas if Cook county (Chicago) raises it's sales tax to 11% :O This would be the highest sales tax for any major city in America! If this tax is passed, right now it is on hold pending further debate and what not I would expect a few more conventions moving to Vegas.

Great deals are available if you combine air fare and hotel. Most from Southwest Airlines. There are usually some travel agents who specialize in LV advertising in your newspaper. Call and ask for the cheapest hotels. Riviera, Circus Circus, Stratisphere are some of the cheapest on the Strip because they are a little run down and less glamerous than the newer ones. After the swimming pool closes in Oct, the Hard Rock Hotel is cheap. A couple of blocks from the strip but close to the "fruit loop", a collection of gay bars.

Circus Circus has exactly two things going for it, both of them sporadic: cheap rooms and humpy circus performers in spandex. The former is not always available, and the latter is often long in the tooth.

 

I've stayed there because of a property they operate BEHIND the casino called Circus Circus Manor. It's a row of 4 or 5 buildings set up like a motel. You literally park right outside the door rather than the 5 miles away in most of the casinos. I was there for business and running all over Vegas, so having the car easily available was a plus.

 

They are VERY spartan (but clean) rooms, with no room service, but they serve as a place to crash for the night. For ~$49.00 not a bad deal if they suit your needs.

 

Also note that visitor access to the Manor rooms is quite easy. So if you can get one for ~$50, it can be a good location for a quickie. ;-)

 

BUT....

 

The casino itself is very small (by Vegas standards) and ALWAYS crowded, mostly with loud and annoying ankle-biters. I always feel like I'm wading through Lilliputians. And last time I was there, I stood in line for 2 1/2 hours just to check in.

 

NOT RECOMMENDED FOR VACATION TRAVEL!
