Does anyone know of a cheap hotel off the strip in Vegas?

My husband and I are finally going to Vegas. This will be my first time there. We really don’t need to stay in a big fancy casino and we will be getting a rental car during our stay. I have looked into a few places but the reviews I’ve been reading haven’t really helped. I’m looking into the Best Western McCarran now and the price is good but the reviews are not. We have already searched every place you can think of online so please do not answer with a web sight. I am just asking to see if anyone has personally stayed in a place they would recommend. Any advice you can give me on where to stay would be greatly appreciated. Like I said, we really don’t need anything fancy as we don’t plan on spending much time in our hotel.

  1. We stayed in a place called, Wild West, or Wild Wild West, it was off the strip a few blocks, but had it’s own casino, it was the cheapest we could find.

    This is one question I know I can answer well. I travel to Vegas from Los Angeles at least 4 times a year. My last trip was in October and I stayed at the Golden Nugget. It is right off Fremont Street near the Stratosphere(the hotel that looks like the space needle) The best way to book a room is Priceline because you can bid on your room. Start really low,like $50. Then they tell you that’s low try another 10 bucks and you’ll get it. The rooms are nice,clean,and quiet. The best thing is their amazing pool. It’s a shark tank with waterfalls and a 3 story waterslide. At night it is beautiful. Room service is affordable. They have a buffet that is amazing plus 3 or 4 specialty restaurants and a casino that somehow doesn’t wreak of cigarette smoke. Stay away from the slots in the front lobby area they are all losers but the slots in the back of the main casino I won a lot on. The entertainment sucks but there is a shuttle bus for $5 for the day that takes you anywhere on the strip. You can check out the amazing pool on the Golden Nugget website but don’t book your room there. You can get it cheaper on priceline. Have fun!

  4. Three years ago when I was looking to move here were Excalibur and Circus Circus (and a few others that no longer exist). Stay away from the Motel 6 and America’s ‘Best’ on Tropicana by Hooters….. dirty, noisy, and an unsafe feel.

    There are lots of “Weekly & Beyond” rental places that are actually a studio apt for $200 a week give or take. Most have pools, work out room & kitchen(some have dishes, etc!)
    Call Seigal Suites or look in the apt guide(a national free publication w/web site – not sure of the web address) There’s Harbor Island(or might have been bought by Seigal) that is a 3 minute walk from the Hard Rock.

  6. Okay, first off, you don’t need to rent a car (save your money) you can take a taxi, or walk, everything is pretty close, people walk all over the place in LV.

    Secondly, you can stay at one of those fancy hotels, for very little, as they often have deals. If you see a hotel that you like, sign up on their web site (they will send you specials). Also, try the Paris Hotel, of the hard rock. you have find what you’ll pay for the best western, to be the same price. Also try, circus circus.

    have fun.

    Also if it’s your first time, just a little FYI, When you are in the casino. You get free drinks, Yep, a beer or whatever you want. Just tip the gal. Go to the MGM Grand and see the White tigers, Walk to strip. Don’t forget your camera.
    Below is a web site for your research, there are a ton of hotels, look how cheap some are, and if you want a better deal, go during the week.

  7. There’s a Motel 6 on Tropicana just east of the MGM Grand.Basically on the same property there’s a Super 8 on Koval I’ve stayed at both many times w/ no problems.
    I’m one of those” just give me a bed” kind of guys that has no use for big and expensive hotels

  8. Last time I was in Vegas I stayed at the Tropicana which is on the end of the strip. We bid for our hotel on priceline and got it for about $100 a night. It was a nice place and the cheapest we could find on the strip. The Tropican wasn’t too fancy but it was a lot of fun! I have not stayed anywhere off the strip so I can not give any advice for that, just make sure it is in a good neighborhood because some of the areas can be a little shaky.

  9. The El Cortez is cheap hotel/casino. It’s on Freemont St. You can look it up at any of the travel sites.They give you a good deal on the flight & hotel for one good price. There is also one more alternative. Motel 6. I stayed 2 different times at the one on Boulder Hwy(right next door to the Boulder Station Casino. They have a couple more Motel6’s also. I like that one,because it is out a little ways from everything . (What I mean from the strip)There is another Motel 6 on Tropicanna.,just a short ways from the strip,if you like that. There is another one,but I can’t remember right offhand where it’s located. Hope this helps. Have a really good vacation! & Win Big Good Luck!

  11. Hooters is inexpensive (just behind MGM Grand). Also, most downtown hotels (ie Binions, Plaza, El Cortez, Four Queens) are good if you’re on a budget.

  12. Trust me, you want to spend your money for a nice hotel on the strip!!

    You can get cheap rooms for like $100 a night at the not so big hotels like the Monte Carlo or Excalibur that are still on the strip. You’re close to all the casinos and wont need a car or hardly need a taxi.
