need some help from ppl who's been. i need a good place to stay for a good price. i want to be close to the strip. any suggestions?
Best price and best location is Treasure Island... However, it's not very nice (hence the best prices).
My favorite hotels are the Palazzo (on strip) and Cosmopolitan (City Center not Strip, but GREAT hotel with great food and club and very close to strip), both reasonably priced as well, but not as cheap as Treasure Island.
Stayed in Mandalay Bay all last week, and it was alright, better and much more expensive than Treasure Island, but not nearly as good as the other two, and not as good a location as any of them.

Good price is relative. What's the budget?
looking to spend 400 or less. gonna be out there for 5 nights in november for thanksgiving. i've stayed in the luxor but im hoping to get closer to the strip
$400 or less per night?
Or $400 or less total?
Edit: Assume you mean total.. LVH (old Hilton) is nice.. clean rooms, huge sportsbook and that should be under $400

yes 400 total. i can get in and out of the luxor for 5 nights for around 400 but its off of the strip and theres no refrigerator
With that budget I'd say...
Out of those I like the Mirage the best.
Went a month ago and stayed at planet hollywood. If you are a younger person this is the best place to stay hands down.
I don't know what your definition of the "the strip" is, but I would consider The Cosmopolitan to be on the strip.
Stay at the Wynn.. Best hotel in Vegas, no doubt about it, IMO.
Might be to pricey for you though but that's where I have stayed the last 10-15 times i've been there.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
Agree on The Wynn/Encore being the best. I stayed at The Encore and it was better than The Venetian, Palazzo, Bellagio, Vdarra, Aria.
If he stayed at either The Wynn or Encore, he might be able to get 2 nights if he finds a really really good deal.
Stayed at the Flamingo. Nothing special, but it's a good location and cheap room on the strip
Happy days are here again!!!!
Try the Flamingo
Here is what you do.
Go to the Ceasars/Harrahs web site. Sign up for the "Total Rewards Card". (Its just a slot club card, is completely free.) Then go to the Ballys Hotel site. Book a room on that site, using your total rewards card. If he is staying during the week, his room will be around thirty bucks a night. In addition, Caesars and their properties are the only hotels on the strip that do NOT charge the idiotic and downright criminal "resort fee." that Vegas made up a couple years ago. You will pay an additional 20 bucks a night at other hotels in Las Vegas for that fee.
Here is the link to the reward card sign up. Casars hotels in Las Vegas on the strip include Harrahs, Ballys The Flamingo, Planet Hollywood. Ballys is the best deal of those hotels. HUGE rooms, perfect location and the best rates. Its the overall best deal in Las Vegas.
Harrah's Total Rewards let you earn hotel discounts and rewards while playing casino games at any of the Harrah's Las Vegas hotels & casinos, Atlantic City hotels & casinos, or other Harrah's locations throughout the US.
Don't stay at Bally's.
Really? Why is that? The rooms are bigger. the location is the best in Las Vegas, and the pool is actually deep enough to swim in and you can get some of the cheapest, best rooms on the strip.
If you stay at the Mirage, as you suggest, you are going to get smaller rooms on the far end of the strip for at least twice the cost. The Mirage charges a 20 dollar plus a night resort fee, by the way.
I guess it technically it is, but I always considered City Center kind of it's own little thing although still in a really good location with regards to the strip.
Spend the extra $ and stay at the Palazzo. Lagazzi Stadium is by Far best sports book in the country. Have a beer flight at Public House. And go see O!
What's the best place to stay if you are a single guy that just wants to bet on sports for the weekend at the cheapest possible rate?
Does it really matter where you stay? You won't be spending much time in your room I hope.
Because Bally's is a dump.
I'd suggest staying downtown somewhere.
Haha... Has anyone ever been to the Hooters hotel? I've never been, but I'd imagine it's pretty cheap, and surely has a big sports book place. Lol.
i have to go every year
my favorite place to stay due to location is caesars. its right in the middle and you can walk everywhere
i've stayed at a lot of the hotels and there is just not a better spot location wise in my opinion
$50 bet with Rebels10 - Best of 3 Egg Bowls
**the $50 goes to others schools athletics dept**
love the Lagazzi Stadium and totally agree that they are the best anywhere ,,wow
You've clearly never been to Vegas. Unless you're never going to be in your room it does matter. If it didn't Circus Circus would always be booked.
