Sahara Hotel & Coupon Books

Hi,

Me & a friend have just booked for a week in Vegas in July staying at the Sahara. I was wondering if anyone who has been recently can advise us on what kinda things to expect/go for/avoid etc. I also read you get a coupon book upon arrival at the hotel, does anyone know what discounts this includes? Or of any other coupon/discount passes/books etc that would be better value!

This is our first ever time to Las Vegas (in fact our first time in the US) so we're going completely blindly.

Allyberry xoxo

Why the Sahara?

Not trying to be rude, but that would be 1st on my list of thing to avoid.

We're staying at the Sahara coz we're both on a tight budget. And neither of us have particularly high standards when it comes to hotels and I've probably stayed in worse in the past. It was the cheapest one on the strip so it suited our budgets best if not our taste.

And we're British and so flying from the UK, which makes it more expensive.

Sahara is in a poor location & not good to stay during the summer because most of the towers have central a/c so you have no control of room temp.

Hey but if you like long walks & 90 degree rooms stay there ;)

I agree with other posters. The Imperial is very inexpensive and dead central. Much better choice and you will have a much better first time experience. See if you can change it.

I strongly disagree with the anti-Sahara sentiments posted here. It is a decent older casino resort. It is probably far above some of the places that you have stayed at in the past.

However, location-wise, I agree -- the Sahara is at the northern-most end of the Strip. The walk down from Sahara to Wynn/TI/Mirage in the heat of the summer would not be fun; if you want to walk down to the Trop or Luxor or Mandalay Bay (not that I think there is any reason to go that far south), it would be long and hot -- unless you want to spend money on cabs or stand around waiting for the bus. (I understand that there are good values on all-day bus passes (are there any multi-day bus passes?))

I personally would rate Sahara well above Imperial Palace, except for the location.

I liked it , it was an old school vibe had some luck there. As far as the coupon book they used to have discounts for all their shows but now then only have one show. I know if you sign up for a players card you can get dinner buffet for 8.99- its not that great -pretty average.As far as transportation, its connected to the monorail you can get a three day pass for 28 bucks which will zoom you up and down the strip to all the action.

I forgot about the monorail -- there is a station at Sahara, and that might solve the transportation issue.
