Order of your favorite Off-Strip Casinos

We want to visit several of the off-strip casinos this visit. I have them separated into two different days but I'm not sure if some are just worth skipping altogether. Please put the following properties in order of the best first down to the least. I realize everyone has different preferences but this will give me an idea of what to perhaps skip if we run out of time. Currently I have them listed in a somewhat circuitous route.

Day 1:

Palace Station





Gold Coast


Day 2:

Sam's Town

Eastside Cannery

Green Valley Ranch

M Resort



Thanks in advance!

I have not visited all of the ones on your list, but I can recommend Red Rock, GVR and M Resort.

I like the Rampart. A real locals place. Clean and bright. Good, fair rules on BJ. Low table mins. Friendly dealers. Usually a lot of fun.

Red Rock is also good. They have a movie theater and an arcade, some good food options. But they kind of pretend to be a strip casino ... glitzy with higher table mins.

It is easy to visit Palms/Rio/Gold Coast(great VP) and even the Orleans since they are so close to each other. If you are going to one- you might as well see them all. Sam's Town is a great locals place (also has great VP) and a nice indoor park/cute laser show. I like Red Rock a lot-and you can also visit Red Rock Canyon while you are there. GVR and Silverton are both nice places that are worth a visit. Everyone raves about M so I would keep it on your list although- to be perfectly honest- I didn't particularly like it when I visited.

The only two I would eliminate are Palace Station and Suncoast.

I am a firm believer that one should visit as many casinos as possible- you never know when something is going to "click" with you- even if others don't like it.

There is so much more to Vegas than the strip/downtown. People are missing out on some great casinos, attractions, restaurants, etc. by just sticking to the strip/downtown.

We made the offstrip run last visit - fun, but really, when you've seen one casino...

Move M/GVR/Red Rock to the top of your list. If you're into buffets, schedule it for a weekday dinner at M.

Palms/Rio/Gold Coast/Orleans can all be visited in the space of a couple hours - I'd shoot for the Voodoo Lounge for early evening drinks, see the silly show in the sky, walk over to Gold Coast and snag a good inexpensive Chinese meal at Ping Pang Pong, then walk up to the Palms. Alternatively, if you're going to be there on Sunday, the Simon Brunch at Palms Place is very good plus there's an LVA coupon for unlimited drinks, then hit the other two. You'll have to drive up to Orleans or take the shuttle from GC. They have a rather good and not too expensive Prime Rib restaurant (closed on Wed & Thur).

Hulk - have been to LV probably close to 100 times and we always get so caught up on playing/partying on the strip or downtown that we're just looking for something new to do. We will be there for 7 days so there is plenty of time and we've seen the strip inside and out. So ... still plenty of time for partying on the strip. :o)

Thanks for all the replies - very helpful. BTW - we play everything but love VP so it looks like Sam's Town is a "must do".

I could not imagine spending a vacation going from casino to casino on strip or off, just not my cup or tea, but everyone is different. Ill put a number next to all of the ones you list in order of my favorite, not sure what Pain is?

Palace Station-12





Gold Coast-9

Eastside Cannery-11

Green Valley Ranch-1

M Resort-2
