I would say it all depends on the price and the room type. If all prices were the same, I would take Bill's over a standard Flamingo and Harrah's room because of the location. However, if you can get a GO Room at a reasonable price it's worth a few extra bucks.

Who's going?When? Age, and what features do you like in a moderate hotel. Here's why-

-Bills, dark, small no pool. The place is cool, its a step back in time, with big rooms, but its not high class. Location and access to the strip cant be beat! 3 guys place!

-Flamingo- Old rooms primarily, decent casino, location also great. Pools are great as are the grounds. Older crowd, familes

-The pool is the old Holiday Inn pool from the 1970's so not much there. The casino is a hodge podge and some like it, i dont. The rooms appear to have been remodeled recently but they are small. Also families and older mid-west slot crowd.

With your limited info, take the least expensive of the three.

All in good location. All are decent, value properties comparing basic rooms. Harrah's & Flamingo with the nicer casinos. Bill's better for easy in and out from room to strip.

You don't specify when you're going or if a pool is important. Bill's uses Flamingo's pool which is one of the nicer ones.

Harrahs or Bills, definitly not Flamingo. The standard rooms at bills and harrahs are much better than the flamingo. Harrahs has a starbucks which is nice and fairly decent food options. bills is alot of fun to gamble at but i think i would choose harrahs. we liked our stays at both properties

I'd skip the standard rooms at Flamingo, but if you can get the new FAB or even a GO room within your budget take it.

If you will be cramming many guys into the room, the Bill's rooms are a bit bigger I believe (at least mine had a LOT of open space in it, but I was at end of hallway).

Bally's might be in your price range too actually & their rooms would be larger also.

As far as any dining or gaming, you are so close with the 3 of them - can be from one to the other in 1 minute to 5 minutes.

I just checked out of Harrah's this morning. Stayed in a classic room which I believe is the cheapest. It was great remodeled, perfect location. Very pleased. We liked the look of the flamingo, pool area looked great. I wouldn't stay at Bills, too small, seemed old. Liked playing in the casino but not to stay at. All are in a great location. Harrah's had a good brunch buffet and a Starbucks inside was def convenient in the morning.

I would pick them in this order

Harrah's has great nightlife, food choices & a fun atmosphere casino.

Flamingo especially the GO room are very modern + has a great pool + it has Margaritaville which is a fun place to go.

Bill's for old style Vegas small but meets your needs.

Harrahs is my fav. Nicest rooms & resort overall

Flamingo classic rooms are very worn; we were disturbed by hallways cleanliness issues (not taken care of for days) & this has been a trend (based on reviews) for years; GO room was kinda cool, Harrahs rooms generally more spacious. DH--who isn't the worlds best housecleaner--was so grossed out he won't stay again. Definitely the nicest pool.

Bills--I like the casino tho it tends to be smokey. No safes in rooms.
