Limited Mobility

You are going to Las Vegas for my birthday in Jan. We will be arriving on a Friday morning and leave on Monday morning. We usually stay off-strip and stay twice as long. My birthday is an excuse for this trip but the bigger reason for going is my daughter was in a serious accident early this year. She is now able to walk on her own but tires easily. This is where I need help. We want to stay on the strip this time and not sure what would work best for her. I want her to have easy access to the casino and I want to be able to get to some other casinos without taking a cab. Usually we just go walking all day and you don't think about how far things are. Thank in advance for any help.

I don't know all the particulars, but I know you can rent a scooter and have delivered to your hotel upon arrival. This sounds like the best option for her. Over the years and the several trips we have had to Vegas I have seen many scooters with young ppl to elderly using them, and it seems they scoot around with ease. In general people are very courteous and accommodating.

Hopefully someone that has rented one will chime in with more info. If not, use the search feature and I'm sure there will be threads of recommended companies.

Best wishes to your daughter on her recovery and have a wonderful trip.

I've noticed a trend in the number of college frat boys who use the scooters to get from casino A to casino B. Those boys have absolutely nothing wrong with them other than they are lazy.

Anyway, I agree, a scooter might be exactly what your daughter needs. Have a safe & successful trip! Your daughter will have a blast, I'm sure.

Check out Bill's. The room elevators are right in the casino. It's small & easy to navigate. Just a few steps & you're right on the strip.

Bills or Ballys/Paris might suit you well. If the walking is too much once you get there you can rent a scooter

Most strip hotels have decent accessibility and renting a scooter should see her right.

Slightly off topic, but i hope you all have an amazing time and that your daughter recovers fully (if possible) with time. I think being treated to a trip to Vegas should certainly help keep her spirits up. Have fun!

Absolutely rent a scooter...then you can stay wherever you please since walking wont be an issue. My husband and I both rent scooters because of health issues...it makes the impossible possible...have a great time!

Thank you for the responses. I was trying to stay away from the scooter if possible. She is in her early 20s and we are celebrating the progress of her recovery. I know her muscle strength will improve over the next 3 months but I was looking for convenience if she needed it.

i rented a scooter several times last year while at Ballys, Just went to the Bell desk, and they had them there. I did not reserve in advance. I think most of the hotels have access to them.

Can't remember how much I paid, but for 2-3 days probably would be around 50-70 $$. You should call the hotel you are planning on staying at, and they would be able to help you on that info

I found the scooter to be very Vegas friendly, all hotels have ramps, etc. and I used it also on the monorail. They are easy to use and your daughter will have much more fun and more access to the hotels.

I also would recommend Bally/Paris as they connect with an indoor walkway with shops and restaurants.

Rent a scooter, stay at any property that suits your needs since with the scooter she won't be limited.

arrange the scooter through your hotel concierge if they offer the service.ost major strip properties have many scooters on the property. the cost to you is the same as if you made your arrangements, you have better service and most important, if something does go wrong with the scooter your hotel handles the issue, gives you a new one right away and you don;t have contact the medical supply company on your own and wait for a resolution.

Congratulations on her progress.
