The first hotel you stayed at in Vegas

My first visit to Vegas I drove in from LA. We stayed at the Hacienda which at the time was out in the boonies. Not even sure it is still there.

For nostalgia it would be fun to see where others "started" out.

I stayed in a couple of Strip motels 1st, plus in a camper at Lake Mead. But the 1st real Vegas hotel I stayed in was Sahara. This was very common for those from N. California, because most of us had already been to Sahara at Lake Tahoe.

My wife introduced me to Vegas. She had been going for a few years and before she agreed to marry me I had to love Vegas :)
