Best Value Hotel on the Strip


Im coming from australia in may for four nights and previously posted a few different ideas however, thinking of going lower in cost and seeing more shows. Can anyone reccomend a reasonably priced (no more than 200 p/n) hotel close to everything...i guess im after amosphere & a good view. Many thanks,

I'll bite...

What I think are reasonably priced hotels, that are on the strip



Barbary Coast

Aladdin (specials oftern as they are renovating)


Mirage sometimes you can get a pretty decent rate

TI sometimes you can get a pretty decent rate

Monte Carlo sometimes you can get a pretty decent rate

New York New York sometimes you can get a pretty decent rate

Just my opinion of clean, affordable and on strip.

Cost varies drastically week to week depending on demand. If any of the 4 nights are weekend, you will pay a huge amount more

Best affordable luxury, check these first;

TI, MonteCarlo, MGM, Luxor, NYNY...older but nice enough; Ballys, Harrahs, Flamingo

More expensive but sometimes go low; Mirage, Paris, Aladdin, MGM Signature, Mandalay Bay

Cheapies, BIG notch down in ambience; Excalibur, Imp Palace, Hooters

Don't go there; Circus, Frontier, Riviera

Quick walk to strip; Tuscany Suites, Westin Causarina, Platinum

what are the dates - will affect price. Do you want a pool - this will affect chocies. Barbary Coast good location, no pool. For "affordable" and pool consider monte carlo - i think a real value place. I hate Luxor - don;t get it, just plain rooms with a bad location.

so, dates and pool or other amenities -

Loads of things will come into play lex411 but here is something to chew on, any of these hotels are a good choice, obviously the cheaper the smaller the pool, the less number of restaurants, bars etc

High end properties (typically over $250 a night) Bellagio, Venetian, Wynn

Mid to high end (between $150 and $250 a night) Mirage, MGM Grand, Paris, Mandalay Bay, Treasure Island, Caesars Palace

Mid price hotels ($90-$150 a night) Flamingo, Ballys, Monte Carlo (major construction next door), Luxor, Aladdin (currently undergoing renovation), Golden Nugget, New York, New York

Lower Mid Price hotels ($40-$90 a night) Orleans, Barbary Coast, (no pool) Gold Coast, Excalibur (lots of young children)

Remember prices rise dramatically on Friday and Saturday nights, for example the room you can get for $50 on a wednesday in the Orleans will cost maybe $150-$200 on either friday or Saturday, Enjoy and no matter where you choose you will have a great time i guarantee

It depends on if you are coming in mid-week or during a busy time:

I would recommend the following:

South part of the strip:

MandalayBay- if you are coming during the middle of week- you may get priced in under $200. Drawback is the location, but this is a great property. A lot of things to do and see.

NYNY- Should get priced in most of the time. Not sure if it has the shows you are looking for.

MGM- Should get priced in some of the time.

Center part of the strip:

Mirage- Perfect location in my opinion. Should get priced in some of the time.

TI- Very good location and should get priced in most of the time.

Paris- Is another property that has a good location on the center part of the strip.

If you are going during a pricier time- check out Harrahs, Ballys or possibly the Monte Carlo.

I would avoid the north part of the strip. The hotel are much further apart and non of them really stand out north of the Wynn. Some people complain about the south part of the strip, but the properties are easy to get from one to another, and if you take a cab from NYNY- you can get to the Bellagio very quickly taking a cab to the side enterance.

We booked the Barbary in February for $80.00 a night. More on weekends. Check out "Canadian 2004" last posting. They give you great promo codes. That's if you are going in the next couple of months. Barbary doesn't have a pool, but by the looks of things we won't need one in 4 weeks.

That is pretty easy to answer, Monte Carlo. 5-star service at a 3-star price.

On the way to downtown, at the end of the strip, there's the Stratosphere: I've stayed there for reasonable rates several times. Also, in the same area, is the Sahara: I've stayed there a few times too. At the Sahara, you can catch that (over-priced and often inconveniently located) mono-rail to the main part of the strip. You can also walk across the street and catch "the Deuce" bus (which can be a long and grueling ride depending on the traffic). I am not interested in paying a fortune for a room in a big theme park strip hotel, but I like being near all of that activity---my luck with the Strat. and with the Sahara has been good. Stay away from Circus, Circus--it is literally overwhelmed with small children.
