“Great budget hotel in Las Vegas”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

The Super 8 is a bare-bones hotel in Las Vegas, conveniently located 1 block East of the Tropicana hotel. A short cab ride from the airport. If you're looking for fancy surroundings on premises, gold statues, fountains, luxury restaurants, giant fish tanks, glitz and glamor, then this is not your hotel. If you're looking for a basic competent, clean room at a very affordable price, then look no further. One convenience if you're driving, is how close to your room the parking is - it's right outside your door! Very nice! And you're within easy walking distance of MGM Grand (right across the street), New York, New York (about a 10-minute walk), Excalibur (10-minute walk), Luxor, Mandalay Bay, all close by. BEWARE of the summer heat in Las Vegas! Distances can be deceiving, and a "short walk" in the summer sun can kill you - LITERALLY! Always wear a hat, carry a bottle of drinking water, and stay well hydrated! But, there are convenient cabs to take you anywhere you want to go in safety. And if you stay at the Super 8, you won't break your wallet staying in Las Vegas. Also, remember that you won't be spending a lot of time in your hotel room, so for sleeping, this is a perfectly acceptable place. An affordable alternative worthy of your consideration! Your wallet will thank you!

I came in middle of May for a small family get together at a near-by big strip casino. Vegas was hot and busy and I found the Super 8 Las Vegas to be very conveniently located and extremely easy to navigate and just made everything go smooth. I think staying here really helped my overall experience in Vegas be wonderful. I'm happy to have met some staff members such as Lisa, Tu, and James. Wish I could name some more, but the entire staff was fantastic, even the engineers on my room level helped me find my room when they noticed me walking behind them. The beds were amazing, loved the overall look, and loved the hot chocolate in the lobby. Great value! I haven't been to vegas for 3 years and I will be back again soon and would love to be able to stay at this hotel again thanks to my overall amazing time. My only complaint was that it was hot, but hey, the hotel cooled me down fast in the nice pool. Great times!

If you are looking for conspicuous luxury, this is not the place. For great value at a rock bottom price, this is an excellent choice. My room was clean on arrival and they did a pretty good job of keeping it that way. I had two maintenance issues that were fixed very quickly. The room wasn't huge, but right-sized. A/C worked well, and the LCD television was nice. Best of all was the helpfulness of the front desk crew. For best prices you should reserve in advance. If you are interested in rewards, book thru Windham. My rewards will go directly to Southwest Rapid Rewards, but other programs are available.

In theory this property is only 2 blocks from the strip, but LV blocks are equal to 4 blocks in other cities. Buses in LV seem very comfortable, and there is a N-S stop in front of the motel, with an E-W stop 1/2 block North on Flamingo.

There is a small casino with restaurant next door, called Ellis Island. Many folks seem to like it. I thought it was OK, but a little disappointing. See separate review.

Room Tip: The single rooms have a king sized bed, which IMHO is too big for the room. There was only room for...

Have stayed here a few times and the Super 8 continues to provide very good value so close to the Strip. It is only a few minutes walk from Ballys, Caesars Palace, The Flamingo and Balagios. The only downside is that the immediate area around the hotel can seem a little intimidating particularly late at night.

Great parking is available and a nice pool - although it is very small so soon full on hot days.

Air conditioner was not working when we arrived but was quickly and efficiently fixed. Rooms seemed to have had some makeover and provided good basic accommodation.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back are quieter - those overlooking Koval Lane at the front have a better view...

We wanted to stay in las Vegas for 2 more and the Luxor price was far too expensive. Since we were on a budget I decided to look elsewhere. I booked into Super 8 for 2 nights and was very impressed. Even though the hotel is not on the srip it's only a 10 min walk (max) from the Strip. It had a pool and spa and you were not charged the extortionate resort fees the other hotels charge to use it. You even get a free betting voucher.

Room Tip: Worth it for the price!
