I was a little worried from reading some of the reviews on here but it turns out the Strat is a perfectly good base to use for your Vegas trip.
I managed to wangle a double room for $38 a night Mon-Thurs from their website by booking in advance. This is rediculously cheap for what you get. I would say the hotel is probably a 3 star european wise. You do get a mix of middle america here with a few odd balls who doubt were taken by the price. Unlikely Paris Hilton will be staying anytime in the future
Casino is O.K. if a little characterless. Some low limits on the blackjack. Buffet is reasonable if nothing more and the rest of the eateries are O.K Shopping concourse is a bit on the tacky side...but hey 38$ people!!!
Rooms were very clean, nice bathroom and we had a great view of the mountains. Rooftop pool are was surprisngly good with basketball, ping pong , towels, bar etc.
The one and only drawback that I can see is that you are at the very end of the strip. Forget about walking it is way too far. The Deuce bus which in principal is a good idea..takes forever to go down the strip (stops +traffic) and you really don't want to be waiting in the heat in the middle of July for a bus...we ended up gettting taxis whcih never cost more then about 10$ which go the parallell roads.
We ended up spending most of the evenings in the other amazing hotels on the strip which are nicer but much more expensive. Circqu de Soleils Love is awesome and worth checking if yu can get a ticket.
The area outside the Hotel isn't the classiest in the world but it isn't too bad.
It short I would recommend this for those in search of a bargain. If you want a really fancy hotel in the middle of the action stay at the Bellagio or Caesar's Palace and take out a loan with your bank manager.
