Great place as a getaway vacation for me and my wife. Not just a vaca for the rich and glamorous. Great place on a budget if you research the Cheap Eats, Cheap Drinks, Great Show Deals, and Cheap Gambling. I am a very thrifty shopper and have found some great places to eat, drink, watch and gamble.

Golden Nugget

Golden Nugget

Great place to stay if you are staying on Fremont St. Nice pool (small) but surrounds a shark tank and has a sweet slide that goes through the tank.

Casino Royale

Casino Royale

Great low key place to gamble for cheap and a great place to drink for cheap. $1 Michelob/Light and Frozen Margs. Also has a small food court with $1.99 Footlong Hot dogs.

Excalibur

Excalibur

Not the first hotel that I would pick from but ended up being a cheap steal. Has a great array of pools for every age. Definitely nice to have one of the four pools be an adult area only. The rooms in the remodeled tower were very nice. Has one place you have to eat if you come to Vegas, Dick's Last Resort. Have fun with it and enjoy your meal!

Fremont

Fremont

Fremont Casino has $2 Corona and Heineken bottles and i believe $1 Margaritas. Good plae to chill and have a few cheap drinks.

Harrah's

Harrah's

Always a great place to stop and gamble. I have had a great dal of success on the craps tables here. Also has an open stage and bar for concerts nightly. A great place to sit and watch some live music outside at night. Also has the dueling pianos inside.

Stratosphere

Stratosphere

Have not spent much time here except on my wedding day. After our wedding we came to eat On Top of th World. It was an amazing experience with a great view and some of the best food I have ever eaten. Definitely the most expensive. I am a pretty savvy spender so I wont be going back anytime soon unless I win the lottery.

Bally's Las Vegas

Bally's Las Vegas

Great location and from what I hear a pretty nice place to stay. A couple of guys I work with stay here every summer with their wives. Pool is not spectacular but if you are middle aged and want a place to stay without the hassle of all of the young drunk partiers this is a good option. Has a great restaurant called the Tequila Bar with a great taco dinner for less than 10 per person. Also has the best place ever across the street to the north behind the old Bills Gambling Hall. It is a Convenient store/bar all in one called the Stage Door or better know as Happiest Place on Earth--And Cheap Beer. Small , dingy and great cheap eats. $2.50 Hot Dog and a Beer, and add some fries and its a great cheap lunch.

Hooters

Hooters

Small little joint with a good drink dea $2.50 Bud/Budlight and some good cheap wings. Nice place to gamble without a ton of people bugging you. One $3 Black Jack Table and 50 cent Roulette.

Orleans

Orleans

A little off the Strip but can take the bus. Has a great New Orleans feel to it. A little different atmosphere that other places in Vegas. A wonderful $7.99 Breakfast Buffet.

El Cortez

El Cortez

A very low key place to gamble with the feel of Old Vegas. Its down Fremont St a little ways but not very crowded and easy access to any gaming you want. Not much of a reason to visit if you want a lot of action.

The Linq Hotel and Casino

The Linq Hotel and Casino

Only been a couple of times and have not eaten at Hash House A-Go-Go, but am planning on it this trip. I am told it is a great value and an enormous amount of food. Casino is a little shabby but is another place that you don't have to fight the crowd. Also right between the Quad and Harrahs is an outdoor concert stage with a bar.
