Be Friendly to Your Wallet With a Budget Hotel in Las Vegas

A trip to Las Vegas can be a big splurge, or it can be a budget-friendly destination. The great thing about finding a room in Las Vegas is that the city's large number of rooms (about 150,000) means you can find a room to fit any budget.

Many of the older Strip and Downtown properties cater to the value-conscious traveler. Places like the El Cortez, Tropicana, Flamingo, and Gold Spike have stayed busy keeping rooms and amenities up to date for travelers, but at a budget price. Stylish rooms offer a basic array of features, but without any over-the-top luxuries. A little dose of historic charm at any of these places may leave you wondering who else may have stayed in your room–after all, Las Vegas is known for attracting the famous and infamous.

Many Vegas visitors don't plan to spend much time in their room. If you're more interested in going out than in hanging around the room, you'll benefit from a hotel in a great location. The Excalibur, Luxor, and Bill's Gambling Hall will give you a room that has everything you need, in a location that puts you within easy walking distance of some of the Strip's most well-known hotel casinos. Stay at one of these hotels and as long as you're up for some walking, you'll have no drive anywhere.

Staying at a budget-priced Las Vegas hotel will give you more than just a good value on your room. Amenities throughout the hotels are priced to match a value-conscious sensibility, so look for reasonably priced food and entertainment as well.
