Las Vegas

When you look at the pictures videos or movies from Las Vegas it is easy to become intimidated by some of those properties and think that they are out of your reach. There is no doubt that some of the hotels in Las Vegas are very expensive, but you would be surprised at the rooms that you can get without having pay much for them. For this article we will be talking about the hotels and resorts that include casinos and those that are centrally located. That will show you that it is possible to go to a nice place that is in the middle of the action for less money that you thought possible. Here are the top 5 Vegas rooms for people who are on a budget.

The Quad Hotel And Casino

The Quad is the perfect place to stay when you are looking for hotels in Las Vegas but have no money to throw around. The hotel is right next to the Flamingo and that means a few steps from the middle of the strip. The rooms are rated 3 stars and you can get the classic for as low as $23.99 a night. If you wanted an upgrade then for 3 dollars more you can get their “Deluxe” room which gives you a comfortable king sized bed, 329 sq feet of room, and a view of either the pool, the strip or mountains. Internet service is available at an extra fee. The price is based on double occupancy and some discount travel websites have rooms for as low as $17.99 for the classic room.

El Cortez

Another great option for budget Las Vegas Hotels is the El Cortez Hotel and Casino which is downtown by Fremont Street. The area is what is known as Old Las Vegas so most of the lodging options here are a bit older than the big resorts on the strip, but the area is very lively especially at night. Rooms can be had at El Cortez for as little as $28.07, but if you are willing to pay $42.11 a night you get a tower room which is much larger and includes a more comfortable king sized bed. Wireless internet is also available at a surcharge.


The Circus-Circus is one of the older casinos that have actually managed to survive on the strip. Part of the reason that it has remained a good option is that the room price when compared to other strip prices is much lower. The advertised rate is as little as $43.00 a night, but some travel discount websites have it as low as $26.00. If you booked a room at the Circus-Circus you would stay on the north side of the strip with a king size bed in the detached rooms to the back of the hotel. The rooms are actually quite large at 351 square feet and your wireless internet service is included. The best rooms run for as low as $60.00 a night.


If you are a veteran of Las Vegas you will recognize the hotel, but maybe not the name. LVH is what once was the Hilton, but now it is only known as LVH and the H does not stand for Hilton. This option is just a few blocks from the north end of the strip, but it needs to be included because for the price you will pay it should be at the top of your list. The Classic room goes for as low as $37.08, and you will feel as if you should have paid a lot more for it. The space that you will get is very big (440 square feet) for the price. You will enjoy a king size bed, a 37 inch flat screen HDTV a desk and a room safe. Premium rooms are available for $58.51 and the extras are premium bedding, a small fridge, a CD and MP3 Player and a lighted mirror.

Flamingo Las Vegas


Harrah’s should not be forgotten when talking about budget options for Las Vegas Hotels. You can enjoy a king sized bed, a mini-bar, a marble shower or a marble tub and granite countertops. The Classic room measures 340 square feet and the site is as good as it gets. For those who want a little extra they can have a Deluxe Room option for only $65.00. The extra money gets you extra comfortable bedding and 2 plasma TVs. Wireless internet is available for an extra fee.


The Flamingo is also on the strip and at a very good spot. This is another great opportunity to get an amazing location and a more than adequate place to stay the night for a very low price. The rooms are better than what they were 5 years ago with a modern touch and a great view of the strip (if you manage to get that view). The low price is only $35.00 a night. Floor to ceiling windows are now available at the flamingo in your room which makes the view that much better. The best option at the Flamingo is only $85.00 a night but you will feel that you got the room very cheap due to the way the resort upgraded every single room.
