If you are not staying on Strip, try to look for some hotel that doesn't charge resort fee off Strip.
Most if not all hotels on Strip charge resort fee range from $28 -$39 USD per night.
The fees are higher on the Strip but almost every hotel charges resort fees now. Though all the hotels I mentioned above charge a resort fee, they're still cheaper than the hotels that don't charge a resort fee, at least for the dates I'm looking at.

Yes. all hotels on strip charge $30+ resort fee. My friend told me the Best Western close to the strip doesn't.
Depending on the dates really, Luxor, Excalibur those one can be as low as $30 a nt with $40 resort credit.

I'm visiting a friend in Vegas next week and I need a cheap place to stay for two nights. I don't need anything fancy and I won't be spending much time on the Strip.

Is Circus Circus really all that bad? Should I consider somewhere else? Other cheap options include Silver Sevens, Ellis Island, Hooters and Arizona Charlie's Decatur.
I would not stay there. Looked around Ellis Island a few weeks ago and it looked ok. Carriage House has no resort fee and is lovely.

Yeah, Best Western Casino Royale has no resort fee but it is nearly 3x the price of Circus Circus including the resort fee.

I'm going Thursday and Friday. Luxor and Excalibur are both about 50% more than the others I mentioned. The resort credit might make it worth it, though. How do I get it?

Do you mean you wouldn't stay at Circus Circus? Unfortunately Carriage House has no availability those nights.

Yes. Stayed there many years ago and loved it. Now it was very dirty last time we went. I dont mind not "swish" but it was not nice. I was quite impressed with Ellis Island. What about Orleans or Jockey Club? JC has no resort fee either.

So how does that work exactly? I am planning a trip in early December to the Luxor, would love to grab the resort credit. Do they do any sort of verification, or do you just talk all nautical at check-in? :)
The first 3 times I've done, they never asked for crown and anchor membership, and I wasn't a member. After that, i was prepared to give my membership number but they still didn't ask.
If you're booking more than 2 nights, make sure it's under 2 different names so you can get the credit twice (if 4 nights). You can always combine the bookings at check in.

Those resort credit charges are getting high these days.

Marriott hotels also don't charge resort credit, neither the BW Casino Royale. I could book either using points, and decided to book Marriott Residence Inn airport, and a week later when we get back, at Fairfield airport. Both have breakfast included. Good to have the CC's that get Marriott/SPG and BW points.

Ok we are staying 4 nights. So I will book two under my name and 2 under my wife. We would just tell them at the desk when we check in and they take care of it? I know we have to use each credit in the 2 days, but its not hard to spend $60 in Vegas

That's right. Worked every time for us . Some hotels on allow resort credit at that particular hotel...some any MGM hotel.

All those places are the worst of the worst on or close to the strip. Do you need to be on strip or even close by? There are a lot of decent casinos elsewhere in the city some that don't charge resort fees.

Main street station downtown and cannery on the north side are a couple of options.

Just came back from Vegas. I've been there ~6 times now and it was noticeably quieter last week, maybe 15% fewer people, the strip wasn't as busy.

I stayed at Aria and used a direct promo that had for $150 in credits staying 2 nights. I bought 2 under my name, and 2 under my wife's. Wasn't an issue at check-in to combine reservations, but there was confusion as to where the credits can be applied. My promo said it was valid at any MGM, and they thought it was only at Aria. Long story short, I was able to apply the credits from any MGM property which was nice.

Hey guys, in terms of shows which one are worth checking out? Also I remember back in the day there used to be tix4 tonight stands on strip to sell last min or unsold shows. Does it still exist?

I see they sell tickets on vegas.com is that a better bet?

We're visiting for 3 days.

Slightly off Fremont st, not far enough that it matters. Also a small hike to your room since its in another tower. Rooms are basic and clean, nothing special, and also not as noisy as the hotels directly on Fremont St. Still prefer to stay on the Strip, especially with the Royal offer.
