I might be headed to Vegas for a few days next week, first time there.

Anyone been?  Places to go, best places to stay on the strip, cheaply?

I went there for DEFCON. I'll just say, weekends in Vegas are rarely cheap. They jack up the prices on the weekends. If you don't mind staying off strip, you might want to check Sam's Town. If you want to stay on strip, check out Hooters maybe. Or perhaps The Rio (incidentally where DEFCON is held), they're pretty decent, and they have Penn and Teller.

Went there to play poker at the Belagio on my way to Mexico. Good memories. Cheapest place that I know was Vegas hostel. It was like $20/night and not far from the strip.

I don't know a thing about Hooters other than it's cheap. Also, Stratosphere is supposed to be nice and cheap, as well as Luxor.

Thanks.  That is good info there.  I have never been, I envisioned that if I stayed on one end of the strip, it would be walking distance to the other end.  I assume that is not the case?

sure.  google map it.    I would not walk it, but it is not that long.   Walking down parts of it are interesting (see the spectrum of america).   i would not stay downtown (dump).

I did the walk and it takes quite a long time; however, you are allowed to drink on the boardwalk!

Since you're going to play poker, call the poker rooms and get the poker rate. Circus Circus may be one resort(?) to consider. Rivera is located across the street.

Now, if you're going to Nevada just to play poker for a week and want good action and very cheap rooms, consider Laughlin. The poker rate is between $10-$20, whereas the those in the know, like me, would get their rooms fully comped. Primm is another option.

PG:   for the man usually up on all the latest news, you have disappointed me.   Poker rooms are closing (I gave him a link to all vegas rooms and what games/tourneys they run) BUT circus circus' poker room closed a week or two ago.   Their room is now full of penny slots....

I visited LV... once, in October 2005. (The TSA at US airports were awful even then, by the way.)

Most of the advice you've heard in this thread is reasonably sound. During the week I stayed at the Mirage and that was a dream. At the weekends I found a couple of dives: one was a Travelodge and the other was a greasy-spoony sort of raggèd hotel just south of the Strip, over the Interstate highway bridge, where I distinctly remember some crazy guy screaming and kicking walls and bins around one morning while I was gobbling my brekkie! (He didn't seem to be armed, however.) Even those near-Strip/off-Strip dives were overpriced 'cause it's expensive at weekends when all the raff come up from LA to play.

Gambling's my vice, I don't do drugs or hookers - though I understand they are illegal in Clark County anyway? (Not that they should be illegal, just that they are. And in the bars, the hookers might even approach you and ask for insane prices - LOL.)
