Boardwalk Hotel and Casino
a real steal
service is good. staff is very friendly.
i recommend this hotel for budget travelers. make your reservation through the internet. There are promos advertised all over. because we took this promo, the rate we got is less expensive than going to one of the motor inns. the hotel is along the strip too!
highly recommended to Filipinos. When checking in, speak in Tagalog or let the check in personnel (who is usually a Filipino) know that you're also Filipino. They'll upgrade your room instead of giving you a lousy room because you got it for a "lousy" rate.
Unique Quality: a bit old so as expected, there's an "old" smell to it. but it's generally clean.
Directions: along The strip
As already mentioned this hotel is in a great location, next to the Monte Carlo and very close to the MGM.
Our room was clean and pretty much standard for Vegas.
It isn't as posh as it's bigger neighbours but how much time are you going to spend sitting in your room when there are things to see and do?
Unique Quality: Great location means the price is a bargain.
Small pool and fitness room.
Directions: Next to the Monte Carlo
It's all about location
I read good and bad reviews (more of the latter) of this hotel, but for Memorial Day weekend, it was our best option.
The hotels best feature is its location - it's right between the Monte Carlo and the Bellagio - right in the middle of the strip. That's about all the praise I can give it. The pool was OK, the room was decent, although I did find a toenail clipping on the chair (ewwww) and the front desk was not too nice.
Unique Quality: It's most distincitve feature - just look for scary-ass clown in the front of the casino.
Directions: b/t Monte Carlo and Bellagio
scary clown head
We stayed in the convieniently located Boardwalk Hotel. It is one of the smaller hotels, but it's right in the middle of the strip! It was reasonably priced just not as elaborate as some of the other places surrounding it. It's all in the name, it was exactly like a hotel you'd find down the Jersey shore...Hotel rooms that open out onto a walkway or the main patio, 2 regular pools, nothing fancy, and a resturant that we didn't bother eating at.
You can probably stay there cheaper than we did, but we went during a holiday week.
Next visit to Vegas we most likey will stay somewhere else
Unique Quality: Love those $3 tables! Hated the scary clowns.
CLOSED -now part of "the ghost of LV"
This was a cute but gawdy little casino with a hotel at the back. Formerly a Holida Inn, it offered a good rate. I've stayed there for as low as $39 in a nice clean room in walking distance of all of the great casinos!
It was closed and is becoming part of a project for MGM. The 18 million-square-foot first phase of the project calls for a 4,000-room hotel and casino, three 400-room boutique hotels to be operated by internationally recognized companies not currently in Las Vegas, 1,650 luxury condominium-hotel units and 550,000 square feet of retail, dining and entertainment space.
Unique Quality: Yes the casino looked cheesy but was LOW COST and CLEAN
Directions: It was across a parking lot from the Monte Carlo
