Las Vegas on the Cheap
Looking for advice on where to stay in Las Vegas on the cheap. I'm trying to decide if I should get a place right on the main strip, which would be favorable logistically, or stay somewhere far away and get transport there.

I've never been to vegas so I don't know how annoying/expensive public transportation is, or really any other tricks for staying there inexpensively. I'm there for three days and willing to drop about $500-600 in total for food/transporation etc.

Obviously my goal is to fall in love with as many beautiful women as I can.

Thanks

Check out Vegas.com

Orbitz/Cheaptickets have 20% off coupons that work at most Vegas.

Look at hotels like the SLS that have good rates and a decent reputation.

** I'm not a huge Vegas expert, so I don't know what girls think about going back to an average hotel with a guy.

As always, don't waste money on booze and gambling and you'll be ok.

Oh, and midweek rates are so much cheaper than weekend rates, usually.

If you have never been to Vegas try searching for a few threads in the forum. A lot of good info. Have fun!

Yea I'm bringing a flask and don't really gamble. But my timeline does put me there on the weekend, and unfortunately right during spring break.

RE: Las Vegas on the Cheap
Lodging in Vegas is very cheap on Easter weekend (and the weekend before), but based on the prices, I suspect the city is kind of empty. I guess no one wants to get caught in Sin City if JC decides to make another appearance. I'm not religious and have no family in my area, so I'm going to check it out this year for a long weekend.

I got a room at the Trump for $125/night (which is less than half the normal price), for example. The Luxor was something cheap like $89/night. Should be easy to stay on your budget with prices like that.

If you stay centrally on the Strip, you can walk to most places, but be prepared to fund a cab if you want to bring women back to your room. Cab ride will be $10-$20 to most spots on the Strip. Staying off-Strip sucks for logistics. And you don't have to eat at places like StripSteak or STK. There are lots of low- to mid-priced places to eat. I like to hit a couple of little places called El Segundo and StripBurger near the Trump for relatively cheap eats, but there are a ton of places just like them all over the Strip.

Drinks are fairly expensive in Vegas compared to most of the rest of the country (unless you live in NYC or LA), and I don't expect that to change over Easter weekend. I usually keep a bottle of decent bourbon in my room for pre- and post-gaming. Bottle of vodka and a mixer might not be a bad idea for the women, either.

Don't gamble.

RE: Las Vegas on the Cheap
What I do is I go to Kayak.com to get rough estimates for room rental prices. Then I go onto the hotel's website, see if they are running any promos for rooms and book with them directly. Sometimes Kayak has other secondary links to sites that have rooms cheaper than usual.

For example, if you join Treasure Island's loyalty awards program, you get 30%-40% off. It gets really cheap if you do it that way, even cheaper than the expedia.com, etc. One thing I like about Treasure Island is that the pool has a DJ that plays hip hop music, so its KIND OF like a poor man's pool party. They do have some families but they also do have some girls (usually midwestern girls in groups and some couples). They do not look as good as girls at pool parties and aren't as receptive as girls at pool parties, but if you're watching your money its a decent location plus logistics are good, you're upstairs. Also Senor Frogs in the hotel is a good place to pick up the same types of B-list/C-list girls, its my usual end of the night hail mary spot and my room is just upstairs.

http://treasureisland.com/special-offers

Taxi's are a rip off, stay on the main strip for sure.

Flamingo, Bally's, Treasure Island, Monte Carlo, Excalibur, etc., all usually have deals for cheaper rooms available. I'm really good at going to Vegas and making it cheap, you just have to book ahead of time. Taxi's are expensive. Food can be expensive. Going to Nightclubs can be expensive. These (except the Taxi thing) can be hacked so you can greatly reduce the cost.

To reduce drinking costs, drink in your room or in places where they do 2:1 promos. Yeah, a drink at the clubs start at $15 or 16. A red bull and vodka is $19 and an aluminum can of miller light is $10. For food, you just have to find the good deals, they are out there. Even some of the food courts in the malls are way overpriced, you just have to find the cheap spots. Also, if you join Total Rewards (Harrahs/Cesars/etc), many of the restaurants in the hotel give you a $1 discount on the food you order, at least in the lower end coffee shops, etc. There's a discount at the Buffetts too if you're into that.

Solid post, Drazen. Speaking of Treasure Island and Senor Frogs, the neighboring country bar Gilley's isn't a terrible spot for B/C-list Hail Marys if you have any country/swing dancing game.

RE: Las Vegas on the Cheap
From the airport, go to the Hotel Shuttles. Its like $15 or $17 for a round trip, you just schedule your pickup. It does take longer at times, sometimes up to 45 minutes if you're the last drop off or if they wait for other passengers. If you do take a taxi, make sure you don't let them take the freeway to get to the strip, it adds $10-15 to your fare because of the way the freeway is set up to drop you off a mile or two behind the airport as you leave.

You can use the Monorail pretty easily. I'd stay away from the Strip Bus though, it gets crowded as hell. I'd just get the day or two day pass and use it if you don't want to pay for a taxi provided your hotel is along the route. That's only if you want to tour around a bit. There are free Monorails from Mandalay to Excalibur hotel as well as one that goes around City Center to Bellagio.

Cheap and beautiful women don't really go hand-in-hand in Vegas. Drazen's post is solid, but at Treasure Island and Excalibur you're going to be looking at a bunch of fatties and families.

You can definitely stay at those places, but you'll want to be hanging out at Cosmopolitan, Aria, Wynn, Encore, Bellagio, etc. Odds of bringing a girl back to your budget room are slim, so you'll have to bullshit your way into her room. Drinks in clubs run about $15+, so pregame like a mofo, buy some cheap booze at CVS.

Avoid taxis, take the monorail. Restaurants inside casinos tend to be overpriced. There's a new Shake Shack that just opened up for burgers and beer. Avoid any of the tourist traps like Battistas and stick to sandwich shops like Capriotti's. Avoid buffets, the food is mostly crap and you pay $20-30 instead of having a $10-$15 meal at Shake Shack.

Search the threads and narrow down what you want to do/where to stay and post some ideas.

RE: Las Vegas on the Cheap
Treasure Island has two latin nights on Saturdays at both Senor Frog's and Kahunaville. Has anyone here ever seen quality girls or had success at either of those places? I've never been to Kahunaville, but I've been to Senor Frog's at least three times on Saturdays and it was really bad every time. I'm just trying to see if I happened to go on the wrong nights or if both of those places are to be avoided.

It's starting to seem like we have way too many Las Vegas threads on here but some good deals on food are Palms has a $8.99 prime rib special at the 24 seven cafe that is decent. You have to get a Club Palms card before they give you the deal, but the card is free and it takes all of two minutes to get. Tacos El Gordo by the Wynn has Mexican fast food and is pretty good. The place always seems to be fairly busy and can get really packed. As someone mentioned on another thread, Grimaldi's is a good and pretty cheap pizza place with locations in the Palazzo and Fashion Show Mall. The Fashion Show location is better. I've tried both. They also opened a White Castle on the strip. That is the only kind of fast food I can stand.

RE: Las Vegas on the Cheap
The quality is not good, although it isn't hard to pick up. Its really sporadic, you get a lot of Mexicans, also you get a few girls there on a "girl's weekend" who don't really go out to Clubs. In my experience, its good. I wouldn't make a whole night out of Senor Frogs because...well, you're in Vegas and there is so much there. Its a good place to have a drink before going out or a good place to throw some hail marys if its 3am and you're staying in the Hotel.

The place is like a Spring Break bar. Its a few cheesy guys who seem to be able to dance a little too well, with random girls in groups. Sometimes larger groups of girls have "group dinners" there in the early evening, and there's a DJ getting them drunk and on stage, etc. If you're good at going up on stage, being a cheeseball and what not, its probably a better place for you.

Thanks for all the advice so far. I did find another Vegas thread and between these two I'm feeling more confident. Also wondering how easy it is to sneak flasks into these tier 1 clubs.... do they pat you down or anything?

I wouldn't do it. If you get caught they won't let you in and you wasted several hours. I believe most clubs give you a quick pat down, at least the General Admission and Wantickets lines at XS and Hakkasan. I'd bring a flask and then go around at the Cosmopolitan and hop around at different bars that aren't clubs as a pre-game if you're intent on going to a club.

I usually prefer the ABC Stores (hawaiian chain that's in Planet Hollywood and the Fashion Show mall) to buy booze and waters and snacks. Stock up there, I know the Walgreens prices are usually higher than normal Walgreens, not sure about the CVS on the strip. If you want to eat REALLY cheap and fast with no waiting, you can go there and they usually have fruit, some spam musubis, chips, etc.

RE: Las Vegas on the Cheap
I remember this taxi driver on the way on from last trip a few years ago. He was mid 40's, black and in excellent shape. The quality of the girls I saw on the cell phone was good about 7-9's and most girls were 10-20 years younger then him. He shared a on room on the strip for Thur-Sun and went gaming after his shift at 3am usually solo.

He doesn't drink. He could get a girl back usually once or twice week.
I find that even hanging outside a big club to see the drunk girls come out late night is inexpensive technique. If your sober it's even better.

That's how you do Vegas on the cheap.

Eat at subways in the mall or at the 7-11 further down, can grab a chicken pita for like $4. You'll need nutritious food and water to give you the energy for day.

Also, my friend pulled a girl at 5am in the morning outside XS so waiting outside the top clubs is a viable strategy if you can't go in.

RE: Las Vegas on the Cheap
Speaking as somebody who also loves to go to Vegas without breaking the bank, Drazen is spot on with his assessment. Plan in advance (hotels can be 3-4x as expensive if you book last minute than a month in advance), pre-drink in the room, buy club tickets pre-sale, and generally avoid the urge to blow money just because its "VEGAS BABY!" That mentality is the reason that people go broke on Vegas trips every weekend, and contrary to popular belief, you do not need to get a $2k table to get laid at a club in Vegas.

One spot I'd suggest for relatively cheap food is Grand Lux Cafe. There are two locations, one at the Venetian and one at the Palazzo next door. It's open 24/7, has a 9 page menu that has basically any type of food you could want (burgers, pizza, pasta, tacos, salads, etc) and for the most part its really good. While it'll cost between $9-16, these portions are absolutely enormous. Considering you're going to be partying, you probably don't want to eat too much, so eat half and grab a to-go box for the rest. You'll get two meals out of one, unlike at a buffet where they don't allow you to take anything to-go. I'd say $12 is a good price for a real meal in Vegas, let alone potentially two.

Is this really a problem? I'm unfamiliar with the vegas mentality but I've never run into a problem bringing a girl back to a budget room.... especially considering how relative the word budget is in this case.

Its not a problem, its not like the only guys getting laid in Vegas are staying at the Wynn or Cosmopolitan.

The importance is proximity and how quickly you can get her upstairs. There are ways around this like venue changes, telling her you want to go gambling at your hotel, etc. You should be targeting tourists who go to Vegas infrequently, simple midwest girls, etc., for them, the hotel room doesn't matter at all (within reason) as long as if its close.

That being said, if you are staying somewhere nice, you have more confidence and probably do have a better chance. I aim for the Treasure Island or better usually, since its decently clean. There is an obvious number of more attractive people in the nicer hotels though while the cheaper spots have less attractive and fat/middle aged people.

For those in LA/etc., Vegas is just an extension of LA nightlife. We go here very frequently therefore, we have to keep the costs reasonable. If you're coming once or twice a year then yeah, go crazy baller baller. Also, once you go enough times, you lose the urge to really blow a lot of money since its not really that big of a deal.

If you like that tip, try to go outside the daytime pool parties from around 5-7. You'll find good traffic there AND there are sometimes girls waiting for their friends. The EDC one cost $80 the last time I was in Vegas so if you're a low budget playa, fuck that.

The problem with that is the strange exits at the pool parties. At Wet Republic, you have to go through this weird exit and right outside of the Wet Republic entrance area where you end up rarely has any cabs, meaning you usually have to walk through the regular MGM pool, through the lobby of the hotel and to the taxi lines.

At Encore Beach, unless you have a Wynn hotel room key, they won't let you exit into the hotel, you have to exit out on Las Vegas Blvd then walk over to the taxi stand.

Its kind of strange. I wonder if one were to wait in the drop off area (there is a roundabout area for the hotel/condo there) of Wet Republic while "waiting for someone" if some girls would want a ride back to their hotel. Girls get separated all the time too.

RE: Las Vegas on the Cheap
Not sure this will help on the cheap, but my best vegas move so far has been to get the Hyatt credit card. With that comes Hyatt Platinum status. What does that have to do with Vegas? Due to their lack of hotels in the city they have a reciprocity agreement with mlife that will automatically give you MLife gold status. Its a mid-level status so you won't get the Nick Papageorgio treatment but people with that status have gambled quite a bit so there are perks.

The biggest perk may seem small but its huge. VIP check-in line. I can't tell you how great it feels to walk past that cattle herd of plebs waiting to check-in. Some mlife hotels will have you check in at the vip room. At the Monte Carlo I took advantage of their complimentary wine by dumping it into a starbucks cup. The status also gives you a room upgrade which isn't a big deal in Vegas considering the $20 trick. And finally it gets you into the VIP line for nightclubs and pool clubs.

Non-vegas bonus of hyatt card: you get 2 free nights anywhere in the world. I used mine at the Park Hyatt Paris where the going rate was $1000 a night.
