Default Las Vegas??

Wife wants to make a round with me to LA. Part of the deal is she wants to stop in Vegas for 3 or 4 days.

I need a hotel close to the strip with truck parking . Any ideas??

I need to park at a hotel so I can run my truck everyday and keep the fridge cold and not kill my batteries.

Wild Wild West. Stayed there many times. Its a truck stop right on the strip.

Very clean rooms and 24.99 a night with a CDL.

I stay there even when I fly to vegas for poker tournaments.

I usually stay behind Circus Circus (go down Industrial Rd.), lot's of truck parking, next to a KOA Campground, ignore the signs security don't care as long as you get a room. Or I stay at The Palace Station or South Point all have plenty of truck parking and clean rooms with low rates. If you like playing slots or video poker then I say South Point they have the best paybacks on the strip plus they have a good buffet, movie theater, and bowling alley. It's next to the outlets and about $10 cab ride from all the action. Have fun I was there last month and had a blast. I stayed at Circus Circus.

At I-15 exit 37, W Tropicana Ave, exit to the west, go west on W. Tropicana Ave 1 block to Polaris Ave, at Polaris Ave turn right (north), the Wild Wild West parking lot is on your left (west), the hotel is on your right (east).

If you are going to stay in a hotel than either eat all your food in your fridge or get a room with a fridge and put all your food inside there. Your fridge couldn't be that full where you need to run your truck for three days.

You're going to be in Vegas, quit worrying about your food and have a good time with your lady.

Closest truckstop to the strip. The MGM Grand has truck parking, but the rates are probably higher.

[WWWest is not RIGHT on the strip. A few blocks west of it, but right "abeam" to the middle of it! It's west of I-15, and the strip is just east of it.]


The RIO casino is right there at the WWWest. And the strip is within walking distance or a cheap cab ride.

Hope you have a great time!

LOL Wasn't going to run the truck for 3 days. Want to start it everyday for a hour or so and keep the batteries charged and the fridge cold.

Thanks all just checked out the Wild West and it looks like the place to stay. Internet rate $19.99

The above directions are ALMOST correct from Cali. When you get off at Tropicana, turn left (west). Once you make the left, go to the far right lane (#3) ). You have 2 left turn lanes at the top of the ramp, so it is no problem doing so. Go across 15 and when you come to the 1st light, make a right (In-N-Out Burger on the corner). You can make the turn without going into the middle lane to clear the corner. You'll see truck parking on the left, but with a fence. Keep going till you see a break in the fence, turn left in there and you can park anywhere on the perimeter of the lot backed in, but NOT the middle (reserved parking).

It is a lot less tight in there, less trash (people and garbage), and security patrols there a little more. You can go to Polaris or Prycon (sp?) but the turns aresharp, especially if a car is there waiting to turn.

Say hi to Bat, Debbie, or Mike at the Blackjack table and say Jeff said hi. They know me too well there from when I was doing vegas non-stop last year

They have a phone for a cab right in the casino, and it is only a couple bucks to the strip. Dont go walking west on Tropicana from the WWW.... nothing but trouble, but walking to the strip is about 2 blocks to the heart of the strip if you want, and you walk past NY NY, which is a good spot to go into.

If the strip is packed on the weekend and you've had enough of sight seeing, you can cab it about 5 blocks west on Trop to The Orleans and have a great time there.

The rate you got is great, but it is usually 29.99 on teh weekdays now, and 47 or so on the weekends for the CDL rate. The check in is a pain in the butt sometimes, so if there is a line of 5 or more people go play a few games and wait for it to go down. Don't be shy to ask for comps when gambling there for cigs or food (Denny's is right in the casino).

If you park where I say, ask if they can change your room to somewhere around 616, 842, 836, etc and you can see your truck from your door/window and its less than 1000 ft walk to your truck or less.

Also, if you have aluminum wheels, they got an old vietnam vet on a bike that rolls around offering a hand polish. No matter what he says, you can get 6 done for 20 bucks. He does a great job and desn't require money up front, and he spends a little over an hour.

Enjoy!

Who plays at online casinos? I know a great UK site with foreign casinos accepting uk players /non-uk-casinos/ where you can see a review of an online casino. A valuable feature of nongamstopcasinos on the list is the wide range of games available. Most have an extensive catalog of games where you can choose from slot machines, poker, roulette, baccarat, bingo, blackjack, craps, wheel of fortune, and more.
