Best Cheap Hotels in Las Vegas for Partying
Everyone wants to live the fabulous Las Vegas life. But we can't all afford to drop a grand on a gambling weekend or stay at the Bellagio and be part of Ocean's Eleven. Don't be discouraged, though.
This isn't Monaco. Regular people can still spend an irresponsible weekend in Sin City without going into debt. Hotels are the biggest money sucks, so here are the 10 best budget hotels in Las Vegas.
These hotels deliver quality and fun at reasonable prices. Think less than $200 a night, depending on when you go. And, believe it or not, some of them are right on the Strip.

10. Four Queens Hotel and Casino
Located near the north end of the Las Vegas Strip, this three-star hotel is decent and affordable. Its website looks like it hasn't been updated since 2004, and so do some of the rooms. But you'll have dining and entertainment options while being within walking distance from major attractions.
The Four Queens' biggest selling point is that many of its rooms don't charge a resort fee — a true rarity in Vegas.

9. Palace Station Hotel & Casino
Though it's not on the Strip, Palace Station is a short walk from all of the action. Some people prefer this, as it usually means less noise and fewer crowds.
The three-star hotel and casino offers a free airport shuttle and numerous dining and entertainment options. Go to Boathouse for Asian Fusion and to the Casino Bar for gambling, shows and drinks.

8. M Resort Spa & Casino
M Resort is actually in Henderson, but it still offers terrific value for its price. If you go on the right days, you can enjoy its four-star amenities for less than $200. Its higher elevation means amazing views of Vegas. And you'll be only a 20-minute ride from the Strip.
But really, this is the place for people who've been to Vegas and don't necessarily need to do the touristy stuff. With 90 acres of property, multiple restaurants and proximity to a golf course, guests never have a problem finding ways to stay entertained.

7. Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel & Casino
Exuding a tropical vibe, this three-star hotel is right on the Strip. You'll be steps away from the Paris Vegas Eiffel Tower as well as the famed Bellagio Fountain, all without paying exorbitant prices.
Plus, this iconic hotel has a Flamingo Habitat, which is one of the best attractions on the Vegas Strip. Watch the beautiful pink birds and other animals like parrots and koi fish in the heart of the city.

6. Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa
Another Henderson hotel, the Hilton Lake Las Vegas will make you feel like you're in Italy rather than Vegas. The four-star property was designed to imitate an Italian Villa and even has a replica of Florence's Ponte Vecchio. Boutique stores, fine-dining restaurants, a golf course and a spa provide a wealth of interesting things to do.
But the best part is that you'll have the arid mountains in the background and Las Vegas Lake right at your disposal. A private beach, a marina and watersport facilities let you enjoy the water as if you were on an Italian Lake vacation.

5. Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino
One block away from the northern end of the Strip, the Westgate is conveniently located next to a Monorail station, so it's easy to get around. Booking on the right days will get you a room at this four-star hotel at a reasonable price.
Amenities include proximity to the Las Vegas Country Club, shops, restaurants, a tennis court and a mini market. The hotel also offers babysitting services for those parents who need a night out on the town.

4. Horseshoe Las Vegas
In 2022, the Horseshoe took over the iconic Bally's Las Vegas Hotel & Casino on the Strip. The much-needed update is refreshing and brings quality entertainment, numerous lounges (including a speakeasy) and six restaurants.
For a three-star hotel, the Horseshoe certainly delivers on quality. And so far, it also delivers on affordable prices.

3. The LINQ Hotel & Casino
The four-star LINQ Hotel is a coveted accommodation on the Strip. It's right on the LINQ Promenade (of course), and its pool has views of the High Roller, the largest Ferris wheel on the planet.
You can access shops, casinos, dining and entertainment without ever leaving the property. Although the location is so good, you'll want to at least walk around the surroundings.
Just be aware that multiple reviewers complain about uncomfortable beds. Hey, prices these good have to come with a drawback.

2. Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino
Another iconic hotel on the Strip, Planet Hollywood is an essential part of the Vegas landscape. You can't beat the location, and the amenities are pretty impressive, with a beauty salon, shops, restaurants and a decent casino. Some rooms even have a view of the Paris Las Vegas Eiffel Tower.
Prices aren't always low, but good rates aren't impossible to find. The fun kitschy decoration fits perfectly in with the city. Is it elegant? Absolutely not. But elegance is not why you come to Vegas.

1. Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World
Resorts World combines three Hilton hotels into one massive, 88-acre property that opened in 2021. Las Vegas Hilton is the most affordable of the hotels, and it gives you access to almost all resort amenities, save for VIP pools. Not that it matters since you'll still have at least four gigantic pools to choose from.
You can shop at a two-story mall with luxury shops and a food court. There are also fine-dining options, a day club for partying while the sun is out and a night club to keep going all night. The 5,000-seat theater opened on December 2022 and already has an impressive list of headliners, including David Blane, Katie Perry, Celine Dion and Kevin Hart.
We're not sure if this impressive property will continue to be affordable in the future. But for now, prices are astonishingly good.
