Here are ways to stay in the city of angels without raking up a bomb!
Soul searching is the key
There are places that you can stay at, if you don’t have any high expectations as such. For that we want you to do some soul searching before you plan your trip and head out. There are many that are of the opinion, when you are in Las Vegas, you wouldn’t be spending a lot of time in the hotel room, so why book one? What you could do instead is to opt for motels and hostels, where you don’t have to pay for laundry, cooking or living round the clock- pay for the services only that you would use.
Stay off the STRIP
Paying for an overpriced hotel at the STRIP is baseless, especially if you aren’t going to be in the room for most part of your stay. Choose motels, live-in share accommodation and more from places away from the STRIP-. Gambling away from the STRIP is where the locals are mostly found and you would earn more in your favour too. Detachment allows you to leave the top-notch deals, enjoy newer experiences and dismiss what you don’t fancy but have to pay for!
Check for cheapest accommodation deals
AIRBNB is one way to have a baseline search for hotel deals, period. And we aren’t only talking about hotels here, but for shared accommodation, live-in homes and motels too, where cheapest accommodations can be found away from the STRIP for cheap; downtown Las Vegas especially. Opt for the last minute deals that are a steal. You can also check on Priceline and Sleep Cheap Las Vegas as well. Other options would be Circus Circus and Excalibur.
Check social media
There are various social media groups on facebook and twitter that have options for you to check out as well. Not only this, there’s a huge list of cheap hotels in Las Vegas to explore! But, just in case you don’t have a hotel bargain to your fancy, don’t give in to the costliest ones. Chances are that someone on the social media group wants to give out his room for short-stay rent which you can opt for. Once again, the city has warm people and they are willing to lend their homes and roof for a night or two, at a very minimal cost.
