I think the one bedroom spa suites at Golden Nugget are fantastic and the best downtown. They are two story with living room, dining room, full bar, and bathroom downstairs. The spiral staircase takes you up to the bedroom that has a steam shower and a Jacuzzi that looks out the window. When you order room service they can deliver it either upstairs or downstais as there is an entry on each level.

I have probably spent close to 50 days in these rooms. Their website used to have a bug in it where you could book this room for the price of the lowest room on the website. It was very nice to get a two story suite for $49 a night.

Thanks for the help. I think there's still a bug in their website because you can't do anythinng with them (at least I can't) on an Apple device.

Like the Golden Gate the Tropicana has an uncovered lot. The Tropicana is free but the Vegas summers WILL burn the clear coat on your car.

If staying at the Tropicana, park in the Hooters lot. (free)

Where have you gotten a room with a stove?

Extended Stay America (2*) has stoves & full-size refrigerators. They are unusually pricey in Vegas ($80-100+). I've stayed in some elsewhere for $26-30/night on Priceline ($42-44 after tax & fees).
Timeshares (4*) - I've only previewed them. Never stayed in one.
"Weeklies" (often 1-1.5* rooms) - Ditto. Only looked at them. I booked one (a decent 1.5* one was $259/week + tax = $1,400/month), but ended up doing a regular rental (cheaper, Studios in Summerlin for $500/month).

Hostels. One in Vegas even has a swimming pool & jacuzzi.
My brother likes to cook, so he used hostels for the kitchens...until someone stole some of his food. Now he uses Air BnB.

Some rooms come with microwaves.

Thanks for the great tip! Wish I had known this in Nov & Dec... I paid around $800/month for rooms, since I only had about half of my rooms comped.

I stayed at 4 Queens, had a high floor "suite", though it was 1 room, and liked it very much. Not noisy. Leather couch, big screen tv, wet bar with 4 chairs, microwave, large apartment fridge, walk-in shower (no tub) with very nice amenities (full size soaps, sewing kit, toothbrush, etc etc) in a decent bathroom, decent king bed with good linens.

I would recommend it. Not a 2 story high-roller suite etc, but nicer than I expected and very comfy.

Free covered parking for guests, several good to fair restaurants on-site, OK games, center of FSE.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

What's wrong with staying at the Downtown Grand?

It's still open, right?
