I just received an offer from BConnected for two free nights at any of these properties. I plan to use them on my next trip. I have never stayed in any of them. (Note that the one place I have stayed, the Gold Coast, is not included.) Keep in mind that I may or may not have a car this trip. Not that any of these hotels are hard to get to on public transit (especially with the new WAX).

I'd vote first for MSS, second for SamsTown.
Even if once there you have to stay put for some extreme reason, there good properties for that unlikely event.

I normally stay at the Orleans, so it's the one I'd prefer to stay at if I'm paying.

However, if I was offered a free room at MSS, I'd give it a go. I really like the casino and beer their (even if I did have security ask me to check my bag as I looked like I might be carrying a gun.... !!!).

I like MSS, good craps, good VP, and low limit PGP for when I want to slow down and drink some brews. Not much food in terms aside from the buffet and the brewpub, but you're so close to Fremont St that you can eat anything else.

MSS is really nice. California is basically the same property since they are connected by a bridge, but MSS is much newer. The Craps with 100X odds is a real draw. The buffet as MSS is a steal, plus Happy Hour at the brew pub is great for prime rib. Sushi is terrible

The Fremont is badly aging property. I would go for Orleans after MSS and California. I don't like Sam's Town. I think it is way too isolated.

Suncoast is a new property, but it's a long bus ride. The games are not as good. If you were going with a woman, I would head here.

I voted Orleans because I often stay there and like it. However, if you don't have a car I'd go with MSS just because you can walk to Fremont Street and have a choice of places to go, including the reopened Plaza.

I voted for the Orleans. The MSS is not a bad choice, but the Orleans is nicer and bigger. The Suncoast is about equal to the Orleans, but is way out in the boondocks, by my house.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

You also have free shuttle service to consider to the strip and other properties.

100X?

I thought it was 20X.

I'm not sure what your preferences are for a trip to LV, other than what you've said, so I can't refine my recommendations for you.

But based on my preferences, I'd rank them thusly: Fremont, Orleans, Cal, MSS, Sam's Town, Suncoast. This comes from someone who's stayed at the Fremont and Orleans. Both rooms were decent, but failed to knock my socks off. The downtown properties have the advantage of being on (or near) Fremont St., but are smaller and older than the others. The Orleans and Sam's Town are big, sprawly, with lots of on-property amenities, but a bit away from the action (which i define as the Strip and downtown). I have never been to the Suncoast.
