The rooms are new with big flat screen TV's but I thought they were too expensive considering you are off the beat and track.

I tried to get upgraded to a deluxe room and even though they were at only 38% occupancy they declined my request.

I could go through a host, but they I'd be obligated to play there and I didn't want to be stuck playing there exclusively for an upgrade or even a comped room.

Any one else been comped there yet, or at least upgraded?

I stayed twice. Once I was in a corner room with floor to ceiling glass in two outside walls. I was really impressed. I tried to get that again on my last stay but I did not manage it and I see that the rooms are nice but average then as others had said. Seniors can bargain the rates down by ten dollars a night. That makes may nights just thirty dollars, no resort fee. They send me offers of one free night and last trip I did just that one night and then went over to Sam's. I like the poker room. A great brush named Brian, perhaps the friendliest poker guy I have found and very good at managing this little room. I like the drive in Bank of America right across the street. It is walk in for me and was a way to bet cash without cashing my Traverler's checks, the last of their kind at my credit union. The buffet was just adequate, but good as a freebie with four hours of poker play. Great cookies. Every simple buffet always seems to have one thing no one else has. Here were cookies, including those moon? cookies frosted half in white and half in black.

You just expect them to give you extra for nothing?

I received an offer from the meadows today for 3 nights free, 25 dining, and 20 slot play at eastside . We are thinking about going out with our 2 young kids. I am thinking about doing it then renting a car so we can do other things and go to strip and downtown. Is it easy enough to get around and would a car be needed or could we just do public transportation?

The 202 bus goes down Flamingo to the strip. The BHX goes to downtown. Also there is a shuttle from Sam's Town to Main Street Station I believe.

The shuttle from Sam's town (which is s short walk from eastside) goes to Fremont casino and California, not Main street, not that it matters. Still downtown. there is also a shuttle from Sam's that goes to the strip (harrah's I believe). Both shuttles are free.

The two public transportation options that Ibeatyouraces's mentioned are pretty convenient as far as public transportation goes. They both run every 15 minutes and are just a straight shot to strip and downtown. No transfers or anything.

It might depend on (a) where you want to go to "do other things" and (b) how young the kids are.

The 202 does go to the Strip, but (a) it's about 3/4 mile from Eastside Cannery to the nearest 202 stop (there's supposed to be one near the casino, but I don't think it's open during some major construction in the area), and (b) the bus about 40 minutes to get there.

Also take into account that even if you get the 3-day passes that include the Deuce and SDX buses on the Strip, that's something like $60 for the four of you.

If it's only three nights, I would suggest renting the car. This also avoids things like having to wait out in the sunlight for up to 30 minutes for a bus.

Thanks for the correction. We took the 202 from the strip to Wal-Mart down there a few days ago and got unlucky with 4 wheelchairs and we seemed to catch every damn red light too. It was a slow ride.

And agreed with TDG. With kids, especially if they're younger, just rent a car instead of waiting in the heat.
