Every other casino hotel downtown is out for one reason or another, most because there are no non smoking rooms available.

The RUSH Tower @ Golden Nugget has all Smoke Free rooms.
I don't know everything but I know a lot.

Thanks, can't afford to stay at the Golden Nugget this trip without dipping in to my gambling budget though.

I personally stay downtown on my last few trips. I like the 4 queens, cheap rooms, top notch video poker. I tend to walk around alot. Its great exercise and a chance to see old underbelly of vegas, cheap motels, bars and pawn shops. I have no problem walking around the neighborhoods by downtown during the day. Not so safe at night. I've actually considered walking from Downtown to the Stratosphere. I like to walk. My longest walk in Vegas was from MGM to Circus Circus,

The California is nice because it is connected via an enclosed bridge to Main Street Station, which has one of my favorite buffets, and 20x odds on Craps.

I've walked from Downtown to Bally's at night. There is a "No Man's Land" between Fremont Street and the Stratosphere that is pretty sketchy, probably due to the jail being located right there. I would not recommend the walk, even in the daytime. There is nothing to see. Take the bus and save your legs for the Strip.

I've done this walk before. I made the trek with my girlfriend at night, back when I didn't know any better. We actually intended to walk from downtown to the Monte Carlo, where we were staying at the time. We gave up at the Stratosphere, and cabbed it from there.

I would not do it again, nor would I recommend it.

One choice is to go to Tacos El Gordo on the strip as Nareed suggested, or you can use your Deuce Pass on any other bus in the city.

The Boulder Highway Express - Direction: Boulder Highway Express Southbound (Towards Sunset & Stephanie) takes 7 minutes to get to Fremont @ Bruce (S) (Stop ID: 1020) where it is a short walk (700 yards) to Charleston Mall (and Tacos).

In general that end of Fremont Street is where a lot of prostitute and drug sales occur. It can be very risky at night. If you really want to walk the whole way (about 2 miles), go down Las Vegas Blvd to Charleston and walk East to the mall from there.

Thanks a lot, looks like the Boulder Highway bus is my best bet. For what its worth, I hate riding the Duece, too slow, too crowded. I much prefer to take the WAX to the strip @ Tropicana and just walking, or taking the MGM monorails.

Looks like California wins. That is the direction I was leaning anyways. I like that the rooms have refrigerators, and I'd say overall the friendliest group of dealers I've ever encountered.
