Just to be clear. You’d rather find a hotel for $200 per night with no Resort Fee instead of a $150 hotel with a $30 Resort Fee?

Are you against Resort Fees as a matter of principle or of cost? Would you rather pay $100 for a room without a resort fee or pay $60 plus a $30 resort fee for a room?

The only hotel/casino on the Strip that I know of which does not charge a resort fee is Casino Royale. I can't personally recommend them as I have never stayed there.

TI does offer one promo in which you can waive the resort fee, but only on the TV promo, and it often is not the lowest rate.

Just add on the resort fees to determine total cost of nightly stay. The ones with no resort fee are chain hotels, not located on strip. There are amazing strip hotels that may be within budget even with resort fee. Check out Luxor, Flamingo, Lynq, New York, New York or Excalibur. Might even get lucky with MGM Grand.

Casino Royale, California, Fremont, Main Street Station, 4 Queens and many "branded" off strip casinos, such as Marriott, Holiday Inn, etc do not charge resort fees. Many Timeshare properties do not charge resort fees. IrishFan nails it. Do not worry about resort fees. Look at the Total Cost of the room factoring in resort fees, taxes, location, etc. Than choose a hotel. Look at www.smartervegas.com and see what offers they have. That books direct with the hotel.

We are staying at the Cal in June for $55 an night with no resort fees. Its newly remodeled so I don't think you can go wrong staying there. Yes, they also shuttle to the strip.

>>>Yes, they also shuttle to the strip.<<<

The Cal and Fremont Hotels do offer a free bus to Sam's Town. You can than transfer from Sam's Town to the bus to Harrah's on the Strip. There is no free direct bus from the Cal to the Strip. The Cal did a very nice remodel of the rooms, restaurants, Sportsbook, bars, lobby and casino. Boyd did it right.

If you take the Sam's Town Bus, you are looking at a 1-1/2 to 2 hour ride from the Cal to Harrah's. You must transfer at Sam's Town to a separate bus. I would take Uber or Lyft, the WAX or CX RTC Bus for $2 each way or pay the tourist price and take the SDX or Deuce RTC Bus. $8 for 24 hours. $20 for 72 hours.

It is part of the cost. You will get what you paid for.

The resort fee is not a fee attached to a smaller price for an actual reason. It's a chunk of the price of a hotel taken off so the price appears to be small and lure ppl in.

Yes, a place may be $55 with no resort fee but if they had a resort fee it would be $40 with a $15 resort fee. That's how a resort fee works.

If the $55 a night place then tags on a $20 resort fee that simply means the price of the hotel went up by $20 a night.

I do not think that the Motel 6, out by Nellis AFB has a resort fee?

It was clean, and all we needed was a room to crash, after shooting a project, from about 4:00am, till 2:00pm. Plenty of hot water, at that time too.

Good luck,

Hunt
