    I come to Vegas, downtown area once a year and am a low roller. I was surprised this year how rates have gone up all around (air, hotel, and car). I found an excellent deal at El Cortez in early April on Easyclick.com. Big thanks to Dewey and Joe the, etc....for continued education on value deals downtown....You guys keep me connected from afar!! I have not found my car deal yet.

    I've got three nights at the El Co in May through easy click as well. Very good price, and El Co was unable to match it booking direct.

    the cabana suite is probably the best kept secret downtown.

    The Cabana Suites are nice, and typically a good deal, but this was for a Tower Room. It will be my first time in an on property room at the El Co, but based on what I have read I think it will be satisfactory.

    I looked on easyclick also and can get a bit better rate than I have now at el cortez in april.

    the only thing I don`t like is if you cancel 3 days in advance you lose one night room cost and 24 hours in advance you forfeit the whole booking cost.

    on expedia or even direct with the hotel you get everything back if you cancel 24 hours in advance.

    I guess for people who book and leave it alone it`s a good deal.

    I change things to often to risk losing any money.

    Yeah, I saw the three day thing, but the only thing I am likely to rebook within 72 hours is my rental car.

    I am a huge fan of ElCo. The cabana suites are fine if you know you have to leave the casino and go across the street to your room. We always stayed in the tower rooms until they stopped smoking rooms. If I had a choice, I would take the tower room only because you are still in the casino.

    I had to cancel my february trip and have a swa credit to use up or lose so I checked with Kayak.com and was directed to easyclicktravel.com and found a great deal. I haven't booked yet though cause the prices at SWA have gone up way past my credit so I'm monitoring the situation. Has anyone had any experience with Easyclicktravel.com?

    we found a car for 4 days for like 80$, got it off groupon, through alamo I believe. Just keep your eyes open, as it gets closer, better deal will pop up!

    I checked this deal and it is very good, almost too good.

    I want to book it but am nervous about the reliability and trustworthiness of the site?

    Can anyone vouch for the site? and have booked successful stays through them?

    Yes...I just called El Cortez, reservations, and they confirmed my reservation exactly as booked through Easyclicktravel, including my comments. Elco provided me with a hotel confirmation number....All good!

    Actually I booked my plane tickets through them also. They were not cheaper, but had better choices than other sites, including the specific airlines(how can that be?). I have checked and confirmed with the specific airlines ...again...all good.

    well I just booked the El Co through Easy Click Travel, the price was very good at $63 total w/taxes for a Sat and Sunday night.

    I have always wanted to stay at the El Co, but just never made it happen. I am very happy with the price for a tower room.

    2 Nights at the El Co and 5 nights at MSS, covering more ends of Fremont
