    I need a hotel 10/31/13- 11/4/13 (First time we've ever stayed over a weekend, so I'm probably sad about the absence of low strip room rates :))

    BUT I've done some hotel site searches (Harrah's/ Bally's/ Golden Nugget)

    Are there any 'special codes' out there or coupons I can get ? Or should I just assume the rate the site quotes me is 'as good as it gets' (over a weekend)

    (I also searched Hotels.com -- most times they were same price as the hotel site itself)

    THANKS for any input-- What I'm looking for is-- CLEAN- good location (under $100/night) for walking (no car-- but we will take an occasional taxi- a bus pass maybe one day).

    I realize there are those resort fees-- might have to go back to Orleans and use their shuttle-- and taxi when not in operation..

    Hints:

    1) If you have established casino play at properties, log into the website and see what kind of deals you can get. Sometimes you can get deeply discounted rooms. Sometimes even comped rooms.

    CET (Harrahs) properties (9 in Vegas): www.totalrewards.com
    BConnected properties (such as The Orleans): www.bconnectedonline.com

    Try using the Calendar function for CET to see what your rates are on all 9 properties.

    Of course, this only works if you have gambled before at the properties with a players card and you actually have this card with you (the number) or have logged in previously.

    2) Try using a travel search engine for comparison. Some are:

    www.kayak.com
    www.mobissimo.com

    and of course, there's always Expedia, Travelocity, Cheaptickets, and Orbitz. Sort search results by prices increasing. Weed out the properties you don't want to stay at (hostels, or lower-tier ones, etc.). Factor in the resort fee. You'll find good deals.

    Hope this helps

    Check smartervegas.com they have all the promotion codes!

    if you aren't picky on where you stay check hotwire.com or bid on priceline.com, you can use the website betterbidding.com as a guide.

    Does this $100 include resort fees and tax? If it doesn't, something like this for MGM could work.

    https://reservations.mgmmirage.com/bookingengine.aspx?pid=001&host=promo&show=rates&code=MGMSNPLS&kbid=1162904&sub=YDYFG!W!MGMSNPLS

    $398 plus tax and resort fees. (so total about $550)

    On Hotwire there is something for $86 a night 4 star, south strip. I'd like to guess likely Tropicana, but it could be a number of places. So that would be $400 with about a $80 resort fee.

    If you want cheaper than that you may have to start looking at Excalibur, Flamingo, Harrah's.. overall it's pretty hard to get anything under $100 on the weekend.
