    Will be in LV in early Sept for a 3-4 day trip on the cheap. Have offers from TR for the following: 3 free nights at Flamingo in a king studio.
    Harrahs Carnaval King for free
    King room at either Ballys or Linq free.
    the kicker is that if we stay the4th day(Saturday) the rooms jump up to about $150-200 for Sat Night. Really don't want to split up my stay. any advice is welcome.

    That might be what you have to do, we just ran into that problem and adjusted our trip.

    Are you saying you want to stay on Saturday? Or you don't want to stay.

    Three free nights and then one paid night is not all bad.

    Not sure what your question is.

    Sorry thought my question was pretty clear, we have resv at Flamingo in a King for a Sunday through Tuesday stay that's free. We are thinking about arriving a day earlier (Saturday) . Saturday would cost about 150-200.00 extra. We don't want to split up our stay so would we be better off with that room at Flamingo, or one of the other room options in my original post.

    Of those four options i would go with ballys or Linq for sure. Harrahs is kind of a dump to me, Flamigo is dated and I wasn't impressed with their room the one night I stayed to avoid costs, and I really have a soft spot for Ballys from
    The one trip I went there. Rooms were clean, great strip location, and many options being attached to Paris. Linq intrigues me and I've heard many good things about it. I'd go with one of those two. The one plus for Flamingo is the pool. If you plan to spend a lot of time there, Flamingo earns some extra points.

    NJ nailed it--unless a pool is important, drop FL from your list. And Harrahs. (used to be a fan but stayed last month & until room remodels are complete, it is my last choice of CET properties) Flamingo is next to last choice--stayed in GO room a few years ago. Room nice, but hallway cleanliness issues that took days to resolve--and we are NOT clean freaks. Even DH was grossed out. But that was once and a few years ago, so we would stay if comped GO room or suite.

    Linq & Ballys rooms are both nicer--even Ballys older tower.

    LINQ is remodeled top to bottom. Kind of an Ikea remodel & bathrooms built for 1, but a nice vibe, Especially nice if you like some of the casinos on north Strip.

    You are likely comped in Ballys north tower--remodeld about 12 years ago. Neutral, large & clean. $20 trick will often get you an upgrade possibly to newly remodeled Jubilee Tower--but be SURE to ask for a QUIET room as nightclubs at both Paris & Cromwell can be an issue. Ballys is deadon center Strip so if you prefer casinos around there, or south Strip, I'd pick Ballys.

    These are my 2 fav places to stay (followed closely by PH; LOVE CP pool & rooms but I am over the sheer size of it).

    Why not stay off strip or DT the Sat night. Get into town, get your gaming/drinking/clubbing/etc on and move to your "final destination" Sunday.

    If budget (free vs pay for Sat night) is more important than convenience of not having to move - then I'd choose one of the free nights at Linq for an easy move to Flamingo.

    If staying put at one spot is more important, I'd pay for Sat night at Flamingo plus you gain more fun time not having to move and wait around for a room to be ready at the 2nd place - especially on a Sunday when hardly anyone checks out early after a Sat night of partying.:beer:
