So I'm finding myself in a pretty awesome situation: I'm flying down for one of my best friends bachelor parties September 20th through the 23rd, then my girlfriend and I are taking a road trip around the Southwest which will bring us into Las Vegas October 15th through the 18th. The first trip is planned and purchased already, and since I'm splitting a room with a friend we chose the Flamingo. I'm trying to book a room for my girlfriend and I and I'm having a much harder time deciding, as we're doing this road trip as cheap as possible. I've almost pulled the trigger twice on a Circus Circus West Tower room for $105 + $27 in resort fees. I've also thought about Imperial Palace, which is very close at $110 total. One thing I'm worried about is our car and the parking situation at the cheaper places. It's a nice BMW and I'd hate for anything to happen to it. Her and I don't care about gaming much, we usually wander around the strip and do whatever looks interesting at the time. Imperial Palace has the better location, but I've heard security is better at Circus Circus. Both of these places get horrible reviews, but they're in our price range. Depending on what sort of deals we can find for lodging in the other cities we visit, we might decide to stay in one of the slightly upgraded casinos. I've also considered possibly somewhere off the strip, but this has never been a consideration before and I don't know if it'd be a good idea. I appreciate any input you guys have for us!
