    Whats the best bang for your square foot buck on the strip? What would you pick if you just need a large room for small cash?

    Bally's Indigo tower has a bigger than normal std room at a fairly cheap/mid level for strip price. I probably could've slept 10 more on the floor!

    Flamingo has the Studio and Go Mini Suites that are very cheap. Sure they're dated but you are looking for large and cheap on the strip and these are large and cheap.

    Not on the strip, but pretty darn close is the Signature/MGM one bedroom balcony suite with 950 square feet. Usually this can be found for a very reasonable price and has a full kitchen and a second bath with a shower. Stayed there several times and we've never been disappointed.

    Best bang for your buck in regards to Sq footage? Def the RIO absolutely no doubt about it.

    I've never stayed personally but I've seen 1br,2br suites at Jockey Club Suites between Cosmo and Bellagio for pretty reasonable rates. I believe its in the same complex at Cosmo, but I could be wrong.

    I second the Jockey club. I've never stayed there but have been in the rooms as I had made reservations for friends to stay there while I was staying at the Cosmo. Can catch pretty good deals for under $100 during weekdays and $150 on weekends, depending on the occupancy. The rooms also have full kitchens.

    It's in between the Cosmo east and west towers. You can walk to it from the Cosmo lobby as it's right behind it.

    Yeah there's not much advertisement for it. And you can't even see it from the strip without paying very close attention. I was checking on rooms today for my dates they seem to be booked, but than again it was asking me to call the Reservations Line. So maybe you'll score. From what I see in pictures some rooms have very nice views of the Bellagio Fountains. Furniture seems dated, but I'm sure you're not booking a room based on furniture.

    One reason new or recent visitors (after 2009-2010) haven't noticed or become aware of the property is it's being dwarfed by City Center/Cosmo.
    But prior to City Center, Jockey Club with the two towers was very noticeable. You could walk the Strip on the west side from Dunes/Bellagio down to La Quinta Inn (where i sometimes stayed)/Roadway Inn/NYNY in a straight line without being impeded by City Center.
    Back in the prehistoric days, you could walk from Dunes all the way to Hacienda and those were the only Resorts (on the west side). No Bellagio, no City Center, no NYNY, no Monte Carlo, Excalibur, Luxor. Just a lot of Motels and gas stations......and a Natural History Museum, a Helicopter Pad, and last but not least The Boardwalk later on.
    I never stayed at Jockey Club, but it still has it's footprint on the Boulevard.

    All the best deals have already been mentioned. Rio and Bally's the clear leaders as far as basic accommodations are concerned. Bally Jubilee rooms are sometimes avail at just token upgrade rates. You can score Mandalay Bay during slow periods from around $60. Signature is often under $100 weeknights. Westgate (yes, off - Strip by CC) is available at crazy low rates on Priceline esp if you check under Express deals (4* hotel/casino by Convention Center.....nothing else fits the bill)
