    I'm going to be ending a weeks road trip vacation by spending a day or two in vegas before flying home.
    I was just there a few months back staying on the strip which I've had my fill of.

    Looking to escape the hustle and bustle and find somewhere much more laid-back but with a decent place to eat and a nice swimming pool.

    I'll have a rental car if that matters.
    And if there's anything somewhat interesting to see or visit nearby I'm all for it.

    Any ideas?

    South Point or Suncoast. Or probably any other boyd casino or station casino or cannery would satisfy these criteria. They are all pretty laid back compared to the strip or downtown, have pools, and good restaurants. There are also lots of good restaurants outside casinos as well, and you will be nearby.
    Suncoast is near Red Rock canyon and there is an excellent steak house across the street, Echo and Rig.
    You could also stay somewhere southeast like Sunset Station or samsS Town if you wanted to see the Hoover dam. But Las Vegas isn't that big of a city so it doesn't take long to get across town on the 215 loop.

    As far as laid back goes Aliante had that feel. Their pool looks nice too.

    I would add Silverton to the above suggestions. It's unique and it's nice. And don't forget about the M Resort further south.

    JW Marriott has a great pool. They also have a cafe with a lot of price-break specials. It's located in an upscale part of the City with a lot of high end shopping/restaurants across the street.

    Two choices:
    JW Marroitt in the Summerlin area. Great pool and spa. Amazing landscaped grounds.
    South Point south of town. Tons of good restaurants and good gambling (BJ is 3/2 and VP is very good).

    JW is the move..small friendly casino great hotel; some of it is a little 90s..like garden tubs and gold finishes; but for someone who appreciates that it’s nbd

    Pool and spa are a win! Reasonably priced

    Restaurants are about what you would expect of off strip eating

    I recommend M Resort. They have a glorious buffet, along with several other good restaurants. They also have a really nice swimming pool.

    We've been fans of the "nicer" off Strip properties as long as we've been vegasing. The JW (and previous branding) has been our #1 go-to, but we also like RRR and M and GVR. We've also done (good) time at Suncoast and Southpoint and Silverton. On the hotel side of things none are up to those other four but they also aren't downtown-grade.

    Red Rock, M Resort and Green Valley are all great off strip properties
    Good luck!

    You have so many great options as many others have noted. GVR, Red Rock, JW, M Resort all great places. I haven't found South Point and Silverton to be at the same league with these four, but they're quite nice too.

    A more economic off strip option would be Sam's Town, a world on its own. If you don't want to venture too much off the strip, then Palms, Rio, Gold Coast will be OK too.

    And Palace Station ( undergoing extensive renovation) and Orleans should be in consideration with this group.

    Since the title is Way Off the Strip, I would suggest Red Rock or South Coast. I love or like most of the other suggestions but if you really want to fell like you got away from the strip, those two will do it for you.

    Having stayed at both Red Rock and GVR they are both solid hotels. This doesn’t matter to the OP but the only negative about RR is it’s to far from the strip, where GVR seems much closer.
