    I booked an offer at Aria, but am going to show up a day early and looking for advice where to stay one night off strip.

    I usually stay at Main Street Station for one night. This is an opportunity to try something new.

    Get in to town. I will have a car.
    Eat somewhere nearby.
    Check in.
    Play video poker.
    Eat on site.
    Go to bed.
    Eat breakfast on site or nearby.

    Where should I eat upon arrival and breakfast the next day? Fuku Burger? Tacos El Gordo? Lotus of Siam?

    Which property has a safe, clean environment to play some video poker?

    Who has acceptable basic rooms? Who doesn't?

    Which off strip property would you recommend for one dinner? Gold Coast PPP?

    All feedback is appreciated! Thanks for your time!

    South Point-hundreds of 99%+ payback video poker machines, either Coronado Cafe or buffet for breakfast. Since you didn’t specify which day/night you needed this for, they have some nice sit down restaurants, but as is the case these days, hours and days of the week open are subject to be at the casino’s option, and finally their rooms should more than meet your requirements.

    South Point is good.
    Also like the Silverton for basic rooms good food and decent gambling.
    The M casino is also on the list for us for the same reasons but has nicer rooms than South Point or Silverton.
    But my 1 night choice would be Ellis Island the rooms are small but clean and redone maybe 3 years a go, excellent cafe, great BBQ place, and Metro pizza is good. Cheap table mins, good selection of slots,
    sports book, lots of beer options, easy to get comps, they have video poker we play but not a lot no idea on pay tables. And the front yard is open and is smoke free.

    Southpoint or Silverton. SP is a little bigger, but both have good food options. One thing I loved about Silverton were the casino level rooms in the original section. No elevator, just walk to your room. Check VP Free for VP eval, but they used to be decent.

    I can only speak from personal experience...

    I really enjoyed my two night stay at Gold Coast a few years back..clean room, no disturbances. The Cornerstone Steakhouse IMO is Strip quality with off-Strip prices. Cant find many places that offer a tender filet with legit crab oscar on top for under $50. Also at check in, they gave me a $15 off $50 coupon as well. Generous video poker tables and solid bar service. Didnt have 1 complaint.

    Also enjoyed my stay at Sams Town albeit a tad farther of a drive for you. Its atrium is something else no other casino/hotel in Las Vegas has. Friendly service and a good night sleep--room much better then you'd expect for it being off-Strip. The "social hour" menu at The Angry Butcher is also a solid value, cant beat $5 cocktails.

    I like the Tuscany, just a block and half down the street from Bally's. Puts you very close to Ellis Island.

    South Point! Decent rooms! The Coronado Cafe is open 24/7. Great for breakfast, burgers, steak, specials... They have good buffet too. Helpful employees!

    Hundreds of great restaurants along Spring Mountain Rd. The tokatsu ramen at Monta is extraordinary and will set you back around $10.

    Several people have mentioned SP and I have to agree. It is HUGE! Great VP and food choices. This could be the start of a new property relationship.

    Since you mentioned MSS, if you want to keep your play at a BConnected property, I always stay at the Orleans. They have pretty much all you need on property too.

    I haven't stayed at South Point yet, but I've visited their property a number of times and it's on my list of other places to stay on a future trip. I also like GVR and have stayed there before. It's one of the nicer off-strip properties that I like to frequent. They also have a Pizza Rock which is a plus. LOL
