My wife and I are going to be making a four night trip in mid July, and have decided we would like to stay downtown for two of those nights. I have been looking at all of the different casinos and like the look of the Cal and the D. Is the walk from the Cal to Freemont that long, and is it safe. For those of you that have stayed in either or both of these places which would you pick. Just read the post about the new Cal, and like the idea of them renovating the place. The D looks like its already been renovated. I like the rates at both places, and really like the fact that they don't charge resort fees. We are not fancy people, so places with higher rates downtown like the Plaza and the Golden Nugget really don't do much for us. Thanks for the help with this in advance.
