It is proximity to all the exciting Las Vegas attractions that makes Las Vegas Travelodge so appealing to so many, and such a good value for your vacation dollar. This is one of the best accommodations for people on a tight budget who have every intention of taking advantage as much as possible of everything that Vegas has to offer. Travelodge South Strip, as its name implies, is located on the south end of the Las Vegas Strip. It should be on your Vegas hotels list if you're looking for comfortable, inexpensive no-frills accommodation combined with a killer central location. It is probably one of the best deals on the popular Strip, and is all about location, location, location.
The Las Vegas Travelodge is right next door to the MGM Grand and the famous Harley Davidson Café, serving arguably the best burgers and barbecue in town. Here, motorcycle lovers can fill their stomachs, quench their thirst and drool over imaginatively displayed classic Harleys. Also in the same block area are several deluxe resort hotels and casinos, including the Monte Carlo, Excalibur and New York New York, to mention just a few. Within a few more blocks and easy walking distance are all the other big name casino resorts, exciting nightlife and Las Vegas attractions, including Planet Hollywood and the magical Bellagio Fountains. If you've had enough of walking, you'll find taxi stands and shuttle bus stops just next door or across the street. Monorail stops are also conveniently close. If your transportation to Vegas is by car, truck or bus, Travelodge South Strip has ample free parking space to leave your vehicle.

We've established that everything you might want
to do is within easy reach of the Travelodge South Strip,
but what does it offer as a place to stay? It is a motel-type
experience. If that's all you're expecting
and you're on a tight budget, you shouldn't
be disappointed. There's an included cold Continental
breakfast, consisting of juice, coffee, muffins, cereal,
yogurt and/or fruit, available each morning in the reception
area. This is not the sumptuous buffet you get at most Las Vegas hotels, but
good fare to get you going. Pick up your daily free USA
Today newspaper with your Continental breakfast. You'll
also find that the reception staff is on-duty 24-hour
The outdoor swimming pool is heated year-round. It's not the expansive beaches of Mandalay Bay, but a good morning refresher before you head out to have some fun or for an afternoon of relaxing after a long night out. A really good point is that the Las Vegas Travelodge has free high speed Internet access, unlike most of the big resorts. Many other hotels charge a steep rate. There is also a guest coin-operated laundry on the Strip.
The Travelodge South Strip rooms are basic motel-type, but are large and comfortable. Access to rooms is directly from the exterior corridors. Double and king size beds are available, and there are rooms with two double beds for families or small groups. There's a desk and easy chair. The best and most quiet rooms face the pool. All rooms have color cable television with HBO, telephone, coffee maker, hairdryer and in-room safe.
