FAQs: Cheap Las Vegas hotels
Where is Las Vegas?
Las Vegas is located in the southern tip of the state of Nevada, near the borders of both California and Arizona.
What is the best time of year to visit Las Vegas?
Las Vegas is located in a desert climate, so you can expect hot, hot summers and cool winters. No matter when you visit, it’s likely to be chilly at night. Early winter and spring, however, offer the nicest, mildest weather when it will be the most comfortable to stroll the Las Vegas Strip or lounge at the pool.
Though, if you’re planning to spend most of your time indoors on the casino or convention floor, the weather likely won’t be a big factor when considering the time of year to visit.
What are the cheapest and most expensive times of year to visit Las Vegas?
You’ll often find the cheap deals on hotels in Las Vegas midweek in summer, or in the winter, after New Year’s Day, through early spring. Once the temperatures turn milder, expect prices to rise and stay high through the end of the year.
Of course, much of Las Vegas tourism revolves around a robust convention calendar, which can also drive up hotel prices. Holidays too, see an influx of crowds.
Why are Las Vegas hotels cheap?
Because Vegas resort operators make a huge chunk of their profits down on the casino floor, where the house always has the advantage, cheap room rates are offered to attract guests who will then spend their money on slots and tables.
Beware when booking though, as a resort fee could inflate hotel prices much higher. I’ve seen rooms for $50 per night with an $80 daily resort fee. Of course, in high season or during big events, all rates are subject to change, and starting price points can soar.
Is it safe to stay in hotels right now?
The CDC now says fully vaccinated people can safely travel in the US. And, with added caution, experts we spoke to said it is safe to stay in a hotel.
Of course, there’s no guarantee of safety when it comes to travel. We recommend following CDC guidelines and wearing a mask in public, using hand sanitizer, and following social distancing.
Is Las Vegas open right now?
Las Vegas is open to visitors, though, depending on where you go, the experience may look different.
