Fremont Plaza Hotel
Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
We pulled into Vegas after about a 2.5 hour drive and what felt like forever between entering the city limits and actually getting anywhere near the strip. We got to the Motel 6 on East Tropicana (opposite the MGM Grand I think) and got checked in, The room was a bit pokey but beds comfortable enough. There was a few pools available but we passed …
