Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
Just got back from a long walk down the Las Vegas strip - 3 most outstanding thoughts - no one has ever seen a dog before, you can drink in public, and there are lots of families (I came here with mine when I was very young and got lost for the first time when I wandered into the Disney Store). The drive was 6 hours with 4 stops - the little towns …
... who rush out of the casino having lost all their money?
What a ghastly place.
The residents seem to live in trailers, perched on the side of dusty tracks up the surrounding hills, with their several 4x4s parked alongside and the German Shepherd chained up alongside.
It was almost a relief to get to the old Mardi Gras! It seemed like home. This room has a light and fan which won't turn off in the bathroom, another light which won't turn off ...
... a cab to Old Vegas. On our way we saw the Pawn Shop from the show 'Pawn Stars". We went to the Fremont Hotel to watch the Fremont experience light show which was really cool. It had a huge LED screen running across the roof out which is the largest in the world (5 blocks long). All the bars and hotels had thousands of lights lit up. It was quite a sight when they were all on flashing. We did some souvenir shopping and had ...
... and butt cheeks hanging out all over.
Since we were starving and had no reservations, we went to the restaurant Noodles (Asian restaurant). We ordered a bit too much food; but it was OK. After dinner we walked through the conservatory. The flowers were beautiful Easter themed with a caterpillar, ladybugs and real butterflies. To balance the beauty, my sister comes up appalled and tells me "Kim, I just walked into that guy's ****" - needed to hit ...
... So I sat there and watched Paula's $20 slowly disappear into nothing, I decided to have a go at my very first time at gambling. I played this stupid electronic roulette game. I slid $20 in that I borrowed from Paula and bet on red. I was winning some $1 dollar bets, then I was loosing some. Then, I started to fall behind. Paula was a little bored with the slow steady progress so I put a $2 dollar bet on black 22... And won. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rodeway Inn Convention Center Las Vegas
I was surprised by how nice the motel is for the money. Upon driving up to the front facade, I was a little leery but once again, the rooms were pleasant and clean. The location is nice...just minutes from the LV Conf Cntr and Stardust and Riviera on the strip.
If you are looking for fancy, glitzy drama, this is not the place. However if you want a clean, comfortable room in a safe location close to the strip/Convention center, this is the place for you.
Cheap and convenient
Just stayed there last week and what I can say is the following:
+Location: Just 300 m from the Strip. If you go there from the airport by coach, ask the driver to drop you at the Stardust as it is the closest one.
+Room: Big, clean and with anything you need within a low budget of course. You enter the room without going through the lobby.
+Price: Quite reasonable balancing everything.
-Casino: It does not have a casino and the closest one is the Stardust.
-Security: For some people, being off the strip is not 100% safe, specially at night.
Stayed at the VR during CES 2005. A small tip for Vegas newbies: if the cab driver asks you if you want to go the Interstate route from McCarran, just say, "Not the scenic route, just go up Paradise instead." You'll save half the fare.
I just returned from a week out west and spent a weekend in Las Vegas, staying at the Villa Roma Motel. The hotel room was great! The room was clean and spacious; the bed was very comfortable.
I stayed here due to the price and proximity to the Convention Center. Other reviews said that it was within walking distance to the CC. It IS, but... not in the middle of summer. And also not a good place to walk at nighttime if you're a single woman. It was a bit far, so ended up driving to the Hilton every day and valet parking my car ($5 per day). Not bad, when the prices for this motel were less than half what the Hilton charges.
before booking any room, you need to ask yourself "what am I looking for in a hotel" this greatly effects star ratings ..
This motel was recommended to us by a friend. I am very picky when it comes to motel/hotel rooms. My first choice was a big Hotel/Casino on the strip, however my husband convinced me to try this motel. We are frequent visitors to Vegas.
I go on business trips to las vegas from time to time and I was looking for bargains. I ordered a room from this hotel but I wasn't expecting much because of the price I got. When I got here, I got a room that was renovated. I was pleasantly suprised. There were no smoke or smells and it was relatively clean. Although there was no high speed internet or gambling, I just wanted a nice place to stay. No bellagio, but good for the price.
I visit Vegas monthly for business and I usually check out prices on my favorite travel site and always had good luck until I decided to stay at the Villa Roma. It's kind of like a Motel 6 encased in a barrier with prison bars to keep the danger out. The first room I went it had a leaky toilet so I asked for another. I settled for the second room. It was depressing. Although it was suppose to be non smoking, it reeked of smoke and alcohol. There was a hole in the wall in the bathroom. It looked dark and dingy. At 3 in the morning there was the clanging of the steel door as people ran on the walkway at the second level. This is only my personal observations. Maybe yours will be different.
