Used to be, the *Excaliber was an inexpensive place to stay. After a few drinks though, all the castles look alike & we had a little trouble finding the room The Boardwalk was great for a hot dog and a beer (if you like beer). It's been awhile but, the husband & wife that worked there had us in stitches, arguing with each other. (They were only joking.) Have a great trip, Chopstix.

*When I asked the reservationist on the phone, why the room didn't have a bath (only a shower), she said:

"Because, we don't want you in the room. We want you in the casino."

Note to self: Make New Year's Eve reservations early.

Frommer's is the best, IMO

The Z -I didn't go in the Race & Sports Book area. We went one day to the down town area, had a 99 cent shrimp cocktail at the Golden Gate, its served in a sundae glass, about a cup of small shrimp with cocktail sauce on top, No celery or fillers.

You're very welcome, Chopstix. One of the things I like about Frommer's, is that he? gives you the low-down on everything - rather than just prices and ratings. We found some terrific restaurants (Mom & Pop and off-the-beaten path), when I went to San Francisco. Have a great trip, take lots of pictures and tell us everything you ate.

PS I read what he said about most of the restaurants, and think he's right on the money.

Oooooh Las Vegas!! Been going there a couple of times a year since the late 80's (wow-I am getting old!)
for the most part, the strip is too spendy. For a great breakfast, go downtown to the Golden Gate-they have a little cafe in there where you can get your breakfast cooked to order-20$ for 2 people including tip. They also happen to be the home of the famous LV shrimp cocktail 2.99 (get the Jumbo) spicy and delicious!
If you prefer a buffet, the Main Street Station has got a great one (especially for breakfast)
And My wife and I would'nt even consider leaving Las Vegas without a trip to Binions Ranch steakhouse-all glass dining room on the 24th floor, casual dress is OK. The food is fabulous-I always get a blackened ribeye, my wife gets the ChickenFried Lobster. While it is'nt cheap, we usually get out of there for 130.00$, including drinks and a generous tip. And for what its worth, no matter where you are seated, the view is breathtaking! (be sure to go after dark)
Do your homework and listen to the locals-if you cant find a place to eat in the valley-your not hungry!!!
