I'm going to be moving from SoCal to LV in the near future, and it's become clear that there are many options and considerations before chosing a permanent apt/condo/home - location, location, location. I know the obvious (avoid the alphabets and areas close to the strip -duh), but think I need to be in town for a month or two so I can look around, before making my choice. So I need some recommendations for temp housing options while looking for a new place. I'm female, 40's, professional, have a well behaved dog (35lbs) - looking for quiet & safe. It doesn't have to be resort quality, but honestly those Siegel places look really sketchy, even online. Surely there must be some better short term places than that - recommendations?

This request sets off one of our finer internecine wars. However. There are Marriott Courtyards and Las Quintas that are quite nice. Some at least will take a dog.

There are even nicer places such as Oakwood.

You can also hustle from casino to casino if you can deal with the bad weekends.

If all else fails the Budget Suites. The one on Trop and Wynn, the one on LV Blvd S. and the one on Rancho.

@lvoc - thanks so much for the response and recommendations! I did a site search on the subject and only found threads a couple of years old (probably need to refine my search skills, lol). Definitely didn't mean to hit on a touchy subject or spark a new internecine war. I definitely appreciate your response even more, in light of that history.

I'm making a list of potential places to look at in a few weeks, when I'll pop out for 3 or 4 days, and will add your suggestions. I also have Siena Suites and Copper Creek on the list, though with a lot of the absolutely scathing reviews both have received online, I'm wary.

I'd definitely like to find a place where I can bring my dog, but don't want to bring him to a place that is noisy 24/7, full of kids running loose and other animals that aren't being cared for or supervised properly. I will definitely need to line up a good list of Doggy Day Care and Pet Hotels in the area before the move. (if anyone has any suggestions in that vein, they are most welcome)

remember that a vast majorty if the bad reviews come from people that were evicted for non payment.

Had a customer at my pre-retirement casino that was 86'd for being drunk n disorderly....and slappin a cocktail waitress on the axe....

After whining to me, and then to the hotel manager and getting nowhere he went to every online site he could find and wrote a scathing report about how dirty the hotel was and how disrespectfull the enployees are....[I got named ]

Normally we don't bother to reply to these but I just had to .....

@dynimagelv - haha...good for you for replying; I would have a hard time letting that one pass too.

I'm sure you're right about many of the bad reviews being from disgruntled tenants, but of the recurring themes/complaints listed over the years probably have some merit. The ones about scads of scorpions, roaches, crazy neighbors or common areas covered in dog poop make me cringe, lol.

I don't know what your price range is, but instead of a hotel/motel or one of those skeevy commercial short-term stay places, you might want to check out Vacation Rentals By Owner (VRBO).

VRBO® is Vacation Rentals By Owner

We use Doggie District Pet Resort. They have the dogs outside playing most of the day rather than being cooped up in a cage. It's also staffed 24/7.

That was a lovely turn of phrase. I'm going to post it in the writing forum.

At the rate we get these types of requests, it seems like an inexpensive short-term housing option in a good area (with a good screening process) would be a great investment. Maybe the screening process would make affordability a problem though.
