YES!!!

I used to pay about $280 a night at MGM (basic room)... now I pay $52. That is a HUGE savings!

Too bad I usually lose all savings within an hour of slot play

A Holiday Inn here may be equal to a Station Casino there.. A Bellagio would be the Four Seasons of Cleveland which is $300 +
I travel to Cleveland frequently and never pay over $40 a night on Priceline / Hotwire for places like the Marriott or the Holiday Inn Select in Strongsville.

In Omaha, you can do similar UNLESS it is the Warren Buffet meeting OR the College World Series.

Orleans has been offering deals in the $30-40 range and I DON'T gamble. In fairness, I have stayed there on business on a number of occasions.
