We travel to Las Vegas a few times every year and since it is so expensive to bring luggage we were thinking of doing laundry while we are out there. The closest coing laundry I can find that seems good from the map is basically at the corner of Decatur and Charleston. Can anyone tell me if this is a safe neighborhood?

Thank you,

It is an older neighborhood, just to be safe I would do the laundry during the Day. Sometimes Cleaners will do it for a certain amount of money per pound.

How much luggage are you bringing???? An extra suitcase is what- $25-50 on most airlines? By the time you buy detergent, fabric softener, etc., and feed the machines, it's likely to cost you $10-15 to do a few loads, plus you've got to waste a few hours sitting around in the laundromat- not my idea of "vacation".

FWIW, when we spent two weeks in LV with a 1 y/o and a 3 y/o, we used the facilities at the camping area at Silverton. It was far cleaner than any public laundromat you're likely to find. Those youngsters can really burn through a lot of clothes....

You don't understand it's not the time or money we just want to take the lug out of the luggage. Here is what we do anyway. Most of the time we mail our dirty laundry home or leave it in the hotel room and buy clothes as we need them. If you travel as much as we do you want to make things easier on us. I suppose we could call room service and have them do our laundry for us but that is about the money. We will be in Vegas for an entire week so I am sure we will have a couple of spare hours to do two loads of clothes. This way I can smell fresh when I sit down at the smoky black jack table LOL.

It's not a desirable area, but its safe enough that you'd be able to do laundry without trouble.

I worked in the hotel business for 12+ years back in California, and we never did the guests laundry.
