I want to try living in Vegas for about a month or two. I am trying to make a living playing poker and before I bring my furniture/car out I would like to "keep books" and see if I can hack it. Any suggestions on where to live. An hotel would be nice, but I'm not looking to overspend. Trying to keep it under 1500/month and stay somewhere between the strip and downtown.

Budget Suites. It is traditional. Loaded with other wannabes. Convenient and mildly dangerous. Goes with the Vegas experience.

And good luck. Most who go that route end up back on their day jobs.

The suites on the South Strip are plenty safe, such as the Manor and the Emerald. I think they are in your price range, too.

I actually had a professor at UNLV that was a professional poker player. He won a lot of money, made a good living from it. He considered himself a full time poker player and part time university professor.
But most people would end up losing their money rather than being on top. Be careful or you could lose all your money. Even if you do good for a month and decide to move your stuff there you could lose everything six months down the road.

There have been many many people moving to Vegas to try and make a living playing poker. For most of them, they ended up going back where they came from.
Now if you come out here and play poker part time and get a real job, your chances may be better then those that thought they could do it for a living.

I did a search online, turns out there are 7 reviews, all bad about the place...LoopNet even has the place up for sale so who knows how much longer it will stay up or be converted to condos...that area west of Maryland is pretty dangerous...I would look for something farther east or farther west of the strip, maybe even a little south...There are not many safe apartment complexes in Las Vegas anyway.
