The MGM's HR department employs a lot of people who are PAID to answer questions like this.

Why not ask them? I'm sure they're a far better resource than us.

PS:
The budget suites off west flamingo (near the Orleans) (a member of CD is staying there)
Is quiet and nice (So she says) I don't know if they have ADA friendly rooms, though

That's West Tropicana, not Flamingo.

I would not want to stay at one of those weekly places. If you are going to spend at least a month or two somewhere temporarily look on craigslist for furnished places that rent month to month or 3 month minimum. Most of them will be on the east side around UNLV and the airport. I would much rather stay there. Often times they will include all utilities or just exclude electric.

Their prices will often be the same as weekly places. 180*4 = $720 a month. You can probably find a real decent place for less than that in the area I referenced above.

I had an employee that moved here from OC stay at the weekly rental place by Food4Less on LV Blvd S, less hookers, drug dealers, than Trop. YMMV.

Very untrue. I looked at this option and while CL does have a lot of options, they are not the same when you actually talk to the renter. Suddenly a lot of fees pop up.

@ OP- I did this for 5 months for a job I had there and it is the best option for someone who isn't planning on staying there perm. Although I met a lot of people who had been in these for years. By far the best weekly in vegas is the one I stayed at Manor Suites, yes pricey but when I was there they had a deal going for 199 week. Now remember, the first month at any, even the Budget Suites they charge tax and it isn;t cheap. But once the month finishes you only pay the monthly rate plus a small fee like 7 dollars or something. I do agree with other poster the best Budget Suites is the one on S Las Vegas blvd by the Food 4 Less, but it is in a inconvenient spot and they will put you in a room that is older for thier 179 week price. One iof the newer rooms closer to the office(safer) came out to same price as Manor Suites. Manor Suites is not too far from it and is very well located on transit, as you are blind am sure you may need transit. Also Manor Suites is right across from the Outlet mall and they have the signals that beep when you cross due to all the toruists that go there. It is also by the Gold line which takes you to the transit center. Always make sure you are upfront with the workers they can be airheaded and not caring, i was very persistant on the room I wanted and got it, otherwise I would have ended up in back with,well some shady characters. Stay in the fronts, always safer and well lit.

Another Budget Suite I liked as it was close to my work, didn't stay there but passed it and had friends who stayed there, was the one on Rancho Dr. Yes it is in N Las Vegas but it looks clean and safe. Bonus is it is right across from the Fiesta and Rancho Casinos. Great casinos for locals. I don't like the Flamigo or Trop locations they are ok but too shady for me. Good luck!!

Blind employee of MGM, i just saw you will be employed with MGM? How will you be getting to work, by transit or will have a ride? If you are taking transit definetely look into the Manor Suites as it has the Gold line. It will take you directly in front of MGM all you have to do is croos street at outlet then transfer at the South terminal, then will drop you in front. If you stay at the Budget at S Las Vegas it is good only if you work daytime or evenings. That bus line cuts off at certain time of night, then coming back you'd have to cross street with no signals. Am not sure of any weeklys around MGM but if so the bus lines on those streets are constant like every 15 minutes or so.

I politely disagree with laina, I just rented a 2 bd/2ba apartment in the area I referenced above. Nice condo community, month to month for $650, simple lease, furnished, clean and quiet. It's in a real residential area with real citizens around. Not the trash you get when renting a weekly place. A no brainer for me.
