Folks, heading down for a baseball tournament in June and the team suggested getting rooms here. Is this a good choice or are there better alternatives in that same area? Haven't been to Las Vegas in a long time, so I need some feedback on this place. Any feedback would be appreciated. I see there are other hotels in the area and prices all over the place. Don't want to spend a ton of money, but want a clean comfortable safe place.

Thanks.

I'm a big fan of getting the timeshare suites on auction sites. I switched to that
for my previous Vegas vacations as it cost less than a hotel room and provided
me with a much better and spacious sleeping accommodations. My best site for that
is skyauction.com. I was getting a one bedroom suite with separate bedroom, living
room and a full kitchen for about $375 a week. For convenience, I like The Jockey Club
(right under Cosmo) and Carriage House (behind Planet Hollywood). Wyndham
Grand Desert is very nice but quite a long walk from the Strip and there is
a gap late night in their free shuttle service. I'm not sure if they still run the
shuttle service to be honest. Grand Desert also has 2 and 3 bedroom options for
larger groups.

Older second level hotel/casino at the south end of the strip. Reasonable nice with some nice features like swimming pools. Good location near to the I15 and the 215 which provides good access into the LV freeway system. Five minutes to the airport.

There are local casinos that I might recommend but this is a very good choice for access to most of Las Vegas. And it is livable.

They also have a big fancy web site if you want to see what you are getting into.

I,m looking at two hotels right now. Does anyone know of the "Dessert Rose" on Duke Ellington blvd or the Holiday Inn Express on East Tropicana Blvd. Both look like easy parking without all the business of large resorts. Any experience with either of these?

Traffic is horrible in that area but I don't know much about them except driving by after the airport.

Are the playing fields truly all over Greater LV? Or more in one direction?

I personally like the Embassy Suites (non-gaming) on Paradise.

Excalibur tends to get an undeserved bad rap, but I very much enjoy it. Is it luxury? No, but it meets your criteria of clean and comfortable. Before moving to Vegas, we stayed there on a turnaround trip and I thought it was very nice and very clean.
You do smell pot, but that is anywhere on the strip, and for me that nor cigarette smoke bothers me.
If you go to youtube, Dale Mckenzie, Vegas In, and Out, has a great review of the Excalibur. Paula and Dale are long-time, Vegas locals and give honest and great reviews of everything Vegas.

Nothing wrong with the Excalibur.

Are you flying in or driving?

Is the tournament for adults (rather than, say, high school kids)?

I don't mind the Excalibur myself, though I've only ever passed through or played/eaten/show there, never stayed.

My comments were based on the fact that the OP is coming to town for a tourney, where presumably he'll need to get his car in the am and maybe grab some chow quickly. I think the strip properties are gonna be less easy on those two counts.

My daughter used to compete in a sport that frequently came to LV, bouncing between South Point and the LVCC. Other parents would stay on the Strip but we'd stay either at the South Point (which we liked fine), or the Westgate which is a little low-brow but whatever. Other parents' days started an hour earlier just to get some chow and get their car out of parking (valet) and driving over.
