Hey Beena. Sounds like a great trip. Here's a tip if you're flexible. Don't do a weekend. Las Vegas hotels are really good at pricing their rooms, so on the weekends they are really expensive but mid-week they are actaully REALLY cheap. 

For example, I was just looking at suites at the The Signature at MGM Grand and found this 950 square foot SUITE for $110 per night if you go mon-wed. If you go thurs-sunday the same suite costs $337/night!! For $110/night this is a great room and would be awesome for an anniversary. 

What ever you decide, I'd definetly try to go mid week and save A LOT of money and stay at nice place. If you want to look at just suites you can try using www.thesuitest.com, it's a good new site.

I agree with Jr. J, Las Vegas is definitely more wallet friendly during the weekdays. That also goes for more than just Hotels, you can also save on airfare, if you come Mon-Wed. Las Vegas can be cheap, and there is tons of things to do on the Strip or anywhere in Vegas for free and are great for anyone on a budget. So, as Jr. J said, weekdays in Vegas are the best and cheapest times to visit and there are many things to do when you're on a budget in Las Vegas!

If you are looking for something pretty cheap you can checkout Trump Hotel Las Vegas or Circus Circus Hotel & Casino both are pretty cheap.

I'm a firm believer in never staying off-strip in Vegas, as most everything you'll want to do and see will be so much more convenient if you're staying on the strip - specifically near the City Center / Caesar's Palace "corridor".

However for the budget of $100/night for a weekend, staying on the Strip, you're kind of limited to  ExcaliburLuxor Hotel and CasinoBally's Casino.  I would lean toward Bally's for location.

If you're more flexible and able to avoid weekends, especially Saturday night, your options open up a little, and you can start to include  New York New York Hotel & Casino.

If you choose to stay off strip, the tandem of  The Palms Hotel and  Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino make for great options that will be within your budget on the weekends and below your budget during the week.

Hope this helps!

Dude, the best deal is the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino. Very inexpensive rooms and they are nicer than a lot of rooms on the Strip. Nugget's pool was voted one of the top 10 resort pools in the world on some vacation show a while back. They also have low limits for gambling. If you want to visit the strip, it's a short drive/cab ride away. If you want to see a great show for cheap or free, check out Frankie Moreno at Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower. I'd recommend liking him on Facebook too because he sometimes posts offers for free tickets to fill empty seats on the day of the show. Have fun!

Hey Beena. If you want a real budget stay in Vegas, and want a glimpse of real, old Vegas, try spending a night or two downtown on Fremont Street Experience The El Cortez Hotel & Casino is a seriously old school converted motel that has gone super hipster with retro furniture, big neon lights and a cute and cozy cocktail bar called The Parlour at El Cortez. It's within walking distance from Fremont Street Experience, where all of the original Vegas casinos stood, as well as the Vegas version of NYC transplant bar Don't Tell Mama, and Emergency Arts - all hangouts for Vegas locals. It's not exactly the Strip, but it's a cab ride away and a totally different experience.

I'd strongly recommend the MGM Grand Las Vegasor Caesars Palace, I found nice deals on hotelscheap.org for about 60~80$ a night even at the weekends which is really cheap for these hotels! Platinum Hotel is also very nice, although it's not directly located on the strip. Depends on where you wanna go and what you wanna see cause many hotels which are off the strip are hard to reach at night so you'll have a hard time going home. At least you'll be together but I'm not sure you wanna spend all day wandering around ;) have fun !!!

Hi Beena,

Annemarie's alternate suggestion of checking out downtown Las Vegas is great. The recently opened Downtown Grand has nice rooms at really affordable rates and is close to a ton of new restaurants, shops and places that have sprung up thanks to Zappos' founder Tony Hsieh's revitalization efforts with The Downtown Project. Some reasons to check out the downtown area:

The  Fremont Street Experience is a must for tourists.

Want amazing breakfast? Try Eat.

Like Thai food? Check out  Le Thai link

Check out the The Mob Museum, and then go grab some really good pizza at Pizza Rock link. (my favorite is the Pizza Romana #1)

There's a 50-foot tall fire-breathing praying mantis sculpture at the entrance to the Downtown Container Park. It'll be opening soon with a bunch of specialty shops, food places and other cool things to see.

There is a video game arcade bar called Insert Coins. Also check out  Commonwealth on the corner of 6th and Fremont (across the street from Insert Coins).

Coffee and a spicy beef brisket sandwich?  The Beat Coffeehouse & Records 

You can also get a free tour of Zappos' new building (the former city hall). 

There's a lot going on and it's definitely worth checking out if you're interested in seeing what locals are up to.

The City View Studio Trump International Hotel Las Vegas is in reach for $100 per night on some weekends (probably the only 5-star hotel on the strip within that price range). Other good alternatives for less than $100 per night weekends include The Palms Hotel and Paris Hotel And Casino and Hard Rock Hotel and Casino featuring HRH Tower Suites.  Happy travels!

Gold Coast Hotel & Casino is across from The Palms Hotel - a little bit off the strip with shuttles to the strip and great pricing!
