      I have got to say, I usually hold nothing but disdain for the inexpensive Las Vegas alternatives to large hotels. Basically, if you are paying less than fifty dollars per night, first of all you should not be going to Las Vegas: it is an expensive place, and you will run up a tab you cannot deal with. Secondly, places that are under this threshold tend to be of such low quality that I am surprised anyone goes to them at all (though the fact that they are in business seems to indicate that someone is going there) but I have got to say, in all honesty, that

      the Palace Station is quite good. Granted, it is no Luxor, nor even a Stratosphere, but I am compelled to give it a positive review simply based on its price.

      I will discuss its greatest draw first: the price. You can expect to pay perhaps twenty five dollars per night when you stay at the Palace Station. Now, I must say, that this sounds awfully cheap, and it is, but think of it this way: it is a mere fraction of other hotels, all of which you can visit and attend for shows, food, or whatever anyway. Basically, if you are frugal, or simply not nearly as wealthy as ...

      • some of the other people who go to Las Vegas, the Palace Station is not only a good option, but it can be seen as an excellent option! Given that it is a fraction of the price, you can forgive this wealth hound when he says that it bucks some of the stereotypes of inexpensive Las Vegas hotels: the casino in it and the casinos it is adjacent to are all fully equipped (slots, black jack, poker, sports betting, and other things), and thus it offers a great alternative.

        Now, for some negatives: because of the price, (which makes these things hard to call negatives) there are pronounced drawbacks,

        such as the small room size and the lack of food options that are apparent in the Palace Station. These issues are not helped by the fact that the service in the hotel is generally poor. I cannot truly blame the staff; they are probably not nearly as well paid as the staff at other hotels is, and thus it is as much the management’s fault as anyone’s.

        All in all, if you are cheap, frugal, or just poor, the Palace Station is a good alternative to some of the mega hotels on the strip. I do not recommend it per se, but it is a good fall back option.
