We are going to Vegas in June. I was wondering who you go through to book rooms there? We can't spend more then $60 a night. We are going on a Wednesday and Thursday

I book through whatever hotel it is directly.  You can shop around.  Weekdays are cheaper than weekends unless you are going when a big convention is in town, then all hotels are more.

Do you have a certain hotel in mind? do you want one with a casino attached? I would just google hotels in Vegas

I use hotels.com but I don't book through them since it's third party. I find the area I want to be in and then look for a hotel in my price range and then I call the hotel directly as their online rates are generally cheaper. Just ask for the price you see online.

No nothing to special,  usually we do motel 6 but it being Vegas I wanted to see if I could find something cheaper somewhere else first.  I dont care if there is a casino.  I live in Nevada so Im not going to Gamble.  We are taking the kids to see the cool things on the strip and to Hover Dam.

I checked Circus Circus, we could totally afford them but they only allow 4 people per room, I have 5.

Most hotels in Vegas are made for 2 so you are lucky to find a room for 4.  Circus Circus is about the worst hotel in Vegas and no where that you can walk to the strip.

I decided not to stay there, the lady was rude when I called to ask a question.  I think we may end up at Motel 6 there too, but wanted to see if I could find something cheaper first.  I dont mind driving to a parking garage, parking and walking.  DH is handicap so we dont pay for parking, here in NV.

Remember that the cost of a room in a hotel, motel, etc, is subject to taxes and fees.  So if the max you can spend is $60, you need to find a base-priced room of about $50.  Fire code will NOT allow you to sleep more than 4 people in a room.  If you have a suite, they might allow one additional person on a pull-out in the sitting room.  A suite might be cheaper than 2 rooms. 

Prices vary based upon the time of week, and the time of year.  If you are off the strip, in a motel, it will be cheaper.  If you go off the strip, consult neighborhoodscout, or crimemapping to decide if the area is safe.

So to start, Google "Las Vegas rooms under $60".  It will take you to Orbitz, Kayak, Hotels.com, etc.  search each one, and DO read the reviews.   Especially in Vegas, you get what you pay for.

We stay at motel 6 all the time.  Its looking like we might have to again.  They were about $69 a night.  More then I want to spend.  (I know about the taxes and such.  I have worked for hotels in the past)
