  • There are dozens of hotels on or near the Las Vegas Strip, ranging from budget-friendly accommodations to luxury suites.
  • Because resort owners make most of their money on the casino floor rather than hotel rooms, some of the finest hotels in the world are available at a fraction of what they would cost anywhere else.
  • Four star and up hotels in Las Vegas can regularly be found for under $100 per night. To narrow the field and highlight the best, we scoured reviews and guest feedback, coupled with our own experiences, to select the best affordable hotels in Las Vegas for under $100 per night in low season.
  • Real all Insider Picks hotel reviews here.

Las Vegas is filled with eye-popping entertainment and attractions - and plenty of potential ways to drop a boatload of cash. But that doesn't always extend to your hotel. Sin City can be the perfect place to score truly luxurious lodging for a price so low it could seem like a typo.

That's because Vegas resort operators make a huge chunk of their profits not on your room rate, but down on the casino floor, where the house always has the advantage. Cheap room rates also attract more guests who then spend their money on slots and tables.

But cheap prices don't mean dismal rooms. Far from it. The city sets a high bar for accommodations at any price, even for a two-figure price tag - yes, well under $100, and in many cases under $50. Beware when booking though, as a resort fee could inflate that rate much higher. I've seen rooms for $70 per night with an $80 daily resort fee.

Of course, in high season or during big events, all rates are subject to change and starting price points can soar.

To highlight the best, we rounded up hotels rated four stars or higher, with a prime location on or near the Las Vegas Strip, that are beloved by guests with top reviews on Trip Advisor, excellent Booking.com ratings - and based on our own past stays.

And if you find yourself with extra budget, read our list of the best luxury hotels in Las Vegas.

Sahara Las Vegas

Sahara Las Vegas
Book Sahara Las Vegas starting at $36 per night

After a stint as the SLS Las Vegas, this property has returned to the building's original roots as the Sahara Las Vegas. As part of the rebrand, the property underwent a $150 million revamp, including an updated casino, renovated hotel rooms and corridors, an upgraded spa, and new hotel lobby.

I found the entry-level rooms to be well-appointed and sleek and offered at a stunning bargain with rates regularly available under $50 in lower seasons. It's also one of the most convenient places to stay near the Las Vegas Convention Center. I even spotted prices as low as $60 during big events such as CES, proving deals can be found even at busier times.

Trip Advisor ranking: 97 out of 272 hotels in Las Vegas

Booking.com rating: 8.2 out of 10

Pros: Newly renovated rooms with a convenient location right near the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Cons: While new, the hotel isn't as glitzy as some of the huge Las Vegas Strip resorts.

Palms Las Vegas

Palms Las Vegas
Book Palms Casino Resort Las Vegas starting at $46 per night

Palms Casino Resort recently completed a massive property-wide $690 million renovation with newly revamped rooms and suites available at shockingly low prices. Standard rooms can be booked for as low as $50.

I felt downright pampered in my room, with a striped marble bathroom, deep soaking tub, and 65-inch TVs. The Palms is also home to a restaurant from famed chef Bobby Flay, and a brand new spa which sprawls over three stories. Plus, the buffet is only $17, a fraction of what it costs elsewhere.

TripAdvisor ranking: 125 of 272 hotels in Las Vegas

Booking.com rating: 7.8 out of 10

Pros: Gorgeous new rooms and suites are available for extremely cheap prices, with plenty of amenities, food and drink on-site.

Cons: This property is not located on the Strip. It's an easy ride, but won't be walkable. Additionally, the $39 daily resort fee will inflate otherwise cheap nightly rates.

Planet Hollywood Las Vegas

Planet Hollywood Las Vegas
Book Planet Hollywood Las Vegas starting from $54 per night

With nice rooms available squarely in the two-figure range, Planet Hollywood over-delivers on value. I also enjoy staying here for how electric the energy feels within the hotel. The casino floor always feels lively, and there is top-tier dining from the likes of Gordon Ramsay, and designer stores at the Miracle Mile Shops, all on-site.

Planet Hollywood is also a great spot to just chill out. The Spa by Mandara is excellent and the pool boasts dozens of cabanas and the only Vegas pool with a wave machine.

TripAdvisor ranking: 38 out of 272 hotels in Las Vegas

Booking.com rating: 8.5 out of 10

Pros: Excellent location right in the center of the Las Vegas Strip for easy exploring.

Cons: While the rooms appear nice, some negative online reviews cite they're in need of renovation. Book an upgraded room to avoid this risk.

Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino

Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino
Book Paris Las Vegas starting from $55 per night

As the name implies, rooms at Paris Las Vegas feel European-inspired, with a fashionable color palette, Versailles-inspired fixtures, and chic marble counters. Plus, there's plenty to do on-property that makes staying here exciting, including dining at Gordon Ramsay Steak, or 110 feet above the Strip in the Eiffel Tower Restaurant. I suggest relaxing by the Soleil Las Vegas pool to enjoy a view of the tower, or get pampered at the full-service Voie spa and salon.

Trip Advisor ranking: 58 or 272 hotels in Las Vegas

Booking.com rating: 8.2 out of 10

Pros: Low prices for a property with a fun, exciting reputation and a center-strip location in the middle of all the action.

Cons: Critics point out a lack of variety with slot machines and a ho-hum buffet.

Signature at MGM

Signature at MGM
Book Signature at MGM from $56 per night

The Signature is an all-suite hotel set back from the MGM Grand's main resort and casino, but is still easily accessible to it by fully indoor walkways. There's no casino on-site at the Signature, which means the crowd is less rowdy, and the hotel feels peaceful. Rooms are quiet, yet still walking distance to the action.

My colleague used the Chase Sapphire Reserve card to book here and scored extra perks such as free upgrade, late checkout, and complimentary food and beverage credit. Spacious suites include spa baths, flat screen TVs, separate sitting areas, and impressively outfitted kitchenettes for an apartment-like experience.

I've felt right at home (and saved money) by cooking my own breakfast with appliances much fancier than the ones in my own house.

Trip Advisor ranking: 29 out of 272

Booking.com rating: 8.9 out of 10

Pros: Luxe suites with high-end kitchenettes that are a respite from the frenetic pace of the Strip's casinos and party atmosphere.

Cons: Though it's fully connected to the MGM Grand, it can be a long walk and some might view the location away from the main Strip as a mark against it.

Vdara Las Vegas

Vdara Las Vegas
Book Vdara Las Vegas from $61 per night

Another central, non-gaming option, Vdara is located adjacent to Aria at CityCenter and is a totally smoke-free and casino-free property. This makes it a great option for those who prefer to focus on work, relaxing, or traveling with kids in tow.

The all-suite property has amenities like kitchenettes with microwaves, stove tops, fridges, and cookware. Add an additional $50 per night and bring your pup along, too.

Trip Advisor ranking: 46 out of 272 hotels in Las Vegas

Booking.com rating: 8.8 out of 10

Pros: Vdara is an all-suite, smoke-free property that might feel less chaotic, and cheaper than Aria, while still enjoying easy access to its amenities.

Cons: If you want to be able to smoke and gamble right downstairs, you'll want to stay elsewhere.

Caesars Palace Las Vegas

Caesars Palace Las Vegas
Book Caesars Palace from $70 per night

Caesars is one of the Strip's older properties, but it's always iconic and attracts bold-faced names and ventures. Recently, that includes Lisa Vanderpump's new Vanderpump Cocktail Garden restaurant, as well as celebrity chef spots from Gordon Ramsay, Bobby Flay, Guy Savoy, and Nobu Matsuhisa, and of course, the Mariah Carey residency at the 4,100-seat Colosseum at Caesars Palace theater.

There are 4,000 guest rooms in six towers, many of which have been smartly renovated with marble bathrooms and flat-screen TVs. Among my favorite features here — although not always the best thing for a budget-minded trip — is the attached Forum Shops mall.

TripAdvisor ranking: 28 of 272 hotels in Las Vegas

Booking.com rating: 8.3 out of 10

Pros: Excellent quality celebrity-backed dining and entertainment, plus the Forum Shops mall.

Cons: Caesars is iconic, but it's far from one of the strip's newest properties and can feel quite crowded when the casino is packed, or a show is happening. If you're looking for a relaxing hotel, consider another option from this list.

Aria Las Vegas

Aria Las Vegas
Book Aria Las Vegas from $79 per night

Located on the Las Vegas Strip within the CityCenter complex, Aria is a glittering curvilinear property with a 150,000-square-foot casino, 16 restaurants, and more than 4,000 rooms. Opened just a decade ago, rooms still feel brand new with fully tricked-out tech. A one-touch room control system operates features like lighting and climate control, and I've felt pretty pampered by making those changes without even having to move around the room.

Plus, Hakkasan Group's Jewel nightclub is located here, as is a huge spa with 62 treatment rooms, and three pools including the Liquid pool club for grown folks.

TripAdvisor ranking: 61 of 272 hotels in Las Vegas

Booking.com rating: 8.7 out of 10

Pros: High-end technology-driven rooms with a central Strip location.

Cons: Some people complain of pricey food on property, which can cumulatively counter bargain-priced rooms.

The Venetian Las Vegas

The Venetian Las Vegas
Book The Venetian Las Vegas starting from $100 per night

This five-star Las Vegas Strip resort can quickly go above $100 in busier seasons, but if you travel midweek or in winter, you might find a rate right around $100 (before the daily fee, however). For a high-end hotel with 80 restaurants — including Thomas Keller's Bouchon — a glittering casino, the Grand Canal Shoppes, and pool deck that covers 1.2 acres, that's a tremendous value.

All rooms are suites, and huge, starting at 650 square feet. I've stayed here often for work, as the Venetian connects to the Sands Expo & Convention Center, and have enjoyed luxuriating in a suite with a sunken sitting area, dining table, and two high-def TVs. Each also has a luxurious bathroom with oversized soaking tub, separate glass-enclosed shower, and marble counters. Guests are also granted access to the Canyon Ranch Spa Club gym.

TripAdvisor ranking: 25 of 272 hotels in Las Vegas

Booking com rating: 9.0 out of 10

Pros: Sprawling, all-suite resort with access to some of Vegas' best attractions, entertainment, and dining, all located on-site.

Cons: While luxurious, the Venetian is not as posh-feeling as its newer sister property, the Palazzo, which tends to also be more expensive.
