If you're looking for a Vegas resort with a prime location at the center of the Strip and very affordable prices, a good place to keep at the top of your mind is The Quad Resort & Casino. Right now, it's in the final phases of exterior and interior refurbishment to modernize property. Newly completed elements include the renovated porte cochere, lobby, casino floor and Catalyst Bar. The Quad is also now connected to The Linq, an outdoor entertainment, shopping and dining district that houses the High Roller observation wheel. O'Sheas Casino has also debuted -- with three bars, a beer garden, 11 table games, 15 video poker machines and six beer pong tables. Renovations at The Quad are continuing in the middle section of the casino floor, the spa and at the pool. The Quad is an always-bustling, mid-sized property situated within walking distance from several of the city's most famous resorts -- including Caesars Palace, The Mirage, Bellagio, The Venetian and The Palazzo.The Quad also boasts a Las Vegas Monorail stop, which means you'll have easy access to most of the hotels up and down South Las Vegas Boulevard.Catering to visitors of all ages and from all walks of life, The Quad is not a stuffy, elite-style resort.The amenities are spread throughout the first five floors. The ground floor houses the action-packed casino. It tends to be crowded around the clock. One of focal points in the casino is the Dealertainers pit. You can sit down at blackjack tables where celebrity impersonators dressed as Beyoncé, Elvis, Pink and many more deal the cards. Often, they have to excuse themselves to belt out one of their character's hits from the elevated stage.Take the escalator to the second floor and you'll discover additional entertainment options. Jeff Civillico does comedy juggling and other stunts in the afternoon. You can also see the drag extravaganza "Divas Las Vegas" starring Frank Marino in the evening. Or delight in the drumming mayhem of Recycled Percussion, a group that pounds away on everything from buckets and trash cans to car parts and even their bodies.The place to drink at the resort is Fat Tuesday, where you can order a variety of frozen daiquiris, perfect to cool you down during the hot summer months. Beers and cocktails of all kinds are available in the casino at the Catalyst bar. Or for a sophisticated aperitif head to the fifth floor's Nomiya Lounge.If history is more your thing, check out The Auto Collections. More than 250 classic or historically significant vehicles are being displayed on the fifth floor of the hotel's self-parking garage -- some of which are for sale.?The Quad is home to several great dining options. Chef Guy Fieri, of Food Network's top-rated show "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," has opened his first Las Vegas restaurant -- called Guy Fieri's Kitchen & Bar -- at the north entrance of the resort. South-of-the-border cuisine is offered in the shack-style Quesadilla. The resort has a Hash House A Go Go. The chain restaurant is known for its delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner comfort foods -- which come in oversized portions. Or enjoy a quick bite at the 24-hour Ginseng 3, which features Japanese, Chinese and Korean items.Watch the big games on one of the 12 large screens in the spacious sports book on the third floor. Horse racing fans will be impressed by the stadium-style seating, complete with 230 individual monitors.Work up a sweat in the fitness center. You can get a manicure in The Salon at The Quad (the spa is currently closed for renovation).Clean and comfortable, The Quad's towers feature a variety of accommodations ranging from classic rooms with all the basics to deluxe "luv tub" rooms that have spa tubs thrown into the mix. Plus, pet-loving guests are welcome to bring their four-legged friends (weighing less than 50 pounds) to lodge in the special PetStay rooms.For those wanting to tie the knot, the Silver Sky Chapel features two fine venues: the signature Skyline Chapel and the Southwestern Chapel with a desert motif. The resort has a stretch of souvenir stores located near the room elevators as well. Shops include Amparo, Whiskey Run, Gifts to Go and Relaxation Palace.The Quad is a full-service resort offering value-oriented accommodations. Whether you are coming to party with a group of friends, bringing your family for a vacation or attending a conference, the hotel is sure to suit you.-- By Renée LiButtiNOTE: Due to construction at The Quad, guests may may encounter temporary inconveniences, construction walls and some noise during daytime hours. The Quad's spa and pool are currently closed for remodeling. Guests can use the Beach Club pool at Flamingo Las Vegas or the pools at Paris Las Vegas and the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

Imperial Palace is Under Construction
PostedOctober 1, 2012
The Imperial Palace is undergoing a change right now. The name and decor will change. Right now (10/2012) the front is blocked to vehicles, except for a pedestrian walkway. The rear is under construction. I parked next door. I don't know how this will effect the prices. Time will tell.

Located 40 miles southwest of the Vegas Strip on the California/Nevada state line, Whiskey Pete's Western-themed resort offers a casino, a showroom and a shuttle to the other Primm-area properties, which offer more entertainment options and amenities.It is the first hotel-casino California visitors pass on their way to Las Vegas and the last one they pass on their way home. Part of the Primm Valley trio of resorts at the Nevada/California state line, Whiskey Pete's Hotel & Casino has come a long way since beginning life as a two-pump gas station in the mid 1950s. Now boasting 777 rooms and some truly impressive neighbors, Whiskey Pete's has struck the motherlode.The 36,400-square-foot casino affords those California-bound travelers one last chance to make a run on the tables, while a couple of casual eateries (IHOP and McDonald's) and a full-service bar/lounge sate any desires that remain. The 700-seat showroom has played host to everyone from Crystal Gayle to Gallagher. And free shuttle service (as well as a monorail system that runs on weekends only) is available to Whiskey Pete's sister resorts -- the Primm Valley Resort & Casino and Buffalo Bill's -- just across Interstate 15, both featuring a wealth of must-see attractions and amenities.

Nice rooms.
PostedOctober 1, 2012
Whiskey Pete's is a good deal using Vegas.com.. Better prices than their own web site. Great location when comming into or leaving town. The room was clean and soft beds. Housekeeping was very attentive. The IHOP replaced the Buffet. There is also a McDonald's next to the IHOP. If you still want a buffet, you can go across to Buffalo Bills. The Player's Card does not come with any extras when first getting it. I will wait to see if it is as good as other Casino's Cards.
Now the Registration is a different story. The clerks are very slow. When you arrive, be ready to stand in line for an hour just to get the room. When you get to the counter, the clerks are friendly, but very slow. If you have anything out of the ordinary, (like a reservation from Vegas.com) be ready for them to need to ask someone how to treat you.
And don't expect a receipt. They will not provide one. I was told that my reservation was not through them, so I had to use the print out from Vegas.com. And if you use a Credit Card, they will tell you the Credit Card is your receipt.
