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.

THIS PLACE IS NOT AS BAD AS MANY PEOPLE CLAIM
PostedDecember 31, 2013
I stayed here with my wife, mother in law, and a good friend of mine. 2 separate rooms. I don't see what the complaints are from the people who have stayed here. Yes, it's not a 4 or 5 star hotel. That's obvious! But it's a pretty relaxing location. My room was very basic but comfortable. Very clean, and had great beds. No funky smells or stains like others report. I walked around the hallways to look around and yes you see some chips on the wall here and there, but seriously...that's a reason you knock a hotel down?? for some itty bitty tiny chips?? Ridiculous!!!
The casino is small at the moment. Seems like there is still some construction/renovations still going on. But it's looking great! Better than how it looked when it was The Imperial Palace. The whole casino floor, the lobby, the shops...everything was clean and well maintained. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. There check in time is at 4pm. I arrived to Vegas and the casino at 9am. They offer a early check in for $16 which was AWESOME!! Did not have to wait hours to get into our rooms. They charge there resort fee which should not be surprising to ANYONE!!! Every hotel in Vegas (excluding some downtown Vegas hotels) charge a resort fee!!!! YOU can't avoid the fee, so no need to get angry there. I just told you :)
The parking is not the greatest. You have to enter through Las Vegas Blvd oooor on Koval Ave due to the construction of the big Ferris Wheel in the back (which is looking great by the way) You have the monorail as well that stops right at The Quad. Overall, this was a great experience and the hotel was not as bad as many claim. I come to Vegas 6-7 times a year so I know my share of hotels. And the location...THE BEST!!!!!!

Guests of Palace Station will enjoy an extensive array of amenities during their stay as well as a prime location just west of the Las Vegas Strip. This laid-back resort is also conveniently situated next to the I-15. Built in 1976 on 38 acres and originally opened as "The Casino," it became Palace Station, the flagship property for the Station Casinos empire, in 1991. Although the resort has undergone various renovations, including the addition of a 21-story room tower, it's kept a down-to-earth vibe, making it ideal for travelers on a budget who are seeking a good hotel value.The rooms and suites at Palace Station are outfitted for comfort, with things like cable TVs, hair dryers and wireless internet access. An outdoor pool with a hot tub, a fully equipped fitness center, a business center, a gift shop and a courtesy airport/Strip shuttle will also enhance your vacation experience.From classic to ethnic, guests can indulge their taste buds with a wide range of restaurants. Cabo Mexican Restaurant has a fun salsa bar and serves a menu of authentic flavors from south of the border. Pasta Cucina's talented staff cook innovative Italian delights that will please every palate. And the Oyster Bar is an 18-seat, live-action kitchen preparing freshly shucked oysters, steamed clams and homemade seafood pastas.For quick meals, Palace Station boasts the cheerful Grand Café, the all-you-can-eat Feast Buffet, the Food Express Chinese Restaurant, four fast food eateries (Subway, Johnny Rockets, Bonanno's New York Pizzeria and Starbucks) and 24-hour room service.Lively evenings can be spent in Jack's, a pub and sports bar. Local bands also play here several nights a week. The Traxx Bar and Trackside Bar are two more fine spots for cocktails -- including the beloved 99-cent margarita.The casino floor is always busy at Palace Station. You'll find plenty of action in the bingo hall, keno lounge or race and sports book, which boasts 230 seats and 44 large video screens. There's a nonsmoking poker room along with numerous table games and more than 1,600 slot and video poker machines. The resort is unique in that it has an Asian table games area, where guests can try their luck at pai gow tiles and both mini and midi baccarat.Ideal for meetings and special celebrations, Palace Station also features more than 20,000 square feet of event space. It's equipped with state-of-the-art amenities including projectors, DVD players and other technological devices. Catering and other services are available as well.Palace Station is within walking distance of several other restaurants and a short drive from downtown and the Strip -- putting guests near the epicenter of all the big happenings in Las Vegas.-- By Renée LiButti

Honestly...pretty tranquil place
PostedOctober 20, 2013
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for the very first time. We chose this place since it had a pretty good deal and since it's the sister hotel to all the other Station Casinos. Overall, it was a great experience. We stayed in the courtyards which is in the back and side of the Main tower. The room was good. Not fancy or anything but comfy. The bathroom has a shower only built in. No tub. The good thing about the courtyard rooms is that the parking is right outside your building, which is fantastic. No need for long walks, or distances from your car. There are also security guards on bikes cruising by all the time. Overall, our visit was good. The buffet is great just like the other sister casinos. The Grand Café is great too and open 24hrs. The only thing is that the resort fee is $16.99 not $14.99 like Vegas.com claims. But we will definitely stay here again

Do you have early check-in/late check out and if so cost?

They do offer an early check in for a fee of $16. I did not ask about a late check out but I'm 100% sure they offer it and with a fee as well. Hope this was helpful
