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.

Decent Room for Cheap-Great Location
PostedMarch 15, 2013
Great location for a low price. The quad is currently undergoing renovation so the casino size is reduced however for the price to stay there it was a good choice. The bed was very comfortable and the love tub was huge (with a shower head in it incase we wanted to take a shower instead of a bath). There were a few stains on the carpet however that did not bother us as all the amenities needed were there. However one thing to note is the cable TV only gets about 10 real channels that aren't vegas informal. However not a big deal being that we didn't spend much time at all in the room.

The architecturally-dynamic M Resort is a gem on the Las Vegas Strip about 10 miles south of Mandalay Bay with unparalleled amenities, service and quality. Sitting on 90 acres of land at an elevation 400 feet higher than any other Strip hotel-casino, M Resort was created for Las Vegas residents by a native of the city, Anthony A. Marnell III. But with unique offerings like a wine cellar and unparalleled views of the valley, this stunning glass-framed hotel is a destination for both locals and Vegas visitors.Marnell designed and hand picked just about all the intricate touches at M Resort, right down the china used in many of the restaurants. His theory is that if you're putting your name on something, you don't want to leave anything to chance.This personal attention is evident in all areas of M Resort, from the hundreds of fresh white Calla lilies in the lobby to M's design, which allows just about every venue to overlook the stunning Villaggio Del Sole Pool and Entertainment Piazza. Even M Resort's meeting and banquet space has a roomy outdoor terrace above the pool, while the state-of-the-art fitness center offers prime views through floor-to-ceiling windows.Standard rooms are upscale but casual with dark tones and custom furniture, modern sound systems, electronic "do not disturb" signs and views of either the valley or mountains. Upon entering the room, guests can place their key card in a designated holder on the wall, which not only keeps it safe, but also turns on the room lights. Remove your key when leaving, and lights will turn off 30 seconds later, helping to conserve energy if you forget to turn out the lights. There are a few stellar restaurant options for guests. Anthony's Steakhouse serves steak and ocean cuisine. Try a decadent Imperial Burger in Anthony's Gourmet Burgers & Brews. Marinelli's Pasta Bar offers a variety of small-plate Italian dishes. And buffet-in-the-round Studio B serves house beer and wine as part of its overall price. Attached is the Studio B show kitchen for private cooking demonstrations, which are then showcased on 117 screens within the buffet.Chef Seonkyoung Longest, the winner of Food Network's "Restaurant Express," has opened an eatery called Jayde Fuzion that showcases her contemporary Asian sharing dishes. Menu items combine Japanese, Chinese and Korean flavors. There is also an interactive sushi bar.Listings of past Super Bowl point spreads and MVPs decorate the walls of Vig Deli, which offers classic junk food like wings and pizza, perfect for those watching a game in the attached race and sports book. At 92,000 square feet, the casino also includes close to 1,847 video and slot machines, 64 table games and a gorgeous high limit lounge with view. Those looking for something stiffer than soda have plenty of options including the 32 Degree Draft Bar, the M Bar and a lobby bar on the casino level and a wine cellar/tasting room with self-serve wine dispensers, Hostile Grape Wine Cellar, below.The therapeutic Spa Mio is an oasis of relaxation with 16 treatment rooms, a sauna and a steam room. Even the attached salon offers shampoo stations with electronically operated massage chairs.One of the many ways M Resort caters to locals is by offering several different property entrances with nearby parking. Those stopping by to use the spa can park and enter close to the spa. Those interested in placing a bet can park and enter by the race and sports book. There is also a gas station on the property. 
 

Does the shuttle to the strip have a cost ?

Yes there is a cost for the shuttle from the airport to the strip. You can either book it ahead of time via the telephone numbers listed on vegas.com or whenever you get off the plane and get your luggage there are desks by the exit doors to go outside of the airport. You can purchase a shuttle ride at these locations also. Depending on the amount of people in your group a taxi maybe the cheaper of options. If you have two or more people I would consider a taxi as you don't have to go through all the extra stops on the shuttle that aren't your hotel. A taxi from the QUAD/Harrah's to the aiport was $15.00 without tip. The shuttle costs $7 per person, per way. Also our shuttle that was reserved for pick up back to the airport never showed up so we ended up taking a taxi and now I have to apply for a refund.
