Okay finding an inexpensive room and the strip is getting real tough but the Sahara which is across the street from the Circus Circus often has good rates on rooms. It is a pretty good sized resort but not as fancy as some of the others on the strip. A few years ago it was remodelled and it standing up fairly well. The Sahara is also the last stop on the monorail which also makes easy to get to some of the larger strip properties. Right now in June and July during the week they have rates as low as $43 which is a bargain nowadays for the strip.
