Hotels change their resort fee policies all the time, so I will keep this page up to date. Please note that not all of these hotels have the same amenities as the casinos on the strip. In fact, most of them don’t even have casinos. In the next section, I provide more information about some of the more popular hotels on this list, and give my recommendations on which hotels are best.

Las Vegas Hotels Without Resort Fees ON THE STRIP

There are currently only 3 hotels directly on the Las Vegas strip that don’t charge resort fees. All of them offer a great value for the price (I rated them between $ – $$$).

You won’t be paying more than $150 a night (usually less) for any of these hotels during the week. And weekend rates rarely go above $200. These rates are extremely competitive for a hotel on the strip, especially since there is no resort fee to tack onto your bill.

Best Western Plus Casino Royale

  • Location: Center Strip
  • Price: $$
  • Rating: 4/5 Stars

Casino Royale isn’t the most luxurious hotel on the strip, but it’s a solid option. The hotel is super clean, and has amenities like: free parking for guests, free Wi-Fi, outdoor pool, fitness center, business center and in-room refrigerators.

The Best Western Plus Casino Royale is the only hotel on the strip that has a casino, and doesn’t charge resort fees. It has an unbeatable location right next to the Venetian, and across the street from the Mirage.

Travelodge Center Strip

  • Location: Southern Strip
  • Price: $$
  • Rating: 3.5/5 Stars

The Travelodge Center Strip is another hotel on the strip that doesn’t charge resort fees. The hotel isn’t going to blow you away, but it’s a solid option with good amenities. Some of those amenities include: free parking for guests, free Wi-Fi, outdoor pool, business center and laundry facilities. There is no fitness center.

It’s located between the MGM Grand and Planet Hollywood, right across the street from the Aria. Some of the rooms have balconies, which allow you to take full advantage of this great location.

Jockey Club

  • Location: Center Strip
  • Price: $ – $$
  • Rating: 4.1/5 Stars

The Jockey Club is a condominium resort nestled between the Bellagio and the Cosmopolitan. You can rent out rooms just like a normal hotel. If you stay at the Jockey Club you are able to share some of the amenities offered at the Cosmopolitan including free parking and access to pools.

Other amenities include: free Wi-Fi, fitness center (with sauna, hot tub and pool), laundry facilities and kitchenette (with a refrigerator). This resort also has a great view of the Bellagio Fountains. Just be aware that you will be charged a cleaning fee, which ranges from $20-$80 depending on how long you stay. Either way, this is easily one of the best values on the strip.

Las Vegas Hotels Without Resort Fees NEAR THE STRIP

The hotels that are slightly off the strip are usually much cheaper than the ones directly on Las Vegas Blvd. There are about 20 hotels that are within a block or two of the strip that don’t charge resort fees. I understand that you probably don’t want to read through 20 different reviews, so I picked the top 5 hotels.

Just because I don’t write a review below doesn’t mean I don’t recommend the hotel. I encourage you to go the map at the top of this page and see which hotels are closest to the attractions you want to visit. You may find something that better suits you needs.

Marriott Grand Chateau

  • Location: Half a block Off-Strip
  • Price: $$
  • Rating: 4.6/5 Stars

The Marriott Grand Chateau is the closest hotel to the strip that you can book, without actually being on it. It’s about a half block (1 minute walk) to the strip.

This is a high quality resort, but still moderately priced. It’s right next to the Travelodge Center Strip that I mentioned earlier, but slightly cheaper. It also has a higher rating, deserving so. Amenities here include: free parking for guests, free Wi-Fi, rooftop pool, fitness center, laundry facilities and full kitchen.

Candlewood Suites Las Vegas

  • Location: One Block Off-Strip
  • Price: $
  • Rating: 4.3/5 Stars

The Candlewood Suites are one of the best affordable resorts in Las Vegas. The rooms are super cheap (usually under $130 a night) but don’t sacrifice quality. Amenities here include: free parking for guests, free Wi-Fi, laundry facilities, full kitchen, fitness center and pool.

The Candlewood Suites have two locations, one on E Tropicana and one on Paradise Rd. Both hotels are great, but the one on Tropicana is much closer to the strip.

Wyndham Grand Desert

  • Location: One Block Off-Strip
  • Price: $ – $$$
  • Rating: 4.4/5 Stars

Wyndham Grand Desert is a gorgeous resort located about a block away from the strip, right behind the MGM. It’s within walking distance of Topgolf and Wet Republic pool party. Amenities at Grand Desert include: free parking for guests, free Wi-Fi, full kitchen, laundry facilities, business center, fitness center and outside pool (and hot tub).

The Wyndham Blue Desert is located on the opposite side of the strip (behind the Mirage) and it’s equally as luxurious. Rates often creep into the $200+ range on the weekend, and hover around $150 during the week. However, if you book at the right time you can find prices as low as $104 a night.

Desert Rose Resort

  • Location: Half Block Off-Strip
  • Price: $ – $$
  • Rating: 4.4/5 Stars

Another resort just a half block off the strip that offers fantastic value is the Desert Rose Resort. As far as looks go, it’s highly comparable to the Wyndham Grand Desert, but it’s cheaper and closer to the strip.

Desert Rose is located on the south end of the strip, right behind Tropicana. That puts it within a 5 minute walk of the MGM Grand and Excalibur. Amenities at this resort include: free parking for guests, free Wi-Fi, fitness center, business center, kitchenette, laundry facilities pool and hot tub.

Residence Inn by Marriott Las Vegas Convention Center

  • Location: One Block Off-Strip
  • Price: $$
  • Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

I wanted to include the Residence Inn by Marriott on this list because it’s right across the street from the Las Vegas Convention Center. There are actually 3 excellent Marriott properties right in the same area, so you have your choice of any one of them.

All of the Marriotts close to the convention center actually tend to have better rates on the weekend. The hotel is much busier during the week when business conferences are being held, thus creating an opportunity to lock in some great rates. Amenities here include: free Wi-Fi, kitchenette, laundry facilities, and pool. You have to pay for parking, but they make up for it with a complimentary breakfast buffet.

Las Vegas Hotels Without Resort Fees OFF THE STRIP

Unless you’re visiting family or in town for business, there really isn’t any reason to stay far off the strip. The rates are pretty much the same as what you’ll find 1 or 2 blocks away from the strip. Sometimes you can find better deals, but it isn’t anything life changing.

Although, there are still some advantages to staying off the strip. For example, more of the hotels offer complimentary breakfast. I’ll mention a couple of my favorite off-strip hotels down below. Again this isn’t a full list, just a few of my recommendations. For a full list of off-strip hotels without resort fees, scroll up to the map at the top of this page.

Hyatt Place Las Vegas at Silverton Village

  • Location: Off-Strip
  • Price: $ – $$
  • Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

Hyatt Place at Silverton Village is located south of the strip, a few miles from McCarran International Airport. If you feel the sudden urge to gamble you don’t have to go all the way to the strip. The hotel is less than a 5 minute walk away from the Silverton Casino Hotel.

The resort itself is really nice and includes amenities like: free parking for guests, free Wi-Fi, business center, fitness center, outdoor pool, in-room refrigerator, complimentary breakfast and free shuttle service to and from the airport. The rooms are typically very affordable, and are often less expensive on the weekend.

Residence Inn by Marriott Las Vegas South

  • Location: Off-Strip
  • Price: $$
  • Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

I listed the Residence Inn by Marriott South, but this really applies to all Residence Inns in Las Vegas. The are a couple of them located throughout the city, all of superb quality. It is worth noting that the Marriotts off the strip actually get a slightly better reviews than the ones near the strip.

All of them have the following amenities: free Wi-Fi, kitchenette, laundry facilities, complimentary breakfast and pool. The only thing that these resorts do not have is free parking. Parking is only about $10. It’s hard to go wrong with Marriott.

La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham Las Vegas Red Rock

  • Location: Off-Strip
  • Price: $
  • Rating: 4.1/5 Stars

I specifically mention the La Quinta Red Rocks location because it’s near the Red Rock Casino, but this applies to all other Las Quinta Resorts in Las Vegas. They are all solid hotels that offer great rates. Prices rarely go above $150 a night, and usually hover around $100.

Amenities at La Quinta include: free parking for guests, free Wi-Fi, fitness center, business center, laundry facilities, complimentary breakfast and outdoor pool. If you want to stay closer to the strip the Tropicana and Airport North locations are within 2 blocks of Las Vegas Blvd and offer the same low prices.

Hotels Without Resort Fees in Downtown Las Vegas

Downtown Las Vegas is a popular destination for anyone looking to get away from the glitz and glamour of the strip. The hotels are much cheaper downtown, but many of them still have resort fees. There are only two hotels in Downtown Las Vegas that don’t charge a resort fee.

Four Queens Resort & Casino

  • Location: Downtown Las Vegas
  • Price: $$
  • Rating: 4.2/5 Stars

The Four Queens Resort & Casino is located directly on Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas. The location is perfect if you want to explore the area on foot. This is also one of the few hotels that has an in-house casino and doesn’t charge a resort fee.

Amenities at the Four Queens include an in-room refrigerator and laundry facilities. Wi-Fi is free in public areas, but you have to pay for it in your room (about $5). They also charge for parking (about $3).

Apache Hotel at Binion’s

  • Location: Downtown Las Vegas
  • Price: $
  • Rating: 3.8/5 Stars

The Apache Hotel is one of the oldest and most historic hotels in Las Vegas. The rooms are smaller than what you see at other hotels in the area, but with rates as low as $35 a night during the week, you really can’t complain. Even on the weekend prices hover around $100.

Apache is right across the street from the Four Queens, so the location is great. Amenities at this resort include free Wi-Fi, fitness center and a pool. Some of the premium rooms also have a refrigerator.

Resort Fee Prices At Other Las Vegas Hotels

If you stay at a hotel that charges resort fees, you’ll have to pay them every night you stay at the hotel. The fees are mandatory even if you don’t use the amenities they cover. Whether you book your room with the hotel directly, or through a travel website, there is no way to avoid them.

Most hotels charge between $20-$40 a night in resort fees. Although some hotels charge as low as $8 or as much as $45. This is of course before you add on the resort fee tax, which is about 13%. So in total, you can pay as much as $52 in resort fees per night at some of the most expensive hotels.

If you want to learn more about why Las Vegas hotels charge resort fees, I wrote another article here. But if you’re just fed up and want to avoid resort fees altogether, I recommend staying at one of the hotels listed above.

Is It Worth Staying At A Hotel That Charges Resort Fees?

Anyone who wants to stay at a one of the major casinos on the Las Vegas strip is going to have to live with resort fees. The Best Western Plus Casino Royale is the only hotel located directly on the strip that has a casino and doesn’t charge a resort fee.

If the experience of staying at a marquee property is what you’re after, then I would argue that booking a hotel with a resort fee is worth it. In fact, if it’s your first Vegas trip I recommend staying at one of these hotels. But if you’re a Vegas veteran who wants to save money, you can get the same experience by booking a hotel without resort fees and traveling (either on foot or by car) to the big casinos.
