Resort fees are a pain. These pesky fees can cost you hundreds of dollars over the course of your vacation. So, I did some serious research to find all the hotels in Las Vegas without resort fees.
These are some of my best picks of Las Vegas hotels that don’t charge resort fees. You can find a complete list of Las Vegas hotels without resort fees at the bottom of this page. I also added all of them to a map, so you can easily see where each hotel is located. Please note that hotels change their resort fee policies all the time, so I will keep this page up to date.
Vegas Properties Without a Hotel Resort Fee
Las Vegas Strip Hotels Without Resort Fees
There are currently only 3 Las Vegas hotels without resort fees located directly on the Strip. 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 Las Vegas Strip, especially since there is no resort fee to tack onto your bill.
Best Western Plus Casino Royale
Casino Royale is one of the few Vegas hotels without resort fees found directly on the Strip. Best Western isn’t the most luxurious hotel in Vegas, but it’s a solid option. The hotel is super clean and has amenities like free parking for guests, free WiFi, a swimming pool, a gym, a business center, and in-room refrigerators.
Best Western Plus Casino Royale is the only hotel on the Strip with 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. There are so many restaurants, attractions, and things to do in the area.
Travelodge Center Strip
The Travelodge Center Strip is another hotel on the Las Vegas 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, WiFi, an outdoor pool, a business center, and laundry facilities. However, the property was built without a fitness center. If you’re a guest that likes to workout, that can pose an issue.
Travelodge is located between the MGM Grand and Planet Hollywood, right across the street from the Aria. Some of the rooms have a balcony with great views, which is another perk of the site. Plenty of dining options, shows, and entertainment are available in this part of the city as well.
The Jockey Club is a condominium resort nestled between the Bellagio and the Cosmopolitan. You can rent out rooms just like a normal hotel. During your 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 internet, a gym (with sauna, hot tub, and pool), laundry facilities, and a kitchenette (with a refrigerator and microwave). This resort also has a great view of the Bellagio Fountains. Just be aware that you will be charged cleaning fees, which ranges from $20-$80 depending on how long you stay. Either way, this is easily one of the best values in Vegas. Plus, there are no resort fees.
Hotels Near the Strip With No Vegas Resort Fees
Any hotel that is located slightly off-Strip is usually much cheaper than the ones directly on Las Vegas Blvd. There are about 20 hotel options that are within a block or two of the Strip that don’t charge a resort fee.
I encourage you to go to the map at the bottom of this page and see which hotels are closest to the attractions you want to experience. You may find a property that better suits your needs. Here are some cainos near the Strip that don’t require you pay a commission on resort fees. There are many properties around the Strip that will waive your resort fee.
Marriott Grand Chateau
The Marriott Grand Chateau is the closest hotel to the Strip that you can book, without actually being on it. This 3-star hotel is about a half-block (1-minute walk) to the Las Vegas Strip. Resort fees are non-existent on this property.
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, a rooftop pool, fitness center, laundry facilities, and a full kitchen.
Candlewood Suites Las Vegas
The Candlewood Suites are an affordable Las Vegas hotel. The rooms at this resort 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, a full kitchen, gym, and pool.
The Candlewood Suites have two locations, one on E Tropicana and one on Paradise Rd. Both hotel locations are great, but the one on Tropicana is much closer to the Strip. Resort fees are not charged.
Wyndham Grand Desert
Wyndham Grand Desert Resort 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. Access to amenities like free parking for guests, free Wi-Fi, a full kitchen, laundry facilities, a business center, gym, and outside pool (and hot tub) are included at Grand Desert.
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 a room rate as low as $104. Resort fees are not applied on this Vegas property. If you opt for a stay at the Wyndham, it’s an excellent accommodation for families.
Desert Rose Resort
Another resort just a half block off the Las Vegas 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 on the south end of the Strip, within a 5-minute walk of the MGM Grand and Excalibur. Guests at this resort get access to amenties like free parking for guests, free Wi-Fi, gym, business center, kitchenette, laundry facilities pool, and hot tub. Guests can stay here without worrying about resort fees.
Residence Inn by Marriott 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 to stay at. 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 at this hotel include free Wi-Fi, kitchens, laundry facilities, and a pool. You have to pay a fee for parking, but they make up for it with a complimentary breakfast buffet.
Hotels off of the Las Vegas Strip Without Resort Fees
There are plenty of hotels without resort fees in Las Vegas found off of the Strip. However, 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.
There are some advantages to staying off the Strip. For example, a hotel off the Strip is more likely to offer complimentary breakfast. I’ll mention a couple of my favorite recommendations off the Strip down below. For a full list of Vegas properties that don’t have a hotel resort fee, scroll down to the map at the bottom of this page.
Hyatt Place Las Vegas at Silverton Village
Hyatt Place at Silverton Village is a Las Vegas resort located, 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 gives guests access to amenities like free parking for guests, free Wi-Fi, a 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. Resort fees are not charged to guests on this property.
Residence Inn by Marriott Las Vegas South
I listed the Residence Inn by Marriott South, but this really applies to all Residence Inns in Las Vegas. There 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 slightly better reviews than the ones near the Strip.
All of them have the following amenities: free Wi-Fi, a kitchenette, laundry facilities, complimentary breakfast, and a pool. The only thing that these resorts do not have is free parking. Parking is only about 10 bucks. It’s hard to go wrong with Marriott, especially without the resort fees.
La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham Las Vegas Red Rock
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. These suites are all solid options that offer great rates. A room here rarely goes above $150 a night and usually hovers around $100.
Amenities at La Quinta include free parking for guests, free Wi-Fi, gym, business center, laundry facilities, complimentary breakfast, and an outdoor pool. If you want to stay closer to the Las Vegas 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. These hotel options 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
The Four Queens Resort & Casino is in downtown Las Vegas is within walking distance of the Fremont Street Experience. The location is perfect if you want to explore the area on foot. This is also one of the few hotels that have 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). The Four Queens Hotel also charges for parking (about $3). Food is never an issue on Fremont Street, there are many great restaurants in the area.
Apache Hotel at Binion’s
The Apache Hotel is one of the oldest and most historic Vegas hotels. 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 Four Queens, so the location is great. Amenities at this resort include free Wi-Fi, a gym, 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 in Las Vegas, Nevada 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 after you check-in. These charges quickly add up.
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.
Do Hotels in Las Vegas ever have Resort Fees Waived?
Simply asking for a hotel to waive your resort fee isn’t likely to work. However, if you’re part of a loyalty program, you can get your hotel resort fees waived on any stay. Anyone that has Gold status with MGM or Diamond status with Caesars, can have their resort fee waived automatically as part of their rewards program. It’s a great deal that doesn’t require that you accumulate points. You’ll get credit for simply being a member.
Is it Worth Staying at a Las Vegas Hotel with No Resort Fee?
Las Vegas is a city that spares no expense. Any traveler that wants to stay at one of the major casinos on the Strip is going to have to live with Vegas resort fees. 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 places. A fee isn’t going to be a big deal.
But if you’re a Vegas veteran who does want to spend a lot of 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.
