Bill's or mgm

Looks like I will be taking trip #3 to LV in March as my husband will be bowling in the national tournament. The last 2 (only 2) times I have stayed we were at the MGM. I loved it the first time, the second time we were stuck in a West Wing room that I didn't like. We can get a pretty good deal to stay at MGM - but Bill's looks pretty good and would be a little less expensive, plus it's someplace different. Wondering what people that have stayed at Bill's thought. Thanks!

I haven't actually stayed at Bill's but my friend did the last time we were in Vegas. The room was ok, clean with a comfy bed. The hotel is small with easy access to Strip. I would stay at Bill's with no hesitation.

MGM is by far the better resort with all the amenities including pool, restaurants, shows, etc. Bills is definitely 'different' and it's location is great. IMO, I would pick Bills if the price was significantly lower and you're just looking for a place to crash at night. But, if you also want to be mid-strip, Bill's is the way to go. I find staying at different locations along the strip gives the trips a different feel as you experience and explore new things. For that reason alone, I would pick Bills in your case (just to get the new experience)...but have you also priced out Harrahs, Ballys and Flamingo? Those should be along similar lines as MGM.

What are you thinking? Bill's is a nice little dump but it's not a real Vegas resort. Stay at MGM.

Good luck to your husband. Bowl well.

Bills is a good value. Just booked our third trip there in as many years.

Clean rooms, friendly staff and low limits in the casino. Unless you're looking for a resort you'll be pleased with Bills.

You obviously know what you are getting into at MGM. The third largest Hotel in the World, with everything you need within a reasonable walk.

Bills is much different than that. A small quaint little joint that smells like cigarettes and has sweet drink specials, and is right in the middle of the middle of the strip. Plus it outranks MGM on this site as far as top places to stay.

I would stay at Bill's save the money for other things. Bill's is smaller so it easier to get to the strip, you near all the places with great eats, it's center of the strip so it makes it easy to get around in either direction. Bill's rooms are very nice, clean & comfy bed plus you can get a view with the Bellagio fountains.

Bills is cheap its in a fantastic position on the strip. I stayed there in November 08 they were busy so they upgraded me, I got this massive suite it was like something out of a porn set. I bet it had seen some action lol. It was over the bit where the cabs pull in and all I could hear alnight was cabs using there horns and shouting at each other where they have to cut accros the road to get in by the reception. I was only there for one night with 2 mates and they got room upgrades and loved it they where on the other side which was quiet, I made a point of looking at one of the rooms on the way out and they looked fine. I paid i think about $40 something dollars it was a saturday night and would definatly stay there again if i was going away with the boys i have stayed at the MGM in 1999 but there seems to be more action where bills is located ///Pat

Location Location!!! I love Bill's just for that reason plus it's a small Hotel that is easy to get in & out of. The MGM is so big & you have to walk a mile just to get anywhere. Plus Bills has great gambling!!
