“Affordable long stay or group stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Just read some of the reviews of this complex, and felt that I had to offer my opinion.

We have stayed at the complex at least three times, always when we were in town for longer than two weeks. Last time was probably 5 years ago.

The price of the apartments is so low that they can halve the cost of staying in Vegas.

We have been there with various family / friends coming over and have had up to four apartments at the same time.

The apartments are clean and friendly and the grounds, swimming pools and hot tubs are great.

Yes you do have to supply towels, sheets etc but we found that we could nip to Wal-Mart and buy all these for a few dollars and just leave them when we left.

We have always found the office staff friendly and efficient and the grounds people especially keep the place beautifully, (when we were there last time they had turned off the fountains around the complex, because of the concerns for water conservation, rain falling on the wrong side of the Rockies apparently, but even so the grounds are really nice).

One of the reviewers said that they were afraid to go out the building, we never found that and walked when we could, its an easy 5 minutes walk to the Orleans, or Mc Mullins, and there is or was a really nice local bar really close called the Back street bar, (this was a gay bar but we as couples were welcomed and treated really well, the bar itself is beautiful, polished wood dance floor and a grand pool table).

The people who lived in the other apartments either lived there after first arriving to work in Vegas or were retried people especially the snow birds as they call them, mainly Canadians down to escape the winter cold up there.

We had absolutely no problems with any neighbour, no noise or rubbish problems. Everyone treated the place with respect.

There is a free bus that takes people into strip or even shopping if they want them too.

Is it basic yes but comfortable, and lots of local restaurants delivered to your door.

Tropicana west is a good road away from the strip you cross over I15, and you have a number of takeaway outlets and a gambling hall who’s name I forget but keep going past The Orleans, and you have restaurants, supermarkets etc and you can carry on out toward Red Rock Canyon.

All in all a great Vegas base for exploring.

Stayed at Budget Suite Tropicanna for about a month and I have to say, for what I paid it was value for money. I found the staff most helpful (Kelly and ? dang I knew I should of written this as soon as I left, I forgot her name, brunette - she was efficient and friendly).

I was asked what rooms were my preference, had none so I was directed to a third storey level - single room, sitting room with kitchen and attached restroom/bathroom. Place was neat, neutral coloured and had a flat screen tv (which you pay for - $2.00 a week? Can't remember specifics lol). Hiring a microwave is $5.00 a week, although I've heard you can buy one online for $20.00 or less.

As it's Vegas, yes the rooms smell like the smoker who lived there before you. I did try the frebreeze routine (non smoker here) for two days and followed up with a request for room change. Was explain all rooms are smoking rooms so they couldn't guarantee meadow fresh, but the first room they showed me had barely noticeable smokers smell so I moved. Their flexibility was appreciated as it looked quite busy. I also paid for wireless net access for a month ($20.00) and could hop on my laptop once I worked out what connection to hook up too.

Did not see any cockroaches or insects, all I saw was a well kept place.

Spa and pools were clean and kept an eye on, something I could vouch for as my friends kids who came to visit me got directed out of the spa as two of them were under the age of 18. Fair enough and the staff were polite. I did see their security march around a few times and the police/ fire engines did visit a couple of times during my stay but honestly... I didn't hear any trouble and I just felt safe. Single female traveller here :P

Everytime I left my room I seem to see someone doing maintanence or cleaning up, there's a real feeling of pride. Laundry room was easy to use, I got a card from the office and topped it up and it cost like $1.50 a wash, don't quote me on that. Although you have to make sure you clean out the lint thingee in the dryer and look inside, one or two have spinning things missing which can catch your clothes.

Location: I personally think one of the best things about this place is it's a very short walk from the strip. I use to walk up the road all the time.While I may have met the odd homeless looking figure on the corner of the road while I was waiting to cross, they were always polite or said nothing at all. As it's a busy road (Tropicanna) it never bothered me that someone might jump out and donk me, as it's not a secluded area. About a five to eight minute walk to the strip - Closest casino Exchaliber and New York, New york - however you spell it.

Buses run down tropicanna every 30 minutes or so, at least that's the impression I got ... but why bus? WALK, walk, WALK ...

Thank you budgets, as a foreigner in the USA, I found my time with you relaxed and enjoyable. Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: MUST DOS: First Friday once a month go to First Friday in the art district, enjoy the art, food and...

Stayes here for 6 weeks from 20th March 2011

Not sure why there are negative reveiws about this place, If people would do their own ground work they would know exactly what they are getting

You are renting an appartment, with kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and dining area
You will need (unless you pay extra) Bedding, Cutlery, Crockery, Kitchen utensils, Towels

This place is called BUDGET for a reason
If you want 'bells and whistles' go stay at the Bellagio

Anyway, onto my review.....

Excellent location, just a couple of bus stops to the strip. In the other direction, just a couple of stops to the Orleans

Appartment was clean
Bed was comfortable
Service was friendly
Front desk/office/internet space closed from Midnight to 06:30 - once you know this its not a problem
McDonalds, Subway, Wendys, mexican all within a few mins walk

I would recomend anyone staying in Vegas for longer than 2 weeks to consider the Budget Suites of America properties

Once you give them your credit card.....it's over! Very bad experience! Oh, and everything is an extra charge. Even towels, pillows, blankets, and even an extra key! Cleaning fee, internet fee, dishes fee, and leave your license to borrow an iron! You even have to sign forms for everything. Even to get a remote for the TV and have to take it back to them when you check out! (the buttons on the TV don't work so once again,, no choice! They also don't tell you that you have to give them a copy of your drivers license, plus your Social Security number. Once your standing at the desk to check in with your reservation and they demand this info or you can't stay, it's not fair. Your also past the cancelation policy time so you have no choice. The office is not even open 24 hours a day, so good luck if you need anything after hours. Do your self a favor and just STAY SOME WHERE ELSE!

When we reached budget suites of america, I was told my balance was 1,788, Over the phone reservations made by tomorrow I was told it was 1.688 and I paid 100.00 deposit everytime I called for confirmation i was told I didn,t need one, when I spoke to the manager at budget suites, she said Tomorrow made a mistake, also maid service was 60.00 a week, which consisted of puttin clean sheets on the bed after several phone calls to get this done. I went out and bought a broom, mop and glass cleaner and did my own cleaning. One sunday it was cleaned very good, I looked all over for the young man that cleaned it so I could give him a tip, and also there were no refunds or else I would have gone to another hotel. I was very dissappointed, I could have saved 60.00 a week which I oonly received service one time. It's too bad because it wasn't a bad apartment. By the way we stayed there from December 26th until January 25th> thank you for reading this. Respectfully Gloria Costello.We stayed at budget suites at 3655 west tropicana.Las vegas

My friend and I just got back from five days and four nights at the tropacana. We had a ball. The slots were loose help very friendly The entertainment was fantastic and everyone should go see the free air play that they perform six times a day. We received many comps and we had a problem with the hot water not turning off and called them at one in the morning and it was fixed within ten min. We will be going back there next year and staying at the tropacana.

We have stayed at this Budget Suites twice. And Would stay again if we got into Las Vegas a day ahead of our arrival date at another hotel. The price is right and check in is as early as you like. The rooms are clean but are inneed of a few renovations. We liked it because it has a kitchenett with stove and fridge. Pool was nice and they also have a coin laundry. Not a bad place to stay if you are driving to Las Vegas as it is off the strip, but it is next door to a 7-11 and a McDonalds so you can't go wrong. The staff make your stay very enjoyable.
