We are going to be driving though on a 12 day driving trip. Will be headed from Phoenix to Portland, OR. We plan to spend one night in Las Vegas on Tuesday, June 7th. Kids are 5 and 8 and have never been to Vegas before. We plan to walk a bit along the strip and look at the unusual hotels and probably have dinner. We will likely arrive around 4pm. Maybe swim a couple hours the next morning before hitting the road again.
Where would you recommend we stay? Budget is important. I was leaning toward Mandalay Bay for $99 per night, but they charge an extra $80 for the 2 kids which basically doubles the price. Any thoughts on somewhere sort of kid friendly in the $150 or less price range for a Tuesday in June?
