The title of my review was not my words - these were the words of the airport shuttle driver after he dropped off all the others on board at their respective hotels. He said clearly that you can spend plenty of money on The Strip, but the Desert Rose Resort is well situated, very clean, and highly affordable.
I was very impressed with the DRR, and would stay there again on future trips to Vegas. The rooms are more like apartments, and are very large, even having a lounge & kitchenette. The wi-fi reception is very steady, and the place in general is very relaxed. I didn't indulge in the poolside, but it looked great.
Best of all - you take the rear gate (your room pass opens it from the outside), and you are about 75yds from The Strip, and about 100yds from The Luxor. It is on a block that is shared by Hooters and the Tropicana casino, and MGM Grand, Excalibur, New York New York, are an easy five minute walk away. If you pay the daily amount of $7, the public bus will take you up & down The Strip until all hours of the night.
I would say that the only downside I found was that I felt the breakfast was rather dull. I am not big on buffets, and that's what you get, but hey - this is Vegas, so if you can't find a diner or something that makes a better breakfast, then you are not getting out like you should !
