  • - [Announcer] Yellow Productions presents:
  • - The Top Five Worst Hotels on The Las Vegas Strip.
  • I'm Chris, this is Yellow Productions.
  • I do travel guides that are fun,
  • informative, and entertaining.
  • And in this video, I'm gonna be tellin' you
  • some of the worst places to stay on this road,
  • the Las Vegas Strip.
  • Las Vegas is a very interesting place because
  • there's some really great hotels,
  • but there's also some really awful hotels.
  • And those are the ones I'll be showing you here.
  • This is part of my series on Las Vegas.
  • I've got a whole bunch of other videos on Las Vegas,
  • including, where you can go to see
  • the best free shows in Vegas.
  • I've also got videos on what hotels
  • are actually good to stay at,
  • so you can check those out in the description below.
  • And we're gonna begin with the fifth worst hotel
  • on the Las Vegas Strip.
  • This prestigious location goes to the Excalibur Hotel.
  • The Excalibur Hotel can be found for
  • $27 a night on November 27th.
  • I used the same date for all of these hotels.
  • On Trip Advisor the Excalibur gets 3.5 stars,
  • with 3,588 reviews.
  • And the biggest problem with the Excalibur Hotel,
  • it's big, solace, and it's dated.
  • It has over 4,500 rooms.
  • The hotel was built a long time ago.
  • Really doesn't look like it's been remodeled in a long time.
  • Many reviewers on Trip Advisor cited long lines to check in.
  • 45, 50 minute waits seem to be pretty typical
  • for people checking into the Excalibur.
  • Looking at the check in area in the lobby here,
  • you can see the line,
  • not too short right now and they've got some rope set up.
  • It can get very much longer.
  • The common areas of the hotel, they're dark,
  • they're musty, they smell of smoke.
  • One reviewer on Trip Advisor said that "Oh my gosh,
  • "our entire floor smelled of mariajuana every time
  • "we came back and left our room".
  • Taking a walk down the guest room floor hallways.
  • When I did it there was a couple big bags
  • of trash that just appeared to be left there,
  • pretty picturesque, and these hallways are not
  • all that refreshing either.
  • Also, some of these rooms can have pretty bad views.
  • If you've got like a third floor room,
  • and you look to the inside,
  • this is probably not what you expect
  • when you get a room on the Las Vegas Strip.
  • Another reviewer on Trip Advisor says "If the management
  • "has half a brain they will tear this place down
  • "and build another hotel and casino they could be proud of.
  • "But this ain't it".
  • The fourth worst cheap hotel on the Las Vegas Strip,
  • is the Hooters Hotel.
  • This hotel can be found for $28 a night.
  • Three stars.
  • 3,646 reviews on Trip Advisor.
  • A reviewer on Trip Advisor said "The starting advertised
  • "room price of $36 became almost $60 at checkout
  • "because they asked to pay an additional $27
  • "per night as a resort fee".
  • That's something to keep in mind for a lot of these
  • cheap hotels, the Excalibur included.
  • They'll often charge resort fees that make that
  • cheap room rate actually double.
  • Another reviewer said "The pictures online looked way better
  • "than the room actually looks,
  • "I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.
  • "The only good thing about this place was
  • "the access to The Strip is one block off
  • and the ease of getting a taxi."
  • They also said "And oh, by the way, the whole place
  • "smelled like sewage".
  • Another reviewer on Trip Advisor says "The whole hotel
  • "is in desperate need of renovation.
  • "The bathtub was disgusting, there was dust everywhere,
  • the caulking had mold around it.
  • "Once I complained about the smell in the room
  • "a staff person came and sprayed this awful spray
  • "that made the room smell even worse.
  • "The bed was the worst, and it had a sink in the bed
  • "as if the bed frame was broken on one side."
  • Another reviewer says "The only glimmer of hope
  • "for this hotel was the food and the hospitality staff
  • "inside of the actual restaurant.
  • "The service inside the Hooters restaurant was great
  • "and very fast, so only visit the Hooter Hotel if
  • "what you want to do is eat in the restaurant.
  • "Skip the actual hotel rooms."
  • The third worst cheap hotel on the Las Vegas Strip
  • is the Travel Lodge Center Strip.
  • The Travel Lodge Center Strip, and the next
  • two hotels in this video, they are really bad.
  • This hotel, not quite as cheap as the previous two,
  • for November 27th it's $67 a night.
  • Travel Lodge Center Strip on Trip Advisor has
  • three stars with 1,079 reviews.
  • One reviewer on Trip Advisor says "If you're interested
  • "in location in the heart of Las Vegas,
  • "this is perfect.
  • "If you care about feeling safe, a clean room,
  • "and nice surroundings, get outta here.
  • "This isn't it."
  • The next reviewer said "Our room was old,
  • "and the windows looked like someone had
  • "to pry them open in the past.
  • "I did not feel safe in this hotel.
  • "The room had a musty smell to it.
  • "Think poo, plus detergent, mixed together.
  • "The bathroom was dirty.
  • "Overall, this was the worst hotel I've ever stayed in.
  • "I much rather pay extra to stay somewhere else.
  • "Definitely my first and last visit."
  • Another reviewer said "reaching my room door,
  • "the door was hard to open and it had clearly
  • "been forced open previously.
  • "The security latch on the door was snapped in half
  • "and had to be replaced.
  • "There was damage to the wall where the door handle
  • "had impacted it, even though a strike plate
  • "had been put in place."
  • Another reviewer on Trip Advisor says "This place
  • "is a total dump.
  • "The room was musty and moldy, you could see outside
  • "from around the air conditioning.
  • "The air conditioning sounded like a jet plane taking off.
  • "And this place with all of it's flaws it's not cheap."
  • And also they talked about the door and said
  • "You had to slam the front door to lock it."
  • Another reviewer agreed the air conditioning was
  • extremely loud and they also comment and said
  • "The corners of the hotels inner courtyard were used as
  • "urinals by pedestrians of The Strip
  • "crossing the hotel entrance."
  • The second worst cheap hotel on the Las Vegas Strip,
  • it's another Travel Lodge.
  • This is the Travel Lodge Las Vegas.
  • It's located right next to the Circus Circus hotel.
  • You can get the Travel Lodge Las Vegas for $37 a night.
  • On Trip Advisor the Travel Lodge Las Vegas
  • has 3 stars with 537 reviews.
  • The first reviewer where I'm gonna pick from
  • sums it all up, and they say "I chose this hotel
  • "because of the location, it did have that.
  • "It had nothing else."
  • Another reviewer on Trip Advisor says "The room was
  • "an extremely poor pair and smelled like
  • "some type of overwhelming floral scented carpet deodorizer,
  • "like you use to cover up pet urine or smoke.
  • "It was bad.
  • "It burned my nose, it was so strong.
  • "And on the last morning, I woke up with bites,
  • "and there were bugs walking around.
  • "This was literally the worst hotel I have ever stayed in."
  • Another reviewer says "Our stay at this place was terrible
  • "The furniture was broken, the mattresses were so hard
  • "I couldn't sleep, the bathroom was hot, it was very small."
  • Another reviewer on Trip Advisor says "You get what
  • "you pay for, so don't be expecting much.
  • "There was a pair of fake eyelashes stuck
  • "on the wall in the bathroom, from someone before us.
  • "The beds were cheap and awful.
  • "The shower took forever to drain; therefore,
  • making you stand in inches of water while trying to shower.
  • "The outside stairs coming from downstairs to
  • "the second floor smelled like human urine."
  • Some reviews said this hotel has nothing.
  • But one thing it did have, a free laundromat in the lobby
  • from 8 a.m to 8 p.m.
  • And boy, what a depressing lobby it is.
  • And now ladies and gentlemen,
  • the time you've all been waiting for,
  • the worst cheap hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.
  • It's part of the Circus Circus,
  • but in particular, it's the Cirus Circus Manor Motor Lodge.
  • The Cirus Circus Manor Motor Lodge rooms can be had
  • for $19.80 a night.
  • On Trip Advisor this portion of the Circus Circus gets
  • two and a half stars with 291 reviews.
  • The only one of these hotels on the strip that
  • gets less than three stars.
  • The Manor Motor Lodge are these three story buildings
  • behind the main buildings of the Circus Circus hotel.
  • These buildings are awful.
  • To check in for them, you have to check in
  • at the main Circus Circus check in,
  • in the main building.
  • And then, you follow these signs that say
  • "Manor rooms this way."
  • You cross this really long bridge.
  • I feel like it takes about 10 minutes to walk from
  • the check in area over to these Manor rooms.
  • You'll know you're there because it gets
  • really really depressing.
  • Here I'm pointing at that bridge I just walked across.
  • The big pink thing is the Adventure Dome,
  • and I'm standing on the third floor
  • of one of the Manor rooms.
  • So, let's go ahead and walk on in.
  • The first thing I noticed when I opened this door
  • was an amazing smell of smoke and must.
  • And the whole hotel, really just has a wet smell to it.
  • And I think I found the source of that wet smell.
  • It appears the ice machine had sprung a big leak,
  • and the entire ground floor by the ice machines
  • and the vending machines was wet.
  • They don't seem to take out the trash in this building.
  • There are big piles of trash everywhere.
  • They push the bed linens around in these big
  • orange carts that look more suitable to hold
  • trash than clean bed linens.
  • And then on the wall, there's these wires sticking out.
  • There was clearly something here electronic,
  • they just removed, pulled it out, and it's okay,
  • just leave it like that.
  • What's the big deal?
  • You're only paying $19 a night.
  • A reviewer on Trip Advisor said "This is the worst
  • "hotel I've stayed in.
  • "The room stinks like smoke,
  • "the whole building is old and run down.
  • "I had to go buy some disinfectant wipes
  • "just to use the toilet."
  • Another reviewer said "We had stayed here years ago,
  • "and figured it would be a nice stop for the night.
  • "We were wrong.
  • "The place is filthy, the carpet is disgusting,
  • "the windows, the doors, are dirty filthy.
  • "I hated to have to touch the door."
  • And another reviewer said "Thin walls, bugs,
  • "far away from The Strip and it's
  • just a step above a homeless shelter."
  • Thanks for watching!
  • You might also enjoy watching one of these videos,
  • over here, or over here.
  • This one, some things in Las Vegas
  • from my Las Vegas series.
  • Free shows you might wanna watch.

The top 5 worst cheap hotels on the Las Vegas Strip. Thinking of booking a cheap hotel in Las Vegas? You might want to reconsider if it's one of these hotels! Las Vegas has some amazing luxury hotels, and then it is also some really really awful hotels. Based on tripadvisor rankings, I walk through the five worst cheap hotels on the strip.

5. Excalibur Hotel:
3.5 Stars with 3,588 Reviews

The Excalibur is big and soulless. The problems are with the size of the hotel, its a giant over 4500 rooms, many rooms have awful views in to the depressing courtyard. Long check-in lines… often waits of 45 minutes The whole hotel has a musty/smoky smell, that you don't get in other Las Vegas Strip hotels.

4. Hooters Hotel
3 Stars with 3,646 Reviews

The Hooters hotel is very dated. Looks like it hasn't been kept up since it was built. They could at least do better with cleaning with a facility this run down. It was slightly better than a Motel 6. Starting Advertised room price of $36 become almost $60 at booking checkout the to additional $27 per night as resort fee. This hotel is in desperate need of renovation. The only glimmer of hope was the food and the hospitality staff inside of the Hooters restaurant.

3. Travel Lodge Center Strip
$67 / night
3 stars with 1,079 Reviews

If you're interested in a location in the heart of Las Vegas: this is perfect. If you care about feeling safe, clean room and nice surroundings: the don't stay at the Travel Lodge Las Vegas Center Strip. The windows looked like someone had try to pry them open in the past. I did not feel safe in this hotel. The corners of the hotel inner courtyard were used as urinals by pedestrians of the strip crossing the hotel entrance.

2. Travel Lodge Las Vegas
$37 / night
3 Stars with 537 Reviews

The Travel Lodge Las Vegas hotel has a good location right next to the Circus Circus hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. However, it has nothing else. You get what you pay for so don't be expecting much. The outside stairs coming from downstairs to the second floor smelled like human urine.

1. Circus Circus Manor Motor Lodge
$19.80 / night
2.5 Stars with 295 Reviews

Located in the back of the Circus Circus hotel, the Circus Circus manor rooms are extremely old and run down. The place is filthy , the carpet is disgusting . The windows on the doors are dirty filthy. The wallpaper in the halls is peeling off and looks nasty. A step above a homeless shelter. Entire hotel has a wet smell to it.
