Finding your way around Las Vegas can be confusing at times. I have compiled a simple list that I hope you all enjoy using as a guide on your trip to Las Vegas with your friends and family. These means of transportation are all FREE! Las Vegas free transportation times may be different up til this point because of gas pricing. To find out quickly, walk by any employee or visit any Casino lobby employee and find out (should take 1-2 minutes).
1.) Barbary Coast, Gold Coast, Orleans shuttle
Shuttle bus runs every 20-25 minutes to each of the above mentioned casinos between 9:30a.m. and Midnight. Catch the Barbary shuttle at the side entrance on Flamingo Road. Use the Barbary Coast to the Gold Coast shuttle and you can walk to the Rio which is located beside the Gold Coast.

3.) Sam’s Town shuttle
Shuttles run from Sam’s Town on the Boulder Highway to several Las Vegas locations every 45 to 60 minutes between the hours of 8 a.m and 11:30 p.m. depending on which route you are using. Shuttle run from Sam’s Town to the following properties, Stardust, Fremont, California, Bourbon Street, San Remo and Harrah’s. Although the Sam’s Town web site says that a room key may be required we have never heard of anyone being asked to show a key.

Green Valley Ranch to the Las Vegas Strip The shuttle picks up and drops off guests at the Mandalay Bay Tour & Travel Lobby
All these shuttles are a free service, a tip of $1 per rider to the driver will be appreciated.
1. Tram that runs from Bellagio to the Monte Carlo hotel runs every 10 minutes 24 hours a day offers indoor boarding platforms.
2. Excalibur to Mandalay Bay tram operates 24 hours a day with non-stop service on the southbound trip. The same tram on the return (northbound) trip from Mandalay Bay to Excalibur provides a stop at the Luxor for those wishing to visit there.
There is a Starbucks conveniently located once you step foot out of the hotel room elevator on the second floor. It doesn’t get more convenient than that if your in need of some caffeine after a long night of gambling or partying.

Found in the insides of Harrahs Casino Las Vegas is nothing spectacular. The decor on the inside floor of the casino is totally Mardi gra style. Since there have been linked up with The Rio Hotel and Casino, but casino floors are flooded with a Mardi gra theme. Unimpressed with the decor in this hotel casino floor along with the room. Rooms have an aging like decor that makes younger people feel “blah” about it. (nothing a few drinks can’t fix)

Harrahs Pool Area
The pool area is very outdated and there is definitely nothing special about it. The metal hand rails to get into and out of the pool were very dangerous. They got extremely hot (desert sun heat) and it was nearly impossible to touch them when trying to get out.
This is a good, economical bet.
Filed under Harrahs
Harrahs Casinos is average. This Casino does not have the best looking rooms in Sin City. The rooms have always been were very clean. The view in this Casino wasn’t the best (average rooms not VIP rooms). This casino is large enough that you don’t have to spend to much time looking for a machine or table to play on.
What has the best part of staying at Harrah’s?
Harrah’s Casino has always seem to provide every guest equally with outstanding customer service. From the room cleaning staff to the casino floor, we were treated like the staff appreciated that we chose their hotel to stay in.
Harrah’s Casino is also located right smack in the middle of the Las Vegas strip. If you do not feel like eating any food inside of the Casino, right outside on the strip is a panda express, Mcdonalds, and a 24 hour Dennys. The 24 hour Dennys comes in handy dandy if your a night person.
If you’re not bothered about staying in a big name hotel, this hotel is in a really good location at the center of the Strip, at a good price.
