Fremont Hotel & Casino
It's hard to miss the Fremont, which is saying something in a city like Las Vegas. The iconic Downtown hotel is easily recognizable by its facade of gleaming red lights, twinkling gold logo, and what it claims is the largest LED screen in the world, but it also sticks out from the throng of other Vegas resorts thanks to its easy airport access and lack of heavy Strip traffic. The ambience is definitely old school, but the rooms and service prove refined considering the price point. With a lively casino, regular calendar of events, an assortment of casual eateries (ranging from Tony Roma's to Dunkin Donuts, so you'll never be homesick), and one of the best seafood buffets in the city, it's a popular destination for travelers on a budget.
