* I have NOT stayed at any of these Las Vegas Strip Hotels, but I have lived here long enough to know which Las Vegas Hotels consistently have the lowest ratings.

Sometimes its as important knowing where not to stay as it is where to stay. Sadly Vegas sites are all about the PROMOTION of properties and you have to dig a bit to find the downside. Now just because a Hotel gets a few dozen or a few hundred bad reviews doesn’t mean it is not a good “value” depending on the needs and budget of a family.

But in order to avoid disappointment (Every Hotel has a wonderful website extolling the virtues of their properties) you’ll have to do a bit of review investigating. And these Hotel manage to stay in business year after year . The point of this list is to SET YOUR EXPECTATIONS. So before booking at these properties make sure you check them thoroughly and READ THE Reviews on Google, Yelp, and TripAdvisor. The glass really is half empty sometimes.

These are the 5 hotels on the Las Vegas Strip with the worst reputations:

  1. Stratosphere Hotel, Casino & Tower: The Stratosphere is one of the oldest hotels on the Strip, and it shows. The rooms are dated and in need of renovation, and the casino is small and smoky. The hotel is also located at the northern end of the Strip, which is far from most of the action. In all fairness (The Stratosphere is now named the “Stat” and they have dumped millions into renovations. So it’s better than it was It’s major problem is it is so far North that you have to do a lot of walking or driving to get to other Hotels.
  2. Circus Circus Hotel & Casino: Circus Circus is a family-friendly hotel, but it’s also known for its rundown condition and its large number of budget-minded guests. The rooms are small and basic, and the casino is crowded and noisy. The hotel is also located at the northern end of the Strip, which is far from most of the action.
  3. Excalibur Hotel & Casino: Excalibur is another family-friendly hotel on the Strip, but it’s also known for its dated décor and its large number of budget-minded guests. The rooms are small and basic, and the casino is crowded and noisy. The hotel is also located at the southern end of the Strip, which is far from most of the action.
  4. Tropicana Las Vegas: Tropicana is a mid-range hotel on the Strip that has been in decline in recent years. The rooms are in need of renovation, and the casino is small and dated. The hotel is also located at the southern end of the Strip, which is far from most of the action.
  5. Flamingo Las Vegas: Flamingo is a mid-range hotel on the Strip that is known for its large pool and its iconic wildlife habitat. However, the rooms are in need of renovation, and the casino is crowded and noisy. The hotel is also located at the center of the Strip, which can be overwhelming for some guests.
