Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

Bottom Line

Clean, comfortable, and just off the Strip -- but also just off the freeway on unattractive Industrial Road. But given the 322-room Hampton Inn's free shuttles to Mandalay Bay on the Strip (until 2 a.m.) and the airport (24 hours), free breakfast, and on-site pool and fitness center, it can be a good pick for the price.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Across the freeway from the southern side of the Strip, near New York, New York and Excalibur

While the immediate neighborhood amounts to gas stations, vacant lots, run-down budget motels, a variety of fast food chains, and strip malls -- you can only expect so much from a hotel located on South Industrial Road -- the Vegas frenzy is a quick hotel shuttle or car ride away.

Many visitors like to explore the hotels and attractions along the Strip, and once you're there, it's easy to find a taxi at virtually any time of day or night. A generally less expensive option for getting around the area is the Deuce, a double-decker bus that runs up and down the strip 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and costs $3. There's also a monorail system, which stops at MGM Grand, Bally's/Paris, Flamingo/Caesars Palace, Harrah's/Imperial Palace, the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Hilton, and the Sahara. Note, however, that the monorail stations are far from one another so it can be a long walk from the station to where you actually want to go. A single-ride ticket is $5; a one-day pass is $13. If you're traveling along the Strip with at least one other person, a cab is often the least expensive and most convenient option.

  • Free shuttle to Mandalay Bay (on the southern end of the Strip) at the top of the hour every hour between 5 a.m. and 2 a.m. (but no pickups, so plan on taking a $20 taxi back to the hotel)
  • 15-minute drive, $25 taxi, or free hotel shuttle to McCarran International Airport; shuttle runs every hour for 24-hours and picks up 30 minutes past each hour
  • 10-minute drive to the Las Vegas Outlet Mall
  • Free on-site parking
  • 15-minute drive to the Las Vegas Convention Center
