A Few Days in Las Vegas

I just got off of Expedia, where I booked a few nights in Las Vegas for the 13th through the 16th. This way, I'll have four days of poker (I play at the Excalibur. Look for me; I'll be the one with death in his eyes.) before I have to get back to California. Since I plan to lose and lose at the tables, I needed to book a room that was as inexpensive as possible, but not so inexpensive, that I got grossed out by the room. So...I found this great deal for the Sahara for $38 a night. It's right on the Strip, a five-minute drive fron the Excalibur, and Expedia gives this place three stars, which isn't too bad, but is the place really decent? I'm only using the room for sleeping 'cause I'm there to work on my game, so I'm trying not to be too picky, but I am a naturally picky/squeamish kind of guy (go ahead, ask around if you don't believe me), and I don't want to think of my room as a potential biohazard. Neither do I want to have to stare at, step around, or sleep on mystery stains.


I know what you're thinking: Why don't I stay at the Excalibur? Because I waited too long to book, and the rooms have gotten pretty expensive. That's what I get for being a procrastinator.
