Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino is a great place to stay if you’re looking for something affordable and Just Off-Strip. There are a lot of great restaurants on-site, as well as live entertainment. The SuperBook is world-famous and definitely worth a visit. However, the location isn’t the best if you’re looking to be in the heart of the action.

For an off-strip, budget-friendly option, we recommend checking out the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. Guests can pay super affordable rates for good quality amenities, entertainment, and attractions that can only be found at the Westgate.

Westgate Las Vegas Hotel Rooms & Suites

The Strip is not far from the Westgate Las Vegas – you can access Circus CircusResorts World, and many more resorts and casinos very easily from Westgate! You can catch the Las Vegas Monorail at the Westgate Station which is right out front of the hotel property. Location-wise, Westgate is an excellent choice; but keep reading to learn more about the dining experiences and opportunities to experience unique shows and amenities! 

There are a few room types to choose from when staying at the Westgate Las Vegas. Most rooms are 400 square feet and feature standard amenities that you’d expect to find at any hotel – a mini-fridge, in-room safe, hairdryer, air conditioning, and heating, and more; however, premium and luxe rooms do have a few more comforts above the signature room. 

The suite and villa options are where things get interesting. Vegas View suites feature 600 square feet of space to entertain and relax, with amenities like upgraded TVs, multiple bathrooms, plush bedding, and more. The Lanai Suites are situated right next to the pool so you have easy access to the water and poolside amenities. Studio Suites are perfect for a vacation or business trip, featuring more separated special design for a separation of work and play. The villas and family suites are great for families, obviously; they feature way more space, jetted tubs, walk-in showers and closets, and more.  

Westgate Resort Las Vegas Pools & Spa

The pool deck at the Watergate Las Vegas is newly renovated and ready for your stay full of rest, relaxation, and fun in the sun! Reserve a poolside daybed or cabana in advance of your stay and enjoy a comfortable experience by the water. The pool deck also features a 15-seat hot tub, so there is plenty of room to relax and let the jets take you away to your own pocket of paradise. Watergate’s pool is an all-ages experience, just make sure you pack your towels and sunscreen!

Feeling rundown or just need a break from the excitement of Las Vegas? Head to the hotel’s Serenity Spa for customized treatments and a day for soothing your mind and body. The spa offers seasonal treatments – for example, in the fall they offer Pumpkin Spice Massages to match the spirit of the season! Serenity offers targeted treatments for anti-aging, hydration, stress-relief, and more.
