I stayed with a group of 3 friends, sharing a double room with 2 double beds. It was a little cosy, but fine for a few nights. The beds were comfy and the room was clean - pretty much what you would expect from a standard 3 star hotel.
The main advantage of this hotel is its location - you won't get a better price for a room in the heart of the strip. Also there is no resort tax, unlike other hotels on the strip. If you won't be spending much time in your room and are looking for a good value base while in Vegas, I would definitely recommend the Best Western.
Having said that, there were a couple of points that could be improved on. We called reception a few times for a number of matters (to get extra towels, to fix a light fitting, and for help with the aircon) and it took hours and on one occassion a follow up call to reception for the maintenance staff to actually come up to assist. Also, the shutters weren't great at keeping out light, so I would suggest bringing an eye mask if you are easily woken by sunlight.
The other point I should mention is that Uber will not pick up from this hotel! You have to go to either Harrah's, the Mirage or the Venetian, which are all fairly close, however if you are visiting from overseas and relying on the wifi to order your uber it can be a pain, as it takes longer than 5mins to get across to these pickups.
Some friends of ours were staying in the Bellagio at the same time, and whilst their room was obviously bigger and more luxurious, I don't think it warranted the huge price difference. If you want to save money and aren't worried about your hotel room looking a little tired, Casino Royale is a good option. less
