For hotel rooms, check the hotels.com website. When I was working in Vegas last year, I couldn't find an apartment right away, so I was forced to stay in hotels in the 3 months that I was there. I checked their website weekly, because the rates go up the closer you are to the date that you are planning to stay. The first month I stayed at the Marriott and used my Marriott rewards points. After that I was hotel hopping from week to week.

You could get rates that are as low as $25 in some known hotels, although it wouldn't be the Luxor or MGM. The "Station" chain can be as low as $29 + tax. Our favorite was the Boulder Station. (I got great accolades when I sang Karaoke there!LOL)

Hotwire website, also. You can book your hotel (same price as hotel.com) AND car rental. Last week they had mid-size cars for $11.95+tax/day, and full size for $13.95+tax/day. So, I can imagine that a sub-compact will be less than $10/day.

Hope this helps.
