I doubt any have a parking fee, because they would like you to park there so you have to use, I mean walk through thier casino.

I've used the valets at a few of the strip hotels and it's free too.


On Freemont Street there is a parking structure at the west end. It used to cost money and be super easy to get validated but this was 10-15 years ago and I've heard it's free now.

on the main strip, mandalay to wynn, and a few more north properties have no charge parking, both self parking and valet.

fremont's main parking garage does charge and there are pay to park parking spots around that area.

and depending on where you stay or want to visit, sometimes it is easier to park at a hotel next to the one you would like to visit. like caesar's, planet hollywood, palazzo have off strip, less busy entrances for self parking, so you can maneuver up and down those sides while finding plenty of parking, and much easier exits at anytime

Unless you are downtown, I can only think of one place in Vegas that charges for parking. That is the parking garage next to the United Artist theatre and Gameworks on the Strip. It costs a flat $3, which you pay up front. The downtown casinos (not near the Strip) do charge for parking, but the charge is usually waived once validated. Therefore, it is collected when you leave assuming you did not validate or validation does not cover your entire parking time.

Last week, we encountered a variation of this.

They charged $3 to enter the parking lot, which was refunded in cash if you went into the casino and presented your receipt to the cashier.

We didn't mind, as we were having dinner at that casino anyway.

All the strip hotels have free self parking. With Valet at the hotels it is free but its usually customary to tip $1 when you drop off your car and $1 when you pick it up. Those guys don't get paid a lot so the $2 may not seem like much to you but it helps them out a lot.

On Fremont, if you park in the Binion's parking garage it's 3 hours free as long as you get your ticket validated at the cashier's cage. 3 hours is plenty of time down there to see everything worth seeing(even to catch a show and dinner). You can also park Valet at any casino (pending it isn't full) and it's free(again, its customary is to tip $1 on drop off and pick up).
