We're going to be spending the night in Vegas and getting up the next morning to finish the drive. Staying over on a Monday night at the end of July. I don't want to stay on the strip and need an inexpensive place so probably staying at Sam's Town on the east side, just off of 515 and Boulder Highway. Will I be in trouble fighting morning traffic to get back on I-15 South? Should I go back north up 515 and then south on I-15, cut across to I-15 on a side street like Flamingo or Tropicana, or go south on 515 and take 215 over to I-15? How bad is traffic usually at around 8 am on a Tuesday and which roads are heaviest? If you can recommend another hotel/motel under $40 that's more convenient to leave in the morning, I'd love suggestions. If it's bad enough I'll consider staying elsewhere, maybe in Primm, just not sure if those hotels are good. The reviews I read are mixed, saying very long (over 20 min.) to check in, and some dirty rooms. If anyone has stayed there, how was your hotel, which one did you stay in?
