what else is downtown besides the Golden Nugget?

I'm ok with cool old architecture, but I'm worried that it translates into skanky rooms with mystery stains.

No great shakes downtown. Your fears are justified.
I'd look for a deal on the Strip -- business is waaaay down. Caeser's is pretty cool for over-the-topness. Trop is good for its outdoor pools, but make sure they're still open. MGM has big rooms.
There's a Motel 6 near the Trop if you want to go cheap.

Really! Good $2 shrimp cocktails at the Golden Gate downtown however.

Red Rock Canyon. Death Valley. Thee Doubledown. Liberace museum. Elvis' cadillac at Imperial Palace. Elvis' outfits at Hilton. Good thrift shopping in north Vegas. Overpriced records at Record City.
Depressing oldsters robotically playing slot machines everywhere you go.

Fuck.

I have seen some decent looking deals right on the strip and I'm thinking that a cab ride downtown for photos may be in order.

I don't want to go all that way and stay in a nasty room.

The Millionaire will be glad to hear about that shcrimp cocktail deal

Check out this site. It gives really good reviews on everything you could want in Vegas and they're not ashamed to tell the truth. Here's their intro to the Bellagio review:
When people talk about how mature Vegas has become, the Bellagio is often used as an example. Well, they're right. This joint is nothing if not mature. But so are a lot of people who have to use adult diapers. And apparently maturity comes with two things with we're not particularly fond of: high prices and pretention. Call us crazy, but we like our gambling resorts tacky, noisy and just a little weird. If your idea of the perfect hotel includes a bathroom you can tell your neighbors about, then this place is for you.

Overpriced records at Record City.

i bought a record there for a dollar and sold it for $650, so there is a bargain every now and then.


Red Rock Canyon.

This is a MUST. drive the 13 mile scenic loop. it's worth your time.
