Las Vegas isn’t typically thought of as being an affordable destination, but I’ve already proven that you CAN visit Vegas on a budget. An important part of traveling on a budget is finding affordable accommodation. Using AirBnB in Las Vegas is the best way to do just that!
AirBnB is a great option because you’ll get a lot of benefits you won’t get at a hotel. Between high room rates, resort fees, and parking fees, hotels in Las Vegas can be pretty expensive. And just by spending your time in the hotel, at the casino, and in their restaurants, you’re likely to spend even more.
Staying in an AirBnB in Las Vegas will cut out the hotel fees and extra expenses. Having your own kitchen will save you a lot on food, and you’ll be less tempted to head out to the overpriced restaurants every time you need a bite to eat. Plus, when it’s time to get some rest, you’ll be glad you’re staying off the Strip, where you can get some peace and quiet.
I love browsing through AirBnB listings, so I thought I’d put together a list of some awesome, affordable Las Vegas AirBnB rentals.

Affordable Las Vegas Airbnbs
Please keep in mind that some Las Vegas AirBnB rentals also charge cleaning fees. Most rentals charge a higher price on weekends. Check each listing for details. Because of the nature of Las Vegas tourism, many hosts will also require a security deposit for damages. To get the best rates, book your stay during the week, split the cost with friends, and be respectful of your hosts & their property.
Modern Condo in the Heart of Downtown Las Vegas
Location: Downtown Las Vegas
From the Host: “Located in the heart of downtown. A two minute walk will put you into the commercial area of downtown, where there are tons of bars, casinos, and great restaurants. Or, grab an Uber, Lyft, or taxi and you can be on the strip in 10 minutes, or in the Arts District in 5 minutes. We’d love to give you suggestions on where to go or what to do. Our community is gated and the complex has designated parking.”
From a Reviewer: “I had an amazing stay at Wasim’s condo. He was very helpful, flexible and easy to get a hold of. The condo was very clean and modern, and he had all the silver wear/dishes you need to cook a meal or pack a lunch to take with you. The condo was in a safe, quiet gated community, it was in a very convenient location. A quick ten minute drive to the strip, (I was able to walk there) and a ten minute walk to Fremont street, and bars/ restaurants, if you like night life.”
Why it Made the List: This condo looks like the perfect size for a quick trip to Vegas, plus it has everything you need. Downtown is my preferred location for any Vegas trip.
Mystic Moon Suite
Location: Near Downtown & the Arts District
From the Host: “The Mystic Moon Gallery Suite is the perfect setting to showcase the finest of Las Vegas’s home-grown artist. Sultry and deep, the midnight blue walls are soft and inviting. As soon as you enter, shining out from that sea of blue, you’ll see our amazingly realistic two and a half foot diameter glowing moon. There’s also free high speed WiFi, and a comfortable queen bed with rich, red velvet curtains and beautiful crystal chandelier to ensure you fall asleep with a twinkle in your eye on your Vegas vacation.”
From a Reviewer: “We had an amazing stay at the Mystic Moon Suite. The value you get (location, ambiance, vibe) is clearly refreshing. [The Host] is super fast to respond and very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended!!”
Why it Made the List: This room immediately caught my attention—it has such a cool vibe and looks like a fun place to spend a couple of days. I appreciate the artistry that went into this place.
Super Cute Airstream Trailer
Location: 20 minutes from the Strip
From the Host: “Enjoy your stay in a unique, newly restored 1971 Airstream! Everything you need is on board. Very clean with attractive decor that’s both fun and hip. Roomy and open floor plan with plenty of light! Also, black out shades for a good nights rest. The kitchen has a small refrigerator, stove, toaster, coffeemaker and utensils. The bathroom has a shower, tub and new toilet.”
From a Reviewer: “I enjoyed my stay in the remodeled Airstream. Jason and Kathy were great hosts that ensured a comfortable stay. It was clean, modern and comfortable. It was conveniently located to downtown, the strip, and other tourist destinations. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. I would definitely stay here again!”
Why it Made the List: If you’re looking for a different kind of Vegas vacation, this could be a fun experience. There are so many outdoor adventures to be had in the area, and staying in an Airstream is a great addition to the adventure.
Modern & Comfy 2BR 2BA
Location: Near UNLV
From the Host: “Right on the edge of UNLV, this location is perfect for those looking to have easy access to the university, or those who would like a short drive downtown or to the strip. This quiet second floor condo has 2 beds, 2 baths, sleeps 6 and has private covered parking. The condo is newly furnished.”
From a Reviewer: “Situated close to the airport and The Strip it is a perfect location for a stay in Las Vegas. Amey and Chesley are great hosts. Their apartment is worth every penny, it is clean and contains everything you need. Twice we had a very pleasant stay in their apartment.”
Why it Made the List: This apartment looks comfortable, and seems like the perfect size for a short trip. It’s also very affordable compared to other listings in the area.
Vintage Glitz Suite
Location: Near Downtown & the Arts District
From the Host: “Welcome to our lavish, romantic apartment suite! With sparkly glitter walls that twinkle like crazy under custom built lights and decadent decor, this space was uniquely created to harken back to the glitzy past of Las Vegas. Jayne Mansfield’s Pink Palace was used as the inspiration for the design. This apartment has a mid-century vibe, with fresh renovations for modern luxury.”
From a Reviewer: “Amazing every time! I’ve stayed here twice and it’s just so adorable the people in the area are really nice it’s easy to get in and out, great parking, amazing downtown location close to lots of cool stuff and just a really cozy spot. Such lovely decor! My favorite spot in Vegas for sure”
Why it Made the List: This is another adorable AirBnB from a well-established host in the Las Vegas area. I love the Downtown & Arts District area, so this seems like a good location—it is residential, however, not a main tourist area.
