    Fabulous Las Vegas

    So the old lady and I are headed to Las Vagas next week, and I have encountered a slight problem. The Monte Carlo wants $14.99/ day/ computer for internet access. I need to have access so I can participate in my college courses. I'm really not looking to pay $75 for internet while I'm there. I was thinking that some places out there gotta have free wifi, but a search returned nothing. Anyone have any good gouge on some free wifi in sin city?

    I know they have free WiFi in Starbucks. Im sure there are 6,000 of them in Las Vegas. Grab a coffee and a scone and get your learn on!

    I thought of that too, but I figured if all the hotels didn't offer free wifi, why wouldnt starbucks...but it is a possibility...

    I was just trying to have a plan prior to going out there...didn't wanna look like some kinda geek walking down the strip with a laptop and charger under my arm

    ask for internet to be included in your room rate. I always negotiate it out or tell them it worked horrible and I want it removed. Works 99.99% of the time. Just be nice, dont be a jerk....remember the honey bee catching thing..like its worth calling the manager and saying you would LOVE to stay in his hotel but need web for school work, can they include it so you wont stay elsewhere? Times are real tough now for hotels - they give that crap away quick to sell rooms. 99% of people dont ask.

    I travel for a living and think its downright criminal to charge for the internet, most places dont anymore or are willing to waive it.

    Vegas also charges because they do NOT want you in the room on the web, for obvious reasons.

    Also check the lobby, other hotels, etc...free wifi is easy to find.

    Road goal - never pay for the internet. Its free.

    I was sitting at the drive up window of a MacDonalds here in NC and looked up at the window and there it was............free wifi. Who takes their laptop to MacDonalds? Anyway, give it a try and look em up on the net.

    If you happen to need medical attention while here, ask to go to Sunrise Hospital. They have free wifi.
    Its only about 5 blocks east of the Strip. Just a thought...
