Much more than just a suburb of its southern neighbor, North Las Vegas is a separate city, the fourth largest (by population) in Nevada. Decatur Blvd forms the western boundary, while the newly extended Bruce Woodbury Parkway (Hwy 215) runs close to the northern edge, a fast developing area where new housing estates are gradually pushing towards the foothills of the Las Vegas Range. Most facilities in the city are towards the east, along the I-15 corridor and the northern end of Las Vegas Blvd, and close to Nellis Air Force Base. One popular attraction is Las Vegas Motor Speedway, built at the edge of the desert beside I-15 exit 54. Most of North Las Vegas is residential, the housing estates separated by a few city parks, business districts and patches of as yet undeveloped land.
Hampton Inn Las Vegas North is located beside I-15 at the Craig Boulevard exit, midway (6 miles) between Las Vegas Motor Speedway and the city center, and 4 miles west of Nellis AFB. The modern, four floor property adjoins a shopping/entertainment center that includes Century Casino, though most of the neighborhood is a business district. There are 96 rooms available, all equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and ironing facilities. The meeting space caters for events of up to 48 people. Free hot breakfast is served.
Spring 2012 saw the opening of a new Marriott extended stay hotel in North Las Vegas, the SpringHill Suites, built at the edge of an industrial area along Craig Road, just west of I-15 (exit 48) and near such locations as Nellis AFB, Shadow Creek Golf Course, College of Southern Nevada and Las Vegas Speedway. There are many restaurants and shops a short walk away to the west. The all suite property features a kitchenette area in all rooms (refrigerator, sink, microwave), free hot breakfast, a business center, meeting space and a swimming pool.
One of the most northerly hotels in Las Vegas, the Holiday Inn Express along Nellis Boulevard makes a good base from which to visit the nearby Las Vegas Motor Speedway or the Nellis AFB. The hotel lies one block from Las Vegas Boulevard, still in a developed area but with patches of empty land nearby; the start of the open desert is a mile to the north. All rooms include a microwave and refrigerator, and the hotel has an outdoor pool, whirlpool, business center and fitness center. Free breakfast buffet is served, including a selection of hot items.
The Best Western Plus is a relatively recent hotel in North Las Vegas, built right next to I-15 - on the west side of the interstate adjacent to exit 48 (Craig Road), and 12 miles north of the casinos of the Strip. The surroundings are mostly industrial but this is a quiet neighborhood, and hotel has a good reputation for cleanliness, comfort and service. Accommodation comprises 74 rooms & suites (the latter with microwave/refrigerator), while the main amenities are a fitness center, outdoor pool, whirlpool, guest laundry and a small business center. Free full breakfast is served; for other meals the nearest restaurants are half a mile away along Craig Road.
Rooms at the Comfort Inn & Suites Las Vegas look out over a quiet, industrial/residential neighborhood right on the north edge of the city, a few blocks from Nellis Air Force Base, and also close to Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Community College of Southern Nevada, and Shadow Creek Golf Course. The large, modern, 3 floor hotel sits on the corner of Lamb Boulevard and Craig Road, a mile along either road from interstate 15 (exits 50 and 48 respectively), and adjacent to several restaurants. Guests can take advantage of free deluxe continental breakfast, an outdoor pool, hot tub and exercise room.
The pet friendly, budget-priced Super 8 offers 110 guest rooms, in two long, exterior corridor blocks either side of the spacious central parking area, which has an outdoor pool on the north side, well away from the main road (Las Vegas Boulevard, near the Craig Road intersection). The immediate neighborhood is mostly residential, but there are many restaurants & shops nearby, plus such locations as Mike O'Callaghan Federal Medical Center, Community College of Southern Nevada and Nellis AFB. Rooms are available with sofa bed and hot tub bath. Wi-fi and continental breakfast are complimentary.
Open late 2018, the Motel 6 is the first hotel serving the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, located at the Speedway Boulevard exit of Interstate 15 (northwest side), facing undeveloped desert to the rear. Like most newly constructed properties of this brand the motel has interior corridors and a modern appearance, with bright decor and colorful rooms. A gas station, restaurant and convenience store will be built nearby. The hotel has plenty of parking space, and it offers free coffee, free wi-fi and coin-operated laundry.
