There's A Moon Over Fremont Street
If you're familiar with a certain stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard between the Strip and Downtown, you'll have noticed a certain motel has painted over the word "Adult" that used to precede "Movies" on their marquee, but no such qualms at the Desert Moon Motel at 1701 E. Fremont Street, which advertises XXX movies on flat-screen TVs. According to Cheryl the manager, the building dates back to the 1940's and has even appeared in a few movies over the years. Long-time readers will be familiar with my twin passions for movies and Las Vegas history... Anyway. Rooms start at $44.80 (tax included and no deposit) on weekday nights, and Friday-Saturday range from $56 up to $95 plus tax for jacuzzi rooms with a 55-inch TV. Currently on special: jacuzzi rooms for $85.99 plus tax midweek.
