Las Vegas Walking - Oasis Motel and Stu Ungar

Las Vegas, Nevada

The Oasis Motel, which is where WSOP poker star Stu Ungar was found dead in room number 6, in November 1998, is a 2 minute walk from the south end of Las Vegas's First Friday.  It is also only 3 or 4 minutes walking from the Stratosphere.

So if you attend a First Friday in Las Vegas, or if you happen to be at the Stratosphere, this is a place very nearby.

Stu Ungar is not around anymore; who knows how long the already old motel will remain?  May as well check it out while you can.

The Oasis Motel is located at 1731 Las Vegas Blvd.  If you were at the Stratosphere, you would walk across Las Vegas Blvd, and then walk noth so that you pass Denny's restaurant on your left.  And you will then come upon the motel on your right in a few blocks.

Along the way you will also pass a Chinese Food and Donut joint.  I never ate there.  In fact I usually walk on the other side of the street where White Cross Drugs is located.  They have a lunch counter.

Thank you for visiting
