The Stardust was one of the very first hotels I stayed in, thus it has a rather fond spot in my heart (then it was ripped out 2006, but I'm getting ahead with this heart burn). I stayed in the motel section in the back, but the place had its flashing romantic charm, nevertheless.
Plus, the local radio station KDWN-AM broadcast their daily sports show Stardust Sports Line with Lee Pete. See the KDWN page for further details.
