Although the rooms are very nice, I had trouble communicating with the staff from the moment I made the reservation. The day I tried to check in, not only had they canceled my reservation for some unknown reason, but they ended up charging me for an extra room for some unknown reason as well. The general manager did not return... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in August 2006 and had a great experience. The room was spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. Our baby slept in a pack and play in the bathroom, which worked out nicely, especially since there was a bar area with sink and mirror in the main room. The fridge and microwave were nice to... More

Booked this place after reading the reviews here and ir certainly paid off. I am just back in the UK having been travelling through California and Nevada over a three week period and have to admit the Holiday Inn Express was our best accomodation. The rooms were clean and well serviced, the bed very comfy and the breakfast was excellent.... More

We stayed at this property this past weekend #303. I stayed here because the TripAdvisor website ranked #1 which kind of suprises me although it is a decent property. I prefer the TimberCove Bestwestern but they were supposedly booked this past weekend. Pluses: Great location...within walking distance of the casinos. Staff was friendly and accomodating. Rooms were nicely decorated and... More
