Wanted to stay an extra night at luxurious villa by gondola, but didn't want to spend that much. HJ room was large, clean, close to the action; and the price, especially on short notice, was excellent.

We stayed here overnight travelling from Red Bluff to Vegas. The staff are welcoming and friendly. The room was basic and in need of some updating (curtains well worn) but it was very clean and inexpensive. It suited our needs for a restful nights sleep whilst travelling. Would stay here again.

Thank you so much for taking time to give us your feedback. In fact, we have placed an order to replace all the curtains and are waiting for them (hope another 2-3 weeks). Thanks again for your comments and hope to see you in the future. More

Owner is very friendly and nice. Hotel is conveniently located to safe ways market and several good breakfast cages. Rooms are clean, free parking and wifi access. Close to all the major casinos. Oh and free breakfast.
