Place was clean but dated. People running in hallways at midnight. No thermostat in room so it was uncomfortable sleeping. Bed squeaked. No elevator. Good location with many places to eat and shop nearby. Unable to get wifi to work on laptop

The hotel was almost vacant yet, we were given a room at the back end of the hotel. The backend of the hotel parking lot was empty and entrance door was wide opened.... More

Dirty bathroom, hair in... More

It is in need of some updating, carpet is stained, needs new coat of paint... but there are some good points. OUTDOOR pool, only one in the area. Good Mexican place right on site to eat at. they have casino shuttle. and the indoor pool area is nice. The hotel room was clean, the beds were soft (shocking) and linens... More
