We stayed here as an overnight for a long drive. I was extremely disappointed by our room. It was dirty, old, noisy and looked nothing like the website. The microwave and air con were noisy, and we couldn't even open our window as it looked out on to the inns generator. We tried to go to the pool, but it... More

Clean rooms and a very nice pool. The. common areas are in need of upgrading but overall this is a good place to spend the night. Good customer service and priced well. Will stay again if ever in the area.

The room was OK, but not as nice as on the hotel website picture gallery. The bathroom sink was missing laminate and the wallpaper was dated. The air conditioner caused my head to get stuffed up. The window was filthy and the screen was torn. The hot tub was not working and the pool was always busy since they allow... More

We were greeted very courteously by the employee at the front desk, as well as the night manager, and given a nice, upstairs, non smoking queen room, not too close to the elevators. The room was pleasant and looked to have been recently remodeled, the bathroom looked brand new. We were told there were many rooms in this hotel that... More

We checked in late, about 11:30. Our first room had a smoke detector with a low battery, so it was chirping. I had to go down and get another room. Our second room had paint stains on the bathroom floor, so it looked dirty. The tub was stained and drained extremely slow. Good location, no breakfast. Room came with a... More

I'm sorry to hear you left feeling this way, Suzanne. The one thing I want for all of our guests is to feel comfortable, so it's disappointing to know that wasn't the case for you this time.

If you are just traveling through Nevada, this is a reasonably priced hotel and you'll get a good nights sleep. Our room on the first floor had a door from the parking lot plus a door into the hotel corridor so you didn't have to go outside to move around. It's dated with wallpaper seams opening up, a hole in... More
