Every other time we stay here it is either good or bad! This time was bad! The room was filthy...just gander behind the enormous piece of furniture that houses the dinky TV or look at the carpet or smell the too strong perfume scent of the room deodorizer! The carpet should be replaced with laminate floors and try cleaning the... More

I don't know about the newly remodeled room, but the old room I stayed in is just not very good. Bed was old and hard, room didn't smell good (heavy disinfectant, which makes me think that WAS better than the underlying smell). I very seldom give a bad rating or critical review of a business, on this site, but there... More

An aging property that is working for your business by remodeling the rooms. The room rates are reasonable. We stayed in an non-remodeled room and saved a couple of bucks. All the amenities were in working order. It felt odd to use an actual key in the door. If staying in Hawthorne, NV this would be a good choice.

We found this place on line and we like it. Our room is remodeled with a great walk in shower and flat screen TV. We found it handy to downtown and kind of funky old Vegas style. The staff was helpful as we were an early check in. We'll stay here again.

The rooms that have not been recently remodeled are very dirty. Our room had cigarette burn holes and yellow stains in the comforters. When arriving I wiped the whole place down with Clorox wipes and they were dark brown when I finished. Shower curtain in the bathroom has probably been there for 20 plus years. The smell of the room... More

The first time we stayed the room was $52.00 very old and worn out, the floor just outside our room was rotted and felt like you'd fall through, second time we got a suite $72 on lower level, was a nice big room and slightly updated very comfortable. 3rd time we stayed we took one of the remodeled rooms, wasn't...

First off, we are not rich, but we enjoy a middle class hotel to make our money stretch. After saying NOWAY to the Sand, and Monarch we ended up here because the Americas Best Inn was over $100.00 We stayed in the "newly remodeled section" $5,00 more a night (remodeled in the late 1980's) The carpet was the worst stained...

My husband and I stayed there Wednesday, April 29th. The room was the dirtiest we've ever experienced in this country, but we'd driven ten hours, and it was the only "pet-friendly" room available. The wastepaper basket in the bathroom was overflowing with garbage. There was a used, dried up washcloth in the bathtub, and when I picked it up to... More

We were excited that the rooms were recently remodeled, well guess what. Only a few were and not the one we got to stay in. However it was comfortable, clean linens, and two of our group felt beds were comfy.

We were supposed to go to Bishop, california on our way to Las Vegas but the 395 was closed due to wildfires so detoured to Hawthorne to catch the 95 to Vegas the next day. Asked at the petrol station where best to stay and the attendant gave me the address for the El Capitan. It was perfect. Lovely helpful... More
