This worked well for us. An extremely functional hotel at a very good price. Though it is not on the Strip, they have a shuttle to downtown hourly. For a short stay, just to "experience" Las Vegas, this was a great value.

Stayed here back in May for a week with a great deal with Thompson Holidays, we was a bit worried about stopping off the strip. but there was no need to be. the area was fine, we felt safe walking around day and night. We got a warm welcome on arrival. I must say its a lot more personal service... More

If you're looking for adequate and comfortable lodging off "The Strip" and still be walking distance to the main attractions on the strip, this is a good choice. Older 3 story motel that provides basic travelers needs - clean room, comfortable beds, 24 hour restaurant and bar, bathroom with tub/shower, pool/hot tub and some slot machines. Within walking distance to... More

While my journey I changed 6 hotels. To be honest, this is not the best hotel but it stable on second place. Good location for price. 20-30 minutes walk to main attraction. The best breakfast of my journey just for 8$, don't be surprised but it is the cheapest breakfast too. There is Casino in the hotel, where i won... More

We had a lovely pleasant stay at the hotel. The weather was good, the people at the hotel were great including both customers and staff, especially Jerrie the bartender. Being on the back of the strip this is a more peaceful hotel.

Most of the reception staff need training in customer service. They had removed the coffee machines from the rooms after our booking. Reasonably clean but we had to remove the hair from the sink plug so the water would drain away. The first lot of towels although they had been washed had very bad stains. The top sheet on the...

I booked this room mostly because we needed a place that allow us to keep our dog with us. There aren't too many places in Vegas that will allow that unless you want to pay a nominal fee. Anyway, we got into town early and attempted to check in around 1:30. We were told the room wasn't ready and we... More

I usually give places I visit a reasonable chance before drawing a conclusion. Well, this one is on the fence. While planning a week long road trip I thought I would save a little cash by staying in a less elaborate hotel off the strip.

Wasn't this place in an episode of Cops? Me thinks so, by regardless, this is only a review of the casino. It's tiny. Smaller than anything on the strip or downtown.
