Two male employees were extremely nice. Young man very helpful with car rental (found the best for the price at The Stratosphere "Budget") and he was also helpful with local interests we had. Older man tried to help my Wi-Fi. Others just treated us as a dollar sign doing their job. No casino machines in hotel. Strip club across street,... More

Excellent value for money! Nice quiet hotel, just a short walk from the Stratosphere town. Location by 7/11 and Walgreens so could for snacks and to cook food in microwave/store in fridge in room. Lovely room...members of staff very friendly...relaxing time in pool! I'd mention the air conditioning isn't the best but it does the job, and television choices poor!

This was a last-minute booking and i knew it was going to be below par but what I received was much, much worse. Firstly the "smoke-free" room absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke- it's been absorbed into the carpets and walls. The room is unfinished- there's a gaping hole between the ceiling and the back wall. The television is outdated with... More

If you are looking for a low price hotel not all that far off the strip in LV and don't mind noise late at night this could be perfect for you. The beds are comfortable. The internet works. So far so good. However, when I was there the pool was sketchy, I did not swim but when I walked by... More

Ok so the hotel is on the older side (red carpeting) and it cost us $38 to get there by taxi from the airport. The pool was nice and quiet and it wasn't too far from Fremont Street. Decent restaurant downstairs. Bathtub was able to fit both me and my mate together. July 4-6

The pictures they have up are false advertisement. The rooms are dirty and all around disgusting. I had my children and they were forced to sleep in this room. There was no working phone, the TV didn't work, the blow dryer didn't work and they had no iron. We heard a weird tapping noise on the wall all night. The... More

We decided to go to Vegas at the last minute on Memorial Day weekend. I must've called 20 hotels and none of them accepted pets or they wanted over 100$ for a pet fee! Walking distance from New York New York, Excalibur, and shopping mall. We had a small complaint around 10pm about our neighbors were extremely loud and fighting.... More

We wanted a cheap place to stay on the strip and this did the job. The front desks staff were great and very helpful. Check in process was smooth. The rooms are definitely dated but clean and functional. We did a smoking room which even as a smoker I wouldn't do again. The odor was just too much! Get a... More

I have been staying at this hotel for 3 days. Personnel was really helpful and polite. Room was clean, with good conditioning system (it's important when it's hot outside), comfortable beds and a balcony with a view of pool and palms. I really enjoyed my staying here!:) P.S. I've been here in September 2013, not 2014.
