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.

This wasn't too expensive and the location was good, but it wasn't the nicest either. No ESPN on TV and very basic, but it was quiet, especially because it was close to the airport. The wireless was slow also. Hooters and Tropicana are just down the street and MGM was across the street. I may use it again since I... More

We reserved the family suite for 2 nights. When attempting to settle in for the first night, we notice empty beer bottles from the previous guests in a corner of the room. One of the 2 televisions did not work, and the remote for the other TV seemed 'sticky' (I'm glad I did not have a black light). In the... More

Room was a nice surprise. Nice and clean. The lady at the front desk was very plesent and helpful. We had noisy neighbors but 1 call took care of that fast. The only issue we had was with the General Manager. He decided to lock us out of our room while we were grabbing a bite to eat down the... More

The room smelled terribly of smoke even though it was a non smoking room. The carpet is old and needs replacing. Several cars, including mine were vandalized in the parking lot. I will NEVER stay at a Howard Johnson's again and will not recommend it to anyone.
