Pretty bad when you don't take you close off. Total rip off. It is dirty and beat up. Asked for non smoking and get the next rooms smoke. What a way to reck a holiday Rating this a 1 is way to high. I don't think they ever changed the mattress since this place was built

We stayed in 3 rooms on the first floor. The hotel looks good from the outside. Inside it is worn. It's apparent they've tried to upgrade the hotel, but as cheaply as possible. The smoke detector system is in exposed conduit punched through the room walls. Cable dangles from the ceiling with exposed splitters. The rooms are dim, no bedside... More

The Motel is really cheap and close to the main restaurants and casinos, with free parking and free wi-fi. Our room was big enough, not perfectly clean though, and sheets where old and worn. But again, that's what I expected from a 60$ motel. Not bad at all.

Not a great place but ok for a night. Comfortable beds. Pleasant staff. Many tv channels. The room I had was quiet. Safely, the pool is closed; perhaps if us open In Summer. Good parking. Coffee only, no breakfast. Has a seedy feel to it. Cheap fuel next door.

We were traveling through Nevada and were happy to see a smiling face at 3am when we finally stopped for the night. The lady at the front desk was courteous and gave us a small discount on our room which was great for our travelling budget. The room was clean and warm, which was a welcoming feeling after coming in... More

We got two rooms. The hallway was gross, smelly and the carpet was very stained. The first room smelled awful but we couldn't figure out the smell. The second room smelled like someone had urinated all over the floor. We returned the keys and immediately left. Sleeping in your car would be better than this place. We ended up at... More

Need I say more. I am embarrassed that I tried to save a couple of dollars by staying here. The owners don't seem to care that they are running a pig-pen. The hired help is congenial, but they are not given what they need to make this place acceptable. For a budget motel, go to the Motel 6.

We were driving through Nevada on I80 and needed a place to stay for the night. My theory was that so long as we just needed a bed for a few hours sleep, it didn't matter where we stayed since there would be the same minimal standard in effect everywhere. Bad mistake! This place shows there is no floor on... More

At 1:00 am with a dog in the car we were lucky to find a place. The lady at the desk wasn't certain we wouldn't find guests already in the room because she misplaced the ledger but hey, we lucked out! No AC but the two queen beds smelled nice n bleachy and the shower was great. Cheap and fine... More
