purpose of stay was to attend a concert at Harrah's Casino - hotel is just a short walk away, but be careful crossing the busy highway! Breakfast was okay, what you would typically expect, but I must commend the breakfast area staff for being extremely pleasant and working very hard to keep items stocked. Front desk clerks were also friendly... More

Hotel is very conveniently located to the casino and is within walking distance. Rooms were ok, bed slept fairly well. Thought the room was a little over price considering how much the casino roomd were going for that same weekend but they were sold out. Breakfest is the usual Holiday Inn breakfest Would stay again though

Room was very nice and well appointed. On the flip side as far as sleeping forget it. Walls are paper thin, could hear neighbor's tv, and even one of them going to the bathroom. Upstairs neighbors walked very heavy. Would probably not stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in December. It was a good stay. I was very happy to be able to check in early, by about 3 hours. The room was in okay condition. It's not the newest hotel, but if you are going to the casino, it's good. I was disappointed there wasn't a fridge in... More

Its a Holliday Inn Express.......not the Ritz.... The room was spacious and had plenty of work space. On the flip side, the refrigerator was loud and the mattress flat. The breakfast left much to be desired. Its alright for the night if you are just passing through, but I wouldn't want to spend a lot of time there.

We booked a room almost 2 months ago. We were confirmed through Orbitz for a 2 queen NONSMOKING room. When we got there the guy at the desk stated "we're out of nonsmoking rooms". He said it was Orbitz fault. He gave me a choice of staying in the room or not. There was no way they would refund or... More
