We stayed at this Holiday Inn and enjoyed it. We got to the hotel the staff was friendly and accomodated us. The rooms we reserved were not available, which could have been a big issue if the staff was not pro-active and cared. They accomodated us with what they had to our satisfaction. We are two families and my niece... More

This is by far the worst Holiday Inn experience I have ever had. The room wad not clean, they did not have laundry facilities on site. I was directed to a laundry mat across the street??? I will not use this experience to gauge other Holiday Inns. All other HI's I have stayed in this trip were excellent. I will... More

This was the second time we stayed at this hotel. The staff was courteous and the room was clean. The location was good. It was located across from the casino and within a two minute drive to the shops. The breakfast bar had a good selection of food items. We will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here while traveling through the mountains and it is a beautiful little place, lovely and quiet with great hospitality. A nice breakfast to start the day off right.

This hotel is located across the street from Harrah's Casino, great for walking. Check in was great, the girl at the counter was wonderful. She told my 4 year old grandson about some of the Indian dances. We entered out room, it was a great size and it seemed to look ok. Once we were settled in we started to... More

This is across the street from the casino. I used points for this stay (25,000). This is ALOT for this hotel, the rate is only $87 so not sure what the big deal is as this hotel is NOT worth paying #25,000 points. They should offer rides across the street for free also. The AC worked great...lol.

My husband and I checked into the hotel for a one night stay on 3/30. Unfortunatley, our requested room type was not ready at the time of check in. It took them approximately 30 mins or so for them to get room ready. They were very apologetic and accomodating due to the hassle. They made right by us by discounting... More
