Disgusting! The owners were so rude right off the bat. Rooms had mold every where, smelled nasty! DO NOT EVER STAY THERE!! They had irty floors and blankets. I asked for my money back and they didn't even try to accommodate me or listen to my concerns.

My room looked nothing like the photos on here. It looked like a room suitable for someone who only needed to rent the room by the hour (if you know what I mean). Was scared to walk around without shoes. Furniture old and stained. Most the switches to the light fixtures were broken. TV was a flat screen, but fuzzy... More

This place was disappointing. The room was really stinky and only half assed clean. The door was not easy to open. One of the drawers in the dresser was turned upside down and was just hanging there, obviously broken. When I alerted the front desk he thought I wanted to have maintenance come fix it...no, just don't want to be... More

When me and my two grown daughters checked in last Friday, we were shocked. The room was definitely NOT remodeled. There was a dirty bandaid hanging off of the peephole. The bathtub never quit running, and I saw a cockroach in it. The toilet would barely flush, and I noticed a plunger in the bathroom. Gross. Thank goodness we had... More

I just wish I had read the reviews before checking in. First the good, it was clean and did not stink. The bad: The AC was noisier than normal. The bathtub did not drain. The toilet was small and loose. The light switch in the bathroom was broken. A light bulb in the bathroom was missing. A light fixture was... More

When I checked in I went to take a look at the room. It smelled like it had just been cleaned, but the smell didn't stay when I left the room door open to get my things. AC worked very good, staff was ok. Not super friendly, but I wouldn't say they are unfriendly either. Down to business and I... More

Like other reviewers, don't let the outside fool you. We have a king bed, no smoking. $58. per night. Brand new: carpet, furniture, beds, tile in bathroom. New bath sinks, shower, paint. Totally new inside the room. Yes it is small, but for one or two people, perfect. In room coffee, microwave, frig, flat screen TV, computer desk, great WiFi.... More

Needed a place to stay near the caverns and thought since it was winter, it would be easy to find a place without a reservation. We got into town and tried 6 places and all were booked. We got to the end of the strip and saw the Continental. It looked like a dump but there was a "Vacancy" sign... More

We had to get a room because it was late at night and I was tired from a long day of driving. There were no rooms available at other places I stopped so took the one open here. What a mistake!!! There were what appeared to be blood stains on the linens on one of the beds. The trash can... More

When we first got in to the room there was a smell so thinking if we turn on the AC it might clear the room smell did not go away. There was loud yelling from other rooms all night. The wifi was fast, it had a micro fridge and a micro we did not use the micro. The toilet was... More
