My wife and I have made this our own vacation getaway tradition. The rooms are very clean and remarkably huge. The beds are ultra-comfortable. Free WiFi! The walk-in tiled shower is amazing and the extra large jacuzzi is only outdone by the extra small price. This has got to be the best value for a hotel room I have ever... More

Great stay! Quiet and clean! Great downtown location! The hotel is older but is well maintained. Enjoyed listening to the creek, and watching the aerial tram. We didn't use the pool, but looked clean. Biscuits and gravy were yummy!

We stayed at this Hotel for a week and had a great experience. Overlooks the river and is very close to town. Our room was good size. They also had free cookies. The only negative was the size of the pool, which was on the smaller side. Would return.

Still currently staying here. Great hotel and friendly staff. Only issue we have is the room nearby smoking pot constantly on the balcony so we cannot even open the balcony door. We called the front desk twice now and told them which room and they have done nothing. Regretting booking the room for another night when we checked in.

The ladies who clean the rooms do an excellent job making sure it is done to perfection. They are all very friendly and offer the charm of the area. The location on the creek... More

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights while on a road trip. We liked the location - it's within walking distance of the main strip but is also set back so it's a bit quieter. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and lots of places to shop for souvenirs. The location is also very close to many... More

Let me first tell you the good. Loved the location, the private balcony, the cleanliness of the room & the nice staff. The breakfast was ok but I'm not going to complain because I didn't have to go out and buy breakfast. The worst was the mattress it was TERRIBLE they were so old and sunk in you couldn't sit... More

Room was very clean. The view from the balcony was amazing. The hotel is off the main strip but close enough to walk to all main attractions. We will stay here the next time we are in town. Highly recommend this hotel!

Room was clean. The view from the balcony was absolutely beautiful. We are planning on staying here next year, so close to all the action downtown, but yet off the strip where it was quiet and peaceful!!!
