My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night while travelling from Vegas to the Hoover Dam. The receptionist was friendly, the decorations are like something out of the 70s and everything was clean. Take into account that it was super cheap and this is the perfect spot to stay if you want to be close to Vegas, but not... More

Right on the main street, only 2 blocks from downtown. 8 of us stayed while attending an event in BC. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Even went above and beyond to help us find an i-phone charger. Rooms were extremely clean.Beds were comfy. This is definitely a motel, not a 5 star hotel but well worth the stay. Will... More

The day after I stayed at this motel, the credit card number I used was stolen and fraudulent charges were billed on a mail-order website by someone with knowledge of my billing address. This motel is the only place it could have been.

I can't imagine a more relaxing break from the highway. I love the 1930s era building, updated with double glazed windows for deep quiet. The sparkling pool was the perfect antidote to a long solo drive, soothing my jangled nerves and my ringing ears. Immaculate room and bathroom, comfortable bed, brand new fluffy thirsty towels, early morning coffee outside, friendly... More

I really wanted to like this place as I had seen it when we were in BC earlier in the year and with the big Fifties style neon sign it looked like a charming blast from the past and had some amazing reviews on all the review sites I had seen, as been one of the best places in BC... More

Very clean, comfortable room. Quiet. Great location and price. Close to restaurants. Would stay here again instead of Las Vegas. Very friendly, helpful staff. Free coffee in the morning. Wished we had had time to use the pool.

This was a last minute booking 5 hours before I arrived to Las Vegas. I thought the motel appearance would be less than a motel 6. Boy, was I impressed. Initially, I had a room that was for smoking. When I was booking the room I think my hesitation could be heard but the young lady offered to air the... More

This is a lovely peaceful spot and the hotel has a really retro feel about it. The room was spotless, although the air conditioning left a little to be desired-the room was very warm. There's a nice pool with lots of loungers, and if you're staying visit the South West Diner next door for dinner.

Loved the feeling of this motel. It was very clean. Our room was clean and comfortable especially after a long drive. The staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. It had a refrigerator and microwave and free wi-fi. The pricing was just right.

This is a very clean, small motel. It was perfect for my family of six to hang their hat after a day of traveling across the country. Convenient to grocery stores. Good coffee. We had the three queen bed room. The room with the single bed had the lumpiest softest mattress. It was really bad. The other two mattresses were... More
