The place is disgusting! absolutly dirty, bad smell from the entrance to the rooms. In the rooms there were cockroaches everywhere! even in the beds!!! in the walls.. the bathroom was horrible! We had to ask for a refund and find another hotel that night. The lady was nice... I felt bad for her, but that place was inhospitable.

It's cheap, and if you are traveling with friends, it will be an inside joke for years to come. The room itself was OK, but the pool was "closed" during the day and only open at night. For vampires that like to swim? Never really got an explanation. But in any case, the pool was so dirty we didn't want... More

I booked this stay online because it was cheap, 2 hours away from pricey Vegas, a one night stay and the reviews all said it was clean. It was only $36.00 and when I got there around 6:30PM, I had my doubts because the outside walls needed paint and office looked like something out of the 1950's. They still use... More
