We needed a place to stay for about a week in Vegas, that has a kitchenette, allows pets, free parking, free wi-fi, and has two queen size beds in one room. This was one of the few that I could find online that fits our budget at about $60/per night for all four of us in one room.
I did read some rather negative or luke-warm reviews about the place, but this one we just had to take a chance on as we had almost zero other options.
The area was great. It seemed like working-class neighbourhood, but still had beautiful mansions on the quiet streets behind the hotel. People walking by and waiting for the bus all seemed very nice. Close to main streets, it was easy to commute to the Strip and other areas of the city we needed to visit. It was close to Target, Food 4 Less, Carl's Jr, McDonald's, Dollar stores etc. All close enough that we could take a walk to with our dog. This is budget travel at the most convenient.
The staff were all very friendly. We got directions, towels, even office supplies from them with no hassle.
Some of the area that needed work: the drainage issue in the sink in the bathroom, bathroom fan, stove burner, carpet, WI-FI, & kitchen utensils. The bathroom sink was terrible to drain. Took forever, until one day I looked down into the drain, and realised there was a 25c coin in the bottom slowing down the water flow. The bathroom had no electric fan. The bathroom was very big and spacious though. One of the stove top burners worked on and off, mostly off. I had read reviews from other members that they had the same issue and took the staff a while to get it fixed, so I didn't bother informing anyone. We learnt that if you poke it with a chopstick, the bad burner maybe rejuvenated. Some of the important kitchen utensils were missing. They provide you with a glass chopping board, but no knife. We had to use a knife we bring with us during hiking to chop up things. There were only two sets of flatware, so bring extras if you are travelling with 2 ppl or more. There was no dishwashing liquid, even though they provide you with a dish cloth. The carpet was in a dark purple colour, so it doesn't show much dirt, but anyone can tell the amount of dirt that's trapped in there. We brought our own slippers so it wasn't a big deal for us. Now the biggest issue: Wi-Fi. It's free, but I would say 80% of the time, I couldn't connect. The first day was great, and the second day nothing was working. I called the front desk, and was informed the issue was affecting the whole complex, and if I really wanted to, they can give me a 1-800 number to call Comcast! By the afternoon, the issue was fixed. However, for the rest of our stay there (the next 5 days), I had a terrible time connecting. My father had a new Windows laptop, and he had much better luck than me. I would say he could connect 60% of the time, whereas my Mac purchased in 2011, I could connect only 20% of the time. One last thing, the hotel provides house cleaning every 7 days during the duration of your stay. So we booked it for the Saturday, which would have been the 3rd out of the 7th day that we were staying. We packed a lot of our items away and took our expensive items with us and left for the day on Saturday. Once we returned, we realised nothing was cleaned. When informing the front desk about the situation, we were told that there was no house-cleaning on weekends. The lady booked us for Saturday at the front desk must made a mistake. We ended up just skipping house-cleaning all together during this trip.
I would stay here again, as I mentioned if we are travelling with our dog (pet fee $10/day, or $50 for the duration of your stay) and needed a kitchenette, this would be a decent place to come back to. We were especially happy with the location of the hotel, but only if you have a vehicle with you.
