“Better further down the strip”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2008

I stayed at this hotel/motel for a couple of nights, towards the latter part of my trip to Vegas, I decided to check out and book further downtown - to get more in the mix of things. The actual Hotel is only around a fifteen minute walk from the strip itself and there are buses that roam downtown which are easily accessible. My only concern with the hotel was the lack of organisation and the area that it was. I had to wait around for a couple of hours for simple requests to be managed. If your walking back from the strip late at night, then you need to be careful. For the price I paid, I got a much better deal further on the strip, staying at one of the casino resorts. This hotel is your typical dive, if you don't have a bed job. Although the local neighbourhood bar, called 'Dino's' is a nice place to go to experince a real American bar - highly recommended drinking venue. Only book this place, if it's last minute.

We stayed at the Tod Motel for three nights in October and found the staff there to be so friendly and helpful.
The room was huge and very clean and presentable. We booked a kitchette room but did not realise that cutlery, pots and pans were NOT provided.
When i told the lady at reception she kindly went out and bought all the equipment to get us through our 3 days. Now how's is that for service!!
The motel is within walking distance of Circus Circus and there's a 24 hour bus right outside the motel taking you down to the main strip.
This place is excellent value for money and would definitely recommend it to others.

  • Liked — The staff were really accomadting, coming from England thats a nice surprise to have real customer service

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2007

Arrived in Las Vegas in mid May 2007 for a new job. Needed a place to stay while looking for housing. Money being an issue I stopped at several motels around town and happened upon the TOD as I was sightseeing on the strip. Compared to the review from 2006 this is definitely a different place. Located on the strip just 2 blocks from the Stratoshpere it is very convenient to both the strip and downtown Las Vegas. This family run motel is being completely redone from top to bottom (without interrupting me). Work progresses daily from new murals on the walls to new security gates. Rooms are modest but comfortable. Easy walking distance to several restaraunts (Boston Pizza right across the street is outstanding!). The people running the place have gone out of their wayto be most accomodating. I have stayed here a total of 4 weeks and would recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable place to stay.

  • Liked — Friendly atmosphere

There is new ownership, i was greeted by a very friendly father and daughter team, as it is newly family owned. They were extremely accomodating and offered me a very affordable rate, the room was newly renovated, clean and was conveniently located on the strip, as a 24hr double decker bus passes right by. There were ample laundry facilities with reasonable prices, and had a home away from home feel. I would stay again. I also just spotted it in the movie LUCKY YOU with Drew Barrymore, loved it!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2006

if you are looking for crack and other assorted drugs this is the place for you.
At any hour of the day or night some stranger might knock on your door to ask for money or whatever.
i was suppose to be there for a week and was only able to put up with it for 3 nights.
The manager does not care about any of the customers that are staying there, and it is dangerous for children.
i have disputed the charge.
