We booked this hotel on line and upon arrival thought "Oops." The area is not the greatest and the outside is a bit drab. But within half a day we were happy as we could be. We were in town on business and stayed 5 days. You can find flashier places in Las Vegas, but I doubt you can find a more honest value for your money.
Our first night in town was at the Tuscan Suites. Much fancier place, but they nickel and dime you for everything... $15/day spa charge, $13/day Wifi, extra charge for using the business center, extra charge for anything you need.
Best Western Mardi Gras didn't upcharge anything! Free Wifi (granted, it is spotty, but it works), free Business Center with free printing. The laundry room is clean and well lit and right priced. The restaurant is really good, especially the burgers!, and is fairly priced. The rooms are a bit dated, but clean, comfortable, and the staff does a great job cleaning every day. We walked to the convention center every day (saved us $$$). There is a free shuttle to the Strip and to the airport, with free return pickup, too. If you want glitzy and enjoy being ripped off, go anywhere else. If you want old school value for dollar, the Mardi Gras fits the bill.
The best thing about the place is its staff. Every employee I dealt with was extremely friendly and helpful. Especially Susie and Salvador at the front desk. The last night we were there the owner was in town from San Diego and came over and chatted with us while we were having supper in the restaurant. Both waiters in the restaurant were friendly and prompt. And there is always somebody cleaning. The groundskeeper works hard to keep things neat, the housekeeping staff are always working and easy to find if you need something.
Bottom line: we had a fine stay and will be back!
