I would characterize our stay as enjoyable and well worth the small price we paid for the night. If you want a nice, reasonably priced place that has the feeling of luxury and class that is away from the Strip area, then Sam's is the place to go.
We had a one night stay - this was our first time to stay here.
Clean room and bathroom - standard size. It has a wonderful parklike/forested courtyard area in the center of the complex which is flanked on four sides by the hotel rooms. This gives it a pleasant "New York tenement building block" feel. The courtyard is topped by an enclosed glass ceiling and air conditioned to "brr" cold. Which is OK since outside is 100 degrees plus but it was still too indecently cold for me.
We parked in the parking structure adjacent to the hotel. Be sure to take the proper parking structure - there was a huge one to the south which was not the primary one for the hotel.
The check-in was on one side of the courtyard area. Not entirely self-evident - we had to ask a worker where it was. Check-in was fast, friendly and efficient.
We ate at the Fireside buffet. I would rate it comparable in quality to the larger Las Vegas buffets but with limited choices. The dessert bar was pretty decent in size and quality of items.
At night there is a laserlight show with music and animated critters in the courtyard. It was pretty spectacular given that it was free. You need to jockey for good viewing spots. I opted to view from one of the windows that looks out onto the courtyard from an upper floor in the hotel.
