Our room was clean (and dated) and everything worked OK. The staff was friendly and helpful. Pool looked lovely but didn't have a chance to use it.
The motel is about 2-1/2 -3 long blocks from the Strip, but convenient nonetheless.
We ate at the Peppermill, Denny's, and McDonalds, all within a block of each other once you reach the Strip.
We took a Grayline "City Deluxe/Red Rock Canyon" tour that picked us up at Circus Circus on the Strip - about a 4 block walk, not bad. The tour was wonderful, by the way. I recommend it.
We were there 2 nights, then went from "the ridiculous to the sublime" - see my review of MGM Grand.
The Deuce bus goes up and down the Strip and you can get a 24-hour pass for $5. What a bargain! Saved a lot of walking.
Overall, this 40+ hotel shows it's age, has no amenities (except a nice pool and a laundry room), but is convenient, clean, and we would stay there again when we want a place to crash while we're doing sightseeing/gambling on the Strip, etc.
Also, our room had a balcony overlooking the side parking lot, and was surprisingly quiet.
It seemed like we were staying at a very different hotel from the one some people have written about. I guess we were among the lucky ones - except at slots!!
