We stayed 6 nights here the second week of July and we were very pleased. We had a King room with a Sofa pull out and it was a decent size room. We loved having a fridge and microwave. The fridge is also a larger "small" fridge so we could fit lots of soda, snacks, etc which was important for us since we had 2 adults and kids - 11, 9, 3, and 7 month old. There was also a lot of storage space by the fridge. The bathroom/vanity area was a bit outdated, but it didn't really matter. More importantly - everything was clean and stayed clean. I know in previous reviews they state problems with cleaning staff. My husband was in a conversation with the hotel owner one afternoon and she said they were replacing the cleaning staff that week becuase they were not happy with them. So that may take care of any previous cleaning issues. We actually had no cleaning problems.
The pool was also well maintained and it was great that the kiddie pool is actually built into the larger pool so my 3 yr old could interact with me and the older kids while we swam. There was a second pool that looked nice too but it wasn't near our room.
Another nice bonus was an on-site washer and dryer.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Lastly, it is an excellent location. It's only a block from the main strip on the Aquarium end. It's far enough away from all that congestion and noise, but still close enough to walk to the strip.
This place is not a new and fancy chain or exclusive individual hotel, but it was one of the 5 cheapest I found (and I looked at almost every one!) and considering the number of hotels to pick from this is a good price. (I saw several for the same price range in Pigeon Fordge, but all had reviews of 2!) But more importantly - it's a decent place to stay. Clean, friendly, pool, fridge, good size room, and great location.
