We decided to go to Disneyland for President's Day weekend and spend a day or two in Vegas. After having a horrible stay at the Comfort Inn Maingate Anaheim (see review) we decided not to spend another night in Anaheim and just be on our way to Vegas after we left Disneyland at about 10:30 pm. I knew the drive was not that long so I thought I could do it. Unfortunately, I forgot I had to abruptly leave our hotel above at 6:30am and then was at DL all day so I was more tired than I thought. As I was driving, my eyes were getting a little wobbly so I decided to pull over and just get a room and finish the drive in the morning. After passing a few low budget hotels, I saw the Holiday Inn Express and Suites from the freeway. Pulled in and boy was it freezing when I got out the car. The girl at the desk 1st told me one price and I said, that is too high so she lowered to a great rate (whoo hoo!). After checking in, she told me there was juice and cookies and to help myself. Everything was so clean, warm and nice (I am use to this but not in the desert on the way to Vegas lol). I woke up my son and he was happy, of course, to see warm chocolate cookies and juice waiting for him. When we entered our room, we were excited to find a wonderful decorated room with a very nice size bathroom. We had a view of the pool which looked very inviting but the weather? Anyway, while looking out the window, I noticed the outlet mall next to the hotel and all I could think was "charge" - whoo hoo!
We had a wonderful well deserved night sleep because the beds were super great. We headed down to breakfast to find they had a great selection of FRESH breakfast items, hot and cold, and ready to eat (bacon, eggs, potatoes, toast, muffins, donuts, cereal, fruit, juice, sausage patties, etc yummy yummy yummy). This was much better than dennys or ihop and for free (no extra resort charges, etc). We went back to our room and while getting dressed, noticed I lost my toothbrush, called down and they brought us several up with no questions. We got dressed and I was sure to fill out a "how did we do" card before departure. Whenever we are in the area again, I will definitely stay here and recommend to others.
Thank you for the pleasant stay :-)
