I know this sounds too bad to be real, but I promise it is... There were pictures of a different hotel on Orbitz, so I booked it. (They later changed the pictures) They advertised wireless Internet, but not that you had to go to the hotel office to use it -- no Internet in the rooms. My room smelled, had... More

They have a beautiful pool and courtyard and it's just a quick walk to the Waffle House and a little longer walk to Red Lobster. Very close to the beach and the Strip. I will stay there again and I will... More
