Hey travel-family, took my family on a weekend getaway and found this deal on Groupon. Well it was very disappointing to say the least. This so-called hotel, looks like a motel, and from the look at the pictures I saw, i was deceived about the size of this "casino". It maybe has 20-30 machines. There is a large mirror on...

we needed a hotel for our first two nights in the US after a late night arrival. It was so cheap but you don't get more than what you pay for. In short: it's clean and everything you need is in the room. Equipment and everything is basic, no luxury but it's warm, quiet and you are close to the...

We were in Las Vegas on New Years Eve, ready to leave, and at the last minute decided to stay the night. We started searching for hotels, and found the Mardi Gras. I was expecting a real hotel/casino, but what I found was a motel with a couple slot machines in a smoke filled room. Staff was standoffish, the crowd...

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. We recognize that you have many options when selecting a hotel in Las Vegas. Although, perhaps not last-minute on New Year's Eve. We hope that the next time you visit you will select a hotel that ideally suits your needs and budget. Best wishes for a prosperous 2017.

We were in the lobby using the business center computer while Eddie was on shift. He was super helpful in getting us logged in but best of all he was funny and treated us like friends of his. Always appreciated. The wifi situation leaves a bit to be desired but only staying one night it didn't bother us too much.

While we fully intended to travel "budget", this place was cheap. There is a large difference between affordable accomodations and this cheap flea motel. The only positive is it is located off the strip in close proximity to the Convention Center and Monorail station, which is convenient to travel up and down the east side of the strip and walk...

We just stayed here and the service was incredible. All the employees were extremely nice and friendly. Two in particular were Eddie, along with the girls at the front desk, who helped us check in early since we were both dead from the flight. Tim C was an amazing bartender. Food and drinks were great, reasonably priced and the servings...

If you're looking for a fancy hotel, keep on looking - but if you're searching for an affordable, no-nonsense room not too far from all the sins Vegas has to offer, then you're in the right place. Certainly, it has its disadvantages. The carpet in our room was so dirty that we avoided walking around barefoot, the elevator made alarmingly...

Every hotel in Vegas charges a resort fee and I am not sure what it was for. I wasted a lot of time searching the net for the best deal simply because they do not show their resort fees upfront. After spending some time plowing through the net, I came to the conclusion this hotel had the best deal. The...
