Stayed here three nights. Place is older but seems to be fairly well maintained. Rooms are big with separate living area, kitchen (fridge and sink only), bathroom, and sleeping area. Furnishings are a bit tired but functional. Bed was comfortable. Carpet is worn and needs to be replaced. Bathroom was very clean. TV channels are limited but who wants to... More

Stayed for one night only. No doubt the room size was big with partition. Two double beds were provided. Bathroom size was very small with washbasin outside the bathroom. Basic amenities like microwave oven, tea/coffee facility were not available. A.C. was not working for which had to request the front desk. Had requested for replacement of non-working table lamp and... More

We had a huge room, smoking. It was a really great value. Breakfast was not included but the hotel has an all you can eat breakfast for $8.95 plus tax. Compared to prices on the strip it is really good. Free shuttle service to and from the airport and the strip. Very friendly personell. We would stay there again!

Was apprehensive when I booked this room for a trade show, but was very happy with it.

If you are looking to stay close to the Las Vegas Strip but not on it, then this is a good choice. They have a shuttle bus that will drop you at the strip at night and pick you back up and take you back to the hotel. The whole hotel is very dated though and shows signs of wear... More

The bed was like a cloud, the room was spacious and always clean. Hotel has its shuffle bus to the Strip, but its also close to Monorail. Staff is extremely helpful, friendly and nice. Pool is great in the hot weather.

The hotel location is good, on Paradise Rd and Sands, just a 3 min drive from the Wynn, the Palazzo and the strip. Note though that other than the Convention Center and a 7-11, there's nothing else in the immediate vicinity. The hotel itself leaves a lot to be desired. I mean if this is what $50-$55 buys in Vegas,... More
