Stayed with a school group and felt less secure here than in other Vegas motels. Anyone could have access to rooms with no gates and little security. However, pool area was nice and large. Staff friendly. Some of our rooms on arrival had people still in them, but this was sorted quickly. Breakfast area was spacious. Rooms a little tired... More

This is an outdated, average property. Having said that, I would stay here again. The reason is the people who work there. Sal at the Front Desk, Maria in Dining, Mil and Rick the shuttle drivers, and Doug the maintenance man. All are service pros who will take great care of you. They have a free shuttle to/from the airport... More

Not a high end hotel at all. I only recommend it for those who are on a liw buget, but the service great, staffs are courteous and the food is descent. There is also slot machines if you are a gambling person.

All about Tim! An asset to any business! Tim works tirelessly from start to finish if he was anything other than human he'd be an octopus. You watch him work and he seems to do a dozen things at once and to a very high standard. Tim is like everyone's long list friend.

It is recognition such as you have offered that makes all of our efforts worthwhile. Please do visit us again soon. More

This hotel was great! Rooms are actually pretty big, clean, and staff is extremely friendly. If you are looking for a good hotel at a good price, this is it. Is also very close to the strip you can walk instead of getting cabs. I will definitely recommend it!

This hotel is very poorly rated but it's not bad at all! The rooms are clean the ac works!! It's NOT the Cesar palace and it's NOT ON THE STRIP! but for the price it perfect. Yes the elevator is brutal and scary but I used the stairs. I would stay there again.

First off, I have to reiterate how lovely the staff is. We stopped here for a cheap place to stay on a long road trip back from camping in Cali. Check-in was a nightmare because the internet went down and the line was out the door already. The gentleman behind the counter was incredibly professional and nice, especially considering the...

We spent 3 nights at Mard Gras Hotel and were not happy.

We booked this as a stopover after flying in before picking up our car the next day. The place is a bit out of the way. The map looks like it's one block from the strip, but don't let Vegas fool you. Everything is five times as big in real life. It took us about half hour or so to... More
