We stayed here for one night and got a double room. When I tried to log in to the wifi it wouldn't log me on. I called they said there was a password but it's not a secured network so there was no where to enter it, they were not very helpful in trying to get it resolved. There was...

We are sorry that you experience difficulties with the WiFi service during your stay. We are proud to have just completed a substantial upgrade to our system, which included more than doubling the available bandwidth, replacing all of the access points and adding three new gigabit switches. We are sorry that these enhancements were not in place at the time...

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...

It was my second time here. The hotel is simple and basic, but rates can be very low, especially if booked in advanced, I spent 300 for 6 nights and in Vegas minutes walking form the convention center is good value for money.

My vehicle was broken into and incurred $5,000 in damages. I wasn't notified until hours after the break-in happened. We have a car alarm and the hotel advertises security cameras and security guards, yet the thief had plenty of time to rifle through my van and take what they wanted. General manager was rude and dishonest. Even accused me of...
