4 nights, 2 people, 2 Q. Clean room, spacious, comfortable beds. Always found parking, rarely heard neighbors, smoke free rooms. Shower head is a bit low, and no mini fridge, short walk to main casino. Would happily stay here again.

Thank you very much for your kind review. Next time you stay with us, call the operator or front desk and ask them for a mini-fridge and someone will bring it over to you or when you book your room with us ask for a room with a mini-fridge. Thank you again!!! More

I have been here many times and this trip found that the high room prices, lousy food and poor game play very disappointing. The pool area was nice.

Very nice and friendly place. The rooms and accommodations were perfect for what we needed. I had to have surgery on the 31st and had booked the room for the night of the 30th only.

I stayed two, two night stays at the CVI in the past month and the place is just solid. It's not the Venetian but for the price it is quite nice.

I was in town for a wedding, this was the best place to stay. Good location. Reasonably clean. Room's window looked into an air conditioning unit and wall. Very smoky in the common areas. A bit overpriced for what you get.

Thank you for your comments. We hope you choose to come back and see us. We are always concerned about the smoke.

Even though the hotel was very busy (they were having a concert that night) the check-in process was smooth and the bell captain helpful and nice. The room was quite large and well-appointed.
