While the recent renovations have the hotel looking very nice, they’ve also failed to mention their lack of certain amenities. For example, there is currently no outdoor pool unless you go to the Travelodge down the street. There is also no available laundry facilities despite it being listed as an amenity online. Since we spent the day tubing in the rivers, we expected to be able to wash our suits and towels at the laundry facilities only to find out they are nonexistent. Breakfast was mediocre at best, we will most likely be eating out for the remainder of her trip. The location is very convenient, with a shortcut path in The Village shopping center. Price was decent, however due to the managements lack of alerting guest to the missing amenities I will most likely not be staying here again. I could’ve stayed at the Sydney James for $30 less and had access to an indoor pool and laundry facilities.

The staff was nice and helpful. The rooms had been remodeled, but they were not great. Things that should have been updated were not touched. People smoking pot out on their porch and it was filtering through our air unit. We had a nice visit, but may stay somewhere else next time. Which is sad because we have stayed with them in the condos they are tearing apart numerous times and loved it.

Quiet, clean, no frills, nice balcony, friendly staff. Good continental breakfast. Some remodeling and no pool currently however you can use neighboring hotel pool. Short walk. If light bothers you coming into window you may want to bring something to put up over their curtain~its not very good at keeping the light out.

For the price I expected a decent place to stay. While the lobby was nice, it wasn’t apparent where the breakfast would be located, since it was a single room in a different building. The rooms, while clean, were stuffy and hot, in poor condition, and the surroundings were ugly and unattractive and we’re literally surrounded by dirt and trash.

Our room was beautiful. The breakfast was like eating rubber. The housekeeper didn’t change our sheets not 1 time and we stayed 4 days. The pool is hard to find. The ice machine is only in 1 location. Great location from the strip. The lady at the front desk was always nice and polite. The breakfast people were the same. The housekeeper was rude and never smiled.
