Stayed the night with my wife, niece , and 3 nephews. The kids had their own room. Check in was easy. The rooms were ok. Very large, but could probably use some updating. We walked a few minutes and got ice cream. The town is very nice and safe. It was 110 degrees when we arrived. We went swimming in the very large pool. The concrete around the pool was a little rough and hard to walk on. But the pool was very nice and refreshing. It will be the reason I return to this hotel.

Good location and charming exterior, but my room looked old and shabby with stained carpet and curtains, cracked sink, wallpaper peeling off, etc. Room amenities included microwave (which was dirty) and minifridge. Multiple burnt-out light bulbs. Bed and pillows were reasonably comfortable. No soundproofing - you can hear street traffic and conversations in the next room. Bathroom with everything in working order and good shower pressure. No toiletries other than soap bars. Complimentary wifi (average). Good parking.

We stayed here for the first time with 3 other couples. It’s very close to Lake Mead, like you can be on the water in 15 minutes. The location is great, walk to restaurants. The rooms are very clean and the service is excellent. Easy check in and check out process. The beds are very comfy. We will stay here again.

We stayed here for one night in February 2020. The room was large and clean, beds fine and the bathroom has a powerful shower. Plenty of parking and very close to the town, easily walkable in just a few minutes. The walls are very thin and we had very noisy neighbours until around 4am which spoilt the stay. Generally, it’s a quaint old style motel, but it really needs a face lift.
