Reviewed July 3, 2005

I have recently stayed at this place over the july long weekend. I will never stay there again. The rooms were not overly spacious or comfortable. The movies were outdated and did not work often. The so called continental breakfast was a joke of old oranges and a couple apples. The toast and bagels did not even come with cream cheese. No coffee supplied in the rooms and the shower kept changing tempature such that we had to be careful not to get burned. The pool was virtually unusable as the tempature was so cold even the kids could barely stand it for more then a few minutes(we went to 2 local lakes and they were able to stay in that water for more then an hour without compliant) and no adults braved the frigid waters. When we asked about possibly increasing the temp to a suitable level we were rebuffed impolitely.

I have stayed in literally hundreds of accomadations over the last 20 years and this was one of the most unpleasant experiences we have had. my children began calling it hobo hotel and I could not help but agree. For the price asked by the owners I would have preferred to have gone to another place and will next time we go for a visit. My suggestion is its fair value was closer to $60 per night for this place. Certainly worth paying even 10% more than the 110$ charged to get the appropriate accomadations and services.

We enjoyed our stay at the Nomad. The free movies were great. It was quiet even though on the strip and was within walking distance of everything. Our only problem was the placement of the toilet! It faced sideways. If you sat, your legs were under the sink and "standing" members of the family had to go from the side as there was no room to stand at the front. The youngest male member of the family found "hitting the target" somewhat difficult. I'm unsure if this was something peculiar to our room.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Nomad Motel. The free movies for the rooms were a great perk. We found our stay relaxing, quiet and very comfortable. Very clean.

We were not happy with our stay. Our room was dark and not very clean, and at about midnight, little bugs started appearing on the wall and ceiling above the bed! There were dozens of them landing on the bed and after killing tons, I'd had enough. We called the manager, who after a bit of discussion, agreed to put us in another next door. That room, although larger, was also kind of run-down and dingy. While the hotel looked okay from the outside, and the price was affordable, the bugs, decor, and atmosphere were not appreciated!

Owners were pleasant, very helpful, an absolute delight during our travelling. Would loved to have had their motel at every stop during our trip. The rooms were clean, attractive, very serviceable kitchenette set-up. We were so delighted we plan to return next summer..... people such as these should be shown acknowledgment for their great customer relations. Strongly recommended!

A great place to stay and the owners customer service was better than 5 star hotels I have stayed in!. Very family oriented with big suites, and kitchens to save you money on those travels with teenagers.
