This is a very reasonably priced hotel in an area quite away from the 'strip'. It's a good 10-15 minute taxi trip to that area so it's probably not the best place if you are looking for nightlife.
Having been in October, we found it quite empty with one poor, over-stretched waiter doing everything from serving your evening drink in the somewhat, cafetaria-esque bar to serving your breakfast the next morning.
If you are looking for a quieter vacation then there are a few restaurants and a supermarket within walking distance.
Our only gripe, but not one which warranted a complaint, was that we were given a room at the back of the hotel which didn't catch much sun. As a result the atmosphere felt a little damp - so a suggestion for the hotel is that when they are underbooked in the colder months that they ensure people are given rooms facing the sun.
