We're not really fans of Vegas, but I was attending a conference for work and decided it was worth going early in order to explore the desert areas around the city. Our choice of Eastside Cannery was thus driven not by its gambling attributes (about which I really can't comment) or in-house dining but by the great rate being offered to AAA guests and its proximity to Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, and points elsewhere. With those caveats...
It is a clean, modern property, with ample parking (at least for March). We had a bit of hassle about the room, however: it was booked as 'wheelchair accessible' -- and so it was, with a good roll-in shower and good access around the loo and sink -- but the beds were 29" high. That's almost tabletop height, and almost impossible to vault into from a wheelchair seat at 24". The first impulse at the front desk was truly jobs-worth: both the desk clerk and her supervisor said: oh no, we can't disassemble the bed, it's bolted to the wall, it's a lot of work, it's unsafe. Nonetheless, we asked them to send up maintenance, cos I'd already checked and found the frame beneath the box/mattress combo was lightweight and easy to move...
The maintenance supervisor and his partner had the frame out and the box spring on solid ground in, oh, two minutes; they gave us the impression they are asked to do this pretty frequently. I went back downstairs and told the front desk face-to-face about this, and believe me, I'm pretty darn sure they immediately rushed off to not make a note about it...
Still. The room was quiet, the blackout curtains worked well, housekeeping was thorough and unobtrusive. It was a 20-minute drive to the gateway into the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, from which we could easily visit Red Rock SP, Hoover Dam, and points south to Laughlin. It's next door to Sam's Town, and the excellent Billy Bob's Steakhouse; the equally excellent Sushi-Twister is in the Albertson's shopping center equidistant the other way, next door to a Starbucks. We had an acceptable dinner in the hotel's buffet the night we arrived but couldn't work up a lot of enthusiasm for it or the meagre wine list. (Avoid the steam table stuff and stick to the baked dishes, pizza and carvery roasts.) The casual dining room produced a tasty breakfast that lasted us until dinnertime.
