We stayed at what we called it "Desert Hell Motel" for 1 night when we were looking for a cheap room as part of our visit to the Life is Beautiful Festival in Downtown.
We were under the impression it was just under a mile to the El Cortez Hotel but even being a fast walker it took me 30 mins and it was slightly uphill.
The room was very basic and to be honest it was shocking but as soon as I put my head on the pillow then I noticed that we had a number of crickets in the room which was disgusting.
The road up to downtown is very dodgy and I wouldn't walk it unless I was in a group of people.
The lady on reception was very nice but we could have easily booked into a motel closer and of better quality for the price we paid for it.
I would NOT recommend this place and the 1 star is for the nice older lady on reception who tried her best.
