We went to Vegas for a friends birthday without realizing it was Nascar weekend and the start of March madness or something....so all of our normal hotel choices on the strip were 3-4 times the normal amount! Well, because I refuse to pay $150 to stay at the Luxor or Excalibur, so I did a little research and found this little motel. We chose it for a couple of reasons, 1. because our friends were staying at the Mandalay Bay and this was directly across the street, and 2. because it was only $50 a night, and 3. because we're in Vegas and we don't plan to spend much time in our rooms.
Check-in: you check it at the little convenience store, it was easy and quick. They give you your key (yes, an actual KEY, lol) and the remote to the t.v., which was kind of funny.
Rooms: decent sized, pretty worn/run down, but the beds were clean and the doors locked. There was only one small bar of soap in the entire room and no other amenities like shampoo, etc. The towels were old and worn, but appeared clean. The walls are pretty thin, so you can just about everything going on outside, but it didn't bother us too much. The age of the hotel is very apparent, but it really served its overall purpose and it is in a pretty good location. The store at the front is nice, you can buy beer, sodas, snacks, etc. and it's reasonably priced and open 24/7. There is a Subway, Wenchell's donuts, pizza place and McDonalds right next door as well, and they are all 24/7, so it made getting drunk munchies very convenient.
Staff: they all seemed friendly enough, a couple of them honestly scared me at first, but they were very nice.
My overall opinion is this:
I would stay here again if there were no other options at a reasonable price. I wouldn't feel comfortable staying there with children, personally. The location is ok and some of the conveniences are nice, so if you need somewhere toward the south end of the strip and there are no other reasonable prices, go for it.
