It was just my friend and I (both females) that stayed here. It's sandwiched between two Motel 6's, and the people staying at those motels were kinda shady. On our walks to and from we were often "harassed" ('hey ladies where ya going?') by drunk men driving or walking by. One night we were being followed home so we ducked into Coco's restaurant for awhile so that they didn't try and force themselves into our room. I would not stay there again if I didn't have a male with me. We had to make sure no one was watching or following us every time we entered our room so that no one knew where we were staying, just to be safe. There are some rent-a-cops who piddle by every now and again but they aren't too scary-looking driving golfcarts.
For quality comparison, it's about equal to staying in a Motel 6 or a Super 8, so if you don't mind staying in one of those rooms, you won't mind staying in one of these rooms. I found this place to be a bit cleaner than most of the Motel 6/Super 8's I've stayed in though. It's a great location. It's on the nicer end of the strip by MGM Grand and NYNY. Maybe a 5 minute walk to MGM?
The staff was very friendly, they let us check in WAY early (we arrived at 7 a.m. and were exhausted from traveling all night) because they luckily had our room clean and ready already. They also will call you a cab. We had a run-in with a jerk cabdriver who was trying to charge us almost $30 to take us to MGM because 'it cost him that much to put his taxi on the road and we could walk there in five minutes' (we were in high heels and it was late so we didn't wanna walk). He drove away when we refused to pay that ridiculous price for less than a mile, and the lady at the front desk was quite irritated at the driver and apologized and called us a new one who was much happier.
If you're just planning on sleeping, showering and changing there (which you should - you're in Vegas!) then it's good for it's price. If I had the extra money I would stay at MGM. Ladies - be careful, don't stay here without a guy.
*Note* The pictures are from after a few days of being there, the messiness is our own fault. =)
