Perfect location

The only complain is the quaility of the coffee served with the Continental breakfast. It comes from a machine. But location, services and cleanliness it's just perfect.

It's ok. Nothing to write home about.

The first room i had did not close and they had to change my room. The floors were gross. They had a lot of stains so i don't recommend walking barefooted.

Quaint and cozy

Of the least expensive places to stay, this is probable one of the nicest. Keep in mind, it's an inn and not a hotel so dont choose here if you plan to stay in your room all the time. I got by since I was out most of the trip. Pretty good location; walking distance to many shops and restaurants. It's not the Marriot but its not bad either.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Places to eat in virtually every direction; 2-3 blocks in front of the hotel is Ponderosa, Church's, and Pizza Hut. To the rear are some sushi bars and snack shops. Just beyond these is a major street that the Marriot is on which contains many different types of restaurants and night clubs. Also the Walgreens on the corner is a great place to stock up on snacks and drinks for the room since it has a refrigerator

Quality Inn

It was good for the price. Convenient to the highway. Parking was terrible. It is shared with a busy Sushi Restaurant and it is at a busy corner where the road merges with highway traffic on/off.

Fair Hotel for the Price

Stayed for three days for medical purposes. Unfortunately, my floor was very noisy with children loudly crying in the night for extended periods of time. The AC made a very loud humming sound and the remote for the TV was not working. Compared to other trips this was not one of my best.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Walking to the Ashford Medical would only take about 15 minutes; great way to see what El Condado area offers on that side of the strip.

Nice location, nice price!

I was just looking for some quiet place to rest for a few days. Hotel is quiet and peaceful. Staff is very attentive and courteous. Internet connection wasn't available on my room, but i was offer other alternatives. Furniture and carpets show some wearing. The location was great, close to many entertainment and dinner places and also close to a main highway. It's not as luxury as other hotels I have being in, but it is nice for the price.
