Clean hotel in a convenient location

Nice spacious and clean rooms. Friendly and accomodating staff. Only inconvenience was that cleaning crew came to work at neighboring Applebees after midnight which made sleeping impossible for almost 1 hour.

Superb - a great find!

This is the kind of place you hope to find at the end of a long day on the road. A quick, courteous check-in, and a cool, quiet, comfortable room that looked like it could have been furnished by Ikea. No hitches and no glitches. An additional bonus is that the Inn is located within easy walking distance of the major gaming resorts, and there are several eateries (fast food as well as full sitdown) within 2 blocks. There is also a major grocery store located across the highway (has a great deli). What more do you need? Would definitely stay there again.

Mixed feelings....

A motel that's been remodeled and decorated beautifully. Has hardwood floor, powerful shower, fridge in room, feels clean, new, and even a little bit artsy. Close to Heavenly gondola (around 8 minutes walk). And the staff was the nicest I have ever met. HOWEVER, the hardwood floor has its downside - it's incredibly noisy if you stayed on first floor and the guy (even worse, lady with pumps) above you kept walking. And the wireless internet didn't work in room (staff said they were gonna fix it in a week). No coffeemaker in room, though not a big deal for me.

NIce little hotel

I had no expectations, but was pleasantly surprised by the room I received. Yes, there's the odd Rolling Stones & Bob Marley art on the walkway, but that adds to the charm. Flat screen in room, clean, heat worked well. Short walk to the casinos, if you are into that. Nice shopping center across street for all the things you might need while staying. No complaints.

Great Value!

Nice hotel at a great location. They are located walking distance to the casinos and are close to many shops, restaurants, and bars. The staff was very helpful and made good recomendations on places to check out. Room looked like it had been updated recently with hardwood floors and marble shower. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Perfect, easy getaway!

The perfect location. I was able to stay with my dog. We walked everywhere. We took evening walks down to the lake to watch the sunset. The room had free internet and a HUGE TV. The fridge was college size which was perfect.
