Trains

Hotel was recently bought by Holiday Inn, and is currently in the process of being renovated. However, no amount of renovations will get rid of the train tracks which bend around the hotel. About every hour a train goes by, horn blasting, and breaks squealing. The hotel is also in the process of switching to Direct TV, but currently only has 10 non-HD channels, and the internet connection is currently really SLOW! Not sure if my room was renovated already, but it smells like smoke, and has white paint splattered on all the furniture.

family getaway

Had a great time the hotel is under renovations but still nice. The location is very good for easily getting to any location for food, fun and shopping! The only downside was the trains blaring horns during the night.Will stay again but will request a room on the other side of the hotel.

work location

Hotel is still under renovation but it is getting better. Rooms are nice, WiFi is spotty at best. Room cleaning crew needs attention to detail as my room wasn't restocked with towels for a couple days (but you have a couple in there).

good value for hotel/location

Good value, good amenities, so so cleanliness because its inconsistent. Bar is good except they run out of things and don't restock everyday. Food is good. Ongoing construction can be a pain. Elevator needs help! It works, just needs service/update.

home while working

Hotel isn't bad but undergoing renovations so can be a little noisy early. Restaurant is not open in evenings, but can get food at bar. Bed is like sleeping on lumpy ground. Bring your own pillows. Good value for cost.

Very Disappointed

Our room smelled. There was a spot for a fridge that was non there. The hotel is located on a railroad tract that runs early and often. The elevator did not work correctly.

Hotel in transition

Getting ready for a re-launch as a Hilton, the Downtown is very nearly ready, and is currently an EXCELLENT value for travelers. The staff is professional and the free shuttle service to airport and casinos is very good. Breakfast is pricy though

Worst Hotel Ever

Located between two train track intersections. Room smelled like death and 40 years of smoking. Roof was falling in. Sheets smelled like the room. Bathroom fixtures were rusting. Staff was nice. You couldn't pay me to stay here again.
