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.

average hotel

this hotel has been going through major renovations now for quite some time. inside and outside. they still need a bit to go. our original room had water damage in it and was still leaking from the sprinkler system. we were moved, which was nice...and our new room didn't have any problems. but you can tell the renovation job isn't the best. a few other folks were complaining about issues with their rooms as well. but for the cheap price, you can't expect much anyway.

Renovations

Start with the good - The hotel staff and the shuttle drivers are very friendly and very helpful! The bad - The vending machines were not stocked. The bar AND restaurant were not open. The pool was not open. We did not have full sized pillows on our bed (they were 18" square pillows - making for a semi-uncomfortable night). The hotel did shift change right at check-in time with a lobby full of guests waiting to check in. The ugly - My husband and I only had one towel and one hand towel when we walked in the room. We called and requested more and were told they would be right up. 2 hours later, we requested them again at the front desk and were told "they are in the wash". Ummmm ok. Will not be staying here again, even though the shuttle is very convenient.

Get what you pay for

You get what you pay for. I read a lot of negative reviews for this hotel. This was my first time to stay here and for the price it was what I expected. Nice and clean but nothing special. Right by the mud bug festival and I will stay here again next year. I did not see any bugs or dirty room.
