Yikes.

It was within walking distance to the main Virginia St strip of nicer places, but it was a motel straight out of the 60s or 70s. Definitely did not feel like the safest of places. For like 20 bucks more or even 30 bucks more, I would've rather stayed at a nicer place. It was very old and run down looking inside the room and out.

orbitz survice charge is awful

It was okay

It was good we got a room after quit a wait at the front desk. While waiting we over heard how much cheaper the customers room was compared to our ORBITZ price. Really disappointed when explained that orbitz charges more than if we made the reservation ourselves. The walk to the strip is so short.

No Pets PLEASE!

The Desert Rose Inn staff was very friendly and nice when we checked in. When we walked into the lobby there were signs saying that pets were allowed with a $50 deposit. My wife is VERY ALLERGIC TO PETS. After we had been in the hotel room for less than 10 minutes, my wife's pet sensitivies kicked in and we left the hotel to have dinner. We stayed out of the room until 2:30 AM because my wife didn't want to go back both for health reasons and we didn't really feel safe there. My wife had a horrible headache and upset stomach for two days after we left the hotel and it really put a damper on the first vacation we've had in 7 years! There was also no iron, ironing board, breakfast, no restaurant nearby. We were forced to check out after one night and the management was very nice about letting us go without charging us for the second night, but label us very dissastified customers.
