Recent guest reviews

They only provided me with a half roll of toilet paper on my 1st day and the wifi never workerd.

Front desk agent that help me to check in and check out were excellents

It's an inexpensive hotel right by the Vegas strip. It's a little old, a little out of repair, but how much time do you spend in your hotel room while in Vegas anyways. Easy walk to MGM, Hooters, and Tropicana.

Little noisy sometimes otherwise good option if you don't spend a lot of time inside

nice friendly staff double book same night and they kindly refunded my money quickly and hasslefree thanks awesome and friendly people very nice renovated rooms

The hotel needs renovations, the room was smelly. The personnel could be a bit friendly.

I was itchy from sleeping on the bed. Front desk service was dry. Visible hairs on bathroom and sink upon check-in. Bed felt not clean and not comfortable. My key also stopped working halfway through my stay.

We got a vacation package so the price was good. Pro: Clean room Staff is nice and accommodating Location is walking distance from the Las Vegas strip Surrounding area is fairly safe Free WifI Cons: Street is extremely busy, exiting is a problem since it is main route to airport Rooms are a little small Walls are thin Limited TV channels, however they offer Showtime and HBO

The toilet was broken. The walkways were a death trap. The room was very small. It was dated. There was a security guard that smelled like a skunk

Older hotel. Very quiet. Great location. Short walk to The Strip.

Clean, stuff is nice, quiet, bed and pillows comfortable.

Muy Chivas las camas tuvimos q dormir separados por q no cambiamos

The room seen on the internet looked better than the actual room. The sheets and towels smelled pretty bad, like old body sweats. Either cheap detergent was used to wash or not enough detergent was used. Loud noisy footsteps and people on the upstairs room sounded like they were going to fall down into ours. Cleaning maid doesn't come until after 2pm. There is no iron anywhere or enough towels. this room was supposed to be remodeled but I believe they haven't touched it since 1950.

Horrible location. Blood stains on mattress and hotel staff was rude and couldn't speak English. Didn't want to give us any money back for the stay and didn't want to change the mattress until I made a huge deal about it.

Renovated rooms, comfortable beds, provides all the basic needs without the luxury and "resort fees" of so many other Vegas hotels

The location is great but the hotel itself is so so.

Great place to stay if you plan on lots of partying, just need a bed to crawl into at 4am, and want to save your cash for the craps table. Not ideal if you're looking for a long luxurious relaxing stay. The nights were a bit busy, but we got the rooms right under the stairs and next to ice machine. They have a pool which is a must in the vegas heat. No real issues. Walk to the strip is about 10-15 minutes. I love that you get Coco's right next to you which is funny to go to breakfast and gawk at all the hungover people.

Don't expect perfection, but it was a great deal for the price. Easy walking distance to the Hooters Casino, MGM, Tropicana, NYNY and Excalibur. From the bigger Casinos, there's easy shuttles and taxis, or just walk The Strip. The room was clean, but don't expect perfect. Hot water and clean towels and a bed. About all you need! The toilet was abit "child sized? Bring your own towels if you're afraid of a stain that won't come out of white towels. The walls can be abit thin if you think people walking by, kids running by, or noises from other rooms will disturb you. But really, how much time do you plan to spend in the motel room?

It served its purpose. Close to airport. Easy taxi ride.

I enjoy walking on the strip in the evenings. From this hotel you can easily walk across the street and enter MGM's lobby with access to the strip. Also, MGM has a stop for the monorail which the entrance is a 5 min walk from the hotel. The hotel doesnt have slots or card games. But a few building over is hooters where you have easy access to games. Hotel staff was nice and the room was clean. Maid service every day. The beds where comfortable. The hotel is close to the airport which I was worried would have alot of noise. But, it wasnt to bad. a little noise in the early morning. Only downfall was the A/C made alot of noise. I ended up getting ear plugs the second night. Defiantly would stay here again.
