The price was good and the rooms are huge. But there is no microwave or water fountains. The airport shuttle do not run 24/7 and only starts at 7am, so I needed to book an uber for myself. Wifi logs out intermittently and you'll need to relogin everytime. That's annoying.

You get what you pay for at this hotel (which is actually a motel style). I only stayed here because my in-laws had booked it and wanted us to stay where they were staying.

You get what you pay for at this hotel (which is actually a motel style). I only stayed here because my in-laws had booked it and wanted us to stay where they were staying. My husband and I were supposed to stay for 3 nights but checked out after the first night. They don’t accept cash payments for the room, half the electrical outlets in our room didn’t work, there were stains (!!) on the towels, no coffee maker or microwave and worse of all we woke up at 6:30am to our bathroom flooding from the upstairs shower. I’ll post photos but basically we were woken up by the sound of water. We walked into the bathroom to find a hole in the ceiling and a very steady stream of water flowing down the shower and flooding the floor. It’s clear from the water damage in the ceiling that this is not a new leak. I would be worried about mold and the structural integrity of the ceiling. My husband went to the front desk to ask for our money back and to check out. Fortunately they agreed and we got a full refund. We gathered our things, got an amazing last minute deal at a really nice hotel on the strip (for only $10 more per night than the Mardi Gras I might add) and left. I would caution anyone planning on staying here. If you do decide to take your chances and stay here do not stay in room 2168! Read less

We stayed here overnight on a trip to California. It was adequate for a night. I would not stay here for more than one night however. The place is old and there was no coffee in the room. The only coffee was at the bar. The casino is tiny and not very appealing.

Wasn't expecting much at these prices, but needed to be close to LVCC. Room was large, king bed and a separate sitting area. The lounge had decent bar-type food, but was right next to the small casino area, so of course smoke was everywhere. Pool looked very nice and was getting plenty of use all day long. Staff was very helpful, the shuttle… Read more

Staff was very helpful, the shuttle to/from airport was handy and on time both ways. All-in-all, unless it's on someone else's dime, I'd stay there again Read less

This "hotel", which my friend and I agreed felt more like a motel, was fine but I wouldn't stay here again. The reason we booked was because it was cheap and we got what we paid for, but I'd recommend spending a bit more and finding somewhere nicer. The rooms are very old and tired looking: they look pretty nice in the photos but don't look so… Read more
This "hotel", which my friend and I agreed felt more like a motel, was fine but I wouldn't stay here again. The reason we booked was because it was cheap and we got what we paid for, but I'd recommend spending a bit more and finding somewhere nicer. The rooms are very old and tired looking: they look pretty nice in the photos but don't look so great in reality. We stayed in June and the temp hit around 35 degrees so it was very hot in the room, luckily there was ac! We had a room with two beds. The bathroom sink wasn't in the bathroom but was located outside it, which was a pain for me who was sleeping in the bed next to it! There was a fridge in our room...at least, we thought it was a fridge but even with the temperature turned all the way down it was still freezing anything we put in there so I'm not sure whether it was actually a freezer, but if it was why would you opt for a freezer over a fridge? It doesn't make sense. There's a shuttle on the hour, every hour up until 10pm which takes you from the hotel to Ballys. It also brings you back at quarter past the hour, every hour up until 10:15pm. There was only one day when the shuttle didn't show up, but I think that was more down to the traffic than anything else. There's a breakfast buffet for $10 which was okay. I'm a vegetarian so choice was very limited. The buffet offers toast, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, sausages, potatoes, some creamy sauce thing which I didn't try as it looked disgusting and probably wasn't veggie, fruit, waffles, cakes, tea, coffee and fruit juice. The hotel is located off the strip and since it was so hot during our stay we relied on the shuttle/uber's to take us to and from the strip which worked out pretty expensive (the shuttle is free). The hotel staff were a mixed bunch. The reception staff were rude and didn't care. The bar staff were lovely! The breakfast staff and housekeeping were friendly. Security staff were nice enough but also looked bored and over it. The hotel has a tiny casino with a few slot machines but nothing else. There's a small pool but we didn't use it. Overall the hotel was fine and served its purpose but next time I'll spend a bit more money and stay closer to the strip. Read less
