Small but in a Nice Location!

Its a small hotel but in a perfect location. My room was clean and the CS Rep was great. The only problem was parking but they give a parking pass to park on the street so they wont towed your car.

location was good

The location was in a nice area. Close to the beach and restaurant, front desk was very helpful. The thing I didn't like was the maid service, they took to long to clean the room and I couldn't control the air condition, it stood on high. For the price of the hotel, I guess that's what you pay for

close to the strip

This hotel was close to all restaurants the strip and beach the only thing was one day they had no towels I asked and was toll all were dirty and that the 2 cleaning ladies had a conflict so the one on my floor couldn't ask the other room had no refrigerator I was supposed to have a queen bed ended up with 2 double beds ice machine was on 2nd floor with vending machine but I was on the 4th very inconvenient, if I was staying one night maybe this would be the right spot.

1 night stay

Stayed here for a night due to long hours layovers. It's near to the airport, free wi-fi, shower, staff is friendly and it's just what I am looking for. Will come back again next time.

Disappointing end to a great vacation

This hotel was old, falling apart, holes in the walls, chipped paint, roaches, odorous elevator, cheap locks on doors, and just an all around bad experience. My husband and I had to disinfect and exterminate before being able to stay in the room. We slept with our clothes on. Our request for a ferund was denied but the offer to exchange the room proved to be a further disappointment as the alterantive room was in worst condition. We say run for the hills, stay at your own risk. The on-line pictures are extremely misleading, it may have looked like that 20 years ago

Not worth the money

The reception staff were nice and changed my 1st room after the 1st day. The 1st room had no phone, so I could not contact that group I was with (in another hotel). Also there was no place to hang up clothes, even really really short tops. The 2nd room was on the 5th floor, and the elevator door would not close easily. It was quicker to use the stairs. I could hang up jackets and shirts, I had a phone & tv, and shelves in the bathroom. My room was only cleaned 2 days out of the 6 days in the 2nd room. I was gone at least 6 hrs each day, and often said goodbye to the maids as I left and put the clean room sign out. I kept my used towels in a drying position on the shower rail. Last day I put my trash outside, and that was the 2nd time the room was cleaned & bed made. Music blaring right outside on Sat night until 2:30pm, as part of the hotel's food Sat night patio deal. Even ear plugs didn't kill the constant boom-boom. All the receptionists were very nice and had fluent English. Would have been ok for $40 or $50 a night. Place WAS clean, except for my room.
