Close to Convention Center Posted Nov 26, 2011
This is an older motel, but it is close to the convention centre, so it is purpose built and handy for me to stay here. There are not many restaurants nearby, so you either eat here or wander for food. The Internet service was annoyingly spotty and we had to frequently request that they reboot their load balancer and router, at least once a day, sometimes more. Free or not, this really needs fixing, and a few of the front desk staff were not all that friendly about having to do this (some were). The staff serviced the rooms every day and were friendly and efficient. However, when booking in the first night, I asked for a quiet room with good WiFi. I got neither. I was placed in an outside room, over the parking lot, and its traffic noise was noticeable, even near the back. An inner court room should be more quiet. As with many older motels, you can hear your neighours when it is quiet, so pray they don't snore. They have a few slot machines, but I wasn't there for that. The buffet breakfast was a reasonable price and reasonably healthy, but I didn't get to eat in their front restaurant. Be careful about using the 108 buses out front. Service was spotty, at best. If you want to go to the strip, walk up to the Convention Center and get a big gold bus, instead of driving. I hope to return next year and, for now, will plan on staying here again.
