Friendly staff. Good downtown location. Rates are kind of high ($99/night) for the condition of the property but I guess that's now the going rate due to the Paradise town fires.

This was a terrible property and if there was less than one star I would give it.

This was the most disgusting hotel I have ever been in. There were literally 2 huge holes cut in the bathroom ceiling, a brownish red substance on the remote, dirt on the walls, the list goes on. After 5 minutes in the room I walked back to the front office with my kids and told the woman working there (who was the only positive thing about this hotel) that we couldn’t stay there. It did not feel safe for a number of other reasons. She totally understood and said it happens all of the time. I had already paid for the room through Travelocity. I contacted Travelocity right away and am working on getting a refund.

I made a reservation and when I showed up I was told I didn't have one. staff told me I had to contact Travelocity but when Travelocity got back to me they said hotel staff said I was a no-show and I wouldn't get a refund. STAY AWAY! COMPLETE FRAUD!!!
