Pros: It's easy to get to. You are walking distance from Fremont Street. We used the valet parking. Attendants were marvelous.
Cons: The room could be quite a bit cleaner.
Location: Fremont street, other casinos
Let me start by saying you get what you pay for. We spent just over $100 a night for our room. This was a great rate considering the basketball tournament and Nascar were in town. The bedding and towels were clean. Shower head leaked onto bathroom floor. The floor of entire room was quite filthy. Trash was left in corners. Grout in bathroom was black. Corners in bathroom were gross. We spent very little time in the room, so we managed. If you are a germaphobe, you will not want to stay here.

Very nice hotel. Close to airport

Pros: The $10.00 voucher, the joining room and the security box.
Cons: Nothing. Everything was good.
Location: The location was downtown Vegas and was beautiful for just sight seeing. The food was good and at a very reasonable price. There was a lot of shops.
My experience was great. The hotel gave us $10.00 vouchers for us to use each day for food and beverage. They served a real food breakfast at the hotel so we was able to use these vouchers for this and it was more than enough. The itself was large with joining doors which is good if you are traveling with someone else because you can be together when you want or you can have your privacy. I would stay here again if opportunity presented itself.

Excellent Value

Pros: Since the hotel was the cheapest in Las Vegas, I was not expecting much of the hotel. .However, I was pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious, c
Cons: Since it is located In downtown Las Vegas, you need a car to get to the Las Vegas strip.
Location: Near the Fremont Street Experience. Multiple casinos located nearby.
Attended a convention in Las Vegas. Because I was paying for this out of pocket, I was looking for a cheap hotel. This hotel was the cheapest,

Inexpensive place to stay close to design market

First impression- the parking garage needed a good power wash. Woman that checked me in was efficient but not very happy to be there. The room was very clean, and the bed was comfy. Wallpaper coming off of walls at seams, and fairly new carpet pretty stained. Had a very nice dinner at the Noodle Bowl! Short walk to get the shuttle to market then a quick ride. Check out was all business; no pleasantries at all.
