Good hotel

I read some of the reviews on this hotel and was a little nervous. The facility was clean and not trashy. You get what you pay for and this was a great value for the money. Close to the strip. I didn’t hear other rooms and check in and check out were easy. I’d stay here again

Someplace cheap, just off the Strip.

Pros: Low cost, close to the Strip.
Cons: Internet service was slow, dropped out a lot, but most lower priced hotels are the same, this was worse because it would totally "lose carrier".
Location: Ellis Island for beer and karaoke, a few blocks away, the Strip a bit farther away, it's Vegas...
When I arrived, check in was a breeze, the room was clean and 65F (it was 103F outside). There were no wash cloths or hand towels the first 2 days, I'm sure if I would have asked, they would have brought them. The internet was slow, spotty and would drop out at any time, couldn't even stream a YouTube video at 480 without stalling. Forget about uploading while you're there. You're in Vegas probably for gambling or shows, so you want a cheap, clean, safe place to stay, this fits the bill. I don't watch TV (never turned it on, 32" flat screen) but I watch YT, so I was at a loss for the week. I walk around Vegas a lot (never drive) and see billboards from cable companies that years ago were advertising 300MBps, you may get 1-2MBps here, I got the same service at a few other "name brand" cheaper hotels in the area. Basically it's relatively quiet (my last stay was on Fremont St, noisy as hell! no sleep til 2AM) It's okay, but I don't think I'll stay here again.

Worst place to stay

Front desk service not professional. Eating and talking at the same time. They are not courteous and not helpful at all.

Shower

Shower water force was minimal. Only came out 2-3 inches. They were going to have maintenance check it, which did not help me that morning at checkout.

Shower.

When I turned on the shower, there was minimal pressure and the water only came out about three inches with no pressure. Front desk said they would have maintenance look at it, which did me no good at checkout.

Hotel hell

Room was DIRTY!!!! Booked hotel for five days, upon entering the room I regretted booking for so many days. The carpet was extremely dirty, and the restroom was worst. The sheets were never changed. There was no elevator so if you get a room upstairs you have to carry your luggage. The parking needs more lights and to be clean. I would never recommend this hotel and it should not be part of travelocity.

It's best to stay near, not on, the strip

The parking was free. The pool was open. A. O. K.
