the place is older but some rooms are remodeled. the rooms are clean clothes irons, hair dryers and extra towels are available on request. coffee and pastries are available at the front desk. Joe, the front desk guy, is personable and the location is very close to the gondola. the price is reasonable for the location most places try to...

Clean, comfy beds. Clean bathroom. Dirty carpet & outside hallway. Blinds would not close and big windows means people could see in. Old property, could use a remodel. You're really paying for the location and was happy they don't have a minimum stay requirement.

This is starting from 3 stars. It is old. I barely see people staying there during Thanksgiving break. There is no hair dryer, no coffee pot, no closet and hangers. It just doesn't make sense that we cannot blow dry our hair and cannot have anything hot in our room in such freezing days and no where to hang our...

Again, I booked this location based on reviews from trip advisor. Wanted something within walking distance of Harvey's for concert. Searched on Trip Advisor map and found this as being the most reasonably priced. This is a small mom and pop place with no special frills or big lobby but if you can look past that we found our room...

To be honest this motel was mediocre - at most. The rooms were very small and the whole accommodation was very old. The beds were very uncomfortable but at least the rooms were some kind of clean. The owner was handsome but appeared some kind of confused. The stay was for one night alright but next time i would rather...

The hotel is going trough a major remodel but that didn't stop the staff from taking great care of us. Room was large and clean and had everything we needed. The location is convenient and close to lake and sights. We had a very nice stay.

Room was totally outdated and not very clean. We left the first morning of our 2 night stay to find vomit and feces next to the back stairs where the parking is. When we returned hours later it was still there and again the following morning. I understand the there is young people partying in the area but it should...

Our family just got back from staying here and was very satisfied. It was very comfortable and is located in a great location. This hotel is in walking distance to the Heavenly Village and all the Casinos. It is also walking distance to the beach. We felt secure with our car parked outside our window of our room. The staff...

The price and location of this place were fine, but everything else left much to be desired. The room was clean but bare bones...no place even to hang up clothes except for some pegs on the wall! We asked for an iron and got one, but they didn't have ironing boards. The TV was a flat screen but only played...

When we arrived, there was trash in the parking lot and there were trash bags sitting out in the hallways, probably from housekeeping. The television didn't work. The toilet seat was sliding off. There was no AC, just a portable fan. The bed sagged. We could smell cigarette smoke in the hall ways and there were cigarette butts at the...

We are so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay! We were unaware that you required a room with air conditioning, and would have done our best to accommodate this, had we been aware. We did, however, buy you a brand new fan; it was two days old. Unfortunately, since you arrived directly after July 4th, due to the...
