Unkept room. Dust in corners. Very unfriendly staff. Pictures on Travelocity do not reflect the real place. And we had the Executive SUITE photos attached reflect true pictures No refund policy in place by travelocity despite us just booking it online 2 hours before our arrival Will never stay there again

Rented this room through Hotels.com. Pictures looked fine but what a misrepresentation it was! This is not a hotel but a three story Motel. The non-smoking room had burn holes all over the filthy carpet. The bedding had burn holes as well. I seemed to be an apartment that had been converted to a room and the "kitchen had 2...

Stayed here for 3 nights and was happy with what we paid for, saved a lot of money by staying at a hotel off strip but it still offered us a clean and basic good sized room. Nice area with a mcdonald's and a couple of petrol stations close by. Hotel has a free shuttle that runs till 10pm into...

The room was all good, but the wifi is terrible (especially considering that you have to pay extra money for it, and it is advertised as super-fast). Area of town is kind of dodgy. However, there is a free shuttle to and from the Strip, and also to the airport, which is very useful.

We had a room facing the pool area on a Monday night. When we checked in at about 7pm, we noticed speakers loudly playing music attached to the walkways around the rooms, including one right outside of our room. No big deal, it was early and we were going out. Upon returning to our room at 1am, we were tired...

Hey travel-family, took my family on a weekend getaway and found this deal on Groupon. Well it was very disappointing to say the least. This so-called hotel, looks like a motel, and from the look at the pictures I saw, i was deceived about the size of this "casino". It maybe has 20-30 machines. There is a large mirror on...

we needed a hotel for our first two nights in the US after a late night arrival. It was so cheap but you don't get more than what you pay for. In short: it's clean and everything you need is in the room. Equipment and everything is basic, no luxury but it's warm, quiet and you are close to the...

We were in Las Vegas on New Years Eve, ready to leave, and at the last minute decided to stay the night. We started searching for hotels, and found the Mardi Gras. I was expecting a real hotel/casino, but what I found was a motel with a couple slot machines in a smoke filled room. Staff was standoffish, the crowd...

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. We recognize that you have many options when selecting a hotel in Las Vegas. Although, perhaps not last-minute on New Year's Eve. We hope that the next time you visit you will select a hotel that ideally suits your needs and budget. Best wishes for a prosperous 2017.

We were in the lobby using the business center computer while Eddie was on shift. He was super helpful in getting us logged in but best of all he was funny and treated us like friends of his. Always appreciated. The wifi situation leaves a bit to be desired but only staying one night it didn't bother us too much.

I look forward to sharing your review with him and the other members of our guest services team. It is generous recognition such as you have offered that makes all of our efforts worthwhile.

While we fully intended to travel "budget", this place was cheap. There is a large difference between affordable accomodations and this cheap flea motel. The only positive is it is located off the strip in close proximity to the Convention Center and Monorail station, which is convenient to travel up and down the east side of the strip and walk...
