This is an intown motel that was built in the 50s. If you are looking for an inexpensive place, this is it. What you save on price you may lose on cab fare from a rental car drop off location and cab fare to the airport. There are no bell men and the elevator may or may not work. I...

The Mardi Gras is reminiscent of 1970s motor inns seen on TV. It has a plain frontage which my taxi driver almost missed and the rooms are tired. The "casino" is really just a couple of banks of slot machines but, this having been said, the hotel's age and condition give it character and the rooms are adequate with air-con...

If you dont have to interact with reception you might find this budget motel suitable to your budget needs. Rooms are old and tired but reflect the budget price. The issue is that they advertise as "friendly". This is not the case. Had to deal at check in with Don. I have spent a lot of time in motels around...

We stayed here for 4 nights in late March 2017. Upon arrival there were some weird people that looked like junkies in the line checking in or something. I had my concerns at this point. Surprisingly, the rooms were clean and the fridges were nice. Kind of a Mexican feeling room and kind of a cool setup. There is on...

Stayed here for 7 nights as part of a stag do of 6 guys . Was a little worried before arriving due to reading some of the reviews on here. All I can say is that I needn't have been concerned. From the moment we arrived in Vegas to the moment we left we had nothing but good things to...

I work at the convention center quite a bit and like to stay close so that I don't have to wake up super early and deal with traffic. So last week I discovered that the Renaissance was filled but could squeeze me in for $750 a night! The Westgate (not so great) had no rooms. So, I searched Trip Advisor...
